My parents bought my Camry new in 1995 and I recently inherited it. It now has 180,000 miles and is showing few signs of its age. Although it has certainly been a reliable car, the Camry's performance is barely adequate. The lack of power becomes a big issue when merging onto highways at high speeds. The car accelerates very slowly and there's lots of body roll on turns unless you take them very slowly. This might be acceptable for the average driver, but if you prefer an engaging driving experience, the Camry is not for you. I'll be selling mine soon.
Reliablilty and solid build quality. The ride is relatively comfortable, although there is a bit too much road noise.
Better handling, less wind noise, more power, better stability at high speeds
