2007 Toyota Camry LE V4, slow, boring, basic from North America
A boring yawn-mobile, the perfect fleet car
Nothing yet for 3 months!
I have been on a long road trip, (San Antonio to Los Angeles) so the oil was changed a few times.
I got this car from work, I did not pick it. I do not like Toyotas because they are boring in styling. Anyways, I got this car, its the base LE. I always get my cars with at least a sunroof or leather, this one had nothing. The interior trim is cheap and bland. The front seats for example are much less comfortable than a Pontiac Grand Am (my old car) or Honda Accord (my current private car). You can see that the Camry front dash is a cheap copy of the Accord. The tail lights are not sealed correctly so moisture gets in them and they get foggy. Transmission has already been recalled. I don't really care about running costs or gas mileage since the company pays for everything, but dealer service was terrible. I have been to 4 Toyota dealers in the area and none of them were ever able to change my oil because they don't have express oil service! Even on appointment, it takes days and none of them could do it because they don't take the company car credit cards!
Once I needed to get a small tube of paint because of a dent, and NONE of the 3 nearest Toyota dealers HAD IT IN STOCK, YOU NEEDED TO ORDER! 1 dealer had the paint, but was sold out. The Toyo dealers have been of no help to me and I just go to Jiffy Lube where they accept the card and do a quality job.
Now, about the car. The acceleration is very lazy and the car handles like a huge gorilla.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Must be the "V-4" slowing you down.
First, there is no such thing as a v-4.
Second, what kind of acceleration are you expecting from a 4 cylinder family car? They're built for economy. It's not a racecar.
And third, Toyota's interiors are not cheaply made by any standard at all.
