5th & 6th Generation (2002-2006 & 2007-2011)Toyota Camry Discussion for years: 2002-2006 & 2007-2011
Topics of discussion range from fuel economy, safety, modifications, performance all involving America's favorite family car, the Toyota Camry.
2006 LE I4. 165000. ONLY part failed was starter @ 160,000! I was mad at first, but, Hey one failure which cost $220. That's the entire repairs list! No clunking intermediate steering shaft. BEST car I ever owned.
Replaced serpentine belt and plugs @110000. Plug gap only increased around 2 thousanths in all those miles. Coolant serviced. Brakes @ 150000 front only. Won't ever need rears...
Don't skip plug change @120000 miles. $16 if you are a diy er. Bad plug will give random misfire and trigger light, and can DAMAGE your expensive catalytic converters! Also don't skip coolant service--you will have freeze protection anyway but not anticorrosion protection for your expensive radiator.
Oil consumption @160,000--1/2 qt in 5000 miles. Did I say best car I ever owned? Twice?
My 2007 V6 SE now has 95.700 miles. I am the original owner and hope to get a lot more miles out of this car since it has been maintained very well. We have looked at other cars but so far none seem to have this desirable combination of reliability,handling, comfort, speed, looks and utility for under $27.000.
