2004 Toyota Camry
There are 1 user reviews for the SE V6 trim shown below
- Incredibly quiet and smooth
- Serious flaw in "drive by wire" system
When driving my Camry SE V6 with 5 speed automatic transmition at speeds over 40 MPH then reducing speed due to traffic or to turn there is a marked delay in throttle and transmission response on re-acceleration, dangerously slow when changing lanes on the freeway. When the engine and transmission finally due kick in, the tachometer jumps to redline and the car rockets forward!
After returning the car tothe dealer for inspection they informed me that the throttle and transmission are electronically controlled via an onboard computer and that there are no fixes or adjustments that can be made to remedy this problem. They suggest dropping the gear shift lever to 2nd to get faster response. The service manager also informed me that they had other �upset� customers with the same complaint.
As long as I own this car I will have to adjust the way I drive to make up for what can only be called a deficiency in the design. This is the first Toyota I have ever purchased. I now own an incredibly quiet, comfortable car with a powerful engine dragging a ball and chain behind. If there is not a quick resolution to this problem this Camry will also be the last Toyota I will ever purchase....read morehide
