2009 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


The transmission is quick to kick down to a lower gear and hold the rpms high when I need it to.
When I'm driving easy it drives easy as well and gives me soft buttery shifts at low rpm.
It also has an engine braking feature that automatically downshifts if it senses I am dragging the brakes on a long grade. You couldn't ask for a better automatic.

Handling is soft which I prefer, but it also has great feel at the limit, if a turn is taken too fast it behaves predictably and its easy to regain control.

I love the interior, it's minimalist by design, very classy.

Update: I replaced the water pump at 80k miles. It was easy to do and cost about $75. No sign of the excessive oil consumption some are experiencing. I use synthetic 0w20 oil and rev the engine hard on occasion which I feel is essential.
