2007 Toyota Camry Sedan XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Have 106,000 miles and still going strong. Paint needs some attention but mechanically the car is great. Could not ask for a better car. Adequate performance, good gas mileage, very comfortable (leather seats), reclining rear seats and large trunk. Only major repair was the a/c, two years ago and replacement of dash due to a melting problem which was covered by Toyota through an extended program.
2007 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
This will be my second review on Edmunds; I wrote a review on my 1997 Lincoln Town Car, which I still have and love. The Camry is my mother's car, but I drive it more often than not, and I'm writing this review because she would never say a bad word about any Toyota product. I'll start with the negatives: the interior is nice looking and well-designed but very cheap. There are plenty of squeaks and rattles. The padded dash was nice until it started melting in the heat a few years ago; it gets very sticky and a fingernail will scratch it. She did get a notice from Toyota about this but never had it fixed. We've had somewhat elevated oil consumption, although apparently not as bad as others; it has 130,000 miles now, and it's not that bad. The power locks went out at about 95,000, although that may be an isolated issue. The build and body quality is also disappointing; the trunk is moderately misaligned and will not shut unless you slam it. Some panels fit loosely, and there are a few cosmetic issues. One of the dummy fog lights fell out. Having had 3 other Camrys, including my Dad's 2005, this is very irritating. His has a high-quality interior and excellent build quality. All this being said, the car does have many good points. It's very comfortable and quiet, it gets good gas mileage, and aside from the oil consumption, we've never had a major problem from it at all. The engine and transmission are smooth and refined. All in all, I think Toyota is a decent company that makes mostly reliable, if unexciting, vehicles, but sometimes they ride high on their reputation; the quality on this car is nowhere near it used to be. I've test driven newer ones, and it's improved but still not as nice as they have made. Overall I would recommend this car to anyone who's interested, but people who care about driving should know that there's not a thing exciting about it or almost any other Toyota product; they always get you from point A to point B predictably, but the're very boring.
