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

2014 Even though the Corolla is a new design in its first year, among current compact sedan it will likely last the longest while requiring the fewest repairs. Few other models in TrueDelta's car reliability survey have been as consistently reliable.

2007 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4

The Gen 9 Corolla's birthplace and sudden lineup change doesn't detract from the car's longstanding reputation for reliability. If you maintain it, it will last a long, long time with no serious trouble. Having seriously used one of these, I found that as long as it is maintained and somewhat cared for, it will always take care of you. I also know that it is an okay car for heavy use, but that's not really the car's role. It will hold up to a surprising amount of abuse over its lifetime without falling apart. If you have to do heavy residential driving or accelerate to high speeds daily, you may find yourself wearing out brakes and transmission clutchpacks at an alarming rate. full 2007 Toyota Corolla review
