1997 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan

Review

We have two Camry's. The other is a 93 XLE V6. They are both very reliable and problem free. However I think the 97-2000 have very poorly designed headlamps. I tried replacing bulbs without success. It's the receptacle itself. The '93 puts out 100% more light than this model. The '97 upper suspension mounts broke at 100,000 miles. The brakes are not that great, needs improvement. When tires are less than 50% tread, the car veers too much either way depending on the road grade. No problem with new tires. Honda's suspention have better tracking. Will not hesitate to buy Toyota over Honda....others out of the question.

Best Features

Rust free even after all these years (even on my 93). Even the exhaust pipe looks new....very rare on a Honda. Don't know why there so much difference in rust protection. I like the overall shape/design of the 97, minus the taillights (except 2001). Overall fit, especially the doors.

Worst Features

VVTI is long long overdue. Honda's been at it for 10 years now what's the matter? i.e. Reliable but low tech engine. The rear seat's headrests block backward visibility. Same thing with those ugly spoilers.
