This past December, we purchased a 2012 Toyota Camry in red. Red is our color for cars. Red looks so beautiful when it’s clean and in the sun.

Toyota Entune Technology

My personal favorite feature of the Camry is the Entune technology which you can read about in my Entune post. Toyota has a lot of Toyota apps available for the iPad and iPhone, so be sure to check them out if you are considering a Toyota vehicle.

Our second vehicle is not a Toyota because we needed a big honkin’ car to travel with 4 kids and a dog and luggage, so I was excited to get back to a Toyota in our first car.

Camry Reliability

The Camry has been a reliable car for us in the past. My husband drives the car to and from work so we wanted something that had good gas mileage and was comfortable for him. He often drives with others in the car, so the Camry was perfect because the backseat is comfortable for adults as well as kids.

The Camry cars that we have owned in the past help up their value better than any other cars that we have owned. We never had problems trading it in or selling it depending on which path we chose.

As the gas prices go up and up, we find ourselves driving our Camry more and more. If we are taking 4 or less people in the car, we try to use the Camry instead of our SUV.

We have had the Toyota Camry for 3 months now and my husband’s only complaint is that it isn’t a convertible (and that is only on days that are at least 60 degrees.) I love driving the Toyota Camry.

 

Trusting My First Born to Toyota

One of the biggest reasons we chose a Toyota Camry this time was because our oldest son is now 15.5 and has his Learner’s Permit. I wanted a car that I felt comfortable with my 16 year old son driving. That’s a Toyota Camry.
