Think twice before you buy one
By I Hate Camry on


1997 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan


Prior to purchase my Camry, I heard
many good things about it, was I wrong?
136 Hp for the size of this car is a
joke. My 93 Nissan Altima has 156 Hp.
It screamed, when I needed to
3 Months after I bought, it needed a
front and back brake system.
1 month later, strut mounts and @ 90K
the struts needed to be replaced.
Dealer said struts last 90K. I have a
93 Nissan Altima w/ 150K everything is
still original.
@ 92K the electrical system started
acting funny. It kept draining my
battery. Thanks to Sears, they replaced
battery twice under warranty.
If you think this is a good, reliable
car, my answer is: You have never seen
and driven a good car.
