I bought this car in 2003 and still have it today. It had 51,000 miles when I bought it and it now has 290,000 miles. It has been in a few accidents, the body it beat up but the engine is a diamond. No noise and run perfectly. Door handles broke off, inside and out. Old Reliable still has more life let in it. I'm keeping this car forever, until the wheels falls off. This car will give you your money's worth. Low maintenance costs in the 13 years I've had this car.
Ive had 2 camrys, a 99 and a 97. both are extremely reliable but ive had a couple of quirks with mine. i dont know if anyone else has had the problem. The starter wouldnt engage on either one from time to time, quick fix just tighten the cables on the starter. The other is the flex exhaust coming right of the headers burns out. Both of the issues happened to both of them. cheap quick fixes. Looking for a new one because the previous owner left my 97 sitting for over 2 years and it rotted the seals (would happen to any car) and i seem to pouring money to fixing seals here and there. My cars are just bad luck though, these have a record of going 300,000+ and i just wish my car was maintan
Car was bought in 2001 had 64k miles at purchase, now has 168,285 miles on it and so far still going strong. Car is now 18 years old and counting. I'm still driving it. Totally reliable and dependable strong. Will definitely buy another Toyota whenever this one stops working. That's my Teddy he is strong and smooth runs like a champ. STILL RUNNING STRONG NO MAJOR PROBLEMS LOVE IT. Would love a new Camry if I could afford it. But I will keep this one. Still looks great.Teddy still going STRONG NO MAJOR ISSUES????
Just bought my 1997 Camry with 129k miles after doing a lot of research.
The unsurpassed reliability of these vehicles speak for themselves.
I bought from the original owner who only replaced it because he bought a new one.
I love the extra power of the V6.
It's got a lot of pep.
Not sure about mileage yet, but guessing somewhere in the low 20s.
All I know if I've got a car with potentially another 150k or more to go.
Can't beat that for what I paid.
Thanks Toyota for making quality vehicles in a sea of mediocrity.
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
