Purchased with 180K miles still running great

I bought a 2005 Camry XLE with 180K miles last year and it now has 204K miles. The car is 16 years old and the paint still looks great. It has the original exhaust, and the 2.4L I-4 engine is bulletproof. It runs strong and the automatic transmission shifts well with no slipping. I got 39 mpg on my trip from Chicago to Phoenix and I averaged about 88mph the whole trip. A/C is cold. I bought this car for $3200 and it still looks and drives like a $15,000 car. I anticipate driving this car upwards of 300-350K miles before I probably buy electric in 5 years.

Most reliable car I've ever owned

This car met all of my needs. I believe it can go another 150,000 miles. It has plenty of legroom in the front and back. the 2005 series has to be one of the best Camry's Toyota has made. The ride is great and I enjoy being able to remote start my car in the winter. The added hands free bluetooth is also a plus.

4.7

Peeling clear coat

Where is the recall for the peeling clear coat for the 2005 Camry? Many Camrys have this problem not just mine! It doesn't make Toyota look good (literally).
