My wife bought this car new and drove it until she bought a 2015 Camry. It has gotten great gas mileage since the beginning and has had no repairs except for a new clutch. It has new tires/alignment, new clutch and serpentine belt. It has not been in the shop for anything but maintenance.
After 12 years the car we were told is "a great car" still runs fine, but not without more expensive repairs than an American made car. We were told upon purchase that the Toyota would hold more value when ready to trade. It is disappointing to see its value at this point is not much different than competition. The car has bee solid and usually dependable. The front seats are not designed for tall people. Leather has held up very well.
2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this auto with 120,000 miles on it. Very well maintained and perfect inside. The paint does chip very, easy so use the Vin number and buy a paint mark up from Toyota to cover the small spots which make them hard to see. Yes, the car would smoke for a few seconds after sitting for more than 24 hours. Use Lucas oil treatment at oil changes to stop this, it works. The car was drove 5000 miles, before the additive, and never used a drop and never used any thereafter. Getting 23.5 in town and 30 on the highway driving 75- 80. A very good car with small curable problems. Would buy it again it the opportunity presented itself and I needed an auto. TEXAS
