Okay - if you want a true sports suspension with Volvo, BMW, Saab-like Euro styling and you insist on five star safety features, then go get the completely redesigned Camry SE w/ 5 speed manual trans. This car is more fun to drive than I could have imagined - quick, nimble, amazing handling, good solid power for a four cylinder that you control with the 5m... truly fantastic gas mileage. You will love it but you need to be the type of sports car enthusiasist who loves the control of a 5 speed stick. I was set on a Civic Si or maybe Accord before coming across the 2007 Camry SE... my very good luck I did. Racing bike fits in trunk!
Euro styling, Titanium Silver, sports suspension and performance of this 5 speed manual (it is fast!), charcoal cloth sports seats, power driver's seat, avg 28 MPG, Toyota quality is tops. Amazing value..
Ordered the LE V6 Feb. 15th and delivery was April 15th. Read a lot of negative reviews so I wasn’t sure what I was getting! Very sharp appearance and the drive is excellent! The 6 speed will take getting used to but is very sure and smooth once you are used to it. Gas mileage now is in the high 20s and that should improve with time. The handling is a little too soft in some situations but is very sure on good roads. Sound system is excellent and interior was adequate but the room is awesome! Would buy it again and recommend it.
Powerful 268 hp engine and soft ride, but most of all the looks!
Interior colors should be more aggressive instead of tan and slate gray!
I bought my 2007 Camry LE about 1 year ago, and put 23,000 miles on it. I loved every minute of driving this car! I have had no transmission issues or rattling, the comfort and ride of this vehicle felt to me much more high end then what I had paid. I loved the car so much that I traded it in already to buy the SE 2.4 liter version of the car, and boy I love this car even more! The interior feels that of a Lexus or BMW and the exterior is an eye catcher. I have owned it for a week and have already been complimented on the car a half dozen times on its looks.
Leather interior, heated seats, the upgrade JBL stereo is phenomenal, quiet ride, comfort, moon roof, handling, dash lights, exterior looks awesome - much more expensive looking then it costs, gas mileage. I really love everything about this car!!
Having driven Honda and Nissan for many years, would like to feel the difference of Toyota. Bought brand new Camry two months ago and put 1000 miles on it. It drives quiet and smooth. Since I didn't drive in traffic often, I didn't feel the hesitation in acceleration. However, the brakes are very soft and unresponsive. I've got to depress brake pedal very hard each time to slow it down. The braking distance driving a Camry is a lot longer than driving Honda and Nissan. Returned it to dealer for check and the answer was "normal". Average local MPG: 25-28
Dynamic exterior design; large interior space; drive quiet.
Unresponsive brake; uncomfortable driver's seat; limited view angle due to seat position and wide frames; cup holders too shallow.
We purchased our first Toyota product, an '07 Camry LE AT in October 2006, after months of consideration and test driving them as rental cars (averaging 30 mpg all around and 34 highway); it replaced a 1989 2WD V6 Nissan Pathfinder that averaged 21.5 mpg. What happened?! With 4000 miles, it's been a disappointment, 24 mpg (mostly hi-way) and only 400 miles/tank! Each tank gets progressively fewer mpg. It seems to be a non-issue for Toyota who dismisses the complaint and makes excuses for winter driving, gas additives, etc. We expected much more from this car and are somewhat soured on Toyota already.
Telescoping steering column, security and other controls on the electronic key eliminate need for separate device.
1) Improve visibility on front right windshield - a definite blind spot area where the frame is; 2) Put a hinge on the side mirrors for tight fits so you can flip them in to protect them - this was standard on the Pathfinder back in 1989! 3) Improve sound quality of base stereo system.
