2003 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

We bought this car because of its reliability reputation. We bought it new. We just turned 100K miles and have had no major problems. New battery at 3 yrs. New brakes and tires at about 86K miles. Thats it. We still get just over 30 mpg on the highway with one passenger, full trunk and A/C on. The front seats could be more comfortable and we really don't like the throttle-by-wire system. The excessive lag can be dangerous if you are not planning for it. Also, the five speed trans sometimes hunts between 1-2-3 resulting in a sudden downshift with a clunk or an up shift and surge. The readouts for the radio and temp controls are hard to read in sunlight.

Favorite Features

Reliability. Gas mileage. Good back seat and trunk room. Split fold-down rear seat is also handy.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the throttle-by-wire system. Make the seats, especially front, more comfortable. Fix the 5 speed trans' hunting problem. Use a different display for the radio and temp controls to make them more readable.
