Toyota Camry is Anonymity at its Finest – Just ask the Lunds.

Posted in General, Honda, Toyota, Videos by MrAngry | September 17th, 2010 | 6 Responses |

Back in 2006 I had some sort of mental flash that said I needed to go out and become an adult. At the time I was driving around in a 2001 BMW E39 M5, a car that was great, but one that also at a certain point began to nickel and dime me to death. So for that reason I decided to do the grown up thing and sell my BMW and go out and buy a brand new 2006 Honda Accord. It was a great car that did absolutely everything right except for one crucial detail. It was boring as F*CK! Every time I got in that car I felt like I was stepping into an adult diaper. I felt as though I was over the hill and needed to relegate myself to a white picket fence in a suburban neighborhood. In short the Accord sucked the life out of me every time I got into it. I bring this up because that’s exactly how I felt when I viewed the above Toyota Camry commercial. Honestly, I sincerely hope the Lund family are a bunch of people that hang from the chandeliers in the bedroom, but alas I feel that these Camry’s have sucked the life out of them, the same way that my old Accord tried to suck the life out of me.

    LOL at your story mate! At least the Accord is a little better to drive than the camry right. Why didn’t you get a rear wheel drive in 2006, I’m sure a 350z didn’t cost much more than a top of the line accord.

    I. Hate. Camries. I think Jeremy Clarkson said it best, “Whenever I’m suffering from Insomnia, I just look at a picture of a Toyota Camry and I’m straight off.” The designers should be hung for continually making the single most dull car in existence. Even Honda can mix it up with some very interesting and inspiring designs.

    The only reason you should drive a Camry is because it’s all you can afford. And even then, I’d rather ride a moped.

    “Adult diaper” – that’s priceless. I’m definitely not into Camrys and I believe a certain type of driver buys a Camry, but I think Toyota did a good job with the commercials. Hearing personal accounts straight from repeat buyers seems pretty convincing, and particularly suitable for family cars.

    I prefer the Motortrend’s description for Camry: “Walmart family car”, which is exactly the market the Camry is targeted. Nothing wrong with that — but don’t expect me to ever own one of those.
