This One's a Keeper

ReviewI am a DC commuter and purchased this car, primarily, to have access to the HOV lanes on days when I don't have a carpool. With a 40 mile one-way commute in sometimes heavy traffic, average mpg for the first 1500 miles has been 35.5. I will say that this car is a phenomenal deal for the money. Being accustomed to driving higher-end performance cars, we weren't really expecting that much out of the Camry, other than a more economical means of transport that gives to us flexibility in getting in and out of the city. However, we have been absolutely, truly impressed. The Camry has great acceleration and handling, the ride is very smooth, and the fit and finish quality is truly noticeable.
Best FeaturesOverall quality, spaciousness, safety, bluetooth (works most seamlessly with an iPhone of the ones we have tried), very comfortable leather, autodim rearview mirror, energy monitoring system/eco rating. Loading a cd causes the navigation panel to rotate out, which is very cool :).
Worst FeaturesFactory available satellite radio. We purchased the Sirius kit through the dealer, and while it is automatically incorporated into the nav screen, it is pretty limited in user functionality. There is also no integration of the antenna, at all. It is essentially a magnet stuck to the trunk lid.
