This my my fourth Toyota and I am sad to say thats it has been a bit disappointing. The car comfort, looks, performance and fuel economy are great but the paint is a disaster. As I was washing my car to remove the bugs at the pressure washer that I have always used when I began to see my bumper paint washing away like it was chalk. I then started looking at other new Camrys to realize that most are missing paint chunks on their bumpers. The dealership tried to patch paint my bumper which made it look like someone spray painted it with a spray paint can from Walmart. Factory window tint was peeling off a week after buy etc. Too many issues.
Power, fuel economy, looks and comfort.
PAINT!! The paint on this car is the worse that I have seen on any car. Peeling off a month after buying is absolutely substandard and deserves a recall!
I purchased my 2007 Camry SE in July of 2006. I've had this car for almost a year now and would like to report my experiences. The car has 11,000 miles and it has been flawless. No transmission flares, hesitations, rattles or any other problems. The car still drives like the first day I bought it. It is very smooth, powerful, refined, quiet and solidly built. The gas mileage has been getting better. I first averaged 23 mpg during the break in period, but ever since then the mileage have increased slowly. I'm now past the 10,000 mile mark and averaging low 26 miles to the gallon. Overall, I am a very satisfied owner and I'm planning to keep this car for many years to come.
Hands free Bluetooth works well and amazes many of the passengers. Refined motor and quiet interior. Auxiliary jack and 450 watt JBL sounds great. Light blue/turquoise interior lighting. Supportive and comfortable seats. Storage compartments. Quality soft-touch materials.
Little more headroom would be appreciated. The standard halogen headlamps aren't that great. Less hard plastic on the doors and some areas of the dashboard. Push start button should be available on the SE models. Make the silver interior trim more durable so that it doesn't scratch or chip as easily
The missus and I really fell in love with the new styling. We have now owned for 9 mo, a very competent performer indeed. The gauge cluster is a big hit with the different modes at the touch of a button and the sound system is awesome. Plenty of room abounds in the back seat for the adults and the reclining seats are a nice touch on the long trips. Driving is quiet and refined for a 4 cyl.,handling is good as well.The factory choice of tires could be better, they are not long lasting tread, they will need to be replaced before 25K miles. At 65-70 we can average 32-34 mpg - 27 overall mpg. If we were not so tight we should have gotten the V6. We wouldn't hesitate buying another.
Hands free parking brake, handsfree phone, reclining rear seats with foot room to boot! Fraichair fabric is as good as leather, 3 tier gauge cluster. And it has standard daytime running lights & automatic lights.
Independent dimmer control for the gauge cluster and center cluster (quite bright at night). Standard offering of bodyside mouldings. LED taillights. Better wearing tires. The cruise control is NOT hill friendly.
I grew up driving Fords, my whole family works at Ford. I decided to buy the 07 Camry and I love everything about it. For a 4cyl engine this car can move. When you need the power the car and provide it. I have read some of the reviews saying that it doesn't have power this is not true.
Have put 24,000 miles in 1 year. The engine whines annoyingly on acceleration, front cupholder lid rattles when open. Right rear door rattles inside most of the time. Front seats are not comfortable on long trip. Radio lights are too bright at night. Highway mileage is 29, which I consider poor for a 4-cylinder. My '06 Avalon did as well with a V6.
Exterior styling, trunk space with folding rear seat backs.
