    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

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It can take your family to where your goin.

    Cons: it isnt fun to drive and its not the best looking.
