2003 Toyota Camry LE 2.4 from North America
Great choice for Family car
The steering wheel was making a grinding noise, the dealer fixed it up quickly for me and the issue is gone now. I bought the car from a Honda dealer and they only gave me one set of keys and keep telling me they will get me another set, but I am still waiting. This is a Honda issue not Toyota though.
We needed a car that can fit a 2 child seats and an adult in the back seat. The Camry does the job very, also it's a good commuting car for me. Gas mileage is OK, but I think it'll improve as the engine gets broken in. Seats are comfortable for long drives and the trunk is huge. This was a great mini-van/SUV alternative. So 4 people and a large dog can travel with lots of space in this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Broken in? This is a 2003 car with roughly 50k on board. So when you expect this to occur? Or maybe you changed the engine and forgot to mention...

I hate to break it to you, the mileage is not going to improve. The salesman "sold you a bill of goods".

14:56 Yes, the mileage will most likely improve as the car breaks in. My Tacoma's mileage improved almost 2 mpg after 70,000 miles. This is common with Toyota engines, or any other engine that's built tightly and precisely in the first place.

Update: car is at 65K now and the mileage did improve, I am glad I bought it with the gas prices the way they are now. No problems as of now and still handles smooth.

Update - 180KM and still running great. I only replaced the tires, and yes the gas mileage improved.
