I have always owned Toyotas. 76 celica 350,000, 87 Camry, and a 89 I still have at 287,000! I love my Camry. The 2005 is the first Camry in a long time I REALLY LIKE! Especially with the New Ground Effects! Makes it look so sporty! Good power too!
Looks really improved especially the Ground Effects, and the improve power in the engine! Has given the Camry a much sportier look!
They do have a BIG problem through with the hesitation of the engine as far as when you come to a stop, and then step on the Gas it DOES HESITATE! I was told it a comunication thing between the Engine & Tranmission! NOT GOOD! I was thinking the hesitation was just me! Now I see lots of others too!
Flawless engine & transmission performance. Plenty of power without sacrificing fuel economy,recent 800 mile trip= 27.6 mpg (actual miles divided by gallons, trip computer showed 28.3). Minimal wind/road noise. Outstanding driving position & visibility.Spacious and comfortable interior of high quality materials & workmanship. Flexible folding rear seats. Spacious trunk with full-size spare. Downside: p/steering is overboosted, tilt wheel has too little movement to be called a tilt wheel. Power window & door controls are not lighted at night.
Quite, powerful, efficient engine. Smooth 5 spd auto transmission. Bright, clear instruments with no glare/reflections in w/shield. Comfortable leather seating for extended trips. Traction & Vehicle Stability Control, side & rear curtain airbags. Automatic passenger airbag activation. Rear sunshade.
Tilt wheel needs more travel. Door/window control buttons should be lighted at night. Like I said "Almost Perfect"
I will highly recommend this car as it is fun to drive, powerful, and very reliable. I will personally rate it 4.8/5. Whoever plans to buy this 2005 model will see that his/her money has not gone in waste.
Luxury, Comfort, Smooth Ride, power and response and shape
Love the color sand mica, drives very nice, turns around on a dime. Seats are very comfortable, and really like the heated seat feature. I didn't care about getting the sun roof but now I like it. Hope this one lasts me a long time, thats why I bought a Toyota.
Style, comfort, color,automatic, air, leather.Love the compartment for sun glasses. The shade in rear is great.
