Exterior

The Toyota Camry 2003 was definitely revised and it’s not hard to tell that it’s a Toyota model, since it carries the outlook. What’s been changed however, are the taillights, the front bumper, the grille, the rear deck and the wheels. The front fascia has a better looking appearance. That’s thanks to the stylish manner in which it cuts through to the grille. The pronounced wheel arches are also a delight to notice. It also comes with heated side mirrors, fog lights, Halogen headlamps and tilted glass sunroof.

Safety & Technology

The Camry inhabits a Vehicle Skid Control system that knows just how to urgently direct the throttle and braking in a time of emergency. Power locks, remote keyless entry, first-rate springs, anti-roll bars, shocks, anti-lock brakes, brake assist, side impact and curtain airbags, electronic brake distribution etc. are all in place. That informs how safe the vehicle actually is.

Other high-tech options it hosts within it are power mirrors, power windows, automatic air conditioning, visor vanity mirrors, a premium leather-laced steering wheel, larger, attractive wheels; power driver seats, cushy passenger 60/40 split seats, an alarm system, a back window-sunshade, cargo net, six-disc CD changer, a JBL audio system, power pedals, and tons of mind-blowing lots.

Engine & Performance

The Toyota Camry is produced in three trim levels: the LE, the XLE and the SE models and all models come in the sedan body style. Each one is available with two choice engines: the four-cylinder and the V6. The four-cylinder engine is rated at a 2.4 liter, 16-valve twin-overhead-cam unit, at a 157 horsepower at 5600 rpm. The 3.0 liter V6 engine, on the other hand generates a maximum of 192 horsepower at 5,800 rpm. Both come along with an automatic transmission. The LE model accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 9.5 seconds, which is a handsome number considering what its competition offer. Toyota vehicles always deliver considerably good fuel economy and that is the case with the 2003 Camry. The LE trim offers fuel economy rating of 23 mpg city and 33 mpg for highway travel using its 5 speed manual transmission. The 3.0 liter V6 XLE model delivers a slightly lower fuel economy rating, settling at 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway travel.

The Toyota’s driving impression is one that is really cool. Its engine is quiet, not releasing any unpleasant noise. Another very cool stuff about this 2003 Camry is its ability to predict when it is approaching a hilly road. That way, it’s able to pre-empt any problems by shifting gears.

Thanks to its precise and well-tuned suspension system, you can trust that your ride will be just pleasant. The steering is well designed, making it not soft hard or neither too easy to turn. The keep word here is “Balance”. Its braking system is superb, taking care of emergency situations where the vehicle must be stable on seemingly difficult roads.

2. Why you should buy a Toyota Camry

There are a couple of good reasons why we agree that you should buy a Toyota Camry above every other car. Some of the major reasons include:

2.1 Reliability

A Toyota Camry is a highly reliable car any time ad any day. All things being equal and aside routine maintenance for Toyota Camry, rarely will you have reasons to go to a mechanic.

2.2 Strong engine

Toyota Camry engines are generally strong. Most Camry models are fitted with either 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder powerful engines.

Camry is a sedan that pushes the limits of other mid-size sedans of similar size. For instance, the 2010 Toyota Camry LE  is equipped with a powerful 2.5L 4-cylinder engine capable of reeling out 169 hp at 6000rpm and can go 0 -60 mph in approximately 8.1 seconds.

2.3 Fuel economy

Beside its close family contender, Toyota Corolla, the Toyota Camry is the second most fuel efficient vehicle in the Toyota line up. The impressive fuel economy of the Toyota Camry is not too far-fetched.  In the older models ranging from 1996 – 2001, a pair of standard engine and transmission system was matched to achieve the fuel efficiency these models boast of.

In the more recent models, more advanced technologies such as variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and in some models Valvematic technology  (VALVEMATIC) both of which helps the engine use up just the amount of fuel required to power the engine and achieve a market friendly fuel economy.

A 1999 Toyota Camry has an EPA rating of 17 mpg for city driving and 25 mpg for highway driving. On the other hand a 2017 Toyota Camry non-hybrid with VALVEMATIC has an EPA rating of 24 mpg for city driving and 33 mpg for highway driving. Its hybrid option boasts of even better fuel economy.

2.4 Safety features

One of the basic requirements to consider when buying a car is the safety rating of such car. The Toyota Camry have been rated a safe car. Meanwhile, Toyota Camry come fitted with quite impressive safety features such as ABS, 3-point seatbelts, head and side mounted airbags and lane departure warning, park assist, vehicle stability control (VSC) and Whiplash-Injury-Lessening (WIL) seats in newer models.

3.0 Common problems of Toyota Camry

Just like every other car, a number of common problems have been reported by consumers about some models of the Toyota Camry which calls its reliability reputation into questioning.

There have been complaints by consumers that Toyota Camry is lacking in cargo space for a mid-size sedan of its class.

Among more serious complaints that have been reported about the Toyota Camry are:

1. Excessive oil consumption in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 models that are yet to clock 50,000 miles have been reported by consumers.

2. Power steering pump and hose leaks have been reported in mostly the V6 engine variant. You should look out for this fault especially when buying a used Camry. Its repair can be quite tricky as finding the leak could be a piece of work for most mechanics and can cost you a lot before finally being resolved.

3. Transmission hesitation has also been reported about the Toyota Camry. It is not uncommon to feel the automatic transmission lag upon acceleration especially in Camrys with high mileages on them. This problem is mostly due to a worn out transmission parts. The fix is to replace affected transmission parts and also update the computer software.

4. Conclusion

In conclusion, it is nearly impossible for a Toyota Camry not to meet the expectations of any buyer out there. Toyota Camry models are mostly safe, reliable and durable. To wrap up this article on Toyota Camry prices in Nigeria, Camry is mostly a relatively affordable car. Although its price largely depends on the model you desire and the condition if you are buying a used one.

The Sports Edition (SE) trim of the Toyota Camry comes with a rather stiff suspension and other performance-based improvements such as an extra power advantage. While the base, LE, and XLE trims produce 169 hp, the SE reels out an impressive 179 hp that helps it achieve its predestined sportiness.

5. Conclusion
