The only time it is an issue is if the temps are in the 80's and I choose to leave the windows open. The air coming through the vents sometimes gets warm.
I've only had the car two months so I am still figuring everything out. Love the gas mileage.

Agree on the gas mileage!

You can prevent that by turning the system to maximum cooling and then turning it off. By simply turning off the reheat/remixing door/vane may be left in a position wherein a goodly portion of the "natural" airflow is heated.

Thanks wwest. I'll give that a try tonight.
While I have everyone's attention, has anyone upgraded their radio in the Camry? the stock radio is pretty boring.

You have an LE with the 3-button manual climate control, correct? If so, I just discovered, similar to what wwest was saying, is if you simply turn on the fan, then hit the inset button to select "recirculate" (green light turns on), and finally turn off the fan, you won't get any airflow through the vents.
Both of my Camrys have the optional JBL setup (factory option) and I'm pleased with the sound.

I have posted on here once before regarding the ABS making clicking sound at 7-11 mph which I understand is normal, but recently I have noticed a very very faint clicking sound (same noise as 7-11 mph) occur at 20 mph. Why would this occur twice and why is the second one so faint? Are two clicks normal at different speeds?

I never experienced any click at 20mph.
When we first got our 2007, I immediately noticed the first clicking as we were backing out of the garage every morning. I thought it was a problem, diagnosed it down to being the ABS system, then read up about the self test that it was doing and found the owners manual reference to it. If there was a 2nd click at 20, I never heard it or paid any attention to it.
I can tell you that for what seems like the longest time now (at least a year or maybe even two), I don't even hear the self test anymore. I know the ABS is still working correctly, as I've tested it in real driving situations!

After reading your response I have noticed a very very faint clicking at 20 mph. Sometimes I hear it and sometimes I do not. Have you received confirmation from anyone else if this second click is normal? Once again, the second one as you describe is LESS noticeable. The car has to be quiet (no radio, air, windshield wipers etc...) and you really have to concentrate to hear it. The one I hear is extremely FAINT. Curious to hear what you think or what else you found out.

You responded to my first response regarding the ABS noise. I have a follow up question. After reading responses and talking to Toyota I realize that the clicking sound at 7-11 mph is normal, but recently I have noticed a very very faint clicking sound (same noise as 7-11 mph) but occurs at 20 mph. The noise at 20 mph is very very faint and you really have to be listening and concentrating to hear it. Best heard when no noise (radio, air, windshield wipers etc...) Why would this occur twice and why is the second one so faint?

Tried it yesterday and it worked as well.
I have the basic radio. I'm not a music connoisseur but I would like to have RDS and HD.
