2006 Toyota Camry Problems

Power Steering Leak From Pump and/or Hose

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

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!
