Purchased As Used
I've been driving for over 35 years and often yearned for a family car with decent performance combined with a low cost of ownership. I didn't think it was possible to have my cake and eat it too until now.
I purchased a used '09 Toyota Camry SE new several months ago and so far I am really enjoying this vehicle.
I really appreciate the sports-tuned suspension and the stiffened chassis. The car handles really well and yet I still find the ride smooth and comfortable. The car has a very sure-footed feel around corners and on the freeway, even in heavy cross winds.
The brakes are excellent. Stops are quick and very controlled.
My vehicle is equipped with a 5 speed Automatic transmission coupled with a 4 cyl engine. Acceleration is good and downshifts are very smooth. I think the performance of the 4 cyl engine is very good and I have never felt the need for a 6 cylinder motor in this car. I certainly enjoy the fuel economy of the 4.
The interior is quite roomy and I find the driver's seat very comfortable. I prefer firm and supportive seats and that's exactly what I have found in the SE. Even after five hours of non-stop driving I did not feel any fatigue or discomfort due to the seats. The feedback from my passengers regarding the seats has been excellent.
The front air dam is a little low and susceptible to hitting higher curbs and barriers in parking lots. Perhaps it should be raised a few inches.
This is a minor point, but the sill on rear bumper should be better protected (with say a hard plastic liner) from scratches and scuffing when moving objects in and out of the trunk.
The only quality problem I have found is that the rubber seal around the drivers side window was not properly installed and as a result, there is an air leak which becomes noticeable at freeway speeds.
I will summarize by saying that I think this vehicle delivers outstanding value and I would definitely purchase another.
