In fact, the 2012 Toyota Camry for the Canadian market is NOT equipped with TPMS. That from Toyota Canada Inc., sent to me on November 20, 2012.

I had the same whistle noise on a 2012 Camry LE. It was coming from the outside mirror. I put a piece of duct tape over the horizontal seam that allows the mirror to fold in and it was gone. Not too elegant but for a rental it works, the whistle was driving me crazy on the interstate. Would start about 65 MPH
Bad design by Toyota that should have been caught and resolved during development.

I live in NJ and I want to buy a new 2012 Camry SE. I want to pay $23,000 out the door and do not have a trade in vehicle. Am I asking for to little or to much? Can somebody help me with this.
Thanks in advance!

Your best bet is to read messages and then post your question in our Camry Prices Paid discussion.
#247 of 262 Six Months of Ownership
Dec 19, 2012 (2:30 pm)
So six months and 5,000 miles later here is my experience.
First, I wish I had delayed my purchase until the new Accord appeared. I don't know if I would have chosen it over the SE, but I would have liked to done the compare. I have no other regrets, though, regarding the SE versus the Altima, the Sonata, or any clunker from Detroit.
My mileage has dipped into the high 20s from the low 30s. I attribute that to oxygenated gas and running the compressor often to defog.
Performance is still excellent. The Bridgestone Turanzas are still not my favorite tires, especially in the wet. SiriusXM is a great upgrade and I wish I had the back-up camera.
One feature that is missing relates to the intermittent wipers. My old Accord would slow the wipe cycle down when the car was stopped and immediately start it when you took your foot off the brake. A simple feature that every car should have.
I am surprised Toyota still does not offer body side moldings. I will go to the aftermarket in the spring.
All in all, a happy customer.

Our 2012 SE will be 1 year on Dec. 31, we have almost 18,000 miles on ti. Very good car, got what I expected for the price. Gas mileage is very good. Over 24 around town. Just got back from a round trip to Orlando (approx 600 miles in total), gas was 34.5

Has you ever found out what is the problem? I just bought brand new 5 miles SE and got the same noise. Anybody else has the same problem??

"Performance is still excellent. The Bridgestone Turanzas are still not my favorite tires, especially in the wet."
I wish you luck with the Turanzas. I have a set on an accord. They are very quiet, very smooth, and handle very well in any condition. I have rotated them every 5k miles and always maintained the pressure. These 70k mile tires are now shot at 45k miles - down to the wear bars. The performance has been great, but they did not approach the advertised life expectancy.

Forget the 10,000 mile oil change interval. I had my wife take ours in at 8,000 miles for a free oil change (2 years maintenance included in the purchase) and they sent her away & said to come back at 10,000 miles. At 9,650 miles we had to go on a long trip and couldn't get an appointment so I changed it myself - the oil was BLACK! Next time I will insist on a change at 7,500 miles.
