2004 Toyota Camry Overview

The Toyota Camry was completely redesigned in 2002, so not much changed for the 2004 model of this consistent best-seller. It still maintains the Camry's signature conservative styling, comfortable interior, easy and accessible controls and solid reputation for reliability. Like the Camrys that came before it, the 2005 Toyota Camry is a car for people who don't want a lot of bells and whistles but who are looking for features and quality beyond an entry-level car.

The 2004 Toyota Camry comes in the LE, SE and XLE trim levels. Though the LE is the base model, it still comes nicely equipped, including power windows, mirrors and locks with remote keyless entry. The SE comes with the expected sporty features, such as higher-rated shocks, bigger wheels and higher-effort steering. It also comes standard with a moon roof. The XLE is the luxury model, coming equipped with automatic temperature control, power seats and a six-disc in-dash CD player. The XLE has been compared to the Lexus ES. All three trims come standard with a four-cylinder engine and are available with a v6 engine. New for 2004 is the optional 3.3 L (as opposed to 3.0) v6 engine in the SE. The 2004 Toyota Camry gets about 20 city/30 highway mpg, depending on the engine.

Drivers love the 2004 Toyota Camry because it is a good solid car, with a comfortable interior, smooth ride and little time spent in the shop. One of the biggest complaints about the 2004 Toyota Camry is that it looks boring and drives boring. Another more noteworthy complaint from some is that the brakes are mushy without ABS.
