Bought my Camry used. Am at 150K miles love the ride and power gets good fuel economy purchased at Hertz was a rental at 69,000 miles now I have 140k miles. Wouldn't dare look elsewhere but at Toyota very spacious and stylish with LE trim model a good vehicle with best Toyota quality.
My 2008 Camry Hybrid works fine, except the sun visor broke in 2011, merely 3 year-old. :( I have searched the web and found it was a common problem. Toyota did not recognize it is a design/manufacturing flaw and refuse to recall the product. It cost about $90 to $160 to git it fixed. I tried to fix it and cost me less than and hour and less a dollar. Here is my video: http://youtu.be/yvPxParKy9w Couple years later, Toyota realized the problem but stop short to make recall. If owner complains, they will fix it for free.
..MY CAR HAS BEEN BURNING OIL BAD..I FOUND OUT IT WAS THE ENGINE..I TOOK IT TO A COUPLE OF TOYOTA DEALERS..DONE WHOULD ADDRESS THE PROBLEM SO I TOOK IT BACK TO WHERE IBROUGTH IT ..THEY DID A OIL CONSUMPTION TEST ON MY CAMRY AND FOUND IT WAS BURNING ALMOST 5 QUARTS IN LESS THAT 900 MILES..THEY CALL THE CORPORATE OFFICE AND GOT IT APPROVED TO BE FIXED..IT WAS THE PISTINS..IT WOULD HAVE COST ME 2900.00 THEY WILL FIX IT BUT YOU HAVE TO FIRST TAKE IT IN TO GET IT TESTED......ALL DEALERS ARENT GOING TO DO IT. SO YOU HAVE TO BE PERSISTENT. ALSO FOUND OUT THAT MY WATER PUMP NEED CHANGING..YOU HAVE TO DROP THE ENGINE TO CHANGE IT...SINCE THEY WERE ALREADY FIXING THE ENGINE..I GGOT A BIG BREAK ON THE REPAIR PRICE FOR THAT. I DONT WONT T O MENTION MY DEALERS NAME..MY CAR IS GETTING FIXED AS WE SPEAK. BUT THEY ARE GREAT!!!
Just changed my rear disk pads, front pads and rotors for a total of about $170 worth of parts from NAPA using premier pads. The vehicle has 128K and that was the first time the rear pads were changed. The front pads had been changed only once. I changed the front rotors not because they were worn, but I think they were warped because you would get vibration when stopping. Runs like a top again. Terry
I have a 2007 camry le and is nothing but problems, the engine burns oil since 40,000 miles, the car shakes on fwy about 65 mph, the sun visor came of by it self, the side airbag cover came off too,on a hot day the dashboard is like melting down, i own a 2005 pontiac grand prix with more miles and runs better that my camry.
My 2007 Camry is the best car I have ever owned. I have 70,000 miles on it and I do a lot of city driving. The only thing I had to replace is a bulb in the rear along with tires once and the brakes one time. I do an oil chg with synthetic oil every 5 k miles. So far it is a great car.
I bought my 2007 Camry new. I have 167,000 miles on it. To date, I have done no work on the car due to failure. I brought it to the dealer for the pedal and the window switch recall, but the car was working fine before that. I replaced the plugs at 100,000 miles because I felt like it. I have used Mobil one since I bought the car and I get 32-35 MPG. I rotate the tires every 6,000 miles and am currently on my second set of tires. The stock Michelin tires lasted me 110,000 miles. Best car I've ever owned. BTW, my Daughter has a 2005 with 150,000 and has had no work done on it either.
I bought my 2007 Camry in 2006 and when I dropped my car for oil change today at the dealer, they said my water pump and front & rear break pads need to be replaced. My car has 53k miles Toyota was going to charge over $1000 for the above, I am getting my water pump and brakes replaced at a different place. My sun visor had broken a year ago and I never got it fixed since Toyota dealer was going charge $135 for it, finally after the recall, they fixed it for free. Hopefully Toyota will soon recall their waterpump and I get my money back in reimbursement.
45,000 miles and 5 months over warranty..."your water pump is starting to leak and needs replacement: $375 parts and labor". Tell me they couldn't spot this leak 5 months ago when it was last serviced! Yup..got caught with the lousy Toyota water pump problem. And they say the replacement parts aren't any better!!! Also, dash squeaks are starting. Screws are falling out on the floorboards. Never could get the 32-36 mph up-down accelerate-slow down problem fixed. "Made computer adjustments" but we gave up. Our 4th Toyota in a row...may be our last.
I bought my new 2007 Toyota Camry in 2006 and have loved this car until today. We took it to the dealership for the 40,000 miles service and learned that...you guessed it...the water pump needs to be replaced. Of course our warranty just expired a few months ago. The dealer told us it would cost around $800 to replace. My husband knows cars and he believes this cost is way too high for a water pump replacement. Water pumps cost around $200 at the very most, so they want to charge $600 for labor? Are they nuts? This is certainly an on-going theme with the 2007 Camry. We bought a Toyota because we thought Toyota made reliable cars. Next time a Honda may be in order.
I bought my 2007 Toyota Camry new in 2006. My first and probably my last Toyota. I never had this much trouble with the Hondas that I've owned. The problems seem to never stop, and they started almost immediately after purchase. Here's what I can remember off the top of my head: reset the computer for acceleration issues, partially repainted in the first year because the paint started peeling off, replaced the intermediate drive shaft for about $500 and it didn't fix the clicking in the steering wheel, so now they want to replace the rack and pinion for $1000 ( I declined ), brake rotors, numerous mud flaps, 2 water pumps so far,rear window seal, 2 driver window seals, my wheels are also rusting under the caps, and now they want over $900 to replace two leaking struts. Oh, and I forgot the driver side sun visor won't stay in the up position and it finally broke, and just this week Toyota says they will pay to replace it.
2007 Toyota Camry - Water pump failed at 55,000 miles.Got it repaired at my Mechanic. Had no idea it was covered under drive train warranty until 60,000 miles or 6 Years. My Toyota dealer said he could not re-imburse me since I had the job done some place else. I later called Toyota headquarters and explained the situation. Toyota was very cooperative on the issue. They sent me a check for $477.00 in 4 weeks time, after I sent in my claim and invoices. 2007 Camry - Not a good year for Toyota, but I am willing to take another chance with Toyota and buy a 2012 model.
I have a 2007 Toyota Camry XLE v6. At 89K miles the water pump broke and dealer said it'll cost $1,400 to repair. He said it's about 11 hrs of maintenance as they have to remove many parts of the engine to get to it. I read about 4 cylinders being easy and cheaper to repair. Other issues I had in first few years: Recalls (leak above visor cause water to drip all over dash and the drive, gas pedal/floor mat issues, transmission issue, VVT (sp?) hose was replaced). When you press the gas pedal there has always been slight hesitation. I replaced an Oldsmobile Intrigue at 105K miles as water pump broke as did radiator. Toyota is supposed to be the reliable brand and this repair cost more than the Intrigue and almost 20K miles sooner. Goodbye Toyota (we have Highlander also) and next car will be Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, or Hundai Sonata.
Bought the car with 33,000 miles on it. It was using one quart of oil every 1000 miles. Not dripping it, so had to be burning it. Having owned a 97 Camry that had zero issues until it was totalled, I was very surprised. Took the oil-burner to local Toyota dealer. They changed the oil and said bring it back in 1000 miles, which I did. It was down exactly one quart. They replaced the short block under warranty. Now it does not use any oil. By the way, I think the 4-cylinder engine in my Camry is VERY peppy. It has a lot of low-end torque, so it gets us going with very little fuss. It won't win any drag races, but I can merge onto the freeway quite easily, and pass people with ease. I tend to drive about 6 over on the highway, so I need the passing capability. And I get good highway mileage as well. 32 with wife and luggage on my last 1600 mile trip. Still I am nonplussed by the many little squeaks and rattles in the car. I owned the 97 for 13 years and it had one little noise before it got totalled. Also, the struts feel worn out, as the car is very jouncy. But tire wear is fine. I have read another site where many, many people complain about leaking struts and the dealers say leakage is normal. That is definitely not cool. I have a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan that has been through h*ll and still has its original struts, which work great. No jounce, no noise, and tire wear is normal. A Dodge, for crying out loud. (Actually, it has been a very reliable vehicle...replaced a water pump and had to have a third-party kit installed to keep the serpentine belt from falling off when it drives through a puddle. Those were the only issues so far, after 14 years). I am going to look into this issue and consider replaceing the struts, as I would prefer a firmer ride. It freaks me out reading about bad water pumps, etc. I am getting ready to buy another car, and am now concerned about buying another Toyota. I considered it the gold standard for reliability and bang for the buck. But now, I don't know. I am thinking I might sell my Camry and buy two cars, but do not know what brand to buy. Maybe go for Kia/Hyundai. At least they have 100k warranties.
I THINK ALL YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY--BEST CAR ON THE ROAD!!
2007 Camry Hybrid with 66,000 miles. Water pump failed Toyota dealer wants $700 to replace. Wants $221 for pump you can buy on-line for $105. Non-dealer wants $490 and change parts and loabor. Sounds like this is a recurring problem, but dealer tells me there has been no recall on water pumps- you always have to believe the Toyota dealer (it's not like the service writers get any kind of bonus based on total $ of service tickets written)...
I have a 2007 Camry LE with 61,000 miles and am in the process of having the water pump replaced and was curious if this was the norm, I've not had any other problems with the car, my husband says nothing to be concerned about things break.
I have a 2007 Toyota Camry LE. I do a lot of highway driving which is why I probably don't have a lot of problems with the brakes. I did hear a noise in the engine area when starting it up cold which I thought was my alternator going bad. My astute mechanic figured out it wasn't that at all but my water pump, which I've seen from reading so many articles here, is a common problem with this model. I can also see from reading so many articles that if you don't catch this problem be prepared for all types of nightmares like overheating blown engines! I also had a problem with the steering wheel shaking which I found out was due to bad front struts. Once I changed those the car was over steering and I had to replace the rear struts which were leaking and blown!!! Once again, you have to listen to your car; it will tell you it's problems. I have 123,000 miles, change the oil every 3,000 miles because I live in Florida where it is really hot and the roads are dusty. I still like the car and the mileage I get for a 4 cylinder car. I must say the pickup and acceleration leave much to be desired but I guess that's the tradeoff for a small economical engine. Good Luck!!
I purchased my car brand new in -07 xle fully loaded and from first week of purchase my car had accelerated with me doing about 25mph and it spurting out to 40mph I took it back to dealership many many times and all they did was reset my computer(dealer said problem)then my push start gave me repeated problems,and battery kept stalling,Toyota did not want to replace battery but finally replaced push start ignition.I also had problems with my moon roof and my navigation system,and power steering, and continued acceleration problems ,and had the actual unfortunate incident of the car finally taking off on its own and all systems failed on me accelerating from 35mph to 80mph on my way to work and through the grace of God and me blowing the horn and yelling out the window for cars to get out of the way I threw the car in park scaring the Hell out of me!And this was before the recall!! Car being towed to dealership and now said tensioner rod broke off and of course Toyota did not feel responsible! It Has been a continued unresolved battle with corporate and today I have no brakes because the brake booster went out~ I now have 70,000 miles on my car and it is and always have been a piece of crap also built in KY and my first and last Toyota Ever!! signed single mom of 4~
Like i said before my 2007 camry is junk anything that this country has to do with something is Garbage the HILLBILLYS in KY have there hands in building this car now it is probably the worst car on the rode before they were built here toyota was the best car on the market just like anything else in this country they build and make garbage just worried about a paycheck and thats it the owners are the same GREED WILL DESTROY THIS COUNTRY
You folks wanna power up your Camry 2007 4 cyl LE's? original engine and tranny and it now has 199,986 miles i drive 200 + miles a day 5/week to and from work he he better believe it this is my first ever Toyota i used Nissan in the past i still own a 2001 Frontier V6(180,000+ miles)downside are the front brake rotors so i had to replace it every year at least. I placed A performance Megan racing header, downpipe, and a catback, a throtthle body spacer (2 inch) Weapon secret Short Ram intake tubes and an AMSOIL dry air filter! and to make the whole engine response like a V6? "Weapon R i- Throttle" computer module,connect it to the OBD port and the gas pedal input it has an LED that will allow you to either power up your engine or an economy power or the normal engine power that you normally use! it is plug and play and it is an amazing unit to have it in your Camry! i never had any bad issues with my Camry imagine almost 200 thousand miles and it is running like new! and faster but you have to change the oil every 4000 miles without fail i recommend the 5W20 Royal Purple oil and pull out your Throtthle body every oil change and clean it with Seafoam. Change your gas /fuel filter every 30,000 miles Tranny oil exchange every 100,000 miles, and along with it replace your spark plugs, and use the 89 or higher Fuel, keep your plumbing intact and you should enjoy your Camry like I.
I haven't had a problem with my 2007 camry le, The only thing I've done so far is just giving it an oil change every 5,ooo miles as recommended by toyota and the recall it had on the break pedal. I have 55k miles and love the car. I ran into this website because I'm looking for info on when I should change my transmission fluid?
I have over 100,000 miles, Never a problem. Put snow tires on and developed a fishtail swerve , found out tires wore uneavenly but worse the bushings are wearing and the arm is loosening. So will need replacing.
We are getting 23MPG in town driving and just completed a 400-mile road trip over the Cascade Mountains and back home with the trunk loaded and received 30.5 MPG. The cars handling is very precise, the engine has amazing power for a four cylinder and the transmission is very smooth. The trunk is very large and works great for long trips. I also own an 88 Toyota pickup that has over 121,000 one it and have never had a mechanical problem. It was at 100,000 miles that I finally put new brakes on the truck and 7 years on the fist battery. My wife and I would highly recommend Toyota Camry as a plush car to drive with high reliability.
2007 xle.At 15000 mi. engine control mod.went out,3 recalls for something,2 of them for other then the gas peddle prob; At 60,000 radio, ox.sensor, ingnit. coil, went bad and the protection cover over the exhaust pipe where the sensor is at just fell off,all this at the same time, odd ??? it was just into the dealer for oil change and a sensor for $325. just one day before.
This car is a total piece of crap. Nothing but problems!! The steering vibrates at 45-75 MPH, even on the smoothest of roads. I've taken it in many times, they've balanced, "road balanced" (using a special machine - $60!), and tried everything, but the vibrations persist. Now, I feel a clicking in the wheel and thought it might have been something dangerous. I took it in to have it looked at, and it turns out that it is the intermediate steering shaft. The dealer stated that it is not a safety concern, just an annoyance. $500 quote to fix. At 50k miles? They couldn't tell me how this happened, and that it was just wear. 50k miles?? Really? The car is driven carefully and has not been abused. If I spend this much now, will I be forced to spend another $500 when it hits 100k?? Sounds like yet another poor design from Toyota. Never again will I purchase anything from Toyota! My '06 Honda Civic has NO problems and drives better.
I HAVE A RARE 5 SPEED MANUAL 07 SE(BOUGHT NEW IN 06, NOT A CONVERSION). THE CAR IS VERY FUN TO DRIVE, AND HAS MANY UPGRADES AVAILABLE. LOWERED THE SUSPENSION 2 INCHES AND NOW I CAN TAKE CURVES DOING A 90+. ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT AFTER 90'000 MILES, MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS COMES ON WHEN THE FUEL GETS LOW SOMETIME, AND ALSO HAD TO REPLACE A SPRING ON THE CLUTCH PEDAL. OTHER THAN THAT I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE CAR BUT WISH IT CAME WITH "ONLY" A V6 AND 6SPD
I too am having problems with needing the water pump replaced at 69,000 miles. How can this be? Believe me, I drive this car like I'm carrying nitroglycerin! This shouldn't be happening! This will be my last Toyota...
My water pump just went out with no warning. It caused the engine to blow in a matter of 2-3 minutes. Now, Toyota doesn't want to cover it. It only has 46,312 miles on it. Any advice? Has anyone had similar problems with their 2007 Toyota Camry?
I've owned 3 toyota vehicles and have noticed the decrease in quality over the years. I now own a 2007 Toyota Camry and have replaced the catalytic converter and alternator all in the same year. I don't recall ever having to replace a catalytic converter in any of my cars, new or used. Can someone please enlighten me on what causes this EXPENSIVE part of the engine to fail...
