Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you.
I run a Toyota dealership service department. The failure rate on 2007 Camrys is extremely low. They are, however, very susceptible to failure if you get the car stuck in snow and over rev the transmission.
Secondly, lack of proper maintenance can and will result in transmission problems.
All in all, this trans is pretty durable. I would not be overly concerned with stuff you read on the internet and other places.
Yes, we have replaced a few in the shop...however, the ones we replaced did not fail on their own due to design problems or anything that Toyota could have controlled...the failures were caused by the drivers.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reply
