1997 Toyota Camry CE V6Review
Appearance:
Performance:
Quality:
Overall:

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.

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

Good, Not Great, Car By timothytre

After 6,000 miles of ownership, I have to say that a Camry is simply a Camry. Known for its reliability and fuel economy and not too much more. While the car has more style and better lines than its p... Read More

Excellent Car Overall And Comes With Big Fuel Savings By hiltyga

The best thing about this car is the fuel savings. I average just right under 40 mpg for in-town stop and go (Atlanta) traffic. This was huge for me because I was getting about 18 mpg with my BMW. ... Read More

Worst Car That I Have Ever Driven And It Was Almost New! By MichaelTK
