I Hate This Car
By Roseanne on


2004 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


My husband and I have been driving
Toyotas for 35 years and have always
been completely satisfied.
Unfortunately, when we bought this car
we didn't test drive it and what a
mistake that was. It hesitates and
jumps ahead on a steady basis, but you
never know when. I really feel this is
dangerous and we will never buy a
Toyota again. It feels like it's
struggling to get any pick up. I'm
being told that this is because there's
a device protecting the transmission.
Sorry, Toyota, you messed up on this
model. We are trading it in but not for
another Toyota.

I completely concur with your description of the engine acceleration issue. I took mine into a non-Toyota mechanic and unfortunately got the "seems to drive fine to me" response. I've been a loyal Toyota fan prior to purchasing the same model as yours (used) but am now questioning Toyota's design principles. It seems that several others on this board have described the same problem in slightly different terms.
