Toyota Camrys are good cars. In a 1998 you just have to check all the usual things before buying. Do check it passed a smog test recently, that brings older cars undone in the USA. If you can give the engine a compression test, all readings should be within a 10% range.

Pay attention to front suspension wear, all the warning lights should work (any that don't may be hiding a fault), no excessive oil leaks from the cam cover, radiator top tank not cracked, rear swaybar bushings not worn, dogbone steady on the engine not worn, auto trans fluid not black and burned smelling, gear shifts not hard or hesitant, no gunk on the oil filler cap underside (that's engine sludge), no wetness under carpet in front, front driveshaft boots not split, steering rack end boots not split.

    But be cautious buying a Subaru in the range

    Impreza 1999 to 2011
    Forester 1999 to 2010
    Legacy 2000 to 2009
    Outback 2000 to 2009
    Baja 2003 to 2006

    These had dreadful head gasket problems in some cars.

I am planning to buy used Toyota Camry 2003 with 131K mileage on it. Can you please tell me common problems which I should be looking in it before buying the same.


This particular vehicle is very dependable and reliable. You will get normal maintenence issues brakes/belts etc. However, in my experience, I cannot think of any major issues this model has been troubled with. It would be a good idea to have a pro dp a pre purchase inspection to determine if there are any signs of collission or abnormal engine noises etc. before you by.

I have a hole in my engine how much does it cost to get a new engine for a 2000 camry le 4 door


That depends, are you going to put it in? Or buy one installed? There is a place on line that sells nothing but engines. JDM, I think, He has your engine for $900, app. We bought one from him, it worked great, no problem fit right in, fired right up, no problem whatsoever. We couldn't believe it, we were expecting to be making 20 trips to the parts store and killing ourselves trying to figure this thing out. Anyway, a shop will charge you big bucks for the motor swap. I would say about $3500 up, Hope this helps.

How did you get a hole in your engine? And how big is it? Is water coming out? Or oil?

I am buying a 2007 TOYOTA Solara with 18,000 miles. My question is should I spend the 1,400 dollars on the extended warranty for 7 yrs. / 75,000 miles?


Hello. Your answer is YES. My dealership sells these same plans all of the time, and the customers who have them are very happy with the coverage provided..

Here are a few points to consider:
The body computer is $1200.00
The throttle body motor is $900.00

The plan will replace these, and many other parts at no cost to you.

The extended contract is a very good thing to have.
