I have owned this car since the spring of 2000 and outside of normal maintenance it has never failed to start or allow me to arrive safely to my destination. Currently, I have some 120,000 miles on this car and plan to use it until my end of life. full 2000 Toyota Avalon review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the Toyota Camry

Toyota Camry Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2015 In some ways, it's just as important what Toyota has not changed as what they have. They body and interior might have been heavily revised, but these aren't parts prone to failure. Most of the mechanical and electronic bits weren't touched. The engines and transmission have remained the same since 2007. Direct injection, forced induction, dual-clutch automated transmissions--you still won't find these beneath the hood of a Camry. So the Camry's outstanding reliability can be expected to continue with the 2015. Except for the non-hybrid 2010, the 2006-2012 Fusion was nearly as reliable as the Camry. The redesigned 2013 has been a bit troublesome, though, and the 2014 has been about average (so neither bad nor great). The Accord was also redesigned for 2013, but has remained about as reliable as the Camry. full 2015 Toyota Camry review

Cheap and weak parts. At 110,000 miles I have replaced the radiator and alternator neither of which are wear and tear parts that should be needing replacement so soon. In addition the front end of the suspension makes a clunking noise over bumps. full 2002 Toyota Camry review
