Arguably better in every measurable way, the thoroughly tweaked 2012 Toyota Camry has what it takes to retain its already bountiful buyer base and make an even-stronger case for consideration by anyon
Its comprehensive list of enhancements notwithstanding, those with more avant-garde styling preferences still will find the 2012 Toyota Camry sedan falls short in the head-turning department, especial
Toyota engineers diligently worked to improve the new Camry sedan's structure and suspension. More high-strength steel increases rigidity of the body while trimming weight – significantly on gasoline models and by over 230 whopping pounds on the Hybrids. Revised chassis components and new geometry give all Camry versions a more confident feel with better ride compliance and body control, changes that are particularly noticeable when the going gets twisty. Numerous new noise-abatement technologies also make the 2012 Toyota Camry far qu

Pros: "Safest choice for your hard earned money, mpg exc!"
Cons: "LE shocks on SE, bigger temp gauge, dump paddles !"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bullet proof engine and drive train without problematic direct injection or CVT tranny (read forums) roomy, quiet, refined engine/drivetrain, exc re-sale, mpg and base model can be had for under $20k with free money now! I own the 12 SE 2.5 find it upscale with compact car mpg! Look under the car-aero dynamic covers, robust components -a little over engineered in the SE for it's target but that's value! SE is too firm when driving slow on bumpy pavement, the shift paddles are a gimmicky waste that could be spent on a bigger temp gauge, etc and the paint under ultraviolet is marginal, but if you keep your cars and want reliability and function, best value/choice-no brainer! CRV, new Rav and regular Prius are excellent choices too-did massive homework on these and almost pulled the trigger on a Prius/CRV! I keep my cars 10+ years, still wrench a little and need 30 mpg avg+, so Camry. Many don't like the wedge/clean look, I do, it's aerodynamic with .28 drag-makes it quiet and increases mpg with conventional engine & drive train! Well done Toyota Production Systems-you've changed the world of autos for the better! Most American made too! Thanks, Picky Engineer"

"The car looks like Toyota went with the cheapest things they could get away with. After less that 24 hours of owning the vehicle. The car gave out and left us stranded away from home. Less than 120 miles and it gave out. Toyota refused to give us a new replacement. Then there are issues with the radio and Navigation system. It's the cheapest and most difficult to use. There are numerous problems with the Navigation(Toyota says "it's functioning as designed"). The radio sometimes picks up your phone and sometimes it won't. The usb gets stuck on the same song. The MPG has dropped to only 22.7 miles total, Hiwhway or street. All you get is 22.7. Toyota is basically sticking to "It's functioning as designed". The seats are so uncomfortable and feel like cheap leather.After only 3 weeks, the shift knob peeled. Really cheap material.Worst car I ever owned and I had a 2011 Camry that was great. Toyota just went with the cheapest build."
