Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I bought the car used and have been very surprised at the quality of the Camry. I have driven the car 4 years. The
only things I have had done to it were at 180000 miles
there was a small oil leak from the oil pump seal, a
$150 repair. At 201000 miles I had the timing belt replaced
for $180. The car is very reliable. I drive it to Las Vegas
from San Diego without a second thought as to reliability.
I average 16 mpg in city driving and 30+mpg on the hiway.
I have owned 5 Fords,3 Chevrolets,1 Lincoln,2 Mercurys,
2 Buicks, 2 Oldsmobiles, 1 Cadillac, 2 VW's,1 Citroen
and 2 Triumphs. I think that is enough cars to compare
and make the statement "It's the best car I have owned
in 65 years of driving"."
"I bought the vehicle in 2011 with 250,000 KM. I have only had to change the fluids, the timing belt, and the brakes. The suspension has gone on it, bottoms out very easily and I haven't had the opportunity to get it repaired. The exhaust hangs low on the car, causing it to scrape on the ground when the car bottoms out. I have replaced the speakers and the stereo with a modern sound system. The electronics on the car (sun roof, windows, locks, driver seat) all work fine. Great on gas, 65 - 70 liters of gas lasts approximately 600 KM in the city and 700 KM on the highway. I had a flat tire the other day and was very surprised to find a full size spare in my trunk, (not sure if it came stock or the previous owner had left it there). The car handles well despite the suspension issues, and highway driving is very smooth, plenty of passing power even for a 2.2 4 cylinder. The engine runs great, it has started in -30 degree Celsius weather unplugged without a hiccup. The body is starting to rust, the clear coat is chipping off the roof, small cosmetic"
"I purchased my 98 Camry with 48k on it in 2001 and now with 517K. I Stay on top of oil changes and regular maintenance and it still has original engine. Starts up great and has yet to fail me. Best car I have owned. Plan on getting to 600k or even 750K.. unless the wheels fall off before then :)"
"I purchased my 97 Camry in 2006 and the only problem I ever had with it was a bad O2 sensor. I bought it with around 155,000 miles on it and just recently broke the 200,000 mile mark. The only reason why I am getting rid of it is because it was totaled by the insurance company (not my fault) and I am getting ready to purchase a 2001 Camry. By the way this car was purchased with a salvage title (which means it was totaled once before and rebuilt) I never thought I would drive a Toyota, now I don't think that I won't drive one."
"My parents drove my mother's 2001 Toyota Camry from Kentucky to California back in the summer of 2008 and left it for me as a gift (they flew back home to Kentucky). What a gift!
The 2001 Toyota Camry has been the best car I've ever owned. When I received the car from my parents, it had about 70,000 miles on it. I've put over 80,000 more miles since 2008.
The only repairs I've dealt with: I replaced the timing belt at around 130,000 miles (first time it ever needed replaced), and got some new tires put on it a couple years ago. I also had the motor on the driver's side door window replaced (the window went down, but not back up, so I had to get that fixed).
What's amazing is the air conditioning still works at 150,000 miles and I live in Southern California and use the A/C about every day.
I'm also 6'3 in height and there's plenty of leg room. The CD player still works great and has great sound.
I'd recommend this car to anyone if you can find it. Great gas milage too, and I love the look of the vehicle."
