2012 Toyota Camry Long Term Road Test


2012 Toyota Camry SE: Something's Missing

January 04, 2012

2012 Toyota Camry SE

My first observation about our longterm 2012 Toyota Camry had nothing to do with the way it drove (a big improvement over the old car, by the way), because at the time I hadn't yet even plopped my svelte yet curvaceous backside into its driver's seat. 

What I noticed was a tiny detail. Rather, the lack of a tiny detail -- a trunk grabby thing. You know, the little plastic handle you grasp to close the decklid so your hands don't get covered with road grime. 

Now, I fully acknowledge that this is not a major thing by any stretch of even the wildest David Lynch-ian imagination. A nit that's getting picked. [insert your own huffy dismissal here]. It's just an odd omission nowadays, especially in a car that sweats the user-friendly details like the Camry does. 

And, hey, this French manicure isn't going to maintain itself.
