Hot Car Feels Like A Real Sports Sedan —

Well just got the car two days ago so this is a short review. The car feels very solid and seating is very good with great support for some of us older people with a tired back. The power is great 0-60 is a rocket ride with enough G Force to make you grin from ear to ear. No rattles no squeeks. The suspencion is a true sport type so you do feel a few bumps. The car is very solid however and a bump lets you know you are sitting on an agressive package.I can hardly wait to road trip this cool ride. Oh and it still feels classy so when i have my suit on I think I can pull up to the vallet and they will still call me sir. I have not had time to set all the functions on the sound and phone system but the basic cell operation worked well just pair your phone settings to Blue Tooth and with a voice command you can say "my baby"and chat her up with out ever taking your hands off the wheel. So for the future thrill I rate the Camary SE as killer dude. For the classy side a night at the opera and every one riding with us sees Phantom in style. So for a near 60 guy who has loved sports cars all his life way cool. For the kid in me killer dude. And for class "Bond" James Bond.

Excellent Car! —

I have an '08 Camry XLE, and I absolutely love the car. The redesign in '07 made some huge advances to the car's interior features. The navigation system works well and the touch screen is very user friendly. The odometer/instrument panel is much like the Lexus's now in that it's blacked out until the car is on. This car has tons of head space (I'm tall), leg room, cup holders, and storage compartments! I love the AUX jack for my iPod, and though it is not extremely easy to access, it's placement near a power outlet is ideal. The 8-speaker JBL sound system is amazing and produces quality audio at any volume. The pollen filter is another feature that I will appreciate come Spring. One of my favorite features of this car is the rear window shade. Although manual, it is a huge comfort feature for rear-seat passengers and helps to keep the car cooler while sitting in the sun. The back seat is great for passengers with plenty of leg room, rear air vents, cup holders, reading lights, and (extremely cool) reclining rear seats. The downside to having the reclining seats is that they eliminate the folding rear seat -- leaving you with only a small pass through for a broomstick. This is a great-looking car. The Camry has been bland since the late 90's redesign, but has finally come back around. The only real interior complaint I have is that the instrument panel and navigation unit are too bright at night. You can adjust both (independently), but it isn't convenient to do, and you would need to adjust back for daytime use. Tying this in with the auto headlight sensor and adding an auto dimmer would be nice. The moonroof's auto open/close feature is a nice extra and though I don't have a wind deflector, the moonroof stops short of being completely open to reduce wind noise. I will openly admit to not knowing much about what's under the hood, but I have already experienced a slight issue with the transmission. When merging into interstate traffic, there is a much-to-long hesitation before accelerating (after pushing the gas pedal) - causing scary, potentially dangerous moments. Check out some owner reports at www.nhtsa.dot.gov , and test this out during a test drive! Other than this, the 4 cl. engine is quite powerful and the car handles well and is quiet. These are my opinions/observations after 1 month and 1,000 miles in this car.

Pros: Styling, features, comfort, interior, value

Cons: acceleration hesitation (4cl.) when merging into freeway traffic. Instrument panel too bright during night driving.

Smooth And Swift — This car has been extremely reliable and pulls really good for 268 hp. The fuel for her is very good, especially now with gas being so low, about $25 every week or 2 weeks depending on how much I drive. The car is extremely comfortable and roomy, excellent for long drives.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth handling, fast takeoff, and very comfortable.

Cons: Hard to think of some, this would be a more family friendly car, if you want something to fuel your adrenaline look somewhere else. Also sucks in the snow from time to time.

The Best Family Car I Have Owned — Excellent cruising car, gas mileage on the highway usually in mid 30's, fantastic sound system, heated leather seats are really nice in the winter, tinted windows cut down on the glare in the sun, engine is very powerful and has great passing power.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FUEL ECONOMY, MOON ROOF, SOUND SYSTEM,

Cons: Wish it had navigation system

I Couldn't Have Asked For A Better All Around Car. — Liked everything. Top of line 4 cyl XLE hits me just right in pampering. Very comfortable seat and ride quality even over rough and worn roads. The economy was especially nice. I averaged a lot of 26 worst case winter short trips and 30/31 all summer, to even an easy 35 mpg's screaming down freeway with family and a/c on. One time I carefully drove it 200 miles and had economy meter at 39.5 mpg's by the time I got there. It still had plenty of power as long as below 80 on Interstate and trying to pass, that was the only time it "wheezed" for more power, which isn't necessary to even be there. I should've kept that one for a long, long time. I miss it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It never needed any repairs but a window seal replaced (free) as it would cause the power window to reverse, not close fully, that was the only thing in like 70,ooo miles !!

Cons: Motor was a bit noisy when "floored".

2008 Toyota Camry XLE V6 Review
Chris says:
Yawn. Cheap interior materials, sloppy handling, not the durability I expected. Noticeably slower and less nimble around corners, than my Milan Premium Edition. Back seat comfort, is ok for a taxi. But not a luxury family car. Traction control is ok, but not a winter car. Hydroplaning is not my favorite thing. AWD is not available for some unexplainable reason
