Car Review: 2003 Toyota Camry
September 04, 2010, 04:30 PM
I bought this car in 2004 with 12,500 miles on it. Mechanically, the engine and transmission have run flawlessly except for a blown head gasket. Brakes and tires seem to wear out very quickly, and alignment needs to be corrected often. Front end shimies when brakes are about 20K miles old, which I think is rotor warp, but don't know for sure. Oddly, in hot weather, the auto-door lock feature will lock doors, but not unlock them. When in cooler weather, it works fine. Back-lit knobs on dash have gone dark. All in all, the car is pretty good, but will try a Ford next time.
