Reviews for 2012 Toyota Camry

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5 (116 reviews)

Car is very good for me. I don't do a lot of driv

The care is small and is easy for me, a small person, to handle. It is also comfortable for me to dive. So far my gas mileage has been good. However would not recommend this care for a large person or persons.


  • Fuel Economy: Fuel economy is always a plus
  • Value: It appeared to be priced same as other vehicles of same type.
  • Seat Comfort: The seats are smaller than some cars and as a small person, that is good.


  • Visibility: I have found that I don't have as much visibility when making turns in confined spaces as I had when I had a larger care.

Transmission is HORRIBLE!!!!

HATE the transmission - labors, makes an awful road strip noise, when coasting to stop signs, etc. it feels like somebody has tapped the brake and really kicks it down into lower gear. This transmission is HORRIBLE. 3x to the dealer - couldn't fix. Reported to Toyota - no follow up from dealer even after leaving two voice mails for them WILL NOT be buying another Toyota after this experience even though this is the 5th Toyota we've bought in the past 8 years. No thanks

Best car I ever owned

I bought a 2012 Toyota Camry SE with the 6 cylinder engine and I am very satisfied with my purchase. It has plenty of leg and head room, interior space, nice sized trunk and great on gas. This Camry came with everything I wanted plus some surprises like a clear bug shield and illuminated electric blue Camry kick plate. This vehicle rides and handles great, responsive steering and manuverability is smooth. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a dependable and gas saving vehicle. Road noise is minimal, the gauges/knobs are easily readable and not clustered plus there are plenty of cup holders for your drinks, two in the middle console, front doors plus two in the armrest in the backseat. Great vehicle for the money and very nice.


  • Fuel Economy: 6 cylinder gets great fuel mileage
  • Ride and Handling: Feels like being connected with the road
  • Reliability: My 3rd Camry and all have been excellent in reliability
