The car does have two power outlets. One is in the front compartment under the heater controls, and the other is in the compartment right in front of the arm rest. Or is that because mine's AT?Report it
Yes, with automatic, you get two power outlets - only one with manual under the heater controls behind the door. The 2 things I don't like about my '10 base manual 6 speed is the forward cup holder is not very usable around town, because the shifter hits most things you have in it. The other negative thing is the shifter is too long - should be about 3 inches shorter.Report it
How is the transmission/clutch to drive? Is it fun? I imagine you'd get more power out of the engine that way. To answer your question, it definitely makes the Camry more fun to drive vs. automatic, but I think that a manual tranny makes ANY car more fun. Too bad most people seem to hate manuals, or they've never driven one. For a midsize 4 cylinder car, it accelerates pretty quickly.Report it
Update- 8K miles now at good highway speeds and cannot get 30mpg. Consistent 27ish is a bit worse than the 2005 version I had. The gas light comes on with about 5/6 gallons left in the tank- a bit early. Overall, quiet comfortable highway cruiser but the newer bigger engine did affect the mpg more than expected. Of course the manual trans is more fun but the 6th gear seems useless-only worth about 300 rpms on the highway. Still need to go back to 4th to accelerate up hills at all. Will be interesting to see the 2012.Report it
Interesting. I've used my S on the auto shift, and wondered what manual might have been like. Definitely made the car more fun to drive on the back roads. I saw a picture of the manual, and saw the cup holder difference. That's a shame. How is the transmission/clutch to drive? Is it fun? I imagine you'd get more power out of the engine that way.Report it
