"I bought my Camry with 41,000 miles on it in 2001. It now has 286,200 miles and going strong. I replaced the timing belt after 150k miles, and put new struts on it after 200k miles. With regular oil changes every 3-5 thousand miles, which was done nearly once a month. The car is very comfortable to drive, almost effortless. We may keep the car for the kids to drive when they fly home for visits, or sell it to a family member."
"my parents bought an used 2001 camry back in 2004 when it had only 20K miles on it. i have been using it for the past 4 years, and I love the car. I didn't take care of my car enough... probably a poor car maintainer... still, it still works well... once, I had to replace the battery, but I guess that is because I didn't take care of it well. I have a V6. So... it runs very smoothly... I love the car! I plan to buy a new car in a year or two after I graduate from my masters!... that will be an other camry! :-)
My family is a TOYOTA family... we have a lexus, 2 camrys, and 1 corolla. TOYOTA simply rocks!"
"I own a 2000 Toyota Camry 2.2l 4 with 140,000 miles. It runs perfectly and never has trouble starting. Ive never had to replace anything outside of routine repair, (timing belt,tires, etc.). It rides well and is a quiet car. The interior is roomy and comfortable and wears well over time. Every option still works like new and the speakers still sound good. it also has a huge trunk and can comfortably seat 4, 6 foot people. My only complaints are the power train and fuel economy. I average about 18mpg in city driving which falls well below the EPA figure for this car. The four cylinder also has very little low end power and is strained when merging on the highway. The automatic also annoyingly down shifts and can be frustrating to drive in stop and go traffic. The handling is secure but can lose traction easily under hard cornering. However, it has surprising traction in snow, Ive never gotten stuck in 4 years of Michigan winters. Overall the reliability and quality make this a great car that i will drive for years to come."
