Great car, but terribly uninteresting.
January 21, 2019
Toyota is well-known for its reliable vehicles, which is great. However, as a mid-20s driver, I find it terribly uninteresting in style, and drive. For the most part, it’s a smooth ride with a 4cyl engine that performs well for what I need. It’s very roomy inside with a large trunk. However, I do prefer tighter, sportier handling. Interior styling and technology is ok, but leaves much to be desired. Occasionally music via Bluetooth sounds like an old cassette tape (not sure why).
As somebody who lives in northern Minnesota, performance on snow and ice is important and this is where the Camry lacks. Stability control doesn’t kick in when I’d like/need it to and I often get stuck travelling very slowly on moderately icy/snowy roads. In contrast, my old 2012 Focus made driving on ice a breeze. Perhaps I’ll try different tires.
