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


I bought my Camry LE 4cyl back in March of 2009 and at 23,000 miles I had to replace all four tires cause the treads were worn. I was like what? Ridiculous. I don't drive hard and I rotate every 5000 miles. Come to find out the factory tires are only good for 30,000 miles. A Firestone mechanic told me this when I went to replace my tires. Toyota is trying to cut costs as much as possible wherever possible to manufacture their vehicles in these economic times. Pedal recalls are one example. Who knows what other parts might go wrong in the future and another major recall hits. 2 of my friends own a Camry 07 and both of their cars are burning 1 qt of oil every 1000 miles! with 40000 miles on it

Best Features

None. Paint is peeling on the hood, Car always seem to be out of alignment, steering wheel is hard to turn sometimes when parking at low speeds.

Worst Features

I'm trading my car for either a Nissan or Ford. C-ya Toyota it was nice knowing you.

I am a master tech at a toyota dealership for over 30 years. I have watched there quality go down the drain year after year, I see how they treat people with legitamate problems like stupid fools, The 2azfe engine 2006 up burning oil problem is a joke, We recieved a service letter from toyota stating that burning oil at a rate of 1 quart every 1200 mile is normal, At a recommended service interval of 5000 miles and a 4 quart capacity, .Well you do the math , No oil engine go boom, Normal , We cant even keep up with the service bullitins because they come in every day, But hey. thats how i make my money, On Toyotas crap products, Ps maybe its just me but Toyota parts are so overpriced i cant believe people keep buying these junks, But then again are showrooms have been empty , Even at the february auto show in chicago there were not many people at the toyota booth but tons at hyandi and honda, We have to have the crappiest interior in the market, S o much for my rants New Toyotas = junk,bottom line
