2012 Toyota Camry Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Camry SE: Groove Hunting

May 16, 2012

grooved southern california freeway
I took an unplanned trip to Fontana this week, and our LT Camry was my ride. Previously, I've only driven the Camry during slow-speed scenarios, but this foray to Fontana allowed me to drive at real highway speeds. It was during this jaunt that I noticed the Camry's tires' tendency to hunt over the rain-grooved Southern California freeways.

It was like trying to fox trot while your partner insists on waltzing. I wanted to holler, "Will you just let me lead!?"

Any Camry owners having the same experience?
