Great Family Car That Doesn't Take Much To Spruce Up by Murdoc

 — We bought our 2005 Camry LE used (rental car) in 2006 with 11,000 miles on the odometer. We had previously owned a 1994 3.0 V6 Camry, hence I had concerns that the 2.4L would be a disappointment. My c... Read More

2005 Toyota Camry

The 2005 Toyota Camry is largely unchanged from 2002, when it was completely redesigned, but it does have a few new touches. The 2005 Camry got a new grille, headlamps and taillights to bring it into fashion with cars of the time. In addition, all trim levels are available with anti-lock breaks.

The 2005 Toyota Camry comes in four trim levels. The base model offers amenities such as cruise control, power windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo. The LE adds an upgraded interior, keyless entry and 15-inch aluminum wheels. The SE, which is the sportiest of the bunch, comes with higher rate springs and shocks, anti-roll bars and 16-inch wheels. The XLE is the most luxurious model, coming equipped with features such as power seats, a six-disc in-dash CD changer and wood-grain interior. The 2005 Camry comes standard with a 160 horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and manual transmission, although a more powerful engine option is available in the LE, SE and XLE models, and all can be upgraded to an automatic transmission.

Like its predecessors, the 2005 Toyota Camry is highly regarded for its reliability and no-nonsense, straightforward appeal. Drivers also rate it highly for its smooth handling and good gas mileage, which is about 24 city/34 highway. Some owners have complained about its lack of pickup, but the Camry is not meant for drivers looking for a racecar. Another complaint is that visibility out the rear window is limited.
