2007 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Extremely reliable. Given high standard Toyota sets, a couple of critisisms. 1-Transmission on 4 cylinder vibrates and introduces noise at idle in gear [stop lights]. 2-The "Offer" to test and potentially fix oil consumption was phony. For me took the glow off Toyota's quality and ethics. Took in to dealer for testing; they offered to replace seals on BOTH oil pan and transmission to fix a barely visible oil seepage which wetted the edge of seal on oil [only] pan. Replacing seal on transmission was just fraudulently overselling; my wife and daughers would have been out $700 plus tax for NO benefit. They couldn't find enough oil on pan to wet more than a third of pan bottom after smearing around to make an impression [I have clean cardboard under car in garage; totally clean.] Dealer refused to test as my car was "leaking" too much oil. Went to second dealer who looked me up on computer to see test previously rejected and refused to test; blacklisted this customer. De Facto the program got cars in for dealer priced "repairs." Engine has run fine, but does consume .6 quarts oil per thousand miles. I wonder how many folks actually got engines repaired for oil consumption. Otherwise a fine boring car.

This car hasn't performed anywhere near to what we were hoping. At 36K miles it began burning oil to which the dealer said it's normal. At 100k miles, Toyota knew they had a big problem and recognized it as excessive oil consumption. The unfortunate part being that we lost confidence that the car would last very long given it was burning a quart of oil every oil change as far back as 36k. At around 95k, Toyota finally did the engine work required and it stopped burning oil. At 100k miles, the engine mounts went and were changed with OEM mounts by the dealer and the car vibrates after the change when in drive at a stop. 110k miles the lower power steering return line rusted through, clearly due to a poor design (lowest point of metal). At 120k the flex hose pipe went (normally a $50 part), but with Toyota you have to buy alot more for $900. So we are about to purchase a new car shortly and don't have a good feeling about the quality put into these cars anymore.
