Great Used Car
By ClayFromCarlisle on


1997 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car a little over a
year ago, and it has been an absolute
joy to drive. Right now, the odometer
reads 124,000 miles, and it looks,
rides, and drives like it has 50,000
miles. As far as problems, there have
been none except for a bad speaker.
All maintenance has been performed on
time. By the way, the oil sludge
problem is highly overrated. There is
an 8 year / unlimited mile warranty on
suspect engines. Toyota has gone out
of their way to ensure customer
satisfaction. As far as the whiners
who submit reviews, GET OVER IT. Cars
cost money to maintain. The Camry is
no exception. However, it has cost
less than most cars on the market.

Best Features

RELIABILITY is by far the best feature. You have to pay a premium for these cars, but they deliver much better reliability over the long haul. If you are looking for a good new car, buy a Passat. If you buy used, get a Camry.

Worst Features

Needs more features such as auto climate control, grab handles all around, and better interior lighting. Overall, a great used car. This car has much better long-term reliability than most other cars on the road.
