My first Toyota Camry 2005 XLE V6 , almost 2 years since I purchased it, low mileage mint. Door panel says 215/60/r16 , need to replace tires soon. previous owner had put on Triple Tred 225/55 R16 , what difference does it make.
Should I go with original size 215/60/R16 for best performance.

thanks you guys are great

Hi Forum - new user and looking for a little insight, not the Honda kind. I'm thinking of purchasing a 2006 Camry Solara SE w/3.3 V6, not convertible (sunroof) and all the options. Only 68k miles but, as I am a stranger to Toyota's is there anything to be aware of when I look at it this coming Saturday. It seems well kept and I'm pretty good at judging used cars in general but did that particular year/engine combo have anything that might be a "concern". Getting it for the wife to run about town and I'm fairly convinced we'll buy it and any insight (heh) you can give would be greatly appreciated.

PS, not looking for the overall thoughts about maintenance and the usual issues to look for on a used car, really looking for more specific info on this model/year.

Thanks in advance,
Duke

I just recently just got back into a Toyota. I was doing some searches and this site came up on some questions I had last week. I ended up joining since now that I have a toyota, I might as well get as much info as I can. I just got a 2010 Toyota Camry which took quite some time to find because I fully hate automatics. It's ironic Toyota makes automatics, but export manuals to other countries (smh). Well, I am happy to be back to Toyota after a stint with Honda.

New owner Checking in

Hello Everyone,

Got my 05 1AZ camry just 3 days ago. Car is in a superb condition, probably the only thing that i didnt like is the fact that the previous owner was not consistent with the type of engine oil used. I plan to stick with whats recommend on the manual - 5w/10w30, Liqui Moly Molyglen or MOS2 plus Ceratec. Cars done 100000km so even full synth may be allright. But previous oil used for the engine makes me think that may not be a good idea.

It shows (service record) mineral in the beginning, then some semi, then full then back to semi. Gear oil is all right. Nevertheless all fluids have to go, and i intend to do that. Plus, BF, PSF, Coolant. Steering feels a bit heavy, maybe thats normal?

Odometer brightness is insufficient (for me at least) at night, maybe a bulb needs replacement.

Two Michelin tyres has minor wall cracks so maybe will go soon (215 r16 60)

Steering leather is beginning to wear, will leather polish/treatment work? Or use a steering cover? (ughh!)

Thats my initial thoughts atm, must inspect further (and drive) to find out more

Love this car

Cheers Everyone
M

My car speaks

Hey guys. New member here; although, I have had my 2005 white Camry for two years. I was a Honda guy, but I got a great deal on this Camry. It had under 100k when I got it, and I have loved this car enough to put 30k on it. The only thing I don't like is that it is an automatic, but I can live with the automatic. Hopefully it will last for a long time.
