2005 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I have had this 2005 Toyota Camry XLE V6 for two months now. I am surprised how disappointed I am with the driving experience of the Camry. I had a 1997 Buick LeSabre with a 3.8L V6 engine that got better gas mileage than this car, and it was about 500 lbs HEAVIER. This 3.0L is should get better gas mileage than it does (for me 15 city, 23 hwy). My Buick glided on the road, more bumps with the Camry. And the transmission is the worst. It hesitates going between 20 to 70 mpg. Not good for city traffic. I can hear the wind and outside noises much more than the Buick. I am trying to trade-in for an American car this time, at least for a better performing V6 engine.

Favorite Features

6-CD changer, heated seats, steering capacity (more agile), fog lights make it more sportier looking.

Suggested Improvements

bigger V6 engine, quit the current smart transmission, reduce road noise, improve gas mileage on V6 engines (American cars have), two different buttons for tilt/sunroof, FIX THE TRANSMISSION AND ENGINE
