Excellent Car — I liked this car and it went 280,000+ miles before I encountered a transmission problem. I have not driven it since April 2014 and repairs would take about $2,000+. I am still saving for the repair costs as I'd like to keep it as a second car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good performance

Cons: Transmission can go bad

Highly Recommended — Overall an excellent, dependable and comfortable vehicle with a very smooth quiet interior. Fun and safe to drive. Feel in control when driving it. The 4 cylinder doesn't quite have the peppy acceleration of the older models but it's no slouch. Low maintenance. Highly recommended used car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very smooth ride. Have driven the 96 model and earlier ones and their suspension doesn't compare.

Cons: Not as economical as previous models but still very good on gas. Doesn't look as unique as the older models.

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

Pros: Fuel economy was awsome.

Cons: None

Would Buy Again But Produced In Janapan 4 Cylinder Or V6 — Reliable record Low maintenance cost Great in snow with right tires Great on highway Great sound isolation Good AC Great metal treatment, not like new Camries Like head lights Like seats Like brakes and ABS (great in snow) etc 4 cylinder engine in US made models is underpowered Most Toyota dealer will try to sell you something you do not need

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great reliable car.

Cons: 4 cylinder engine in US made models is underpowered

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.

Pros: Cheap maintenance.

Cons: Not very sporty.

Sexy, No. Everything Else? Yes. — I miss my Toyota Camry. My Camry rocked, it also saved my bacon in a bad crash. So, reliable, powerful enough, nice acceleration, decent handling, not the belle of the ball, but bottom line, the best, safest car I've owned.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best car I've owned.

Cons: He wasn't pretty.
