1998 Toyota Camry Sedan 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 Sedan 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 Sedan 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.

Review

My parents bought this car in August 2001 and they gave it to me in August 2006. Great car and great reliability. Drove it back and forth 350 miles each way every weekend for two months between mid April and mid June. The only thing that needed to be replaced was the rear strut.


Best Features

Reliability, gas mileage, plenty of legroom (I am 6'3), drives great, comfortable ride, fun to drive.


Worst Features

Bumps are noticable even with the replaced struts, higher suspension.
