2013 Camry XLE V6
By retired2013 on
2013 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We bought our newest Camry seven months ago, and have driven it 13,000 miles now.
This is our third Camry so we must like them.
The 2013 V6 is very fast.
The 2013 XLE seems lighter and more nimble than our 2002 XLE. The gas mileage is good and the car is definitely comfortable.
The steering is quicker than prior models, and this model feels better balanced than prior year models too.
Overall a fantastic car to get from Point A to Point B in comfort and safety with attractive styling.
The blind spot indicators and rearview camera are very helpful and will definitely lower accident rates.
We picked up a nail in one tire and the low pressure indicator was helpful.
The windshield wipers work more efficiently than our 2002 Camry.
The cruise control works really well, but incremental speed adjustments while driving would be helpful.
I miss the foot rest to the left of the pedals, which was comfortable on a long trip.
The faux wood is less attractive than our 2002.
More padding in the seats would be a nice.
We're not big fans of the keyless on/off button as it makes it more complex to listen to the radio, etc. when stopped. The quality of the leather in the seats does not seem to be as thick as our 2002, but time will determine on how it holds up.
The functionality of the navigation system is less than perfect, and the designers should try driving long distances with it and making changes while driving.
Cruise control speed adjustments should be more like the Chevy Malibu.
