2012 Toyota Camry Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Camry: Unassuming, But Still Well Liked

July 18, 2012

 2012 Toyota Camry

We've got some pretty cool cars in the fleet right now. FR-S, JGC SRT8, NSX, XF ... but our Toyota Camry SE is still one of my favorites.

Yeah, I know. Lame, right? But it's a lot like Erin wrote a couple of months ago in her Greater Than The Sum post. The Camry doesn't knock you on the head with anything dramatic, but it's supremely competent and easy to to live with. Sometimes I like getting in and just driving, not having to worry about scraping on speed bumps or how I'm going to fit a child safety seat.

Yes, our Camry is boring, applicance-like transportation. But it's really good at that. And it's not too boring, like the Camry used to be.
