Like, but not Love, my XLE
By Josh on


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


Very quiet, comfortable car. Toyota's auto-climate system is the best. It always knows exactly what to do. Very reliable, never had any problems with it. I don't especially love the car's handling because my former car was a Passat, but the Camry is an excellent car overall. The front end seems a little heavy for a 4cyl, which makes it lean more than it should in curves/corners. It does a good job of reminding me it's not a sports sedan. The seats are extremely comfortable for long trips. Get a spoiler..it really dresses the car up.

Best Features

Bumpin' JBL system; auto-climate system is the best ever; comfortable seats; black color looks really nice with spoiler and alloy rims; the time delay for auto-headlamps is perfect, and can be overridden by pressing the lock button twice.

Worst Features

The transmission downshifts over the slightest incline while on cruise; brakes don't feel confident; mpg computer is not accurate; not getting reported mpg on fwy (26mpg/fwy); 100k and already have to replace struts; steering wheel A/C controls would be nice; standard seat warmers for leather seats
