2005 Toyota Camry

Buyer's Guide

The Toyota Camry undergoes several changes for 2005. All models receive a revised grille, new headlamps and taillights, and a new front bumper, along with ABS, a new front console cover, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a rear centre head restraint and Optitron electronic gauges. A five-speed automatic transmission formerly available only on the six-cylinder engines is now standard on the four-cylinder LE and optional on the SE, the only model available with a manual.

There are three engines: a 2.4-litre four-cylinder on the LE and SE, a 3.0-litre V6 on the LE-V6 and XLE-V6, and a 3.3-litre V6 on the SE-V6. All come with variable valve timing and are rated as Ultra Low Emissions Vehicles (ULEV).

The base LE includes 15-inch steel wheels, ABS, CD player with six speakers, air conditioning, 60/40 folding rear seat, power locks with keyless entry, power windows, cruise control, cargo net, heated power mirrors and variable intermittent wipers. The LE-V6 offers the same features plus front and rear splash guards, and 15-inch alloy wheels.

The XLE-V6 adds a six-CD changer, automatic climate control, power adjustable driver’s seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, woodgrain trim, rear sunshade, side and curtain airbags, power sunroof, 16-inch wheels and fog lamps.

The SE package includes all of the LE features, plus a leather-wrapped three-spoke wheel, aluminum instrument panel accents, and 16-inch wheels. The SEV-6 adds the six-disc CD, leather interior, heated seats, and 17-inch wheels.

The Camry remains possibly the best all-around family vehicle on the market: it’s not exciting, but it’s comfortable, it’s extremely well-built, there’s plenty of rear-seat room, it handles very well, and it’s just an all-around competent machine. It’s vanilla, but it’s very good-quality vanilla. It’s got a smoother ride than Honda Accord and a nicer interior than the Nissan Altima, although those models edge it slightly in the horsepower race.

The Camry is built in Georgetown, Kentucky.

Best Car Ever Owned
Other than routine maintenance, this car has been trouble free. Only non-routine was recharging the AC. Keeping it longer than originally planned because of this.

Great for long distance
We used this car to travel to Florida every year for five years, and we did so very comfortably, and with ample of room to put our luggage and "stuff" for the winter. It's an efficient car, and it's good on the road. We have been very happy with our purchase.
