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.

well i was in the same situation Accord or Camry and i decided on the Camry at the end because Accord has a new design next year so if u want accord i recommend waiting for a few months for the new design its pretti cool u can find pictures of it in inside lane in edmunds.com
well the transmission problem i would like to say don't exist but it does... but its not really that noticeable... but if u hav a choice of G35 i would get that i wanted the G35 but didn't hav the budget

Have you contacted Toyota or gone to a different Toyota dealer for the warranty work?

Do you think the new accord model won't have any "issues" like the Camry? Like most first model year cars, it will......some people won't have any and some people will.
The G35 has been getting a lot of complaints and there are a bunch of TSB's out for it right now.

Traditionally, first year models from both Toyota and Honda have been relatively trouble free, but it seems Toyota at least is running into some problems. So it could be a gamble on the Accord.
Still, even on the '07 Camry, my sense is that the V6 transmission has had more problems than the 4-cylinder, especially when you consider something like 75-80% of all Camrys sold have the 4-cylinder. My dime: I'd buy the 4-cylinder but wait on the V6.

The early production models are the ones plagued by this problem. This car has been out for 15, 16 months? And still selling like hot cakes. I would not hesitate (no pun intended ) to buy either the 4 cylinder or V6.

Its comman for any car to have a bunch of TSB's out for it- most of the time the TSB's seam to fix the problem though. From what I have read, whether or not the TSB's for the Camry's transmission fixes the problem is rather hit or miss though.

Glad your back! Long time no see!
I really enjoyed reading your stories back in the now-closed "Inconsiderate Buyers" thread.
