I will be there in a year or 2 with the B5Sharky said:
Really though for the first 150k miles it was pretty trouble free except (and I forgot to list this too) that it needed a new distributor at 120k or so. It would stall out after a rain. This is great you'll love this Sharky. I took it to my Toyota dealership (which except for this one problem they've been very good) and they could not find the problem, they replaced the wires, distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, wet the engine down but could not reproduce the car stalling out.Sharky said:Well Sullie, your car has been a comparative POS next to mine. In fact, less has went wrong with my current Cadillac compared to your Yoda, but I haven't had the Caddy too awfully long.
I'd be pretty ticked at several of the things you've listed as problems, 200k or not.
My Camry has none of the interior electrical issues you mention, shifts perfectly, does not smoke, etc. I was ticked at the motor mount failure at 175k, and my exhaust flexpipe isn't what it used to be, which irritates me a great deal.
Of course, it has been maintained to the Nth degree by Yours Truly.
I haven't done a single hose, which I think is weird.
One will probably pop this summer.
Having owned a 91' Camry prior to my 94', its fun to see how its gone for you.
I agree, after you explained it all out, the car was deffinetly not a POS. I had some of the same problems you did, namely the horns going out, and rust starting at the time around the bottom edges of the doors.
I also had the rear main seal replaced, because it had been leaking. Let me tell you, the labor killed me on that, it was like $120 in parts, and $900 in labor.
Overall a great car (mine was a V6), I no doubt would still be driving it today had it not been totalled in an accident.
Oh, one other thing I forgot I replaced on my 94' camry was the CV Boots on the front axle.
