Gone up Snoqualmie Pass (2,700' climb) and Siskiyou Pass (2,300' climb @6%) a number of times with 2 persons, luggage and golf equipment at the speed limit with no problems. It will downshift to 3rd gear at the steepest climbs.Hey all,
I just purchased a 4 cylinder '07 Camry SE. I have to say that it doesn't have much get up and go but that's not why I purchased it. Anyhow, does anybody have any experience with mountain driving with their 4 cylinder? I may be moving to Colorado soon and will be wanting to go in to the mountains to snowboard and what not. I usually went to Winter Park when I lived there before and there are some pretty steep roads getting there. If anybody has any experience please let me know how it handles.
Winter Park is about a 3700' climb as I remember but I don't think the grade was that steep.
In the winter with the snow and ice you won't be running speed limit probably.
