35 Miles Per Gallon Is All I Am Saying. — Performance - No acceleration. great breaking, and decent handling. Build Quality - no major mechanical problems. no engine power. Appearance - decent. great upgrade from previous model. Cost of Ownership - great gas mileage. 35 miles per gallon(on the highway). Fun Factor - the only way you can have fun in this car is to install a bad ass stereo. It has no sportiness to it.

99 Camrys — It's a very solidly built car, consistently worked and required less maintenance. There are still like a million 99 camrys rolling on the streets which means something! It has been a great over-all value to own this car. My family has had no complaints until I messed up the paint job.

Pros

Lots of power, proven design!  Comfortable, no blind spots.

Cons

Many repairs are very hard to get to, and require pulling apart more than should be necessary... This is common of many new cars, so its not just a problem of this car.  My particular car has super low miles (40k now) but I have had a few electrical issues, including the brake lights circuit and now an intermittent digital odometer/speedometer, which I am reading the latter seems to be common in this aged Toyotas unfortunately, but itmay be an easy fix (temporarily) or slightly more technical but easy fix to repair the speedometer circuit in the gauge.

Great Vehicle Overall, Very Few Issues For Age — Gets roughly 18mpg, for a v6 that's pretty decent... Handles road like a champ, power for days (I have a heavy foot and find myself easily hitting 90-100mph on the freeway, and on open road I had it as high as 125mph at roughly 4100 rpm'. IT feels comfortable and smooth easy drive until about 110-115, when you realize how fast your going and can start to feel small changes in wind patterns at those speeds. My car is bone stock, with approx. 40k miles on it (I know that's rare for a car this age). The head lamps are getting hazy and need to be replaced at this age. I saw some online deals for only $30 per side and will probably jump on it soon.

I loved driving this car, it always ran well for me before it developed the oil leak

Very Dependable — Very comfortable to drive, braking system always worked well, added new front brakes a few months ago as well as a new power steering pump and a new thermostat and an EGR valve. Smooth driving and dependable for long drives.

Cons

color is bad (tan)

Toyota Camry V6 — Good on gas, the 3.0 v6 provides the car with a ton of power. Has very good acceleration. Car is low to the ground and scrapes over some speed bumps but has very good handling. Even with the v6 it gets pretty good gas milage.

Excellent Reliable Car — The Camry is a very reliable car with excellent fuel economy. The cargo trunk is spacious, the car handles nice and smooth. Wish the car had come with more standard features like the Honda Accord. Would highly recommend this car to anyone.

Pros

Avaliable power with a relaxed, no nonsense-approach.  Provides the type of ease/assurance a woman finds in a wonder bra.

Cons

Not enough seat bolstering for driver, body roll (which more seat bolstering would help), keyless entry was only standard on loaded XLE's and optional for everyone else (which none were optioned with), Auto headlights cant be turned off unless you pull out the fuse

By Far One Of My Favorite Loyal, Go-to Vehicles, I Respect Them Highly — *PERFORMANCE- Lots of low end torque, enough to get up a big hill in 4th gear with ease. The 1MZ-FE has a great tonal sound-track which starts around 2500 rpms, braking is adequate, and handling is average but a good amount of body roll is present when pushed. Steering effort is light. *BUILD QUALITY- The build quality is one of the best aspects of the car. It has ZERO squeaks/rattles. The solidity of the cabin is outstanding. Panels never move/squeak/or rub against each other when you hit a big hole in the road, or push in and bounce back if you bump your elbow into them like the cheap plastic in some new cars. There is a surprising amount of soft touch materials throughout the cabin. Thick soft padded vinyl stretches over the entire dashboard and top half of the door panels as well as the shifter and center console arm rest. The lower parts of the cabin (the kick board, map holder cubbies, passenger side glove box and knee bolsters) are hard plastic. *APPEARANCE- The exterior is definitely reserved, but I think a reserved approach is better fitting a 'soft' family sedan - It isn't trying to be something it isn't (sexy). I don't particularly care for the dramatic cut of of the rear end although I know its what helps it obtain such a low aerodynamic value. The interior design is nice, I like the way the 'pod' (holds radio and climate controls) transitions into the center floor console, the slight 'ledge' in front of and below the two center air vents is also a nice transition. The door panels contour well into the flow of the dashboard. However the gauges are pretty boring (they should have used something similar to the electroluminescent optitron gauges in the ES300) *SUSPENSION- The overall feel of the ride is subdued and does a good job at it, however the smallest ruts and pavement textures find there way into the steering wheel and seats while all the medium and larger differentiations are well isolated and simply shrugged off with ease. Yes it does have a floating quality, but nowhere near that of a 90's Cadillac or Towncar. This car is also alot lower than it appears- take that with a soft suspension and speed bumps can become dangerous if you don't slow down. *COST OF OWNERSHIP- It obtains a respectable 23 Miles Per Gallon in mixed driving. 5,000 mile maintenance intervals is a nice addition. It is a very low maintenance vehicle by nature but things that cannot be avoided (in any car with high mileage) will be replacing the Head Gaskets especially the rear bank in V6 models. The way the engine is mounted on the Camry tilts the rear bank generally resulting in it to leak first. *FUN FACTOR- Most people won't be trying to race their Camry around figure 8's. But when some civic or brand new four cylinder fusion comes up beside you at a light and you know they're wanting to race, you can blast them off the line and then they'll see the V6 symbol of my Camry hurling away from them (for best results-polish chrome Make, Model, and V6 decals).

Will easily last over 250k miles, very low cost per mile to drive.

Best Car Ever Made For An Average Person — Best car I have owned yet. Has over 268k miles, and still runs like it did 10 yeas ago. Only major problems include electronic control unit, starter ~175k miles; and strut bushings ~250k miles. Very quiet and soft ride on the highway. Exceptional, smooth shifting at any rpm. Easy to replace any plastic parts which may deteriorate from UV over time. Simple design of exterior is nothing to write home about, but shows off a smooth sportiness; impressive for a sedan. Very easy to modify the sound system, stock premium speakers are austounding with the proper subwoofer kit. The v6 engine will last the average commuter, and will not leak oil with proper scheduled maintainance. The car is just too quiet to call [fun], yet the better word is [simple]. I anicipate at least another good 200k miles without any major problems.
