So i bought my 2005 Camry SE v6 I see complaints about handling but noticed all complaints are on the cheapest model camrys LE's base 4cyl Mine handles like a champ (sway bars bigger rims/wider tires on the SE) 120,000 miles not a single issue other than my sunroof is touchy. Gas milage is unbelievable for a good size sedan 34 hwy I live in mohave county Az average temp in summer near 120, paint is still nearly perfect no fade. Trunk space would make al capone blush, I could hide 10 bodies in there. 225hp is just right, my altima SER was overboard and caused wheel spin 285hp, Plus tires were a yearly issue on the altima. Build quality... It ain't no BMW but its better than average. Great car overall, not fancy but still classy.

I have owned my fair share of cars, and this is definitely my favorite to drive to work in every day. No, it's not exciting to drive, but it is very comfortable and has plenty of power for the average person. I have had zero issues with this car, just routine maintenance. Has a very good stock audio system in the car, I can't see myself selling this any time soon! I drive a lot of long trips, this car just eats away the miles!

I bought this car with 30k miles in 2006 and have now put another 100k on it. Aside from routine fluid and tire changes, this car has given me absolutely no mechanical difficulties. It got nearly 40 miles per gallon on the freeway when I first got it, but now (2013) it's closer to 32. Here are some cons: the keyless entry stopped working on me a year ago; the back speakers shattered on me into little pieces two years ago (this seems to be a common problem -- the sun pretty much destroys them); the molding on the cd player began to become unsealed from the heat of the sun. Overall, this has been a spectacular car. I plan on driving it until it's totally dead.

320986 miles and still running like new

I own a 2005 Toyota Camry 2.4 liter xle. It now has 320987 miles. ( Mileage Updated on July 2020) I have kept the maintenance up on her since I bought her and this past year I have done some upkeep on her. (New starter, new catalytic converter, new front end suspension, shocks/struts, new radiator cap, new radiator and replaced some hoses and changed all of the fluids. I have done oil changes, oil filter, air filter, and cabin filter changes since day one every 3000 to 5000 miles. In fact, I just had the oil changed last night and my mechanic told me that the way "Graycee" runs, I should plan on another 50,000 to 100,000 miles. I never thought I would ever find another car that would compare or outdo my honda crx, but I have to admit, this Toyota Camry has been an awesome car. Other than a few minor paint chips and a couple of scratches, the car looks new (lots of baths and car waxes) lol. I have never been happier with any other car and don't plan on buying another one for a very long time. I will drive her until I have to bury her. One can't go wrong on an older model Toyota Camry. When I bought her, she had 91,000 miles and she has never let me down. I highly doubt if the newer ones will stand up against this one.

Camry #1 How many years in a row?

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

This is the 3rd Toyota Camry I've owned and they have all been purchased USED. I buy them with 30,000 miles or less and drive them for (no less than 4 years)and an additional 150,000 miles until trade in. Total annual cost (average) to own the vehicle? $2910 including tax, title and maintenance. When my current Camry is paid off in 2 months the annual cost to own my Camry will drop to $419. And I'll ride that out for 2 more years. Not a bad annual cost to ride a fully loaded Camry V6 XLE loaded to the gills. Since 1997? Why would I drive ANYTHING else. Seriously!
