I was thinking of trading in my 2012 Camry L in mint condition with 25K for the new 2018 LE model. Any opinions?

The 2018s are really nice. I was thinking of trading in my 2015 for one.

What are you after? Nicer wheels, better options, better 0-60, ....?

I mean, I have an '11 Camry with way more miles which I have no good reason to get rid of--so I'm not sure why you'd want to trade. Other than being bored with the Camry--which is not surprising--but why you'd then want to trade into yet another Camry... not sure why.

Why are you stuck on the Camry? Especially since you obviously don't keep them for 20 years / 200k miles? The Honda Accord and Mazda6 are better choices. IMHO that spaceship-looking dash is horrid.

Take a look at the forum on Toyota Nation about the 2018 Camry. Lot of in information on the site. There are a few issues with the new Camry.

OP has owned the car for 5-6 years. He doesn't need a reason to trade it. Agree with yearly miles that low he could look at most anything and never have a problem before the next trade. Someone will be getting a great used car..

Your 2012 will likely still be running when a 2018 is in the junk yard.

No, not really. The Camry ranks number one followed by the Legacy and Optima. I forget where the Mazda 6 falls, maybe 4th in the CR Buying Guide. The Accord didn't make the list since a new one wasn't available. All cars that fall into this segment are on their "Recommended" list. Except for one, the Malibu.

And then the OP could be a Beta Tester for new-for-2018 cylinder deactivation on the Skyactiv-G. First time on a 4 cylinder engine here: what could go wrong?

How sad that Consumer Reports is your only reference for car reviews.
