I have driven many Toyotas over the years, and they have all been engineered with rock solid precision and very high quality inner workings... until this car. It may be that 2007 was the low point of Toyota's quality slump. I bought this car used at about 135000 miles. From previous experience, that's not even halfway to end of life for a Camry. At first it was a pleasure to drive -- leather interior, JBL sound, smooth ride with little engine noise. However, at 145000 miles suddenly we had to have the transmission replaced (not repaired) -- a $3800 expense. At 153000 miles it started leaking transmission fluid, and at 155000 I've had to park the thing because of the $900 transmission pump replacement cost. In addition, we've had increasing engine noise, more corrosion problems than I would have expected, and smaller electrical issues. It may be that we've got an outlier, but this is not a car to expect to thrive on the long haul like the 1990s Camrys did.

I love my Toyota

This 2007 Camry V6 has been the most reliable and maintenance free car I've every owned(And I've owned at least 20 cars!). I have 130,000 miles on it, only maintenance has been two sets of tires, one set of brake pads, wiper blades and cabin filter. Oil/filter changes are done free of charge by the dealer every 5000 miles. It still has the original battery! The engine is very smooth and powerful(better than my wife's newer BMW). I still get 30 mpg on the highway. It runs the same now as it did 9 years ago. My only very minor complaint about the design is the rear seat should have folded down 60/40 instead of the small pass through. I think the reclining rear seat didn't allow for the folding, poor design choice. No one ever reclines the rear seat. Great car!

We have had great success with this purchase. The dealership was not much help and costly but the vehicle has been very reliable for the past 7 years. No major malfunctions. It does use a little oil. Toyota had a recall on this but with a "Toyota Test" they decided it did not use enough oil to warrant a fix. It uses about a quart over 1500 - 2000 miles.

I previously left my review back in 2012 and now its 2015 and its been better and I had the transmission serviced and now have no issues with the car at all im at 98000 miles and its running strong and the build quality has improved and looks a lot better now that the recalls on dashboard has been done and it fixed a lot of mismatches with the pillars and things and now my car is fully cleaned and detailed and its great to have a car that I trust on the road my car does not burn any oil and that's with me changing the oil every 3000 miles and I haven't missed a oil change and I get 28 to 30 hwy and city I get 25.8 so I haven't gotten 31 mpg yet and I drive the car once a week straight hwy ....

This car had an oil consumption issue. Toyota considers 1 qt. per 1100 miles normal. For me the oil consumption and loss of gas mileage was not acceptable nor normal. The final detail was the resale value. In 2012 I paid $13,000 for the car. In 2015 a Toyota dealer would only give me $3,000 trade in value. This car was a loss from start to finish. No part of the Toyota ad campaign in true.

I was super lucky to come across a 2007 in Super White. My Camry has the optional sunroof but doesn't have the optional JBL stereo system which looking back is definitely an option to have because of Bluetooth. I have a really long commute and the ride is awesome even with the Stiffer Sport Shocks and springs. Braking cam be improved with changing the pads and rotors, diy project coming soon. Overall this is a great purchase at $9,000 -$10,000 with 100,000 miles. The details are in the options so take great care in choosing correctly.

I purchased my 2007 Camry SE in late 2013 with 117,000 miles. Less than two years later, the odometer reads 168,000. I have had ZERO problems, and I have beat the crap out of this car. Neglected oil changes, bald tires, some body damage, and I NEVER open the hood. It still runs like a dream! It's deceivingly fast, and if it didn't have that dang traction control, I have no doubt it would smoke the tires. I can weave in and out of traffic (yes, I'm that guy) with ease. The seats are comfortable (and I'm a fat, old guy) and there is plenty of headroom. I guess the only complaint is the navigation system. In order to update it, you have to purchase a DVD, for $80-100..cheaper to buy a GPS..it was probably cutting edge technology for 2007. Just filled it today and checked my MPG..it was 28. I LOVE MY CAMRY. First "foreign" (even though it's assembled in the USA) car I've ever owned. Most US cars cannot compare to this little rice rocket!

Hi, I bought my camry new from the dealership. The only problem I had its that at 70k miles started burning oil a lot, I brough the car to service dep and they told me that is a had gusket, and they fixed cause was under warranty, but the car still burned oil as much as the beginning. I brough back to Toyota and they were saying that the car is to old that's y is burning this much oil. I stop dealing with Toyota service dep. My camry now has 190k still runs good, it doesn't have the same pick up as it used to but still runs good. At 7 years I have changed tires twice, 2 batteries, struts once, a radiator, a lot of adding oil, and oil changes every 5k miles. my new car would be a camry again

I own a 2007 V6 Camry XLE purchased new from a dealer in New Jersey. The vehicle currently has 87,000 + miles and it has been completely trouble free. The only warranty service that I had done to the vehicle under the extended warranty was the oil line for the VVT. (This was done prior to it leaking when I read about the possibility of it failing on the "net!") The vehicle is only serviced by the selling dealer and I change the engine oil and filter at 2,500 miles. (My choice!) ---- (I DO NOT believe in extended oil / filter change intervals!) I do not have any "sludge" in my engine. At every fuel "fill up" I use an upper cylinder lubricant. (Four ounces to every ten gallons.)

I spent a tremendous amount of time researching and comparing vehicles before purchasing my 2007 Toyota Camry 4dr. I bought it new. The viser immediately was broken and I have been to the dealership for recalls several times. The brakes have been squeaking for at least a year every time I back up and so far the three places I took it to cannot fix them. The car also squeals when turning corners and this is after new tires. The biggest hazard is the inability to see out of the back widow. The rear end is too high and impossible to see out of the back. This was my first and last Toyota.

Like many other posters, I bought the Camry based on their reputation but it has been a HUGE dissappointment. Multiple recalls, extended parts warranties, snap-on visors and floor mats falling apart, new struts at 25000, a hard shifting transmission and now I find out about the sludge-prone motor, just to name a few. The most frustrating aspect is that Toyota refuses to be accountable for their mistakes unless forced to, then they still claim 'driver fault' on issues like brakes, sludge and visors. The Service Director at Pat Lobb's Toyota in McKinney even brought up "lemon" in our conversation. But then decided it couldn't be since it made it to 128000 miles. hmm...Very Low Standards!

We bought this car based on Toyota's reputation for high quality/value, but were ultimately disappointed. Compared to the previous-generation (2001-06) Camry, the interior of the 2007 - while great LOOKING - is very cheap. Lots of hard, creaky plastics, thin seat material, and very cheap-feeling HVAC controls & some other switchgear. Both sun visors broke internally and would just hang down & had to be replaced (with same poor design). The struts had a reputation for failing early (ours were shot & leaking by 30K miles). Worst of all, the engine began using oil excessively by about 70K miles - which I discovered was common for this (2.4L) engine in all of the vehicles it was used.

I purchased 2007 Camry LE V6 new and enjoyed driving all these years.I put up 73,000 Miles and never had issues other than the normal wear and tear.The best part is the V6 Engine which is quick to accelerate and smooth.My car still rides like new.in one long trip i got 34mpg.Now a days its averaging 24 mgp/hwy.The interior looks good but not great.if you look closely the interior has gaps in the edges and finish is not good. The one think i dont like is the steering.Its bigger.. The seats are getting uncomfortable in the long drives.The cabin is quiet and the car rides smooth.

I bought a Toyota Certified 2007 Camry LE in 2010. I wanted economy in a more roomy package, and reliability. I took advantage of the controversy with all the recalls that year and got my car for a couple thousand less than it would have otherwise sold for without it. I also bought the extended warranty for peace of mind, and I get the oil changed and general service every 5K. So far, the car has been a champ. It may be a bit on the "vanilla" side from a performance and styling standpoint, but it's lived up to the Toyota reputation for quality. The only problem I've encountered are occasional hiccups with the Bluetooth, but not frequent enough to require service.

I bought this car 2007 Toyota Camry LE 4cylinder last Nov,2006. The car has a mileage of 45,000 . Unfortunately the water pump leaked and the drive belt tensioner needs a replacement. I went to my dealership and I was informed that my car pass the 5 years warranty. I bought the parts at parkway toyota: water pump:$175.00 drive belt tensioner assembly $387.00 + the labor of my mechanic. OEM of toyota is made by AISIN , the drive belt tensioner is Made in Canda by Litens. Todays Toyota car is not the same durability as the previous model. In the near future I'am better off purchasing Nissan or Honda car

I bought my Camry new back in 2006. I now have over 103,000 miles on this car and it is still going strong with barely any problems. I fixed all recall issues which include the floor mat and break pedal they were simple fixes. My water pump does need to be replaced. I already purchased the part and it will only cost $180.00 to have it put on. If you go to the dealer it will cost a little more. Other than that just regular, on time maintenance is all that is needed to properly maintain this car. Even though my husband is an aggressive driver it still has held up. Out of the four cars I've owned the Camry is the most reliable.

I purchased my 2007 Camry LE with 5000 miles. The car has now 57K. I have changed the oil and driven this car ever since I bought it and I am very happy with the purchase. The only problem that I have had was the check engine light came on at about 35k and there was an O2 sensor in the Charcoal Canister. This car is a very reliable car and requires very little maintenance if you treat it right. When you buy this car used with more than 50k, you take on the risk of having problems because you don't know how the previous owner(s) have treated this car, which is the only reason that I can think of about the negative reviews below. Overall, very happy with this car and would definitely buy again

Just purchased a used 2007 Camry. I really believe that most of these negative reviews are lies on this site. My car is smooth and well built and drives like a dream. I am very happy with the first 1000 miles.

I hate this car! Traded in my Tacoma for a "family" car that has given me nothing but problems! 95K to date. Warranty Fixes: Moon Roof Leak, 3-sets of new brakes and disks, 1-set of new struts, 3-sets of new tires, 1 new tranny and now NON-Warranty Fixes: the water pump went out and rear axle is leaking. Not sure if I am giving up on Toyota entirely, but definitely giving up on Camry.

Bought Toyota Camry based on quality reputation. We have 2001 Highlander also. Begining there were recalls (leak above driver side visor let water in, gas pedal/accelerator/floor mat issue, VVT (sp?) hose, transmission slippage). At 89K miles water pump broke. Dealer said it's $1,400 to replace as V6 models have major labor to remove engine parts to get at pump. I had replaced Ols Intrigue that had same issue at 105K miles and was much cheaper to replace. Will not buy Toyota again...will go with Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, or Hundai Sonata.

Its an expensive commuter/ beater car. Honestly, for the price they charge and what you get, you could find a much funner and more responsive car to drive with a LOAD more features standerd than this. Ive been driving my brother 07 Camry LE and, besides being zippy around town, the positives stop there. The car has 39k on it as of 2012 and, the water pump is going out on it. The paint is HORRIBLE and started flaking when my brother washed it on the front bumper. For the same price, you could get a much better car with a way better warrenty and features. The car has horrible steering and the throttle system is so annoying, it basically feather the throtle for you

The car appeared be be a great vehicle initially. I began to have problems with the transmission early on, but the dealership advised nothing was wrong. Now that I have 120,000 mile on it and out of warranty, they recommend a new transmission. The durability on the flawed designed transmission makes the vehicle a liability at this point. I've read several reviews with the same story. Toyota should have recalled this transmission. That is probably why they changed designs for future models. At this point, I would not recommend anyone to purchase this model vehicle or any other Toyota. It is not a reliable vehicle as they use to advertise. It's garbage. Now I have to spend $4400 on a new trans

I sell cars for a living and have for the last 40 years. In the 80s it was all honda, nothing else measured up. Now I sell Toyotas. I never purchase new because of the depreciation. I am purchasing a used 2007 Toyota Camry, one owner with 149000 miles on it. The car is brand new inside and out and themileage doesn't bother me at all. It has been checked out by a master Toyota Technician and I am not scared at all because of the miles. People who look at a car and back off of it because of mileage are missing the boat when it comes to a good deal on a valuable piece of merchandise. Toyota is the Manufacturer of the last decade with fit and finish and value. Don,t be afraid to buy one.

This has been the best car I have ever owned...ever! In warmer weather it delivers 45 mpg, in winter 41 mpg. Taken it back to the dealer for oil/filter changes since new; every 3K-5K miles. Drive 97 miles per day commuting to work, mostly highway. Water pump went out at 65K miles, the hybrid drive battery at 72K miles. Dealer ate the labor, I paid $200 for the pump. Toyota covered main hybrid battery completely. Have never changed the brakes. Plan to keep the car forever.

I have been very dissappointed with the 07' SE Toyota Camry. I purchased new and it currently has about 65k. So far I had the rotars resurfaced; reset the right front end fender; and after replacing factory tires, the back of the veicles makes a loud metal rubbing sound. I have taken it back to the dealer and the tire store and they both are unable to "duplicate" the noise. I wish I could get a straight answer. Has anyone experienced this problem? This is the 1st Toyota that I have ever had problems with.

I bought my camry off the showroom floor. It is a 2007 SE. Less than one year from the date of purchase I found myself back in the dealership to purchase NEW tires. The dealer gave me a "discount" and said the factory tires were "softer" therefore wearing out faster. Since then, I have put on 2 more sets of tires, ONE set per year and I in less than a month, I will have to purchase my 4th SET of tires! These tires are not cheap! I bought the camry because of the low maintenance reputation. I was wrong! Did I mention that I have had the two front bearings go out and a water pump? YES....my 2007 Camry SE is a LEMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Purchased new in September 2006 to replace a 1999 Camry LE V6 with 225,000 miles on it that I had purchased used. I've replaced the brakes once (will need to replace again soon), the struts once, the battery last month, and changed the oil every 7 to 10,000 miles. I've not had a single problem otherwise (except when a deer ran into it a couple years ago). Not a very exciting car, but a comfortable and reliable one.

I have been a loyal Toyota driver for the last 20 years. The 2007 Camry is first Toyota Lemon I have owned. First year the O2 sensor failed. The air bag covers fall off and need to be reattached regularly. The ignition coil had to be replaced year 3. All day project to change spark plugs. Rear seatbelt failed year 1. Sun visor attached by thin brittle plastic housing, failed year 3. In winter driving the car disables steering to keep you safe if you enter a slide. I prefer to have steering. I would like to sell mine, but I would feel like I was taking advantage of the person buying it.

Purchased my 2007 Camry SE, 4 cylinder, auto brand new in December 2006 to replace a car that was totalled in an accident. The Camry SE with the factory ground effects/spoiler/6-spoke alloys has a much better look than the other Camrys and that is the only reason I purchased it. Chose it over a slightly used 2005 Acura TSX-auto. The black cloth interior and special gauge lighting specific to the Camry SE also helped seal the deal. The Camry SE was comfortable, quiet, reliable, good on gas and as stated earlier, easy on the eyes.

After driving a BMW that was braking down at least once a month, and after so much money spent to fix, I am Pretty shocked by some of the reviews Ive read. I have not had any problems with my Camry after almost 4 years and 95,000 miles. never the less I have never done anything to the car but oil changes every five thousand miles. It does have a small rattle on the dashboard and may have to change the rotors soon but after 95000 miles well id have to anyway. Now after reading this reviews I wonder if I should start looking into a different car before I hit 100,000 miles. I was hoping to get a V6 Camry but now Im hesitant.

My 2007 4 cylindercamry has always vibrated in drive with the ac on when stopped. This is how the dealer handled it. First we changed to name brand high test gas. Then we had multiple computer adjustments to 750 rpm at idle. In a short time it dropped to 500 rpm and back to the vibration. Then they did a top engine cleaner at a cost to me of $100.00 now they they say I need a new throttle valve assembly that is defective at a cost of $1000.00 dollars. Toyota will pick up $500.00 but alas it's out of warranty! P. S. Toyota awful. Never again

Bought the car used in December 08 for my daughter's birthday. I heard they were reliable and held their value well. My daughter had no complaints for the first few months. Then, the infamous pedal sticking problem occurred. Thankfully, my daughter was not in an accident. After this happened, I let Toyota know about it and they finally came up with a new pedal system that was absolutely terrible, way too jittery and makes you either accelerate too fast and slip A LOT or go extremely slow and watch everyone pass you. The interior is austere, exterior is alright, fuel economy is not that impressive for a Camry. It is not all that comfortable inside. Overall, the car is average or even below.

Purchased Camry for Toyota's product & service reputation. Within 1000 miles, drive train (transmission) began to shift either very hard, or slipped; had very uncoordinated shifts. Dealers told me I was too sensitive, cptr was still learning, and everything else to make me go away. Most every discrepancy was dismissed, or pencil whipped without maint. Toyota's quality of product AND service have been denied. They finally admitted to a problem, only to dismiss me once again because another Toyota on the lot did the same thing...that's like a tire company saying it's OK and considered normal for a tire to come apart and explode when another tire does the same. I won't purchase another Toyota.

this the 4th toyota i have owned and probably the last. i drive 90% highway miles (hint zero to none use of brakes) and had to replace the rotors and pads at 14,000 miles. Door rattles, 4cyl lacks power for the hills of PA worst when AC is on, but my biggest peeve is when descending down hills at almost any speed the car down shifts into 4th gear and then into 3rd which sends the rpm so high that the pistons could shoot through the hood, not good at all for the motor. i know what Toyota would say that it is to help in braking but i'd rather replace brakes than a motor. will i buy a Toyota again? not likely?

After i hit 189K the transmission went out. The engine still runs very strong, but it to needs to have two out of the four fuel air sensors replaced which would be $200.00 for one and $300.00 the other two if and when they would go out also cost $$$. The transmission dealer told me it would be around $3100.00 to fix trans, but the car is only valued at around $2000.00 to $4500.00 because of the mileage. I drove the car mostly on the highway putting on around 40K to 50K each year. Just pickup my new 2011 Camry 4 with a 6 speed trans LE model. Will update on this one soon, but as far as the old one goes she was good to me overall. Read the other reviews that i wrote from the beginning for info

After purchase and arriving home, some- one noticed a body brace hanging down. Then I began to notice how flimsy the doors, bumpers,etc. are. Then I began to compare how well doors, trunks, etc fit compared to other makes of autos. About 2 years ago I noticed how paint chips off without noticeable reason. In fact, immediately after purchase and close examination, I noticed chips on the hood and front. Ordered some touch up paint from dealer which didn't work and you would have thought I was buying caviar. Taking your car back to the dealer is too costly, unreal. I recently went in because car would vibrate when braking. Well, this cost over 550 dollars. And I doubt it.

Second, I had to replace my brakes after only 8 months. Since then, drilled/slotted rotors w/ ceramic pads still have 50% on them. Third, what the heck is up with the tires? I was literally forced to purchased sports car tires for this sedan! The originals lasted 70k but now I have 40k warranty tires that cost more than the originals AND I've lost an average of 6 mpg!

The worst thing about this car was the push button start. Never own one again, after 1 year the battery in the remote went , the car's computer said it didn't recognize it so wouldn't start, had to use the spare, it took three days to replace the battery, not good. Also when the temperature went below -15c the burglar alarm would go off, so would have to turn it off every half hour. Traded it in on a 09 Venza, key start, a much better car.

Bought this car thinking it would be a 10 year car. It is now 3.5 yrs old and don't think the car will last past its 5th birthday. The transmission is sick. The dealer isnt the greatest (Servco Pacific). To get warranty work done to fix the jerky transmission is like pulling teeth. Hawaii is warm and poorly designed ac gets smelly. To put a redesigned ac to prevent mold growing, they are going to charge me $338 for a $270 part. Last time I checked, Hawaii is part of the US but according to the dealer, they are not part of the us and can charge whatever they like. Trim panels and rattles will drive you crazy. If you buy used, look up all tech service bulletins and get it fixed!

Even though I bought this Camry used it was very low mileage and should have been as good as new. First it made strange downshift noise, which turns out to be a known problem and the dealer fixed it under warranty. Then there is occasional hesitation on accel as some others have pointed out, which actually have now disappeared after the recall repair. I have a 02 Sienna now 120K and drives like new, and when I crashed my beloved Highlander at 90K it also drives like new. I think with all the electronic tinkering and so called high-tech, the new cars are actually less reliable than the old. This is true for Honda, Nissan, and German cars also.

Just came back from the dealer after trading in my lemon.Trans burned out-yes a Toyota Camry with a burnt trans at 110,000 and I babied the car for the 3 years it lived.Quote was $4500 new $2000 used trans.This was after $1300 blown #1 manifold 3 months earlier and the blown oil line $400 mentioned here before. Car was a gem up to 75,000 then my check book opened. Trans slippage between 1st and 2nd gear occurred since new and 1 day trans just blew. My letter to Toyota will sit on the pile they already have. Too big too fast is causing Toyota to become Chrysler. FYI-dealer bought the car-$7000. I bought it new for $28,000 3 yrs and 110,000 mi ago

One had it and i picked the other. I have 40k and need tires.My wife drives very smooth. We took it on a 2000 mile trip and got like 38 mpg.

This is our second Camry. First was a 2000 model. After 6 great years with our first Camry we decided to purchase a newly designed 2007. We love the styling inside and out. The only real problem with our car is the oil consumption. at 80k is uses about a quart every 1500 miles. We did research and found other Camry owners with same problem or worse. Toyota has an oil consumption category in the owners manual that states it may use up to 1.1 quarts every 600 miles. NOW COME ON! Who else has that category? My family has owned Toyota for many years. We are now looking for a new vehicle. This makes it very difficult to buy another Toyota. Where has the quality gone?

Ok. So I went to buy a Honda at the Honda dealership and at the time I couldn't afford a new one and the old ones had to many miles. So they had an 07 Camry. I thought Toyota are safe. Why not? At first I had no problems. After about 2 years that's when the recalls came. I had 4 on my car. Then it just start falling apart. Poor transmission that was jerking. Cheap paint that was coming off every time I washed it. My wife was scared to drive it because of the recalls. So I decided to trade it for a new one. The Toyota dealership didn't want to give me anything for the trade. Talking about safety issues. WHAT! It's your car. Anyway, traded it for a Honda Accord. What I should have got the first time.

I have read a lot of bad reviews on here about other peoples Camrys but I have never had any problems. Gas mileage is unreal! Anytime anyone rides in my car they gives compliments about the interior. Overall I have been very pleased with my Camry. It's just sad that all the recalls have truly hurt Toyotas reputation. I think they are still the most reliable cars on the road though!

After 64K miles, and despite a rear- wheel bearing that went out at 37K miles ($450), I can say with confidence I'd buy this car again. It's extremely comfortable, gets great gas mileage, has plenty of power (V6) and most importantly, it's extremely reliable. I'm not crazy about the cloth door armrests, but the interior has held up extremely well and still looks new. Best of all, if I get stopped for speeding, I can always claim it was a stuck accelerator!

Purchased car 12/27/06 besides having the oil line replaced when I hit 120K and then again most recently for the three recalls which was the floor mats, oil line, gas pedal the car is still running strong. First tune up, trans serviced was done at 120K. No problems with the transmission so far. Make sure when it comes time to replace tires they are V rated. Had unknown tire dealer sell me H rated tires which he claims would be just as good, but come to find out the V rated tires are stiffer than the H rated tires which in turn when hitting pot holes damages the steel wheels.

Car is my office. 5,000 miles per month and 5,000 minutes on the bluetooth(echo/response needs improve). Drive in upper midwest and wish it had AWD. Not good in wet or snow. Tires-on third set. Got 75000 from factory Michelins and 100,000 from replacement Michelins(rotated every 5,000) Memory seats would be nice. Visibility is an issue that took some getting use to. No transmission problems. Love everything about Ricky but the snow and rain handling. Next car will be AWD, probably 2010 Subaru Lecacy 4 door sedan.

Sure my Toyota looks nice and is comfortable to ride in. My 2007 Camry has 78k miles on it so it's safe to say I drive it A LOT. Here's the problem things shake loose. The driver's side visor fell off, the curtain side airbag panel falls off constantly, the recalls galore and now today, the lock for the glove compartment fell off. This was the straw that broke the camels back for me. I'm selling it at a loss and buying a new car. One that holds up.

This my 3rd brand new Toyotas. After 2.5 yrs+ ownship, the 2955 miles on the odometer is my testimony of this car bought brand new in Aug 07 and most miles are going to the dealers to get things fixed,inc. sunroof adjustment,replacement of leather driver seat cover,disformed windshield molding,rattles/squeaks,SAFETY RECALLS. I don't want to drive the car at all. All the rattles/squeaks drive me crazy and want to just crash it. I am still driving my old rear-ended-legally- totalled-but-mechanically-perfect 97 V6 Carmy LE very day and enjoy every mile on it. But this 07 top-of-the- line is a very different story. With all the choices in the $30K+ segment, this is very likely my last Toyota/Lexus.

I owned total 4 generations of Camry, this 5th gen is not a Camry any more. I made a big mi to trade in my 2001 Highlander 1st: Transmission up-shift is a design flaw, and it could be dangerous when enter freeway by merging ramp, at speed 35mph , there will be no acceleration when you floorboard it, my Camry was like a horse refused to run, stood still. The fear was that the car behind might rear end you. 2nd: Interior looks so cheap, over-engineering the control panel. Heater is intermittently change temp it self. Speedometer is too bright , make it hard to tell whether the headlight is on or off. -The handle grip on driver side got broken for no reason. 3rd: Exterior bumper paint was chipped

I purchased two 2007 Camry's the same day; one for my wife and one for my daughter. My daughters has been great from day one, my wifes although it was always dependable had engine hesitation and the drivers sun visor continually fell off into the drivers lap every time you tried to move it up or down. With Toyota's current problems I decided to dump it and buy a Volvo. Yes, I took it back to the dealer several times and finally got tired of dealing with them - now ai don't have to.

I have had one previous Camry - a 1995 - and loved it. Traded it in at 195K miles for the 2007. This car has been a disappointment. Paint job is terrible, it scratches very easily and does not buff out. Interior made very cheaply. The big kicker is I have it in the shop right now and the transmission must be replaced - $2500! I didn't have the hesitation I hear many complaining about so not even a warning. It happened very suddenly and turned 100K miles just a couple weeks ago. Wish it was still under warranty. No more Toyotas!!

Having had Hondas since 1976 when the original Accord first was introduced and having no major problems with any of them, I made a poor decision to purchase a Toyota Camry. The Smart Start malfunctioned three times and left me stranded in far off places. The radio scanned on its own. The struts leaked and had to be replaced. And now a wheel bearing shot. $718.00. All the aforementioned, except the wheel bearing under 36,000 miles. The wheel bearing at 37,000 just after the warranty is up. Now the recall because of the accelerator. The car is a lemon.

I went to a car wash and the cheep paint came off the bumper, the trans has had problems, shifts weird, I have has 4 radios, and the power seat is broken. The dealership was no help at all, I had the car for 8 months with only 65k on it, traded it in for a 09 Honda Accord EXL V6 and Love it, I will NEVER buy a Toyota again!!!

My biggest complaint is the engine noise. I can hear the car even with the radio on. I compared it with a friend's Camry, same model and did not notice the noise. It has been to the dealer twice with this complaint, but they find nothing wrong with it. The leather seats in my '04 were much nicer. The trunk got tiny scratches on it the first time it went to the car wash. Overall, I agree with the other reviews in that I think Toyota got a little too relaxed about its quality rating.

This was the car of my dreams the new royal blue, it was awesome. Until one day I was trying to excel into oncoming traffic on I-40 the throttle hangs and I almost get hit. I took it in to the dealer, they did not know what to do about it and said they would not know until Sept. This was in June? So what am I suppose to do until then? In the meantime, it happens 3 more times. finally by sept a fix comes out to reprogram the computer and erace your driving patterns. Worked for a little while but it started again. This has been the most disappointing car I have ever had. My tires wear out in less than 20,000 and always on the back first.

In general I am pleased with my Camry. At 35k miles I have had no transmission problems that others mention, nor any other mechanical issues. My major complaint is the cheap rubber from the factory, the tires wore out long before normal expectation. I made the mistake of buying the tires for life warranty which is a joke; the tread is measured and will not be replaced until nearly bald way past most people's safety level. I was also not pleased with the noise, my prior Camrys were much quieter. I have owned two Camrys prior and several Celicas & Corollas as well. I will continue to drive Toyotas.

I owned a 89 Camry during my college days and that car went through some rough patches. I doubt this one would go through the same treatment. It would probably break in half before going through half of the stuff the 89 model went through. The exterior shape is a lot better than the 05-06 models which looked like grandma model. One thing I had noticed when car is still cold is that it shakes and the passenger seat and the dash start to rattle a bit but once warm and car on the move, it seems fine. Overall, no problems with the car.

I purchased my car based on having owned two other Toyotas in the past. I so regret buying this car. I should have waited and purchased an Acura. There is something seriously wrong with the transmission; it does not want to change and this is getting worse. Believe it or not my sun visor is broken on the driver side. Whoever heard of a sun visor breaking. Anyway whatever keeps it up, the spring, etc is broken, you can run your hand across the top and see that it has popped open. Of course I can get it fixed for about $200 at the dealer. I have a 2000 Camry and it is better than this one. Oh did I mention that the carpet I had replaced now has another hole in it. Never Again!

Bought this car based on owning other Toyotas. After slowing down, transmission has to be "kicked" to speed up. Doesn't have quick pickup to pass or after complete stop. Visibility terrible due to airbags and head rests. Can't believe any engineer would pass these defects. All tires replaced 26,000 and two more a year later. Every maintenance appointment brings a new problem. Ride seems comfortable and gas mileage fairly good averaging 26 city and 30 open road. Not like my 1996 model, though.

We have about 30000 miles on this car. It gets great gas mileage (around 24 city and 31 hwy). The seats are a bit short under the thigh and the ergonomics don't fit the average American as best they could. The car has become rather sloppy in the corners with pronounced body roll, taking several notches off the fun to drive category. It is a shame too, since that engine is smooth and provides fantastic power for a car this size. Biggest drawback...when accelerating we sometimes get a hard thump. Two Toyota dealers say that is a problem with the drive by wire system...and there is not anything they can or will do. Not sure this car is going to make it 10 years. Trading it in on a Honda.

The first few months were trouble free and couldn't have been more pleased. Winter arrived and the tires which are rated "All Season" felt like they were bald from the get go. Never buy Bridgestone. Tires wore after only 28,000 miles. The car felt as if the tranny was slipping in cold weather. You can hear it pop out of gear and then the RPMs drop to 800. The vehicle couldn't reproduce the problem at the dealership. I'm starting to lose a quart of oil between changes. Stay far away from Toyota.

I still like it after 60k miles. I got one built in Japan. I wonder if the people who have problems with rattles and transmission were built in the US. I have a trailer hitch and trailer and the car does everything I ask of it. I have run from Jersey to Michigan a number of times pulling a load. With no load, punch it while at highway speed and jump to 90mph and leave the traffic behind you. With the 2.4 engine you will not crack 3k rpm until 90mph. Great!

It has never been to the shop, I did replace the tires at 60000 and performed all scheduled maintenance. I have never had one single problem with it.

I bought my SE on Superbowl Sunday, 2007. I hardly use it. I've put 6k miles on it in 2.5 years. This is my third Camry ('93, '91) and while this is the first one I bought new, I think it doesn't compare to my old '93. The main problem I have with it is handling. I rarely, if ever, get a good, straight parking maneuver. The added front axle length makes it like driving a shopping cart. The '93, on the other hand, had nearly perfect handling and agility. Also, even though I rarely drive it, somehow I'm losing gas. I estimate around 100 miles to the tank, under 10 mpg. I will have it checked at the dealer. Would I recommend it? No. But, nearly everyone whose seen it loves it.

I bought the Camry because of Toyota reliability and quality. I have two Toyotas (a 2007 Tacoma that is ok, and a 1993 mr2 that is great) but so far I'm satisfied with them. But then came the Camry, what a junky car. Fuel economy is not that great (24mpg mostly highway on cruise control). Rattles from the dashboard that causes you to pump up the volume on the radio. That Camry has a severe lack of power that is not even funny. It feels like a three cylinder car without the fuel economy!!!! And trust me I am not exaggerating. The transmission, I don't know what to tell you, but good luck if you don't learn from my mistake. Just don't do it. I wish I would have read these reviews.

40800 miles Camry LE 4cyl 5A has been awesome. Just had tires rotated, all four struts leaking significantly and rear brake pads down to 2mm. All struts and rear brakes need replacement. Something is wrong, 4 struts go all at once, at 40000 miles and rear brakes shot? Front brakes usually are replaced twice before rears. Called Toyota Experience, very nice but said it was my problem, out of warranty. Should I question Toyota longevity and unwillingness to stand behind their product??? Toyota is aware of premature rear brake wear and leaking struts. They have issued TSB's. Right not I am not sure if I will go back to Honda.

The reputation of Toyota may have been hard earned in the past but now is quickly waning. The "organic" break pads went out at 36,000 miles. We lost the engine at 40,000 due to the engineers at Toyota putting a rubber piece of hose on the oil return to the top of the engine. Buyer beware! Stay away from this car and don't bank on Toyota any longer!

Watch out for ball-joint failures. Toyota won't cover. Dealer claims there's nothing wrong, but car won't go straight above 45mph. It rattles, the rear shocks thump loud and hard every bump (like the 1996). JBL radio is low quality cd, fm, and mp3 all sound the same. You can't open the rear windows above 30 because of the deafening wind noise. The large trans-tunnel gets hot and is tight to the drives right leg.

Don't like the car at all anymore. Hate the braking system. Funky surge after applying brakes, making you feel like you didn't apply them enough. Locked them up twice because of this. Problems with gears not shifting correctly. Dealer said it was a computer problem and they fixed it - NOT. Still having problems. Press the gas, RPMs go way up, hesitates shifting to the next gear, finally jerks into gear. Headrests are too far forward. Seat belt shoulder harness not low enough (even on lowest setting); cuts across my neck. Console lights dim at night, bright in the day. Passenger side carpet loose. Will be my first and last Toyota.

I'm really over this car... For $30k it rattles, the driver window sticks, the rear vents fell off, the tranny is already acting up at 22k miles. This Toyota was made in the USA and I wish I could say that with pride. It's a piece of junk as far as I'm concerned. The design is great, but the implementation of said design in the manufacturing process very poor. Initial quality was lacking and it's only getting worse... It's an OK car all n all. But for the money, I'm rather disappointed.

The side panel of the leather side is vinyl and cracks near the seam. I'm on my second replacement. I use the heated seat in the winter that may be causing problems? Also, the driver's side window is difficult to control how far opens.

I bought the Camry because of past reputation. That has gone completely down the drain for Toyota. Maybe they are using bad suppliers or are not engineering for superior reliability now. List of issues I and/or most 2007 owners had: Failed CV Joint 40k, uncorrectable dash rattle, poor tranny performance even with updated ECU flashes, failed brake components. The ride, comfort, and drive is as expected, however, the quality and reputation of yore are completely gone for the flagship Camry. Look at the Accord, they have none of these TSB problems! Big regret, should have waited for the new accord! Just paid $300 to fix the failed brake issue, feels like I own a Chevy!

2007 Toyota Camry - Gutless Wonder

I bought this car for the following reasons, in order of importance: 1) Price (based on features) 2) Safety - front and rear airbags (for the 3 kids) 3) 4-wheel disc brakes 4) Gas Mileage. 5) Reliability (its a Toyota!). The car is gutless, however, and should not be used for passing other cars (I have a 4 cylinder). There have not been any major issues, with the exception of some brake squealing in the beginning, which Toyota fixed. It serves the purpose in which I bought it, and I really do like the roomy interior and the new styling, but there really is no fun factor to it. I still dream of replacing the Camry spot in the driveway with a Corvette.

I've driven Toyotas forever, but I'm afraid this will be my last one. It's not a terrible car by any means, but the quality since they starting building them in America has really slipped. It hasn't broken down on me, but it seems every month there's something new that goes wrong. A panel falls off here, something else falls off over there. Every time I go in for service there's something else they have to replace. Last time it was issues with the steering linkage which still hasn't really been completely fixed. Transmission has a very strange hesitation when shifting. Again, no problems so big it has made the car undriveable, just constant irritations.

I have to agree with BCQVETTE, HUGE Mistake. I purchased my used 2007 a couple of months ago and have become increasingly disappointed. After driving it a few days, the interior squeaking and rubbing noises increased so much that I drove to Toyota and had the body shop manager check to see if it had been in a major accident. He didn't feel that it had. The squeaking has progressed to actually being very annoying and now the front end makes strange noises. I also had the leaking roof and the Toyota service dept. charged over $200 to clean the "drain tubing" around the sun roof that became clogged. They attribute this to the previous owner parking under trees. Excessive Paint chipping.

This is my first Toyota purchase. I am so disappointed. I wasted my money on this car. One day while my husband and I was in route to Atlanta, the car started jerking. I was asleep but the jerking of the car woke me up. We took the cruise off the car and it settled down. When we returned home, I took the car to a transmission specialist and found out that the transmission is slipping. I was told that the car was sick but not in critical condition. I then took it to the dealership where it was purchased and the head mechanic said that the car ran fine. I said, "Aah heck, it's another Mazda deal." I had almost the exact same problem with a lemon Madza Protege. My warranty will be out soon. HELP!

I have owned my Camry for over 2 years and 30,000 mi. Initially, I loved the car and couldn't drive it enough. Rattles, squeaking, and transmission troubles started shortly after. After several trips to the dealership, I am happy to report that everything has been taken care of. My wife and I were in a serious accident with it and while it was in the shop, we couldn't wait to get it back. Over the month it was in the shop, we rented several different cars and nothing seemed to measure up to the comfort and options of the Camry. Strongly recommend it, just make sure it has been taken to the dealership for the technical bulletins.

Like everyone else, I have the problem with the transmission. Toyota needs to do a recall before someone gets seriously hurt. I also have a problem with a film on the windshield. It's kind of spotty. I've tried to clean it; even took it to a car detail place, but it won't come off. This makes night time driving & driving in wet conditions day or night extremely difficult. The detail place told me they think it's a defect in the windshield. I'm taking the car into the dealership next week to see if they will correct these problems. Other than the above and the wind noise, I really love my Camry.

I purchased a 2007 Camry LE in 2006. I have always purchased Toyotas; buying this one was a mistake and will be my last Toyota purchase. I had to have the carpet in the front replaced because my heel went through it. I explained to the dealer that I have a 2000 Camry (still runs) and never got a hole in the floor; they replaced it after threats. The car does not shift smoothly; hesitates. The paint is chipping so badly, the tires wore too quick. I faithfully get this car serviced, as soon as I can afford to I am going to get a Honda or Acura. My underinflated tire light keeps coming on, according to the dealer I can put nitrogen in the tires to prevent this problem.

Initially, I thought that I was making a good investment as I was the owner of a 1994 Camry in the past. My 1994 Camry was worth every penny I paid for it. My 2007 Camry is NOT worth the money I've invested in it. I paid for quality & all I've gotten thus far is NOT quality . The paint job is terrible. I've gotten too many chippings and scratches. You can't even touch the car unless it will get scratched. I just recently had an accident & now after reading the reviews, It appears the skidding was due to the tires. Tires don't go bad in less than 2 years. I don't feel safe in this car at all. Toyota is saving a lot of money on our expense. I used to believe in the Toyota but NO MORE!

I'm happy with my Camry. Coming from mini-vans, this is like a sports car for me! The V6 seems like it is a "must" for this particular car. It has a lot of get-up and go. I just had it serviced at 20,000 miles and was told I needed an alignment because my tires were wearing unevenly. I do mostly highway driving and have not hit any potholes, so we're not sure why this happened. I see from other reviews that there are problems with tires needing to be replaced at 20,000 miles. Also, my son has a 94 Camry and the engine runs so quietly. The 2007 is a lot noisier.

I purchased my Camry two years ago and am in love with it today as much as when I drove it off the lot. It handles beautifully on dry pavement or snow. It floats on the road, handles like it's heavy and substantial, but I get great gas mileage - around 30 mpg. It's also very easy to park; turns on a dime. I do a lot of interstate driving, and it's by far the best car I've owned (prior cars were Jetta, Civic, 2 Accords, Altima and Prelude). If you're considering a Camry, you won't regret getting one!

My wife and I purchased an '07 Camry in August of 2006. When it's not in the shop, the car runs great. The interior is nice and roomy and the exterior design is beautiful. Unfortunately, we have taken the car to the shop for the sixth time in two years today. It has been in for a rattling sunroof pan within 1 month of purchase; 3 trips for a transmission issue; the radio quit working this summer and needed replaced and now the oil line for the VVTi has ruptured. Per the service manager, Toyota claims that oil from anywhere but Toyota is formulated differently and will erode the line to the point of rupture. The power train warranty will not cover the repair. Next time, I buy Honda!

I have always had the best experiences with a Camry, and my 2007 is no exception from that! I bought it new in 2007 and I have loved it every time I drive it. It is very reliable and comfortable. I love how easily it maneuvers and always runs very quietly. It is so spacious throughout and the way the colors are done inside is nothing short of genius because it is so easy on the eyes! Also, I have close to 30,000 miles on it now and I only need to have my tires rotated every other oil change because there is always perfectly even tread wear on them. This is by far the best car I have ever had!

I'm happy with my 07 Camry. It's very comfortable and a quiet ride with low levels of road and wind noise. I drive (not own) quality cars and I can attest to the fact this car rides as well as some cars costing considerably more. As my car is only a 4 cylinder version, performance is adequate to good. There are a few things that irritate me. When one floors the gas pedal, not a lot happens, which can prove to be a bit embarrassing in certain situations. Maybe it's some electronic trickery to overcome the lack of traction control! The transmission leaves a lot to be desired. Driving in hilly and twisting roads is hard work maybe a sixth gear would solve this problem.

Ok, this is the first time I have owned a Camry and I gotta tell ya it is very nice. I did have a problem with the transmission but took it in and they reprogrammed the 2 computer chips in there and WOW what a difference that made. I can't even feel my car shift anymore. I bought it with 30k on it. I do not see where there is wear on the tires like others have stated on here. I did get the "diamond gloss" put on the paint from the dealer and wow that is a great thing to have. It does protect you paint and the uvb rays and you don't have to wax your car for 5-6 yrs. It is well worth it. Bugs come right off too and ti will also protect I the salt when it snows. Best thing I ever did!

This is the first foreign car I have had, and I couldn't be more impressed without a hybrid engine. Once you learn the responsiveness of the gas pedal, you can get either the performance or mileage you want out of a 2.4L 4-cylinder. I get a consistent 22mpg in suburb driving and have hit 26+ on nothing but freeway at speeds of 70-75ish. The steering and controls are awesome. The sound system looks great and sounds great, plus it has a hidden power and audio in jack for iPods or satellite radio. The folding back seats allow extra room when needed (help a friend move). The climate controls are very simple yet adjustable. I like them more than my mom's Avalon. Overall, an awesome car.

The structural integrity is good, as the car was rear ended hard, which I then learned about the whiplash protection system in the car. Interior still has too much hard plastic, especially the steering wheel, which has a raised crease hitting on the fingers as a constant reminder. Comfort is great, mileage is good overall, better on the road than expected (35 avg mpg at 70 mph) but less than expected around town (23 mpg avg), compared to my 1999 Camry. Spend the extra for upgraded stereo system as the base unit and speakers are very poor and tinny sounding. Downshifting on grades is annoying, but overall car is good with decent mileage, and good value for the money.

I have had it for almost two years now. Overall it's a nice car to own. Reliability is excellent, but there are several annoying small problems. First, the car sways at any speed, making the driver and passenger move left and right. Second, the interior designer should be fired. You can't reach the window switch--it's hidden behind the armrest. Third, the gear shifting handle become loose a little even in the driving gear. Fourth, the coin tray makes noise (not by the coins). Fifth, bad acceleration

This is not a Lexus, you get what you pay for. Most disappointing is tire wear and alignment, I think this car has a basic flaw, the tires showed excessive wear at 20,000 miles and is pretty much gone at 30,000. This despite two alignments (at my own expense). The dealer says it’s normal.

I purchased my Camry LE approximately one year ago, and I must say that my overall impression of the vehicle is average at best. The transmission, or more specifically, the power transfer is scary. There is a full 3-4 second delay when accelerating/passing, and it is downright dangerous on the interstates. The tires are noisy at 20K miles, unless it can be attributed to something more serious like wheel bearings. The reprogramming of the transmission shifting seemed to help for awhile, but it's reverted back. It's also bad when decelerating, then re-accelerating. I'll probably sell it to avoid an expensive transmission repair after the extended warranty expires.

Acceleration is adequate, but torque is all but absent! Too much weight for the old four cylinder engine. The transmission/computer is a major issue. Unexpected downshifting on pimple sized grades when in cruise, upshifting when decelerating, peculiar hold back sensations when at low speeds are among the problems experienced by me and, obviously, others. Poor mileage is yet another factor as is the numerous blind spots resulting from the appearance over proper design issues. Dealers do not handle the transmission matters well as I've had no luck in clearing up the inadequacies. Is Toyota losing control as they grow in size or is their arrogance the major problem? My first & last Camry!

The engine, ride and gas mileage is great. No problem. But the rest of the car is cheaply made. The paint on the bumper started to peel. Dealer had to replace the bumper. The hood has a ring where the paint is so thin it looks silver color. Dealer said they didn't see anything. I have been looking around at other Camrys in the parking lots and notice they have a lot of scratches from thin clear coat and everyone else has funky bumpers. Take a good look at some of them and see what you think. The blue tooth is crap and it cuts out. When I talked to the dealer they said it was my Verizon service and maybe the phone. I have purchased two different phones and it still does it. A big mistake getting it.

On long trips the 2007 Camry LE we purchased does great, except when I set the cruise. I noticed it shifted hard going up hills. When driving around town I noticed a serious hesitation upon acceleration in intersections. I honestly feared of getting broadsided. After researching on the internet I found that the computer for the transmission needed reprogrammed (flashing). This did the trick... my car now shifts very smoothly, does not hesitate and when the cruise is set, you can hardly tell it has shifted. The other thing I have noticed is a distant helicopter sound. This started about a month after purchased. We think it is the tires, but are not sure. The dealership can't figure it out.

The car overall is a great car with many good features. It gets great gas mileage for a larger car. It is surprising how spacious the interior is on a long trip. Its nice to drive a car with the body kit and sporty feel, but still get great fuel economy. The top speed of the car is much higher than most domestic cars too.

This is my 3rd Toyota and I have always been pleased with the cars and performance. I am disappointed with this vehicle. The transmission is jerky and the gas mileage is terrible. I have never gotten better than 19 mpg. The car has been maintained very well and driven conservatively. The dealer cannot find anything wrong. I would not have purchased this vehicle if I was aware of the actual poor mileage.

I like how it looked when I got the car, but with high gas prices, I am very disappointed with the gas mileage. I am about to take it in for the 15K service.

I love the way this car looks, drives and handles. However, the quality is absolutely terrible for a Toyota. It has major transmission issues, which I have had fixed twice. It has awful rattles and squeaks in the moonroof, dash, and rear deck. The dealer has tried to fix them, but the noises won't go away. I will keep this car, but I hope Toyota improves their quality to their older standards of the mid 90s.

I am the orignal owner and currently have 40,000 miles. Except for a defective tire, I have not had any problems! My transmission works seamlessly and there are no quality issues whatsoever. I have never averaged less than 26 mpg in the city and typically hit 32 mpg on the highway. The power is phenomenal and the sound system (JBL) is better than any factory system I've heard (including Bose). Ok, I will admit that it lacks some of the fun-to-drive aspects of some other sporty cars. but it makes up for it in everything else.

I purchased a Camry LE approximately 2 months ago, it's a smooth comfortable ride. I bought it certified preowned with 30,000 miles, but it runs same as new. I noticed some complaints about lack of speed, or hesitation, so far I've had no issues. The car is very responsive to acceleration, VVTI is a technology not everyone understands, for ex: VVTI takes your driving habits into consideration, if you are going 45 to 50 mph, and take your foot off the accelerator in a sudden manner, instead of slowly releasing accelerator, it senses you will be pressing your brakes soon so you will notice the engine automatically slows down your speed automatically. This is my second Camry, and is EXCELLENT!

I bought my 2007 Camry in Aug 2007 and it seems like I am having issues with reliability. The transmission is "driving" me crazy. It shifts erratically between gears and it stays in a lower gear when it should be shifting to a higher gear. Hesitation during acceleration is a problem. While the transmission is downshifting you can feel it thumping through the gears and an audible banging sound can be heard coming from the trans. The dealership said there was nothing wrong. The radio display has gone dark on me. After tapping the dash directly over the radio it comes back on. I even had a problem with the horn sounding when the headlights were switched on. None of these issues are resolved.

My '07 4 cylinder Camry SE gets 19.1 MPG. Every advertisement from my window sticker to Edmunds.com says this 2007 Camry should get 24 to 33 MPG. We are not guessing. We have recorded every single gas up on a spreadsheet, it's simple math. For 10 months our Camry has averaged 19.1 MPG. We went back to the dealer. After three visits they tested the vehicle and said nothing was wrong and it must be our poor driving habits. Please note: We have two other vehicles that we drive the same way, gas up at the same stations, and drive on the same roads through the same weather conditions. Our '02 Sante Fe/6 cyl gets 22 MPG, Our Impala/6 cyl gets 25 MPG. PS. Just updated our gas ups....18.9 MPG.

I shopped for months for a new car & picked the Camry. I originally loved it. I thought great mileage & I loved the look of the new Camry. Now I am second guessing myself. Terrible mileage!! 23 mpg in the city & tranny seems sluggish or hesitant. Some of the thing inside seem cheap. If I had known then what I know now I would have bought an H3. If I'm going to get mileage this bad I may as well look good doing it.

Real good car. Great fuel economy. The orginal tires will only get 20K miles. Be careful putting in a carseat with a top strap. It you put it in like toyota tells you you may wind up with a permanent strap indentation on your rear headrest. The thing that is missing is the rear DOES NOT FOLD down on the SE model. I know it is for the sport tuning in the suspension, but I need more versitality in my cars. I should have bought the LE with the styling kit.

I selected the Camry for its comfort and reliability. My old 1989 Camry is still running well giving great mileage (40+mpg highway) with minimum maintenance. This new Camry is indeed very comfortable with quiet and soft ride. This car coasts well with no pedal as is the old one. Usage is too short for any words on reliability. Actually a little turned off with the new styling. What I dislike most about this new model as well as most new sedans these days is much reduced visibility, big blind spots, thick body and thin windows. Styling is to blame. I have to get the body size molding from eBay because the dealer cannot provide them. Mileage is mediocre at an average of 25.

My sunroof developed a rattle during winter. I have taken it to dealership in excess of 10 times and even when they cannot fix it. Now that the roof has been touched so many times it has also started to leak and I got a puddle in my lap. The dealerships response- cannot duplicate the roof leak. Cost cutting has gone too far at Toyota. Otherwise the car is great with its feel and quietness. The 4 cylinder does not get good mileage at 70 MPH plus. Below it you can expect to get good mileage only if you do not have too many hills. The new transmission shifts too frequently to truly optimize gas consumption.

Unfortunately, I have had almost 40 problems with the car since day one, and I haven't even reached the 1 year mark yet! Problems include parts falling off like grab handles and panels on the inside AND outside, brakes constantly squeal even after four dealer visits, radio/head unit failed, squeaks, rattles, etc. While I love the design, the poor components, sub-par fit-and-finish, poor quality control, and unreliable work on the part of dealership techs will make me question the quality of any future Toyota vehicle. I love the car's visual and aesthetic design, but quality is just as important and for that reason, I would NOT recommend the new Camry to anyone!

This was my 2nd camry. After owning an '03 with no problems I expected a great car. Boy was I wrong. The transmission is the absolute WORST, it is very dangerous and can cause an accident. I took it back to the dealer to fix which they did but after a couple of months it was back to being very slugglish. My power windows stopped working, radio had to be replaced, rattles, rattles and more rattles. The plastic interior looks and feels cheap. I have since gotten rid of this car and upgraded to an 08 Infiniti G35 (won't buy another Toyota anytime soon). I don't miss this car at all!

I bought the car due to the great Toyota legacy, however I soon found this to be untrue. Six spd tranny shifts rapidly out of 1st to 2nd within 10 feet if not mashing the gas down. Just plain crappy down-shifting when coming to a stop. The front end wheel hops on slippery surface when accelerating quickly. Throttle hesitation always, service says no fix for it. It's driving habits, ha! No room under the foot pedals for my feet when cruise control activated. Blue-Tooth to the radio via my cell phone is poor reception and signal outgoing poor. Auto speed volume on the radio doesn't work at all. Dual climate control very inconsistent. Noisy underside of car when slush hits it

I bring it in for the rear end spring noise and the still rattling dashboard. They won't fix it, service mgr and I road test car and we can't hear the rattles. It was raining all night so it most likely made the dash more pliant. They say I need to leave it over night next week when it's cold so they can test it in the morning. They refused to apply 2 TSBs even though its under warranty. I cant wait till I get rid of this car.

I gave up a 1992 Camry LE which was as quiet as a coffin and purchased a 2007 XLE Camry which has "whooshing air noise" in the cabin depending upon how windy it is outside and which way the car is going. Of course, I worked with the service manager of the Toyota dealership who was very nice to me but probably labeled me a nut. I really am very disappointed in this Camry and will trade it in shortly. Doesn't anyone build a quiet car out there for around 30K that used regular gas and gets good gas mileage? I hope someone from Toyota reads my comments. The Camry has become the second car since the Subaru is much quieter.

I purchased a 2007 Camry because of the looks of the redesigned model and because of the "legendary" Toyota quality and reliability. As of today, I am a bit disappointed in the build quality of the car. First of all, the interior has way too many cheap plastic parts (like the cheap plastic center piece that houses the clock.) Second, during this past winter, an annoying dashboard rattle has developed in two places.(by the right speaker & behind the instrument panel). Also, Toyota has continued to make the Camry larger, but has failed to increase the horsepower of the 4 cylinder. Therefore, more RPMs are needed to accelerate which kills my fuel economy.

Best way to describe this car is to say that is is obvious that the engineering was sound, but the execution (build quality and materials) is terrible! I've had the same transmission problems/hesitation issues as everyone else. Had replaced ECU, and 3 software loads, and problem is finally fixed. 3 blown struts at 30,000 miles, interior trim coming loose and rattling/squeaking, stains on paint, and bug splats taking paint off, premature/uneven brake wear, on 3rd windshield (they are incredibly thin).

Service dept. ignored any knowledge of this problem until about 6 months ago. They finally had me bring it in for a computer update regarding the shifting, which cleared the problem for the most part. Still does some surging at times. Radio display went out several times before radio was replaced. Rattles inside. Rear bumper popped out on left side, I just popped it back into place.

I bought this car because I owned two Toyotas before (Avalon, Corolla). This car has been very disappointing. The squeaks and rattles are awful for a Toyota, feels more like a Chevy inside. The transmission doesn't shift correctly, and it has almost caused me to get into an accident twice. Except for the looks, this car is not making me very happy.

I love it, but...

I got this car fairly early in the year. I love the color of the exterior and interior (although I'm not fond of having a light interior having kids). I'm pretty content with pretty much everything the car offers except the common issue of the transmission that doesn't want to seem to work when you need it. I often find myself stressing when the car won't accelerate when I need to go fast in certain situations. After reading other reviews, I have found out that there is a "fix" for the problem. I called the dealership and have an appointment for an oil change, tire rotaion and they say there is a "fix" which may not show much change. I'm hoping it will for my family's safety.

Love the car, but...

This car is nearly perfect when compared to other cars in this class regarding interior dimensions, visibility, exterior styling, etc. The SE V6 specifically has a great balance of power, smooth ride, and is exceptionally quiet even on rough roads. However I have had nearly 25 problems with the car in the short time since I have purchased my car. Unlike the common concerns with the transmission, all of my concerns/problems are with everything other than the drivetrain. Several parts in the interior rattle including the sunroof and some parts of the dash, the radio randomly will eject CDs, etc. Too many to list! Toyota did a great job with design but forgot about quality!

Bought car for toyota reliability. (Not real impressed). Nice looking car and good gas mileage. decent power for a 4 cylinder, but a dangerous hesitating transmission that toyota does not seem to want acknowledge or fix. Nice gauges but the blue lights around the radio are way too bright at night for me. I ended up trading for a Nissan Altima which I like much better so far as of 10,000 miles.

I first posted on Nov. 5 and was lukewarm on the car. Since then I've gotten used to it and feel better about it. I've adjusted my driving to deal with the acceleration hesitation, altho I see now there is a fix for it. But I do want to say it performs really well in bad weather, of which there is plenty in NYS. It's much more stable than my 1996 Explorer on snow, in freezing rain, slush, even ice, and so far I haven't had any repair issues (fingers crossed).

I bought myself a car that has been back for several defects, including rattles from dash area. Apparently a service bulletin was issued by Toyota, but I have had it in 4 times and it is still rattling over road bumps. I had to have the trunk lid adjusted, the rear bumper cover reattached, a door arm rest cover replaced as it was shipped from the factory with a chip off the fake plastic silver. The front A pillar cover had to be be reattached as it was loose causing another constant rattle. The fit and finish that i thought Japanese car makers were supposed to be famous for did not pertain to my car. Irregular gaps in dash area. The leather on the seats seems very cheap. 4 cylinder is weak.

The I4 has no power and drives like a typical 4 cylinder. The ride is loud and not comfortable. This was my first Camry and will be my last as I do not feel a 6 cylinder will improve the ride. It is very stylish inside and out, especially with the new design. I drive 2 hours to work each day and it is just not comfortable to me.

Loved the 2002 Camry it was a good match up engine/tranny. The 2007 is a disappointment; the tranny seems to have a mind of it's own shifting up and down at will. There is a very dangerous hesitation when pick up speed is needed quickly such as merging onto the freeway (someones going to get killed if Toyota doesn't fix this). It's as though the engine literally quits for a few seconds and when it comes back to life it's in low gear roaring like crazy.

This is a fun car to drive. It's amazingly peppy, rides well on highways (not on rough gravel, though). Lots of room, excellent stereo, good controls. Three problems: 1, it's hard to see out the back because of the roof pillars and high headrests. 2, near 75mph, trans kicks down from 5th to 3rd on even moderate hills; should kick to 4th first. 3, TERRIBLE design on 8-way adjustable driver's seat; seat is short front to back and edge hits mid-thigh (and I have short legs), raising seat actually pushes seat forward instead of up at the end, not giving enough leg height to accelerator, only front of seat angles up and cuts off circulation at mid-thigh. Had 5 Camrys, only bad seat I've seen.

OK, Ive had my Camry for over a year now. The gas mileage is still good, cant give specifics but for a V6, its good. The driver seat has been re- padded 2Xs and is still horribly soft, for me. The dash rattles have been 'fixed' twice, NOT. still rattles and its frustrating. The car is roomy, pretty quiet and gets good MPGs, the engine is awesome but the chassis is not up to the task at all. Read the editors review here. I had my OEM Turanzas wear out at 14K and was lucky to get local Bridgestones to gimme a mileage warranty adjustment, got new tires for $290.00 instead of $500+ This car is a disappointment.

We went with Toyota due to its history as a great car. Went with the SE w/V6 for performance. We had it in the shop the first week we got it. Had to take it back 3 times before they replaced the rear shocks and the noise did go away. However, we have developed a cabin noise in the front. All and all, I'm not sure Toyota is what it was. The fit and finish in the cabin is not the level of quality I expected. We have had the car a year, and I think you should shop around before you buy, because Toyota is over-rated.

The performance of a V6 is awesome. Handling is great. The windshield wiper design with the water spray is horrible. The water spray is blocked by the wiper on the left side when it comes out initially. The interior looks good but feels cheap compared to my 1997 LE camry. The transmission is the worst ever for camry. It downshift to much causing engine flare and I had problem with the reverse gear, but the up gear shift is great and smooth. Too bad it is not close to perfect.

The '07 Camry is a great car for the money. The interior is large, the controls are well placed and simple. The ride is quiet and comfortable. This is not the fastest car on the road if you are looking for 0-60, but it accelerates just fine. I have the 4 cylinder with manual transmission. My car was built in Kentucky with 75% North American part content. I have had zero issues, except the hesitation when accelerating that everyone is complaining about. This is easy to fix - I took mine to the dealer, and 35 minutes later, it was fixed. It is just a simple engine control computer reprogramming.

Very good, but a few minor complaints.

I've had no significant transmission problems. There is some hesitation when starting quickly from a stop (if there is a fix for this, I will likely have it done). Other than that the tranny has been very good. No reliability problems of any kind thus far with nearly 18K on it. My mileage averages 25, but it easily gets 30 or over on the highway. Overall the smoothness, ride and handling is excellent. Power is adequate for a 4cyl, and just about what I expected.

To start, I have three cars and all are Toyotas. I have 2000 Toyota Avalon XLS, a 2006 Toyota Avalon limited and a 2007 Toyota Camry LE. I do not recommend a Camry at all because it has too many flaws. Styling is bland, the engine isn't strong at all, and the car doesn't deliver good comfort while driving it. Furthermore, the steering feel is awful and so is the handling. My Avalons are far bigger yet, they have better handling and driving cars than this Camry. The seats aren't comfortable either. I don't like driving this car at all because it drives awfully. Instead of purchasing a 4cyl Camry or even a 6cyl model, I truly recommend an Avalon XL which is a far better car all around.

I've had my 2007 Camry XLE V6 w/nav for a lil over 60 days now. WOW! Its a LOT of bang for the buck! I compared it to the '08 Accord b4 I bought and the Camry won! Camry has a 6 speed tranny over Accord's 5, tip-tron style shift, (which I dig), "smartkey" system, voice command sys and touch screen to operate the nav sys. Accord has none of these features and its the same price for the top of the line. This car has been so much fun! Its fast! Holds the road nicely, looks good inside and out (get a tint), rides beautifully, is nearly silent inside and has a rockin JBL system too! If you can spend the extra $$$ get the loaded one, drive and compare, its a baby Lexus!!!

Interior noise level is unacceptable - this is one noisy car on the freeway. Driver's seat hurts my back. Air recirculation button randomly goes off.

This car looks great and the build quality is good. It is relatively comfortable inside. But it has a severe hesitation problem on acceleration and my Toyota dealer won't acknowledge it or do anything about it. And I've never gotten close to the EPA estimated MPG - the first time I can say that for any car I've owned. It's rated for 34 on the highway and the best I've ever gotten is about 29. Unacceptable for a car that's as much of a dog as this one. I get better mileage with my BMW 325i. Though this car will last many years, I'm suffering from serious buyer's remorse.

The main reason for this review is to add the "broken in" gas mileage. I first reported at the start that the 4 cylinder Camry got 34.4 at 70 MPH, this in May 2006, highway, 24-mpg all around driving. After 24,000 miles I am getting 36.5 mpg at 70 miles an hour, highway. At 75mph I get 34.5 mpg. At 55 mph I get over 50 mpg. The car has like 4 times the power of our old VW beetles. So, to us, this car really flies. My 93 Cadillac has more power, but my wife's Camry rides and drives better, believe or not. I still love my old Cadillac, but the Camry is really a great car. It's also easier on my wife's back on trips.

V6 with 6-speed automatic is excellent - very smooth, quick to downshift, and very fast. The acceleration is great. There are too many design flaws. The front seat cushions are way too short - I feel like my legs are falling off the edge. Power adjuster needs more range The front doors are a long reach to close once you're inside. You have to lean half way out the car to close them. The power window lockout switch also locks the 3 passenger window switches on the driver's side! When I lock the windows, I don't want the kids and dogs to operate them, but I want to have control over them. The A/C compressor and recycle buttons are too easy to engage. They need a firmer detent.

This thing is soooo fun! I traded a CE model for this 4cyl SE and it's a biiiig difference! I hear people talk about the acceleration in the 4 cyl but this is my second 4 cyl and I haven't noticed anything at all (and I drive pretty fast). It's still just as smooth a ride as any camry but now all I want to do is hit corners at 60 mph just because I can. I even tried the accord and the new altima and neither one came close to the camry se after you actually give them a good drive. Toyota is definitely the way to go no matter what model obviously. I liked my CE model a lot and but I'm 26 years old and I love how people keep looking at me and my sexy car now.

I bought the Camry based on looks but test drove the car on flat lands. In hills, the engine is way under powered and tends to lag badly getting on freeway or in most traffic situations. The vehicle does not get as good of mileage in town as I thought. However, freeway driving is great, smooth and good milage. Because of the gushy suspension, poor gas milage and sluggish 4-cyl engine, I sold the car and bought a Nissan Altima Hybrid.

I'm not as happy with this Camry (my second) as I expected to be. It's a pretty good car, reliable, comfortable as far as it goes, but limited rear visibility because of high rear bumper, and a problem with its computer "learning" my "driving style." This means that if I'm an easygoing driver, but need quick acceleration for a situation, it hesitates while it thinks it over, and only then gives me speed. This has happened twice - one of the annoying (also dangerous) "nanny" features I mention below. Also, the exterior design is pretty ugly - Camry had an elegant and quite beautiful design for years; now it's chunky and blobby.

I love this car. After two 7-series BMWs, I couldn't afford the maintenance/fun ration of a German car anymore. The only significant issue I have with the Camry is that the paint on the hood is problematic. It pits and flakes easily - first noticed after 3 months. Performance is strong, handling is fun, spacious enough for me - at 6'2" and 240 lbs. Camry's history of reliability was key to purchasing it, but the 6 cyl SE version is a beast!

I enjoy my car. It's not a luxury car by any means but it is definitely better than any of Toyota's other models. It drives really smooth, but I have a 4 cylinder so it lacks power. Nevertheless, it is still a cool car for a college kid. I love the exterior, but the interior is nothing to brag about. Its quite simple, which is fine with me. The gas mileage is not what its cracked up to be. The corolla is the best toyota car when it comes to gas per mileage.

I've had 2 Camry's before the one, and bought it thinking that the quality standards known to a Toyota would still remain excellent. This assumption was my first mistake. It's now apparent that Toyota quality took a nose dive. I get terrible fuel economy (19/20 in the city, 25/26 highway ...with a 4 cylinder!), even though it's rated at 24/34. The transmission is crap, and erratically shifts despite modest acceleration and conservative driving habits. I've already taken the car back to the dealership 4 times for rattling, creaking, and clicking in the dash and center console (granted I've had the car for 3 months). They never fixed it, but instead said that it's normal.

I drive in the Baltimore, MD beltway traffic and have found myself to be rather relaxed due to the visibility out all the windows, the potent 4 wheel disc brakes, and the beefy 3.5 liter engine. Merging into the flow of traffic is a snap and the ride is quite smooth. I got the 6 disc CD player and the 400+ watt system sounds amazing. The 7 airbags, the traction/braking control option, and the size of the car itself lends to a very confident and safe ride. I would recommend it to anyone with a family (roomy) or single (classy). Way to go Toyota.

When I was looking for a new car I fell for the Toyota hype since I'd never owned one and figured it'd be a safe bet - while it has some redeeming features it's pretty underwhelming overall. Mine suffers from the tranny slip (or "flare") on the 3-4 upshift when cold, build quality is good but nothing like the Toyota-hype I was expecting, as it has its share of squeaks and rattles just like a 10 year old Chevy. Power is great, but tranny hesitates when the gas is floored, kinda like it's asking its driver "are you REALLY sure you wanna do that?" Watch out for torque steer as it's quite prominent too - again, not expected in a Toyota. Not a bad car mind you, but overall a disappointment.

I have had 3 other Toyota's and I only wish I had read these reviews before I wasted my money on this car. The SE with the Ground Effect package looks very nice, that is where it stopped. After almost getting "T" boned for the 3rd time in a single day and the Dealership telling me I was his only one complaining, I sold it. I tried to get them to do the Computer test, but they told me nothing was wrong and my VIN number was fine and already had all the fixes on it (it was made in July 2007). I had it for 6 weeks and 4500 miles. I did not feel safe in it and sold it to another dealership. I am taking the loss knowing I should have done more homework before buying this car.

Great so far

Picked up the car in Maryland and drove it back to New Orleans 2 weeks ago. Great ride. Very little fatigue on the highway. Drove 500 miles one day and could have driven 800. Great highway cruiser. 32 mpg at average 68 mph through the high hills of VA. Seating supportive but not hard. Passenger seat higher and better than 2008 Accord. No sign of the transmission problem people have complained about, but I'm not expecting a Porsche. Manual shift option works fine if you need it. People complain of wind noise and it is noticeable at 75, but that's because there's so little road noise. On the Accord, the road noise would drown it. Only 2,000 miles so far, but I'm happy.

I've had my V-6 since 12-06. 13000 miles. The driver seat is still soft and mostly uncomfortable. MPG is great for a 6cyl. The tranny hesitates but not frequently and does not flare but we don't use the cruise control. I have tons of scratches and the paint does seem thin. The biggest complaints are the softness of the seat, the super cheap interior dash plastic and the location of the door pulls, they render the door arm rests useless. New problem showed up and my tires are more than half gone. Car has 13K on it, that's unacceptable. I cant sink $400 on tires now. Unfortunately I will trade this in on something in the next year or so, maybe a used TL.

This is a great car. Performance is excellent. I got the 6 cylinder because I am used to power - prior car Camaro Z28, and I am not disappointed. The ride is comfortable and it seems to ride a little higher than the average sedan, which I like. It's easy to get in and out of. I feel like I have a luxury car. No rattles or transmission problems. The interior looks great to me. This interior is as good or better than others in it's class.

After a year of complaining, I dumped the 2007 for a 2000 Camry. The 2000 is a much better vehicle to drive. I don't have whiplash from the tranny changing gears every 5 seconds, nor do I have pieces of cardboard wedged into the dash to stop the rattles.This car was a complete disappointment. I will bet it will go down as one of those years to avoid. How could this car been voted Car of The Year?

After driving my car almost 20,000 miles I have grown disappointed with the transmission hesitation problem as it did not show during the test drive. The problem becomes almost imperceptible if you use premium gas only, but it becomes annoying after a while. Overall not a bad vehicle, good ride on the highway. Most likely I will be trading for a V6. Still looking around for a good choice.

I was surprised at how this car didn't perform as well as my wife's '05 Camry. It had hesitancy during acceleration, bursts of excessive RPMs in cruise control, and only average mileage. I showed my dealership an Edmunds customer review detailing an effective reprogramming he had done at his dealership, and was told my dealer had received word of this recall just 2 days before I came in. They performed the reprogramming, and solved my problems. We are now as happy with our new Camry as we have been with the older one.

I have the 2007 SE 2.4 with stability control, bluetooth and the upgraded JBL system. First let me say that the engine performance of my car relates directly to the brand of gas used, not all gasoline is created equal.

The other features of this car especially the JBL system are winners. The car is a winner.

I have the transmission problem. I have had the car back to the dealership several times, as well as having the factory rep working to fix my problem. Finally they told me there was nothing else they could do for me. So I am stuck with a product I am not satisfied with and they don't seem to care. I can assure you I will never own another Toyota product just because of the way they (Corporate) treated me. They want everyone to believe there is no problems when Toyota knows full well there is. I will seek to unload this problem onto someone else and go back to products I never had problems with.

I have only 10,000 miles on my new Camry LE and have gone through 2 windshields. The first one was when I bought the car new I had already signed the papers when I noticed the the windshield was damaged the dealer replaced it and I was satisfied. I do a lot of highway driving and recently have incurred a crack that is about 8 inches long on the passenger side of the windshield from a very small stone. I have also notice a 1/4 inch chip just behind the mirror assuming from another stone. I have owned a lot of vehicles over the years and have never experienced this much problems with windshields. It has to be more than bad luck. The glass appears to be too thin.

Performance was great. 29 mpg overall. No transmission problems as reported by so many others. I've had 3 BMWs and only one of them could offer a more comfortable ride than the Camry.

Over the years, I have driven almost every car made (either owned or rental cars on business). Our 2007 Camry 4 cylinder is our third Camry and we expected a decent car. The car has extremely dangerous hesitations and absolutely terrible gas mileage. We have had it back to the dealers for several checks and no one can do anyting to correct the "wonderful, new, high-tech, drive-by-wire" system. We discovered that new does not always mean better. I strongly suggest that anyone considering buying the new Camry should shop around and be made aware of current faults. This is, by far, the worst car we have ever owned and I can't wait to get rid of it. I'll sell it cheap.

After owning many Toyotas and Lexus, this Camry is the first Toyota I did not like. The engine/transmission was a Jekyll/Hyde affair. Sometimes it hesitated, sometimes it was overly sensitive, sometimes it was OK. The ride is best described as pitch and bob. As long as the road was smooth it was good. The center dashboard had the cheapest plastic available. It is hard to believe Toyota would use such materials in so conspicuous a place. This sort of thing is what American car companies were severely criticized for but I haven't read one word about it in any enthusiast magazine. After 8 months, I drove a 2007 Saturn Aura. Bye, bye Camry. I bought the Saturn. I look forward to driving again.

I bought this vehicle on July 23, 2007. Here are the transmission problems I've experienced: 2-3 second delay while accelerating. Re- calibration of the ECM has knocked that 2-3 second delay down to 1-2 seconds. Transmission is "confused" and CONTINUALLY shifts at speeds of 28 to 35, 38 to 42, and 45 to 51 MPH. At this rate, the Transmission will go out @ 37,000 miles (right after my Warranty expires!) It is in the shop now (4th time in 29 days) this time they've had it for 5 days and counting. To the Poster from 08/14/2007, if I wanted to "use the shifter" to drive my car, I would have bought a manual...I'm not whining, I'm stating the facts. I, too, smell lemons.

Carpets not down right, cap cover for seat track comes off. 6) Shifts hard/jerky 7) Drivers side auto up/down window- cannot put down several inches - goes all the way down or all the way up 8) Upon resuming cruise, it will accelerate so fast you are thrown back in your seat-like being shot out of a gun.

The previous soft seats were replaced with hard cheap ones which are very very uncomfortable and give me back pain. Third the visibility is much worse than on 2003 model. Indeed the engine is slightly quiter, but overal impression is the same as on old model. Inside there is a lot of CHEAP plastic and designer who made the design is obviously does not hold diploma and is amateur. In sum - bad car for the money.

My top of line XLE V-6 is not as good as my 02 XLE. Cheapened interior materials, flimsy steering wheel switch gear, less padding in seats, only a 2-way power passenger seat, plastic covered board for seat-back map pockets, baby-puke yellow fake wood trim, etc., all combine to paint a less than luxerious interior. The top-line sound system deletes the RDS text of the lower line unit and the ASL feature is all but un- noticeable. Obviously they moved the costs around to provide for the new higher power V6 and the 6 speed transmission, which are so far the car's only redeeming features!

I've had the XLE V6 since Nov 06 (15,000 miles) and want to throw in my comments. Most of all I want to address the hesitation issue so many people are whining about. There is definitely a hesitation when stepping down on the gas. It doesn't exist when using the shifter and seems to be part of the Camry "feel". I don't consider it a defect, but I'm sure my driving style has adjusted slightly from my Mazda3 days. If you keep in mind that the Camry is a comfort car, you may even enjoy the experience. I haven't seen any Camrys causing accidents on TV. Have you? Bottom line: If you want a race car, don't get a Camry. Go test drive the car and decide for yourself.

We are now content with this vehicle that we once hated. Also, be sure to use 0W-20 oil. With the SW fix and using the 0W-20 oil our gas mileage has improved from 26 to 32 mpg (1/2 city, 1/2 hwy). The repairs noted on the receipt were: EG7031 recalibrate ECM (PCM) engine and transmission 9159 Bulletin #EG036-07 .9 OP code EG7031 T1-04 T2-99 recalibrated ECM to improve shifting performance.

Looking for a basic family sedan, I drove numerous brands over many months. The quality of construction, ride, quietness, and legroom are excellent. While the 4 cylinder does not have the punch of the Honda Accord 4 cylinder, the comfort and quietness of the ride won out. Others have complained about the "pause" on downshift when hitting the gas. It's there. But it doesn't bother me the way I drive. Seating front and rear is excellent.

I just bought this car, and the leather seats are luxurious, the sunroof is fun, and it's great to look at. After having it about a week, the performance isn't great, but it's okay. If my Sienna van is any indication (150,000 miles and it runs like new), I should enjoy this car for a long time. With my van, I like it better now than I did when it was new, because I never had an old car with so little trouble.

Bought the 2007 Camry in April 2007, the car’s acceleration is poor to say the least. I took the Camry to the car dealership and they told me the car is performing the way it should. I disagree with their opinion so I called Toyota customer service department and they in turn told me there are no problems with this vehicle. I feel the slow acceleration and hesitation is a major safety issue and something needs to be done to correct this major deficiency right away.

The V6 is a must buy in the sport package. Power is not an issue as it has all the power you need. Very good sport suspension on this model. Would recommend spending the extra 2000 to 2500 upgrade from a I4 to the V6 if possible. The ride is smooth, the design with the spoiler is beautiful.Toyota is making great choices with its model changes! Gas mileage is great on this model especially the 6. No hestitation, comfort is great in front in back. Only thing would like to see is that the interior be made more available in the darker (black) in the SE. Was told they don't even make it! OR offer. I asked if it's on the website then why don't they?

Bought my 2007 Camry after working for a company who rents them. Excellent performance until 28000 mi. Transmission sticks in fourth gear and rpm surge while using the cruise control. Hesitation during acceleration.

I love it!

I am not having all the other issues everyone else is, not sure if its because mine is a manual transmission but I can't say how much I love it. I drove several cars before deciding on this one; it outdid the Altima and I had my heart set on buy a Nissan! Even with less horsepower than the Altima I find mine will definitely get up and go for little 4 cyl. I have owned 3 Saturns before this and I have to say I think I was missing out. I went from a V6 Vue to the 4 cyl manual Camry and couldn't be happier! Wish the keyless came with the CE but I made the dealer throw it in for free or else I was walking out. They did and they had me sold!

Toyota may have computerized the engine and transmission to get better gas mileage but the very best I can get is 25 mpg on the highway. My 1999 Camry got 30 mpg on the highway. While in cruise control and going up a slight incline the transmission is constantly shifting and the rpm goes up and down by as much as 1500 rpm. While driving on a straight and level road at about 40 mph the transmission is changing gears. I have been to the dealer a number of times and the response is "that is the way it was designed". I feel uncomfortable driving this car and will get rid of it.

A good car, but...

This is my third Camry and the worst I've owned. I really like the style of this Camry, but the engine performance is subpar. I've experienced the hesitation problem when applying the gas after slowing down. Also, the power windows seem to get stuck momentarily when I try to roll them down, especially the driver's side. Gas mileage is about 20 in the city, certainly not that great.

Experience severe engine hesitation upon any acceleration attempt with outdoor temperatures 70F and above. Occurs during highway cruising at 60- 65+mph. Even downshifting to 4th sometimes does not help. Engine acts as if starved for fuel, condition becomes very bad with outside temps above 90F. Now need to resolve with Toyota directly. Otherwise, OK vehicle.

Loved the car but two transmissions failed within 19000 miles before I got rid of the car. The transmission design has major problems and so did the replacement. The problem is not addressed. My dealer told me the new transmissions were on back order and couldn't even give me an ETA. That itself says a lot.

I owned a 2003 Toyota Camry XLE V-6 which I really liked. This car exceeds the older model in many ways. The current engine is very powerful and peppy, much more so than the 2003 version. The steering has been tightened up. The car feels bigger. The Bluetooth is very useful and the sound system is good. Navigation system is ok. I am pleased with the stability control system and all the other bells and whistles. The finish seems quite good to me. I had one mechanical defect that became obvious after delivery and was fixed immediately by the dealer. The dealership gives excellent service. This is a good looking functional auto.

I'm 62 and the 2007 Camry was my first foreign made. I'm soooo disappointed with the Camry. The automatic tranmission hesitates. From a stop or at about 5 MPH, if you depress the gas pedal too quickly the car will not accelerate properly for 1-3 seconds - then it's ok. Called dealer and complained. They said no problem, it's just a driving characteristic I have to get used to. I'll add it's dangerous. This is the garbage I've gotten from US dealers. Toyota, I'm terribly disappointed and can't recommend this car. Toyota do the right thing fix the problem uner warranty.

The side front windows limit visibility, the transmission hesitates when shifting, the back seat passenger room is spacious, the stereo system has a great bass and the versatility of CD changer, satellite, iPod, etc., is outstanding. The Bluetooth hands free cell phone feature is user friendly, the 2.4l 4 cylinder engine is great, for in town driving, but there is barely enough power to maneuver interstate lane changes. Overall I like the Camry for its large trunk space, sporty look, the metallic red paint, reliability and low maintenance, Toyota warranty, Toyota dealer service department and better gas mileage than my full size truck. I would recommend buying the 6 cyl. engine.

I wish I could say good things about my camry. A lot of defects that I still do not understand how my car passed the quality inspection when it was manufactured. - Trunk was not closing. It was touching the bumper. It also peeled off the paint. Toyota Dealer put touch- ups on the bumper when my car was only 3 weeks old. It is ridicules. - Heater fan was not turning off. It was running on all the time driving me crazy. - Glove box was defective and not closing well. They took almost the whole dashboard down to fix it in the service but still not okay. - Paint on the bumpers is just cosmetic with very little layer. Little flies have chipped the paint of the front bumper everywhere.

I went looking at an Avalon and ended up with a bright red Camry and about $3000 - $4000 still in my pocket. Minus some trunk space and sprawl room in the back seat I have no regrets. I've always liked bright red cars and when I saw the new style Camry in red I had to drive it. The drive sold me that unless space was the critical buying point, save some money and go with the Camry. I was surprised by how quiet the cabin was and just how comfortable it was to sit in and drive. No regrets!

I have found the paint does stone chip rather easily :( and on the US models, the gap between the console and dash is slightly off (very minor issue for all the complaints I read). If you purchase a 4 cylinder vehicle and then complain about power, you just don't get it. The power of the V6 is UNBELIEVABLE for this type of car. My transmission works perfectly fine, is fun to shift but does better on its own. The stereo with Bluetooth is a dream. The ergonomics are some of the best in the business. I sold a Vette for this and have not regretted it a bit. My Dodge Ram went from daily use to 2 or 3 X a month. I LOVE this car.

This car offers poor driver's seat comfort, poor vision (it sits way too low), only average ride quality, gas mileage *well* below the advertised numbers, and a jerky, balky, surging transmission that is difficult to use. (And the Toyota people say there's nothing wrong with it; it's just the way it is!) The car also does not allow fresh air through the vents; if the AC isn't on, the interior becomes very warm, very quickly. I also dislike the foot-operated parking brake, but that's a minor complaint.

No negatives here. Typical Toyota quality. Smooth tranny, strong horsepower when needed, good fuel economy (28 city/hwy). My car has been trouble free with no tranny issues claimed by others. Very smooth/quiet ride. My SE adds the taut driving feel and not mushy as the base unit. I get complements all the time on the looks/ride. Compared Honda, Nissan, Mazda... sorry can't beat the package/pricing of the Camry. This is our 6th Toyota and we continue to receive the quality we expect. You can not get that comfort with any other automaker other than perhaps Honda.

I purchased my SE Camry two months ago and already I'm seeing significant issues. First off, this car is slug and sometimes hesitates 1-3 seconds before moving. Second, the cruise control is horrible and virtually unusable due to the constant downshifting if the road is not completely flat. Third, the engine is very noisy and the dealership told me that all 4 cyl. Camrys sound that way. Going in a drive-thru at McDonalds is almost embarrassing with the knocking noise bouncing off the wall. The car has only 3,000 miles on it and it sounds as though I'm driving a 10-year old vehicle. Looks are great and interior is comfortable, but it’s not worth buying given the quality issues.

Have 2200 miles on this vehicle and am getting around 30 mpg on trips. Have the same problem others have been experiencing with hesitation in acceleration. Also vehicle hates to decelerate below 30 mph on level ground without braking. Hates to slow going downhill even when in 3 gear. Using the brake so much will must likely result in premature pad replacement. Have a real concern when starting the car as it revs so high and when putting it in gear it backs up extremely fast. Have had it back to the dealer twice and contacted Toyota customer service. No action has been taken to resolve the problem. Seems like Toyota is not adequately addressing the situation. Very disappointed.

I bought my Camry because I liked the styling and I had owned 2 others. The first thing that I noticed was the awful paint job after just 3 months. The paint was flaking off of the front bumper. To top things off, the car gets terrible mileage. My 2002 got better. Even the interior has not held up along with the awful wind noise at highway speeds. This will probably be my last Toyota.

After 2,000 miles, the car is a pleasure to drive, does all the things I expected a Toyota to do. This car has hand controls and a braun chairtopper on the roof for my wife's wheelchair. The back seat has adequate room for my chair. The trunk is large. The controls were installed without a problem no cutting of interior plastic, the knee airbag was bypassed. The chairtopper creates a lot of drag and a fuel economy penalty. I get 18.5 mpg city and 22 highway with this setup with midgrade fuel, which got rid of the knocking problem and improved performance. If you need a lot of passing power on the highway or plan to modify the car in any legal way spend the extra money and buy the V6.

I needed a comfortable commuter that I could also run around with the family in. This car fits the bill as my Civic was too small (was a great car though). Comfortable floaty ride. No transmission issues. 4cyl is slow! Interior looks OK but is built a little cheap. Exterior looks good. Mileage has met the EPA sticker and I just started. I am happy with the car but experience no passion. Still a Japanese Buick (and that's OK for me).

Had an excellent 2001 Camry LE. Bought a 2007 Camry LE and wish I had kept my 2001. It doesn't shift properly, when you slow down in traffic and then accelerate to move forward it hesitates. Trying to get onto a highway I need to be sure I have plenty of space and time because the car does not accelerate fast enough. Forget cruise control - it doesn't keep a steady speed, it slows down and suddenly accelerates, I have had close calls. I'm thinking of trading it in. It has poor MPG. I like the way it looks, but it's performance leaves much to be desired.

After one month, the good: great ride, quiet comfortable spacious cabin, superior electronics (JBL), fair price and good looks. The bad: the significant transmission hesitations are unacceptable and possibly unsafe, and the 4 cyl engine provides inadequate power when challenged. Gas mileage is only about 22 around town. I feel the plusses outweigh the negatives, but any prospective buyer should take a serious test drive under varying conditions and actually experience transmission hesitations and the mediocre acceleration performance. Basically the drive train stinks when stressed. If that limitation is OK with you, it is a great car! PS: I am very happy with after-market leather.

Car was bought one month ago, it's running perfectly, Acceleration is perfect for a 4 cyl. Don't expect V8 acceleration, the days of the old big blocks are gone! The interior is so very quiet, you must compare this car to a Cadillac. Don't buy this car if you want to race, it wasn't built for that. You can't have it both ways, either a car is full of power and stiff suspension or it's smooth and comfortable on the road. I love it for what it is... a comfortable quiet ride!

The car is slow as a slug when starting out. I have had 4 cylinder Grand AMs with 40 less horsepower that accelerated better than this car. I took the car back for the service bulletin fix but the recalibration of the computer did not help the acceleration problem. If you slow down then give it the gas it takes a second to respond. I have almost been rear ended on two occasions this month. I really wanted to love the car but I am merely satisfied with it because of this problem. This car replaced my 2001 Ford Taurus that had only 8 more hp, but it felt like it was an Indy car compared to Perry Como the nickname for my Camry - smooth but slow.

I bought my Camry March 07, it's at 4000 miles. Overall the car did not fulfill my expectation. It failed! The car hesitates as many already pointed out. The brake doesn't respond promptly, sometimes it jerks forward when you step on brake, after almost a second it slows down and the brake is very very soft! The fuel efficiency never gets the number that Toyota advertises. After 3000 miles, highway only gets 28~29 mpg. City, awful, < 22. After one week, I found a rusted conjunction block, which mounts the transmission. I don't know how and why? I sent the car to dealer, they have not decided what to do (fix or replace). The air conditioning is very weak.

I agree with some previous posts about the engine lagging. It is not a smooth ride, at least not what I expected. The 2002 Honda Civic I traded for it was (gasp) a tiny bit smoother and that's saying something. It's gotten to the point that I hate driving it (but love staring at it when I close my garage). I'm seriously thinking of getting something else PRONTO, even though I just paid the sales tax and registered it. VERY disappointed, so please don't get mesmerized by its looks.

We have owned our 07 Camry XLE for a year. We loved the styling but not the 4-cyl engine so waited several weeks for a V6. Mileage out of the showroom was way below advertised (barely 22 mpg on a 400 mile interstate road trip), but seems to have come around over time. This car is a blast to drive and turns heads everywhere we go, but it has the worst paint job I've ever seen. With less than 10,000 miles it already has more scuffs than cars with 50K, plus several chips down to bare metal. This is with 98% paved road driving. Tranny is quirky as well, feels like it's shifting all the time. Maybe 4 or 5 speeds and more torque would have been the way to go.

I like the looks and interior but as described in some of the other reviews it has a hesitation problem when you slow down or brake, and then get back on the throttle. It takes about 3 seconds for anything to happen. It is fine from a standstill through all the gears. The car rides and handles well and is one of the safest cars on the road according to ntsa ratings.

I have had the car for over 8 months now and I am a little disappointed with the lack of accceptable engine power on the 4 cyl. Yes, I know is a four cylinder but I thought the engine should have performed better given the changes. Also, the sound system is so poor unless you are willing to spend $3K more to get the JBL and leather interior, which come together. Toyota made unavailable only the sound system for sale, why? I have had Toyotas for over 26 years and this one did not fulfill the expectations for the price.

I have had my 07 camry SE 4cyl. for almost a year now with 23000 miles on and I hate the motor. No power, jumpy as hell when accelerating, and feels like the car stalls when shifting. That's the only way I can explain it. I have had it in twice and they say they reprogram the computer but it never helps. Gas mileage stinks too but it may be better if they could figure out the engine problems. The interior is cheap!! The plastics easily scratch on all the panels in the car. My driver's seat is starting to wear and my paint has a bunch of rust spots all over it. The spots will buff out under warranty but why should I have to deal with it. I will send pictures of these problems to anyone

I purchased the Camry on reputation and recommendation. I am not a car geek and do not have the knowledge or time to deal with car problems. Well, I am becoming a auto expert by necessity. My problems are: hesitating then surge between shifts, windshield wipers that move with power that rocks the car to the point that it feels like it will roll over, plastic parts falling off, cruise control is so unreliable I don't use it, bad mileage, and, last but not least, half the windshild blacks out when driving at night through areas without street lights. The dealer's answer, "It meets Toyota specifications." Any suggestions will help. Do I qualify for the lemon law?

I test drove the 6 cyl Camry and really liked the power. The XLE had all the bells and whistles to really make the decision easy. The only negative was the fact the 6 cyl only had leather and I cannot stand leather seats. So I test drove the 4 cyl and really saw the 4 was responsive and better than most other 4s I've tried. The only negative I can say about the car is the cruise control isn't as smooth as the Accord thereby requiring the shifting to occur more frequently than it needs to.

Rattles, creaks, wind noise, driver's door alignment have been issues former Toyotas I've owned have never had. I'm happy I'm not having the trans issues the V6s have had. All in all Toyota has dropped the ball. Seems the company's quest to be #1 has caused quality issues. I'll think twice before buying another Toyota.

Toyota, I love what you do for me. NOT!

We just traded this vehicle in at 8200 miles because of several problems — problems that Toyota describes as the Toyota experience and "operating according to design specification". The Camry is like a box of chocolates — each time you touched the accelerator, you never knew what you'd get. There was either hesitation or a normal acceleration. Take your foot off the accelerator and the vehicle could lunge ahead or slow down with a drag as though you downshifted from fifth to third. BTW, this is an auto transmission. These performance (and safety) issues made us realize that this car was not reliable for the long term. This was our first (and last) Toyota. Never got better than 20 mpg.

I bought this car about six months ago and haven't stopped loving it ever since. It gets great mileage for a V6, good sound system that comes standard in all Camrys and overall styling looks sporty and aggressive.

I love the car but the 4 cylinder is very bad when it comes to getting out of the way of something or needing a quick response. The engine lags when you accelerate after slowing down. I have had a few close calls from not getting the engine to respond when you need it (it hesitates badly).

I traded in a Chevy Malibu with over 100,000 miles for this car. I would gladly take it back. I had more issues with this car than in all the years I owned the malibu. The engine made a horrible knocking noise. The factory rep said that is normal for a four cylinder, and if I wanted better performance, I should have got the six. He also accused me of not changing the oil although I had all receipts. The seat is rock hard and not suitable for trips over 50 miles. The car is very harsh on bumps, and the glove box pops open from time to time on them! The car looks good on the outside in terms of design, but fit and finish are horrible. The deck lid almost touched the quarterpanel.

The Camry SE is an above average sedan at an affordable price. It does everything well but nothing spectacular. Gas mileage at 7500 mi is still around 20 MPG and I'm hoping it will improve as I rack up the mileage. With 268 HP it definitely has some spunk, but the tranny hesitates at times. My dashboard creaks like an old house in the wind and the starter makes a sound on cold weather starts. I guess for the price of the performance and that it runs on regular gas makes it more attractive than other sedans on its price range. One thing though, at hard acceleration there isn't the torque steer that is experienced with other front wheel drive vehicles with this amount of HP.

I'm glad I found this web site. Just wish it would have been before the purchase of a 2007 Camry. As a previous Toyota owner, I thought it was a no brainer. However this car has serious throttle and shifting issues. Sometimes the car runs other times it can't get out of it's own way. I called my dealer and Toyota. The dealer said he could reset the car to factory settings but that might make it worse. Toyota corporate would not admit there is a problem. I filed a complaint, whatever good that will do. I traded the car for a major loss. I will never buy another Toyota and will tell my story to everyone I know. As they say, buyer beware. p.s. the dash rattled!

I bought this car to replace my Dodge. I liked the styling for a mainstream car, much better than that of the Ford 500 which I was also considering. Unfortunately, the like for this vehicle stopped there. I choose the four cylinder for fuel savings, but I have been dissapointed. Engine is very slow and it is an advanture merging on the freeway- no power for passing. I am avaraging about 18 MPG. Fit and finish are horrible, The molding around the console has popped out, and has some issues with the power windows and locks. Paint (black) looks like it was painted on with a roller especually under the lights. Seats are very uncomforatable and are showing wear after 15,000 miles.

I've had this car for a year - bought it for the low emissions, safety, and good mileage rating - and I'm considering trading it in. There are two things I can't stand about it: throttle hesitation, and poor gas mileage. Rated for 34 on the highway, I've never gotten more than 28. My previous BMW 3 series got better mileage, and believe me it was more fun to drive.

I'm eighteen and my parents suggested a 2007 Camry LE after my sister totaled my '86 Cressida. After putting 5000 miles onto my car, I noticed that my fuel economy is so-so, around 30 on highway, but significantly lower on city streets (my best was 21 mpg). I hate the transmission as it always hesitates to downshift when the power and speed is needed. I end up shifting it myself to keep people from cutting me off on the freeway. The brakes are too soft and not responsive enough. They also seem to squeak a lot. I will take my car back to the dealership for a fix soon. For the comfort and entertainment of the ride, I like the Camry. The performance makes me miss my '86 Cressida.

I own 2007 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder. My 5th new Camry over past 11 years. I've loved the previous Camry's..hate this one. I can't get over 24 mpg, it downshifts on slightest hill, even on the interstate. When I run A/C, it constantly shifts down 2 gears & lurches back & forth. It even shifted down far enough & redlined to 7.5 the other day on the interstate, when I turned on the A/C & it was slightly windy. It lurches on corners. Dealer installed software update & agrees it is awful, but nothing more they can do.

I bought my Camry 3 weeks ago. I found the following defects on the car in the first two days: Its heater knob was defective. It was turning itself continuously on/off driving me crazy. It does not go off. Interior quality is very poor. All components are plastic and badly aligned. Cabinet on the dashboard does not close properly and it leaves a big gap between its door and dashboard. The trunk does not close easily. I have to strongly slam it every time. I have recently noticed that it is touching the bumper and it also peeled its paint very badly. There was a scratch on the passenger seat and it will probably lead to tearing soon. There was also a scratch on the back bumper.

We have become Toyota Camry and Honda Accord lovers driving used high mileage models from 1992-1994. (All 4 bangers with attitude.) This V6 is a real treat. The Mileage Queen has put 55,000 miles on "Ricky" since Sept 06 (you read it correctly). No problems to date with all service as scheduled. We are trying to do oil changes at 2500 intervals. Difficult to get it off the road that often so are considering switching to synthetic. Fun to drive, scary fast when needed and all options except NAV and XM on this XLE. She chose the XLE over the SE because she was going to do soooo many miles and she is glad she did. Would buy another one today.

For those who complain of power you're expectations are too high. For an I4 this car has a lot of kick, if you want more power then go with a V6. No problems with the transmission at all. Only problem was that the car's bumper was a different shade of white, but Toyota was happy to replace it.

I bought my Camry in January 2007. It now has 4200 miles. I like everything about it except low speed throttle response. From dead stop and cruising above 40 mph it is ok, but slowing down to 10-20 mph and needing sudden burst of acceleration to merge into hole in traffic, nothing happens for what seems like seconds when I put gas pedal down to floor. I become a traffic hazard. My wife's 1999 Toyota Sienna has always had consistant and powerful throttle response at any speed and situation, I want the same in this new car.

This is my third Toyota, and my last one. I'm disappointed seeing that every time this car consumes more gasoline. I've been measuring the miles/gallon since I purchased it, and it never goes higher than 23 mpg in a mix of city and mostly highway. Also, it hesitates when I press the gas, and 3 seconds later it accelerates with a jump! It doesn't feel safe!

I have seen reviews for this car all over the map. In my case, I had low expectations going in and find myself loving the car more each time I drive it. I have the 4-cyl auto sport. I would not have passed up the 6-cyl if I could have found one, but the 4-cyl is more than adequate. The SE package gives it a tight, fun ride that I did not expect and looks that separate it from the standard style you see everywhere else. Fit and finish are exquisite, the interior is extremely well designed, looks good, fun to drive. What else do you need? You're really not compromising anything here in my opinion. It's a Camry, not a BMW. Remember that, test drive it, and judge for yourself.

Okay - if you want a true sports suspension with Volvo, BMW, Saab-like Euro styling and you insist on five star safety features, then go get the completely redesigned Camry SE w/ 5 speed manual trans. This car is more fun to drive than I could have imagined - quick, nimble, amazing handling, good solid power for a four cylinder that you control with the 5m... truly fantastic gas mileage. You will love it but you need to be the type of sports car enthusiasist who loves the control of a 5 speed stick. I was set on a Civic Si or maybe Accord before coming across the 2007 Camry SE... my very good luck I did. Racing bike fits in trunk!

Ordered the LE V6 Feb. 15th and delivery was April 15th. Read a lot of negative reviews so I wasn’t sure what I was getting! Very sharp appearance and the drive is excellent! The 6 speed will take getting used to but is very sure and smooth once you are used to it. Gas mileage now is in the high 20s and that should improve with time. The handling is a little too soft in some situations but is very sure on good roads. Sound system is excellent and interior was adequate but the room is awesome! Would buy it again and recommend it.

I have had no transmission issues or rattling, the comfort and ride of this vehicle felt to me much more high end then what I had paid. I loved the car so much that I traded it in already to buy the SE 2.4 liter version of the car, and boy I love this car even more! The interior feels that of a Lexus or BMW and the exterior is an eye catcher. I have owned it for a week and have already been complimented on the car a half dozen times on its looks.

Having driven Honda and Nissan for many years, would like to feel the difference of Toyota. Bought brand new Camry two months ago and put 1000 miles on it. It drives quiet and smooth. Since I didn't drive in traffic often, I didn't feel the hesitation in acceleration. However, the brakes are very soft and unresponsive. I've got to depress brake pedal very hard each time to slow it down. The braking distance driving a Camry is a lot longer than driving Honda and Nissan. Returned it to dealer for check and the answer was "normal". Average local MPG: 25-28

We purchased our first Toyota product, an '07 Camry LE AT in October 2006, after months of consideration and test driving them as rental cars (averaging 30 mpg all around and 34 highway); it replaced a 1989 2WD V6 Nissan Pathfinder that averaged 21.5 mpg. What happened?! With 4000 miles, it's been a disappointment, 24 mpg (mostly hi-way) and only 400 miles/tank! Each tank gets progressively fewer mpg. It seems to be a non-issue for Toyota who dismisses the complaint and makes excuses for winter driving, gas additives, etc. We expected much more from this car and are somewhat soured on Toyota already.

I've only owned the vehicle for 3 months, but have already put 12,000 miles on it. My biggest complaint is that there is a line of rust developing around both the front and rear window. It is clearly a flaw that exists, but Toyota insists that I must have scraped the paint off while removing snow. The car is garaged and has seen very little snow at all. The transmission is awful! The car is noisy & rattles which is why I say it feels cheap. I love the look, and the comfort, but would never buy one again.

We've had Toyotas in the past and been happy, not with the Camry. Acceleration hestitates and then kicks in and jerks forward, it's not a safe feeling. We had it in four times for dash board rattles, and twice for an annoying brake squeak. They ended up replacing the brakes because they could not fix the problem. There was a strange high pitch ring in cold weather that came from under the car, they could never figure out what it was. We recently replaced it with a Volvo. Hopefully we'll have better luck.

My new 2007 Camry is my fourth Camry in 26 years. I've always had great experiences with Camrys. I've driven my new one for 2600 miles and recently took it on the first long trip. The car hesitated during acceleration, repeatedly shifted gears during minimal acceleration, and ALWAYS down-shifted when using cruise control on slight inclines. In fact it down-shifted two gears to climb small hills in Florida and hit 4800 RPM in third gear. The dealer had already installed software changes related to hesitation but the car still reacts the same way. I loved my 2002 Camry since it rarely down shifted in cruise control. The 2007 cruise control reminded me of my 1981 Corolla!

Now I have almost 4500 miles on my 07 LE V-6. I am still not happy and I have a 1000 mile vacation coming up. Good things: roomy, quiet, good MPG for a V-6, engine is great. Bad things: more rattles than a 10 y.o. junker, my dashboard has a crack in it, the dash rattles in cold weather. Also starter buzzes weirdly on cold morning start up. The left side of the driver's seat is lower than the right side. It takes from 1-3 seconds after pushing the gas pedal for the tranny to downshift and accelerate. With a hard heavy downshift the car takes off, but on normal moderate accelerating, it is dangerous and frustrating. I will bring it in for service soon and see if these can be fixed.

I bought my Camry in June 2006 and I have to say overall I am impressed. I now have app.12000 miles on it and have very few complaints. The acceleration is very quick and the ride is fairly quiet and smooth. However I have noticed an irritating rattle on the left upper dash speaker. There have also been a few isolated incidences where I have noticed a delayed surge in the transmission, which once put me in a potentially dangerous situation. I've read other reviews stating that the leather seats were not comfortable for long drives due to lack of cushion support, but that's not been the case for me especially after recently driving from Houston to Key West, Fla. The seats were very comfortable.

As I was washing my car to remove the bugs at the pressure washer that I have always used when I began to see my bumper paint washing away like it was chalk. I then started looking at other new Camrys to realize that most are missing paint chunks on their bumpers. The dealership tried to patch paint my bumper which made it look like someone spray painted it with a spray paint can from Walmart. Factory window tint was peeling off a week after buy etc. Too many issues.

No transmission flares, hesitations, rattles or any other problems. The car still drives like the first day I bought it. It is very smooth, powerful, refined, quiet and solidly built. The gas mileage has been getting better. I first averaged 23 mpg during the break in period, but ever since then the mileage have increased slowly. I'm now past the 10,000 mile mark and averaging low 26 miles to the gallon. Overall, I am a very satisfied owner and I'm planning to keep this car for many years to come.

The missus and I really fell in love with the new styling. We have now owned for 9 mo, a very competent performer indeed. The gauge cluster is a big hit with the different modes at the touch of a button and the sound system is awesome. Plenty of room abounds in the back seat for the adults and the reclining seats are a nice touch on the long trips. Driving is quiet and refined for a 4 cyl.,handling is good as well.The factory choice of tires could be better, they are not long lasting tread, they will need to be replaced before 25K miles. At 65-70 we can average 32-34 mpg - 27 overall mpg. If we were not so tight we should have gotten the V6. We wouldn't hesitate buying another.

Very Nice

I grew up driving Fords, my whole family works at Ford. I decided to buy the 07 Camry and I love everything about it. For a 4cyl engine this car can move. When you need the power the car and provide it. I have read some of the reviews saying that it doesn't have power this is not true.

Have put 24,000 miles in 1 year. The engine whines annoyingly on acceleration, front cupholder lid rattles when open. Right rear door rattles inside most of the time. Front seats are not comfortable on long trip. Radio lights are too bright at night. Highway mileage is 29, which I consider poor for a 4-cylinder. My '06 Avalon did as well with a V6.

I have a high opinion about Toyota because I have seeen many toyota cars running flawlesly even after 150,000 miles. I own this vehicle for more than 6 months and have driven it for 4500 miles. I love its Avalon like roomy interior and great looks. Bought it when got carried away by its looks but ultimately find it to be a poor investment. This car does not drive well in cruise control at all (eng revs up & dn). Also, seals around doors are poor, you will surely get water leaks even when you wash the car. I get 18 MPG in city and 27 on freeway. Not impressed with MPG! Telescopic steering is not great either.

Love it !

This is an all around great car. Good performance, good layout on the inside, soundly built, quiet - low road noise, large trunk. It has good pick up - there is a computer control of how it accelerates and this can act a little funny some times. It "learns" how you drive and adjusts for your driving style. I'm not sure it's always the best thing, but not a reason to avoid this car.

Overall I am very pleased with my Camry SE, though I did just have it in the shop for a creak in the seat which Toyota is aware of. Toyota did a TSB on the seat, which did not fix the problem. So Toyota had to replace the seat assembly. Other than that, no other problems to report. Still a great car to own and drive.

Moving from another vendor (Audi A4) to the Camry meant the Camry getting a hit from a driver evaluation. The time to reach peak performance is almost at redline, not something I want to do for any vehicle needless a new one. If improvement could be made or factory tuning modifications offered to allow for better engine performance, that would help. Overall though for the engine statistics, the engine performs excellently.

My '02 Camry 4 cyl LE had a smoother and quieter engine. The '07 constantly downshifts when in cruise on the interstate and is annoying. There are also hesitation problems. I still like the car and the reliability, but my old Camry definitely had the better engine even with 170,000 miles on it.

I had one for a year, Toyota was good to replace the two transmissions that failed, I was on my 3rd tranny, when my engine light came on due to a sensor in the tranny. The inside squeaks, the seat belts are hard to get and rattle on the passenger side, if left hanging there. Paint chips way to easy. The brakes squeal, but they fixed that too. I went to a different brand of car, and I must say Toyota did listen to my problems, but I am sorry I am done with Camry. This was the 7th Camry and the last, I feel Toyota quality is slipping big time. Trying to be number one in sales has made them number 5 in customers' eyes.

For those who complain about the power get a V6, for an I4 this car is as powerful as they come. I love everything about this car, I drove to Phx, AZ over the weekend and I had a wonderful time driving the car on the open hwy. As for the hesitation, I didn't encounter any.

The appearance of the new camry is great. I had a 1995 camry and loved it. This 2007 camry does not live up to the camry tradition. Gas mileage is poor, 25 mpg. The gas pedal & transmission are out of sync. At lower speeds when you try to give it gas an intermittent delay occurs between the gas pedal & transmission. This is dangerous. When it finally decides to engage the auto jerks forward. Car looks good but it is seriously dangerous. Dash also rattles.

I rated this car pretty high when I first bought it. 6 months and 7K mi later, and the tranny has been replaced, the dash rattled all winter, and the starter makes weird noises when it's cold. BUILD QUALITY IS TERRIBLE. I'm so disappointed that I may take the hit and just ditch this for something I feel good about driving that doesn't rattle like a 10 year old piece of junk. I'm just amazed that these issues haven't gotten more widespread notice. DO NOT BUY an '07 Camry new or used, unless you enjoy visiting the dealer often.

Seventh Toyota I have owned, This is the fourth Camry along with two Avalons. This is easily the best Camry I have owned. A little stiffer ride than the xl and xle models I have had, but still comfortable and quiet. Heard many complaints about noisy plastic when cold. I have noticed that a little until the car warms up. Acceleration or transmission shifting: if you have owned a Toyota four cylinder before this will not be an issue. You can drive it in 4th and have less shifting on its own. I will take about a week to adjust. Handles well especially flat in the turns. Accelerates well into traffic. If you have owned other camrys or even an avalon I cannot see you being disappointed in this car.

This car is so slow, it takes at least 15-20 seconds to get up to highway speeds of 55+. It is hard to merge into traffic, you can put the gas pedal to the floor and the motor makes loud sounds but the car barely moves forward. The gears shift very rough. The exterior and interior are nice. This is not the Toyota quality I was expecting. With less then 3,500 miles I am very disappointed and will be trading this car soon.

I chose the SE because I wanted something with great handling, yet soft enough and quiet ride. And I chose the V6 because of the 268 hp, a 6.0 seconds 0-60 time and a 14.5 seconds 1/4 mile. Great performance. And it comes with the 6-speed automatic. Under normal driving, the RPMs never go over 2500, and at 60 MPH the engine is relaxing at 1800 RPMs. This car is fast! I've already smoked my buddy's Altima SE-R, and and a new Acura TL. And some people are saying that there are rattles and squeaks in the dashboard, well my car doesn't have any.

The only thing the CE didn't have that I wanted was alloy wheels, which I'm glad I added to the deal (just over $20k out the door). In a prior life I used to be a mechanic, and I went over this car and detail. Interior/exterior quality is very good. Quiet and refined ride, 4 cyl has sufficient power for everyday driving, and a smooth transmission that shifts well.

When going uphill the crusie control makes rapid increases in rpm to maintain speed. Overall build quality very good.

Over the years I have bought three Camrys and was always well satisfied. With the 2007 Camry XLE I didn't hesitate to make the purchase, sight unseen (at the time none were availabile in the showrooms) because of good previous experience. Was I ever so wrong. I do not consider this a "driver friendly" car. Too many touch buttons and rocker switches on steering wheel and dash. Always seem to hit them, and change settings. None visible when driving at night. You can't use radio or CD features at night. Poor heating system - out of sync. Head lights at night poor, high beams useless, seem to flare out plus a few other annoying problems for engineering. This car will be for sale shortly

I had some hesitation in buying this car because of all the issues (e.g. transmission problems, etc.) addressed on several online forums. I haven't experienced any problems in 4K miles. I am particularly impressed with the V6 performance. I drive on the autobahn in Germany and this car keeps up with the BMWs, Audis, and Mercedes (top speed elec. limited to 140 mph). Germans who spent thousands more stare in disbelief when I am on their tail. Other cars may be faster, but for real world driving (even on the autobahn), this car is more than adequate. Forget all the naysayer reviews which quibble about handling - you aren't going to drive on a racetrack.

A superb car for the person who wants practical utility with a dose of performance and refinement. A wonderful drivetrain with great power and smoothness. The styling does not say "Camry" anymore and the interior is mostly excellent - door handles are too hard and plasticky, some rattles especially when cold outside, not overly fond of the center console design. The transmission does occasionally get "confused" and takes a while to select the right ratio, but this does not occur frequently. Acceleration is sufficient to embarrass many true sports cars and I routinely can out-accelerate them in traffic (not that I break any laws - :) ). Replaced my 2003 BMW 325i and I'm happy.

This is my first Toyota. The Camry is a great deal for the money, but this engine does not perfom at all. The transmission is weak, you need to think twice before jumping into traffic. Sometimes when you push on the gas the car doesn't accelerate. I get 24/26 MPG, driving 80% highway at 75. I love the design, I really regret the engine. I tested the hybrid but I had the same feeling regarding the performance. Everyday driving is different from the 30 minute test drive.

I recently purchased a 2007 Camry SE w/ a 5-speed manual. I have found it to be a blast to drive and the fuel economy is uncomparable. Obviously since I got the manual transmission I haven't had any problems with acceleration or anything like that. In fact, with the manual the car accelerates rather well. The exterior looks awesome with the body molding and spoiler. I just took a trip to Charlotte from Pittsburgh, and before leaving Charlotte I filled the gas tank, when I got home I had more than a 1/4 tank left and have driven for two days without the gas light coming on yet.

We have 1000 miles on our base Camry LE V6 with no problems or regrets so far. No signs of the engine hesitation reported by some reviewers (not sure if it matters, but our Camry was made in January '07 in Kentucky). We've averaged 25 MPG. The LE V6 is powerful and quiet. Acceleration is excellent. The only feature I wanted that it lacked is alloy rims. I probably would have bought the hybrid except that it has 1/3 less trunk space. The LE has fold-down rear seats, which the SE and XLE lack. By the way, if you want to tell the V6 apart from the 4-cylinder (without opening the hood), the former has dual exhaust. Note to tall drivers: models with a moon roof have slightly reduced headroom.

I've owned Camrys before but this 2007 (2.4 L) is the worst. It is totally underpowered. It constantly hesitates, looking for the proper gear, when you punch it. It is dangerous. Total lack of frontal visability. Grossly angled windshield with large front roof supports make looking forward like looking into a tunnel. Large rear view mirror blocks off even more of frontal visability. Good luck with curbs when you turn right! Dash rattles. Gas mileage is disappointing, 21 in town. My 3.8 Town&Country got 19! Ride is bad. No head room. This was an expensive mistake. I will dump it next year for sure and eat the loss.

I am happy with the manual and it goes good off the line. However, how is this the car of the year? The dash slopes away from you so it is hard to use some controls on the radio. The wasted space in the radio den is amazing. The buttons are too spread out and can be hard to reach from either passenger or driver side. The steering wheel controls for the radio are awkward as they sit right next to each other instead of inverted. The radio has a blue backlighting that is very bright and can be distracting during night driving. The door locks are too small and its hard to tell which side locks or unlocks it and at night can be hard to find. Stuff rattles in the console or in the in dash storage.

The ride is nice and the power on level ground is good. Fit and finish is really good on this car. The bad though: the 5 speed automatic hunts when driving up and down mountains. It's VERY bothersome when the transmission down shifts the second one brakes when going down a mountain. The speed control as well is balky in that the slightest uphill grade causes the transmission to down shift.

I got this car last week and have about 150 miles on it. The car had initial hesitation around 40 MPH but maybe I was getting adjusted to the new car. I have not noticed any problems that other users have mentioned. The front car windows made creaking sound when rolled down but that automatically disappeared in a day. So far, it's running great. The mileage seems to be good too as the fuel indicator still shows approx. 3/4th tank full (after 150 miles). The ride is quite even at 70 MPH and the pick up is decent (not like V6). The car handles well on road even in rain and light snow. The interior is very roomy and spacious and Toyota has given some nice standard features in LE. Way to go!

Just took delivery of my 2007 Camry XLE 6 Cyl (white). This is my 4th camry and these cars never fail to exceed my expectaions. I've had all LEs in the past with 4 cyl, until now. The 6 cyl in this car has great acceleration. Other car makers should learn from Toyota that you don't need premium fuel to make a fun ride. The car is really fun to drive. The interior design is excellent (leather with heated seats). Material issues that I've read about haven't caught my eye, and if reliability and performance are as I expect them to be, who cares. The trans seems to shift fine (when really cold and fully warmed). The stereo sounds great. I'll be riding around in this baby for a long time.

Not your Mom's Camry !

Purchased my car as a Demo and absolutely love this car. Drove a BMW 3 series before and looked at many cars before pulling the trigger. Acceleration is SICK. Interior is very nice and quiet. JBL system owns. Shocked that this car has "Camry" on the trunk. Rides great, expect solid reliability. Upgraded rims to 18" BBS/Michelin tires and it sets the car off! I am surprised at how pleased I have been so far. Lexus ES 350 at a Toyota price. When I got the car I wanted to open it up to see what it was capable of. If you buy this model be careful, I was crusing smooth and fast, looked down an was going over 100 mph. WOW!

Beats the competition, hands down!

I love this car. The accelerating is great, the transmission is smooth, it handles well and breaking is excellent. I like the overall appearance of the Camry, especially with the SE Sports Package. I agree with others; it is a perfect balance of affordability, power, luxury and features. Gas MPG isn’t bad, been getting mid 20s hwy/cty. After doing the research/reading reviews and test driving it was an easy choice. My choices were narrowed down to the Camry SE, the Altima SE and Chrysler 300, needless to say I chose the Camry. This thing beats its rivals hands down; they just don’t measure up to the Camry. Go ahead and get one you won’t regret it!

I Love My Camry SE V6!!

I researched this car so thoroughly before buying that I drove my wife crazy. I have NO hestitation buying the car even after reading the problems for a very few customers about tranny flare and drive by wire hesitation. I absolutely love everything about my Camry SE V6 so far. I only have 1200kms on the car so far and yet I cannot fine one single problem with the car. I have owned over 14 Toyotas in my life and this one is the best so far. It looks, feels, sounds and smells fantastic.

OK, I've had my 07 V-6 for 2 full months. WOW what a disappointment. There are as many rattles, squeaks as my old 97 Grand Prix. Worse when it's really cold but thats ok. The engine is still phenomenal and it does get good MPG. The seat comfort is not as it was and I found that the gas-brake pedals are offset too much to the left of my body centerline. The tranny housing is too wide and as such causes an unneeded bend in my right leg, RE: KNEE PAIN. Still a quiet car, looks good, good MPG, but the rattles even if NOT moving are a major distraction. WAIT til the 08s come out to buy one.

Poor Acceleration; Frequent Downshifts

I loved my '05 Camry 4 cyl automatic transmission LE, but I hate my '07 Camry 4 cyl automatic transmission LE. By far the biggest problems are the hesitant acceleration of the '07, and the frequent automatic downshifts at freeway cruising speeds of 65 to 70 mph. I don't know if the problem is "drive by wire" or the car weighs too much for the engine size (or both). In addition, the a/c system frequently pops out of recirculating mode on its own. Toyota also moved the controls for the electric side mirrors from a convenient position on the arm rest to an inconvenient position to the left of the steering wheel. I can't wait to get rid of this car, and I only have 6,600 miles on it.

The ride is rough, and the wind noise is unbearable. I had the windshield and seal replaced, as per the dealer internal memo to solve that problem, but it made no change whatsoever. I am so dissatisfied, I am searching for another 2007 vehicle and am selling the Camry.

Smaller cargo

Great Car

Not sure where all the negative comments are coming from. I find this to be a wonderful car. Many people have mentioned a hesitation in the transmission; I haven't seen it. Perhaps since I bought late in the model year, it was corrected. Good energy from the 4 cylinder. Very comfortable, quiet interior. Would suggest control of the dash lights. I love the display, but the light from the radio can be distracting. Some have mentioned disappointing build quality. Don't see it at all. Traded in a Mazda3 S for this and I'm fine with the decision.

3rd camry bought new

One of few made in Japan. Bought first available new model sight unseen. New styling strange at first but ok and am now getting used to change. Seats are padded more firmly than previous model but comfortable on trips. New interior is very pleasing to the eye and am happy to have features like tire pressure indicator, side airbags, 4 wheel disc brakes and 16 inch wheels included as standard.

Awesome Car!!!
