2010 Toyota Camry Overview

Is the 2010 Toyota Camry a Good Used Car?

The 2010 Toyota Camry is a good used midsize car. It has a comfortable ride, respectable power from its base engine, and a strong available V6 engine. It features a spacious cabin and a good amount of storage space. Still, thrill seekers should bypass the Camry because of its dull handling, and some shoppers may wish for better build quality.

How Much Does the 2010 Toyota Camry Cost to Own?

Estimated five-year costs for fuel, insurance, maintenance, and repairs for the 2010 Toyota Camry are about $23,350. That’s roughly $4,670 per year. These estimates are lower for several rivals.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Camry?

The fully redesigned 2018 Toyota Camry (MSRP: $23,645) costs a lot more than the 2010 Camry, but you get quite a bit for that higher price. Enhancements include a host of standard technology and safety features like a pre-collision warning system and adaptive cruise control. The performance is also stronger with more than 30 extra horsepower in the base four-cylinder and available V6 engines, better handing dynamics, and higher fuel economy. If these improvements aren't worth the extra money to you, stick with the less expensive 2010 Camry.

Which Model Year of the Toyota Camry Is Best?

The 2010 Toyota Camry is part of a generation that debuted for the 2007 model year. The 2008 Camry dropped the CE name from the base model, but there are no significant changes for 2008 and 2009. However, the 2010 Camry had quite a few changes. It received a more powerful and fuel-efficient 2.5-liter base engine, refreshed exterior styling, an optional audio system for base and LE models, and standard electronic stability control. Toyota also replaced the five-speed manual and automatic transmissions with six-speed versions. If you're willing to foot the bill, we recommend the 2010 Camry over older used models.

2010 Toyota Camry Recalls

There are five safety recalls for the 2010 Toyota Camry, covering a variety of issues. One addresses the electrical wiring on models with aftermarket seat heaters, which might be damaged if the seat cushion is compressed. Another recall affects some models that may have inaccurate load carrying capacity labels. Also, the front passenger seat occupant-sensing system may not be properly calibrated, which could prevent the front passenger air bags from deploying correctly or at all. There is one recall that affects some four-cylinder models that may have a brake tube perforation that could result in brake fluid leakage. Lastly, a more well-known recall involves an issue with the accelerator pedal. It may be hard to press, slow to depress, get stuck in a pressed position, or trapped in the floor mat. Make sure a Toyota dealer has addressed these recalls before purchasing a 2010 Camry.

Which Used Toyota Camry Is Right for Me?

The 2010 Toyota Camry comes in four main trims: base, LE, SE, and XLE. The base Camry doesn't come with a ton of features, but it should be sufficient enough for most drivers. Standard features include a six-speaker audio system, two auxiliary ports, satellite radio, cloth seats, manually adjustable front seats, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and daytime running lights. The LE trim isn't worth the extra expense as it only adds keyless entry and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat. The SE trim is a good option if you're looking for updated interior and exterior styling, a sporty suspension system, and aluminum alloy wheels.

The top-tier XLE trim costs the most, but you get most technology, comfort, and convenience features offered. These include dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and Bluetooth. Make sure your devices can connect to the Bluetooth system before buying, since standards have changed over the years.

2010 Toyota Camry Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2010 Toyota Camry or 2010 Toyota Corolla?

Both the 2010 Toyota Corolla and the Camry are geared towards shoppers looking for a comfortable ride and smooth engines. The Corolla touts better fuel economy estimates and lower ownership costs, but the Camry has more passenger and cargo space. Choosing between the two ultimately comes down to your needs and personal preferences.

Which Is Better: 2010 Toyota Camry or 2010 Mazda6?

The 2010 Mazda6 is a great alternative to the Camry for those seeking a more athletic car. Not only is the Mazda fun to drive around twists and turns, but it also has sporty styling and a larger trunk than the Toyota. That said, the Camry is a little more fuel efficient, and it has lower ownership costs. These two are neck and neck in our rankings, so you can't go wrong with either option.

2010 Camry Performance

How Does the 2010 Toyota Camry Drive?

If you're looking for a comfortable ride, the 2010 Toyota Camry delivers. However, those longing for engaging performance will be disappointed with the Camry's bland handling.

A 169-horsepower four-cylinder engine powers the Camry, which has decent acceleration for most shoppers. Those wishing for more power should look for a model with an available 268-horsepower V6 engine, which is one of the strongest engines among midsize sedans.

Both the standard six-speed manual transmission and the available six-speed automatic transmission pair well with the base engine. The V6 comes standard with the automatic transmission. All models come with front-wheel drive.

Does the 2010 Toyota Camry Get Good Gas Mileage?

The base 2010 Toyota Camry delivers 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, which is about average in the class. The highway rating drops 1 mpg with an automatic transmission. Opting for the available V6 engine will knock fuel economy down to 19/28 mpg city/highway.
