The Camry is one of the most popular Toyota models out there.
If you’re looking to buy a used midsize sedan, the XV50 generation
equipped with the reliable and efficient 178-hp four-cylinder
deserves serious consideration. However, even a used Toyota is not
bulletproof, so here are a few things you should check before sealing the deal.
Introduced in 2011, the XV50 (seventh-gen in the U.S.) Camry
received many upgrades over the previous generation.
The exterior is not fundamentally changed, although there
are some clearly noticeable differences. Most major changes are
related to the interior, which was completely redesigned.
This Camry received a facelift in 2014 for the 2015 model year,
updating most of the exterior panels and making the car look
much more modern.
So, why should you buy one? Well, it’s almost twice as cheap as a new,
current-generation model, it has a spacious interior, it handles great,
and it’s fitted with a reliable and fuel-efficient 2.5-liter 2AR-FE four-cylinder.
However, depending on how the previous owner (or owners) used and
maintained the car, several issues can occur with this engine.
Early models built in 2011 and 2012 had some issues with timing gears, resulting in some annoying rattle noises for about five seconds on cold startups. These noises are an indication that those components are about to fail, and you should keep in mind that this is a medium-cost repair.
Checking this might prove difficult, but you can ask the owner to meet in the morning while the engine is cold to see if these noises occur.
If he or she refuses, it should raise some questions, but if no other issues occur and you like the car, you should ask the mechanic to thoroughly check the timing gears when you take it for a pre-purchase inspection.
Another component that might be responsible for an annoyingly loud squealing noise is the drive belt tensioner pulley. It can be heard at all times when the engine is running, and it tends to increase in intensity at higher RPMs. It is not a serious issue and won’t be that expensive to fix but it’s one you should pay attention to.
