Camry Is So-so — Since its a used car, the brakes were pretty bad. Wheel alignment is horrible. Acceleration isn't very good either. Cost of ownership is alright. It's kinda fun to drive. Yeah it needed lots of repairs. Handling is Okay. It rattles occasionally.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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 You won't get in this car and have the feeling it's outdated.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.

Fuel mileage comes first in my mind

Cons

Great Car For A Good Price — Roomy, comfortable, plenty of safety and luxury features, high resale value, reputation for reliability. Premium optional features are pricey, V6 isn't as powerful as others in the class Trunk is huge, great fuel mileage, reliability, good interior space. i love it.

Probably The Most Practical Decision — The Camry may not be the most fun vehicle around. It's not the4 most luxurious or anything like that. But fundamentally, it's a good solid vehicle that seats 5 adults. And if you know my family, that's a statement. And it gets fairly good mileage. Assuming that I don't win the lottery, I expect that I will keep this car for another 5 - 10 years and in all likelihood, I will buy another one as they are extremely practical.

03 Camry — The Toyota Camry is a fine car with a good Blue Book value. Compared to the Chevy Malibu, the Camry accelerates faster and reciprocates the feeling. From 35,000 - 50,000 miles, the Camry retains a Kelly Blue Book value of $8,000 in fair condition. If your in the market for a reasonably priced car and this is your first car, the Camry is a great first car to own.

Middle Of The Road, The Newer One Should Be Much More Likeable. — Performance of this car is ok, the transmission does not make the most of the power and you feel disconnected from the road. The brake pedal has about 4 inches of travel before the brakes actually bite, and the steering is wobbly. The car i drove was in an accident and after being repaired very well, the car was never the same whenever i would get into it. The steering wheel squeaks, there is a high speed shake in the steering, and it seems that these cars are built very well but once in an accident, start to deteriorate quite quickly. Also it has the most boring and gray interior of any car, yes the materials atre fit together well but there is a very cheap feel to the car. Lastly, it is very difficult to udge where the backend is because the trunk lid is so high, so its not good for going in reverse.

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.
