High mile Camry
By Doug on
2006 Toyota Camry SE V6 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I was given this car as a company car brand new and have been pleased with the car as it has just turned over 100K. The only complaint I have is the lag when slowing down (under 30 mph) and then accelerating. It seems to get caught between gears and then lurches when the gears engage. This has happened since new and the dealer noted it is a "problem" that has not be remedied. On the other hand, my first break job was at 90K and I drive the car hard. The only unscheduled repair was a leaking power steering line at 90K ($250 repair). I cruise at 80mph and get around 26 to 27 mph (V6 remember). I love the extra power of the V6 on the interstate.
Like the styling and the 17" tires with alloy wheels on the SE. It really gives the car a sporty look. More like the Lexus 300 than the typical Camry.
Fix the lag in the transmission. It really is noticeable.
