If you change the oil, keep it tuned and do the very basics of car care...this thing runs and runs and runs. Bought this unloved Camry at an estate auction well below blue book because it had been wrecked. Had 17k on it when we bought it. Repairs were all original Toyota parts according to the local Toyota dealer. 196,000 miles later despite the abuse of one of our young male drivers and we have yet to replace any parts on the car other than brakes and tires. We're giving the car away to someone who needs reliable transportation. At 196K the engine is not using oil and the compression all checks good. I bought another Camry LE (2010) with 28K on it for the very fact that we know that these cars go the distance if you do the basic maintenance. You get a nice sedan that makes your bucks go a very long way.

I bought my 2004 Toyota Camry very slightly used - essentially new. It gave me more than ten years and more than 120,000 miles of rock solid reliable use over its lifetime. The Camry performed and handled pretty much as you would expect from a full-sized sedan of its class. It was designed as an everyday workhorse sedan with an emphasis on dependability, fuel-efficiency, and utility. It excelled at those traits and provided very satisfactory performance with the exception of the turning radius, which seemed overly wide and could be a pain in parking lot situations. I never had any real problem with acceleration when I needed it. Driving the Camry felt natural the ride was comfortable. The technology in my vehicle featured some very nice convenience features - most especially an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, auto-off headlights, and auto-locking doors. My Camry also had powered driver seat adjustment. The car's interior was roomy and comfortable. Its decor was tasteful and withstood ten-plus years of heavy use quite well. My only complaint about the interior was that the lid latch on the center console broke and repairing it was too expensive to be worth the cost. Cargo capacity in the Camry was more than satisfactory. It had a spacious trunk and the rear seats could fold down if needed. This provided as much cargo room as I could ask from a four-door sedan. The car's exterior characteristics were, on the whole, very good. It had a pleasing design and it kept its quality throughout its life. The sole outstanding negative of the 2004 Camry's body was that it had extremely low ground clearance, which could lead to scraping the bottom of the front bumper or the undercarriage in some cases. The Camry's safety seemed to be good. There was a recall on the side curtain air-bags, including my own vehicle. Other than that, I always felt that it was a safe car and in the one major collision I had with it - one which was not the fault of the car - the car was rugged enough to prevent any personal injury. Reliability is perhaps the most famous aspect of Toyota's reputation. In that regard, the 2004 Camry was absolutely incredible. Over the course of more than ten years of hard use - including a number of trips crossing multiple states - it did not suffer a single breakdown and had only one major component failure, that being a computer chip for the air conditioning system. At ten years, I would still rely on the 2004 Camry to take my from coast to coast without a second thought. And when I did replace this vehicle, I bought yet another Camry.

231,000 Miles and Still Going!

I've purchased my Camry in Jan. 2015, with about 196,000 miles on the odometer. I drive a lot and over the course of a year, I've put on about 36,000 grueling miles of San Francisco-area traffic; a lot of city street driving, with a decent blend of highway commuting as well. Because I drive so much in heavy traffic and because of the already high miles on the car, I was a bit nervous that it might bite the dust before I could afford something newer and nicer. But in fact, it's only left me stranded once - and that was only because of a bad battery. Now at 231,000 miles, it's still running on the original 2.4L engine and original transmission. It's starting to shift harshly and it has a few electrical issues, but you can't say most cars will make it past 230,000 miles. Bulletproof reliability, even survived a bad accident I was involved in back in October. It needed a new control arm and has a few battle wounds from the incident, but still drives and handles like how some cars drive at 90,000 miles. This was my first Toyota and I'm VERY satisfied! Definitely going to be a repeat Toyota customer!

Bought this car from brother in law three years ago who followed all maintenance requirements, as did I. Had to replace sagging headliner and rear speaker covers. Added new tires, brakes, alternator, battery, frequent oil changes, transmission flushes, etc. Car ran great for three years. In 2015, my son and I noticed a sloshing sound behind the dash. Coolant in reservoir was low, even though we checked it regularly. Filled it and took to mechanic. He initially thought that it was the stripped head bolt problem. Coolant was leaking into the engine. Cracked head. Said that the car had been overheated, even though there was never any indication of overheating on instrument panel or smoking, etc. Mechanic stated that it was nothing that I did and that this was a very poorly designed engine and I would be wasting my money to replace the engine, as I would be getting another defective engine design. He stated that he had always believed Toyota to be great cars, but not after working on this one. Car had 126,000 miles on it. Interior quality was also very cheap. Flannel cloth doors! Not at all the same quality as my 1994 Camry in terms of longevity or quality. Gas mileage was good, but not so good now! What a complete waste of money for a car that had been so well maintained. Do not buy!

Acceleration Issues & Rattling Noises

I read every review on this thread and it appears I am 1 of about 20 fellow 2004 Camry owners who have experienced similar, if not the same, issues with acceleration and/or rattling noises near the driver side firewall area. It's a shame, because prior to this Camry, which I purchased used from Carsense in 2014 w/76K miles on it, I was a devoted Toyota owner. Now my opinion of Toyota has changed. My advice to someone considering this model would be to move onto another option. Don't take your chances. And research EVERYTHING prior to signing the dotted line. Don't pass on the extended warranty either (even tough that's not a 100% guaranteed safety net either).

Best car ever!!!

I bought mine used in 2005 with 20K on it. Just traded it in (2014) with 175,000. Never replaced anything but the typical disposables! This car just goes and goes and never brakes down or needs repairs. I wish they still built them like this. Best value and reliability!

I recently drove my grandmothers camry on a 800 mile round trip road trip with 4 adults and a trunk full of stuff. At first, I was worried about the power because we were going to be going up and down mountains all day, but there were no problems. Even up the steepest grades, no power was lost and it even stayed in overdrive. A majority of the time the car was pushing 80, and the ride was very relaxing with no road noise and responsive steering. It was a very comfortable car to ride in and the trip average was 30mpg both ways. The car has 68,000 miles and the only thing that was ever replaced were tires, brakes (65,000 miles) and a steering bushing.

bought it new for Xmas back in 03, couldn't resist the 0% APR offered by Toyota Financing. Anyway it'll be close to 10 years since then and I've driven it almost all over the PST/MST zones. City economy is never higher than 24, freeway cruising between 75-80 nets 29 and back-road cruising between 45-55 nets a high of 36. Yep 36 but I rarely drive that slow for that long so that almost never happens. I keep up with all the scheduled maintenance as a rule, change the oil every 3-4k miles and it just keeps on trucking. 200 lbs/ft tq is enough to carry a family of 5 from the coast to the peaks with a trunk full of luggage. And food. And a cooler too. I almost bought another 04 once, haha

No more Toyota Camry!

I was gifted this car two years ago after a family member purchased a new car. Having a 2000 Nissan Maxima, I decided this would an upgrade. Boy was I wrong. This car gets the same MPG as my Maxima, about 20-22 in town and 26 on the highway. For a vehicle with only 70,000 miles when I got it, and a Toyota, it sure has a lot of problems. It eats tires and brakes, it leaves me stranded, and it's most recent repair needed, a new Throttle Body, costs upwards of 1,400 dollars at only 95 k! I am going back to my Maxima after two years in the Toyota, and couldn't be happier. Newer and more expensive isn't always better!

I was a little skeptical about getting this car at first. Now, I'm glad that I made the purchase. It has NEVER left me stranded and has ALWAYS sent me from Point A to Point B. So far, the only maintenance I have done to my car was oil changes, a new battery, and tires. I also love the moonroof and the leather seats. The JBL sound system is also a pretty nice system. The only thing that I can think that I dislike is the rear window shade. Other than that, thumbs up on this end. Toyota's might be expensive to purchase, but maintenance cost and insurance are SO LOW that it makes up for it.

I now have about 115,000 miles on this car. There have been no problems. Even what I consider expected repairs came much later than expected; brake pads at 85,000, struts at 110,000. This is even after having been driven by two teenage boys. MPG is great; 27 on daily commute, and 34 on vacation road trips. i have enough confidence in this car that I let my son take it to college with him. I replaced it for my use with a 2007 Camry and have been disappointed. the 2004 is vastly superior.

Bought this car with 39k on it. The car rides well and has good stability. If I have any complaints is the interior cloth seats tend to generate static electricity and don't hold up well with child seats. The interior is loaded with plastic. Car is tight, steers well and a pleasure to drive. It actually has a lot of similar characteristics to a luxury car I have that costs almost 3 times the price.

This has been the best car ever. Maybe not the sharpest looking but the way it handles, it's smooth ride, quiet interior, quick acceleration and outstanding gas mileage makes it tops in my book. I consistently get 28-29 mpg. On my curvy road to and from home, I could effortlessly sail around the curves without a worry. Driving on snow and ice was solid. My husband preferred my car to his Ford Explorer for winter weather driving. If I could get another exactly like this but without the higher miles, I would.

Throttle Body Failure - Recall Coming?

As has been reported to Toyota and the NHTSA, the throttle body will fail on this vehicle due to a design flaw. Do a web search on this model of Toyota and you'll see numerous instances of "throttle body failure." We just had to spend $1100 getting it replaced on our 2004 Camry and because it is a design flaw, it will fail again. The car will simply stop in the middle of the road with no way of restarting it.

After 86k miles, my Camry is still trucking along with no problems, no unusual expense. The worst I've had is tires that wore prematurely (Potenza) -- nice performance tires but wore out at 35k. On the good side, no need for brake job 'til 60k! Aside from that, only 1 regret that it did not come with much tinting! making it hot in summer. Otherwise a fantastic car and the only comfortable seat I've ever owned.

The 2004 Camry, that I purchased new, needed the brakes repaired @ my 3 day check up. I am now getting the throttle body replaced for the 3rd time ($1400.-). I also replaced an Oxygen sensor. I drove my last vehicle, a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix 140,000 with the original throttle body & Oxygen sensor. I thought I was buying the reliable/dependable vehicle they advertise. I got a clunker!

Although the height of the interior is fairly short, the car provides an excellent amount of leg room. The dashboard is equipped with the standard settings with the max speed reaching to 110mph. To the right of the dashboard lies the music system, which includes CDs, cassettes, and radio, and beneath the music system is the heating and cooling controls. Being a car with auto transmission, the car is installed with an automatic-stick just to the right of the driver. Along with the automatic stick shift is the hill parking handle, and two cup holders for whatever drinks that the driver may have. Between the backrests of the passenger and driver seat is a small compartment to store misc. items.

Please note that if you have a 2004 or 2005 Toyota Camry, you may want to dump it now before it is too late. The vehicle has a part called the throttle body assembly which was of a faulty design and was redesigned. Toyota sent out a technical service bulletin reference number EG023-05. This part, the throttle body assembly with motor, costs $934. On our 2004 Toyota Camry XLE, replaced this on 08-06- 2007. On 09-09-2009, this part quit again and my wife had to walk an extended distance and Toyota refused to repair this faulty part for less than $1100.66. They had every excuse imaginable. Bottom line - Toyota does not stand behind their product - DUMP THEM.

I bought this vehicle used with 90,000km on the odom. I paid the full price as if it was brand new: $33,000. The interior was not in great condition. I hated the silver color. I drove it 5,000km before it was stolen from Edmonton, Alberta. It was recovered 3 months later with 40,000km than when I bought it. It was driven day and night and was stolen by drug dealers I suppose. The engine was gone on the vehicle due to not changing the oil. If you are going to steal a vehicle maybe perhaps check the oil once in a while! The car while I had it was fun to drive and with the 4 cylinder extremely excellent!

Steering column has begun to click when I turn. Not sure what the problem is. As the Toyota service mechanic told me, not to worry this happens to all Camry's. When AC is on idle problems occur when I start to slow down. It feels like the car is about to shut off. When I come home from work around 5pm. I do not use my car until the next day which is around 8:30am. Car feels like not turning on as if it was parked for a few months. It might be the battery.

I'm a 30-year owner of Toyota--had a 1981 Toyota Corona for 16 years and sold it to a friend who drove it another three years before trading it in. I had a lovely 1998 Toyota Camry -- only problem before sold it was getting an oil leak stopped--it was costly to get to, but the part was cheap to fix, labor was excessive due to how hard it was to get to. Had a Buick in 2005, and was really glad when purchased this 2004 Camry in 2007 with only 9,000 miles on it. Car has a popping sound when turn wheel to park in garage at night. Am told if it bothers me, labor cost to get to part is about $250; it's not bothering me that much yet. Was in an accident in 1988 Camry; it saved my life I think.

Hi folks I just wanted you all to know that when Toyota built this car they did it right with crashes. My 18 yr old was in a rollover, it rolled three times and she walked away with 6 stitches in her left hand and the inside was unharmed. The outside however did what it was designed to do, it broke away from the driver. Thank you Toyota for a well made car. I will be looking for a new one just like this one.

I started experiencing shifting problems, but the dealer couldn't fix it. While turning on a busy 4 lane highway, the transmission went out. I do not abuse this car (I am too old to beat any car up). Now I have a $4000 bill for a new transmission. I have found out that this has been a problem for other owners but Toyota will not acknowledge or take car of their problems. Other than that the motor ran well and I got good mileage, but I would never buy another one.

I bought the car 9 months ago with 34,000 miles. It now has 68,900. So far I have just had to replace the front brake pads. It does have a couple of rattles in the dash that I can't find. I turn up the radio and that takes care of that. The paint job could use a little improvement no shine, dull. The sunroof has a wind whistle and I have to tap the close button and it closes all the way. No leaks so far. Stinky smell coming from the AC vents. A trip to the dealer for the AC refresher treatment cured that little problem. My Camry has the 4 banger and gets around 24/26 city and 28/34 highway. I have a lead foot so this is good. I also like the fact that it has a time chain instead of a belt.

Not the "bulletproof" Toyota I expected, but still a very good car for the price. The intermediate steering shaft went @ 36K and the water pump was leaking slightly @ the block. Both fixed under warranty. The front driver's seat has a squeak when you sit down and the wipers squeak against the window (tried both after market and Toyota replacements). Unlike others, no problems with the paint, rust @ the trunk lid, odors from the A/C or heater, or the auto transmission (shifts fine). Makes you wonder if Toyota has "built on Monday" problems like GM used to have. Got 60K out of the original Potenza tires -- I know, that's unbelievable. Rotated them often and watched the pressure.

It's been 4 years since I picked up my Camry. It now has 99,000 miles, and I have had zero problems with it. I replaced the original Michelin tires at 75k miles, along with the rear brakes. Front brakes were done at 98,000 miles. I'd like to see improved instrument panel lighting. It is difficult for my 59 year old eyes to see the gauges (including the speedometer) at night. From what I've seen, this has been improved in later model years. Although this is a lot of car for the money, I would have gladly spent a bit more for traction control, but it was not available with the 4 cyl. engine.

Still enjoy the car after 2 1/2 years

We bought the car as a certified used car with 38,000 miles on it and now have 97,000 with no problems whatsoever. On a recent trip to Houston we drove between 60 and 65 MPH and got 35.5 MPG! (New tires and wheel alignment prior to the trip.) Love the lumbar support and the quiet ride. The only complaint is the easily scratched exterior paint. Much less road noise than the Hondas we have owned.

I've owned this car from new and have serviced all fluids regularly (transmission, coolant and steering included). It is my rolling office and my main concerns are reliability and economy. It avarages 30 mpg, needed front brake pads at 72,000, wiper blades at 75,000, spark plugs at 100,000, pads with rotors at 153,000. The only unschedualed repair to date was the right rear brake light bulb at 103,000. The rear brakes have had regular cleaning but have not worn out. If Toyota made appliances, computers etc. I would buy them

The V6 Camry is a wonderful car to drive. I have driven it for nearly 4 years and am very satisfied. Fuel economy is decent, cannot complain. I gave performance a 5 because of the delay when the gas is pressed a bit much, but sometimes noticeable even with calm acceleration (somewhat annoys me).

I bought this car brand new in 2004 and drove about 45000 miles so far. No problem. Excellent in driving. Only drawback would be gas consumption compared to hybrids. If you are not planning to buy a new hybrid, this would be a excellent choice. Peace of mind.

This was my first Toyota and probably my last. Transmission replaced at 2300 miles. Problem returned at 5600 miles-traced to faulty valve body. Trunk lid rust at six months- repainted under warranty. Several squeaks and rattles from the dash and front door could not be fixed. Thermostat failed at 40K, not covered. Steering intermediate shaft loose and clunking at 42K. Toyota refused coverage even though a TSB was issued about this problem. Repair cost over $600. Engine always used about 16 oz of anti-freeze every 5K. Toyota said that was "within tolerable limits". Drive by wire throttle tip-in is very abrupt making a smooth launch tough.

Purchased a 2004 LE V6 Camry used. Already have a 2001 LE V6. '04 model has a different body style that is vastly quieter and somewhat larger. The 04 was the first year for the 5 sp auto on the V6 and improves mileage on trips and decreases noise at high speeds, but the transmission shifting is much worse (and erratic) in the city than my 01. All TSBs have been applied. Dealer indicates it is operating as designed. Transmission also now requires Toyota fluid (vs Dextron 3 for 01). Ride seems somewhat smoother, but this is less noticable than the improvement in cabin noise. Rear doors are longer, making exit/entry more difficult. Trunk went from large to absolutely huge.

I love this car! I traded my '95 Celica for one last fall, and there is not one regret! Its fast, fun, sporty, and it is so cavernous! So what if it doesn't get 40mpg - if you want that, get a Prius! I agree with 2% of the ratings out there as far as the odd tranny shifting & paint scratches, but that's it. If you want a solidly built, safe & reliable car that is fun to drive in every condition, get a Camry.

I bought Camry LE limited edition in 2006 December. This is just perfect car to me. Engine and transmission are amazing. Fun to drive, very comfortable, design is beautiful, I think 2004 model is better than 2006 new model in exterior design. Gas mileage is somewhat unsatisfactory. Average mpg 22.0 I think this low mpg is due to cold weather. 3-4 minutes warming up before start, and hitting in driving. Camry is the best car in mid-size. Any car is not matching to this camry.

I bought this car a little over a year ago. So far, everything has been all right, (at best). Here's the deal, so far my cars been completely reliable to me, but then again any car should be within the first few years. THE BAD: (and I need to take it to a dealer on this: 1.) Leaking water sound EVERY time I accelerate. Sounds like water is swooshing around in dash, 2.) FOUL ODORS, when accelerating fast, and when turning on the A/C. 3.) for whatever reason (especially when humid, the belt squeals constantly. 4.) Interior quality is poor. The "painted plastic" is wearing everywhere. 5.) Gas mileage is not what I thought it would be, Could be due to one of the above issues? Don't know.

The trunk gutter has visible rust at all the spot weld points all around the trunck. Also would have preferred 16'' wheels. Have experienced excessive tire noise on the highway - noticeable by the radio volume increasing when on the highway. Don't think I have bad ears yet.

When I first purchased this vehicle I was excited about the quality of the vehicle and the smoothness of the ride. However, after approximately 22 months and 23k miles the check engine light came on. I brought it to the dealership and it was fixed. After 26k miles the tires were worn and needed to be replaced. Now, at 27.5k miles the check engine light is on again. After the first few weeks of owning the car I noticed a rattling in the dash that just can't be solved and I am still driving with that rattling. I am extremely surprised by these issues. I will have to evaluate other options next time I'm in the market for a car, which may be soon.

The 04 SE 4cyl seems to me as the most bang for your buck. The V6 has some added features but it also kicks up the price out of range. The 4 cyl gives you all that you want and leaves out the things you can live w/out like steel wheels, a spoiler and ofcourse more power. W/the 4 cyl you still get the sporty interior design (black w/chrome accent), the sporty grill, headlights and fog lights. After 40,000k everything about the car is the same as the day I drove it out of the lot. For a big car that can fit 5 adults comfortably, and a spacious trunk for pretty much anything, the gas mileage is very good. Icing on the cake is you get a spoiler. What more can you ask for?

Pleasant to drive, lots of room but the radio sounds a bid cheap despite a bunch of speakers. The windshield developed a tiny crack near the roof that progressively lengthed to about 2 feet before replaced. There seems to be a tendency for the chassis to twist and crack the windshield! Like others I've had a dash rattle. Also, tap the brakes when slowing from 70 on a downslope and the tranny very perceptively downshifts. No answers from dealer.

I started getting rattles from the dash area as soon as I drove it off the dealers lot. Took it back 7 times and they could not resolve it. Told me to drive and bring it back before the 36k mile warranty and they would try again to fix the rattles. Brakes feel spongy and original Goodyear tires were lousy in rain. Changed to Yokohama tires and drives like a different car. City gas mileage is only 22. Highway is 34. Last Toyota for me. Will buy Honda Accord or Civic. Toyota dealer support is lousy. They dont spend much time trying to fix warranty problems.

We've had the 4cyl Camry LE for over 2 years. Great car, but a little bland. Ride is floaty, comfortable, and handles reasonably well considering. Interior too light colored to keep clean. Small squeaks under close scrutiny. Brakes without ABS, OK. Opt for ABS for better brake feel and stopping distance. Acceleration light, but buzzy at times. Some interior materials get scratched as do the hubcaps against the curb. Steering is light, but very precise. Stock radio provides good bass. Overall, great car, 9/10. QUIETER than the Accord at highway speeds meaning less fatigue. Reliable. Would purchase again, but with side airbags. If purchasing, go with the alloys and side airbags.

Bridgestone tires' quality seems questionable. 2) Left rear door could not be openned from inside. Toyota dealer fixed, saying that the cable was broken. 3) One transmitter was broken. replacing battery did not work out. 4) Gas mileage: highway 32, local 17-20. Local gas mileage lower than claimed. 5) My head often gets knocked by the top frame because design of raised driver's seat makes front head room insufficient. 6) Brakes not as good as my old Mazda 626.

Next the A/C system started leaking water into the passanger compartment. Dealer took care of it, but how annoying!

Overall, I've been very pleased with my Camry. We've driven it under a great variety of circumstances, from urban Los Angeles to barren West Texas. Trip fuel milage has averages about 31 MPG which is appreciated with the current price of fuel. The Camry is comfortable on trips, although the seats are a little firm and could benefit from some more prominent side bolsters. Mechanically, it has been absolutely reliable. My only real complaint is some vibration noise in the dashboard/instrument panel, which can be annoying at times. As a family sedan, the Camry should definitely be on your short list for consideration.

I believe ever since Toyoya started building cars in America, quality has gone down. I bought my Camry with 1000 miles already on it, but it was new since it had no title. Problems I've had with my car are, the paint - no clearcoat and one layer of paint make it easy to get chips, I have MANY; dashboard - rattles; sunroof - leaks; front passenger speaker - rattles; engine - V6 is not responsive; and the front driver window - doesnt seal properly. The only problem that has been solved is the leaking sunroof. All other problems have been brought to MULTIPLE Toyota dealerships and ignorance has caused me to still have these problems to date. If you want a more reliable car, look elsewhere.

At only 15000 miles, many treads were already gone. I rotated tires regularly. 3. Windshield bottom rattles. Dealer replaced the cowl with only temporary results. 4. Rattles from door panels. 5. I heard rattle from engine or under vehicle every time I started the car and hit on gas to drive. Dealer said it is the intake manifold. After replaced, the rattle is still there. 7. Strong rotten egg smell at 8000 miles. Replaced converter and reprogramed ECM. The car started to feel heavy(hard acceleration, hard steering, and hard brake).

This is my first Toyota purchase. I felt that if bought a Camry, I could kiss any frustrations goodbye. Not true! This car has an annoying lag time when the car is slowing down ( stop and go traffic), and then you try to accelerate. There is a dead spot, then it jumps ahead, as if the transmission doesn"t know which gear to go in. This is the new Drive by wire technology according to Toyota. The local dealership has acknowledged this a problem, and they are working on a programming change, but in the meantime, the car can be very aggravating to drive. They must resolve this problem. I will not put up with it. As for gas mileage, it is not as good as stated. The car does have lots of power.

The Toyotya SE is the perfect combination of a reliable 4 dr sedan with sportier styling inside and out. The 4-cylinder has surprising pep. The optional 16" wheels are a must to finish off the sporty look.

Overall this is a nice car. This is my 1st Camry and I'm pleased with the car. I like the 5 speed even though is does hesitate when shifting. On the highway this is a sweet car and doesn't hesitate to go when you hit the pedal. I know one thing I will probably never go back to a american car brand the quality is no match and the design shows they thought everything out to benefit the consumer. I will definitely consider Toyota when the time comes to buy another car. It is fun to drive in nice weather with the sunroof open and the radio playing as you cruise down the road.

I am pretty much impressed with the handling of this car and the good gas mileage for a big car. I bought this 2004 Salsa Red Pearl Camry last Nov. 2003 and have used 18K to date. I normally just use 12-13K a year but I loved driving it so much my wife and I use it more than her car. I just wish it had a sportier look like the Altima or Accord. But overall it's worth the money!

This car with manual trans has a lot of power. I can merge into the highway with a lot of confidence. The fuel economy is very good, never below 24mpg. I liked the roomy interior and the simple board design. A little bit difficult to drive in hilly terrain, since I found that the clutch has a small range of engagement. Its weight also makes the uphill starting more difficult. Overall still like it, just take time to get used to it.

When it comes to just needing a quality car for a pretty good price, this is hard to beat. It has decent power when you need it, as long as that is "needing it" like once a day or less. The 4 cyl is built for comfort, mpg's and lasting ability. Can't speak for the latter yet, but the first two have been really good. About 28mpg on city travel, not sure on long distances yet.

We bought our Camry LE in Feb. and truly "broke it in" according to the manual. On 2900 mile trip afterwards averaged just over 32 mpg.(Including city driving). Now have 13,000 trouble free miles & avg. better. This car has no rattles, squeaks, ect. It is comfortable and a pleasure to drive. Some say it's handling is boring. My sister owns a 2001 Honda Accord EX. Around town our Camry is everybit as enjoyable, if not more so. On the open road the smoother ride more than makes up for a touch less handling in curves. - The build quality, interior materials and refinement make us feel like we own a much more expensive car.

My only complaint is that it is so refined that it's a little boring to drive. My wifes minivan is more fun to drive.

wanted a manual, but bit on some sales talk that the automatics were near the same fuel economy that didn't prove true. It averages 25-27 mpg on pure freeway, 18 in the city. The funky things about this car are: radio static - attenae on older models did better; weird configuration of radio and vents does not allow adequate aeration near driver on very hot days, radio display almost invisible in daylight; velvet interior (even on armrest) gets soiled easily.

I did not consider buying this car a week before I actually purchased it. I am a Nissan fan myself and originally wanted an 03 Maxima or the new Altima SL. Considering the prices and quality/reliability, I decided to go with the Camry. Toyota has a better record of producing reliable cars and my SE was about $4K cheaper than the SL. My parents have the base LE and there are signifant differences between them that I can not stand driving the LE. The Accord was another good choice, but I liked the styling better on the Camry. SE was also cheaper than the V6 Accord.

Everything about this car is great except for the 5 speed automatic transmission. The transmission can't seem to decide what gear is correct and is always shifting. In addition, the drive-by-wire throttle combined with the transmission causes the car to hesitate when acceleration is needed most. Toyota says that hesitation is the driver's fault and that when the car is driven, the accelerator pedal must not be floored or pressed too quickly otherwise hesitation will result. Toyota told me that they may or may not address this issue in the future, but at the present time I am told that "hesitation is normal for this design".

I have always wanted a Camry because all my friends that have them have loved them. I have really enjoyed mine now for 5 months. The ride is very smooth and it holds 4 men comfortably. Gas milage is good. My only complaints are the car seems to have difficulty shifting from 1st to 2nd gear at times. This seems to happen when going medium speed (not a problem when accelerating slowly or rapidly). It also seems to ride a little rough first thing in the morning.

Toyota's top of the line sports edition with the 3.3 liter (225hp) engine needs some fine tuning. Toyota should replace the current 5 speed transmission. The trans should be propelling the car forward and not shifting from 1st to 2nd gear at 8mph. Pick-up is compromised due to the low 8mph shifting. It would be nice to keep pace with mini-vans and compact cars from stop lights. Obviously people who rave about this 5 speed transmission have never driven a real driver's car.

When they didn't call me back, I called them and they told me the same thing the auto-body shop told me.....that the part wouldn't be avail. until 9/13/04.

Traded my silverado for a gas miser. It was a difficult decision to make. The camry has made the transition a bit easier than I anticipated. The car is simple and refined. It offers a good array of standard features at a reasonable cost. I am very pleased with the ride and comfort. The camry works well for me with or without my family. The four is peppy and I am very pleased with the standard stero. I suggest adding a spoiler to produce a bit of a sporty look to the otherwise family styled 4 door. The standard power driver seat is nice. The adjustable lumbar support is a nice feature that should be ulitized when traveling long distances.

My husband and I have been driving Toyotas for 35 years and have always been completely satisfied. Unfortunately, when we bought this car we didn't test drive it and what a mistake that was. It hesitates and jumps ahead on a steady basis, but you never know when. I really feel this is dangerous and we will never buy a Toyota again. It feels like it's struggling to get any pick up. I'm being told that this is because there's a device protecting the transmission. Sorry, Toyota, you messed up on this model. We are trading it in but not for another Toyota.

Toyota region declared a lemon and then insisted that at a time when 2005s are out we had to take an identical 2004 after waiting and inconvenience for 3 months. They were never concerned about our inconvenience or that my family's safety was at risk while they tried to fix it. Toyota customer service is no better and perhaps worse than others!!!

I thought I loved my 1996 Camry. Well, I was wrong. I LOVE my 2004 Camry, although I kept my 1996 and still enjoy driving it, too. But the 2004 is much improved, not only in handling, but comfort, mileage, etc. It is quieter and rides even smoother. I adore this car. Even with the a/c running and at speeds up to 80 mph, I get 36 mpg on the freeway. You just can't beat that. It is 100% reliable and great to take along friends, or the kids and their friends because everyone rides comfortably and happily. Well worth the $$. I'm quite sure that in a few years I will be purchasing Camry #3!

My review may not be very objective since I've had the car for less than a week. But I've wanted a Camry for a long time and this car doesn't disappoint. The ride is quiet and smooth and the LE comes with all the bells and whistles I wanted (power windows, locks, mirror, seats; CD and Cassette players; good A/C; keyless entry.) Last but not least, the reliability is legendary.

This is my first camry and I just love it! I traded in my 2002 aacordLX which was a great car but with a horrible rough ride. The camry rides on the same platform as the Lexus. If your looking for leather and a wood wheel buy the lexus,if you have the cash! The accord was all new for '03 but after a 15 min test drive at Toyota I didn't look at another accord. This car rides and is built superior to anything on the market, and blows honda away. After my test drive I took the car home that day! My father has had american cars all his life and when he drove the camry he went to the dealer and traded in his buick the very next day! mmmm go figure!

This latest Camry is smooth, powerful enough, quiet, comfortable and very easy to drive. My wife feels the same way about the car. So far no regrets.

I bought my 2004 4cyl automatic Camry LE at the end of March this year. I have already driven it to Altanta from Cleveland, Ohio and it did an excellent job. The Camry handled excellently at highway speeds, it accellerated nicely in the hills of Kentucky and Tennessee, and it got excellent gas mileage. Actually, my in-city gas mileage is even better since my trip. The handling could be a little tighter, but over all I love my car.

Please Please don't buy this car LE/XLE/SE V6 especially 5A. It tons of problems (check the forums / reviews) : 1. Very Very Poor Acceleration even a compact car would leave you behind. 2. Bad Fuel ecomomy. 3. Lots of rattles which would never go away.

Got a great deal in Atlanta, GA. New 2004 LE for $16,400 out the door (before taxes and title). Would recommend visiting the Atlanta area if you are looking for the best deal. This is the fourth car we have bought in the Atlanta area. We have always saved at least $1,500 over purchasing the car locally. So far the car has been great, no problems.

My 7th Toyota, this 2004 CamryLE was bought as a primary work car for my wife, replacing a 1992 CamryLE which in twelve years and 180,000 miles has been the LEAST expensive car I have EVER owned for overall maintinance and operating expense. The 1992 remains in the driveway as a dependable second car. Our third car is a 1988 CorollaFX hatchback with 230,000 miles and still going strong. I have been a mechanic for over 35 years (never for a TOYOTA dealership) and can vouch for the dependability and reliability of this superior product!

I do not own a Camry, but drove an LE rental for more than a week. The car had very few miles on it so it wasn't abused. Personally, I don't see what the attraction to Camry is outside of reliability. For myself, I'd trade a little reliability for a dash of excitement. The car is boring, in styling and in performance. It's well built, a comfortable cruiser, good for commutes, but I would never buy one unless I had to. It's just basic transportation at a premium. I think you folks need to shop around and experience some other brands, unless driving is not something you like to do.

Very dependable, and comfortable. Traded a 97 Buick Riviera, and the power is comperable, even with the loss of cubic inches, and cylinders, advances in design more than make up for it. I actually enjoy having 4 doors again, for ease of entry, and not having to move for in-laws that travel with us sometimes. Getting softer, or lazier as we get older. Highly recommend the Camry as a daily driver, and even a road car.

I went into the dealership looking for my first new car as a graduation gift from college. I went in expecting to buy a Scion xA ended up test driving the new 2005 corolla and then was convinced to try the Camry. Long story short, the Camry at below invoice with 0.0% apr was actually only $30 more than the new 2005 Corollas with the 4.9% apr offered. Great car, very roomy and drives like a dream.

Bought the Camry LE w/ABS over the Accord LX. Had both at my house for 48 hours. The Camry has a smoother and quieter ride, more room and looks more expensive. The Accord is a good car and superior to the Altima and Galant, but doesn't stack up to the Camry. The Accord is a little quicker and has sportier handling, but if I wanted that I'd buy a sports car not a 4 door sedan. I guess that's why the Camry is still outselling Accords. While testing the two cars I noticed that the Accord had a cheaper feel to it's interior, the Camry just felt like a more expensive car. My final verdict came after I drove both on the interstate, the Camry won hands down!

Did not notice this in the short test drive at the dealer's. Be sure to sit in this car for 15 + minutes before buying.

Tested a 2004 Toyota Camry LE and a Honda Accord LX. Purchased the Camry. The Camry was more comfortable, had a quieter smoother ride, and felt like a more expensive car. Although the Accord had a sportier feel, it falls short in other areas. The Accord would definetly be my second choice, but overall the Camry is the better choice in my opionion.

We purchased a 2004 Toyota Camry XLE in May of 2004. We have owned the Toyota brand before and were pleased with it reliability. To date, this vehicle has not disappointed us--it drives like a dream--no road noise, superior sound quality in the upgraded stereo system, very comfortable and room, power seats very easy to adjust in many different positions. Gas mileage has been as rated and interior design is very easy to get used to--the radio/cd/cassette controls are within easy reach. Auto temperature control feature is an excellent way to remain comfortable while driving. The direction indicator in the rear view mirror is also very helpful.

I can't believe that this vehicle has the reputation that it does! My vehicle has been in the dealership for 7 separate warranty problems. I have wasted too much of my own time in the dealership waiting for my car to be repaired. I have asked the dealer to make arrangements for appointments or a loaner to accomodate me for excessive problems with my vehicle and they are not willing to help. I will not buy another Toyota product.

I've had my Camry for 5 months. The noise from inside the car is very annoying. Two trips back to the dealer haven't solved the problem. Also have a fan belt noise when the heater/air conditioner is on and you start the car. They were not able to duplicate this in the shop. Other than those two things, the car seems to be fine.

I've owned three Toyotas, one of which was a Camry bought new in 1991. All three were driven well over 130,000 miles.All three provided unbelievable comfort, reliability and fuel mileage.The 91 Camry was sold at 201,000 miles with the ONLY repairs to original parts being both front struts after 170,000!! Our 2004 Camry LE 4cyl. has just 5,000 miles on it, but it has no rattles, appears to be even better made, is averaging over 30 mpg. in mixed driving and rides as well or better than previous Lexus, Infinity and Cadillac luxury cars I've driven. And the build quality, quietness, interior space and cargo area either match or exceed them as well.

The car has a very nice ride solid feel, roomie, and alot of comfort inside. And the full economy the best. Power is very good for a 4 cyl. I'll never buy a ford agian. The thing is the car has only 1,200 Mil. on it at this time. The Dealer was helpful as was the salesman. We had been to the ford dealer around the corner, to find that they added 10,000.00 to the MSRP of a Ranger. So I went to Precision and pick up a Camry and a Tacoma. 40,000.00 latter I see why Ford is #3 in the world they need to be #4 or 5.

I've only had the car for three weeks but so far I love it. The XLE has important standard features including ABS, larger 16 inch wheels and power seats, along with lots of other features too many to mention. The car is comfortable, roomy, quiet, and it rides and handles like a dream. Toyota knew what it was doing when it built this car. So far I've only driven it 200 miles in city driving so I haven't been able to gauge the fuel economy.

I received my LE as a company provided car. I had always driven domestic or Hondas prior to that. I was quite surprised to find the Toyota was as good as anything I had owned before. Frankly, I hadn't ever given Toyota a 2nd thought when making my purchases...that will all change now. The 4 cyl is a little weak at times, but over all acceptable in most situations. Fit and finish is excellent, however I do agree with a previous posting that the rear bumper is prone to scratching easily if accidently bumped with a bag or suitcase. Don't make the same mistake that I did. Give this car a close look when making your next car purchase.

The dash rattles, quirky transmission and problematic sunroof mar an otherwise excellent car. '02 & '03 models had the same rattles (due to windshield installation issues) but it appears the '04 models are no better. Transmission stutters when shifting from 1st to 2nd at 3,000 rpm. Sunroof refuses to close more than half-way, then you have to push it by hand.

I looked at Accord and Camry. Looking at the Honda I noticed a lot of fit and finish problems I had never seen on any of my previous 4 hondas. I then drove a camry and the comfort and feel was a big jump over, not only the civic, but the accord as well. The ride was so quiet, no engine noise, no creaks, no rattles and very very smooth. I owned a tacoma in the past as well and had 0 problems in the 4 years I owned it, never ever took it in. In the 8 months I owned my civic I had it in the dealership 3x for all different issues, last of which was a transmission problem at less than 6k miles. I guess its a good time to trade up to a toyota now.

The engine needs to be rebuilt, and the dealer takes a long time to order the part and unwilling to fix it in a timely manner. Servicepeople at the particular dealership have extremely bad attitudes. It's a big trouble. I can't say it's reliable from my horrible experience with this particular car. But I can say it's the worst new car I have ever bought.

After years of driving compact cars, I test drove a Camry as was hooked. With the air conditioning on full-blast, I could accelerate to 90 in seconds up a steep WV hill--with a 4-cylinder engine. In 35000 miles, I've had only comfortable rides, no mechanical problems, confidence when on the road late at night, and compliments on my taste in cars. I'll buy another Camry in 10 or 12 years, when I pass this down to my daughter.

Who needs a v6; the 4 is quite peppy. But the seat bottoms are firm to the point of near discomfort. Back seats do not fold down flat; thus a 6' ladder can't be pushed through because of the small opening.

My two other previous cars were Toyota Camry's.I had selected the Honda because my local dealership had a good lease offer. Toyota at the time "was not dealing". The difference I felt between the two was the Camry's ease at driving. The Honda felt stiff. The Honda's gas mileage wasn't as good as I had hope.We have become a toyota family. My husband purchased a Highlander and loves it.

My fourth Camry.

Built in Kentucky this is an "import" anyone could love. Good gas mileage, yet the model I have is fairly sporty and stylish. (My wife made me buy the sporty SE rather than my standard plain Jane model.) I'll put 50k miles on it and get another one.

After 20+ years of American products it's a pleasure driving the XLE. The ride is very quiet and smooth. I was really amazed the first time we drove it due to the handling and response to the steering wheel. My wife is the main driver and there are times when I think she thinks it's a race car. I have to remind her to keep it around the speed limit. Very quick on the highway and the 4 cyl. was a very good choice.

I can't say enough good things about it. The only possible problem is its fair/poor traction in the snow, without all-weather tires.

This car makes you feel like you paid in the $30k range when you paid a lot less. It rides very smoothly and it "floats" over bumps on the road. At idle you wouldn't think the engine is running. The stereo system sounds wonderful and the Power driver's seat is really a plus for standard features. You can get this car well below invoice price so shop around.

When shopping for a car I wanted a quiet ride, rich and spacious interior, great engineering, high resale value, adequate power, good looks and lot of features. I test drove several cars including different versions of the Camry and my choice is the Camry 4 cylinder XLE with the Premium Plus package. Got it for a great price, great financing and a free 4yr maintenance package. Love this car! The XLE w/prem plus makes the Camry truly a luxury car.

Car is comfortable to be driven, handling is good, excellent fuel economy on highway and city driving. Poor body paint job, thin and easily scratch by light bump. Trunk is quite large but trunk lid is made so light that it requires a push right on the center top of the lid. Automatic light sensor is not install as written in the manual, unlike on Corolla it comes standard. Overall this car offers good value for a family sedan.

With the premium package and safety package it has virtually every feature of the Lexus ES330. Good construction and quality materials and fit. I had a problem with the sunroof not closing -- something to do with the computer?? It made me wonder if more could go wrong, as this car has a lot more gadgets than I'm used to. There is a slight hesitation when you've almost stopped the car and then go again, like at a stop sign when you don't come to a complete stop. I'm 5'11" and have good head and leg room. It is well designed for a comfortable ride and I like the little cubbyholes around the driver.

I have driven large sedans made in America for years. I am now near retiremant and tired of the overpriced product that does not hold it's value and has what appears to be a short "shelf life" I searched many sites before I bought my car and 5 months later I can honestly say I love my Camry. I love the ride, the gas mileage I get, the look of the car but mostly I love the comfort that it provides.

I've owned my Camry now for 2 years. Prior to that I owned a Dodge Neon. It gave me more problems than it was worth. The Camry is one of the most comfortable, stylish, reliable, gas efficient cars I have owned. The details interior and exterior are beautiful. Toyota has a reputation of being built to last. I've known other people with 10 & 12 year old Toyotas. So I am confident I have a car that will last.

Now that makes a statement about the fine appearance of this car! I've driven an E-class before, and the smoothness and handling of this car ranks right up there with it. Just hoping the gas mileage improves as the car breaks in. 17 mpg is tough on the pocket book. If not, I'll still love it.

Camry continues to deliver a very reliable and practical package. Ride is comfortable and quiet, very quiet. In fact I would say it's on par or even better than some high-end luxury cars. This is my second V6 LE and I am not disappointed. The only gripe I have is the start up pick up and erratic / delayed shifting at start. The pick up issue can be overcome by flooring the gas. Overall, very happy with the choice I made. You get a lot of car for your $$ compared to the competition.

I'm sellin it for almost what I paid for it (on sale @ 15,688) since I put in the moonroof, spoiler and tinted window and the white car looks like the SE sport model and buying a 2004 Camry LE limited edition now that I am driving regular miles again. I love the cars handling, comfort, utility and mileage as well as performance and beelieve it to be the best car offered for the features and value it offers.

13,500 trouble free miles. Comfortable, even on long trips. Noticeably quiet with refined road manners compared to our '99 Accord EX. Excellent braking comes in useful in sudden stop traffic. Lots of useful space and compartments. Convenient access in/out. Only major complaint is transmission lag is quite noticeable, especially while merging with short windows of opportunity( Ex: On/Off Ramp = same lane).

My fourth Toyota, it was totaled at 6 months when i was t-boned by someone who ran a stop sign. GET THE CURTAIN AIRBAGS - THEY WORK. After 8200, miles i wanted to get something a little sportier as a replacement, but can't find the value/ mileage/ reliability/curtains,etc. so will likely buy another. As to resale- insurance gave me almost what I paid. Don't pay more than 86% of sticker.

We found the perfect mid size car, at a great price, Camry LE! We looked at the Honda Accord, Mits. Galent, Mazda 6, Subaru Legacy and many others in the $20,000 - $25,000 price range. The Toyota Camry offered everything we wanted, and it drove the smoothest! After test driving other cars, nothing compared to the Camry. This car offers many features that are standards for an afforadable price.

After 6 months I am still amazed at how smooth this car is every time I get into it. I only got this car because I needed a reliable car for low payments and Toyota was runnung a lease special. Even the most basic model is equipped and drives like a luxury car costing twice the price. Don't know how they get the performance they do out a 4 cyl 2.4L engine. The only problem - my wife and I argue who is going to get it every morning. Solution - looking at a Highlander to replace Taurus wagon.

Toyota is the ULtimate driving machine..

I love my Camry, it is the best for your dollars. Fit and finish is unmatched! As you may have read by now, European autos are NO match for Toyotas! I am getting another Camry in the XLE model, EXcept I'm getting leather this time around. 4 cylinder is all you need. Smooth, quiet, and powerful. Resale is superb! I sold it for as much as I paid for it. I put in 20K miles in 1.5 years time. Don't just think about getting it, JUST DO IT! Buy a Camry today, you'll love it!

All Toyota Camrys are very dependable cars. Great looks and handles like a dream. Last 2 Camrys had 200000 + miles when I gave them to my son because they both still were in great running condition. I think Toyota Camry is the Best Value for your money on the market today.

Bought the 2.4L LE car with automatic over the weekend. Toyota is offering $1000 cash back. With weakening dollar, Camry has 25% of parts made in Japan. Consumers are really getting bargain for the car. Horse power is sufficient more than enough for daily transportation, unless you desire more sporty. It gets best mileage among the class. This saves your money over the long run, plus you get better overall performance and safety. Some small cars do have even better gas mileage, but they are too light, lack of performance and safety.

I bought this car in August and this is the most comfortable car I ever drove. This is LE/auto(2003) at a great price of $17600(all taxes and registration included). Ride quality is excellent. Lot of room, large trunk and great mileage. Most important it is flawless-no trouble and is very dependeable. Only one thing I feel which needs to improvement -that LE comes with 15 inches wheel- which seems to be small with such a large size sedan. If you need 16 inches wheel then you have to go to SE or XLE.

I purchased this toyota in hopes of having a long lasting, high quality vechile. I felt the price was high, but for the supposed benefits, I bought it anyways. Then the problems started. Whenever I turned on the defroster, this clicking noise started. After three seperate trips to the dealership, it still was not solved. The gas milage I was getting was lower than my grandfather's Lesabre, which is a much larger car/engine. Then, at 17,543 miles, the head gasket blew. Problems arose when dealing with toyota over the warrenty, and finally they fixed it after I threatened legal action. Overall this car is not reliable or dependable.

I purchased my 2004 Toyota Camry on the 2nd of January of this year as a replacement to my 1996 Toyota Camry. There is a big difference between the two vehicles, this Camry has a much more roomier interior than the last one. The little extras sach as the power seats, the lighted rear-view mirror,the magazine pockets on the back of the front seats,the booming sound system w/CD player the illuminated cabin upon entering the vehicle, and the automatic shut-off of the same once the ignition is turned on and the outside temperature reading, imenities that in some vehicles you pay extra for, However, these were all included in the price of my vehicle.

The gearshift is not very smooth at times and hard to shift to the reverse gear. It needs to release the clutch totally before reengaging the reverse gear again. To shift to 2nd gear then reserve gear, but it didn’t help. The clutch is extra sensitive compare other cars that I had. The most annoying thing is the driver seat squeaks after two weeks old. I brought it back to the dealership on six occasions and they replaced the seat frame at the 3 visit. After the seat frame replacement, it started to squeak after a month. It jerks while driving the first 10 to 15 second. Warm up the car for 1 to 2 minutes before drive off, but it didn’t help.

My last Camry was a 1993 which now has 290,000 miles on it and is driven by our son every day. Our 2004 only cost $700 more than the '93 and is a better car with substantially more content and improvements. We get 32-36 MPG and think this is the best car you can possibly buy in this price range. It's quieter and better riding than a new Accord which is its only competition in my opinion. How can you fault an automobile that is this comfortable and quiet while delivering such good MPG? I'm not crazy about the style however all modern sedans have a generic look to them anyway.

Last Camry I bought in 1994 went 138,000 miles before I had any problems at all. My previous car was a 2001 Maxima, did'nt care for the harsh ride, and the car did'nt feel very tight. My new Camry is very smooth and it's really something to get such good gas mileage out of a full size car.

2004 Camry is our 4th Toyota car. We never had any problems with all other Toyota cars except normal wear. This Camry is very comfortable and fun to drive with manual transmission (manual transmission Camry in 2004 are all made in Japan). It drives very smoothly, powerful and has lot of space inside. It will be a very reliable car for many years to come. We trust Toyota's super quality and we love this car.

I love this vehicle. I traded up from a 2001 LE V6 Camry. The 2001 V6 Camry had slightly better pickup, but the 2004 has a much improved interior design (cup holders, map lights, arm rest compartment) and the 2004 Camry is way more comfortable. The interior controls are very easy to use. The XLE is loaded with added features and is well worth the extra money. The car is great on snow and ice (you don't need the traction control).

Excellent experience so far. I've had the car four just under four months and approximately 3000 miles. No problems what so ever. I particularly like its handling characteristics when driving in snow and ice. I would have liked a larger V6 but the current engine is satisfactory and has enough pep to make me feel confortable passing on two lane roads.

Bought the 4 and have been very satisfied with the engine power. Great mileage at 30 consistently. Huge trunk. A few issues: even with power driver's seat it is tough to find a comfy position; needs the telescoping & tilting wheel of the Sienna. It's difficult to read odometer in daylight (had dealer examine what I presumed was a defect, only to be told that's the way it is made!). With sunglasses it is impossible to read. Radio/cd sound is terrible and I'm no audiophile. Brakes are also on soft side as others have opined. But smooth, strong, quiet acceleration makes for nice ride. Paid 20M out the door incl ABS, NY sales tax (8.5%).

Fun car to drive, lots of room for both passengers and cargo. The great thing about the XLE is that so many features that are options on other car models are standard here. Initially the steering wheel was off center, but that was corrected. There is some wind noise and buzzing coming from the drivers side pilar that the dealer has not been able to pinpoint.

Every thing about this car is excellent - good torque, super quiet ride, powerful V6 3.3L engine (very responsive), and the immobilizer (anti- theft). The styling is very nice 100% nicer than the last generation Camry. One major problem is the new sluggish 5-speed auto transmission with super ECT-i. Toyota claims the new 5-speed transmission will provide smooth ride. This is only true when I am driving at above 45 mph. I can feel the transmission is hesitating from 2nd to the 3rd gear - totally unsmooth. To be safe, stick with 4-speed auto transmission.

After driving a 2000 Nissan Altima I was so excited to move over to a Camry. I have admired them for years and can't believe how well this one drives. Even though I have only owned it for a week, I can aleady tell we are going to be good friends for many years to come. I like how quiet and smooth it rides. My husband drove a Ford Explorer and the Camry has more room in it than the Explorer. Our family can have a conversation and everyone can hear it. So far...soooo good!

you can benchmark it against the lexus ES300. From quality to comfort, it is great. The ride is second to none,the 4 cyl is all you need, and you get great gas mil. The fit -doors,dashboard,seats is all perfect. buy this one and dollar for dollar you will not go wrong. Don't be fooled and purchase something cheaper you will get what you paid for.

I moved up to this mid size from a 96 VW Golf. It is smooth, quiet, great on windy days on a bridge, with a spacious interior. Fit and finish are tops, as are features, even with the stripped down version I purchased. It is not as much fun to drive as my Golf-Steering is a bit light. To quote an elderly family member-" the colors and features are nice, but it just doesn't thrill me." Acceleration is very good- all weather tires in snow are just OK- will get snow's next year. Mileage does not match specs. Others more impressed with it than I. After 13 years of VWs, my reaction is perhaps not surprising.

Having owned seven Toyotas over the years, I find the Toyota Camry to be the most reliable and most functional sedan of the Toyota family. Also, most of my friends who previously drove Fords, Lincolns, BMWs, and Saabs have migrated to the top-end Camry models. There are reasons why this sedan outsells all others.

I love my Camry!!

This is my first car ever, and I love it. It's cute, so it's attractive to younger people (me) but my dad also loves it. My mom kept saying that back seats have much leg room. You can't hear the engine running either inside or outside the car. Also, the sound system isn't all that bad either!

I purchased my Camry and it was my first toyota I have ever had. I have always bought honda. When I researched and compared the new Camry to the new Hondas it was hands down the best choice I could ever make. I've owned three hondas and I will NEVER go back to Honda again. The quality of the Toyota is unbeliveable.

Wish I had bought something else.

My review is on the 2003 Camry LE that we owned that was involved in an accident on Thanksgiving Day. The accident occurred when an SUV lost control and came across 3 lanes of traffic, causing us to slam into the front-driver side at about 45 mph. Our Camry was a total loss as a result of this accident, but no one was seriously hurt. The passenger compartment was untouched except for the airbags deploying. The engine compartment took the brunt of the collision and performed beautifully. Prior to the accident, we loved the car. After the accident, we now know just how safe this vehicle is. Once we settle with insurance, we are buying a 2004 Camry LE.

At first we were excited to getting this car, then the excitement faded and came stress from taking it back to the dealership to get it fixed. Three times in a bout 7 months the same problem is happening. We are hoping it will happen again so the lemon law will work and we could return the hunk of junk and get all of our money back.

I think the dealer made a mistake and gave me a $50,000 Lexus instead of the $19,000 Camry that I bought. At least it feels like it. The car is great. It does everything right.

This is a nice car but LE with 15" tires are not conveniant to drive when the weather is windy, wet or snow. The reason is; you almost can not control the car. Vehicle scid control must be standard in all LE's. After paying 19.000$ or plus, everybody ecpects a perfect driving experience.

Paid 22k for special edition Camry (too much?)- sun roof, JBL stereo, special paint, ABS, side air curtain. Only driven around town so far, but am impressed with build quality so far.

This car buying experience was very pleasant,an all day pursuit, but well worth it in the end....the dealership is very new and very professional, and this car as we had it equipped is awesome.The Camry XLE is a well built and functional car, I am pleased with the vehicle and the dealer. I would recommend moving up to the XLE if you want a Camry...this Camry is really a better buy than the Avalon XL..as far as value for the dollar

I just bought a Phanton Gray 2004 Camry LE 4cyl with options like ABS brakes, moonroof, aerodynamic wing, and carpet/cargo mat set a couple of weeks ago and I love this car. It is one of the smoothest, most comfortable cars I have ever owned. All this in a near luxury ride without the cost. The engine is so quite, many times I can't tell it is running unless I push down the gas pedal! The car accelerates and handles very well. Good amount of power for your average person. I wish the domestic car makers would take lesson with Toyota or Honda and produce as dependable cars that would last a lifetime and keep their resale value.

Very sharp car... performance in the V6 is key, as the 4 cylinder we test drove was a little sluggish in acceleration. Ride is smooth and leather interior is quite luxurious. Trunk space is great, along with a large backseat. You'll pay up for the V6 with leather, but I believe it is worth it. This car reminds me of a Lexus for thousands less.

i purchased a Camay on the suggestion of a car dealer friend. it was the best thing that ever happened to me. totally free of expensive operation. better ride and comfort, ease of driving, roomy interior, i can never go back to that big all consuming durango. when i drove my suv it would seem like i was always stopping for gas and it hit my wallet hard. I estimate I am saving $100.00 a month just on gas and just the inconvenience of constantly having to stop for gas is a pain. The ride is much better and the easy effortless driving of the Camay is a pleasure, leaving me refreshed after a long ride.for the difference of size i did not give up that much room.

This is a great car, very quiet ride at high speeds, comfortable seating position and seats, smartly laid out interior with a large guages and buttons. Build quality is top notch and the V6 engine is powerful and quiet. This car also soaks up bumps and poor pavemnet very well. Having driven several Lexus vehicles in the past, this car really feels a lot like Lexus in the way the car rides.

I owned a 1998Camry LE V6 and could not have been happier. My new 2004 Camry SE V6 is more luxurious, handles better at high speeds and is mavelously comfortable. The styling, while a repeat of last year is sleek and expensive looking. I own a car for transportation purposes, not because I like cars; however, this is one car I really like to drive.

This is a well-designed car. The decision to buy this model was mostly influenced by Consumer Reports. The drive is smooth and quiet. The trunk is spacious and the rear seats fold down for longer cargo. The rear seat has air conditioning ducts the kids love. The 4 cylinder engine has ample power and accelerates quickly when needed. Finally, the XLE model has lots of great features.

Still Simply the Best

I love the Camry and have for many years and now this one has rekindled the love. No wonder its the best selling car in the country! Silky smooth, elegant, very practical and ergonomically engineered, excellent gas mileage and looks and feels like a state-of-the-art player that should cost alot more. I looked at several nice cars in the <30k range and for my money the Camry XLE was by far the better choice. Roomy but not the "big- empty" feeling. If you are considering a family sedan and don't at least look at the Camry you definately can't make an educated decision because this is one to be reckoned with. I know this is the best car I could have bought.

Wonderful!

I checked out the Accord EX with Leather. MSRP is the same. Camry won out because of more luxury features and quieter ride. I also found the driver's seat to be more comfortable in the Camry, although I have some issues with the Camry in that regard, too. Accord had better handling and acceleration, although the Camry's handling is good and the acceleration is adequate for the type of driving we do, which is mostly city streets.

After nearly one year and near 18,000 miles this is the first new vehicle we have owned with zero defects. Gas mileage exceeds highway sticker often. The 4 cyl engine can spin the front wheels on dry pavement. By mistake I once got to 100 mph and it was so smooth. If you don't use cruise you will be at 80 before you know it. Wheel disks poor design—can be damaged on curbs. Light gray mats impractical. Otherwise, a perfect car—our 2nd Camry.

Excellent to drive, best car ever.

Hands down, you will never find another vehicle like the Camry that is as reliable, comfortable, stylish, and holds its value so damn well...sure, you may pay a little more up front, but you will more than make up for it in the long run, This is one car that won't nickel and dime you to death like a "domestic car" (even though the Camry is made right here in the USA)...also, its resaleability is second to none.
