Bought my 1997 with 59,000 miles and have not looked back. Besides the oil changes and other "wear" maintainance, the only repair I had to do was a powersteering rack replacement. The car now has 112,000 and still going strong.
The sporty look of the 1997 XLE. My car has fog lights and it makes it sportier than other Camry's. Have not seen another one with them. Trunk space is great.
Paint job (paint peeling), leather seats are not comfortable on 600 mile trips, Better alloy wheels
