2003 Toyota Camry XLE 2.4 I4 from North America
The car pulls to the left and drifts constantly. It is also very sensitive to wind. The dealership was unable to remedy this problem in 4 visits and then suggested I request buy-back under the Lemon Law. Toyota prevailed in the arbitration and will not make further attempts at repair. I have gone to one independent garage for an alignment, but they have declined to attempt any corrective repairs as all the alignment specifications are within norms for the car.
This car is very tiresome on a trip. Constant steering correction make it impossible to take your eyes off the road for even a second.
Take a long test drive before you buy one of these cars. Treat is as if you were buying a used car, and you'll probably be okay.
Non-existent warranty support has made the purchase of this Toyota Camry a nightmare experience.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This is a follow-up to the review. Since the time of the post, I embarked on a letter-writing campaign. I was recently contacted by Toyota Customer Service. They requested the opportunity to make another attempt to fix my car. I was advised that they had discovered a problem with the upper spring insulator causing the car to handle badly and pull to the left. I happily agreed, and they have corrected the problem. I felt it only fair to inform the public that they have corrected the problem--albeit 5 months late. The car drives perfectly.
