2011 Camry LE I4 can be purchased for under $20K and current model is in the end of it's production cycle. While current Camry has it's shortcomings, it does deliver. I remember Car and Driver magazine choose it to be #1 sedan on the middle of unintended acceleration smear campaign. They said while Camry is not superior in every department, it does excel as a package and this is hard to beat. We'll soon see what next generation Camry has to offer, I'm sure Toyota folks worked hard to keep Camry #1 sedan on the market.

Hybrid, not low end base line cream puff model. To think that the seats in the Hybrid are no better than those in the baseline I4. It really is a moot point at this time since the Fusion I have is hands down far better than anything Toyota has to offer. I like a car that can handle curves and has a sporty suspension and that is NOT a Camry. The only reason the Camry is selling is the soft mushy ride most people are used to, and think that a car that you feel bumps in the road is bad. If I want a row boat, I would get a row boat, and the Camry is a rowboat compared to the Fusion. Wallow on down the road, wallow on down the road.

Not old news if you own one.
Rather than posting in the Camry forum how bad they are, why not go to a Ford forum and post how good they are.
Consumer reports still rates Honda, Subura and Toyota as higher quality than Ford.

Calling Camry "rowboat" is a stretch especially for Ford lowers. It is true that Camry LE-XLE provide smooth quiet ride and this is why people like them. If you want more control then SE is available and it provides better handling and road feel. I used to own an Accord before, it had crispier handling and better road feel but I have no regrets for moving to Camry. You must be forgetting that Camry is a family sedan and majority of people who drives them in late 30 and older. Toyota did very well identifying what kind of ride this group of people is looking for. If I'd be looking a sportier ride then I'd move to something more enjoyable then Fusion.

I agree, instead of posting how bad you think the Camry is, go over and post how good you think the Fusion is. Makes no sense really to be so negative in here as any Camry lover will dismiss what you write so why bother. I'm sure the numbers will attest to how many folks still buy the Camry in this country even when subtracting out fleet sales and love it.
Personally, I'm glad you love your Fusion, why buy something you hate. But to go on and on in a Camry forum is tedious at best and remember, your opinion is just that...yours! Time to give it a rest now. Back to lurking again.
I am...The Sandman!
