1997 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan

Review

If you are like me, I was torn between the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. Both are very good cars, and you can't go wrong with either (probably). But the Accord is a bit more of a driver's car, it's handling a little stiffer and it's motor a little peppier (and a little noisier). Camry has a very smooth ride and is very quiet inside too. Camry owners have experienced some engine oil (sludge) problems, so if you choose an older model Camry, look inside the valve cover with a flashlight to look for black sludge. Also strut mount failures. You are looking at $250 per strut to fix!

Favorite Features

Very smooth and quiet ride. Very easy to drive.

Suggested Improvements

Fix engine propensity to sludge oil internally. Strut mounts are also a weak point. Most other car's strut mounts last the life of the car,why not Toyota?
