My Toyota Camry — This car has stood us in good stead. We commute every three or four weeks from Northern Indiana to Dayton and the car has been a delight to drive. The only issues which we have is the relatively small size of the view of the back window in the rear view mirror and the fact that repairing a scrape on the rear bumper would entail major work.

Pros

Resale value, 6-disc JBL CD changer, sporty look with the rear spoiler, automatic-everything, pretty comfortable on trips.

Cons

Floaty handling (I'm a little biased to my Passat that I've had for 4 years), spongy brakes, electronic throttle paired with the 5-speed automatic transmission doesn't work well together, below-average fuel economy.

Toyota Has More Work To Do Before I'm Impressed. — I'm not really as impressed with this model as I thought I would be. '05 was the first year Toyota hooked its engine up to an electronic throttle and 5-speed automatic transmission. It just doesn't feel right. It lurches when the throttle is pressed even slightly. Since we drive in parking garages a lot, this feels pretty unsafe. It also handles pretty badly, but I attribute most of that to the crappy tires the dealer put on when we bought it. The only thing I'm really excited about is the resale value, and that it's loaded with every conceivable option that is available on the Camry (except heated seats and V6). The rear spoiler really dresses the car up; I wouldn't have bought the car if it wasn't there. Toyota did a great job working with JBL on the set up of the stereo.

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.

Pros

Dependability, slight performance, smoothness in ride and on the steering wheel

Cons

Only got about 20 MPG, and hood is easily chipped

45

Depending On The Angle, The Car Can Look Sleek — It performed pretty well using 89 Octane Gas. The hood can get chipped easily from pebbles on the freeway. Every now and then the car would jerk me if I accelerated then let off it, then applied light pressure to the pedal. Other than that, its was a pretty nice car.

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 .

Pros

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.
