2004 Toyota Camry Sedan LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

bought it new for Xmas back in 03, couldn't resist the 0% APR offered by Toyota Financing. Anyway it'll be close to 10 years since then and I've driven it almost all over the PST/MST zones. City economy is never higher than 24, freeway cruising between 75-80 nets 29 and back-road cruising between 45-55 nets a high of 36. Yep 36 but I rarely drive that slow for that long so that almost never happens. I keep up with all the scheduled maintenance as a rule, change the oil every 3-4k miles and it just keeps on trucking. 200 lbs/ft tq is enough to carry a family of 5 from the coast to the peaks with a trunk full of luggage. And food. And a cooler too. I almost bought another 04 once, haha


Favorite Features

ride quality base stereo front AND rear legroom


Suggested Improvements

handles like a boat & turns like a cruise-ship, definitely not built for the twisties

2004 Toyota Camry Sedan LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Although the height of the interior is fairly short, the car provides an excellent amount of leg room. The dashboard is equipped with the standard settings with the max speed reaching to 110mph. To the right of the dashboard lies the music system, which includes CDs, cassettes, and radio, and beneath the music system is the heating and cooling controls. Being a car with auto transmission, the car is installed with an automatic-stick just to the right of the driver. Along with the automatic stick shift is the hill parking handle, and two cup holders for whatever drinks that the driver may have. Between the backrests of the passenger and driver seat is a small compartment to store misc. items.


Favorite Features

Interior design is fairly comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

No serious factor that needs improvement.

2004 Toyota Camry Sedan LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The V6 Camry is a wonderful car to drive. I have driven it for nearly 4 years and am very satisfied. Fuel economy is decent, cannot complain. I gave performance a 5 because of the delay when the gas is pressed a bit much, but sometimes noticeable even with calm acceleration (somewhat annoys me).


Favorite Features

Smooth compliant ride on the freeway.


Suggested Improvements

Too much body roll. V6 engine has a delay when gas is fully pressed. Lack of foglight option for LE model.

Review

I bought this car brand new in 2004 and drove about 45000 miles so far. No problem. Excellent in driving. Only drawback would be gas consumption compared to hybrids. If you are not planning to buy a new hybrid, this would be a excellent choice. Peace of mind.

2004 Toyota Camry Sedan LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased a 2004 LE V6 Camry used. Already have a 2001 LE V6. '04 model has a different body style that is vastly quieter and somewhat larger. The 04 was the first year for the 5 sp auto on the V6 and improves mileage on trips and decreases noise at high speeds, but the transmission shifting is much worse (and erratic) in the city than my 01. All TSBs have been applied. Dealer indicates it is operating as designed. Transmission also now requires Toyota fluid (vs Dextron 3 for 01). Ride seems somewhat smoother, but this is less noticable than the improvement in cabin noise. Rear doors are longer, making exit/entry more difficult. Trunk went from large to absolutely huge.


Suggested Improvements

Haven't tried an 05 or 06. I suspect the transmission shifting issues have been improved in later years.
