2012 Toyota Camry: Not Enough Room to Maneuver

December 14, 2011

Due to a major life event, I now wear a ring on my left hand every day. And every time I adjust the power driver seat in our long-term 2012 Toyota Camry SE V6, I realize how little room there is between those controls on the side of the seat and the door panel.

The panel includes a pretty generously sized door bin in the revamped Camry, and it kind of sticks out. My ring also kind of sticks out. And so it invariably scrapes against the plastic panel. It's not the nicest plastic, either.

And so in this case, I would prefer the Camry offered less storage space in this location, so the panel wouldn't extend out as much, so I'd have a little more room to maneuver my hand when adjusting the seat. Even without a ring on your finger, these quarters are tight.
