2003 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is my first Toyota - and probably last. For the price premium I've not received the reliability I looked forward to having. Case in point: At 71,400 miles the a/c quit working, the first ever a/c problem I've had on any car I've owned before 100,000 miles! My service tech said I "had to take it to the dealer". (Thanks again, Toyota!) The dealer said the a/c compressor AND clutch needed replacing, for $1300+ for a rebuilt unit no less, not a new part. That, and $35 to lubricate a "squawking" steering column rubber piece. The ride and comfort is great, but I'm afraid of too many repairs in the future. I feel so stupid - buy a 100,000 mile warranty like with any other car!

Favorite Features

6-disc CD changer, comfortable and quiet ride, decent mpg (30 mpg over-the- road), color (Black Walnut Pearl).

Suggested Improvements

Please bring back your former reliability!
