2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

So i bought my 2005 Camry SE v6

I see complaints about handling but noticed all complaints are on the cheapest model camrys LE's base 4cyl

Mine handles like a champ (sway bars bigger rims/wider tires on the SE)

120,000 miles not a single issue other than my sunroof is touchy.

Gas milage is unbelievable for a good size sedan 34 hwy

I live in mohave county Az average temp in summer near 120, paint is still nearly perfect no fade.

Trunk space would make al capone blush, I could hide 10 bodies in there.

225hp is just right, my altima SER was overboard and caused wheel spin 285hp,
Plus tires were a yearly issue on the altima.

Build quality... It ain't no BMW but its better than average.

Great car overall, not fancy but still classy.

Review

I just hit 100,000 miles this week and this car has given me the most trouble free 100,000 of any vehicle I have owned in 30+ year of driving. not the most exciting car I've owned but highly recommend one if you are looking for a used car.


Best Features

Gets great gas mileage for size of the vehicle.


Worst Features

Interior materials a little cheap.

2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great car... I have put mostly highway miles on mine and am still on the original brakes after almost 5 years and 63000 miles. My only gripe is the paint/finish. I opted for a dealer- applied 5-yr super simonize wax and even with that, I still have deep chips and scratches. From driving on the hwy, I would've expected minor scratches on the hood from rocks, but these are like gouges. Other than that, this car has been amazing. I'll definitely purchase another Toyota as soon as I get 200000-250000 miles on this one.


Best Features

Reliability, 5000-mile recommended oil changes


Worst Features

PAINT/FINISH

2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's a very reliable car. Low maintenance. However, when I need a sudden burst to accelerate on the freeway, it almost redlines going from 55mph to 65mph.


Best Features

I like that the driver's side seat has many adjustment options. The center console is also very handy. Great place to charge your phone or leave personal items out of plain view.


Worst Features

Improve the transmission.

2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Our Camry has been flawless in the two years we've owned it. We have consistently gotten over 33 mpg and it handled two New Hampshire winters without a hitch. It's fun to drive, has decent pickup, and is comfortable to ride in for long trips. My wife and I have driven a number of other midsized rental cars on vacations and not once have we found a better vehicle for our needs.


Best Features

Large trunk, standard transmission, great "brights" on headlights, and excellent air conditioning/heating system. Also great gas mileage for a decent sized vehicle and the turning radius is unmatched.


Worst Features

Front seats could be a bit deeper and backend rises which makes backing up difficult in some situations.
