This is my first foreign vehicle. I have been very pleased for the most part with this car. I get 29 mpg with a modern looking interior. The car doesn't even have 28,000 miles and they needed to be replaced. I don't squeal the tires, slam on the brakes, or even speed. The tires have even been rotated every 5,000 miles. Another problem I have with the car is the windows. When it is hot, the windows stick and leave a black residue you can never get off. A couple of times I thought the window would detach or motor would break. I guess that will probably be the next recall.
Tires need a longer life span. Window seals are sticking to the windows and may result in a window motor failure.
We bought this car to replace my other Camry that is 10 years old. I will say it is such a fun car to drive! I love all the safety features it offers. I drive up and down the interstate daily and feel confident that I am in a safe car! I got all that I wanted with no compromise. We still kept the old Camry to drive around town to save miles on the new Camry and my husband's '04 Toyota Tundra. I will only ever own a Toyota! Excellent made cars and trucks.
Keyless entry, plenty of head and leg room, all the air bags, the color of the exterior, smooth and quiet ride.
I am hoping the 09 has all the transmission bugs of the previous two years worked out! I would have to say that this car is a excellent vehicle for family it has five star crash testings all the way around except rollover which is a 4! My first Toyota almost 1000 miles and glitch free!! Great ride.
Handling extremely smooth and tight! First car that was so quiet inside when driving down the road - wow - have to test drive to understand!
Interior build quality could be better but thats stretching to find a fault!!
The Camry SE is probably overpriced in the Camry style, however, it does provide almost all features advertised. I find the comfort and interior design to be very good. Fuel savings are important and this 4cyl does the job.
Power, it is too much car for a 4cyl and pickup needs improvement. Also, exhaust system sounds like a toy car winding up.
Purchased the car 2 weeks ago and put 865 miles on it already. Wife drives 70 miles a day round-trip. She loves the ride, comfort and filling up the tank for $60 versus $90 for our 2004 mini van that we traded in. Problem going down hills, the RPM shoot up to 3000 while braking. I took back to dealership & asked them to reprogram the computer. They refused because the problem wouldn't duplicate itself while tech drove it. I talked to the head mechanic the next day and he told me it definitely needs reprogramming. Now I have another appt. to get the problem fixed.
