    2008 Toyota Camry I bought mine new with 13 miles. Replaced both sunvisors, replaced both brake rotors, seat are not comfortable, cheap interior, now the A/C is not working. Toyota is telling me that the cost to repair it is over $2100 parts & Labor. The car have 16223 miles. No one else will touch it because the condenser is not in a easy place to access.

    I owned many Toyotas and I feel for the people having problems with this Camry. This 08 Camry SE is the only toyota I have made in USA and I am having more problems than all of the others combined. The acceleration problem is well known and had dealer fix that as part of massive recall. They shaved the underside of the carpet and maybe replaced the pedal. I noticed an improvement in the automatic shifting after they reprogrammed the ecu. No stalling on turns. The visor is being recalled after I got mine replaced at 20K. Tires replaced at 28K with Continental DSW, very good tires. The front rotors cause a little shudder when braking at high speeds, turned it at 40K and now needs another one at 60K. Brake pads are still good but they say original are hard on rotors so I am going to go with Akebono pro-act. Now it's past warranty, I can't open my seldom used sunroof. The rubber seal is sticking as it tries to go down and in. The sun and waxing probably doomed it.

    I bought mine new with less than 300 miles. Drove the 4cyl & 6cyl and got the 6cyl since their wasn't that much difference in mileage. If I fill the tank and set the cruise at 55 got up to 41.1 mpg. Right front tire blew out as soon as I parked at work. Took it to Toyota, was told nothing they could do about it. (had 27,000 miles and just under 3 yrs old). Told me I must have hit something. I'm the only driver and I never hit anything. read out on radio disappears and comes back when you push in on screen. People complain they can't hear me when connected to blue tooth through radio. Heater takes a while to heat up compared to other new vehicles I've had over the years. I'm considering trading it off, it drives great but I'm just not that crazy about it in general. To date it has 34,000 miles on it 5 years later. I have a full size f-150 I drive to work everyday and anymore on the weekends I grab it's keys rather than the toyota. The trucks a 99 with 211,000 miles. Oh i replaced all the junk (my opinion) Michelins with Uniroyal Tiger Paws 70k mile tires. The rides the same and had great experience with a previous vehicle with these tires.

    The "Check Engine Light" came on to find out an oxygen-fuel sensor went bad. The car is a 2008 Camry with 20,850 miles on it. I took it to Freehold DCH Toyota and the charged me $600+ dollars for 1 hr worth of time. At less than 21,000 miles the repair should have been free, but $600?? That is a legalized mugging. Also have a 2008 FJ and the drivers arm rest has cracked. Taking it in today to see if its covered.

    I owned a 2007 Toyota Tacoma, which was the best truck, I have ever owned. When my wife wanted us to get a family car to save on gas and money, I thought buying a Camry would be a nice change. Boy, was I wrong. I miss my Tacoma to say the least. Anyway, I digress. We purchased a used 2008 Camry with 25,000 miles in Aug. of 2008. Within the first week we had to take it back to the dealer to fix a warble in the brake rotors and have the pad's replaced. We thought this was the worst of our nightmares, not so. After a few weeks of driving, we noticed that the fuel economy was only about 19 miles per gallon with highway/city driving. So I did a standard tune up, myself, changed the spark plugs, air filters, oil change, checked the plug wires, and so forth. When pulling the spark plugs, I found that the plugs were gapped so far apart, that I am surprised the engine even ran. Also, the plugs were oxidized with some sort of white crystal like material. The bells should have gone off in my head at the time. I replaced the spark plugs with the OEM recommendation and gapped them correctly at .043. This seemed to raise the gas mileage by about three miles to the gallon. Not much improvement in my book, but it met the standard for city driving for the Camry. Then at 38000 miles, we started hearing this rattling upon acceleration from underneath the vehicle. I climbed underneath to see if anything came loose, and I could not find anything. So I took it to the Toyota Dealership. They informed me that this was noted in a Service Bulletin. I thought "Great!" this should be fixed for free. Then the news came that if I had brought it in before 36000 miles it would have been free. Now they were going to charge me almost $400 just for the part then labor on top of that. What a joke, they must have been crazy. A few months later, my wife pulled on the Sun Visor to use the mirror and the whole thing broke off, leaving just the metal arm lever. I tried to fix it, but the plastic visor just kept breaking apart. Well, I finally got it fixed with aluminum straps that I wrapped around the outside of the visor under the cloth. This held it in place good. Then just recently back in Aug. of 2011, the driver's side visor broke off. I fixed it the same way. In Nov. 2011, our windshield got a chip in it one day. There was just a small chip. The next day it had spread into major cracks that spread across the windshield over to the drivers viewing area. The next thing that has happened is with the brakes. In March of 2011, I replaced the front brakes, because they were half warn down. The back brakes were the same, half warn down. Now, the rear brakes are completely warn down to the metal and grooving the rotors. What is up with Toyota using cheap parts. I am only going to buy American from now on. I am done with the Japanese crap that is being put out now. Give me something strong and not build with plastic interiors.

    I am unhappy with my 2009 camry se. I bought it new and have been sorry ever since. I could cry thinking about it, but it does not get the gas mileage it is supposed to, it is noisy inside, cheap interior parts, now the a/c has a leak in the hose which will be another $500+. Think the dealer would give me a deal? Ha, no way, I must be on drugs to bring up such a ridiculous idea. Tires have been replaced and time to do that again, I am so disappointed, I paid way too much for it because the dealer lied to me and the se cost almost as much as the xle and probably could have gotten the better model, can't remember the name. I sold my 2000 acura tl and am so sorry to have wasted over $20,000 when I loved my acura. It just had 150,000 on it so thought i would upgrade since i can't afford to have trouble on the road, but come to find out, it was barely broken in. It was a MUCH nicer car even tho 9 years older.

    I own a 2008 Camry SE, and I would NEVER purchase another one. While my car was under warranty, I had to have the seals around the windshield and sunroof replaced because they were improperly installed, and I had to have the CD player repaired. Recently, at 68,000 miles, I had to replace the water pump. Now at 70,000, my A/C is not working, and Toyota is telling me that the cost to repair it is $2900 ($2168 just for the compressor!). Considering Toyota's "reputation" and the cost of the car, I am disgusted by the problems I am having. I will NEVER purchase another Toyota!

    I purchased a 2008 Toyota Camary brand new, this car a piece of crap. The first month I had it the car wouldn't stop. Toyota looked at it and said its fine. It almost killed me. The visors break easily. There cheap. My bearing went out before 60,000 miles. I don't recommend Toyota.

    My first Toyota Camry was a 1997, and I loved it. We bought a 2008 Camry, and that was a BIG mistake. The water pump went out at 61,000 miles and destroyed the head gasket, thus destroying the engine. I have read other reviews on 2007 Camrys that did the same thing. If this is a common occurrence, why does Toyota not have to compensate the owners? I can assure you, this is our last Camry, and I will no longer recommend a Camry to anyone. The quality has really gone down hill

    This is the second Camry of this style I own. I've been very pleased with it. The only gripe I have is that it is slow to get moving. Also when it gets cold it shakes a bit like a manual transmission does when the revs are too low...this is an automatic transmission however.

    What a gutless wonder. It is loud, and handles like a bucket of water. the seats are not comfortable. This car has just reminded me to keep buying american.
