2005 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Cosmetic and annoying. Plastic rear speaker covers in the LE crumble after 4 years and fall into the speakers. Toyota refuses to reimburse for replacement covers. Poor design choice and a hassle to owners.


Worst Features

Improve quality of interior materials.

2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great car... I have put mostly highway miles on mine and am still on the original brakes after almost 5 years and 63000 miles. My only gripe is the paint/finish. I opted for a dealer- applied 5-yr super simonize wax and even with that, I still have deep chips and scratches. From driving on the hwy, I would've expected minor scratches on the hood from rocks, but these are like gouges. Other than that, this car has been amazing. I'll definitely purchase another Toyota as soon as I get 200000-250000 miles on this one.


Best Features

Reliability, 5000-mile recommended oil changes


Worst Features

PAINT/FINISH

2005 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 2nd Camry. My first was a 2002 which I love and still have. My 2005 is even better. I love the steering wheel mounted radio controls, the extra cog in the tranny, and the slight bump in HP and fuel economy. This car is smooth as can be. Great car for long trips. Interior materials are better quality than the 07 redesign. I love the fact that all I have to do is general maintenance. I have no troubles with this car or my 02 (which now has 140,000 miles). Have not had to see a mechanic not even once. As far as sportiness, there is none to be had here, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a good car, that is smooth, quiet and reliable, then look no further than the Camry.


Best Features

The smooth ride. Quiet engine. Rock solid reliability. The leather and fake wood pkg in my LE. Interior looks XLE for LE coin.


Worst Features

Needs a tad more power. A little more sportiness in the steering and handling.

2005 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I'll echo what other folk are saying. Bought mine new in 2005 and have had no problems at all, not even a burnt bulb. I think I'm at 83,000 miles or so now. I put Goodyear Tripletreads on around 40,000 as I didn't like the factory tires, and the Tripletreads greatly increased braking power, corner, and wet-condition handling. I usually get low 30s gas mileage for mix driving and mid thirties for long highway trips. Just be smart and buy this car if you're looking. Oh, and change the in-cabin air filter at least once a year to help with inside fog.


Best Features

Excellent reliability, curtain airbags, steering volume control, power driver's seat, great A/C, overhead sunglass storage space


Worst Features

I suggest Toyota and all other auto manufactures should go back to the good old days when they actually put enough paint on cars. This car, like all the recent ones I see, gets road chips entirely too easily. I could slide a hammer over the hood of my old 94 Camry and not even scratch it.

2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's a very reliable car. Low maintenance. However, when I need a sudden burst to accelerate on the freeway, it almost redlines going from 55mph to 65mph.


Best Features

I like that the driver's side seat has many adjustment options. The center console is also very handy. Great place to charge your phone or leave personal items out of plain view.


Worst Features

Improve the transmission.
