2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I have been a honda owner for 20 years but purchased this Camry new in 2004 due to price, features and Toyota's reputation with manufacturing quality automobiles. I have not been disappointed. This is an excellent car. It handles well in all types of weather. It is comfortable and reliable. I didn't expect to have to do anything to this car other than other than routine maintenance and oil changes and it has not let me down. The only thing I would change if I could buy the option to apply clear coat paint protection when new. My car is deep blue and as always, people love to bang their doors into a new looking car, creating door dings that the door guard doesn't always catch.
Sturdy build, reliability, beautiful paint, good gas mileage. I have driven this in some severe weather and it always handles beautifully.
Offer standard transmission to increase gas mileage (I love driving a standard). Make the snow guard more durable (I accidentally hit a raccoon at night and it ripped the guard),
