I have not had this certified 2016 Camry long enough to comment on value or reliability, but I can certainly say something about comfort and quality. The interior material quality is so far below what my old Camry had it's startling, but then that car was a 2002 ,so lots of "water under the bridge" since then. There have been obviously many cost cutting changes since then. At least the black materials conceals some of the cheapness while the tacky ash color option really hi-lighted it. (I'd still have the '02 if it hadn't been in an accident. It was still running great for the amount I drive, and I loved it.) The noise from tires or road noise makes me think there is a drummer under the car banging on twin drums. It's quite intolerable, so I'll have to keep the radio on really loud to mask the din. But the worst feature for me is the horrendous bucket seat which, despite constant efforts, I cannot adjust to be comfortable. The 6 way controls just don't help. Since when is sitting in a depression with your pelvis tilted backward ergonomically desirable. Various cushions and pillows have not helped to date. So I'm not sure what the next step for me is for this newer but certainly not better Camry.
The price, quality & dependability of the engine is great....just not in snow or a lil mud. Traction control sucks. I love that the interior is great quality unlike the chevys I've owned. Gas mileage is great. I recommend putting a small wire mesh around the filter...I have caught 5 mice in my car. I keep a clean car too.
The good...It's very comfortable and nice to look at. I love the blind spot monitor. It comes in handy. The bad....I commute around 50 miles a day in heavy traffic. The engine in this car is not responsive at all. I've owned it for two years and am looking to get rid of it. I was so excited to get my Camry, now I'm more excited to get rid of it.
