Default Your Perception of Camry Quality 1993-Present?

My 1993 Camry V6 SE is , IMHO, a very well made car. Mine has only 68k on
it...it has never required anything above the normal maintenance.

I'm starting to look around... I might decide to trade it in soon...

For you mechanics and other knoweledable car types out there...do you think
I will be as happy with a 2005?

For starters, I don't think that the paint is as good on the new ones...

Thanks for any input...Chuck

I have owned a 1994 and a 1997 Camry. The 1994 was the best quality
car I have ever owned. I only sold it because we needed a bigger
vehicle. My experience has been the quality of the interior suffered
greatly with the redesign. I have no experience with the new
generation Camry but you should drive one around and see if it is as
quiet or the interior doesn't feel cheap compared to the 1993.

I'd see if I could rent one if at all possible.
at least you could perceive of the quality yourself that way.

My 94 Camry has 283000 miles and still runs great. Only MAJOR problem
I’ve had are replacing the transmission at 180K. Other than that it
has been just the scheduled maintenance. I love this car and know I
will never find another that runs as good for as long.

I'm with Art -- save your money. 68k miles in 12 years is low. Since
you don't drive much I don't see the need in buying new, especially
since you've had no problems.
