2000 Toyota Camry Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
A minor facelift is the main news for 2000 on the Camry, America’s favorite passenger car. Camry outsold the Honda Accord in 1997 and 1998 and has a big lead in the 1999 race.

Not only does Toyota sell more than 400,000 Camrys a year in the United States, the same basic front-wheel-drive platform serves as the architecture for the Camry Solara coupe, the Avalon sedan and the Lexus ES300. Most Camrys sold in the United States are built at Toyota’s Georgetown, Ky., plant, but some are imported from Japan.

Exterior
Most of this year’s styling changes are at the front, including a new grille with dual horizontal bars, bumper and multi-reflector headlamps. The rear also has a new bumper and taillights with wider horizontal reflectors.

Camry’s 105-inch wheelbase is 2 inches shorter than the rival Accord’s, and the 189-inch overall length is the same as the midsize Honda. Unlike the Accord, which comes in coupe and sedan styling, the Camry comes only as a sedan. The Camry Solara coupe, which wears different styling, is treated as a separate model by Toyota.

Interior
Camry has ample space for four adults, and the driver’s seat provides enough adjustment to accommodate tall or short people. The dashboard layout is a typical Toyota design that is uncluttered, attractive and convenient, except that the climate controls are too low to easily operate while driving. Split rear seatbacks standard on all models supplement the 14-cubic-foot ...

The dashboard layout is a typical Toyota design that is uncluttered, attractive and convenient, except that the climate controls are too low to easily operate while driving. Split rear seatbacks standard on all models supplement the 14-cubic-foot trunk.

Under the Hood
A 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine with 136 horsepower (three more than last year) is standard on the CE and LE models. A 194-horsepower, 3.0 liter V-6 is standard on the XLE, optional on the LE. Versions of the V-6 also are used in the Lexus ES300 sedan and RX300 sport utility vehicle. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on the CE and LE V-6 and a four-speed automatic is optional. All others come with the automatic.

Safety
Side-impact airbags for the front seats are optional on all models. Anti-lock brakes are standard on V-6 models and optional on those with the four cylinder, and traction control is optional on V-6 models with automatic transmission.

Performance
Camry is as close to a blue-chip investment as there is in a family car. All cars lose value as they age, but the Camry loses less than most, and someone else will be happy to buy yours when you’re done with it. Camry’s quality, reliability and durability are three more good reasons to buy this car. Because the ES300 uses the same basic design as the Camry, some of what makes the ES300 a good entry-level luxury car makes the Camry an excellent family car.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
