I have it & love it. It took 13 weeks to get it. I have many posts about the process on this site.

Thank you for your thoughtful posts, ilovecars1--and I hope that your research into our Camry will leave you feeling reassured that you are purchasing a very high quality and generally problem-free vehicle. We have close to a half-million people purchasing the Camry every year, and the majority has been extremely satisfied with the product; many return for repeat purchases.
As you have learned from these forum discussions, there have been a few vexing transmission "glitches" for a very small number of our 2007 customers-the most visible being the snap ring issue on the 6-spd automatic, which has been addressed and resolved. We also issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) earlier to solve a shift flare issue that would occur on a very small number of vehicles, and we also published a TSB last week to resolve a harsh downshift reported by a few customers in their 4 cyl Camrys with the 2AZ-FE engine and automatic transmission (Ref TSB TC010-06 Aug 11, 2006).
The point TMS USA is making is that we stand by the quality, dependability and reliability of our cars and trucks, and we are working hard to be even more responsive to the voices of our customers, so that when unexpected issues do arise, we can react more quickly to achieve resolution. This is what we have done for the Camry--and listening to participants within these forums and participating where appropriate has proven to be an integral part of the process of assuring high vehicle quality and a customer experience that rivals that quality.
Thanks again for your thoughts and insight.

Anyone out there seen the 2007 in Sky Blue with Bisque leather? The book says they can be ordered but the only ones I see have the ash leather.

I am hoping that my overly protective period has now passed, since my month-old Camry Hybrid was injured in a collision with a deer this morning. I hope this is the only thing that I ever need to bring it to the body shop for!
I have posted pictures of the "carnage" at greenhybrid.com if anyone is curious...

Your comments could not be more erroneous and are obviously predicated upon pure emotionalism.
The quality of the new Impala is very high and more than a match for anything Toyota makes. It has the smoothest and most trouble-free transmission in the business and its Displacement-on-Demand 5.3 liter V-8 with its 5.6 sec 0-60 acceleration time is one sweet engine.
I would take a new Impala SS any day over any configuration of Camry with its hesitating transmission, its crappy interior with the "Tokyo by night" blue lights, its exaggerated price and Toyota's increasing number of quality glitches and recalls.

I am very sorry to hear/see that. I hope it will be fixed soon.
#4318 of 5336 body side moulding?
Aug 18, 2006 (6:23 pm)
Wondering if most 2007 Camry owners, prefer their new vehicle with or without the body side moulding?...and do you think it detracts from the look of the car?

I like it without.
Would never think about adding it even if it was free!

Looks like you were pretty lucky in minimizing the damage. A new hood and bumper cover + a few minor items should do it.
I hit a deer with my '97 Camry in early 1998. The deer basically plopped on the hood, and then rolled off the right side. So my damage was similar to yours, except that evidently one hoof put a dent in the right fender.
Its head hit the windshield, but the glass survived intact.

We have an XLE (aloe green) due in in two weeks and are having the color-keyed moulding installed as well as matching mud guards. Also adding the the rear bumber protection. Insisted that the dealer not place their slogan on the car. We have a 350Z with no side moulding and, even being overly cautious, had to have a paintless dent removal wizzard do his magic.
