2008 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Toyota makes a solid vehicle--this is not news. The 08 Camry SE is large enough to be comfortable but still a nimble performer. Keeping true to Toyota form, the interior is closer to spartan than luxurious. It's well-laid out. Controls are easy to reach and more or less idiot-proof. The 4-banger has enough power to safely merge onto a busy highway or pass a fifth-wheel on a 2-laner. Its lines are clean, but a little ambiguous in light of the Accord. What the Camry lacks in a clear identity it makes up in its overall build quality. All in all, a great car. Won't turn many heads, but it also won't make your head spin at the gas pump.

Best Features

Fuel economy, fuel economy, fuel economy. Smooth inline-4, tight handling, responsive in all respects.

Worst Features

The automatic transmission can be herky-jerky coming out of 1st gear. The radio appears to be designed for baby-boomers with its obnoxiously large display and buttons. The light blue backlighting of the console smacks a bit girly. Too much stuff hanging off the steering wheel--why the button hate?
