I purchased this car with 177,000 miles on it for $2600. I was concerned I didn't get the best deal i could have, but after just a few weeks of ownership, i know this car will last until the 300k mark with minimal maint. The first 18 gal tank of gas provided me with 460 miles of driving pleasure, upon refuel, i found out I still had 3 gals. left in the tank. that's 25mpg combined, probably closer to 28 mpg had I finished the tank off. that is very respectable my my standards, as I'm a truck person. the is quite a bit of road noise but nothing the stereo doesn't drown out. i plan on flushing the trans, and putting high-mileage synthetic fluids in from here on out, hope to keep it as long as can.
cruise control! I'm a man of simple pleasures so i don't need much more than that.
factory map lights for the driver and passenger, I'm sure this is fixed for the 2011 model year, but still, even my 1995 Tacoma has map lights. drivers seat is uncomfortable for long trips, but really, which car isn't uncomfortable after 300 miles w/out stopping?
I bought this car in 9/09 to replace my dying 91 Accord with 232k miles. The only reasons I got it was because its a well priced one owner car with 90k miles. I wasn't even considering a Camry in my entire car search. 7/10 and 25k miles later this car is still going STRONG. Only thing I've done is my oil changes and replaced the tires. Car performs adequate, has enough storage space, and is INCREDIBLY reliable, but it is a Toyota. I plan to keep it for years to come and get it to the same mileage as my Accord had, unless I find a cheap Lexus IS 300 to buy. ;)
26 average gas mileage city/highway, and i've got a heavy foot so that could be higher for someone else. Interior comfort. Great factory stereo. Holds the road at 80+mph with ease, and with very little road noise. Great turning radius. The white color is more of a pearl white then egg shell white.
Passenger seat belt doesn't retract automatically, I have to feed it in. Gas petal sticks every few times and requires excess pressure to get the petal down. Just annoying, doesn't affect the drive. Other than that, no problems!
I've had this car for almost 4 years and I haven't had to do anything besides basic upkeep. It's been in a couple fender benders and those only caused cosmetic damage! the only problem I have is it's hesitant to start during the winter but the hood is bent from a wreck. Only problem with the car is it's very boring to drive. It's a great car that lasts forever and gets you from A to B
I bought this car in 2002 and have had it for over 8 years now. No major mechanical problems outside of typical wear and tear (tires, brakes, struts). Did have to replace valve cover gasket and timing belt which was expensive. Car has 146,000 miles and running strong. I love the V6 power; yet hate the 18 mpg in the city driving.
This was my second car; first was a 91 Civic LE. After it died suddenly, I had 2 days to buy a new car. I needed something really reliable so I looked at Camrys. I had the car a little over a year when someone pulled out in front of me and i totaled it. When I bought the car it had 85k and it had 93k when I lost it. This car was amazing. I had intended on keeping it until I ran it into the ground, which I figured would be around 250-300k. Car had 1 owner b/f me. I took meticulous care of it. It was an amazing car. W/ snow tires, it safely took me over Snoq. Pass (WA) in the snow several times, and around snowy Sea and Spo. This is one of best cars out there, better than brand new Am sedans.
excellent options: fog lights CD Gold Trim Spoiler moonroof moonroof bug/wind shield Toyota VIP etc. RELIABILITY!!! Great resale value got $8k ins $ for total in 06/09 Low maintenance Great power while easy on gas Great in snow/ice even on hills Easy oil change I'm 20yr F & could've done myself.
stronger cam seals. Besides reg maint, had to replace cam seals behind the engine to fix a MINOR oil leak at 91k,stepdad complained about the 2drops/mo it left on our asphalt & since it was due for it's 90k, had those replaced too, even though it wasn't really necessary
