So far I love this car! Very well made, no rattles, Quiet. Great acceleration. Not to impressed with xm or the voice commands but I may not know fully how to use it yet. This model is fully loaded and I can't think of anything else I would want. Oh yeah, the led headlights are incredible! Also led high beams and auto high beams and driving lights. I do wish they had continued the led's in the back. And I think all Camrys have (real transmissions) not those CVT's I hate those.
I owned a 2005 Toyota Camry LE. It was so reliable that my kids called it OLD FAITHFUL. Basicly it was maintenance free. I only did oil change, tire and battery change on it in the past 11.5 years. If it wasn't due to an accident that required expensive body work, I definately will keep it running. In comparison, the new 2017 Toyota LE did not change that much. Things I like better: back cemera, modern body shape, touch screen, roomy glove compartment with a lock, USB plug. Things I don't like: insulation is not good, wind sound louder; body construction feels not as solid as 2005 model, big gaps at all outside metal pieces; the car still moves a little without parking brake on when you switch to park (giving you scary feelings). Overall, it is a great car.
I purchased this 2017 Camry XLE 2 weeks ago. First time owning a Toyota. I opted for the 6 cylinder. So far so good. I will be taking my first long road trip next week, so I will get a better feel of it. But, from what I have experienced so far, the CAMRY XLE is everything as advertised. Maybe after my road trip I will give another review with more detail
1. Toyota has slightly higher reliability 2. Better sound system. 3. Honda has ugly cheap tiny sounding speakers mounted at left/right front corners of windshield. 4. Toyota better price. 5.Toyota dealers much easier to deal with. 6. Been with Honda for 28 years, time to try the "other guys".
DEFECTIVE new 2017 Toyota Camry!!
On November 18, 2016, we bought a new 2017 Toyota Camry. We bought Toyota because of its reputation in reliability and quality. But it turns out this car is defective and made with a bad transmission. Because of this major defect, we have reason to believe there?s extremely poor quality control of the production process of this entire car if not other 2017 Camry?s.
We weren?t given a chance to test drive the new car by our dealer. On our way back home on 11/18, we noticed that the car jerked forward abnormally every time when we pressed on the brake. We took our car back to the dealer on 11/22 after try driving it multiple times at dealer?s recommendation. It took the dealer 4 hours to fix it. They adjusted the fluid level within the transmission according to the paperwork. We haven?t had a chance driving the car again until 12/5 because of a flu in the family. On 12/5, the car won?t reverse and showed a warning message ?Check Vehicle Stability Control System?. On 12/6/16, Toyota sent a toll truck and took our car back to the dealer?s service department. This time the service department replaced the defective new transmission with a re-manufactured (non-new) transmission.
In two weeks after we had this car, the car has gone through 2 repairs on transmission and included the replacement of transmission on a brand new car. We paid for a brand new Toyota Camry XLE, now 2 weeks later, the transmission is broken and replaced with a refurbished transmission. It might be a better choice to just buy a used car with much less price.
This is a terrible new car experience for us and we have to warn other consumers about it. There should be something special about owning a new car. Toyota destroyed our experience by giving us a defective car and wants us to go through a lengthy process to get a refund or replacement. Stay away from 2017 Toyota Camry!!
