Way better than the 07 XLE V6
By SJTim on


1997 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan


Bought new in 6/97 and have been extremely happy since. Been to the garage only twice for the steering leak and suspension. Still running strong at 155K as of 3/10. Got rear- ended in 07, legally totaled but mechanically perfect. Hoped a repeat experience and bought a top-of-the- line 07 XLE V6 w/Nev from the insurance money, but the 07 is no where close to this one in terms of build quality and had it traded in <3 yrs. Fortunately, I've kept this one. I'll keep it until it dies, if it ever happens. Too bad and sad, Toyota is not making Camry the same way any more. ATTENTION CURRENT OWNERS: Do yourself a favor, don't trade this 97 with a latest model of Camry. This one is unbeatable.

Best Features

Very quiet V6. Top grade interior material even by 2010 standards. Reliability. Full length removable floor mat runs under the gas pedal.

Worst Features

Folding outside mirrors. Better OE tires(General).
