Just bought my new 07' Blue Ribbon Camry SE V6 last 5/21/06 and so far it has been nothing but pure exhilaration. The car's handling and performance is bar none. The power to weight ration is the best in its class. With it's fuel economy and track record reliability, no other V6 sedans can even compete with it. I've had so many people approach the car and asked "Is that the new 2007 Camry?" The interior is defenitely a high end Lexus feel. Perforated leather seats that are heated. The JBL 8 speaker sound system is just awesome. I've researched and shopped every V6 sedans out there on the market and I am extremely pleased that I purchased this car. The purchase experience was just supperb. The Toyota dealership gave me the red carpet treatment and was curtious from the beginning to end. They made the deal so good that I forgot where I was at. "Thanks Lustine!" I highly recommend for anyone in the market to just give this car a spin, the experience will never be thesame....read morehide

- Good fuel economy, 268hp, GREAT fit and finish, Looks good!
- Acceleration is still a bit laggy
Test drove it today, a Red (favorite color out of the bunch) 2007 Camry V6 SE. We went into the dealership knowing we wouldn't walk out with it (quoted a 24,740 out of door price by a broker) It handled a lot better than my current 2004 Camry V6 LE, looks a lot better to. One gripe is the lag on the gas pedal, my current Camry has this problem, but it's a lot more severe. On the SE, not so much, but still present, go drive one, you'll see what I mean. The sport bucket seats are very supportive, while changing freeways there was a right curve rated at 30mph, the Camry took it easily at 50mph, pretty impressive. The 'tiptronic' didn't do too much for me, I'll probably leave it in 'D' most if not all of the time. Again, this car is 100% Toyota, sure, it might be a bit bland to some, but honestly, with it's relability, decent performace, good price (USE A BROKER!!! I ONLY GOT IT DOWN TO 25,300 without one!!) it's a pretty good buy. I always read reviews of cars, but if you're seriously looking into buying a new V6 Sedan, you should definately test drive this one....read morehide

- Near perfect car, at least for me
- Dealers won't deal
Have been researching sedans on the Internet for a year now, as I'm planning to replace my 2001 Buick LeSabre by August when my extended warranty runs out. Have two small but rapidly growing kids, so need decent rear seat room, and am looking for a nice combination of power, comfort, handling and value.
My short list after researching and test driving a lot of cars, before release of the Camry, included the Audi A3 DSG, VW Jetta GLI DSG, Infiniti G35 sedan and Sonata LX V6. Of these, my preference was for the Sonata. The DSG system on the VW products is impressive, enabling a 200 HP engine to achieve 0-to-60 times in the mid-6's with excellent MPG, but VW's reliability record and assembly problems worry me, and the rear seat room is barely adequate. The Sonata LX has the best combination of power, safety, comfort and features at a great price (around 19,500 including freight with current rebates), but the handling is definitely boatlike and the AT a little weak.
The new Camry is Toyota's answer to the Sonata: nice styling, excellent power, relatively decent MPG (though not as good as the EPA figures), lots of standard safety features, and a better ride than the old Camry. I test drove both the LE and SE V6's and could definitely feel the difference in the suspension and handling. The SE handles nicely, almost as good as the MazdaSpeed 6, which would be on my list if available with a manual transmission.
Like the MazdaSpeed 6, the spoiler and extra body molding on the SE is understated, enough to give the car a sharper look without looking like a teen toy. The MazdaSpeed beats the Camry on brakes and has a definite edge in handling, but it's a smaller and slightly more expensive car.
I like the S (sport) setting on the Camry's 6-speed AT. The Jetta and A3 (same car, really) have that feature as well, though the difference in setup is more pronounced on the VW. You leave it in D for ordinary driving to get the best MPG, and switch is to S when you want to make full use of the horses. The VW DSG is so slick that it's actually faster 0-to-60 than a competently-driven MT. The Camry's S setting isn't quite that tight, and I'd like to see a stronger distinction between S and D in future models. Still, it's a nice feature, and the 6-speed AT is smooth, clearly better than the Sonata's.
The problem is that the Toyota dealers aren't dealing. They know they've got a hot car and are milking it. Dealer upcharges in my area are common. They'll go down to invoice and then take the difference out (and then some) from their offer on the trade. Which means that a comparably equipped Camry LE costs $5500 more than the Sonata, and if you want the the SE, which usually comes with extra junk, it'll run quite a bit more. While it's possible that I'd get some of that back in resale, the SE just isn't worth that much. If I have to pay that much, I'll go for a G35 with the end-of-year discounts due to the model change....read morehide

- Camry SE Steals the show- beautiful car, 31 mpg, performance and handling are tight. Saved $1000!
- tilt seats in the rear only comes in the xle style- but appearance package make up for it!
After test driving many cars.... (looking for 30 mpg min.) BMW, Accura,Honda, VW...The Camry V6 with it's sport supension and acceleration stole the show.
Ended up getting the silver color exterior and smoke interior (only available on the SE version) The 440 watt stereo is sweet too.
On the day I bought my Toyota, I knew I wanted the SE version. I had shopped the internet try to get a great price... and the Toyota dealer by my house shot me a note back they have the car msp at 29,300 and they would sell it to me at 27,900... Wow what a great deal.... NOT.....
I visited another dealer in my market on buying day and they had a black SE and I asked them if they would it sell today for 27,500? They came back with a YES... told them I was going to meet my wife for lunch... and wanted her to test drive the car...
Actually went outside and got my cell phone and call another dealer... asked for the General Manager... told him I was going to buy a car today and was at another dealership in town... and told him if he would sell me their SE for 27,000 I would drive over and buy it right now... he checked his books and guess what... yep... I bought my Camry SE for 27,000 dollars.
True Story!...read morehide

- Sharp styling, ride compares to my wife's Lexus, interior finish very good
- AC is not cold enough
Very nice ride. The SE model sets itself apart from the Camry SE and SLE. Finishes are very nice. Leather seating is sporty yet comfortable. Stereo system is excellent. Handling and steering very responsive. V-6 engine provides ecellent power.I would recommend this car to all.

- 268hp, appearance, great accelleration
- Center console is boring; knobs, buttons, and letters look blown up and out of proportion
I test drove this '07 SE V6 and I was quite impressed. It has a killer engine with the most horsepower and best accelleration in its class. The interior is nice and refined. I didn't really like the huge wide center console. They look over magnified. I'm considering an '06 Honda Accord EX-V6 since it is cheaper when similarly equipped as the Camry. The Camry can get quite expensive when adding many of the options that come standard on the Accord. I prefer the Camry's exterior versus the Accord. However, I prefer the Accord's interior versus the Camry. Either way, either one of them is a smart choice. They have the best resale values among their competitors....read morehide

- Great looks, Superb Pickup, Responsive steering, Smooth ride
- Stereo panels extra big & extra bright
Well, I Test drove the new Camry last week. I immediately fell in love with this car. The V6's super acceleration bold me over. The handling of the car was great at high speeds and the steering was very responsive. The braking was good but not excellent (I suppose Honda Accord brakes better). The black leather seats were very comfortable and had a luxurious touch. The JBL sound systems was great and had alot of punch in it. From the outside the car looks really cool. In all a great great car to have......read morehide

- Strong v6, good gas mileage, Solid Handling for size of car
- In order to keep prices down some cost cutting in Interior pieces.
I got it and I must say it is a fun car. I rented a Accord V6 for a week to see if I would love it. It is a beautifully made car, but a tad Monotonous. The Media always describes it as fun, the the Toyota as boring. The SE model I have does not pitch its front end of soft damping like the Accord does. The Accord is very front end heavy, and very long distances for hard braking. The Camry SE has firm damping, and good handling. The V6 is a hoot to drive. I had it a week and I averaged about 25mpg in my first tank (with 269hp!). Its still new...it can only go up. The DOHC dual VVTi V6 really makes the Honda SOHC J series V6 very dated. The Accord is a great car, but the Media just sells you a different image than the car has.My cousin has the old Camry and that too is a very boring car, however the refinement and quality is top notch. I test drove a manual V6 Accord to see if I would like that better ( I've always had manual transmissions) but it too seem a little out of place. I had a 1997 BMW 4 door M3 and I loved that car. I looked at the new 3 series and loved it, but being older and investing my money for rainy days,made me look at the Accord and Camry.
The new Camry is good and a great value with the V6. I recommend it for people wanting a good four door V6 at a good price with decent Braking and Handling. If you judge a car by a sound system, or if it has XM radio...well I don't know what to say. The new 6 speed Automatic shifts smooth. The Accord has a few more features, but I've always been a lover of great engineering. The V6, the transmission, the chassis, the braking. These thing are what is important to me. Not XM radio. If you are looking to buy an Accord V6 look at Honda's Excellent Acura TL (accord based), it has all the toys and 270 hp....read morehide
