The is a good car for its price.

My Toyota currently is 15 years old and has decent amount of mileage on it so it's not in the best shape. It still gets me from point A to point B. Interior is still nice but there are a few bumps on the outside due to hitting a deer and other situation but has but able to continue on. One of the main issues with my Camry is the brakes, it seem the brake pads always seem to break and needs replacing every 3 months of so. The track of the tires and in combination of the brakes makes it pretty difficult to drive in snow in rain in recent years. This issue would be the main issue I would say to get a new car after, roughly 10 years.

The Camry is cheap and reliable.

This is the third Toyota Camry I've ever owned, I prefer this car over any other 4 door car. The main issue I have noticed about these cars have been oil leaks, not too bad, but they leak over time. My most recent issue with my 2003 Toyota Camry was the radiator needing replaced, which in my opinion, that's not too bad considering you can change it yourself with help from YouTube videos and save money. The radiator costed me $145 at my local auto parts store and so I spent less than $200 be replacing the part myself. I would recommend the Camry to anyone I know who is looking for a reliable, gas friendly, smooth riding vehicle.

The 2003 Camry is spacious, reliable, comfortable and fun!

The Camry is a joy to drive, and is a reliable, well-performing vehicle. Features include a sunroof, ample cup-holders and storage spaces, a roomy interior and lots of trunk space. The seats are extremely comfortable and it drives well in a variety of weather conditions. The only issue I've had so far (I purchased the car used a few months ago) is that the brakes are a little squeaky (which I'm going to get fixed as soon as I have a day off to get to the mechanic).
