The gas mileage is better than your 2005 mostly because it is a much newer engine & transmission (2.5 vs. 2.4L), and 6 speed auto, vs 5 speed auto, not because of weight difference. If interior is less than your 2005, consider the price and the fact that the safety of the 2012 is MUCH better than the 2005! Stability control, traction control, crash ratings higher, more air bags, etc. Better sound system also. Funny, most of the professional reviews comment that the interior is good, especially compared to the 2007-2011. They also say the noise levels are EXTREMELY low, compared to other cars in this class.Report it
Why would anyone buy a car that they have not thoroughly tested is beyond anyone's guess? What you are describing as "bad" features are things that anyone could easily evaluate BEFORE buying this car. I drive the same car and I completely disagree with this comment. I have seen the interior of the 2005 Camry and it's not nearly as nice as the one in the 2012.Report it
The SE is the value packed model with a more upscale look in/out/under and drive FYI for about 1500 more!Report it
