    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good leg room

    Cons: Loose steering & Takes a while to get up to speed

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: full torque at start, very responsive,42+ overall gpm

    Cons: front seat doesn't properly accomodat tall driver

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 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

    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 cell phone data plan. 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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Outstanding gas mileage. Easy to maintain & superb acceleration. Great connectivity with cell phone and media players.

    Cons: A bit crampt for larger framed humans. Will fit two large folks and three teenagers

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliable
    Comfortable
    Sports Pkg (rims, Spoiler, fog lamps, Softex w/ cloth insert seats, paddle shifters)
    Fuel economy

    Cons: Could use more steering feel
