Good Car

by from Midlothian on April 28, 2011

Off to a good start. No issues and exaclty what I expected upon purchase. Smooth riding car for the size. Smoothest that I test drove. Better than accord and fusion in my opinion.

I traded in an 09 for an 11. This was the first toyota i ever bought where they wouldn't come off sticker price. I will not be buying from them again: But the car is good...i don't get the mileage in this 11 as did in the 09 or the other toyotas...but it does have more power and more room. Camry's have a big trunk and plenty of interior room. I will always have a toyota...i might get an SUV next time since i don't get the good mileage anymore. the 1999 camry i owned got 37 on hwy...the 09 got 33 on hwy...now im lucky to get 30 hwy...but is more power...even tho i's rather have the mileage... i had a wreck in my 1990 camry that you wouldn't think anyone would have lived thru; but camry at that time was the second safest car made...thanks toyota for great cars...

I rented a 2011 4 cylinder Camry LE for two weeks and was very pleased with it, for the most part. Compared to other cars I have rented in the past (Sonata, Matrix, Impala, Malibu, Fusion), it is one of the best I have driven. The ride is very comfortable and the seats are firm, but supportive. It had great acceleration and decent braking, though sometimes the brakes felt mushy. The steering was very comfortable and the car felt like it was built well. My biggest complaint would be the transmission. During stop and start city traffic, the car is often searching for the right gear. It lurches up a gear or down a gear rather harshly. It has too many gears, if you ask me. The engine does make quite a bit of whiny/buzzy noise on normal acceleration, too, but otherwise, it is fairly quiet. Gas mileage wasn't quite what was advertised on the window sticker we saw with the manual. We got about 20 mpg around the city. No highway driving, though it had plenty of power for it. Visibility was pretty good, too. One thing that I was suprised by was that all the customizable features, door locks, time lights stay on, etc. could not be set by the owner. The manual says you have to go to a Toyota dealer to have them do it. Also, the split rear seats don't collapse flat to 180 degrees, so some larger cargo pieces, like large flat screen tv boxes wont always fit (I measured the 42", 46" boxes), but overall, this is a very nice car.

I spent one month researching my next car. I was looking at Altimas, Sonatas, Taurus, Accords, and Mazda 6. I test drove all. These are the reasons I choose the Camry. 1. Performance - I need a car to get to work and get the kids to their classes/sports. It is a quiet and smooth drive. I don't hear the engine on the highway at all. I drove the V6 and the 4 cy. had plenty of power! 2. MPG - 32 highway 3. Exterior design - this is subjective, but I like the redesigned front and rear lights. I bought a black and the colored features really pop. 4. Price - My 2011 Camry was about 2 thousand less than some of the other vehicles I was looking for.

Was always more of a Honda person. Had a 1996 Civic DX coupe, put 273,000 miles on it, liked it. Have had many makes, and models of cars, never thought Toyota would be one of my cars. Had a Prius, liked, boring to drive, though, not the advertised gas milage. Camry very good deal, has grown on me. Sometimes boring, told my brother it's the relaxed fit jeans of cars, but zero problems. Expect this car to last a long time. Whine of engine reassures me. Sounds like a turbine, super smooth. Trans does jerk around a bit, think has more gears than knows what to do with, but livable. Gas milage erratic. Sometimes 32 in mixed driving, sometimes 25 in same situations. Highway 30, less than advertised 32. ? I usually get above advertised milage., but, overall, very enjoyable to drive, especially on long trips. No fatigue at all. Makes long trips easy. Something very simple, and likable about the car. Been a learning experience for me. Guy I knew had Honda CRV for years, shows up one day with Toyota Rav 4. Asked him why, told me Honda wouldn't deal on price. Did say it drives more like a truck, whereas Honda drove more like a car.

With a Few Minor Exceptions

I traded in a 1992 Camry XLE (with 265K miles) and bought a 2011 Camry (with 25K miles). I felt right at home in it immediately. There are only a couple of things that bother me, one is the rear view mirror. It just won't adjust right. My rear view seems obstructed, but maybe I just need myself to adjust, I knew my old car very well. I went from a V6 to a 4-cylinder, and I can really tell the difference, although it is not sluggish, I can just tell I don't have that smooth strong power that I used to have. If these are my only issues, I truly believe I made the right choice and i love my [new to me] Camry as much as my old granny Camry.

We did our homework on line and were able to narrow our search (thanks to Cars.com) to three 2011 Camrys that met our strict criteria within a 100 mile radius. We planned to look at all three on a certain Saturday in June and then buy the preferred one that same day. (Note that we have never had a new car nor ever bought from a dealership before, but decided the Toyota 160 point certified inspection and various warranties were worth further investigation). My wife had waited a long time for this purchase and was to be the principle driver of this car. We had no trade-in (since our 90 Buick and 84 Ford station wagon are still purring most of the time). We were so impressed with the first Camry we saw that day that we decided not to take the chance that it could be sold by the time we got back to it after checking out the other two. We don't know what we missed, but we are very happy so far with what we bought and are expecting it to turn out to be one of the best investments we may ever make in a car. We think our dealership experience that day was also more of a divine appointment than we had anticipated. We think the Cars.com website is an excellent way to minimize the search and save a lot of gas in the process. While it is too soon to be able to verify the ratings for performance and reliability of this car, we expect to take proper care of it and it may well be the last one we will ever need.

I have owned this car for a year. My commute is 1hr 30min in bumper to bumper bad road rear end collision chaotic stupidity. That's why I choose this car and it excels in that capacity. The 4cyl is easy on fuel consumption. Plenty of leg room for those long periods of stop & go agony. The seat is comfortable enough and the interior cabin is large. All of the controls are easy to use, see and are well placed. As far as safety it's got 4 wheel disc brakes for those quick stops. Be sure to put a set of quality tires on it's worth it. Not only do you get standard driver & passenger air bags, you get side curtain airbags in the front and back. And the best of all it has a knee airbag for the driver. I got this car in white thinking it would be more visible in traffic and I think I'm right, and glad I did. The ride is a smooth glide with plenty of power to do what I gotta do. It also performs very well on long trips too. It's a really good car. No it won't impress anyone...except the people who would rather have a great running comfortable reliable car.... that will outlast it's loan.

I looked at the 2011 Camry, Accord, and Sonata. Sonata looks great but was very disappointed in the quality of the ride. I have been a previous Accord owner. The Camry is still ahead of the Accord especially in the drive performance/comfort. I would like to see an upgrade to the Camry's interior.
