'The 2012 Toyota Camry Connects'

The Camry has had some troubles in recent years with quality issues, natural disasters, and the like. But the 2012 Camry wants to change those negatives into something positive.

The new car sure does look the part, like it's ready to inhale, yes, inhale, the road. The SE is even called "appropriately sporty." I'm not sure what that means, but I loved hearing it.

The interior is deemed artful. I agree, it looks like a Georgia O'Keefe painting. I understand the Camry isn't for enthusiast buyers and is more appliance than performance car, but the speedy versions of the Camry are like a turbo refrigerator. It sounds like a good idea on paper, but then it feels all tacked on.

Full Disclosure: I'm not sure there is a turbo refrigerator.

Ok, enough of my yapping, listen to John Davis wax poetic as the Camry is taken out along the highways and byways of Colorado and Washington, not suburban Maryland.

My brother has a ALL black 2013 Camry V6, handles and especially accelerates waaaay better than any old BMW or Audi i've ever owned. Sorry it doesn't have a carbon fiber monochassis for you enthusiasts, but its not a bad car imo. Plus with extended warranty and 2 year maintenance plan, it is very possible that car could be a daily driver for one of his 2 little boys. Only then will it have this "soul" you guys speak of lol
