I just purchased a 2010 Toyota Camry LE 4cyl vehicle. I am extremely disappointed in the transmission when traveling on secondary roads. The transmission is constantly shifting up and down making the ride feel very erratic and jerky when traveling between 25 MPH and 35 MPH. The transmission begins to settle down at speeds over 40MPH; but most secondary road driving is between 25 & 35MPH. I feel very uncomfortable driving this car. I took it back to the dealership within 1 week of purchasing it and they told me that it is the computer in car causing this behavior, and it should calm down when the computer becomes accustomed to my driving habits. I wish I bought a different car!
The exterior appearance.
The shifting of the 6 speed automatic transmission!
I have always purchased Chrysler. New. My father was a Chrysler retiree. I had a 2006 Dodge Caravan. I had replaced the brakes 4 times and the rotors 2 times...the water pump conveniently went out at 39 months and the alternator and transmission were acting up last week. I tried to get an American dealer to work me a deal with my van as a trade in and I could not get them to deal with me and get it in payments. I want a product that will outlive the loan...and so i finally purchased a foreign car but hey it was made in KY USA so it put food on an American family's table. Amen!
I like this Camry. I think in a year or two I may buy another one.
I think a bit taller inside would be a little nice..but I really can't find anything wrong with this car. I have drive over 12 different products and this is the nicest.
We bought this car for my wife at the end of the 2009, just prior to the giant recall fiasco. This is our 16th Toyota and while somethings have been decontented (non-sliding sun visors) the overall trend is certainly up. The car is nearly as comfortable as my 2005 Avalon. We just took it on an all highway round trip of 1000 mile and got a 34.1 MPG, actual, at speeds of 70-75 MPH. I am most pleased with the mileage. (The trip computer, however, is overly optimistic). Much of the trip was up and down mountain areas and did well going uphill without much effort. The car looks nice though not a styling stand out. Tires are the Bridgestones and nothing to write home about.
The satellite radio, Push button start. Terrific mileage on a car with 3400 miles on it. Comfortable ride. I like the sliding console top. This is not a sporty car at all but meets our needs very nicely. So far I a happy with the purchase. i hope it does as well as our other Toyotas.
Need to make the sun visors slide to cover more area like they used to do. Do something about the radio screen. It is IMPOSSIBLE to read when driving on a sunny day. Pop up trunk lid should be on this car. The USB port is poorly placed. The interior marks up easily.
10,000 miles with a new Camry...am still impressed with the excellent air conditioning, quiet ride, and fuel mileage (32 mpg average with mixed freeway and city driving). No problems or unscheduled maintenance, took it in for the recall which was performed quickly. Looking back this was a good choice for my 50 mile daily commute. It is a great highway cruiser, quiet, smooth driver with excellent fuel mileage for its size.
This car has an excellent heater and air conditioner. This winter it cleared the front windshield of frost within 2 minutes and the rear window was cleared within two miles of driving.
After 10,000 miles I would still recommend extended the seat cushions and improving the "loose", "flabby" suspension. The wallowing over some bumps is just too much of a throwback to the 1980's. I hope the new model has a higher quality interior with an updated sense of style.
Previously I own 2004 Toyta Camry LE 2.4L 4 cyl and I was averaging 28 mpg. New 2010 Toyota Camry LE 2.5L 4 cyl can`t get even 18 mpg and under 16 in city driving. I have open complaint case with Toyota on march 19, 2010 Dealer did not find any problem and I was advised to come back for recheck after first 5000 miles. So far I do not see any improvement as the engine is breaking. Checking other reviews I think maybe I have a LEMON
