I am 5'2'' and I am sick that my new car has such an uncomfortable drivers seat. I never had a back problem and I do now. I bought the car for comfort for long drives, and now even in the car for 30 mins., my back is in pain. I am hoping Toyota has some sort of a cushion to rectify this very serious defect in a brand new car. The new 2009 design is the most uncomfortable seat I have EVER driven in, and I have been driving for 36 years in a lot cheaper cars in the past.
It drives very smoothly, therefore tricking me into thinking the seats would be a good design also.
Change the seats to fit smaller people, the new 2009 design is the most uncomfortable seat I have EVER driven in, and I have been driving for 36 years in a lot cheaper cars in the past.
I previously owned 2003 Camry (4- cyl.). I absolutely loved my 2003. I traded it in for the new 2009 body style. My 2009 Camry has very little pick-up. It barely gets out of its own way on Interstate! Scary!!! Also, the door storage areas and console areas are not as large as in the 2003. The 2009 Camry is somewhat disappointing. I don't necessarily dislike the car totally, but I truly miss the pick-up from the 2003 Camry.
I like my Camry. I think the best thing about it was the first time I stepped in it to test drive it, it felt like there was nothing to get used to. You could just get in it and go. Interior quality is about what I would expect on an entry-level midsize car but is better than my Mazda 6's was. It's rattle free. At least there are a couple of bits of metal trim vs. none on the Honda Accord. It's excellent on gas. The engine has a decent amount of power for a 4-cyl, especially on the highway. The driving experience isn't an exciting one but it doesn't feel like driving a boat. The suspension soaks up road imperfections nicely. Overall, a car I can live with for a number of years to come.
I just got back from a cross country trip and I am extremely happy with my new Camry. The ride is exactly what I want from a car. I checked out the Accord and the Altima and the Camry is so much quieter than those it is unbelievable. The only extra I got on mine is the JBL audio system which lets me make hands free calls. This should be something standard on all cars. Also, the sound of the stereo is by far better than anything I've ever had in a car. Love the smooth quiet ride. I highly recommend this car
The gas mileage. I averaged over 33 mpg on for about 3500 miles driving 70 mph with the cruise on. Also, the awesome stereo system.
