2012 Toyota Camry
2012 Toyota Camry
For two decades, the Toyota Camry was virtually unchallenged for the title of America's favorite mid-size sedan, but that era is over. Barbarians are at the gate armed with better styling, newer technology, and superior fuel economy. The 2012 Camry intends to turn them back with an all-new design and thoroughly revised mechanicals. The transformation is most readily apparent inside, where the hard, tan plastics have given way to stitched leather and chrome accents. The new exterior design still plays to conservative tastes but is no longer bland. Unlike some of its newest competitors, the Camry still offers a V-6. The familiar 3.5-liter engine, despite mild fuel economy gains, gives up 4 mpg on the highway to the Hyundai Sonata's more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The six is still worth considering, though, as it's perhaps the smoothest engine in the segment. The four-cylinder and hybrid powertrains both post gains as well, with the Hybrid likely to achieve an impressive 41 mpg combined. We're most surprised--and pleasantly so--by how the new Camry drives, particularly the Hybrid. The soupy handling, artificial steering, bouncy ride, grabby brakes, and clumsy throttle response we complained about have all vanished without a trace. The electric power steering (now fitted to all Camrys) is precise and almost natural, the brake pedal feels as good as any hybrid's, and the suspension tuning is nothing short of a revelation. The top-level SE serves up surprisingly balanced handling from its firmer suspension and heavier steering.
Family Sedan Spread
Welcome to Automobile Magazine's Midsize Madness, our comparison test of the kind of car you see on American roads every day, the midsize sedan.
2013 Toyota Camry SE Left Front
Proving consistency is key when it comes to the midsize sedan sales race, the top three performers from the past two months were again on top in November. Not surprisingly, the Toyota Camry still occupies the number-one spot, with the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima relegated to second and third place, respectively. The Hyundai Sonata’s sales were good enough to make it the fourth best-selling midsizer, while the new Ford Fusion made a slight comeback landing in fifth place.     
2013 Ford F150 Lariat Front Left View
The Ford F-Series is getting comfortable at the top of the U.S. sales charts -- in October, it finished way ahead of the crowd with 56,497 units sold (including F-150 and Super Duty). Although the Toyota Camry outsold the Chevy Silverado in year-to-date sales, the bow-tie branded truck was more popular in October, selling 38,739 units compared to the 29,926 Camrys sold. The Honda Accord, on the other hand, couldn't beat it with 28,349 units.
2012 Toyota Camry SE Left Side View
The view from the top continues to look really, really good: top executives at Toyota Motor Sales says the number-one-selling Toyota Camry mid-size sedan is poised to sell over 400,000 units this year, returning to its former glory and taking the top passenger car spot for the eleventh year in a row. We've been reporting for months on how the Toyota Camry has pulled out a sometimes-thin but never-beatable lead in the mid-size market; Toyota sold 314,788 Camrys through the end of September, more than it sold in all of last year. The only thing with an engine and four wheels that outsells the Camry is the mighty Ford F-Series pickup, which had a ridiculous 150,000-unit lead on the Camry at the beginning of this month. It's poised to take the crown of the top-selling motorized vehicle sold in the U.S. (It's unclear whether or not the Little Tykes Cozy Coupe will eke out a win as the top-selling "car.") With a couple of months left in 2012, Automotive News reports that Toyota is calling the race: the Camry will win the prize in 2012, beating the Honda Accord (247,847 through 10/1) and Nissan Altima (234,040). On top of that, Toyota says that the Camry is headed to a 400,000-plus-unit year, the first since 2008. It's been a rough and complex couple of years for the Toyota Camry: its 2012 redesign almost completely coincided with a pair of natural disasters in Japan and southeast Asia, stretching supplies thin. Thankfully for Toyota, the tsunami and floods all but knocked out the Camry's main challenger, the Honda Accord, but Nissan's Altima--which wasn't new and wasn't as effected by the weather--pulled out a convincing second-place finish for most of 2012. With the Altima's supplies now stretched thanks to a redesigned model, the Accord is back, but that car is also in the middle of a transition. With Honda claiming that the 2013 Accord represents the majority of Accord sales in October (meaning that the transition period is nearly over), the two Japanese challengers will once again duke it out in a battle that will probably intensify in 2013. What say you--is the Toyota Camry's win a deserved one? Will the new 2013 Accord or the wild-looking 2013 Ford Fusion knock the king off its perch next year?

Summary
Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain models interspersed through model years 2009 through 2013 as follows: model year 2009-2012 Tacoma, 4Runner, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius, and RAV4; model year 2009-2010 Avalon, FJ Cruiser, and Highlander Hybrid; model year 2010-2013 model year Corolla, Sienna and Tundra; model year 2009-2013 Highlander and Venza; model year 2012 Prius V; and model year 2010-2012 Sequoia. During modification by SET to include accessories such as leather seat covers, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems, these vehicles may not have had the passenger seat occupant sensing system calibration tested. Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed.
Consequences
If the front passenger seat occupant sensing system is out of calibration, the front passenger airbags may not deploy or they may deploy inappropriately for the passenger's size and position. This could increase the risk of personal injury during the event of a vehicle crash necessitating airbag deployment.
Remedy
Southeast Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors, and recalibrate them as necessary. The recall began on March 21, 2013. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.

Component
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Avalon, Avalon HV, Venza, Camry, and Camry HV vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the drain hose for the air conditioning condenser may become clogged causing water to accumulate at the bottom of the air conditioning condenser unit housing. The accumulated water may then leak through a seam in the housing onto the air bag control module potentially resulting in a short circuit of the module.
Consequences
A short circuit may cause the air bags to become disabled or inadvertently deploy. An inadvertent airbag deployment can increase the risk of injury or the possibility of a crash. An inoperative airbag can increase the risk of injury in a severe crash. The power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort and can increase the risk of a crash at low speeds.
Remedy
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser unit housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module, free of charge. The recall began on February 5, 2014. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
