A Comfortable, Affordable, Drive

This car is very comfortable; there's leg room and comfy seating for four of the seats, and the AC works fairly quickly and thoroughly. Long trips with five people can get very uncomfortable for the person in the middle in the back, though, due to how cramped it is. The raised floor exacerbates the problem. Another thing to be aware of is how it handles turning. It cannot make narrow turns; you need a lot of clearance compared to other cars. It can't make u-turns in narrower roads; you'll have to do a three-pointer. And when parking, you have to start further away.

I really like my 2004 Toyota Camry it rise very well the control of the car is very good it is a very good vehicle. I love this vehicle because it can fit all for my children it is good on the expressway I can fit all of my groceries in the car when it has a oil change and rides beautifully. This is a really good family car it is a good car that can take a lot of miles you can have this car for a long time and there is not a lot of things that will go wrong with the car as long as you keep it maintenance.

Twenty miles/gallon and with gas prices at over 3$/gallon it goes pretty far.

My Camry was bought used with 145, 000 miles on it. There are very few issues with the car, with good gas mileage and fast working heater. There is also a very large trunk space. An issue I have is the headlights are very dim. They hardly light up the road in front of me which makes driving at night dangerous. I can turn the brights on, but that is inconvenient to other drivers. Another small issue is the dash lights. When I need an oil change the light reads "maintenance required" which is misleading.

Seat Belts > Front > Buckle Assembly Dec 13, 2004
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 13, 2004
NHTSA Campaign:
04V595000
Summary:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A FRONT PASSENGER POWER SEAT, WHEN INSTALLING CERTAIN REAR-FACING INFANT CHILD SEAT BASES ONTO THE SEAT WITH AN EXCESSIVELY HIGH SEATBELT TENSION, IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO UNSEAT A COMPONENT CALLED THE BUCKLE STATUS SWITCH FROM THE SEAT BELT BUCKLE.
Consequence:
IF THE SWITCH BECOMES UNSEATED, THE FRONT PASSENGER OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM MAY MISTAKE THE REAR-FACING CHILD RESTRAINT FOR AN UNBELTED ADULT OCCUPANT, AND MAY NOT SUPPRESS THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT PASSENGER SEATBELT BUCKLE STATUS SWITCH. THIS SAFETY IMPROVEMENT CAMPAIGN (SSC 40M) BEGAN ON DECEMBER 20, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

NHTSA Campaign:
04V346000
Summary:
ON CERTAIN VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH CURTAIN SHIELD AIR BAGS (CSA), ONE OR BOTH OF THE CURTAIN AIR BAGS MAY BE TWISTED NEAR THE INFLATOR DUE TO IMPROPER ASSEMBLY.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE CSAS AND REPLACE THE AIR BAG ASSEMBLY IF NECESSARY. THE RECALL BEGAN ON AUGUST 6, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.
