Default Lucky me Camry (1993 XLE V6)

Hi there kids.

I know that Camry lovers will want to welcome me to the group not
because I am anything, but man is my new car cool! I am fortunate to
have just bought a 1993 Camry XLE V6 with all (I think all) the
extras--and only 91K miles!

My baby has leather from stem to stern, really clean inside and out,
Toyota CD/Cass. & 6 Speakers, that punchy V6...I compared it to the
'93 Lexus ES300 on Cars.com and there wasn't much difference.

I paid right at $4,300 and have done on CV axle for about $200 and
changed the tranny juice. I am very pleased. I left a 95 Nissan
truck for this ride so you can undestand why I think I'm livin large
now!

Hey, thanks for letting me post, and I look foward to much messaging
and help. I hope I can help too, even though I'm just getting my butt
used to the leather...so to speak.

Boden

Nice car. Mines a basic model and I wish it had electric windows for that
errant passenger who insists on alighting from the vehicle without winding
the @$#%ing window up again.

You may wish to contemplate changing the coolant as well.

Ha! Yes, it is handy to have ULTIMATE WINDOW POWER! The only
annouyance I've found is a little water leaking in the trunk and the
carpet on the underside of the trunk lid is coming loose...needs some
of those little rivet things.

Coolant eh? Allright, I'll keep that in mind thanks.

Say, are your seatbelts a bit soft on the retraction? What can be
done?

Yeah, coolant that has passed its life (they come in different ages
depending on how much glycol is in it) will allow rusting of steel fittings
and corrosian probs.

Mine are OK, but I've had that problem in other cars. Perhaps some-one else
may have a fix for this??

You are a lucky man! In February, my '93 v6xle met an untimely end in a
snowstorm-related incident, and wanted to get another v6xle--newer, maybe
'99-'00--but it had to be a v6xle.

I put at least 4 dealers onto this, searching the auctions up and down the
eastern seaboard for almost a month before a) i hated the rental Saturn and b)
there just weren't any to be had and settled for my (you'll just have to take
my word on this) 2d choice--a Lexus ES300.

Enjoy your car and hang on to it; this configuration is as scarce as they say
it is!
