2013 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)

Review

6 months of use. Changed from Honda coupe (V6, manual 6) to 4dr, 4cyl Auto. Firm ride but power steering too strong for good tracking and feedback. City stop/go driving gets 35-30 mpg, interstate driving 33-36 mpg. 2 trips (1 hour, 4 hours) with more go than stopping and less than 65 mph gave over 40 mpg. With cruise control turned on and going uphill, the computer downshifts from 6th gear to 4th gear AND then figures out it only needs to be in 5th gear. Transmission logic needs adjustment. 4 cylinder is slightly underpowered but manual shifting helps.

Favorite Features

SE body panels look sporty and interior changes are a step above any of the "L" versions.

Suggested Improvements

Toyota could/should separate and "de-package" the option list. Can't get extras without undesirable options. Improve the transmission logic. Reduce the too strong power steering to improve handling/feedback.
