1997 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan


Review

I cannot imagine having loved a car more than this one....19 years and 245,000 miles later, I wish I could keep it forever, but it is time for me to get a new car and pass this on to someone who really needs it and can't afford one!

Our car only has 135,000 miles on it. Almost not a single problem the whole time for 18 years. Excellent car to own.

Car was bought in 2001 had 64k miles at purchase, now has 162,285 miles on it and so far still going strong. Car is now 18 years old and counting. I'm still driving it. Totally reliable and dependable strong. Will definitely buy another Toyota whenever this one stops working. That's my Teddy he is strong and smooth runs like a champ

Review

Ive had 2 camrys, a 99 and a 97. both are extremely reliable but ive had a couple of quirks with mine. i dont know if anyone else has had the problem. The starter wouldnt engage on either one from time to time, quick fix just tighten the cables on the starter. The other is the flex exhaust coming right of the headers burns out. Both of the issues happened to both of them. cheap quick fixes. Looking for a new one because the previous owner left my 97 sitting for over 2 years and it rotted the seals (would happen to any car) and i seem to pouring money to fixing seals here and there. My cars are just bad luck though, these have a record of going 300,000+ and i just wish my car was maintan


Best Features

gas millage interior smooth ride, practically floats solid transmission cheap maintenance roomy back seat quiet reliable motor


Worst Features

wish the 2.2 had a little more power or at least aftermarket options. headlights fog heavy car, doesnt handle snow very well because it sits so low

Review

I wrote a review awhile back on here, which was positive, but I think I need to re-iterate. I've had my Camry for 5 years and put on 65,00+ miles and it has not left me stranded once, period. I've had to replace a few things here and there, but mostly just routine maintenance is all she's needed. After 17 years her metallic paint is still shiny.


Best Features

Durability, quality, reliability, good in snow.


Worst Features

Nothing, really. However I wish sometimes it was a hatchback.
