What's the used Toyota Camry saloon like?

Look past the fact that the Camry has none of the image or prestige of almost any other car in the executive class and there's a huge bargain to be had for canny used buyers.

It also comes loaded to the gills with luxury goodies, especially the 3.0 V6 model. However, what that model doesn't have much in the way of is performance, because it's better suited to relaxed cruising. The 2.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine - the only alternative - is quite happy to rev hard, but it becomes a bit too noisy for comfort when it does. There are Sport versions of the Camry, but the firmer suspension does little to cure the car's tendency to lean in corners and it also causes more lumps and bumps to be felt in the cabin.
