1998 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan


I needed a car with good gas mileage,is reliable and less than 10k. I prefer cars with some personality and some performance. I installed a set of progressive lowering springs (about 1.2 inches) What a difference and with little compromise to ride quality. Threw in a K&N filter. Well worth 30 some bucks for a couple hp, cooler growl from the motor and improved throttle response. Upgrade to some 215/55/16 all season tires and this car is now looks better handles and brakes better and sounds better on throttle. All for about $1500 bucks. TRD offers a supercharger for about $3500 installed. This car now becomes fast!

Best Features

V6 gas mileage actually as good, sometimes better than 4cyl. Unsurpassed transmission and engine combination. Smooth, quiet, comfortable. Everything surrounding the driver is where it belongs. Moon roof, 6 spkr cd system. Best pick for safety in 98- side air bags where available.

Worst Features

A little more lateral seat support. No external antenna- reception can be sub- par. Radio preset buttons are loose and could fall off. Far what this car was intended to do, it is nearly faultless
