2007 Toyota Camry SE 4 from North America


It is a shame, the company has gone downhill fast


Needs a new engine.

My first Toyota went for 396.000 miles.

I take great care of my car and change oil every 4000 miles.

I think Toyota is going to have a problem with engine sludge. This car; I was adding a quart of oil every 2000 miles, and now I know the oil consumption was a problem.

My Toyota dealer does not see this as a problem.

General Comments:

If the engine does not last, nothing else matters.

Buyer beware. Toyota is not what it use to be.

2007 Toyota Camry LE 3.5L V6 from North America


Skip 2007 models, if you are looking to buy used, other years might be more refined


Bought the car used (first car), the problem after driving it for a while - acceleration hiccups/hesitation when trying to overtake somebody. The car does not accelerate when you press the gas pedal for a second or so (or maybe even slows down a little, like when you take foot off the gas pedal), and then jerks and goes Warp 9, as if I had nitro-boost on it. Happens RANDOMLY during pretty much all of the speed ranges - saw it anywhere between 20km/h and 120km/h. Again, happens only when you need to overtake somebody or accelerate fast in very short period of time; It drives OK when you're driving calmly like you are not in a hurry. Perhaps it's that drive-by-wire thing.

Also, after about a week, check engine light came on (P0606 - "powertrain control module (PCM) detects an internal microprocessor integrity fault"), which disappeared when I got to the dealership and tried to restart the car to see if that will make the "check engine" light disappear, before I sign up for service/repair/diagnostic - it vanished, so I did not go for servicing.

LOTS of paint chips on the hood from the previous owner. Hope it won't rust any time soon. Dealer painted over the holes, and there are no visible rust marks on the car yet.

General Comments:

The V6 has enough juice to haul an elephant! Lots of power. About 500lb of tools in the trunk and 4 people in the cabin, and it drives like it's empty! By the way, I get acceleration hesitation just as much whether the car is loaded or empty.

Comfy driver's seat, but some passengers complained that seats are not soft enough.

Fold down back seats are a plus if you have to carry long objects.

Tiptronic transmission will be useful during winter months here in Canada.

Good fuel consumption for V6 (mostly highway driving)... so far I'm getting about 650km to 700km from "low fuel" light to "low fuel" light.

"The car does not accelerate when you press the gas pedal for a second or so"

I guess you haven't been reading the news or watching TV for the past year. Toyotas only accelerate when you don't press on the accelerator!

2007 Toyota Camry CE 4 cylinder from North America


Beware of this car


The gas mileage is disappointing. This 4 Cyl. car gets about 20 miles per gallon.

The transmission is flawed. When I start out in forward or in reverse, the engine hesitates.

Plastic pieces from the door handle and other parts inside have fallen off.

General Comments:

I asked the dealer about the mileage and I was told it would improve with age. The dealer admitted that Toyota had increased the car's size and weight, which is why the mileage is so poor. The gas mileage has not improved.

The dealer also admitted that the transmission has a problem, which could not fixed.

This is the fourth Toyota that I purchased. It will be my last Toyota.
