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


Review

I am 5 feet tall. I have to pull my seat out so close, that I can't even pull down the visor when the sun is out or it'll hit my head. (Also pulling the eat in and out sucks because the button makes it move so slow.) The Camry is meant for tall, big or buff guys. Not for a 5 foot lady! It's a good car. Some cons are that it doesn't even have a compass. I can't fast forward my music either. It is a reliable car and it's good on gas. I never fill up more than half because the as wastes less this way. I get about 20-23 mpg.


Best Features

The outside! I have it in super white.


Worst Features

Don't want visor to hit my head.

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


Review

I bought this car in July 2008 brand new from the dealership. I do maintenance regularly at the dealership where I bought it. The first year I had it, it lost a lot of oil but the dealership said it was normal, til now I lose a lot of oil. Now, I have 54K miles on it. Then one day, without any warning, the battery died. I bought a new battery from toyota and still the car wasn't working well. I returned to the dealership and they told me I need a new alternator, I had to pay all of this out of pocket because the warranty ended.

I bought this car thinking that it would not give me any problems, I worked 10 hours a day to pay off this car in 3 years and now I this purchase was a HUGE mistake


Best Features

color, design, low maintenance (or so i thought)

2009 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is the third Camry I have owned, a 93 LE, 141,000; 02 XLE ,149,000 and now a 09 XLE.
This is by far the smoothest riding and comfortable edition of these word class sedans. I see no drop off of the fit and finish, I get great gas mileage (4 cyc) and the engine is so quiet.
A Lexsus without the additional $10,0000 cost and reg gas, to boot!


Best Features

Wood grain, moon roof, leather

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


Review

Trust me, I come from a family of General Motors lovers.
They now believe me, after this car, and recommend Toyota to everyone.
My Dad now loves the Sienna.
GM still makes crap.
Chevy sonic.. anyone?
Toyota has had side airbags standard and better resale. Cobalts, sonic, colorado, s10, buick, the new impala and their new models r horrible. my gram has 15k on her cobalt and kbb says 9k. i have 40k on my 09 and kbb says 14500 HELLO!!
Seriously people.. it's my pride and joy.
Full tank of gas city driving only will last you 2 full weeks, trust me, this car can move!!

it is SO SMOOTH
this is what GM buyers don't understand, TOYOTA DRIVES TOTALLY DIFFERENT!!!
and thank god for that :)


Best Features

It will turn you into a lover of Toyota :) I can't get enough of their Highlanders too. Trust me, it is so smooth. So fun to drive. You feel like you're in a cockpit with the gears. Nice standard features. Power sunroof one touch, Has senses so if a locksmith tries to open the door, it senses someone is trying to brake in and won't unlock (lol), I have driven from MI to DE and PA and NJ four of five trips now, No problems. Battery is fine, tires are still fine. Just passed 50,000 miles. Also, the seats are plush - like chennile fabric. Not crappy Chevy seating like the Cobalt. There's a reason Toyota and the Camry are # 1 - go drive it and see. no other models compare w/ acceleration


Worst Features

Hmmm.. I hate the Rav 4 drive.. Tundra V8 is like wowwwww... Tacomas are awesome.. Camrys are awesome.. Highlanders are amazing. They are both built on the same platform. The new ones are even better. Want to see how many miles I can get off this Camry and then will upgrade. My friend has an 02 Lexus with a tight steering wheel, unlike 06 and 08 cadillacs that have the same steering my s10 had.. where it is so misaligned.. his lexus has 187,000 miles and drives like a brand new car i'm the biggest car critic out there!!! I LUV MY CAM CAM!!! WOOOO
