So, I ended up having to pay another $2,000.00 and trade my 2009 Accord LX for a 2010 Camry LE.
I don't know how you did it but it's a screaming deal that you only need to pay 2K to get rid of the 1 year old car regardless it's 1-2 months old.
gooddeal2- I was working 5 dealers in 3 states when I got the Honda. I hate trying to get these guys to come down to a realistic price but it is possible. i just keep telling one dealer that the other dealer is offering a better deal. If the salesman won't budge then get another salesman. Many ''tell me'' that they are not getting any commission but it is more about total sales. I know they lie but I keep on tying to get the bargain.
I also dealt with around 6 dealers for the Toyota. Some of the online prices they give are bs once you get to the dealer. (My honda was not and neither was the Camry dealr that I eventually went with. I had both send me total out tghe door price with taxes etc...
The Toyota dealer wanted the Accord real bad. Heck it only had 200 miles on it. They told me they wanted it on their lot so they could compare it to their Camrys to potential customers. Yea Sure... In the end they did tell me...NOW GO AWAY....LOL
I might of mentioned that they did stick me with the upgraded radio after lying to me and telling me that the car I wanted was on a boat coming from Japan and it had the radio or I would have to wait a month. I was happy that they were so busy that they still had Camrys made in Japan coming to America. I asked for the boats name so I could track it and they could not find the info. hmmmmmm Then when the car arrived I looked at door plate and it said made it Kentucky. My salesperson said ''oh they just put that plate on it'' I went to management to get the truth and then my salesperson said she did not know that it came from Kentucky....after she showed me what was supposedly my car on a boat. You can get the deal. If they don't come down ...Walk away. They need to sell cars.

Yeb, you got a real deal there. About 2 years, I wanted to trade in my Altima for a new Accord (old design '07) b/c they had heavy discount. The dealer wouldn't give me a penny more than the auction number on the Altima b/c they said they will NOT keep the car on lot. They will send it to auction. They don't want people to compare the Altima w/ the Accord.
I didn't really trust the guy, so, I decided to walk around their used car lot and I couldn't find an Altima. I saw a couple Maximas. When I got home, I check their website and I didn't see any Altima also.
I ended up w/ a new Altima instead b/c Nissan dealer wanted my car on their lot and they offered me more than the Honda dealer.
I tried to get a new Altima late last month and the dealer let me walk out for $200 diff.

Mine is does not pull- straight, no problem. Have you tried driving the same route with a car you think can travel in a straight line?

Okay - I just turned the keys to an '03 Accord that I drove and loved and put 116K miles on it. In turn, I bought a 2010 Camry LE. I love the new Camry, but I loved the Accord back in '03 when I bought it. I will say that the Camry is much quieter than the Accord, but like you said, the Camry interior layout isn't as 'flashy' as the Accord. I noticed some of the same things you mentioned as well...the center console has a crappy little tray that is difficult to move, the USB outlet is sorta out of the way, the pockets on the back of the seats are 'low quality', the trunk however, i have no problems with - very roomy. i do find myself speeding because of how quiet the cabin is. All in all, I really like me car. My wife drives an '03 Camry and I'm having a hard time keeping her out of my newer model.
AND......the son loves the Honda.

Yes, I agree the interior is not as plush as it was in earlier models (2002-2006), but if you consider all the stuff that has been added (traction & stability control, 7 airbags, etc) larger engine, AND the fact that the price has not really gone up, if you take into consideration inflation, it makes it a little more tolerable. Other makes have cheapened the interiors as well. Personally, I would pay a little more for a nicer interior, but it is not terrible. It is very functional and laid out, just not as plush as prior generations. I stiif recommend putting some white lithium grease on the tray to make it easier to move.

It appears from isolated testing by owners on PriusChat the the new 2010 Prius has the smart brake override installed - but not announced - already. It works as indicated.
#643 of 1027 Front passenger floor question
Dec 07, 2009 (7:18 am)
Just purchased a 2010 Camry. I noticed a skuishy feeling on the front passenger floor.
Like part of the floorboard is missing.
Has anyone else noticed this? Maybe it's normal.

Normal - nothing to worry about. Most cars use extensive padding under the carpeting.
