I have an 2007 Camry SE, and am about to get an extended warranty...Im deciding between a 75k or 100k mile warranty..which should I choose. I drive 25k a year, and will probably contue to drive that much the entiore life of my Camry.
What probelms, do you know that this model has, that I should wory about?

Neither. Save your money, put it in a CD, and you will more than likely come out way ahead. That is what I have always done. The 4 cylinder version of the '07 Camry's engine and most of the mechanical parts are the same as the last generation Camry, and it has been very reliable. I really would not worry with the 4 cylinder. The only real problem has been the need to reprogram the ECU (computer), and this was to eliminate the hesitation issue. The only other frequent problems have been rattles.
I have a '07 CE manual and I had the reprogram done (1/2 hour) and have zero other complaints. Most people will tell you the extended warranty is just not worth it. Just follow the maintenance guide in the owner's manual and you will be fine.

Good Morning jack20126
I am one of those people who happens to believe in an extended warranty on vehicles. Every vehicle that I have ever purchased, (either new or used), has had an extended factory warranty. Now having said that, I have either broken even with the cost of the warranty, or have made money on the deal! (Once the warranty runs out I trade the vehicle!)
When I purchase a vehicle, I purchase the "top-of-the-line" factory warranty for the maximum number of years and mileage. If I sell or trade the vehicle soon than expected, the extended warranty is a selling point in terms of the sale.
My Carmry will be one year old in January, and at that point I will probably have about 22,000 to 25,000 miles on this vehicle. When this vehicle is three years old, I will trade it for a new vehicle. Note: ---- I also believe in 2,500 mile service intervals for oil and filter changes. Just yesterday, prior to leaving for work, I pulled the oil dip stick to check the engine oil level. The oil was so clean, that I had a problem reading the oil level. ---- (Note: ---- I have never had to add oil between oil and filter changes.) ---- The vehicle is due for service on December 3rd, since I will be "on the road" prior to the Holidays!
Since I am on-the-road extensively, I have the warranty for "peace of mind". I also carry copies of all the service repair orders. Should something happen on the road, I have all my service records and my extended warranty, so there should be no problem with a Toyota dealer.
You will read many opinions about the above two issues. The final decision is yours.
Best regards. ------ Dwyane

You could find out at toyota website but BTB is over for this car. I believe BTB is 3 years or 36K miles and Powertrain is 5 years or 60K miles whichever comes first.
