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!!!

25

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!

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

Good gas mileage.  Quiet functional car.

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.

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.

Pros

V6, potential, doesnt attract the cops

Cons

auto gear change is a bit clunky, doesnt always stick to the road, fuel gage is all over the place when it gets below half

Nothing Fancy — despite looking like a family car, my white camry vienta has the potential to look hot, the flared wheel arches look pretty cool, the interior is a bit dodgy, in the process of taking off the very 90's styled carpet on the door and just leaving the trim bare. like the exterior i feel that its got a lot of potential to look hot given the time and money. the performance isnt bad, however id prefer a quicker reaction time on the accelerator, the car is surprisingly quiet, even at 150+ which takes effort to get up to. the handling for everyday driving is not poor, but adequate, but when taken on winding roads at speed it can start to get a bit iffy.
