Great Family Car That Doesn't Take Much To Spruce Up — I've owned many cars but this was my first brand new car and it has not disappointed. I bought it with only 20 miles on the dash. I like the older style Camry body with the square backs. The new rounder ones don't appeal to me as much. The ride is comfortable and I didn't notice any change in ride when I upgraded the tire size from 15" to 18" Although I did notice an increase in road noise. Never had any major issues with this car other than routine wear and tear (oil/tire changes) which is awesome. The interior is very spacious but not cavernous. I don't have any fancy bells and whistles like the other trims this car comes in but I do have power windows and locks and steering wheel audio controls which is nice. Driving is a blast with the manual transmission. I get a little more pickup when I let the RPM's go up a little and I save a bunch on brake pads through downshifting. Car handles really well with a wide base, even on tight corners although I feel like the back end is going to go, it stays put to the ground. I get really good gas mileage for the age of the car, nothing compared to what the newer cars are pushing out now with the hybrids and flex fuel cars but good enough. I like that its a manual transmission, which is rare to find in the US for this model vehicle. This particular car was manufactured in Japan and shipped over. The quality of the construction from the parts used to the paint is outstanding. I have 135K on it and hope that it lasts me a whole lot more!! I upgraded the lights with an aftermarket HID kit and new headlights that have the BMW style HALO'S. Will upload picture of that soon.

2 — After owning the 2002 Camry I went to look at the 2007 Camry LE 4 cylinder. When test driving I immediately noticed the cheaper interior. It looked nice but was definitely a step back as compared to the previous version. Then I went to drive the car. I did not like the hesitation the transmission had. Almost scary when trying to merge onto a busy roadway. Given this issue I went for a used 2005 LE with leather pkg. I love this car. Slight refresh of the 2002 Camry. Gains a 5 speed tranny along with some other minor upgrades. The car is super comfortable and very reliable. Currently have 160,000 miles on the car. The only thong I've replaced is a battery and tires. The engine is still quiet as ever .

OK car - nothing exciting about it.

Cons

I have only used this car to get back and forth to work - and bought it brand new from the dealer. Last week out of the blue the transmission went out. WATCH out.  I thought Toyotas were supposed to be dependable.

Disappointed — It's been OK - until this. It's just a car - if you are looking at a 2005 Camry do your homework and make sure you get the paperwork on what's been done. I thought it was dependable. It's also a bit big and clunky. Handling is not the best.

2005 Toyota Camry — I have really enjoyed my Toyota Camry. I've driven it everywhere and loaded it down with a lot of stuff. It has held up very well and been extremely reliable for me. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a mid-sized family sedan.

You'll Never Love It Till You've Owned One — Best car ever the design is sublime. From the blacked out sport grill to the flared wheel arches and modelista rocker panels . I added a TRD supercharger and intake made the car accelerate like a dream. Awesome build quality it's better than the 2010 camry thats for sure
