1997 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


I bought this car for my wife from an elderly couple who had bought it new. It had less than 70K on it. I didn't look it over a closely as I would normally because of Toyota's reputation. I later discovered an annoying rattle in the front end that turned out to be strut mounts, it burns and leaks oil, I go through four quarts of oil before its due for an oil change. The transmission does not seem to shift properly, especially on uphill grades on the highway. Despite these few let downs I am fairly pleased with its overall performance. It is above par when it comes to road manners, very plush ride, and effortless to drive. It does quite well on gas too usually gets about 28/32 city and highway

Best Features

auto lock and unlock doors, auto down drivers window, will not let you lock your keys in the ignition, has very strong brakes, and roomy back seats.

Worst Features

The Camry has come a long way since '97, I think any issues have been addressed with the newer models.
