2006 Toyota Camry
There are 49 user reviews for the LE trim shown below
- Lots of room, large trunk, gas mileage acceptable for the size and a V6
- transmissiondoes seems a bit clunky when taking off quickly
It has been a good car so far (9 months) only had one warranty issue. Decent in all other respects. My only cern is the transmission is very clunky and awkward when abruptly accelerating or braking, it kinda clunks. The dealer said it was just how that type of fron whell drive transmission performs.

- Great fuel economy, comfortable and reliable.
- Light steering took some getting used to.
Bought my 2004 LE, 4 cyl. w/auto trans ten months ago. It was used, with 34,000 miles and was Toyota Certified (100,000 warranty on the powertrain).
I commute 120 miles RT to work and frequently drive another 40-200 miles each day for outside work. Even with a lot of time in heavy Dallas/Ft. Worth traffic I average around 32 MPG! I change the oil every 5,000 miles. Thus far routine maintenance is all that has been needed.
There is a very slight buzz in the left, front speaker once in a while. No other problems.
My BMW-driving daughter was surprised at the great quality of the radio when she first rode in it. The ride is quiet and smooth, but I will change the Goodyear tires to Michelin or Dunlop once they require replacement. I've had no problems or complaints with the brakes at all. It took about a week to get used to the light/responsive steering at first. Not a problem, just an adjustment from my '92 Acord....read morehide

- thruway speeds (80 mp+) very smooth.good on back roads. 2004 w 55k, no repairs better than the Aval.
- poor paint job (pits). Sometimes jerks forward at slight touch of pedal
excellent ride at high and low speed, great turning radius, 55k with diverified conditions on 2004 LE, no repairs of any kind needed. Handles much better than the Avalon I traded in, which had some problems. have had 3 Camrys and an Avalon, and all have been excellent overall
Seats are comfortable, mileage 28-33. Accelleration not great, so plan ahead!...read morehide

- Great fuel economy, quiet ride, smooth....
I've had my 2004 Camry for over two years now, and enjoy getting in it as much today as day one! 30,000 plus miles and it's never given me a problem. (Which is more I can say for it's predecessor from Chrysler.) Comfortable to drive, great sound system, 30+ mpg, and sufficient hp for a 4-cylinder. I love this car!!!...read morehide

- Luxurious, smooth, dependable and the best dealer with best after service
I worked as a sale for Toyota briefly like 6 months. I worked other dealers but this dealer management was one of the best.
The while I sold the cars test drove many of them with client and myseof finally, when I purchase 06 Camry. It was the very best with decent MPG. The simple front 3 knobs for aircon and other controls perfect. I love the the electric seat adjusting and the lumbar support.
Have 18 months at 18000 miles with no, nada, problem at all. It did not have even a faulty em\ngine light on at dashboard for whole 18 months. The best quality. Whenever I ride, I feel I am rididng Lexus at the price of Camry. Can not be better. I am in love of snow white Camry that I got when I purchased when I got a finance director job at county. What a joy... I do not really jeaous even for Cadillac.
I was so mad my small Cadilac as it has probelm in winter. That was the end of my leve with Cadilac. But this Camry is about half of the Cadilac price and the best can I have ever owned for my 40 year career, I understand why Toyota is going to take over GM soo as top manufacture.... The dealer is also very important for after service. Mine does the best in town. They treat you like King whenever comes in for oil change. They are fast and efficient, and economic 14.95 for oil changes and fluid filling for life time. and then at the end they wash your car. So when I go there for oil change, what I am getting is a new Camry shining like hell. This Snow white is a winner and I am so happy. I vought Corollar for my daughter and my next car is definitely Lexus or if I can afford Camry again. I would not trade with Cadillac. Why???...read morehide

- excellent fuel economy for it's size, functional & egonomic interior, extremely comfortable ride
- brakes could be a bit more sensitive, torque on the 4-cyl a little bit lacking
I drive about 100 miles a day and get combined 32+ mpg. On pure highway, I can get up to 38 mpg (Corolla numbers). I'm not a lead foot power hog, so I opted for the I-4. Although owning my new Camry for 8 months (18000 miles w/ absolutely no problems to report), the torque could be improved a bit for quicker acceleration. Also, the brakes could be tweaked for more firmness during emergency stops. Other than that I have nothing to complain about. I bought the car for safety, fuel efficiency, reliability, and durability. I especially like the optional curtain air bags.
My Camry was assembled in Japan. The powertrain components (engine and transmission) are Japanese parts. The car is 20% Japanese parts with 80% North American parts. It is the best combination I could find. I would recommend checking the white sticker on the driver side rear window just to see where that particular Camry was built. I stayed away from the ones that are built in Lexington, KY for a reason. Perhaps many of the postings are from owners with Camrys built in Lexington. Don't ever say quality control isn't important. The same exact car, only built in two different places. Workmanship makes a world of difference!!...read morehide

- I have a 98 LE 124,000 miles no problems at all. Car is still more quiet than a new Accord
- Front seat is too short. Not enough support. No other complaints
I bought this car used from a Rental Car Dealer. It was 11 monthhs old with 16,800 miles. I changed the timing belt and water pump at 109,000 miles, book said replace at 90,000 miles.I have replaced the Brakes once and am on my third set of tires. I change the oil every 3,000 miles and one Tune-up.I have had NO OTHER PROBLEMS with this car. The only reason I may not buy another Camry is the front seat is the worst car seat I have ever sat in. Consumer Reports readers have complained about the front seats for years. I don't know why Toyota has not corrected the problem....read morehide

- reliable, safe, comfortable car. Great value
- Styling, ok is a little old (IE my grandparents would feel at home in it)
Who ever gives this or any Toyota less than a three is, well and idiot! Those same people regardless of what make, model and manufacturer would have the same problem:........ They are idots! Dont listen to them. This is a good car, reliable stable car that will drive thousands of miles (yes you have to do preventative manintnence: reference to the idiots.) Ok, the look of it is old but willing to sacrifice style to have a car that lasts. IE dont buy GM or FORD until the workforce shake up is done. Those workers do not care about what they put out, just that they get paid! Enough, want value purchase this, want bucket seats, your couch from the family room, purchase from GM or FORD, but you will pay in service!...read morehide

- I get very good mileage on my 06 Camry LE - runs great.
- I have an intermittant buzzing vibration on the driver's side - just started two weeks ago.
This is my 3rd Camry (1991, 2000, 2006). I don't particularly like the '07 so by the time I am ready for another Camry I know it will have changed a couple more times. I love this one, it's pretty and classic. However, it just developed a slight buzzing vibration in the driver's side door that comes and goes after having this car 4 months! I am afraid if I take it in like the service dept suggested - that they won't HEAR it or can't fix it and then what? The weird thing is I never know when it's going to do it. I think it could eventually drive me insane! I'm picky about noises. I also wish it rode a little smoother like my 2000. But other than that buzzing annoyance, I truly love it!!! Maybe it will disappear eventually as the car gets older....read morehide

- Spacious, price, quality, etc
- Appearance is not great
PLEASE IGNORE THOSE NEGATIVE REVIEWS YOU'VE BEEN READING. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING A CAMRY FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW, AND HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED ANY MECHANICAL PROBLEMS OR SUBSTANDARD CUSTOMER SERVICE.
We purchased a Camry LE back in June 2005 since we have now have a baby daughter and wanted a larger safer car.
The ride is smooth and acceleration is reasonable (I don't care if this car can go from 0 to 60 in 5 seconds). A colleague recommended the V4 instead of the V6 and I'm glad I listened to him. A V4 is more fuel efficient and provides adequate power. I feel comfortable on the highway and can acclerate to pass a car if necessary.
There is plenty of room inside and the trunk is very spacious! We can fit the baby stroller AND numerous other things. Very family friendly!
There are so many "little" things that Toyota has done well with the Camry. For example, the fuel gage indicator has an arrow to tell you which side the fuel tank opening is (I tend to forget the side!). Another example is the radio attena - it is part of the rear window and is not noticable....read morehide
