1998 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought our Camry used with 65,000 miles on it, and put on another 65,000 so far. This is easily the best car I have owned in my 30 years of driving. It is still like new, very few squeaks or rattles. Very few problems - burned out light bulbs, other minor items. I figure another 65,000 miles and we will pass it on to our kid.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet, and comfortable. Tracks straight as if it were on rails. The V6 leaves the tin-can muffler crowd watching my tail-lights. Extraordinarily reliable.


Worst Features

Leather seats need heaters.

1998 Toyota Camry CE 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my fourth Toyota. Have never owned anything but Toyotas. While it's not my favorite (options, luxury), it has been my most reliable. Bought it with 41,000 Has 192,000 on it now. This one has needed the least amount of repairs compared to my others. Still going strong, still gets excellent gas mileage (it's a manual, which helps)! Other than a few rattles, this one has lots of miles left in it!


Best Features

Reliability. Gas mileage

1998 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan


Review

Excellent 4 door sedan. It is as smooth, quiet and comfortable as most luxury sedans, and despite being nine years old with over 100,000 miles, still drives and looks like a new car. The gas mileage is better than many smaller cars (27 in town, 35 highway), and this vehicle is still roomy and comfortable for four good sized adults. The four cylinder engine has better power than I would expect, and handling is not bad for a family sedan.


Best Features

Comfort, perfect reliability (everything works like new, well designed interior and dash, nice power moonroof, very good factory sound system, highly adjustable power seating, great gas mileage, tight turning radius, decent trunk space, nice back seats with fully adjustable headrests.


Worst Features

Nothing of any consequence. The car has somewhat bland styling, but who cares from the driver's seat?

1998 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


Review

Well at 80k a new engine due to oil sludge, Toyota covered it but not assuring. Lots of little cheap trim that broke and bubbled. Exterior gold emblems all cracked and peeled, paint didnt hold up at all, mottled and splotched. Sheet metal is incredibly thin, had to drill out the license plate bolts cause they rusted in place.


Best Features

Great gas mileage.


Worst Features

Better finish, stop cutting corners to save a penny.
