I purchased this vehicle off the show room floor and still love how it looks after 10 years. It is fun to drive and lots of room inside makes it comfortable for long trips. Trunk is huge compared to most and I love the fact the seats fold down for the larger items. I have done minor repairs compared to most, timing belt, brakes, tires, and batteries, normal wear and tear items.
Folding rear seats are great, lots of room inside. You can really stuff the trunk and have room to spare. Great body style.
The only think I can think to improve is the cup holder placement which gets in the way when you put the vehicle in park.
This is a great car... I use it to get to work everyday and it gets great gas mileage even for being a pretty big sedan in urban environment (24-26 mpg). The two door coupe is great for me because one big door lets me get in and out of the car easily (I'm 6'3" tall). I also enjoy just enjoy taking it out for a cruise because the styling is pretty good for a ten year old car. My car has the sunroof/moonroof 3-disc CD changer and cruise control... perfect for long rides. The ride is very smooth especially at highway speeds. I just had a simple tune up on the car and it rides even better now... it will drive at 70mph at only 2200- 2500 rpm's. This is a great, comfortable, affordable car
Sunroof/moonroof, CD player, cruise control, two doors (instead of four), plenty of trunk space
Some minor things are going bad... passenger side window is slow going up or down and probably just needs to be checked out, the auto antenna has broken and now kinda sinks down every once and a while. And I look forward to the 'up right' sitting style of the newer Toyotas
This was the first 2-door Camry that I
could ever recall. It certainly was as
relaxing as the sedan, but the
expectation of a coupe is different
than that of a sedan. But, what
compensated for that lack of was the
Lexus-like quietness of the cabin and
the smooth ride quality of a Lexus.
The only negative experience I had
with it was a defective cold valve
that wouldn't open and cause the
engine to die during cold starts. The
dealer wasn't very cooperative. Other
than that I am satisfied with the
- Trunk Space is Plentiful
- 4-Cylinder Felt As Smooth & Powerful
as some competitor's 6-Cylinder's
- Automatic transmission is smooth
- Open Door Light Markers
- Insurance is lower than most other
- Manual transmission only available
with DX Model
- Stiffer suspension preferred, since
it's a COUPE
- Styling a bit on the bland side
- Too much resemblance to the SEDAN
I have put more than 100,000 miles on
an already used Camry and never had a
bit of trouble with this car! I enjoy
the powerful acceleration since I drive
mostly highway miles. At 153,000
miles, only a few minor electrical
problems have surfaced -- I call that a
V6 engine, fold-down back seat for
hauling big items, sporty look, power
My power door locks no longer work
reliably, and my trunk lock got
corroded from the inside by salt spread
on roads during Cleveland weather, and
my tail-lights on the spoiler no longer
work -- electrical problems...
