Reliable Midsize Sedan — It is a very trouble free car. It does what you need it to... It is not much on performance, but it was never built to be a performance car. Look at it, the average age of people driving these is 50....

Wise Investment — I like the dependability of this vehicle. I also like the fuel efficiency. I have noticed that the onboard computer doesn't calculate the miles per gallon correctly compared to my manual calculation. But, it still gets a decent 32 hwy as opposed to 37 reported.

Awesome Car — I loved my Toyota Camry. It was a very dependable car. It got great gas mileage. There was plenty of room in the trunk. I didn't have very many problems with it. So glad I bought the Camry, I would definitely buy another one in the future.

Great Car — Would recommend to anyone looking for a dependable, low maintenance car. Bought new in 2003 and have experienced only one trip to the dealer for a small issue repair. Great for highway or city and will keep the car until we begin experiencing issues.

Pros

Extremely reliable - 10 years and only basic maintenance - oil change, brakes, tires, battery. Rides, handles looks good enough. No rattles, squeaks, no rust. Drive 60 mph gets at least 45+ mpg (really!). For a 4 cylinder has enough oomph to get on the highway from an entrance ramp

Cons

Dealer service was rip off city. If you can do your own serivce do it. Other than the car being a bit noisy, and the sound system not really premium, it is a gem

Great Deal - Hey, Its A Toyota! — Owned it exactly 10 years new years day - bought it new. Everything I expected from a Toyota. Good value, reliable, trustworthy. Has never failed me in extreme heat, frigid cold, snow storms, you name it, it got me thru it. Family bought a 1969 Toyota Corona, my first was a 1973 Corolla 5 speed. Owned many other brands, but Toyota has always delivered on good value for the dollar.....

Pros

* Reliable
* Good gas mileage combined with powerful engine
* Very comfortable
* Excellent performance, very easy to control.
* I felt safe going long distance, always knew I can trust it.

Cons

* Looks could be more modern.  Toyota always go with a very conventional looks.  But its not a big trade-off for the comfort and reliability.

The Most Reliable And Reasonable Sedan For The Middle-class Family. — The car is extremely reliable. It went 164K without any breakdowns. Other than changing oil, batteries, breaks, tires I never had to do any repair work. At about 140K I changed the belts (including timing belt) and pomp just because I knew it should be done. Absolute pleasure to drive. Soft, very quiet engine. At 9 years old and with high mileage Toyota Camry is still in the great condition and can go for many more years+miles. I used the car for everything, commuting to work, going on vacations, long-drive trips. I didn't have to worry about a thing going wrong with it. It was always perfect. I did buy an extended warranty for 100K. This was not a smart thing to do because there was never a need to use it even now, when the car has almost double the miles of the warranty.

Excellent And Dependable Sedan. — I love the look and handling of this car. It is well maintained and in excellent condition. Only negatives is that it can't haul around the soccer crew! I've never had a real issue with this car and I would keep it forever, but you can't really go hunting with it!
