Review

Great car it has over 190,000klm and still runs great. Never a doubt that it will breakdown needs a little more strength for highway travel with 5 occupants along with better suspension. Reliability is what makes this car great at my dealership a man owns a camry with over 600,000klms and he "drives the hell out of it" the exterior will go before the engine

just a couple of leaks

Review

90000 miles now, no major problems. A couple of oil leaks at the oil pan and valve cover, a steering leak in the rack and pinion. Steering very responsive, excellent gas mileage. 21 city, usually 30+ hwy even at an average of 80 mph! Fairly cheap insurance, very cold a/c even on the lowest setting. Just put on new brakes and rotors at a cost of $180. Only mechanical problem is the parking brake light on the instrument panel stays on sometimes. Front wheel drive makes it easy through the snow too.

Review

Drove it 4300 miles in six days after 9/11 ferrying emergency personel for government organization. Averaged over 700 miles a day. Stopped only to change oil. Never a problem. This is fifth Toyota in our family since 1968. Wife still drives 1988 Corolla and swears by it.

Poor Man's Lexus - A true Toyota

Review

Had this car for almost a year now and reads 98,000mi on it with no problems whatsoever. Just replaced the timing belt. there is a whining sound on the wheels that I don't seem to understand. The dealer said that the wheel bearing work fine and I replaced four new tires, and still the whining is still there. I compared it to my wife's Solara and she doesnt has this problem in her car.but like other consumers, engine is very quiet,strong, responsive and similar to the ES300, and the earlier Avalon models, if I am not mistaken. Excellent performance on the freeway. I never get tired of driving this car and I plan to keep this car forever!

Review

well...i bought my camry in 1999 which had 62k miles..and now has 117k miles.. i had no problems at all with this car for all this time...its so amazing... since i work as a auto wholesale, i see lots of cars with better looks and feel than this camry....but with no regrets, i am staying with my camry...with this much mileage, i'm thinking about hooking the car up a little...I used to love the looks of the car, but now...it just looks so boring...either way, its one of the best cars out there~

Great Used Car

Review

I purchased this car a little over a year ago, and it has been an absolute joy to drive. Right now, the odometer reads 124,000 miles, and it looks, rides, and drives like it has 50,000 miles. As far as problems, there have been none except for a bad speaker. All maintenance has been performed on time. By the way, the oil sludge problem is highly overrated. There is an 8 year / unlimited mile warranty on suspect engines. Toyota has gone out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. As far as the whiners who submit reviews, GET OVER IT. Cars cost money to maintain. The Camry is no exception. However, it has cost less than most cars on the market.
