This is my second Camry. The first one Camry 1996 was much better. Seems Toyota lost quality. Disappointed with my purchase. I chose Camry because of reliability, but things like bad shifting in low gears, poor acceleration, hesitation when starting from full stop makes me unhappy.....Get 25 MPG average
Large trunk, large interior space, good passenger room....
Updating my first review. Paid the dealer to flush and clean out the fuel injectors which immediately improved gas mileage and sluggish tranny. Was advised to run 91 octane to keep clean. At same visit told that rocker arms were cracked and coming out of sleeves. $900.00 repair job and car had 34,000 miles. Filed complaint with Toyota and I had to pay 1/3 of cost. Dealer tried very hard to make it right, so kudos to them, Still disappointed with my purchase. I am looking to trade this car in. I'm going back to Nissan or Honda.
Car is still so very pretty.
Stereo reception still stinks and can't believe that major parts needed to be replaced.
Just turned 110K now. I've changed oil every 5K, air filter every 15k, and changed transmission fluid at 105K and the old fluid still looked fine. I've gone thru 2 sets of tires. I see no reason why this girl won't be around for at least 300K.
The car itself is very good. However the paint is peeling and the dealer and zone rep refuse to acknowledge the problem. They first tried to say that it was re-painted (I bought it new and would probably remember if I had had a new paint job). Once we got past that issue they decided that I was 3 months out of warranty and 18,000 miles over as well. Apparently Toyota only expects their paint to last 36000 miles or three years. It is a great car, but at $500.00 a pop to have the paint fixed I seriously doubt if I will ever own another Toyota product. Too bad their management personnel and dealers don't have the same level of integrity as their cars.
Great car to drive.
Keep the quality of the car, but improve the honesty and integrity of the people associated with Toyota.
