I've had a '96 Accord, '03 Accord, '07 Civic, '05 4cyl LE Camry, '05 6cyl XLE Camry, '05 4cyl XLE Camry cloth seats. 05 4cyl has a timing chain which does not need to be changed. 05 6cyl has a timing belt which does obviously need a change and it an expensive job. Do your homework as far as how many owners, former smoker car,accidents,fooding etc... With that done the 05'06 Camrys are amazing basic transportation vehicles. No car is everything. However, even the 4cyl '05 Camry has PLENTY of punch when needed. It is a pleasure to drive in the most basic way. Probably not for mega driving enthusiasts. However, if you don't like headaches and are often in your "second home" (lol) the 2005 Camry can and has been great for me!
All Camrys in my opinion are incredibly reliable cars. I had a 2002 before getting the 2011 and I would've stayed in my 2002 much longer had I not been in an accident. The only complaint I have about the 2011 is that the sun visor on the drivers side broke about a month after I bought it. Apparently this is a problem on all 2007-2011 Camrys.
i have owned 03, 07, 11, 14.5 camry s. i buy them new and trade them in when they hit 90k miles. i'm need to get a new one but the 2017 is so plain. looks like an oversized corolla. love the camry's , only oil changes, tires and batteries . occasionally brakes. these cars can go and go without major issues and they hold up their value. my 2003 had 213k miles and they still gave me $3500 on the trade in. if only toyota would restyle the camry, i would trade it in now. might have to hold out for the 2018 and hope for a better design.
