In case you weren't aware, the 2012 Toyota Camry was recently reviewed by the experts at Consumer Reports, and to say that it fared well against their harsh critiquing process would be a real understatement. In fact, the latest redesign of the lauded mid-size sedan even drove off with the company's coveted "recommended" designation.
We know what you're thinking. This is just another accolade to add to the ever-growing list that the Camry owns, right? Well, this one is a bit special. As we mentioned, the reviewers at consumer Reports are notorious for their no-nonsense approach to reviewing products. They aim to the be one and only stop that car buyers make when considering their next vehicle, and they employ more than a few tactics to ensure it.
First, the company accepts absolutely no advertising dollars from any company whatsoever. That means that automakers who want to hide their shortcomings can't simply buy a good review if they want to. Furthermore, Consumer Reports also manages to avoid any special treatment that they might otherwise receive by buying each vehicle that they review anonymously. This way, they can also be sure that they're receiving the same vehicle that any normal customer would drive off in.
Overall, these factors work to produce a solid review that leaves no nook or cranny unchecked. And while this would be bad news for any other automaker that might not have brought their A game, we all know that Toyota isn't merely any automaker. In their review, the Consumer Reports critic noted that "The Camry has a nicer interior, more responsive handling, and better fuel economy than before."1
