Reliable car or risky low rider?

2008 Toyota Camry Base

I love that the 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid gets great gas mileage because that means my family can go farther! We love to take day trips, road trips, and travel, we've even gone across the United States in this car. I also love that Toyotas are so reliable, and that when something goes wrong (which is hardly ever) it is very easy to get it fixed almost anywhere. The moon roof and seat warmers are an excellent touch, and the stereos 4 disc CD changer is an awesome feature. The map/GPS/navigation situation is pretty reliable. The only thing I do not really like about this car is that it is low to the ground and has a thin plastic cover running under the bottom to cover the engine compartment. This is fine if you live in a city, but for a while we lived off a dirt road which tore that thing up several times. This means that animals like squirrels and mice can easily get on up and build a nest in your engine compartment unless you have access to a garage or the bottom cover manages to stay in tact.

Safe, Comfortable, Compact

2008 Toyota Camry Base

I love my car. I didn't want a Camry initially but when I test drove it (per dad's request) I was instantly in love! I've had it for about 10 years now and it still runs like the day I got it. It's reliable and comfortable. Safety was a really big concern for me when I was looking to buy a car, and the Camry has excellent safety ratings and really good visibility. I can fit two car seats in the back comfortably, and have a lot of trunk space for groceries or vacations. I used to drive a larger vehicle, so I really like the fact that my Camry is small and easily maneuvered, but it is large enough to be comfortable, even when the car is packed with stuff for college or a night out with my friends.

Great car. I grew up using Toyota and would definitely purchase a Camry again.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

This car works great. I love the volume controls on the steering wheel. I feel safe in it. I wish it had Bluetooth but what can you expect in a car this old? The seats adjust well and the electronic mirrors are nice too. It has been a reliable car so far with few problems. The main problem we've had is that the visors tore off so when we drive towards the sun it can be a little difficult.

- Katie D

It's a very reliable, comfortable, long lasting car. An overall great choice

2008 Toyota Camry Base

To start off, the car has only broke down on me once in my life, I've had the car for about 7 years now. It's still in really great condition, it's got great mileage, the AC gives exactly what you want, it can be nice cold air for hot summers or hot and snug air for the cold winters or a nice cool breeze for the in between seasons. Its seats are very comfortable, padded armrests

Toyota's are the best, get one for yourself.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

My car sometimes doesn't go all the way fast as I want it to and my seat moves back slow. Other than those things I love my car because Toyota's last long and that is what makes them reliable. Not only that but the colors options are great, all of the versions are different car sizes from small to compact. It's a great car to get for a first time driver.

Great car for a family...

2008 Toyota Camry Base

It's a good car. Has good gas mileage and drives smooth. The seats are comfy and spacious. It has a nice and strong AC. It is always a pleasure to drive my Camry. It has plenty of space in the trunk for a spare wheel and groceries. I will keep driving my Camry as long as it holds up and when it is time for a new car, I will be looking for another Camry.

- Jen Z

Excellent family car, great for everyday use or road trips.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

My Toyota Camry is extremely reliable. We use it for every day running around as well as road trips. It's excellent on gas. We recently had to fix the brakes and alternator but that's with any car after having it awhile. The only drawback that I don't like is the vents are only in the front and not in back. But it does cool/heat fairly quickly.

- Andrea S

Toyota is the best buy for your money

2008 Toyota Camry Base

My vehicle drives quite smooth. It gives me excellent mileage on gas. I never had any major problems. I maintain with yearly tuning up. I only replaced tires after three years. Brakes are quite good for the mileage. My car is quite spacious. It accommodates three medium size persons quite comfortably. I really enjoy my car. Great car.

The Toyota Camry has made a believer out of me

2008 Toyota Camry Base

I bought my 2008 Toyota Camry used and it has been one of the best vehicles I've ever had. The only thing that has needed repaired is the battery terminals.it's a smooth comfortable ride and has pick up and go when it needs to.the radio is great. Factory stuff is good stuff when this car is involved.

- Suzanne H

Wonderful car, very reliable and would highly recommend.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

It has no issues, best car ever. Love the make and model and very reliable. Should buy car because it won't break down on you. Only issues is for my car only (gas leak and tires). Drives smooth and gets great gas mileage. Can fill my tank up for relatively cheap and gets me where I need to be.

- Jordan D

Overall, my vehicle is getting old but it is still running.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

The battery is always dying, and the horse power is getting worn off. When I drive the car it has a weird noise and it's almost like no matter how hard you push the gas pedal it never speeds up. I like that it has an aux cord hole so that I can play my music and I like the JBL speakers.

Tammy the Camry: An awesome car that's been through 3 drivers

2008 Toyota Camry Base

I love my car! It's safe, very driveable, and has good gas mileage! I have never had an issue with my Camry, as the popular saying goes 'you can't kill a Camry'. I wish it had Bluetooth and more interior radio features, but It is nice overall, and I would strongly recommend it!

- Kevin B

Toyota Camry y'all guy car review

2008 Toyota Camry Base

The car is very reliable. Just keep the normal maintenance it needs every few months. Oil changes should be every 2-3 months. It's very spacious with a huge trunk. Also, I like the feature that it does not allow you to lock the door while the keys are in the ignition

- Kevin M

Pretty good overall, even after 10 years.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

This car serves its purpose and is not a complete eyesore. Being that the car is 10 years old it still runs pretty well do to taking care of it I assume. As of late the ac has been giving some issue but other than that, this car is fine. Toyota's really do last!

- Dante H

An 11 year make, great mileage, high performance, and matches my personality.

2008 Toyota Camry Base

Most cars nowadays do not have a CD player, such as the new Chevy Traverse my parents invested in recently. I love the mileage it has, the safety features, the room my car has for luggage and school supplies, and the overall performance is just perfect for me.
