2005 Toyota Camry Standard 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Our Camry has been flawless in the two years we've owned it. We have consistently gotten over 33 mpg and it handled two New Hampshire winters without a hitch. It's fun to drive, has decent pickup, and is comfortable to ride in for long trips. My wife and I have driven a number of other midsized rental cars on vacations and not once have we found a better vehicle for our needs.
Large trunk, standard transmission, great "brights" on headlights, and excellent air conditioning/heating system. Also great gas mileage for a decent sized vehicle and the turning radius is unmatched.
Front seats could be a bit deeper and backend rises which makes backing up difficult in some situations.
