    Ironically they were bitching, because I was driving my own Acura and I was running up a huge bill on my gas card so what do they give me? A V6 Camry. You'd think they'd give me a 4cyl or a Hybrid :dunno:

    And in the 40 miles I have put on it so far, there is nothing good to say about this car, I can see how it appeals to elderly people and families, I am not going to enjoy driving this thing around. Only bonus is that it is the 3.5 V6 w/ 6 speed auto. Doesn't really feel like 268 HP. And the suspension on this thing sucks big time, way too soft. I bottomed the thing out on the speed bumps in our parking lot going slow.

    Oh well, if they got the budget to waste why the fuck not. I guess I could have gotten stuck in A LOT worse.

    You'd think on a V6 model it would have Alloy wheels instead of steelies :dunno:

    And I thought black people were the only ones that complain, even when they get things for free

    They're nice cars, but not interesting.

    Might be more entertaining with the sport package.

    I was fine putting the miles on my own vehicle, I hadn't put much on it to begin with and I was going to sell it this summer anyways.

    Why would you be fine putting the miles on your own car? They were only paying for your gas. What about wear & tear?

    The SE handles a lot better...but you're right about the engine. Use premium and i've heard the lag gets a little better, but it just doesn't seem to pull until 5k+ RPMs.
