Review Title: 3rd Time Around — Recently I purchased a 2012 Toyota Camry SE. So far I am very happy with the decision. This is my 3rd Camry (previously owned a 2002, and 2005). Both LE. This time I went with the SE as I didn't care for the front end styling on the LE on the new generation (too plain IMHO, even the Chrome bars fail to add any interest), also the light colored cloth seats seemed too hard to keep clean. The SE however while admittedly not as much a stand out visually as a fusion or 6 is clean, understated but classy. I love the fog lights, 17" alloys, and spoiler. Performance is decent. My SE is the 2.5L 4 cylinder. Off the line it's peppy enough. On the highway passing and merging is not a problem. A quick down shift on the paddle shifter makes these things fun(did I just say Fun when talking about Camry). I find the paddle shifters very responsive. The brakes are firm and not mushy. Finally Toyota got the brakes right. The steering and cornering is Camry like, though much improved over past Camrys I've owned or rented. The steering is light and offers very little feedback. If you want sports car agility and feel; try Mazda 6, or Honda Accord. If you want a comfortable, quiet composed ride with reliability to boot. You'll find it here. My SE is very comfortable capable highway cruiser. Gas mileage is great. I can get the advertised 35mpg highway if I am easy on the throttle and stay off those paddle shifters. Otherwise I average around 31-33 highway. Not bad. Definitely a improvement over my 2005. The interior. I like it. Though many car reviews I read slammed it. I think while the interior materials are not as quality as they were in the past, it is certainly better than the misaligned plasticky interiors of the last generation (2007-2011). The front touch areas are soft to the touch. The faux chrome pieces on the SE aren't fooling anyone but, they are tasteful and inoffensive. There is some hard plastic to be found on lower parts of the door sides and the upper part of the dash. Overall the SE's dark interior works for me. I think it will hold up well. I especially like the seats, black Softex (faux leather with dark cloth insets). Definitely classes up the interior. Real leather seats with suede insets are available should you so desire it. The interior is quiet with minimal road noise. I haven't experienced popping noises other report. I do notice a little wind noise. The cars tech is nice. The Bluetooth and iPod, iPhone, jump drive connections are awesome. Pairing my phone was very easy to do. I like the radio and phone controls on the steering wheel. The radio(mine is the standard non-entune, no navi) has a decent interface. It wasn't too hard to figure out. iPod connected no problem. The sound of the stereo is decent. It has tire pressure monitor that will give you the psi for each tire. There is a mpg interface as well. While my car is not perfect (what car is?) overall I love my Camry and I am very happy with my purchase.

Beautiful, eye catching car, with all the modern amenities, such as navigation, back up camera, blue tooth.   Extremely roomy and comfortable.

Cons

A little to sporty- prefer a luxury vehicle

Exceptional Overall — Overall a top quality car for the money. Great amenities for the price. A perfect combination of sportiness and family sedan with plenty of room. Super pick up with a super fast V6 engine while maintaining excellent gas mileage of up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway.

Sporty And Fun Family Car — I love the power this car has. Never a problem passing anyone on the highway. When you hit the pedal, it goes. That's my favorite thing about this car! I also love the sporty look of this camry. Lots of trunk space too. The only con, I wish these came in a convertible. :) Nothing else to complain about.

Incredibly Well Thought Out Car For Today's Commuter. — This car is incredible. 43 mpg, Hands free connectivity with phones and media players, Voice activated navigation and low maintenance costs. The engineers got this one right. Technology updates via phone links. Very easy to drive. Extremely agile and great acelleration when you need it. Some days, I get in the high 60 mpg on a drive into work.

Reliable And Cheap To Maintain And Operate — This car has been extremely dependable. No problems in snow, sleet, or rain. Enough power to get up and go whenever needed. Quiet ride, lots of storage space, comfortable for longer rides with multiple adults, stereo sounds great, never had any issues with navigation. Push button start and the stitching in the interior were nice touches that added class to the car.

Explicit Toyota Camry Le — I like the fact that the car runs very well, and dislike the fact that the cabine is not strong, but the care is very flexible and reliable, comfortable to ride in and more romantic, So it make a nice Car

Love This Car!!!! — We rented the Camry for a weekend in NY. Fell in love!!! Total package...handling, power, sound system, everything about it is awesome!!! Would be an excellent family car (small family). Lots of trunk space. Lots of cubbies for stuff. Auto/manual tranny gets the job done!!!

Above Average — The Camry I do not own. I test drove it, when I bought my Corolla. I'ts a fine car, all the bells and whistles, like GPS navigation and such, I just could not see spending more than $7,000 more than I did that day.. It's has no peers when it comes to reliability and holds it's re-sale value very well

Looks Great, Rides Great, Good Car — For the dozen or so customers out there who are desperately looking for a ‘sporty’ Camry, this is the best yet. But compared to similarly equipped Optimas and Sonatas, the SE doesn’t hold up on the ‘sport sedan’ front.

2cd Best Car I Had After The 1997 Bmw 528i With Five Speed — Front seat not adequate, fun to drive, quiet immediate torque - no winding up. Visibility out rear side window very good. Steering straight on straights away on highway requires a bit too much attention, although cornering and around curves is very good.
