Talking Camry still best selling car

..and I love my 8 year old Camry...still runs like a top!

Camry best selling car story

Cars: Best of the best, 2007
These are the models that rose to the top in nine different areas. One is tops in three of them.
By Peter Valdes-Dapena, CNNMoney.com staff writer



Best-selling car
Toyota Camry
Ho-hum. Seems like the same thing every year. Camry, Camry, Camry, Camry, Camry. They make 'em, we buy 'em.
It just shows what you get by sticking to the basics. The Camry succeeds, year after year after year, by being a consistently good, reliable car. In its most recent redesign, Toyota added some slightly edgy styling to both the interior and exterior but it's still the good old Camry.

Detroit is fighting back with some quite good cars of their own - the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu - but it seems unlikely that the Camry will be dethroned any time soon.

Car buyers have long memories and the Camry's virtues - and Detroit's past sins - will likely earn Toyota repeat buyers for many more years.

I think the Malibu is going to do well for GM.
It is a good looking car.
My wife thought about buying one.....they are almost impossible to get now....too much demand

Hell would have to freeze over and Scottie would have to become a heterosexual before I ever decided to buy one.

Kinda makes the big 3 (or is it 2?) talking heads sound even more retarded as they keep repeating year after year how "customers want more new content" and "more gadgets" etc. etc. Build a solid vehicle, price it accordingly, leave it alone. Thanks Terdyota for making us look stupid again.




to add: case in point Ford ranger, best selling compact pickup for what 20 years? And with VERY few changes. That is until the price went to $17k for a base model. Suddenly noone wants to buy them anymore. silly ford

Screw Toyota. I bought a 2007 Malibu SS last April for my wife. She loves the car, and it kicks some serious butt when ya stomp on it. Plus it gets almost 30mpg on the highway.
