Engine -- Verified

The valve cover gaskets have a tendency to leak oil, especially the one near the firewall.

Drive Train -- Verified

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

1990 Toyota Camry Reviews

bought in 2012 with 240K miles for $900. Previous owner put new brake lines all-around. exhaust hole behind convertor only current must fix. AC doesn't work -- not sure if compressor or freon. interior holds up great - doesn't look 22 yrs old! lots of rust over wheel wells. engine is strong and A/T shifts smooth.
