Purchased As New
Bought my first 2012 Camry SE (4-cyl) in Magnetic Gray with Navi and Moonroof two days before Thanksgiving in 2011. Within a day I replaced the 17-inch wheels with some chrome 20-inchers. This car was hot but to me it had a lot of show and no go. After my car was damaged along the whole right side of the car in an accident (not my fault) I decided to get another Camry SE but this time it would be a V-6. I initially wanted the same color but the dealer kept pushing me into the one Attitude Black copy that was sitting on their lot. Of course they adjusted the price for me to take it off of their hands but I didn't want it because of the light grey Ultrasuede inserts on the seats. Overall the car is wonderful. Leather and Ultrasuede seats, JBL Audio system, Smart Key with Pushbutton Start and of course the very pewerful V-6 engine. My only gripes with this car is as follows: For a Sport Edition vehicle, the suspension sits too high and is waaay too soft. Softer than that of a standard Honda Accord. Toyota needs to stiffen it up and lower it just a little more to be effective. The transmission also takes a few seconds to react to your input of the gas pedal. Its like you have to stab the throttle much earlier than you need to in order to pull out or away from traffic. The Paddle Shifters on the steering wheel are a joke! Not responsive whatsoever! I've owned 5 Honda Accords in my day, from 1988-2006. 2 Sedans (1) manual, 3 Coupes (2) manual. The 2012 Camry SE is a very nice and sexy vehicle but the sport in SE doesn't exist. A little more sport and probably a 6-Spd manual option (wishful thinking) would make the Camry better than it already is, and would broaden its appeal to more auto enthusiasts like myself!
