1998 Camry.  Trademe's current market value @ $2,000. 

They don't recall a timing belt has been done.  They bought in 2008 with 90,000 on the odometer and it's now 208,000. 

The drive belt and the power steering belt was done last year when the car wouldn't start at the supermarket carpark.  One of them says, due to the age of the car is it worth the bother or just get another car in time. 

Probably a $800 job - timing belt, tensioners, seal and the water pump.
Let alone flush the trans $350 or spend more money in flushing the brakes, coolant etc if they are performing now. 

Cost them $5,500 at time of purchase.

I have a 89 Toyota corona. these cars have recessed valves so if the belt does go (as mine did) no damage to the engine and simply needs a new one put in.

but anyway a Toyota shouldn't cost to much to get a new cam put in
