Editor's Overview

As title-holder of best-selling car in the U.S.A., Toyota’s 2016 Camry sedan should be able to rest on its laurels, but that’s not the case. Fresh from a major design overhaul last year, the 5-passenger Camry is now sleeker and sportier than previous generations, while still retaining its well-deserved reputation for top-notch reliability and resale figures.

Toyota Camry- a reliably average model.

Our Camry is a very reliable and economical car. I actually learned how to drive on it as the sedan style is easy to maneuver. However, there were some issues with the wheel and other parts that were recalled by the company and had to be fixed— the parts were not personally causing us any difficulty but we had to get them fixed per the company’s advising. The ride is very smooth, and depending on the finish that you get for the interior, the seats are also fairly comfortable as well. Overall, the look of the sedan is that of an average, everyday car— it is sleek and will do the job. The radio system is nothing too fancy in our specific model, but the Bluetooth calling is a nice and very useful feature for keeping Focus on the road.

I love all the room inside and in the trunk the car has.

I love my car. This is the second car that I have owned that has never given me any problems at all. The car is extremely comfortable and reliable. I have had it for two years and have never had any problems other than having to replace the battery. The inside is very spacious and has accommodated all of my road trips for my kids soccer games and moving my daughter to college with all of her stuff packed in the car and we still had room to fit me and both of my kids. I needed a reliable car after having a car for six months that was not and could not afford another car payment for something that would not be worth it. This car has exceeded my expectations.

The car is reliable and runs smoothly. I do forget to turn off the engine.

I love the make of my car, the color and the way it drives. It is very reliable. Features, I love my rims on my car. The sunroof and radio and using the radio to connect to your phone to talk, where you are not holding your phone. I like the radio also for driving directions and traffic. The interior I really like the color. The keyless ignition is awesome. Just have to have your keypad on you or in your purse or pocket. I love how it recognizes if you drive away and the key is not close, it lets you know the key is not detected. I also like the phone charger that is built in the slot where you plug your phone to charge. Overall I love my car.

Equipment > Other > Labels Jun 8, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 8, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V420000
Summary:
Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain model year 2016 Toyota Camry and Highlander, 2015-2016 Toyota Tundra, Scion FR-S, and tC vehicles. The Load Carrying Capacity Modification Label may not reflect the correct added weight of the installed accessories. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."
Consequence:
An incorrect label may lead an owner to overload the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
SET will notify owners, and provide a corrected label for placement over the inaccurate label, free of charge. The recall began on July 14, 2016. Owners may contact SET customer service at 1-866-405-4226.

Air Bags > Occupant Classification System - Ocs (front Passenger) Apr 13, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 13, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V215000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2016 Avalon and Camry vehicles manufactured November 30, 2015 to March 4, 2016. The occupant classification system (OCS) that activates or deactivates the front passenger seat air bag system may have been improperly calibrated. As a result, the front passenger air bag and the front passenger knee air bag may not deploy as intended in certain crash scenarios. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Consequence:
Air bags that do not deploy as intended during a crash increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will recalibrate the OCS, free of charge. The recall began by May 13, 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota's number for this recall is G0J.
