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


Yes, there is a hesitation problem, usually not from a long stop but when you slow down to the lowest gears then try to accelerate quickly. So it jerks sometimes. But once up and going, the car is very smooth and quiet. The engine sounds bad or burdened when accelerated hard though. Even though it's SE (V6), the ride is very comfortable even on the some bumps. I compared it with Honda accord (4-cyl). I felt that Accord has better transmission and build quality but the ride is terrible. I am getting 23.5 mpg on mostly highway usually traveling at 70 mph. It has a V6 punch and is somewhat fun to drive. The seat is comfy and it handles well.

Best Features

The ride is good. Very quiet when it's up and going. Audio controls on the wheel. Seats are comfortable. The price is relatively lower than other import V6s.

Worst Features

Lower end transmission behavior. Engine sound at hard start.
