Toyota Camry Sportivo 2003: Jumpy when started

Answered by CarsGuide 14 Jun 2019

Is it ‘jumpy’ every time you start it, or perhaps only when the engine is cold? If it is the latter it could be that it’s not getting the correct enrichment and that could be a temperature sensor issue on the motor. If it happens every time you start up it could be that the engine needs a tune-up.

Reliable used 4-cylinder cars?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Apr 2017

With a limited budget like yours I would suggest to go for a car with a good reliability record. While the Mercedes-Benz is a good car you are likely to be facing an expensive repair if anything should go wrong. Consider a Mitsubishi 380 or a Toyota Camry of around 2000-2003.

Toyota Corolla or Toyota Camry: Which is better for towing?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Dec 2014

First you need to know the total weight of the trailer when it's loaded with everything you want to take with you when you go camping. It could easily sneak up to close to the Corolla's limit of 950 kg. You have to think of safety when towing, and it doesn't matter that you will only tow short distances or do it twice per year. I would tend to go for the Camry, it has a higher towing rating, it is a heavier vehicle and therefore more stable, and I think safer for your needs.

Toyota Camry 2003: Is it a good used buy?

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Aug 2014

Toyotas are generally solid and reliable cars, but like all cars they can have troubles. On an old car like the 2003 you have to expect that it will have a greater risk of breakdown than a newer car. The trade puts the retail price of a 2003 Camry four-cylinder at $3000-$4000, but that would be top money.
