2001 Toyota Camry Sedan XLE 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This Camry is a second V6 XLE I own. Both have been manufactured in Japan. I have never had any repair other than minor scratches and regular maintenance. I use the dealership for service as I found that Toyota service is about the same as others.Because I no longer commute to work, I have a low mileage but it is so comfortable to drive on long trips. It has a great pick up at every traffic light and I have to watch my speed at all times. It is a different kind of "fun to drive" from RX7 I used to drive, but I feel quite secure in this car. Cargo space is sufficient. I will keep it for a while as at present I have only 55000 miles on it.


Best Features

Moon roof, leather trim, and spacious trunk.


Worst Features

The brake always felt softer than I like. However, it has never failed to work adequately.

2001 Toyota Camry Sedan XLE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After my wife had owned, and still owns, a Toyota, I bought a Certified Used Toyota (2001 XLE Camry V6) with 61,000 miles. Week after I had it the battery died. Since May 2007, I am going through my third caliper repair (2 on the left, one on the right)which has cost me over $1,000 to fix. Just had to replace timing belt. Seems I am constantly shelling out money to fix things. Seriously thinking about dumping this one. I might trade in on another Toyota, but my experience has not been great. I believe my caliper issue is a design flaw and that I shouldn't have to keep paying to fix

2001 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My seventh Toyota and it is a pleasure. I still have my '87 Camry wagon and it is in great shape as well. Reliable, reliable, reliable and hold their value well. Once I had a fancy expensive sports car, I don't need to look pretty while I wait for the tow truck in the hot Arizona sun. Six Toyotas and not a single complaint on any of them and I have never been left on the side of the road by any of them.


Best Features

Regular maintenance equals long life and reliable service. Is being well built a feature?


Worst Features

The body style of the Camry is a little dull/ordinary. I could have a bit more style.

2001 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased a used 2001 Camry in may of 2003 with 23000 miles on it. I drive it daily back and forth to work 38 miles each way. I also drive it anywhere I want to go with it. I average around 30 mpg virtually all the time. As of now I have about 92000 miles on it with absolutely no problems. I have not replaced the timing belt nor have I had to replace the brake pads. This is an extremely reliable car. Also have a 94 4cyl Camry with 196000 miles on it with only a few problems. Couple of front axles and brakes plus on oil pump. Long story on the oil pump but it still runs and drives great.


Best Features

Love the gas mileage especially @ $3 per gallon. Good comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Exterior a little plain but ok.

2001 Toyota Camry Sedan LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My husband bought this car for me in 2001. It had been leased for 6 months and only had 1400 miles on it! I LOVE this car! It drives smoothly, is comfortable (never had seat problems), and it is safe! I am looking to trade it in for a Matrix, most likely, but I still love this car, just wish it had more cargo space.


Best Features

Sunroof, V6 engine, smooth ride.


Worst Features

NO keyless entry! I had to put it on after market and it doesn't open the trunk :(
