Toyota is Reliable Despite Quality Issue
By AlmostTRDCamry on


1998 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


I have owned this Camry for over 5
years. It has served as the most
reliable vehicle despite 3 major defects
that you wouldn't expect in a Toyota
(verified online). 1)Oxygen Sensor
2)Engine Gel 3)ISC Valve Fortunately,
these aren't expensive repairs, but
persist despite recommended maintenance
in the handbook. Despite not being able
to start the car reliably, the car will
run. Buy again? Not this one, it must've
been the worst generation. If you don't
like body roll, upgrade the tires to 16"
Kumho Ecstas, this is a major handling
upgrade. Major pet peeve, this car rides
low and scrapes steep driveways.

Best Features

Simple, ergonomic interior controls; soft ride; Volvo-like safety; comfy seats; great storage areas; reliability despite quality issues; easy self-maintenance setup; lasting, tasteful exterior

Worst Features

improve suspension (done); improve engine power (done); cloth interior causes static (improved); plastic parts brittle; supercharger for the 4cyl; improve long-term build quality
