2008 Toyota Camry Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I have had several other import cars in the past mostly Honda's. This was my first Toyota. I am sure glad I went to the dealer to look. I went in and they had the car pulled up. The car was warm inside and it was like the seat just grabbed on to me. It could adjust several different ways and with the telescoping wheel it felt perfect. We took it around the block and it handle like it was a sports car. I could not believe how quiet it was compared to my other cars I have had in the past. The white outside with the dark leather set it off just right. I have had the car almost a year and I like sometimes to just hop in and drive it still. I would recommend this car to anyone.


Favorite Features

I really like the power with good mileage. I also like the blue tooth. Its real handy. Also it had an adapter to run my iPod in the car


Suggested Improvements

To make the navigation a little simpler to operate and set it up so I can change locations well i drive.

Review

I purchased this car used from a reputable dealer in my area. It was a repossession with 10,000 miles on it. It is loaded with everything imaginable. Leather, sunroof, V6 3.5L, 6 speed trans, and a rare body ground effects kit w/spoiler & skirt. Chrome everything, bluetooth, remote start, fog lights. I absolutely love it. Talk about fast, 0-60 mph in about 5 seconds, and the gas mileage is amazing. The heated leather seats are the best, and the many seat adjustments make my driving experience a pleasure. If I had to buy this car again, I would never go back to a four cyl. car or a car with cloth seats. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this car to anyone.


Favorite Features

Exterior body styling/trim. V6 3.5L engine (268 horsepower). 6 speed transmission. Sunroof .Chromed dual exhaust. Actually I have too many favorites to list.


Suggested Improvements

The only things I would suggest would be less options for headlamp settings. Sometimes I'm not sure if my lights are on or off.

Review

After two decades of driving SUVs I finally gave in to high gas prices and bought a vehicle with better mileage. I spent way too much time on the internet researching and then test driving different cars before choosing the Camry. After owning my Camry SE V6 for six momnths I have no regrets. I chose the SE because I liked the tighter sport suspension. The V6 provides very good power yet I get an average of 28 MPG with mostly highway driving. Another plus; I'm over 6 feet tall and I fit comfortably in this car. I commute 60 miles round trip to work and truely enjoy driving this vehicle. I don't miss my SUV, if I need a larger vehicle for a day to haul more people or stuff I'll just rent one.


Favorite Features

I'm over 6 feet tall and I fit in this car. Plus powerful V6, great (and quite) ride and handles great. Also very good mileage for a V6.


Suggested Improvements

Would be nice to have a standard trip computer in the SE. Also the center head rest on the back seat blocked my view in the rear view mirror so I removed it.

Review

I bought my Camry to replace my 04 Miata (loved my car, but to have a car pmt and buy premium gas once a week - small tank; 190-220 miles before empty). For economic purposes I bought my Camry but insisted on the more adolecent SE V6 trim. I love the look of the car, the aggressive front end, everything about it. I do not regret my purchase one bit. My sunroof squeaked over bumps, but a quick dealer visit fixed it (there's a TSB).


Favorite Features

Styling, smooth V6.


Suggested Improvements

MORE TRD PARTS!! Only springs and an airfilter are available.

Review

I only have about 500 miles on the car and so far I love it but it is a rattle trap with a lot of unnecessary noises from interior of car. My seatbelt squeaks, I have several rattles coming from headliner. On the positive side, this car is a beast!!! I cannot say enough about how fast this thing is! I hope the dealership can iron out my compaints and let me love this car!!


Favorite Features

Stereo cranks, tiptronic shift, fun to drive factor.


Suggested Improvements

Fit and finish. Cheap interior enough with the rattles!! Tires.

Review

I turned in leased BMW530i, and got the camry. Guess what? I was very impressed. Very comfortable inside, feels very luxurious. I test drove the 2005 Lexus ES300. The XLE with leather is very very close to the older model of ES300. I love the blue tooth function. The rear sunshade is also great. Lots of storage room. I do have some issues with the performance. The car wont "go" at the stop sign, and the engine makes a lot of noise when accelerate. Also, the gas mileage doesn't seem to be too good. I average 22 so far in the first half tank of gas.


Favorite Features

Blue Tooth, storage, wood trim, rear sun shade, reclining rear seats


Suggested Improvements

smoother engine, traction control as standard

Review

Only had the car for 3 weeks - 700 miles. First tank of gas I got 23.5mpg, second I got 25. Oil filter is a little different on the v6. It is a cartridge element, not a spin on filter. This makes for a really clean oil change. Leather seat with Liquicell are amazingly comfortable. The ride is remarkable - very quiet and noninvasive. Transmission shifts confidently and correctly. It does NOT "hunt" of gears. Camry v6 is really quick. Originally wanted JBL sound until I heard the standard cd - there is no need to upgrade.


Favorite Features

V6 power and economy (you only lose 2 mpg over 4cyl). Quiet ride and Toyota quality interior and exterior. Comfort of leather seats is not immediately noticed but when you take a 2+ hour road trip you will.


Suggested Improvements

Make a compass standard on the LE and have it be displayed on the dash and not the rearview mirror.

Review

I loved the looks of this car, but soon after buying it, I began to regret it. What a nightmare. This car does not shift correctly. It jerks and then hesitates. Sometimes it downshifts when it shouldn't, sometimes it flares up and accelerates. Very very dangerous!!!


Favorite Features

The looks. The power of the engine.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the transmission!

Review

I've driven the Lexus 400 Series since 1991 and have just purchased a 2008 Toyota Camry SE V6, and the car is excellent. It's not the Lexus flagships I used to drive, but close & I have more money left in pocket which puts a smile on my face.


Favorite Features

HP, torque, exterior, VSC, traction control, EBD, regular unleaeded gasoline, service/maintenance costs.


Suggested Improvements

Interior looks, fit & finish.
