2010 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I've own my 2010 Camry LE I4 for 2.5 yrs and have 51K mile on her.
This car is perfect for what it is, a comfortable daily commuter that's easy to maintain.
I've taken lots of road trips in the Camry and it's perfect for the open roads. I've got as much as 36 mpg if I keep it at 70 mph but avg around 32 going 80. Neg. reviews about the trans keeps popping up but I've never had a problem with mine since I drive the car gently to keep the wear and tear down.
Reliability so far has been perfect.
I haven't gone to the dealer once for warranty repair.
If you buy a Camry for what it is, a commuter car, you're going to be happy; just don't expect BMW handling.


Best Features

Reliability, smooth ride, easy to work on, and refinement. One of the things that's great about the Camry is how low maintenance they are and how easy they are to work on. Oil changes are done every 10K miles if you're using synthetic. Antifreeze is good for 100K miles and changing it is as easy as turning a knob.


Worst Features

Toyota has the formula down for a great family sedan but the competition is heating up. I think they're going to have to give the Camry a less bland design plus improve the material they're using for the interior.

2010 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I bought this with 14000 mi and have put on nearly 6k of mixed driving.
Having owned everything from economy cars to muscle cars I was not sure how I would feel about what many look at as an old mans car.


Being a modestly priced car I was pleasantly surprised at the fit and finish. The interior although well designed,
uses what seems to be low quality materials.
Silver painted plastic is the choice over brushed aluminum.
I quickly corrected this with a wood grain overlay kit.


Safety is a big plus with the Camry and shows with it's safety rating. Front and side air bags, knee bag along and standard traction control and abs add to the security.

This car exceeds my expectations.


Best Features

The ride is impressive. It rides as smoothly as many cars twice the price. Engine and trans are silky smooth. Power is fine for daily highway or city driving. The trans keeps the engine in the right torque range and the smooth shifts of the 6 speed automatic are not annoying. Very good gas mileage. 25 city and a little over 33 on the freeway. Controls and dash are easy to use and read. Seat backs and headrests are among the best I have ever seen. The seat bottoms are a little small but the power seat allows most to find a comfortable position. The trunk is fairly large with a low lift over height. Rear room is better than average. Head and leg room are OK for adults.


Worst Features

Not too many negative features but I would like to see the seat bottoms a little larger. Also add and extension to the sun visor to cover the side window when you are diving with the sun low in the sky. A higher grade of plastic and fabric on the interior. Only time will tell how well it will hold up. Overall this is a well made car that is comfortable, safe, economical, with better road manners than most give it credit for. They are made in Kentucky and have more American made parts than any car. So in this era of world wide trade, this car does add to the US economy.

2010 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

After purchasing the car with 39000 miles two weeks later my wire harness in the transmission went out. Took it to the dealer and they didnt cover it under the power train warranty even though they had to pull my whole tranny. That was a 900 dollar repair. After getting it back my transmission feels sluggish, it accerates and deccerates at the wrong times, Overall the Tranny sucks on this vehicle everything else is nice about the car. But i hate that its such a beautiful car except for the tranny and I wonder how much longer its going to last me :(
Sad to say for a 2010 toyota camry.

2010 Toyota Camry 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

No complaints after 2+ years (20k miles), no trips back to the dealer for ANYTHING.
Only the accelerator recall, which will never cause a problem unless you put one mat on top of another and/or you don't use the clips to secure the mat.
If you read the owner's manual and use common sense, you have nothing to worry about.
But the recall changes the accelerator pedal so it is "idiot" proof.
There is ZERO evidence of
unintended acceleration or problems with the electronics, according to NASA.


Good job to all the folks in Kentucky that built this car, and I am happy to see that 85% of the parts are also from North America!
As a bonus, I also own Toyota stock, so I share in the profits


Best Features

6 speed manual transmission! Reliable, comfortable ride, large interior and trunk. Very little maintenance required (10,000 mile or 1 year oil changes). Very easy to do your own maintenance oil & filter changes, air filter changes, that's about it for the first 100,000 miles. Great miles per gallon, I can get 31 mpg on the highway at 72 mph with the AC on. I could get the EPA rating of 33 mpg if I was going a little slower, which is how the EPA tests all cars. Very quiet interior. Good acceleration for an inexpensive mid-size sedan.


Worst Features

The forward cupholder is too close to the shift lever (manual transmission). Make the stick shift about 2 inches shorter. Needs more cupholders and needs a coin slot. Interior could be nicer with less plastic. I see the 2012 Camry has a much nicer interior. Some complain that the 6th gear only drops the rpms about 300. That is true, but unfortunately, all the other sedans with a manual transmission do the same thing - only a very small RPM drop with 6th gear vs. 5th.

2010 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

We bought our 2010 Camry at the height of all the Toyota recall hype because we were confident it was nonsense - and it was.
We could not be happier with our purchase.
We got a great deal, the dealer was a delight, and the car is great.
We take a LOT of long car trips and this car is comfortable, gets decent gas mileage (30 mpg), holds a lot of luggage and, most importantly, is reliable!
Our previous car was a Volkswagon Passat wagon, and it was in the shop all the time, so reliability was key.
I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.


Best Features

Leather seats, faux wood-grain trim, quiet ride, reliability.
