#72 of 81 was i cheated by the dealer
Apr 16, 2007 (12:16 pm)
I recently bought a toyota camry LE. and when i bought the car, the price included the price of the auto-dimming mirror and a remote start.
I just got my car back with one of the accessories, the remote start installed today. Thats when I noticed the part installed wasn't the original toyota accessory and was a cheap third party spare, but when the sale was made it was based on the toyota accessory list prices. I dont know if i was cheated or this the norm.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance,

#74 of 81 4-cyl. 2007 Camry-7 month review
Apr 26, 2007 (9:25 am)
I barely have 3000 miles on my CAMRY after 7 months.
The only issue is that it seems sometimes the car pulls left. Not sure if it's the car or the uneven,clunky streets in the Chicago suburbs. (Don't notice it on my 2000 Taurus or 2004 Sebring,though.) Brought car in to service for oil change. Mechanic test drove it without me & with me,no issues found. I love the styling and the ride is very comfortable. But after 7 years,it is still amazing to me that the 2000 Taurus has the more advanced digital controls & the convenience of the keypad door lock that my other cars do not! I'm surprised other companies have not come up with their own keypad entrys.

The Ford keypad is a nice feature -- I always liked it on our former company Crown Vic.
But with remote controls and now Smart Keys, I don't think anyone else is going to use the keypads.
#76 of 81 2003 Camry XLE V6 not perfect
Apr 29, 2007 (3:43 am)
The drive belts were replaced at around 43K (dealer suggestion during oil change). The next week it was the right CV joint half axle. I had an OEM part put in and saved 40% over dealer cost. The steering wheel had a squeak in it right from the beginning that took several trips to fix with lubrication. So far I'm a little disappointed. This is my first Toyota.

Historically, your 2003 Camry car will last a long, long time without major repairs (i.e. transmission, head gaskets, etc.). Those cars go 200-300k miles no sweat.
Bad CV joint at 43K is a premature failure, Toyota should have repaired it for free as a goodwill gesture. Did you try calling Toyota about it?

Our '07 4cyl LE has 3500 miles on it
Purchased Feb. '07.
Last tankfull = 32mpg all highway.
A well built car that has exceeded our expectations!

I've had my 2007 Camry LE I-4 AT since Nov. 2006 and it just turned 15K miles with no problems what so ever. It has sufficient power and gets about 30 mpg in suburban traffic.
The only suggestion I would make is that if you have to travel rough pot-holed roads, you'd be advised to look elsewhere. My daughter's GM SUV takes those roads far more smoothly than the Camry.

I feel a little jerk when the automatic transmission changes from 1st gear to 2nd gear. I don't accelerate much and slowly increase the speed from 0 to 45 or 50 when starting from the stop light. also i feel the transmission is not very smooth and when i contacted the dealer they said that for 1st 1000 miles it is going to be like that and it will be really smooth after that. the car's computer is trying to learn the habits and its variable valve timing is adjusting.
Please let me know if this is correct and whether this is something to be taken care of. also could anyone tell me what all things should be taken care of during the initial stages of the car for a long term benefit.

The forum title says Camry Owner Reports.
Our 04 Camry LE with the 2.4 litre 4 cylinder and 4 speed automatic has been flawless for 74,000 miles. I'ts never been back to the dealer for anything.
It is smooth, quiet, and efficient. I would buy another in a heartbeat, but at the moment, there is no reason to replace it.
