    Default How much weight can my Toyota Camry carry?

    97 Camry LE 4 cyl.
    I need to pick up some concrete pavers that are 2"x8"x16" & weigh 17 pounds
    each.
    I need 36 & the total weight will be 612 pounds.
    Can I put these in the trunk safely ?

    I dought it but stop loading when it sags, put some on the passenger
    floor, seat, and rear seat, I overloaded mine and broke a spring when
    hitting a bump.

    The 4-cyls have really cheap rear springs, maybe the fronts too. You
    read reports of them sagging to easily. So take it easy while
    loading. Maybe make two-three trips if not too much trouble.

    Try loading more than, say 200 pounds in the trunk with MORE than 2 adults
    in the car.

    That's the trouble with these new fangled cars. In the old days you
    had no problem putting 2-3 bodies and a full size carpet in the
    average American boat, err car.
