1997 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


This is my 2nd Camry. I would definitely buy another. Only normal repairs & maintenance needed. Valve seals and head gasket all but cured a problem with excessive oil consumption problem at about 160k mi. There is no noticeable rust on the body and at 178k mi it still handles well. The biggest flaw is the seat belts that won't retract.

Best Features

I love my moonroof. I use it every day that it doesn't rain or snow. The driver's seat is adjustable for short (which I am) or tall even though it is not power.

Worst Features

I considered the seat belt not retracting a safety issue. The driver's seat belt stopped retracting at about 45k mi. and I was not able to get a dealer or Toyota to repair it without charge.
