2008 Toyota Camry LE 2.4 liter 4 cylinder from North America
Not reliable, but no really major engine or transmission problems yet at 59000 miles
This is a review after 59000 miles.
Steering rack - complete replacement at 59000 miles.
Excessive oil consumption - this is a well known problem with 2AZ-FE engines.
Occasional hesitation when starting.
Sun visors fell down.
Accelerator problems; recalled and fixed.
Car key broke in half after 47,500 miles. The car key is plastic
at the top, making it very easy to break off the metal key shaft.
Steering noises. Hopefully this should go away with the new
The steering rack should not have failed so early.
This car feels safe to drive after the accelerator recall was finished.
The engine has consumed oil since the problem was discovered at only about 13,000 miles. The car uses about 1 quart every 1,500 to 2,000 (possibly 2,300) miles.
At this rate of oil consumption, I change the oil at the dealer every 3000 miles - because the oil consumption increases.
There are very large pillars on either side of the windshield; these could easily obstruct the view of a pedestrian.
The car key contains the fob, and only the lower part of the car key is metal. This is a very fragile design. With normal usage, the plastic part of the car key broke off, releasing the metal part after only 47,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
