This morning I had an older Camry wanting to play as I took the back roads to work. There is this one near 90 degree curve on that particular route that I took with relative ease, as I drive that route quite often. The Camry, however, almost ended up in the ditch by going stupid wide on it. Judging by the photos online, it was a 2002 to 2006 model.

So what gives? Are Camry's really that bad at handling, is the suspension shot, or did that driver truly suck?

I dunno man. Have you seen the TRD camry and avalons? They look pretty cool. Supposed to have some stiff suspension and what not.

My first ever car (in high school, mind you) was a 1996 Camry with 200k+ miles on it. Can confirm that they handle like hot garbage, especially with old suspension. Driver probably also sucked!

Got to have a little fun with a last gen Mazdaspeed 3 on the way home from class the other day. Went from a 40 and he was neck and neck until he had to shift, and I pulled away after that. DSG saves the day lol. Not sure if anything was done to it or not, but was a pretty good run.

Had a 4.0L V6 Mustang want to run me from a 40 and just for the sake of wiping the smirk off his face I ran him and had a bus length by the top of third lol

If you’re doing the work yourself it should be under $5k for clutch and K04. There’s a bnib apr k04 with software for $2400 in the classified section.

Ran a new ctsv from about 30 to 90. He was slowly pulling on me, my bumper was at the middle of his car. Afyer we ran got caught at a light and he asked me if I was turbo charged. LOL, naw man it's just a real stout NA. I dont think I would have beat him obviously but I did feel good putting up a fight. I'm ko4 MT with supporting mods.

Haha itís a dsg I regret my decision all the time but then I sit in traffic to and from work and remember why I got the automatic initially. Itís still a fun car but I am beginning to miss shifting gears myself

I had a Mk6 Jetta 2.5 L trying to race me on the highway yesterday........At first, he was somewhat keeping pace, but once I found open space to go full bore, it wasnít even close........

Also just hit 104k this morning..... Iíve had unitronic S1+ since 42k and itís been very solid.I plan on keeping this car indefinitely(fingers crossed I wonít have major issues soon)
