1997 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


I purchased my car in mid 1998. Everything started going good, until the year 2002. My transmission has failed twice, leaving me broke and stranded. My gasket is always leaking no matter how much I get it replaced. The window motors hesitate to go up or down. The driver door handle broke on the outside, which means I have to get wet in the rain or do extra work to open the door from the back. Not to mention I had it fixed twice. To add to my misery, the passenger door can not open from the inside, causing the passenger to put the window down with my hesitant motors. The interior is falling apart, but I only average about 5,000 miles a year!

Best Features

The ride is smooth, the paint isn't bad, the seats are comfortable, and there is a lot of room

Worst Features

Better gasket, door handles, better interior
