When I first saw the new grille design on one of the new Camry's in the parking lot at work, I first thought that he had lost the lower part of the grille, and then I went to the toyota dealer for an oil change and realized it was the design...
It seems like there's too many different design styles going on. The parking lights down near the fog lights reminds me of the Cadillac CTS, the giant "hole" under the grille reminds me of an Aston Martin, and the back kind of reminds me of a jaguar. Personally, I liked the old designs better and this one just seems like they picked the parts that they liked off of other cars and called it a "new design". And I really, really, really, REALLY hate the new "pointy" mirror style.
Even the new Camry has been a huge letdown, in my opinion. I rented a 4-cyl camry and the thing was constantly hunting for the correct gear driving the 73 toll roads in California, to the point I had to manually shift using the sportronic shifter (or whatever toyota calls it).
I'm definitely passing on any new Toyota until they fix some of these issues...
And BTW, these reviews are completely useless. They overhype on the small stuff and overlook the major issues...
