2012 Toyota Camry L 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Switched from Altima and Malibu-2nd Camry since Nov 09/2010 model, 2nd recall, same problems- paint scratches easily, "bad glare" from plastic around clock, lots of sun in Texas; Need "keyless" entry in "base" model. Have to pay $1000 more for le. no, no! Trans.searches for gear especially between 40-45 mph. Still doesn't ride smooth even with Michelin tires. But, better than Altima and Malibu as they are"sport" sedans. Toyota needs to change/adjust service warranty as low mileage tires were rotated due to 6 mns main. terms. Caused me to schedule unnecessary service. Sent Toyota customer service complaint last week.

Best Features

Dash is more readable, black with white letters, not plain as 2010 model. Improved stereo speakers, larger in front door than 2010.

Worst Features

Base model should include "keyless entry. More comfortable driver seat, slide around in it. Move "clock" around radio-remove plastic surrounding, causes "glare". Will not purchase another if not changed! Very bad! Safety concern! Improve"paint", scratches easily.worst I've every seen in 45 yrs driving. Improve CVT trans. Don't need bottle holder in drivers side door. Give dealers authority to "work" with customers with service warranty. No "fixed" time limit (as per 6 mns.) Judge by "wear" on parts.
