There has been a break in period where this car just wanted to go go go. Now that she is broken in at 12,000 the gas mileage is going up almost by the tank full(28 if I gun it almost 33 if I drive sensibly) and the handling is smoothing out. Compaired to the buick I was driving this 4 cylender car is very snappy and holds the road great. It is a joy to drive. Quite and reliable.

First car I've owned. Was bought brand new. Used mainly to drive my parents and brothers around and getting me to work and school. Drives really nice. Problems include speakers' covers in the back chipped into pieces. Have had the battery burn off its own battery cord. A piece NEXT to the water pump came off and created this horrible noise that made me think it was going to explode. When going past 65 mph it doesn't feel too sturdy to drive especially when we get Santa Ana Winds here in OC, CA. Other than that I like the soft[?] steering, the nimbleness of the car, great mpg, maintenance cost is low for the most part. :) Probably better to get the 6 Cylinder for more horsepower for highway, but the 4 Cylinder is good for city drive. Would love the 07+ models.

Nicest overall car I've owned

I leased an 05 4-cylinder Camry, then purchased an 06 version of it. I'm so satisfied with it, does exactly what it's supposed to do without fuss. Has plenty of power, nice gas mileage (can reach upper 30's on the highway if I'm careful), quiet, plenty of room (huge trunk), comfortable seats & ride. I have the base version, but so nicely appointed, it 's a steal! I even pull a small, 1400 lb. trailer (this car is rated for 2000 lb., but 07s are not) amazingly well, still get gas mileage in low 20s while towing. 5-speed transmission is really nice, makes for a responsive drive train, yet gives nice low revs at highway speeds. Build quality is excellent, zero problems after 20,000 miles.

After three years and 40,000 miles, my car is as reliable as its reputation. I buy gas and change the oil. The only replacement has been the tires. My previous car was a Catera, Cadillac's piece of junk. This car is as reliable as its reputation. Why buy anything else?

Purchased 2nd hand off of a rental company 54 000km,and it has performed flawlessly ,now at 70,000km a year later. Very touchy steering,a bit noisy at hiway speeds, base model driver seat does put pressure under your thighs, poor rear visibility for backing up. I find the 4 cyl has plenty of power, as does the stereo and A/C and headlamps. The great resale value helps too. Huge trunk ! and fold down rear seats for lumber or sleeping, and good summer gas milage 37mpg summer, 29 mpg winter. at 10 clicks over speed limit. So far I love it for a small car,

I bought a 2006 camry LE 4 cyl. because of high reviews but I have been dissatisfied with my decision. It now has 34,000 miles (1 1/2 yrs old) and I have already replaced the tires a few thousand miles back. The paint is coming off everywhere and rust is coming on those spots. I have had it back to the dealer a couple of times because I felt like the transmission was slipping (they tell me its normal). The transmission delay has been so bad that I have almost been rear-ended twice. Overall, I wish I had gone with the Accord.
