2009 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Avoid the 4 cylinder VVT-i Camrys. My Camry gave me a lot of trouble with nothing but its engine. The car was OK but whats the point of having a car free of trouble except for the engine. I had to replace its engine with a used one which cost me a lot and turned out to have a problem too. I regret buying a 4 cylinder Camry because the money I saved on gas I paid to the mechanic fixing and replacing the faulty engines. This engine is designed to run in perfect conditions only. If it overheats even for once then you expect to have the bolts that hold the valves head to move out of the engine block which is made of aluminum. The company counts on you to add one more concern to your life on top of all what you already have and take time to make sure that their engine is kept in a perfect condition. Over all the care had no other issues other than it is not comfortable and not fun to drive. The seats are too firm and flat you feel like you will fly out of the seat while taking turns. The doors are wide and give you space to get in the car but again the top is low you will hit your head against it multiple times while getting in to the car. The dashboard melted under the sun and some kind of substance "Glue Like" started to come out of the surface of the dash. I tried to clean it and used all of possible solvents and cleaners but it did not help. I believe that its dash is made out of some recycled cheap stuff. The interior is too plain and humble "which it common to most of Toyotas" and does not give you any feeling of luxury. All and all if you have to buy a 2009 Toyota Camry buy the 6 Cylinder Engine one and pay extra for gas but avoid what I have been through with the 4 cylinder VVT-i engine that sounds like a sewing machine.

2009 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought this vehicle used in 2017 with 51,000 miles on it. I have 1999 also, so when I purchased this one it was like I was transported back to 1999. I have had such great history with Toyota ,so ...it was one of those "I gotta have it, when this one was listed. Leather interior , great radio, air conditioning that blows chunks of ice ( it is very cold). Steers wonderfully and I have never experienced the engine oil consumption on either Camry that some have brought up concerns about. I am very pleased with the Camry and the reliability is second to none... I would not hesitate to buy another one and definitely recommend Camry to everyone

2009 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought this car based upon Toyota’s excellent track record for reliability. I maintain my cars with precision and yet I’m always dealing with mechanical problems. Repair list: Transmission bad @127k, CV axles multiple repairs, and constant strut problems

Review

The Camry is pretty good for a used car. Price wasn't too bad. Car is in pretty good shape and low mileage.
