Reviewed: 2009 Toyota Camry

4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

Why the 2009 Toyota Camry?

Powertrain performance

The 268 HP V-6 coupled to a 6-speed automatic is very smooth and fuel efficient. The shiftable automatic comes in handy while driving in the mountains.

Fuel economy

I have an overall average of 28.5 mpg for the 78,000 miles I have driven this car, mostly on long trips. 30 MPG average is common on highways under 65 mph, and 26-28 is more the norm during 75 MPH interstate driving. 24-26 is common in suburban driving

Reliability & durability

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.


The ride is generally quiet but wind noise is evident at freeway speeds in high cross-winds.

Cargo capacity

Very spacious trunk that normally carries 2 of our bicycles with the wheels removed, and most of our luggage.

Why Not the 2009 Toyota Camry?

Exterior styling

The exterior styling is conservative compared to the new Sonata and Altima.
