I can't wait to get the new body styled Camry I think it looks sharp! BUT UNTIL MY 1997 Camry clonks out completely and I mean completely I won't purchase. I LOVE MY CAMRY. It's 4cy,I keep the inside as well as the outside clean. I've got a whopping 244,542 miles. NO MISPRINT.
I've even considered trying to get a job within the Toyota organization. No major repairs at all. I keep waiting at least for my muffler to fall of but until then I won't look for nothing to go wrong. Just my minor up-keeps.

I'm looking to buy a new camry, but I'm not in a super big hurry. Anyone thinking waiting for the 2008 models should help to avoid some of these transmission issues and dash squeaking?

Please share the new TSB if you have it
#16 of 69 Will you buy a Camry 07 or an Accord 07

I need to purchase a new car I like the camry a lot but I am concern about the transmission problems on the Camry V6 so I am looking at the Honda Accord. Current camry users how do you feel about your camry 07 V6 will you purchase another one. Any one with a Honda Accord experience.
I have never own a Honda before
#18 of 69 I would wait

I can say I'm one who has been dealing with the Camry V-6 issues for 1 year. Dash noises, seat vibration rpm flares, gas tank noise , hard downshifts and the list goes on.
I would'nt buy the Camry

Thank you Chuck, I am so undecided so your comments enforce my fears about the camry.

It should be noted that a completely redesigned Honda Accord for 2008 will be introduced this September, so you might want to check this out.
I've been perfectly happy with my '04 and '05 Camry 4-cylinders (drivetrain in the '05 model is essentially the same as that in the 4-cylinder '07 model).
#21 of 69 07 Camry Transmission Fixed Yet?
Jul 16, 2007 (8:40 pm)
I am currently in the market for a new sedan and am seriously considering a V6 XLE. However, I have read numerous posts spread around the internet discussing transmission flare problems with the 07 Camry's. I really like the Camry, but am nervous about buying with the potential of transmission problems. It seems like most of the problems are with the V4, but the V6 also has the potential for issues. Most of the posts I have read deal with very early production numbers of the 07 model (produced post 2007 calender year). Has anyone had any experience with a recently produced V6 having these "flare" issues? (like post April 2007 or so)... I am wondering if Toyota has had ample time to remedy the bugs or if it is still on going.
I plan on keeping this car for 6-8 years, so this will be a major purchase for me. At this point, it is probably between an entry level Infinity G35 and a loaded Camry. If I get the G35, I won't be able to afford as many bells and whistles as if I get the Camry. Long story short, the Camry is better in my price range, but I don't want to get into something that is going to cause me problems. Thanks for any imput and advice.

I am in the same boat as you, I read some users comments and I made my mind about not getting the Camry then an hour later I change my mind again.
I am between the Honda Accord and the Camry but with all the comments about the camry I am leaning for the Accord. I have never own an Honda I have been always a Toyota (Corolla, Camry, RAV4 and a 4Runner) so it is difficult to understand all this issues when my experience with my previous cars has been excellent.
