The Bottom Line: This car is wonderful. Give it a test drive and you will have to buy. Well worth the money.

I am the proud owner of a 98 Camry LE and I just love it. I had a Celica until recently and you could not have gotten me away from that car with a crowbar, but a Blazer managed to reduce it by half and the insurance company would not repair it. However, ... read more

Pros: Proven reliability, Quiet & Powerful V-6 engine
Cons: Unpleasant inside and out, Everyone has it, A FEW standard features offered.

We all know about the Toyota Camry, "The Best Selling Mid-size Sedan in the U.S."...Even though I was turned off by its unpleasant exterior design, I said I'd give it a shot test driving it for our next family car. We previously also tested sleek 1998 ... read more

Nov 14, 2000 - Updated Feb 25, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Quiet & Smooth. Refinement beyond all expectations
Cons: About as sporty as your fax machine
The Bottom Line: Amazing level of mechanical refinement. Unfortunately, it's about as sporty as a fax machine.

So you drool all over your neighbor's Lexus ES300, but you two college kids to support. What to do? The answer: buy a Camry V6. It's mechanically identical to the Lexus, minus 6 grand. What a deal. The car in question here is the Camry CE V6. ... read more

Pros: Gas mileage, overall comfort, acceleration and performance

First off, this isn't my car but my Mom's. Even though I just bought a new 2001 Chevy S-10, I'm still a little envious. This car gets phenomenal gas mileage. It averages about 35 MPG, in the city! That beats my old Chevy Metro! But then ... read more

Pros: Looks nice, smooth ride, little maintanence

I own a Camry LE, 1998. This was probably one of the best buys carwise anyone could hope to make. It's worth its weight in gold basically. Save for a trip to mechanics to fix a headlight, I haven't had any problems with this car. It's still like I ... read more
