    Camry 05 Vs. Accord 05

    Which one is better ... Camry 05 or Accord 05. They both look pretty much the same. Is there any major difference.

    my choice is the camry....since the accord has the biggest be-hind ive ever seen on a car. its so ugly, but thats my opinion. also:

    -Camry SE is about 5k USD cheaper than Accord EX (both 4cyl)
    -Camry SE has 2more lb torque than Accord EX

    or

    -Camry SE V6 is about 3k USD cheaper than Accord EX V6
    -Camry has 225hp and 240lb torque while Accord has 240hp and 212lb torque.

    all depends, but ya the Accord has optional navigation while Camry does not.

    No way. The 2005 Camry interior is way nicer than the Accord..fancier maybe, nicer, no. Also when you sit in an Accord you feel it's smaller than the Camry..

    The Camry definitly have it.

    anyways.. IMO the difference between the 2 are

    -the Camry SE trim have a sportier suspension than the Accord.
    -Larger usable trunk in the Camry
    -I4 engines: i-Vtec in the Accord vs VVTi in the Camry... (I'd prefer i-Vtec but then it didnt feel any powerful than the VVTi in the Camry..)
    -MUCH more responsive V6 engine on the Accord
    -no ABS on the base/LX Accord....... (surprised me..)
    -Gas Struts on the Camry (the difference is there..)

    Maybe you can tell us what you are looking for and what is your budget? Both cars can vary ALOT depending on your budget.

    just for the looks:

    Seems like Accord have a little better safety ratings, however, both are pretty solid car and safe.

    Camry Safety Ratings

    Accord Safety Ratings

    From my experiences driving both Toyota and Honda,

    Toyota - Comfort and smooth ride
    Honda - Firm and solid ride, easy to drive, manuvers really good

    I think my real choice would be the Camry but if I were really interested in the Accord I would probably extend my budget for the TSX.

    im a total honda believer. I have had a civic since 1999 and dogged the hell out of it and it keeps coming back for more. I dont see how the accord engine could be that much more worse.

    votes for accord.

    but if looking to race...i say get a nissan

    Same. But then, at that price point, there are better choices..(again, paying $43 grand for a 4banger isnt exactly a good deal..)

    No that was street racing in the special olympics.

    I would have to say, drive both and then decide. They are both proven cars that will last a lifetime if cared for. Also both solid built machines. It's more or less preference in this situation.

    really can't go wrong with either camry or accord. have had both cars in my family (several from previous generations) and all are still running strong.

    bad things about accords:
    -brakes have always been bad, not sure why
    -interior feels a bit smaller than camry. not small overall, just smaller.
    -pay more for honda resale value

    bad things about camry:
    -styling. have never, ever liked their buick-like styling
    -all the camrys in my family have had water pump problems later on in their lives (post 80K mile mark)

    OT: how can you mention a viper or z06 for racing. especially when your name is SKYLINEpilot. bigger is not always better lol

    anyways back on topic. both cars are good "family" cars but is the camry still on top of the theft list?

    my sister had the same dilemma: camry or accord

    if you read some of my posts, you'll see that she ended up getting a camry, because its like an accord, but slightly cheaper. She also likes many of the features offered. With a lot of extras thrown in, your camry can still be cheaper than the base accord. From my experience driving the camry, i really love the comfortable ride, the responsiveness, and the fule economy . But that was her choice, and i dont think you can really go wrong with either car. And IMO the accord has an ugly behind
