I have driven many Toyotas over the years, and they have all been engineered with rock solid precision and very high quality inner workings... until this car. It may be that 2007 was the low point of Toyota's quality slump. I bought this car used at about 135000 miles. From previous experience, that's not even halfway to end of life for a Camry. At first it was a pleasure to drive -- leather interior, JBL sound, smooth ride with little engine noise. However, at 145000 miles suddenly we had to have the transmission replaced (not repaired) -- a $3800 expense. At 153000 miles it started leaking transmission fluid, and at 155000 I've had to park the thing because of the $900 transmission pump replacement cost. In addition, we've had increasing engine noise, more corrosion problems than I would have expected, and smaller electrical issues. It may be that we've got an outlier, but this is not a car to expect to thrive on the long haul like the 1990s Camrys did.
this is my familys 8th toyota. we are very happy with the quality and durability that toyota has to offer. i purchased this 2007 camry for my daughter who is in college it has 65,000 miles on it and is in great shape. i bought this car for toyotas reliability and safety.
