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: Ride, Noise, Design

Cons: Acceleration, Mice

1997 Toyota Camry CE V6Review

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
