1997-2001 Toyota Camry Pre-Owned

These problems aside, the previous generation Camry is a superb buy for the used car shopper. Mind you, you'll need to discard any inklings of getting a bargain. Owners and dealers alike know they can ask an extremely high price and close a quick sale without much haggling. That said there doesn't seem to be a lot of common sense in coming up with prices. In one case a dealer is offering a 1999 CE with 73,385 km for $18,864 while a competitive dealer shows a 1997 CE with 74,586 km for a stratospheric $18,495. This dealer is obviously feeling particularly optimistic, as the average 1997 Camry price is $16,700 including LE and XLE cars - albeit with slightly more on the odometer. Either way, expect to pay a premium price for a premium ownership experience.
