This is NOT a sporty car
By Filo Snard on


1997 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan


Handling is woefully inadequate and
ride quality is far less than I had
expected from a Camry.
I can feel every bump, divot and
imperfection in the road. Replacing
all four struts didn't help the
problem. After owning
this car less than 3 years, I am
already planning its replacement, even
though when I bought it I had planned
to drive it for at least 6-10 years.
On the positive side, it is very roomy
and has a very comfortable interior
design. Controls are thoughtfully
layed out and cabin noise is very well

Best Features

The 200hp V6 engine has lots of low-end torque for good pick-up and still has lots of power even at 80mph.

Worst Features

Improved ride and/or handling - preferably both!
