- Toyota commertials
- Transmission problems
I have this car for 6 mo the car has been to the dealer 4 times with
acceleration and transmission problems. Toyota commertials about
reliability is ridiculous. It is time to admit that Toyota is chicken not
a super company. Our own car mach more attractive,reliable and
performs much better. Time to buy American cars, I learn my lesson.
I am going to traid this "reliable" car as soon as possible....read morehide

- Looks great, good power in higher gears, lots of room, nice JBL sound system, good mpg for V6
- Transmission issues, very poor acceleration for 268 hp, bland ride, blind spots
Overall, although I do have some issues with it, I think this is a really good car. I had a '96 Camry for a long time, and this car is a major improvement over it in just about every area. The VVT comes in really handy in higher gears, and there's tons of room for a mid-sized sedan. I think it looks a lot better than its competitors, especially the Accord Sedan. I really like the look of the instrument panel and the heated front seats, which I thought was just a dumb gimmick, but turned out to be really nice on the bum. The car itself is a smooth ride. Nothing fancy, but it is comfortable and quiet. The power of the V6 really shows itself in higher gears, such as on the freeway. The JBL audio system sounds awesome! This is a big deal to me, because I love my music, and the sound system in my car better be really good. This one is!
However, I've noticed that there are many complaints about the transmission in the Camry, and mine is no different. Every morning, when I first get on the road after the car has been sitting out in the cold all night, I get a fat rpm spike between 3rd and 4th gear. It is pretty annoying. I took it in once to get it fixed, but the service guy said there wasn't really anything they could do. He basically said the same thing about the irritating delayed acceleration that Toyota cars are known for. They really need to update the computer chip, or whatever stupid program they put in there that tries to learn your driving habits and adjust to them. I think it is negatively affecting the transmission overall. Whatever stuff they did to the SE that was supposed to give it a sportier performance did not really work. Anyways, the transmission issues were what mainly knocked off the one star from this review. Some other minor issues include the bluetooth. It is very hard to hear people through the bluetooth on the freeway, but I think it is more a problem with my cell phone than the car. There are some blind spots that are a little frustrating at times, but you get used to it.
Obviously, the negative part of my review is greater than the positive, but I really believe overall this is a very good car. This may not seem like a 4 out of 5 star review, but I really do like this car a lot. Honestly, the other issues are so minor, if Toyota just fixed the transmission issues that are so common in them, then this would easily be a 5 out of 5 star car in my opinion. The delayed acceleration and transmission issues are probably less of a problem for me than maybe for other people who like to "punch" it and "gun" it a lot....read morehide

- Nice looking car and great ride at high speed
- Transmission shifting is jerky, brakes feel soft, ride is too stiff
I bought this car with the idea that I was buying what comes with the Toyota brand which is reliability, fair price, excellent gas mileage and overall good value. Well, after driving this car for almost five months now with about 4100 miles on it, I am experiencing a problem with the transmission. Tachometer shows higher RPM's but transmission delays shifting into gear causing a slight whip lash to my neck. It first occurred while going up a slight incline where I needed to put more pressure on the gas pedal and then immediately slowed down due to traffic only to have the traffic then speed up again. Today, while traveling around 60 miles an hour on a freeway I slowed down to around 45 miles and hour due to slowing traffic and then the transmission did it's delay shiffing as I was trying to speed back up to 60 miles an hour. Also, when trying to "punch it" to speed up in a short distance sometimes the transmission seems to hesitate. Also, the dash board is making rattling noises and the rear suspension is making noises when ever I go over a bump. Also the brakes feel soft and sometimes they are squeaking when the car is cold.
All in all, I wish I had never bought this car and had bought the 2006 Acura TL even though that car was about $6k more. DO NOT BUY THIS CAR! I would suggest the Honda Accord or Acura TL....read morehide

- Looks good
- Transmission freaks out, dash rattle and seats stink
Have had mine since Aug '06. From day one the dash has rattled, my back is in constant pain as the seats and steering wheel do not mesh and the driver cannot find a comfort zone. The Transmission has a mind of its own, loses power when desperatly needed and shoots up in RPM's when there is no change in the amount of pressure on the gas pedal. Taking corners at any speed makes the transmission freak out and start to downshift and lose power and lunge. As for the gas mileage, I'm getting no where near what the sticker says. After reading all the similiar reviews I am hesitant to take to shop for issues stated above, I guess I will be told its "Normal." What a crock!...read morehide
