I purchased my 2011 Camry a little over a year ago and I currently have 37k miles on it. This car has been amazing. Great gas mileage, quiet interior-no road noise, rides smooth, very roomy on the inside. I love this car!!! This is my second Toyota (had a Rav 4 previously). 4/12/16: Update! 5 years later this car is still GREAT! Best car I have ever had! Not a single problem! Only had to do the required maintenance. If anyone is looking for a used car I would highly recommend the 2011 Camry because it is incredibly reliable and gets very good gas mileage! 10/12/16: Update! Still love my Camry! Just replaced my tires! Currently have 105k miles on it! Still rides like a new car! 4/17/17: Still love my Camry! Still rides like the day I bought it! I love my car! 10/17/17: Update: My car currently has 120k miles on it. Still running strong!
Good car for long trips, definitely not a race horse!

I bought 2011 Camry LE (4 cyl.) with alloy wheels, sunroof, bluetooth, carpeted floor mats for about $24000 with 0% financing in late Oct. 2010. I have about 6000 miles on it and feel confident enough to write a review now. Overall: Comfortable car with good gas mileage, but definitely not for someone who wants a sporty ride or good accleration (ZERO sportiness and accleration). The car struggled while going uphill, however driving on flat roads was very comfortable. Almost noiseless cabin. Easy to use features that seem to have not been upgraded since 2005. Have a buyer's remorse of overpaying the price.
Our 2011 Toyota Camry XLE V6 is the best car we have ever owned! It is quiet, it is comfortable, and it is a pleasure to drive. We can take a trip in comfort and get over 30 mpg. Our car has every feature one could want - the leather is lovely - the JBL radio is great and the build quality is very nice. This is just a wonderful car, a very good value, and one that will hold its value. A great decision for our family.
I just traded my 2011 Camry for a 2014 Camry, didn't care for the appearance of the 2015.I drove the 2011 for 60,000 miles with no repairs, just maintance an a new set of tires.I was very satisfied with this car. Have had the 2014 for a little over 3 years, have had no problems, a little better gas mileage, not quite as good a ride, but a very good car.
Just picked the car up on 12/28/2011. I have owned Toyota's for years. I had a 2003 Corolla for 8 years and a 1993 Toyota pickup truck both very reliable. This car is incredible and fun to drive. It feels like a sports car that is a sedan if that makes any sense. Been driving stick for over 40 years, ride a Harley in the summer. This car is my winter Harley. Just plane fun to drive, yet quiet and comfortble when I needed it to be. Can't say that for a Harley. For my first tank of gas combination city and highway, I got 26.7 MPH. I think that is pretty good. I got down to a half tank after 260 miles. So this says I can probably get 500 plus miles to a tank of gas. Thats impresive.

This is no wheezy four-banger, that's for sure -- it's got some power. Allows wheelspin even with traction control on -- rare for a Toyota. Best launch came with automatic tranny in Sport, stability control and traction control off and power-braking to 2,600 rpm. Manual shifting via console lever does not hold gears (pull back for downshifts); does not blip throttle on downshifts; shifts automatically at 6,100 rpm.
Reasonably firm pedal feel and good fade resistance. Lots of front-end dive and, correspondingly, very light rear end, with some side-to-side movement. More-than-usual ABS pumping felt through pedal.
Skid pad: Plenty of understeer. But with stability control off, the chassis was willing to cooperate with drop-throttle. Overlying factors here: soft suspension and slippery tires. The stability system wasn't overly intrusive even when switched on. Slalom: Another rarity for a Toyota product -- Stability control stayed out of the equation when turned off in the slalom. Surprisingly tossable and controllable, considering this is a ho-hum midsize four-cylinder family sedan. The steering doesn't have much in the way of feel, but turns in reasonably quick. Suspension is soft, giving a lot of body roll, and tires don't have much grip. But for what it is, it worked well. When turned on, stability control can be very intrusive if you aren't dead-smooth with your inputs.
