I bought my 1997 Camry new in '97 and it is still going strong today (2016). The only issues I have had was to replace the spark plug wires at 110,000 miles, up until that time I still had the original wires. The intermittent wiper control bar malfunctioned at around 105,000 miles, so I replaced it. The paint on both side mirrors began to peel off, so I had to repaint them. My driver side inside door latch broke, so I had to replace it. Other than those minor issues I have not had any problems other than normal maintenance. It still runs like new at 120,000 miles. I plan on keeping this car until it falls apart, but I don't see that happening. I am retired now and don't do a lot of driving so I know it will last longer than I will. I love my Camry!
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. STILL RUNNING STRONG NO MAJOR PROBLEMS LOVE IT. Would love a new Camry if I could afford it. But I will keep this one. Still looks great.
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
smooth ride, practically floats
roomy back seat
wish the 2.2 had a little more power or at least aftermarket options.
heavy car, doesnt handle snow very well because it sits so low
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.
Durability, quality, reliability, good in snow.
However I wish sometimes it was a hatchback.
This is a good and reliable car.I've not owned it long.about 6k now and so far just had to replace the transmission seal gasket-$150.the struts upper spring seat(this is it)has to be replaced it's a 20 dollar part for each side (kyb)and the noise stops.http the part is here. ://www.ebay.com/itm/Monroe-Front-Left-Right-Upper-Strut-Mount-With-Bearing-/181103286083?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model%3ACamry&hash=item2a2a98d743&vxp=mtr.
I ike the easy steering.the brakes are good but a bit touchy.engine uses oil and so it leaks an I heard a head gasket and a valve seat has to be replaced for that.
make the steering more communicative.fix the oil leak and the suspension.It would be an very reliable if done so.
