2012 Toyota Camry SE: A-to-B Car, But Better
April 25, 2012
Our Camry is an excellent A-to-B car. It's comfortable, the controls are logical, there's plenty of interior storage and the trunk is decent sized. There are also some nice conveniences or upgrades on our car like keyless access, leather/faux-suede upholstery, heated seats and the Entune suite of features. I was thinking about this today as I picked a friend up from the airport. You just get in it and drive, no thought required.
But the nice thing is that the Camry doesn't bore or annoy me like the stereotypical A to B car. It goes around corners acceptably, has decent power and responds willingly to my throttle inputs. Our car's $28,658 MSRP (or mid 26K for Edmunds TMV) seems like a very agreeable price to me. I'd buy one.
