Camry slips in quality
By John Youngt on


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


We chose Camry because of reliability. I wish now I had not. Our 05 Camry has a problem knowing when to shift (either up or down). The dealership indicates the new electronic transmission is known for this problem and apparently Toyota does not have an answer. The hesitation in shifting is troublesome and will probably get worse with age. In addition to the transmission the Camry has very soft braking, another acknowledged defect by the dealer but one for which they have no cure. So beware!

Best Features

The XLE has a lot of bells and whistles but now I question their realibility as the car ages.

Worst Features

Better insulation against road noise. Perfect or junk the computerized transmission. Improve braking. Increase seat size as trips prove tiring. Increase front leg room. The 05 V6 is underpowered.
