2005 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my 2004 Camry XLE 4cyl. for $22K in April 04. I wanted an easy to drive, quiet, low maintenance, and reliable car that wouldn't look out of place in the middle class/upscale areas of Irvine. I commute 70+ miles RT each day. This is what I think so far... The good: avg. 30 mpg over its lifetime; effortless to drive (quiet ride, steering requires little effort, braking is smooth); no mechanical problems. The bad: difficult car to drive aggressively (poor acceleration; heavy front and front-wheel drive makes cornering and emergency braking tricky...thank God is has ABS); intermitent rattle in center console.


Best Features

Fuel mileage computer (miles remaining computer is accurate to 1-2 miles left in the tank); automatic temperature control; Bose sound system.


Worst Features

None at all.

2005 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Wonderful car on highway or back roads. 18 Gal tank gives you less stopping time on trips. Comfort and reliability.


Best Features

computer for gas mileage and trip data. electric seats very adjustable and comfortable for tall as well as short people. Passenger seat also adjusts electrically. Locks automatically when gear is engaged. Great trunk space. Love all the little cubby holes.


Worst Features

Trunk lock out is great but there should be an unlock device (keyed) within the car on the back seats. It is not very convenient to crawl into the trunk to unlock the back seats. Cannot reach from outside the car. Would like a place for a woman to put a handbag (within reach of the driver).

2005 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I relied on consumer reports and thier evaluation of the camrey as being refined and quiet and was disapointed after driving over different road surfaces finding only brand new asphalted roads as quiet. most roads create what I call "road roar", an unpleasant sound. after owning and viewing the camry from different angles it's less than eye catching.


Best Features

ride, handling, engine, dash controls and displays, fit and finish, reputation.


Worst Features

design, better road insulating

2005 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle is just AWESOME. I just love the sleek design and I love Toyota because they're vehicles are the MOST reliable out of all other makes. The only car I would ever buy is a Toyota. The XLE model has many advanced features and the best thing, they aren't at all hard to use. Toyota is just awesome. I bought a USED Corolla in 1995 and currently it has around 110 K miles and is still running great. I would recommend Toyota


Best Features

compass, power seats, rear vents, auto climate air-conditioner, wood grains, 6- CD changer, sleek design, very roomy, advanced security system(more advanced than LE and SE models).

2005 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought car in Feb 2005. After about 600 miles noticed car would hesitate from stop, 1st to 2nd gear. Also, downshifts rather hard around 45 and 60 mph. The camry is a nice car though. And not all camry's will act this way. Toyota says that things are working within spec. Discouraging.


Best Features

Comfort is excellent on long drives. Gas mileage is excellent. The rear windows go all the way down.


Worst Features

Address the abnormal hesitation and downshifts. They are problems eventhough they may be within spec. Need separate driver/passenger climate controls. Add cruise controls to steering wheel.
