6.0 Okay
Pros:Great rate
Cons:The car smelled of smoke and wasn’t clean. surprised that Toyota Camrys are so uncomfortable. Also all the warning beepings (i.e. seatbelt) were the worst I’ve ever heard: loud and obnoxious. It was a long road trip-will make sure not to get a Camry next time. And this was an upgrade!
