Customer Reviews – Toyota Camry
- An owner of Camry is all praise for it and nothing else. He feels it better than Mazda 6. A reasonable priced car that has backseats with lot of space for legs. According to him the driving is comfortable and that he likes it.
- Another Toyota owner has been attached to Toyota Cary for 13 years and it is wonderful. He wanted to buy BMW 500 Mercedes. After test drive he returned to Camry and feels it to be better, considering all aspects of purchase.
- Another independent experience observes that the quality of Camry is over exaggerated. He owns Camry XLE 2005. The first three years no trouble occurred. As the warranty expired the problems started jumping up as if from sleep. With each oil change much more changes and repairs needed attention. The maintenance cost of his car comes to over $500 every six months. He is worried if this cost stay shooting up what would be his options.
- Yet another buyer is more disturbed. He had purchased his first Camry and confidently his last. During the first 400 miles the car stalled 6 times. The next problem is the engine indicator and traction control lights are on. The total mileage covered is only 1150. The engine is stalling again. The car has already visited and was carefully attended to by Toyota once. He thinks he will have to take it back to Toyota again. He further comments that he faced no such problems with any car from the many he purchased in the past.
