2011 XLE V-6
By LBC on
2011 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Replacing a 1998 Accord EX with 97k. Love the quietness, features, and the price. Got it for 28900, including extra value package (heated seats, smart key), spoiler, carpet set, body side molding and mud flaps. Smart key is awesome, Blue Tooth is convenient and easy, awesome JBL, rear sunshade/reclining seats/reading lamps remind passengers of a swanky hotel. Great pickup and passing power with the V-6. Looked at a 2010 Accord (too many buttons, don't care for the styling)and the new Hyundai Sonata. It's about $2,000 less (they are not moving much on the price), some nice features, but IMHO the dash, HVAC and front fender trim are ugly. The Camry is proven and my $278 lease can hardly be beat.
Leather, Smart key, spoiler, Blue Tooth, V-6, ASL on JBL, alarm, sunshade, alloys, manual shift option on automatic transmission, tire pressure monitors, OEM Michelin rubber, 3.67% dealer financing, gauge and dash cluster is classy and very ergonomic, rides like a Lexus at half the price.
A little soft in the corners (I know - it's a Camry!)Pass-through area could be covered with some sort of fabric when rear armrest is down (a very, very minor point). Bumper to bumper warranty should be longer than 3/36 (though powertrain is a decent 5/60).
