    This Car's Life Was Cut Short — We had this car for about 6 months. Then a blown tire at 70 mph on the Beltway doomed this car.

    Pros: Everything was perfect for 6 months

    Cons: Cheap factory tires which ended its service life thereafter

    Worked, But 0 Personality. — Great engine the 1MZ-FE, quiet and smooth 3.0L of V6 goodness. But on the other hand, no character... nothing.. it was neither a performance car, luxury car, etc... not entirely dependable... just average...

    Pros: Works well, huge load area

    Cons: Feel like i'm on Novocain.

    Camry Is A Good Car — I have been driving an older model - spacious, low on fuel, reliable, strong engine (1800 only!). I'd certainly buy one again. D.

    Car Is Ok — Not impressed with Toyota with hiding faults with struts and engine problems. Front struts make constant noise when going over bump or dip. V-6 engine failure with oil sluge. I approached dealer on these problems and was told it was a warranty problem. I bought the car with 40,000 miles and as being the second owner. The previous owner was never aware of the problems. They were an older couple and took the car to the dealer for service. The dealer or the previous customer never addressed any of the TSB so none of the problems were fixed.

    Great Car! — This car is great. It has never had any problems. Maintaince is easy to do yourself with easy access to most parts in the engine bay. I also consitently get 23 to 25 miles to the gallon (much higher than the EPA states I should get) and if I get out and do highway I get upward of 34 depending on cargo load. I live in the mountains and drive mountain roads as well. The V6 has plenty of power and only requires down shifting if I wish to pass someone. The only modification I have done to this car is ad a K&N filter to it, which did seem to increase the cars ability to breath at higher altitudes and also bumped my few economy sighlty (less than a gallon, but still consitently higher than before).

    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).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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

    Good All Around Hauler Of People — The exterior and interior is that of late 90's cars with alot of plastic. The leather is good but hardens easily. The handling is good unless it is taken around a corner to fast. The performance out of the box is good and it has plenty of torque to get you from point A to B. Overall it is a good everyday car. A few suspension upgrades tighten up the whole car.

    Pros: 5 speed V6
    Has good acceleration.
    Roomy

    Cons: Can be a little hairy when cornering if taken to fast
