The Kms Speak For Them Selves. — This car currently has 364000km on it.Has never had a tune up and starts every time no matter what the weather.Handles well and rode well but getting old and a little rough now.No major repairs after it's 12 year history. Nice style but not too exciting.Gas mileage has always been better than most cars even now.

My 97 Camry — This is a very reliable and good running Car. It's got 210,000 miles and still running strong. It has decent speed for a 4 cylinder and gets great gas mileage. Very fun to drive and has good handling. I would recommend camrys to a friend because they are well made cars. It does have some rusting on the wheel wells, and trunk but overall it still looks o.k.

The Late Camry — Overall a very good car, it got me place to place without having to shell out the cash to keep it running. It ran very well considering the punishment it took. It handled well enough but toped out at 115, leaving something to be desired. Braking and acceleration were moderate for the class but the strong point was it could take a good deal of punishment and in a high speed crash it does its job well.

Sound system and gas mileage

Cons

slow!!!

The Grandma Car — Its a 2.0 liter, so not very faster. It'll beat a civic or a focus no problem, but thats not saying much. Its a Toyota, so the thing never breaks, like ever. The sound system is by far the most badass this in it. And it drifts on dirt and snow, grandma car drifting!

No Longer Meets My Needs — I bought my Camry used in 2002 in Seattle, Washington. I used it primarily to get myself around the city, although I did some long trips in it, too, including a one-week drive across the country with my father as co-pilot. I really like a lot of things about the car: The inside is very quiet and comfortable, the trunk is gigantic, the controls are well laid out and effective, and other than having to replace the battery once, I haven't had any mechanical difficulties with it at all. But it's not at all a fun car to drive, and while it gets decent mileage for a 6-cylinder, it's a lot thirstier than I like with gas at $4 a gallon, particularly since Toyota recommends 91 octane or higher. My Camry was rock-solid reliable, but I want a car that will give me more feedback and involve me more in the process of driving, and I also want a car that will get better mileage on the cheapest gas I can put in it.

My Used Black 1997 Toyota Camry — This 97 car is in oveall fair condition inside and out. It has a decent steering system for turning corners and has an average manuverability on small roads and highways. The transmission, engine, braking system, shock, and suspension of this car are in good conditiion, as well as the car's paint job on the frame. The hood, grill, windows and front windshield, mirrors and front and rear headlights are also in good condition. The tires, hubcaps and rims are still in good condition as well for a used 97 road vehicle. The car's back trunk has a large storage capacity for items that need to be transported. The fuel tank capacity of this vehicle is 70L (18.5 gal.) for UNLEADED gasoline. The engine oil for this vehicle should be changed roughly every 3,000 miles or aprox. every 3 months. The engine of this car is a type 5S-FE engine that requires a recomeneded engine oil of type APISH or ILSAC engine oil.

Pros

Cons

Not enough power for my tastes

Solid Car — This was a lease car that we had for 2 years. They were running a special at the time because of the high residuals, so I thought I would try a lease. It had the ugly gold package, a sunroof, and an aftermarket trunk mounted 6 CD changer. I don't really care to lease again. This car was followed by a 1999 V6 Camry which I liked driving a whole lot better. There was there weird sound from below the car when driving in the rain and hitting a big puddle of water.

Pros

Ride, Noise, Design

Cons

Acceleration, Mice

For A Camry I Am Impressed — Very smooth, good controll, high miles but still runs nicely. If I wanted a sedan I might drive one myself. The acceleration is ok, I've had more. Still can't figure out how the mice are getting in.
