Pros

It's a Toyota and it's very well built and very reliable

Cons

Drinks too much gas, too much Styrofoam in the bumpers, Sits too low to the ground, window's too small, U feel claustrophobic while Ur in it...It's over priced too because of our governments BS tariffs and the greed of the dealers...

Designed For The Average American Idiot Who Thinks 25 Mpg Is Just Great... — It doesn't suck as much as American cars...It's not a metal car...it's a plastic car that sits too low to the ground, it's mpg is not good at all. It's headlights do suck but could be easily fixed. the best part of this car is the motor, transmission, handling, power, and reliability but other than that, there's much better buys out there. The Camry is PASSE'!!!

Worked Well For Rme — Love the average 33 mpg. Always had plenty of room. While it's just a family sedan, I felt it had decent power when needed. My labs hair always stuck to the back seat, and ended up having to use a towel every trip.

Excellent Family Car — I like the solid reputation of this car, it has a history of safety and reliability and continues to be the number one selling automobile in America. The ride is very comfortable and quiet. It is also very roomy for six footers.

A Nice Car To Own And Drive — Toyota delivered the goods when they made this model of Camry. Rides smooth, quick brakes, No worries, when you travel in this car. Fuel saver. Good value for the money spent to purchase this auto. I would recommend it my friends and family.

Pros

Sporty looking, nice color options, somewhat enjoyable handling

Cons

Instrumentation designed by committee, low acceleration, transmission searching when unexpected, had a front wheel bearing seize at 65K, gas mileage was no where near stated on purchase sticker - EPA 32 HWY, actual 26 mpg. Build quality was pretty marginal by any standard.

Sporty Looking, Not A Performer — It is more show than go - of course it is a 4 cylinder family sedan, an econo-box, and 2009 is/was the pinnacle of Toyota's not so secret slide away from good quality. It looks more like a "tuner" ride - I get a lot of teens and 20 somethings giving the car admiring looks, but I'm in my 50's and not looking for that kind of attention. It should make a really good kids car because it is roomy and somewhat comfortable with a full load of passengers. The 4 cylinder is decidedly under powered but acceleration is good after 50 up to 90 mph. The faux metal interior surfaces get dirty with the slightest touch and are difficult to clean - think stainless steel kitchen appliances, but worse. Stereo can barely get loud enough to exceed highway noise ( the car is noisy) and by then you are deafened by the decibels. The ride is stiff because it is a SE model which has the cross bar reinforcements in the frame behind the back seats, which is why it is the ONLY model of Toyota that the rear seats do not lay down for greater storage. Handling is still pretty nebuleous. At 43K I changed the factory installed "performance tires" and went with BF Goodrich AWR and they made it a greatly improved car in all aspects, mileage, noise, wet handling, snow handling etc. Best decision yet.

Great — See ratings Good power. Good reliability. Good fuel economy. Good price. Plenty of space, and I am a taller driver, so that is always important to feel comfortable without having to sacrifice fuel economy by having drive a larger vehicle. Overall just a great car.

Pros

Plenty of room, with equalizer it drives excellent in heavy ice, rain, and snow.  Instant miles per gallon is visible at any time.  MPG spring, summer and fall avg. 35.  Highway 40

Cons

The only thing I didn't like about this car was the attachment for phone music blue ray is with a cord.  All the other functions of your phone or device are wireless.

My Favorite Car Ever. — This is a great driving car. Brakes seemed to never wear down but finally replaced them for second time a few thousand miles ago. Smooth riding and quite. Maintenance costs have been very low. Some people express concern about the batteries. A Toyota Dealership in our town warrants the hybrid batteries for life on a new car. I inquired with other make dealerships, and they all say that they have had to replace maybe 3 battery sets. - ever! And they were replaced because of accidents or water damage from driving in a pond. And the acceleration will surprise. It's pretty quick. All in all - a very nice car.

Great Family Car — I looked for a few weeks when it came time to buy another car. I picked the Camry over the Accord because my friends Accord (2008) is burning engine oil at only 80k miles. I read a lot about the problem and was pretty disappointed because they drive sporty. Well, I'm happy with the Toyota and it was a good price at Leith Toyota in Raleigh. I have it serviced a a Toyota specialist and hope to get many years of service.

A Review Of My 2009 Toyota Camry — I liked the color, the gas mileage and the way it handled. The only thing that I disliked about my car is the fact that is a 4 cylinder and it don't have the power. Its roomy but yet sporty for 4 door car.
