The new Camry offers sleeker styling, but it's the improved fuel economy and handling, plus standard advanced safety systems, that distinguish it among the crowd of midsized sedans. The Camry has long held the distinction as a competent, well-rounded and pleasant family sedan. However, it gets a bad rap among critics as unexciting.

"THERE ISN'T ANY CD PLAYER. I WAS ASSURED THAT A CD PLAYER WAS INSTALLED AT FACTORY BUT I DON'T HAVE ONE AND I HAVE MANY NEW CD'S TO LISTEN TO. WHEN I PICKED UP MY CAR AT THE DEALERSHIP THEY TOLD ME NO NEW CARS ARE EQUIPPED WITH CD PLAYERS ANY MORE.

Display screen freezes up

"SO MANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS 2019 CAMRY AMONG THEM THE LAST PHONE CALL IS PERMANENTLY DISPLAYED ON THE SCREEN AND YOU CAN'T GET RID OF IT- IT FREEZES UP WHEN YOU WANT TO CALL SOMEONE AND BLUETOOTH WILL NOT WORK. ANYONE GETTING IN THE CAR WILL HAVE THEIR SMART PHONE CONTACTS DOWNLOADED TO THIS CAR WHETHER YOU WANT IT OR NOT. THEN YOU CAN'T DELETE ANYTHING. ALSO THE SCREEN KEEPS DISPLAYING DO YOU WANT TO ... SUBSCRIBE OR BUY OR SIGN UP FOR ETC. AND I HAVE TO KEEP HITTING THE ARROW BACK BUTTON TO CLOSE THE SCREEN AND THEN IT WILL NOT GO BLANK OR SHUT OFF. NO SOFTWARE UPDATES WERE ISSUED EITHER SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO CORRECT ANY OF THIS."

Joyce B., MA (2019 Toyota Camry LE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"It has happened 3 times in 10 months. I turn the car on and the main display freezes on the first screen that pop up when the car is started. The radio doesn't work. I have to stop, turn the car off and restart it and then it has been fine. I have taken it to the dealer but they could not get it to do that and so they were not able to resolve the issue."

Anonymous, IA (2019 Toyota Camry XSE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"Poor read of mp3 jump drives"

Anonymous, AL (2019 Toyota Camry LE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"I had no problem with the exact same phone in my last GM vehicle system. However, the Toyota entune 3000 system is junk and not worth anything additional. My Bluetooth speaker sounds much better and I don't have volume drop on the Bluetooth speakers but the Toyota engine 3000 has a severe drop in volume when playing music off of my smartphone."

"My last car mirrored the interface of my phone and showed messages on screen and the system was very good. The entune 3000 requires me to reset my phone and unpair and pair my phone again. It works on a spotty basis. I would have purchased an aftermarket system if I would've known the electronics stunk. A very cheap system with very low end technology."

Anonymous, GA (2019 Toyota Camry XLE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

Lee S., (2019 Toyota Camry LE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"Discovered fuel pump motor running after it had been parked for several hours. Went in the house got the car keys and started car. Hasn't happened since. Gauges and settings randomly stop working. Warning lights randomly come on and go off minutes or hours later. Tire pressure light randomly comes on and the dealer needs to reset it since it will not go off. Dealer thinks that there is a grounding problem. Will take car in and see if the problems can be solve. In winter when cold the heater blows cold air when going down hill from my house to work. Coldest vehicle I have ever owned. It is my third Camry. The other two were awesome vehicles. CR should Definitely recommend a do not buy car"

What Owners Say

Other/unsure

"Smart cruise control seems to stop operating when the car comes very near (about 10 feet?) the car on front: my car did not slow down automatically, and I had to intervene by braking. But I hesitate to conclude that this is an inherent defect of the cruise control system, because the situation described above was rare (of course I did not want to test again and again)."

Anonymous, CA (2019 Toyota Camry SE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"I am more confident to say that the Blind spot warning (right and left) of the Camry is inferior to the 2017 Subaru Outback. The problem is that the blinking warning in the side mirror appears too late so that I could make a lane change at a risky moment: I had horn blowing on me a couple of times, so I no longer count on the Camry side mirror warning when making lane change."
