#62 of 81 Highway MPG results
Dec 26, 2006 (6:03 am)
Just returned from my first extended highway driving trip of about 400 miles with my 2007 CE MT Camry and the mileage was spectacular. I cruised around 72-74 MPH most of the time on mainly flat surfaces so the MPG potential was optimum.
Anyway, filling up at the end of the trip returned an amazing 34.5 MPG. Wow!
#64 of 81 Camry 07 V6 SE Questions:
Oct 26, 2006 (9:34 am)
I would appreciated if you could answer some these questions regarding Camry 07 V6 SE
1) Should I be using gasoline rating of OCT 87 or higher? I have a mix message from Toyota Canada and dealers.
2) I have clucking noise (like a bad shock) from the rear wheel in the puddles? Is this expected since it is a SE version?
3) Should I perform an Oil change after break in period of 1600 klm? I have a mix message from Toyota Canada and dealers.

Hi Fellow Canuck;
To answer your questions:
1. 87 Octane is alright but you will gain a few HP by using 91 Octane. I run 91 Octane.
2. Have the dealer check out the cluncking sound.
3. Wait until what the manual says. I think it is 7500KM or 6 months, which ever comes first. I have yet to change the oil in my SE and I have about 5300KM and I have had it since mid-May. I will change to Synthetic at that time.
Hope this helps

Did you have ant problem setting your Home Link (garage door openr)?
I first tried the method for Canadian users and then the other two. None worked. I know we have the rolling code door openers, so I tried that method again but instead of pressing the button twice at the end I pressed it 3 times and it worked (like Hondas).
However, It reset the door opener and I had to reprogram all my other remotes again.
Ps. Can you customize the message on the stereo (Welcome to Camry)?

Yes, I had all kinds of problems with it. First, as you said, setting it and it only works when the car is right in front of the garage door. MY Infiniti G35 has Home Link and I can open the door about a 100 feet before I turn into the driveway. I have to have the dealer check that out.
I never tried to change the messages on the radio but I will look into it.
If you have any other questions, let me know. I am taking it in for the first check up in about 2 weeks and I have a list of things that they have to fix including re-aligning the trunk lid. This American assembly line is a bunch of crap. I had a 2003 Corolla that I traded in on this one and it was made in Canada and the "graps" were as tight as my Infiniti.
Toyota is trying to be the new GM!

My 2007 Camry XLE V-6 has had a few minor problems. I cannot do the oil change re-set as is stated in the Camry manual. I followed the book and did exactly what it says and no luck. A friend even tried doing it and still could not get it to reset. I changed my oil after 3,000 miles but didn't reset it at that time, maybe that was the problem. I honestly never had to be told by a car when to change it's oil so it never occurred to me to do have to do a reset and my 2002 Nissan Maxima SE didn't have this built into it's computer. Guess I should have read the Camry manual all the way through. Anyways, after I saw the light on the dash go on that says "Maintenance Required" (this is to let you know you'll need an oil change soon) I read how to do it and it would not work. Anyone else experiencing this problem? There is also some hesitation and shifting problems as well. I hate the seatbelt alarm it goes on way too long and I don't like having my doors lock after 30 seconds. Also, my sideview mirror adjustment buttons on the lower left botton side of the driver's side dash don't work very well. Other than that it's a pretty decent car, not great though. I doubt I'll be buying another Toyota in the future.

My Camry is six (6) weeks old, and I have 3,800 + miles on the vehicle. (Yes I drive alot!). I purchased this vehicle over a Chevrolet Impala, a Buick, a Honda Accord and a Ford 500. My major concern was comfort. The Camry is great to drive, very powerful and comfortable. I DO NOT have any of the problems that I see posted on these boards, but that does not mean that they do not exist, or that these problems will not surface at a high mileage! Would I purchase this vehicle again? ----- Based on its current performance, ---YES!----- But, if I start to have the transmission issue, that has been described on these boards, my answer would change to "NO"!
I enjoy driving this vehicle every day. The seats are VERY comfortable, and the V6 engine is VERY powerful. The vehicle has had it first oil and filter change. (I make it a point to have the oil and filter changed every 2,500 miles. It is just a personal choice on my part. Toyota has had a sludge problem in the past.) The selling dealer does all the service, so all my records are in one location, should a warranty issue surface. The vehicle is also covered by a 6 year / 100,000 miles extended Toyota warranty.
Do I like the Toyota Camry? ----- YES.----- Am I presently happy with the product? ---- YES.---- Would I purchase the vehicle again, knowing what I now know about the possible transmission issue on some vehicles? -----I don't know! ---Probably NO!
Best regards. ----- Dwayne

Thanks for your informative report. Can you tell us why you picked this vehicle over the Accord?

I had a 2003 4 cylinder automatic Accord with leather. The seats were VERY uncomfortable! After driving for two hours, my upper back and my bottom ached! I lived at the Chiropractor, and I thought that I was just getting old! ---- Now that I have the Camry for the past six weeks, I have not had a need for a Chiropractic adjustment! Something is different with the seats in the Camry. My back is supported much better than with the Accord seats.
On the other side of the issue, I loved the quality of the Accord, and I had a GREAT dealer, and the service was excellent. As a result of this positive experience, I did not want to purchase another name plate, but I needed a more comfortable vehicle.
Best regards. ----- Dwayne
