 2012 Toyota Camry SE: Ride and Noise

I've got a couple follow up thoughts about the Camry after yesterday's post. One, I'll agree with Erin -- the cabin is a bit noisy at freeway speeds. Not terrible, mind you, but certainly noticeable. There are quieter midsize sedans out there.

Then there's the ride quality. We've written a lot of positive posts so far about our SE's suspension tuning. And I'd agree that it's the ideal Camry setup for people who at least like to drive a little (likely, everybody reading this). But I can also picture many Camry buyers -- the multitudes who previously bought a Camry for the car's appliance-like personality -- being happier with the regular suspension tuning. The SE does let in a fair amount of road imperfections that those buyers might find objectionable.

In the end, though, it's nice that Toyota gives you a choice.
