2012 Toyota Camry Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Camry SE: Feeling Patriotic

November 06, 2012


Election Day always brings out the patriot in me. Exercising a basic component of democracy is important, whatever your political leanings may be. How did I celebrate? I drove to work in our long-term Camry, which just happens to be one of the most American cars on the market.

With about 80% of its parts made in the U.S. and assembled in Kentucky and Indiana, the Camry helps to keep Americans hard at work. To be perfectly honest, yeah, it feels a little weird to have a Toyota grab this honor. A Ford Mustang would certainly seem more appropriate, especially if I could do a burnout in front of my polling place, but alas, only about 70% of its parts are domestic.
