1998 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


Review

Had been a truck person my whole life but took a new job with a lot of miles on the road and couldn't handle to cost of gas with my pickup. I bought this car with 60k on it and have it up too 209k now. Motor and trans run super strong and I get about 35 mpg on the freeway. Very reliable and drive about 5-600 miles a week on it. I change the oil regularly with ease and haven't had one problem with the motor. Only problem is the driver door handle on the inside broke and have to roll down the window to open the door from the outside. Also replaced the rear struts at 190k but did it myself with ease. I highly recommend this car to anyone that wants a great car with great mpg

Review

I bought this car new and now have 134,000 miles on it. I have not had a minutes trouble with it. I have had oil changes at 3000 mi. and do take care of it. It still has the original exhaust system and I replaced the battery last winter for the first time because I thought I was pushing my luck. I keep thinking I should replace it, but it's like owning a "free" car.


Best Features

Powerlocks, smooth driving, reliability. 30 miles to the gallon.


Worst Features

Toyota has cheapened quality over the years, the interior of car and truck is not very good. The seat belts don't retract most of the time, so get slammed in the door

1998 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan


Review

I LOVED my Camry when I bought it, but now I HATE it. The drivers side door handle has broken off twice, the drivers window does not like to roll up once it goes down, and the clear coat has chipped off of the hood. The only good thing about this car which I guess is the part that matters the most is that I have not had any mechanical issues. I have only had to do scheduled maintenance work. With 220,000 miles, I guess I can't complain too much about that.


Best Features

sunroof

better quality door handles, bigger trunk

Review

Vehicle was inherited from a family member in 2005 with about 35,000 miles on it then. It has performed extremely well and have put another 36500 on since then. The Camry is used mostly for driving within a 45 mile radius but has been driven on several 4000 mile trips over the last couple of years. It is not garaged since it is a third car, but the finish still looks good. Had to replace the catalytic converter a few months ago and the driver's window sometimes has a problem staying on track. Interior is flawless. Other than that nothing but normal maintenance.


Best Features

Gas mileage 26 city 34 hwy, large trunk, comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

Nada.
