Neat — What didn't I like. Had awsome mileage but was quick and peppy. Never left me stranded, very minor issues with it at all. I heard it is still running around out and about would love to get her back. Would love to get the 35 city 40 highway again

Cheap maintenance.

Cons

Not very sporty.

1997 Camry Xle V6 — Good car, with enough power for daily use. Easy and cheap to maintain and insure. Steering is direct, you always know where the wheels are pointed. The car is relatively fun to drive. Handling can be improved by putting aftermarket suspension. Power can be increased by adding a TRD supercharger.

Very Reliable

Electrical Issues

Reliable Ride — Very reliable car. Toyota knows how to build something solid. I would probably buy something like this in the future. Now they come a lot bigger and much more horse power. Overall I would rate it a A minus :D

If You Want A Family Car With Good Gas Milage This Is It. — It is a good family car, it ran good, the person we sold it to just took it to the junk yard last year. It wasnt very good looking, but it was built good, It had the best gas milage cant beat it. It is really not fun to drive.

paod 700 bucks for it

Cons

no reasons

Reliable — Its a car that has enough torque to keep you moving and light enough to play a little meanwhile you can drive it anywhere on as little gas as possible. It accepts a 3.0 L IMZ-FE V6 that can handle a TRD supercharger for some real inspired driving.

Pros

Quality, comfort, powertrain, cost of ownership

Cons

Not too great of gas mileage, but not bad for V6

Toyota Camry Le V6 — Acceleration was pretty good, since it had a 3.0L V6. It was very reliable. For the few years we've owned it, I don't recall any repairs. It looks.. typical Toyota. It was cheap to own other than gas mileage. It wasn't fun to drive, but neither are most Toyota's.
