I just traded in a 1997 Maxima with 207k miles on it for a 2012 Camry LE 2.5 instead of the hybrid. It was a matter of price and availability. I bought the Maxima brand new 15 years ago and was pleased with it despite having to replace some expensive parts to keep it going. It was worth it. It never stranded me and always gave me plenty of warning when a part was wearing out.
The Camry gets better gas mileage on regular than my Maxima 3.0/5MT did on premium. It will do even better once it's broken in. I'm very pleased with this Camry. I can't find a thing wrong with it after 920 miles. My oil dipstick still reads full and the oil is still crystal clear. The 6AT is operating as programmed. It looks like Toyota finally got everything right on this new Camry.
Perhaps my next car will be a hybrid if I can get a decent deal on one. This one will do fine for several years.

If you can, make sure doing so won't void any part of the warranty.

Sounds like a bad wheel bearing. I had that problem on my old Maxima. I thought I had a bad tire. It was a wheel bearing. A new bearing quieted it right down.

Did your tramline problem get resolve? I purchased Camry 2012 XLE and experiencing similar problem. I have Michelin Primacy on my car. No help from Toyota.

Hi, Toyota said they know about the problem and working on it, but no resolution so far. So, I studied on my own and replaced the tires with
Michelin Primacy MXM4. That fixed the issue. Michelin will replace the tires, but you may have to pay for installation. I learned my lesson. Never buy the first year car!

My car already has Michelin Primacy MXM4 but still tramlines badly. Will call Michelin and see if they can help. Agree, should never buy car the first year.

On the way to home from dealer, I noticed wind noise from left hand side of driver. Returned to dealer next day, they denied any excessive noise. Anybody has had luck with fixing the issue?

Take a close look at your tires.... You have MXV4 not MXM4.
I had MXV4 and put on MXM4.

#203 of 262 Phone voice command stopped working....
Jul 01, 2012 (6:35 pm)
My phone stopped working with bluetooth when I tried doing the verbal commands...it sounded like a problem with the microphone. I took it to the dealer...my phone worked fine and was paired with the car....but did not recognize my phone commands. First the service adviser checked my phone and of course it was fine...and than he turned the vents from the air conditioning down....I thought he was just guessing but sure enough the voice commands worked fine. This is a known problem and yet Toyota has not let the customer know....it needs to be fixed. If you have your air vents turned up high it distorts your microphone which sits up high but your moon roof. Some type of wind deflector would solve the problem. Come on Toyota let your customer know.......
