1997 Toyota Camry CSi 2.2 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Another fine (if boring) car from Toyota
Nothing really, I haven't had it long enough to really say, but I had a few globes replaced, and a service (which it didn't really need) that's about it.
This Camry handles better than it's MK-III predecessor (holds onto the wet road better I suppose) but it feels underpowered compared to the MK-III. Doesn't seem to have the same acceleration. And the general build feels cheaper than my '93 Executive Camry. Wish I had bought a Vienta...
The heating controls are somewhat harder to access, and very hard if the car is in 'Park'. And when I close the boot I don't like the sound of the lid closing. Otherwise, little to complain about; it drives OK, it's fairly classy looking, quiet inside, and has good economy.
If I have any real gripe about this model of Camry it's that it is very boring all round. Get the V6.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
