SE V6 is smooth. by kwap on 05/11/2012. Trim: 2012 Toyota Camry SE V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fantastic motor, it feels effortless and with a combined(city and highway) reduction of only 3 mpg it was a no-brainer decision to get the SE V6. Another factor which pushed me to the SE V6 were some of the other features that are standard with the V6 but are costly options on the 4cy SE like the display audio with Nav/entune, smart key system, SofTex powered driver’s seat with lumbar, acoustic windshield and also the great 18” wheels which are only available with the V6. The redesigned interior is very nice, a huge improvement over the previous model and nicer than the competition.
Cons: The Navigation system locks out many features while the car is moving which is so aggravating as to inspire many four letter words directed towards Toyota. Seriously, this is unacceptable; hopefully a hacker out there can do away with this “feature” very soon. At a very minimum, tie the Nav system to the passenger seat occupancy sensor such that the Nav system would fully operate when a passenger is in the car. The display audio system software is adequate at best. It needs some work regarding usability, hopefully software updates are forthcoming. No upper rear seat AC/Heat vents on the SE model. The tires that come with the 18” wheels are a touring tire which is odd.
Overall review: Overall impression, the SE V6 is the best in the segment at the price at the moment. Maybe the new fusion and accord will have something to say about that, we will see. After considering the Kia Optima(nicest looking), Hyundai Sonata(ghastly looking), Passat TDI(very intriguing), and Fusion(too bad I was not getting a car next year) I found that the Camry SE V6 provided the best of the bunch. Suggested Improvements: Lower windows with key fob(like the accord) Crisper handling. The 18” wheels should come with an all-season performance tire not a touring tire. See above regarding the Nav/Entune system. The usual, make the car lighter, faster, and more efficient.

2012 Camry XLE V6...THE BEST by RON from TEXAS on 01/17/2012. Trim: 2012 Toyota Camry XLE V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 2012 Camry XLE V6...It is a great car! The attention to detail is better than any competitive car...with more and better features like Nav, blind spot monitor, audio, camera, lights, controls. Outstanding performance...speed and handling, comfort, and quality. Lots in common with the Lexus ES350 for about $11,000 less. Averaging about 23 MPG city driving on regular gas. Have received lots of compliments on the styling and interior.
Cons: Trunk light should be brighter.
Overall review: 10

Bland by Golden on 10/28/2012. Trim: 2012 Toyota Camry SE V6.
Pros: Sad to say we like nothing about this car except the front grill.
Cons: We rented a camry in hawaii as it was all they had left. It was very boring with loud engine/road noise. Interior was cheap looking. Parked next to other vehicals in same class made this car appear very dated. This car lacks any wow factor. The rear end looks incomplete.
Overall review: Maybe the appeal is for the Toyota lover's. Back in golden/Denver colorado area we just don't see many new camry's.

Best rental I've ever had by Seattle traveller on 04/01/2012. Trim: 2012 Toyota Camry LE.
Pros: Great handling, quiet on the highway at 70 mph, easy to judge, fun to drive for a family hauler
Cons: I had the LE - I didn't like the steering wheel material (non-leather wrapped). Reminded me of an early 90s pontiac - Toyota, you can do better here.
Overall review: Tight, well rounded car. Lots of rear seat room for kids & car seats
