1997 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


I bought my '97 Camry a year ago from an old lady with only 35k on it. I figured it would be a smart investment because it would last a long time and I wouldn't have to take a loan out on it. One year later I haven't had any real issues. It blows blue smoke after it's been sitting awhile, but it clears right up. It also burns oil, but it's understood these cars are known for that problem. It is in almost mint condition, the metallic paint is still glossy and shiny without any real signs of fading. The only real complaint I have about this car is that it has absolutely no balls. The 2.2 liter engine has no gusto. I heard that Camry's V6 rectifies this problem quite nicely. A

Best Features

Reliability, interior room.

Worst Features

Fix the oil burning problem. Make the 2.2 liter engine more peppy.
