A Middle Class Mercedes
By LN on
2010 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Outstanding exterior compared to current Lexus and Mercedes sedans. Dwarfs entire Camry lineup in style and ride. Excellent pickup from dead start. Braking is less than expected, especially with 4 wheel discs, ABS, 17/55 sport tires. Amazing 6 Speed transmission: silky smooth feel/power transfer. Sporty suspension/steering is controlled, responsive, and absorbs bumps well. Grating road noise from Toyo Proxie tires robs me of pleasure. Cutting edge style and technology diminished by shortcomings of interior design, finish and materials: Side Mirror, Cruise, Wiper Controls Challenging at Night. Cheap carpeting and inferior door trim plastics. Dash rattling when A/C on.
Perforated, Heated Leather Seats. Distinctive Exterior: Wheels, Lower Body Moldings, Grille. Satellite Radio With Handsfree Phone. Radio/Phone Controls on Steering Wheel. Valet Trunk Lock. Automatic Headlamps. Auto Dim Mirror W/Compass. Great Horn. LED tail lamps
Cover exposed front seat bolts. Lighted visor vanities. Reposition/ illuminate mirror, wiper, cruise, trunk release controls. Bluetooth easier to program w/ more memory. Seatbelts easier to buckle. Recirculate mode on A/C for all functions. Breakaway Door Mirrors W/ Turn Signals. Thicker Carpets.
