Bought it in July '09 and coming up to 5,000 miles. Drives great, but will probably have the idle checked at 1st maint. & oil - idles a little rough occasionally when almost to a stop. The standard shift is fun to drive and everything I expected. Gas mileage is about 20 city/31 hwy. Added some upgrades; pin-striping, window tint, key fob and leather. Looks just like an LE and a stick-shift to boot ! Very roomy. Really like the "beefed-up" look of this generation. Was pleasantly surprised to see just how many amenities came with the base model. A lot of car for the money.
Stick shift ! Roomy interior and trunk. "Beefy" look.
Wish the base Camry came in a larger selection of colors. Cell phone port is difficult to access, especially while driving. Arc is off a tad - requiring more frequent front-end alignments and tire rotations. Glad I bought the Firestone lifetime alignments.
