Toyota Camry Problems
The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.
The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks, particularly in the V6 models.
One or more motor mounts may wear out on cars with high mileage. This will put extra stress on the other mounts, and the faulty mount(s) should be replaced.
The valve cover gaskets have a tendency to leak oil, especially the one near the firewall.
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Toyota Camry Reviews
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.
2003 camry v6. I bought it new and never did anything other than regular maintainance exept never adj. valves. Still like new with 228,000 miles. Uses no oil, always ran mobile 1. I did just put struts on for the first time. I love this car
I just got my 1997 toyota camry and I love it. It now showing some minor repairs that need to be done. This car had 142,000 miles on it when i purchased it and it is the best. I love this car and I will keep going with my Toyota.
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.
My 2007 Camry is the best car I have ever owned. I have 70,000 miles on it and I do a lot of city driving. The only thing I had to replace is a bulb in the rear along with tires once and the brakes one time. I do an oil chg with synthetic oil every 5 k miles. So far it is a great car.
