Good Every Day Car — it is a spacy, smooth driving and very reliable car. nothing ever breaks. ideal for every day use. on ice i prefer an all wheel drive. you must do the regular mainenance such as oil, tire rotation filters, waxing. enjoy!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: spacy, smooth, reliable

Cons: on ice i prefer an all wheel drive

A Very Iffy Car — It never suited me, it'd do better as a 16 year old girls car... The v6 came out strong and the engine is mostly quite, the driver and passenger seats were not very comfortable for a 6'1 guy 6.5 out of 10

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Somewhat quick for the most part it could really get up and go

Cons: Had to do a lot of work to get a aux on original car radio.

Really Great First Major Car Expense — I absolutely enjoyed driving this car. It was the first car i bought at a dealer and 6 years and 200000 miles later this car is still a smooth operator. I loved this car and if i had a need for a second car i would keep this car well into its 25th year or so of age.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A lot of space for a taller person. The appearance for its age still seems as sleek and smooth as some of the newer model cars. The overall design was excellent

Cons: Im a tall person so finding a car with great spacing for leg and head room is kind of difficult to get with cars. This car was not the worst in terms of those conditions but it wasn't the best.

Reliable — I like the fact that it is always ready to go. The engine is very strong. The height is just average so it can allow you pass through most bad roads. The acceleration is just ok just for the braking with is clumsy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The car is very reliable and sporty

Cons: My model does not have ABS

Great Family Car — With three kids this has been a great family car that has now turned into my work vehicle to replace my 97 Camry V6 as I drive about 3,000 miles per month. We have done nothing to this car but add gas and change the oil.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Power, space available, handling

Cons: None at this time

The Best Car I Have Ever Had And I Do Not Want To Get Rid It! — There is nothing that I dislike about this car! It is my fourth Toyota and I am sure it will not be my last. It has, and continues to be, an exceptional car. It doesn't hurt that it is paid for either. During the period that I have owned my Camry, I have owned a Chevrolet and a Dodge. Unfortunately both cars cost me more to maintain and fix than they were worth even though they were newer than my Camry. Let's face it, I am biased!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: My Camry is a great car, very reliable, and an attractive car.  It is the Camry SE, the first year of SEs and the SE package definitely added character and a more appealing look to the Camry.  I have 256K miles and I just recently replaced the original clutch.  I love that it is a manual transmission, especially hard to find in Toyota Camrys at the time.  The car is a great size with a large trunk, I have the 4 cyl by choice..  It has a Bose system. What I love most about it is that is has always made me feel safe, roomy for the size making it more comfortable, and it has pretty decent gas mileage and did definitely have low repair costs.  The last Pro, mine was made in Japan.

Cons: The only cons I can identify are that I was in an accident and the paint used during the repair is coming off, it is getting older and the need for repairs are inevitable. Lately it has been burning oil but at this point as long as I keep oil in it, it runs fine.

My First Car — This is my first car that I got for my sweet 16 & I'm now 22 and this car still works like a charm. This car has truly been my partner in crime [figuratively speaking, of course ;)] I go thousands of miles without oil changes and it still runs smoothly. Although its not the sexiest categorized sports car, my Solara SLE packs some pep! Being an over zealous new driver my friend who drives a 2008(?) VW Jetta put her car into Sport Mode and we raced to see which car was faster, and my car was faster. This car has lasted through a high school graduation and a college graduation with no major breakdowns. In between those two graduations its lasted through running over curbs, backing into paved walls (yes, multiple times), commuting twice weekly to downtown LA, avoiding mysterious objects in the middle of the 5 and 405 freeways-- all while being a smooth comfortable ride. All in all, this makes an EXCELLENT first car if you're looking for reliability, pep and comfortable. It could be a little more stylish, but I've definitely seen uglier with higher price tags.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling, reliability!!  Pep, smooth ride, MPG, did I say reliability?

Cons: large tank, a little pricey to fill all the way up
breaks aren't as responsive as I'd like them to be
