1998 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan

Review

I have owned this Camry for over 5 years. It has served as the most reliable vehicle despite 3 major defects that you wouldn't expect in a Toyota (verified online). 1)Oxygen Sensor 2)Engine Gel 3)ISC Valve Fortunately, these aren't expensive repairs, but persist despite recommended maintenance in the handbook. Despite not being able to start the car reliably, the car will run. Buy again? Not this one, it must've been the worst generation. If you don't like body roll, upgrade the tires to 16" Kumho Ecstas, this is a major handling upgrade. Major pet peeve, this car rides low and scrapes steep driveways.

Favorite Features

Simple, ergonomic interior controls; soft ride; Volvo-like safety; comfy seats; great storage areas; reliability despite quality issues; easy self-maintenance setup; lasting, tasteful exterior

Suggested Improvements

improve suspension (done); improve engine power (done); cloth interior causes static (improved); plastic parts brittle; supercharger for the 4cyl; improve long-term build quality
