I have the SE (sports edition) it has MacPherson struts and shocks, or something like that. It is a bit tighter than the LE, and XLE. It's the sporty model, it goes LE, SE then XLE. It's more for aggressive driving due to the tightness, it doesn't have that "old lady driving on a raft feel".
I recommend getting the windows tinted, a little bright in there without it. And some better rear speakers that allow for bass at high volumes. The current rear speakers are a little disappointing. It plays MP3's so that means you can put like 300 songs on a CD and it will play, as well as an mp3 jack which I use.
What I particularly like about the car is its handling and engine response. On the highway, when I am going about 100-105 mph, it is only revving at about 3000! That's excellent if you are into getting somewhere fast without the engine stress. (!!!LEFT LANE FOR FAST DRIVERS, EVERYONE ELSE KEEP RIGHT, EXCEPT TO PASS!!!)
MPG's are about the same as the sticker in the window.
The SE is the best looking Camry I have ever seen. It looks beefy, real elegant. I took off my "Camry" and "SE" emblems and now nobody knows what it is!
It's quiet. I drove it to Illinois from S. Carolina and back and had no complaints. I drove it in the Smokeys and had ample power, with the AC on.
My son (18 mo) fits in the back and there's room for another kid once I get around to it. The trunk is a fairly large size. Fits stroller, luggage, etc. looks simple enough to work on...
Lots of room to change plugs and oil. I recommend switching to MOBILE Synthetic oil on the first oil change, your Camry will run for about 400,000 miles!!!
I really dig the smooth gear changes of the Auto Tranny. I like the interior and all that too.
Big car, good on gas, barcelona red, pretty sweet, you should get one.
