I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question, but will give it a try. I'm getting sick of all my friends telling me how good the Camry is so I suppose I might as well buy one. I will probably get a 2006 with a v-6 and the question is about pulling a trailer. I believe it is rated as being able to tow 2000 lbs. I've seen hundreds of Camrys on the road but cannot recall ever seeing one pulling anyting of substance. So my question to all you Camry owners out there is this........How many of you pull trailers and how does the Camry do? I presently have a Ford Taurus and pull a 1600 lb boat easily, but the Ford has to go, so am wondering about the Camry. I have until October to make up my mind. Any thoughts you folks have would be appreciated. Thanks

#81 of 108 Just bought one!
Aug 18, 2005 (11:20 am)
Hey All...I just my 1999 Toyota Camry LE last night, and I'm so excited! It is my first car (I'm 20) and I felt that I should get the most reliable, safe and fuel efficient car I can find. Found it with the Camry, and with great trunk space to boot! It has 97K miles, and the previous owner treated it very well. What a smooth ride!
One thing though. I want to add a cd changer to the car...but I have no idea where in the trunk to place it. I didn't see any mounts in the trunk, do I have to buy them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I enjoyed your post. Coincidentally, I am very close to buying the exact same car you mentioned. A 99 Camry LE. How much did you pay for it? I'm curious to see what a good rate is.
To answer your question, the car I am looking at does have a cd player in the upper part of the trunk. When you open the trunk, it was placed near the top right side of the truck, from like the ceiling. I guess it could be placed other places as well. The guy said he had it professionally installed a year ago for $500 for a 6 CD changer.
Ok, hope to hear back from you.

Hello, all you Camry owners. I'm now in your club -- bought my first Toyota a couple of months ago. It's a red '05 XLE V6 with all options except navigation. Also, to make it stand out from the millions of other Camrys, I had a double custom paint stripe put on, chrome wheel moldings, and a cinnamon roadster top with Toyota emblems on each side. Sharp! The cinnamon top is light tan with a burgundy fleck through it -- very subtle. I've gotten lots of compliments on it. Some people think it's a convertible. Almost 2K miles on it already and so far I love it. My other car is a 12 year old Mercury Grand Marquis with 202K miles that I bought new. The Camry is certainly a change from the Merc, but a lot nicer in many ways. I hope to have it for quite a few years. If I knew how to post a picture, I'd do it.
#87 of 108 using synthetic oil in the transmission
Sep 18, 2005 (8:50 am)
I have an 05 camry and will soon be changing my first oil for the transmission I see that toyota uses a type iv trans fluid I have found a synthetic fluid from amsoil that says it works in the new camry transmission does anyone know about amsoil fluid and does it work. I also am trying a K&N air filter to help get better gas mileage and put on a flow master muffler I have gotten 3 miles improvement to the gallon so far. I also put a transmission cooler in line with the radiator to help cool down the trans fluid since in California we sit in traffic all day, and I was told by a transmission shop a cooler would help extend the life of the transmission does any know if this is true. I put the trans cooler in my self to save money does the cooler help make the trans last longer. I also about to change my engine oil to synthetic oil using mobil one or amsoil does anyone know if it helps make the engine last longer.

Im sorry I havent gotten back to your post...I havent been on the site in a while! You probably have decided whether or not you would buy the car, so I guess this not that helpful, but anyway...I paid 4600 for it. It is in pretty good condition, runs strong and looks great! The going rate from what I hear is about 5500 from a private party, 7900 from a dealer, but of course you can haggle. I got mine from a private party and got a nice deal because I am a poor college student .
Thanks for the info on the CD Changer. I am saving up and hopefully I can afford one by Christmas or January.
Sorry I am so late, and if you already bought the car, you will not be disappointed. Good luck!
