2001 Toyota Camry is a perfect starter car.

My 2001 Toyota Camry is always reliable and drives very smoothly. I bought it used three years ago with about 140, 000 miles already on it and I have no complaints. The only thing that I found weird about my car is that the battery will die if I do not drive it often, like if it sits in the garage for more than three weeks. Other than that, my car is an amazing starter car for teenagers. The seats are very comfortable and all of the added features to my car that I have done or previous owners have done make it stand out on the road. I love my Toyota so much and couldn't think of a better starter car.

It very low maintenance for how old it is.

My car has been very reliable and has never left me stranded. The only time it didn't start is when the battery needed to be replaced. The size of my car is just right. I feel very comfortable and in control when driving. I have had this car for over five years and I have only had to replace one headlight and one blinker light. The door handle on the drivers side broke so I have to use a rope tied on it to open it, which means I have to roll the window down each time I get out.

Take care of this car, and it will last you many years of reliable service.

My 2001 Toyota Camry has been a rock-solid reliable vehicle since I purchased it 4 years ago. Even at its age, it remains comfortable and secure for daily driving. I've made multiple trips up and down the East Coast with it, and it's never let me down. Mine currently has 160,000 miles and I'm hoping to drive it for another 100,000 at least. You don't need to spend a lot of money to obtain a good car. The 2001 Toyota Camry is one of the best used cars for the dollar.

Safety Recalls (2)

chevronDown icon
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V012
Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles built at Toyota's Kentucky plant, the accelerator cable housing could be deformed at the cruise control actuator-to-throttle body connection. The accelerator inner-cable could wear away and eventually break, allowing the throttle to return to idle or remain in its most recent position regardless of accelerator pedal operation. This could increase the risk of a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the accelerator cable. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during February 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
