Toyota Camry (1991–1995)

What's good

Toyota was rated by Motor Warranty Direct as Britain's 3rd most claim-free used marque.

BMW, Toyota and Ford jointly suffered the fewest breakdowns attended by German ADAC during 2001.

Toyota had fourth lowest average cost in warranty claims for cars up to 10 years old in 2002 Warranty Direct index

What to watch out for

Estates discontinued and saloons only available to order from Sept 1995.

Not much goes wrong, so look for signs of abuse, such as towing something heavy or carrying heavy loads. Make usual checks of front suspension geometry - look for signs of uneven tyre wear and make a reverse-turn in both directions to check for driveshaft clonks.

3VZ-FE V6 fitted to the Camry 3.0, 1991-01 and the Lexus ES300 suffers head gasket problems that lead to rusting of the bores.
