2005 Toyota Camry SE V6 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Owned 3 months with 1600 miles now, very dissatisfied with transmission hesitation. After normal slowing down and then reaccelerating, engine doesn't seem to know what to do. I'm praying Toyota will recall. Getting approx. 21 mpg. A/C and temperature lighted controls along with clock/passenger air bag monitor hard to see with normal sunlight. Love a breeze from a sunroof; but with Camry's open fully, can't feel any air w/o opening windows too. Performance P215/55/17 tires noisy on rough roads and over $175 each to buy - that's over $700 plus taxes & installation to replace all 4 tires & rated for only 20,000 miles. Front end design seems to attract many road stones and chips paint easily.

Best Features

Engine is quiet, hardly know it's running and despite hesitation problem, V6 has plently of speed. Leather and heated seats. JBL stereo is decent but could be better. Like the sunroof opening into the car roof then above and outside the roof. Rear window sunshade is nice feature. Spacious trunk.

Worst Features

FIX HESITATION PROBLEM! More options such as automatic low/high beam sensor, mileage/trip computer, keyless entry, power passenger seat, some more vivid exterior color options. More range with tilt wheel. Front bumber scratches easily from road stones. Rear seat A/C & heater vents.
