Bullet proof reputation and easy access to dealer if there is an issue. Have never had a problem with a Toyota vehicle.
2011 4dr Sedan 169-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
My experience with this car has been great across all categories with the exception of a few minor cosmetic repairs. A little better MPG would be nice though.
2009 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
owned a 1997 for 325,000 kms never a problem, 10litres/100km from day 1 to day I sold it.

Has a great reputation for reliability and durability...just keeps on going.
2009 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
This Camry has proven very reliable with no unscheduled repair issues in the first 80,000 miles. There were three Toyota recalls but no issues were apparent due to them.
2009 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Camry has a good reliability record.
2008 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid

17K miles not a single issue.
2008 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid

Reputation for quality instills confidence. Have not had the car back in the repair shop in 10,000 miles. Do minor maintenance myself.
2008 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid

I have owned a Camry before and it was virtually problem free.
2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6

This Camry and the previous Solara owned for 10 years, have been trouble-free.

Know it would last , Leary of buying the VW

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
No cons!
2002 4dr Sedan 157-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
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.

2010 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I have given it a thrashing and nothing has broken. It is a Toyota so it probably wont be breaking any time soon. Interior components arent top of the line, but they are tough. Seat is firm and will likely last a good while.
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
The most reliable car in its category.
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4

This will be the 5TH Toyota that I have owned and all of them have given great service & reliability
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4

Nothing has broken yet, even after hitting a snow bank it was able to drive 15km home.
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
60000 miles on odometer, only regular oil and oil filter changes (every 5000-6000 miles ) and air filter (once) so far. Start in the morning and then keep going
2008 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Not a single problem yet (1 year)
2008 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4

As I said before... the reliability and durability of this car has amazed me so far - 70K miles and 5 years.
2007 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Corolla has proven to be the most reliable car in Canada for many years. I owned other Toyotas before and was exteremly happy with the cost of ownership over a long period of time.
2007 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Bullet-proof reputation, ease & cost of maintenance
2006 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4

Had lots of wear on car and recent Toyota reliability reports made it risky to buy a Toyota even though I had reliable Toyota for years. Might buy one again when their are stable reliablity trend.

I am concerned about the EPS and the new engine design. Although some have disliked the EPS, the jury is still out for me. Plus, will it be reliable long-term? Also, I have read about some oil consumption problems. Hmm ...
