2005 Toyota Camry Reviews

I have a 3.3L 05 Camry SE. Love it, drives so smooth compared to the newer camry. The water pump leaking seems to be a recurring problem from this message board and what my car has.

I am the only owner .I bought it new in Rome,GA.@Riverside Toyota Dealer The radio plays but it rejects the C.D.disk.Where is the cheeps place that I can have it repaired?

2005 Camary bought new. Serviced regualarly @5000 miles with synthetic oil.Replaced plugs, brakes @ 100,000. Just had to replace right wheel bearing at 127,000.Steering has a popping noise. Dealer said Mfg sent out a notice on repair but safety was not an issue. Replaced tires at 63,000 due to road noise. just put a new set of Michlin Harmonys on. Great car for dependability. Will buy a Avalon next, much better ride and very little road noise.

Bought 2005 Camry 4 cyl used with 15000 mi in 05 now has 90000 havent had a problem until i took it in for 90k checkup and found out it had leaking water pump and 4 broken motor mounts. Yes i said 4 which the Toyota service center quoted me $1400 to replace. I have been very diligent over the years changing oil, rotating tires, replacing brakes and getting the front end aligned . I feel the motor mount problem is strictly a Toyota design flaw or a manufacturing defect which i shouldn't be made to pay for their mistakes!, Been driving for 46 yr never had this problem!!!

Other then new tires, brakes, battery and oil changes every 5,000 miles when the light goes on, I have had no major problems with this car. Bought brand new August, 2005 and have almost 62,000 miles on it. Just sold my 1987 Camry with 210,000 miles on it and still running strong. I have had good luck with these cars.
