2006 Toyota Camry Reviews

Purchased new, now have 128k miles--runs flawless. Just keep your fluids flushed. First set of brake pads lasted almost 80k miles and that's driving from burbs to city daily. 800-900 mile trips one way is a breeze in this 4 cylinder. This is my 3rd Camry since 1989. My 1989 Camry had the same plugs (platinum) and wires until I traded @ 190k miles.

This is my wife's car. She does a lot of driving and the car has been very reliable. I think the paint job could be better, but engine and transmission have been great. In 47000 miles, we've changed brakes, oil changes and tires. Not bad!

its an alright car.....i put speedy alloy wheels on mine.....cannon muffler....cold air intake system....sport headers...tinted windows...stock spoiler( which i will change soon to a gt wing)......the only problem that i can think of atm is that the light takes a while to come on when you open a door......also the spare wheel is fucking shit on my car....i would say that its got 1mm(2 if your lucky) lol
