She Keeps Me Happy! — Have not found anything to dislike. Has big trunk area. If need to she can put the backseat back down and then accommodate long loads.i had been living away on an island in the Caribbean and when I moved back to the real world I needed a car. Looked and looked and read about a lot of different cars....but when I got in "Gypsy" to drive...I never looked at any others! I felt safe and comfy both. Before this winter started I went in to have the battery checked to be sure I didn't need to worry in cold weather. The young man opened the hood and gasped and jumped back...I asked what was the matter and he stammered "that is the original battery" ....I said"right" He called everyone to look.....I got a new battery but the old one never gave any trouble in those 10 years she had been serving me!

Reliable Family Car, Not For Fun Driving. — I had this care for 9 years. It's a pretty steady family car, for routine driving, but I sold it because I was looking for something with more excitement. Fuel economy was not as good as I would have expected, ~ 20 mph combined. Likely because it's a V6.

Reliable Family/commuter Car — I loved this car for the reliability and comfort and good gas mileage. If somebody needed a great car to get from point A to point B, this would be my first choice! Overall, a great, practical car that is perfect for families too.

Pros

Extremely reliable, Great gas mileage, safe, spacious

Cons

Hard to think of any...I wish I could get a new Hybrid Camry but the price is a bit much.  I'll hang on to my Camry and drive it into the ground!

My Camry Is The Best! — My Toyota Camry has been the BEST CAR that I have ever owned! It is always reliable, has not caused any problems for me and is fun to drive. I bought it brand-new in May 2004 and have put 87K miles on it in the last 4 years (my commute is 80 miles each day to work round-trip). I would completely recommend the Camry!

A Pearl Of A Car — I bought this car recently used from the original owner. So far it has been an excellent car, except for the interior room, which is somewhat cramped for a 6-foot driver like myself. Brakes well (stops on a dime).

Efficient And Comfortable, The 2004 Camry Is Great For In-town Errands And Long-distance Travel. — Odd as it may seem, our 2004 Camry LXE is our luxury car. After years of driving gently-used hand-me-downs (our other car is a 1995 Camry LE), we bought this one new, and have loved it ever since. With regular maintenance, it still feels and looks like new, except for a small dent in the rear fender. Apropos, does anyone make touch-up paint that actually matches a car’s original paint? The front seats are comfortable and adjustable to support the back; the back seat has plenty of room for two [grand] children’s booster seats and their mom sitting between them, and they can adjust the temperature back there. The trunk is terrific – room for just about anything, especially with the fold-down back seats, which accommodate extra-long items. The optional net that stretches side to side in the trunk to hold packages upright seemed like an indulgence when we bought the car, but it’s been very useful, and we miss it when we’re using the older car. Improvements over the 1995 Camry include electronic seat and side-view mirror controls, electronic entry, a better set-up for between-seat storage of miscellaneous items, and cup holders that can still be used when the shift lever is forward, in park. [What were they thinking when they designed the earlier model??] Luck-of-the-draw: Neither one of our Camrys has been included in the recent recalls for floor pads or runaway acceleration. The 2004 Camry is our road-trip car, for comfort, dependability, and mileage. Otherwise, it’s used in-city, for errands. The only drawback that we’ve found (and have had to adjust our driving to) is that despite good tires, traction when there’s rain, snow, or ice is not always reliable. In slippery conditions, we have to leave plenty of room to stop, and we’ve learned not to accelerate quickly from a full stop.

04 Camry. Get One! — I love my Camry. I got it with 22K miles on it, it now has 105K miles, and I've never had to take it to the shop for more than brakes, oil, ect. It's a fun car to drive, it runs smooth, and tires wear great. Premium gas gives it GREAT acceleration, and the gas mileage is awesome for a midsize sedan in 04.

Pros

Function, Reliability (so far), Better sportiness than other trims

Cons

Boring/more exciting options out there

Overall Pretty Good, Not Overly Exciting Though — Good car. Only given me minor problems, which is great considering its got close to 100k miles. Performace is so so, the se trim actually does tighten the suspension and make it more fun to drive than other trims. But it is a camry and is in essence a boring car. Again, if your going to buy a camry, definitely get the SE trim, it does add a lot.
