I recently got my drivers license and the car I got was the 2001 Toyota Camry LE. In fact it was my mothers car, and then she gave it to me. We got it back in 2001 when I was about 3 years old, so this car has been running exceptionally for a very long time. I got it with about 143,500 miles on it and has had only one major repair on it (the sunroof). Other than that, it is a very reliable car, comfortable, has plenty of trunk space, looks, feels clean, it is also great car when on a budget. The mileage is great, in fact it gets about 30 mpg which beats most other similar sized cars.
Some of the features that I have with the LE model include leather seats, leather interior, power windows/lock, AC,heat, drivers seat is electronically adjustable, the sound system is also upgraded. There are others, but I do not know them by memory, as we have had this car a long time.
This car has seen all types of weather. It has been up north in the cold and it has also seen the beach multiple times. I live on the east coast in the mid atlantic region, so temperatures are mild year round. One issue that I did find is that as the car ages, the paint wears off. I am sure that it is true with all cars, but the Camry seems to wear on the hood. So, be aware of that, it is a easy fix if caught early on in the wearing process. Also, the car does not have heated or cooled seats, so in extreme heat and cold, it can be quite uncomfortable at first.
All in all, this has been a workhorse. It has seen a lot of the country and has kept us safe for almost 14 years, and I am glad to have it as my own. I would definitely recommend this to anybody who is looking for an affordable sedan that looks sleek, has comfort, and has great mileage.
I would however, recommend any of the early 2000 Camry's as I like the body shape and look of them. The newer Camry's don't look as good.
