Default 4 vs. 6 Cylinder Camry (2005)

Hello,

I will be purchasing a 2005 Camry XLE within the next week.

I have driven both a 4-cylinder and a 6-cylinder, and found, with the test
driving that I could do, very little difference in performance; currently I
drive a 2001 Sienna.

Does anyone have any recommendations of which to get?

Thank you for your time.

Robert

If there is little difference in your mind then buy the 4 cylinder. It
will be cheaper to maintain and easier to repair if you wish to work on
it yourself. Even more important, it will cost less to purchase.
However you may consider getting the upgraded alloy wheels rather than
the smaller steel wheels. The overall handling will be slightly better
in my opinion.

If you frequently haul 3 or 4 folks in car and live in a hilly area then
definately get the V6. Otherwize the 4 is better on gas, easier to maintain
and probably a better resale way down the road.

I'd pick the six. Owning a 4 cyl, I've found times when it just doesn't
cut it. On ramps to freeways with 4 people and stuff in the trunk. Up
hills in the mountains.

Also, you'll note the resale value of a 6 is higher than that of a four.

If you can afford the additional cost, get the 6.

Blue Book even disagrees with you on that.

My 4-Cyl 05 Camry gets over 40 MPG on high way, around 35MPG over all with
20% local. I can drive close to 500 miles for each tank of gas. Very nice
given current gas price. I use my Sienna to carry heavy load.

Just curious, why would the 4 banger be better resale down the road?

It would not. The V6 costs more to buy than the 4cy models. One
of the problems in choosing a V6 Camry is pricing. To get one
you generally need to buy 'more car,' you can't just 'add a V6'
to most any model like Honda.

Unless you will be happy with a car that is slow to get going,
and keep going on long grades when fully occupied, buy the V6

Very little difference in performance? You have GOT to be kidding. There's
much more in the 6 cylinder package than just a larger motor: there's larger
wheels and tires for one example. Heavier suspension. I bought a SIX
cylinder 99 Camry--one of the best decisions in my 58 years on this planet.

Why not get the LARGER steel wheels? Why should ALLOY wheels be any better
than STEEL wheels...of the SAME size? The alloy ones are much softer and
damage easier when hitting curbs..potholes etc... I know, maybe YOU never
have that happen to you, but in the REAL world incidents occur.
