Picked up the car on 4/18/09- Date of manufacture is 03/09. New 2.5 engine mated to the new 6 speed automatic transmission is a big plus. Vehicle stability control is now standard. I've only had the car for 1 day- I'll report back later. Plenty of room and power. It pays to get the new 2010 over the 2009. As of today the 2010 Camry is not on the Toyota website. They're pushing out the 2009's. Go for the 2010 with the upgrades.
New Engine and Transmission
The oil filter on this car uses a paper element inside the screw-on housing. And it's not readily accessible. Toyota forgot about the car owners changing their own oil - The filter on my '91 Camry looked you right in the face when you opened the hood, and was the canister type. No paper element.
