  12. Is it worth buying the new Camry now?

    Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    Hi all! Looking forward to trading in my 2007 Camry SE for a 2018-2019 Camry LE with the least tech jumbo on it. I've read about small transmission issues with the new 8-speed that they've implemented. Are those fixed with the updated 2019 model? Or should I wait for a 2020 one? As many on this...

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    So I just stumbled across a 1MZ-FE (I'm trying to be vague on purpose) in a junkyard with 5 speed bolted on to it. 100% stock.
