2001 Toyota Camry XLE V6 from North America


Good, reliable car!


There were some leaking gaskets/valves and tires seem to wear out quickly.

Six CD changer no longer works (original stereo), but the radio still does for some reason. Kind of bummed my CDs that were inside it are gone (unless I decide to swap it out, which is unlikely due to the age of the car).

General Comments:

It has really been very reliable and I haven't had too many problems, especially with the high mileage it now bestows. I would probably buy another Toyota, but the body style of this particular year has been my biggest complaint about the car -- nothing fancy, even though it came with lots of options internally. I am hoping to get to 250K miles before I need to trade it in!

Would buy again in a heartbeat


Changed cooling temperature sensor (39$) at dealer.

Regular fluids, belts and tire changes.

General Comments:

Very reliable, no rattle and well built (J-VIN so Japan made).

Soft plastics used for upper dashboard.

Comfy seats and well insulated interior.

Mechanicals and body in excellent condition, despite 11 very harsh North Canadian winters.

Great instruments layout and nice steering wheel.

Average acceleration (4 cylinders), but smooth shifting 4 speed automatic transmission.

Classy styling for those who prefer old style (like me).

Big trunk for those who need it. Never had problems with the car, and loving it.

Definitely would be buying again, and very satisfied.

Wonderful car: Very quiet and comfortable to drive. Has about 49,000 miles. I do wish the gas mileage was a little better. Gets 24 MPG, if I'm lucky with the 4 cylinder automatic.

Both the front and rear catalytic converters have been replaced, at around 1500 dollars a piece. They continually cause the check engine light to go on about every 3 to 4 months.

The spark plugs, and ignition wires were replaced as well.

General Comments:

Comfortable, and drives nice, but way too expensive to continually repair, and frustrating. Camry's have a good reputation, but there is something wrong with mine. I will not buy another Toyota. When I purchased the vehicle, it had no history in Carfax of any issues, such as accidents or floods.

It's a nice looking car, and it has never left me stranded.

Very pleased with the vehicle


The only problem I have experienced with the vehicle is the key sometimes freezes when trying to start the vehicle. I have to jiggle the key a little bit to get it to start. A number of people have told me the tumblers are worn and the key is not fitting like it should.

General Comments:

The 2001 Toyota Camry is an outstanding vehicle. I am coming up on putting 100,000 miles since I purchased it used three years ago. The car has never been in shop, excluding oil changes, and has exceeded my expectations.

Would not hesitate in purchasing another one.

2001 Toyota Camry CE 2.2L I-4 from North America


The most dependable car I have ever owned


Original spark plug wires had to be replaced at 100,000 miles.

Had to replace the windshield wiper fluid reserve tank due to an accident prior to my ownership.

General Comments:

I bought this car at 98,000 from a friend for a little over $2,000. Although it has several minor dents, and the seats are littered with cigarette burns, it runs like a champ.

This is the cheapest car I've ever owned. In the last 10,000 miles I've only had to change the oil, and replace the spark plug wires.

The engine is very smooth and quiet.

It handles well, but at highway speeds the steering begins to feel floaty. You don't get a good feel of the road.

The I-4 version of this car is really underpowered. At highway speeds you will find yourself stepping on the gas to pass people. However the fuel economy is above average and I find myself averaging 28 MPG.

This car feels very solid, and that is apparent when you close the doors. The inside of the vehicle is very sturdy and the cup holders in the front are significantly above average.

This car has been very reliable and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Toyota.
