2011 Camry XLE
By jerryaustin on
2011 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We purchased a 2011 Camry XLE 6-cylinder 2+ weeks ago.
I have been very impressed with the car so far although I know all new cars drive well.
We traded in a 2001 Honda Accord wiht 160,000+ miles on it.
Loved the Accord, but the Honda dealers in our town have very few vehicles and are charging MSRP for the ones they do have.
I know the Camry is supposedly boring, but that's what I wanted.
I want quiet and reliable.
Our old Honda was a little noisy, but to be fair it was a 10 year old car.
A few reviews I read reported the Honda reported the Honda as noisy primarily due to the Dunlop tires which were selected for enhanced mileage.
I might have bought another Honda, but there really
were none available.
I particularly like the audio features.
The Bluetooth operates flawlessly and the sound quality is excellent.
I can play music on my IPhone 4 while it is in my pocket.
I particularly like playing music on Pandora receiving audio over a data network.
I connected a flash drive into the USB port so that my wife can listen to her music.
I get the song name and artist displayed on the radio display.
I noticed that there is a hole to run an IPOD chord out of and a little holder for the IPOD on the right side of the console.
Very thoughtful design.
Oh, and the car is quiet.
That was important to me.
Acceleration is certainly adequate for me.
My local dealer gave us
free oil changes for life.
Check with dealers in your area to see if the also offer this.
I know they will try to sell me stuff when I come in, but that's a savings of about $50-60 everytime I need an oil change.
