Reliable, Fun, Great. Can't Go Wrong With Buying This Car. — For a lot of people, including myself, their car is like home away from home. I live in Houston, TX, and it's the kind of city where if you don't have in car, your life won't be very productive. That being said, your car needs to be reliable. The 2003 Toyota Camry is practically synonymous with reliability. This car is running like brand new, and although it's almost 7 years old now, it is still up with the times. You won't get in this car and have the feeling it's outdated. It's very roomy, JBL sound system is awesome, seats are comfy, V6 engine isn't mighty, but it's enough to get you going quick when you're on the go. Braking, handling, acceleration are all great. Build quality is superb. No squeaking or rattling, and it's awesome because squeaking and rattling are a pet peeve of mine. Appearance on the outside is good. It's not over the top, looks nice and professional. Interior styling is great too. Gas mileage is awesome. I get an easy 30+ on the highway, regardless of EPA estimates. City is about 24 mpg, which is good for a V6. This car is fun to drive. This is the kind of car you wouldn't mind loading up with friends on a weekend and taking it out for a cruise to downtown or the beach. It's got plenty of space for their antics, a moonroof to bring in the fresh air, and a good ambient feeling for a sedan.

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.

Pros

reliability, build quality, most people have basic 4 cylinder LEs,  a little bit of exclusivity

Cons

1st to 2nd transmission shift, lack of communication with accelerator

My Two Pet Peeves Of My 2003 Toyota Camry Se V6 — The only problems I have with my 2003 Toyota Camry is the transmission shifts from 1st to 2nd gear. If you step on the gas a good amount it wildly shifts down and the engine red lines so I take my foot off and then have to be much more conservative with my acceleration needs for that moment. Basically when this happens you get a little jerk back and forth from flooring it to letting way off to trying to floor it again, its aggravating, ... the 210hp 3.0 V6 other then those small quips is very very nice.

2003 Toyota Camry Sedan — For a stock 4 cylinder family sedan this car has some pickup. Its highly fuel efficient and smooth. With metallic paint and sports accessories it looks a little better than the stock version floating around and would even make a good project car. It looks better than the generation 6 Camrys and has a lot of potential when you slap it on big 19" rims. Performance: The 4 cyl model is surprisingly quick and smooth. Could do with some lower springs. Build Quality: The Camry is larger than you'd think and quite solid. Inside is very quiet and well insulated. Appearance: When sported up looks awesome. A bit plain stock though. Cost of Ownership: Great on fuel, maintenance is standard. Fun Factor: Being a front wheel drive you can't drift it without yanking the handbrake but its quite zippy for a larger sedan. Lowering it and throwing in stabilizer bars would make it superb on curved roads.

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.

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.....
