2007 Toyota Camry SE 3.5 V6 from North America


Not the normal good quality I expect from Toyota


There have been non stop problems with the transmission, and the suspension and now the driver's window are not working.

General Comments:

This car would be a great car if Toyota put the normal work in fit in finish that they have grown their company on. It has a great feel to the steering wheel and great options, but the transmission needs to be re-tooled.

2007 Toyota Camry LE 2.4 from North America


I think it was Volkswagen that really made this car, and sold it Toyota and renamed it the Camry


Muffler replaced at 5,000 miles because I was driving too fast over a bump, and because this car is so low to the ground, the muffler hit the bottom and was destroyed.

Tire size is way too big for the car.

Cheap plastic from top to bottom.

Brakes are starting to wear at only 17,000 miles.

Suspension is always squeaky, and the dealer can never find out the cause of that. They are right now deciding if they should replace the whole suspension under warranty.

General Comments:

What has gone wrong with Toyota with the styling? My wife had another Toyota a long time ago, and that was a good car, but this one is the worst car I ever had since I first drove in 1949 (I'm 78 years old and I'm not afraid to say). This car reminds me more of a Volkswagen than a Toyota. Everybody including my wife says Toyotas are very reliable, but my last Minivan was way more reliable. My wife talked me into getting this car because of its reliability, which is false, and also because of the high gas prices we had in the past, and it does get good gas mileage, which is the only thing I like about the car.

We did need another car to replace our high mileage and gas sucking Ford Windstar, which gave us no major problems until it reached 180,000 miles. Time is money for me, and I'm not saving with this car being at the dealer half the time. If these problems don't get resolved, I'm going to file for buyout under lemon law.

Don't be so quick to blame yourself for driving too fast over a bump and taking out your muffler. Look underneath some other Camries. In between the engine and muffler there is an exhaust pipe that has a bend designed into it. On about half the Camries you look under, you will see the pipe has twisted so the bend only gives the car about 3 inches of ground clearance. When the car was brand new the ground clearance was about 5 inches like most other cars. Since you had already noticed limited ground clearance, I bet your exhaust pipe had twisted down and you were hearing scraping noises over bumps.

This is a design flaw in the Camry exhaust system. Since becoming aware of this I have been looking under other cars and pretty much the Camry is the only car with this problem, although sometimes I see it on a Lexus too. I am surprised more people don't complain about it. I guess most Camry drivers just get used to driving super slow over speed bumps to avoid scraping and they just aren't aware that the Camry is unusual in this regard.

Funny, my mother has a 2007 Camry and she is normally famous for scraping the bottoms of her cars on things, but she has yet to destroy her exhaust system or have squeaky suspension. Don't drive the car like an SUV/minivan and you might not have these problems.

Where is the Toyota quality?

Toyota is really overrated to my point of view!

Are you aware that Toyota has never send me any car survey since I have the car for 18 months!

Are you aware that my Toyota Dealer does not indicate all the troubles on the work sheet is it to get better initial quality survey?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Toyota. You should have read the reviews on this site before buying one of the worst rated cars on the site. I can only suggest that you try to unload this lemon before it bankrupts you. Virtually ALL automotive sources are currently bemoaning Toyota's precipitous drop in quality. With the news of worsening reliability you'll find your resale dropping like a rock. I'd unload it as quickly as possible for as low a loss as possible and look into something solid and reliable, such as the Ford Fusion or Chevy Malibu.

Another option would be a used 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix. They were discontinued in 2008, but were top-rated in their market segment (which included the Toyota Avalon) by J.D. Powers. You can get a GM certified used one at an incredible price with a 5-year warranty.
