2012 Toyota Camry awesomeness.

Very convenient and reliable car. Average build with a sleek look. This car has a lot of trunk space. Wish there was a little more room in the back seats but comfortably seats a convertible car seat and folded stroller. Runs smooth. Is a bit low to the ground so you will scrap your hood if you get too close to a curb or going up/down steep hills/driveways. Constantly beeps if front seat belts are not on. Brake and gas sensitive but easily adjusted. The ac and heat take a few minutes to work after the car has started but both work extremely well with no problems ever breaking. The right passenger mirror, however, keeps popping out. My battery has only died once since having it for 2 years. Would recommend for single/couples with maximum of 1 child but cannot fit more car seats comfortably. Very easy to navigate. Also has 2 phone chargers.

Most reliable car I have ever owned.

So far in over six years I have not had any major problems with this car. I have always done the scheduled oil changes and have never missed one. Also air filter changes have been on a regular basis. So far in all the six years I have had to replace only two low beam headlight bulbs. Three years ago I made a cross country trip that started in Albuquerque to Tampa Florida then to New York city and back to Albuquerque again. After the trip I had the tires balanced after it was over. The total mileage I have today is 56, 500. Also I might add is that this car has never been in the repair shop for anything but routine maintenance. My last car was a Chevrolet Malibu and I had nothing but major repairs ranging from electrical problems to overheating, and only after 4 years of ownership.

Review of 2012 Toyota Camry.

I went from a SUV to this Camry. We haven't had any problems until recently. We special ordered this car, it took about 6 weeks to get it. The only problems I have had is the GPS has quit working. It just searches but never pulls up & I cannot get the Bluetooth to work. We took it in but the warranty had run out so we will have to pay for the fix. Over all we've been pleased with everything except the wearing of the leather on the driver's seat. It has worn out sooner than we think it should have because we had taken really good care of the car. Although we've been pleased with the car I am looking to go back to a SUV. In my opinion, the car is not comfortable on a trip.
