Owner Satisfaction

Consumer ­Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

“The 2010 Camry has a 4 cly engine yet it can keep up with the most of them. We have made Many trips between Florida and Connecticut and I can honestly say I am well pleased.”

PETER T., FL (2010 Toyota Camry)

“The acceleration from a stop is aggravating. No matter how lightly you try to push on the pedal, the car lurches. Neither of us are able to make a smooth start. The dealer/service dept. said this is the way this model is. We have a 2010 Camry XLE 4 cyl.”

TOM A., NC (2010 Toyota Camry)

“when shifting (automatic) with cold engine, it struggles to go into the next gear but once it warms up it shifts just fine.”

Anonymous, AR (2010 Toyota Camry)

“1+ second delay from gas pedal to actual acceleration. Not what you buy a V6 for!”

Anonymous, CA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“From a stop, it is hard to accelerate smoothly. It tends to jerk at initial acceleration. We took it in to the dealership soon after purchase but they said everything was fine. This is our only complaint about the vehicle.”

AMY B., VA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“gas mileage is less than expected. My 2002 Camry gets better mileage so I am disappointed Toyota went backwards on this”

Anonymous, TX (2010 Toyota Camry)

“The car has very good acceleration when trying to pass.”

Anonymous, VT (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Weak accelleration due to 4 cyl engine. Weak A/C, takes a good while to blow cooler. However, that could be due to the fact that it's summer in Texas, about 10 months out of 12.”

K J., TX (2010 Toyota Camry)

“The handling of the car is stiff yet not compliant with the road. The firmness of the ride is nothing more than a hard ride that is in no whatsoever a better suspension designed for improved handling. It leaves the impression of being an industrial design. The engine seems to run smoothly but more torque over a broader and higher rpm range is needed. More horsepower/torque are needed and the fuel consume is excessive. The transmission shifting is not smooth and was often abrupt under load.”

VERONIKA A., CA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“We still have problems with the acceleration even after the recall.”

Anonymous, MO (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Very fast when needed. Blew the doors off a new Ram Hemi Truck between lights one night. Amazing acceleration.”

Anonymous, ON (2010 Toyota Camry)

“The 2.5 ltr. With 6 speed transmission is quick and smooth. The suspension g8ve a very comfortable ride.”

ROBERT B., NY (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Originally the handling was unsatisfactory so i purchased and installed an aftermarket front strut bar and a larger rear anti-sway bar. The handling improved dramatically and the car became fun to drive.”

DOUG H., ON (2010 Toyota Camry)

“The car is quiet, tight and responsive.”

NAN A., PA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Should have got the V-6”

Anonymous, CA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Acceleration and handling”

Anonymous, CA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Just what I wanted.”

Anonymous, CA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“The car doesn't have great emergency acceleration. If we have to floor it, the car is a bit sluggish. That can be frightening when you need the car to accelerate quickly and it doesn't. The Camry isn't the best in tight corners--the car tends to drift a little. It doesn't skid (we don't drive all that fast), but it doesn't hug the corners.”

Anonymous, NM (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Poor acceleration at highway speeds ( noticeable hesitation when trying to pass or quick acceleration on an onramp)”

JOEL C., CA (2010 Toyota Camry)

“I'm 5'6". My husband is 6'. He always bumps his head getting in and out. I also do quite often but not always. The cabin noise is too loud. Love the moon roof. It allows us to bring our dog along during warm weather. Love the lumbar support in the driver's seat. Wish passenger seat also had it. Would like climate separate control controls for each side.

Anonymous, NV (2010 Toyota Camry)

“This spring I had to make 3 trips to the shop getting refridgeant replaced. The total cost was about $1200. My leaks started two days after I had the local dealer check it out as a possible trade in. They offered me only $3500 trade for my 2010 camry on a new 2016 camry. I have 109000 miles on my car. I told them they were nuts!!!”

LAMAR W., ID (2010 Toyota Camry)

Anonymous, IL (2010 Toyota Camry)

“Wide and supportive power front seats. Easy to use knobs for climate control. Fairly quiet (especially with the right tires). Good compromise between handling and plushness in ride (this is the V6 SE model).”

WILLIAM P., NY (2010 Toyota Camry)

“1 Driver's seat has no lumbar support/adjustment. 2 There seems to be now way to get a smooth take-off in this vehicle. 3. Engine has rattling on cold start as described in service bulletin in 2013 but was never made aware of the bulletin. I should have been contacted and the problem rectified. Estimate is $CA 2400.”

FRANK D., ON (2010 Toyota Camry)

“This car, with the 2.5 L engine, gets about 2/3 the EPA mileage no matter what gas is used or how it is driven. It suffered a major internal engine failure at 90,000 miles costing $2400 to repair. This is the first car in my experience to have a major internal engine failure.”

PATRICIA G., NJ (2010 Toyota Camry)

“For what is considered to be one of the best cars on the market, and one of the main reasons we bought it new, this car has been a complete dissapointment. The wind noise is terrible. The brakes had to be replace at 45,000 km. The brakes have been problematic for most of the past year. The water pump had to be replaced on warenty at 56,000 km. We will never purchase a Camry again as Toyota has not kept up with its reputation for quality control.”
