Thanks, I was curious about the older models. Too bad they changed it. Yep, I commented on those plastic seat back pockets instead of cloth earlier. I hardly put anything in mine ( A map and some thin items) for fear of ripping them lose. I guess the old ones were like my 98 Accord. I had umbrella and all kind of goodies in the cloth version. But the Camry LE driver seat is much more comfortable then the Accord. It has plenty of adjustments for me. Since I only kept the 2009 Accord for two weeks, this could be my imagination but when adjusting the seats it felt like the Camry had more front seat legroom even though they have almost exact same legroom according to web sites dimensions. Legroom is very important to (6' 1'') me. No power adjustment for passenger seat. ">
Camry has power Auto-Up/Down windows on all 4 windows. Accord is just driver and passenger. Not a big deal but convenient. I like to open the rear passenger side window just a little on days when AC is not needed, but I don't know if it the body design or not but there is an awful wind noise that is had to describe when opening that window that is very annoying.
mcdawgg- Thanks for reply about the drain holes
They did -- for the 2002-06 models. I'm not getting rid of mine soon! Two other cost-cutting measures on the '07 and later: hard plastic on the rear face of the front seat backs instead of cloth and 6-way power passenger seat on the XLE instead of 8-way (no more adjustable tilt of the seat cushion)-210delray

A 269 horsepower car? I thought the CX-7 had 244 horsepower.

This is common on a lot of cars these days. Just open one of the front windows slightly, problem solved. I can't remember, but it is something very explainable.

In physics, that resonance is called the Helmholtz effect. Some car companies call it a "helicoptering" sound. It's like blowing across the top of an empty beer bottle. The solution is to open a front window; it's most obvious when only one rear window is open.

It works great at shutting the kids up.
#663 of 1027 Voice Nav menu prompt

Does anyone know how to turn off the voice navigation menu prompt? I'm talking about the menu that comes up when you press the voice nav button where the voice says all your options? I really only use the "dial by name" feature and am wondering if there is a way to bypass the menu...

Yes it's simple. Press the voice icon on the steering wheel right away and say your next command.

Hi there. I bought a 4 cyl Camry in October. I have 2300 miles on it. I am noticing the weird shifting too. What's bothering me most is when I let the car slow down without braking the car seems to go back and forth between gears a little. The odometer will show the RPMs going down but then the RPMs go up a little then down again. This is particularly noticeable when I'm coming to a stop. The car seems to slide forward a bit just before the full stop. It's very disconcerting.
Do you think this "reset the computer" will work? I'm afraid to take it in to the dealer and say this since I don't really understand what it means. I'm also afraid that I will get the blank stare and the "that's the way it's supposed to be" response. I know a guy who works on Camrys. He seems to know them inside out. He loves the old ones - not so much the new ones (all built in the U.S. of A.)- and fixed a problem on my 92 Camry that no one else could figure out. I guess I could ask him about it.
Advice? Does anyone understand this reset the computer fix - the one that koho had done?
I love the car otherwise but I'm beginning to be obsessed by the weird shifting.

I have a Camry I bought in October with about 2200 miles now. I have noticed what you speak of here, but not quite to that extent. My car does down shift and slow down in a hurry when I take my foot off the gas pedal - almost no coasting! The shifts are however very smooth and not jerky - I notice them simply because I'm hyper vigilant about the car's behavior. I did however notice two very hard shifts - when the car was under 1000 miles, and they were both when I accelerated after decelerating. I figured that was the tranny "learning." I would also like to know what is entailed in resetting the computer. Don't know if I need one, but would like to know what it means.
