Default Purchasing a '99 Camry?

In a few months I'll have the opprotunity to buy my buddy's wife's '99 Camry
with 60K miles.
Donot know about extra installed options. It's been maintained by the
dealer. If I buy it what doi I have to look forward to
as far as maintenace costs? Does it have a timing belt or timing chain?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike,

They are great cars. I can't understand why they never took on in the
UK. On a 2.2i the cam belt should be changed about 63K miles but this
had been done on the 2000 one I bought a couple of years ago so I
couldn't guess a price. Another thing to watch for is the plug leads.
They caused misfire trouble at 100K+ and cost 80 for a new set.

Other than that you need to change to oil and wash the windows.
