Sporty and comfortable sedan. One of first Toyota's with SS timing belt chain and exhaust. Just replaced muffler at 242,000 miles and 11 years. Interior fabric is only thing that wasn't ideal and quite comfortable. Peppy 5 speed manual and tinted power windows makes the newer Camry seem a bit boring and last made on the Lexus line. 17" rims with power sun/moon roof make it a daily joy and 2-3 days a year with it was AWD, however for other 362-363 love it. Starting to burn oil at 235K.
Pros: Easy to drive
Cons: nothingEasy on Maintenance, good mileage
2005 Toyota Camry SE-V6
Pros: Fuel economy and exterior styling
Cons: cannot think of anything.I really love this car. It has a style all its own and the inetrior is roomy and comfortable. The newer Camry's are plain looking and resemble many of the cars on the road like them (Accord, Altima, etc...) and looks like it was made on the same assembly line as those other cars listed.
Best car yet!!!
Cons: Nothing.I was one of those people that would buy nothing but BIG american cars, you know, Cadillac, Olds, Buick ect... I've heard so much about Toyota's being great that I've decided to buy a 1997 Camry. WOW... 157,000 plus miles and went to the shop just for regular maintenance. Now I have a 2005 Camry SE V-6 and my only complain is that i wish it was a larger car. Great car!!!
Pros: the whole car
Cons: what i like least is i dont have more then one camry

Pros: Interior layout and storage
Cons: Annoying engine humming noise
Advice: Do extended test drive - all camrys not the sameThe car is top of class in refinement and comfort. I enjoy driving it immensely. I especially like the cockpit layout and ergonomics. Handling is precise and secure and the power from the 4 cyl is more than adequate. My camry, a standard, is noisier and rides harsher than an LE that I test drove. Dealer said it was the tires. I have not put on new tires yet, so cannot confirm this. My tires, Bridgestone Potenza RE 92, gives a sports car ride - stiff without body lean and noisey. Fun to drive, but not comfortable on long trips. Other gripes: annoying engine hum coming from the exhaust manifold - dealer says this is normal. Seat position is too high from floor for short people. I am 5'6'.
Pros: space and MPG
Advice: Drive it and love it.I am a new (Used car) Camry se owner and have had no bad complaints about the vehicle. My trade in vehicle was a 03' dodge durango which burned a hole in my pocket for gas. I am very comfortable driving it and always want to take it out for a ride. I have 2 children and there's plenty of room for travel. I highly recomend getting this car.
