2004 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We've had the 4cyl Camry LE for over 2 years. Great car, but a little bland. Ride is floaty, comfortable, and handles reasonably well considering. Interior too light colored to keep clean. Small squeaks under close scrutiny. Brakes without ABS, OK. Opt for ABS for better brake feel and stopping distance. Acceleration light, but buzzy at times. Some interior materials get scratched as do the hubcaps against the curb. Steering is light, but very precise. Stock radio provides good bass. Overall, great car, 9/10. QUIETER than the Accord at highway speeds meaning less fatigue. Reliable. Would purchase again, but with side airbags. If purchasing, go with the alloys and side airbags.
Automatic Locks, clear gauges, smooth, quiet ride, attention to detail in materials. Relatively roomy backseat.
Darker interior colors (I think the've gotten to this in later models), plastic wheels that don't stick out far enough to scratch on the curb. Standard side curtain and seat mounted airbags. Standard immobilizer system.
