I researched the Camry and similar models (Accord, etc) thoroughly before purchasing my XLE two years ago and have been extremely satisfied with my purchase. The car is stylish and extremely reliable, has retained excellent resale value and has many attractive features. It's an excellent value, although I probably wouldn't buy another car at any price point.
XLE model features lighted vanity mirrors (a key selling point in my book) and the rear-view mirror has an integrated compass (so you're always headed in the right direction) and dimmer feature. Wood-grain panelling, in-dash six disc CD changer, and cargo (grocery) net in truck also a plus.
Model could use more cup holders (back seat holders are inaccessible with 3 passengers) and easier to reach stereo controls. Auto door locks have had to be re-programmed several times.
