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

Review

Minimum 23 mpg mixed fwys & surface rds in Minn. winter, to 32 mpg summer freeways 70-80 mph. I'm 6'2", head- and legroom fine, with seats low and far back. Comfortable even on 500-mile drives. Short seats no problem. Tranny hesitates when accelerating from stop or very low speed--a real problem if you're often accelerating from very low speeds to merge with fast-moving traffic. It's a real design flaw, not a question of learning a knack for handling the gas pedal. Degree of hesitation varies unpredictably, once it a while it bogs down badly for a moment. This is the one thing that would make me consider another make/model. Fine at higher speeds, though.

Favorite Features

Comfortable, well-designed, and practical. Many thoughtful and well-implemented conveniences. Easy-to-use audio system. A pleasure to drive. Reliability up to Camry's reputation. Full-size spare (I hear they changed that in '07; if true, a bad mistake).

Suggested Improvements

Fix the low-speed transmission problem! Make airbag system less threatening and intrusive. Could wish the top rear end was a little lower, but I wouldn't trade trunk space or ground clearance for it. Front too low, can scrape when you park. You'll learn to avoid this, but not a car for bad roads.
