The Toyota Camry was American’s best-selling car last month. The Camry is maintaining its position for being the most popular car because of its good reputation for quality, according to 24/7 Wall St. It is no wonder the name “Camry” means “crown.” Therefore, it is safe to say that the Toyota Camry is royalty when it comes to mid-sized sedans.

The Camry is the most popular car on the market, with nearly 429,000 cars sold in 2014. Even so, Toyota had to struggle to push Camry sales higher this year. Sales for the first four months were up 1.7 percent, reaching 134,571 cars sold, according to Motor Intelligence. April sales fell 10.4 percent from the same month last year to 34,066.

Toyota’s top ranking in consumer research on car quality is a strong factor in car buyer’s decisions. In the new 2015 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, Toyota has been at the top or near the top for decades. Right now, Toyota ranks third among all brands, behind its own Lexus luxury division and Buick.

Toyota’s reputation is critical to its success. It gets 35 mpg in highway driving, in part due to its small 2.5 liter, four-cylinder engine.

Toyota has a new lineup of 2015 Camry models. Everything has been redesigned except for the roof, engines, and transmissions.

The Toyota Camry has been around since 1983. Since that time, the Camry has gone on to dominate the mid-size family sedan market. Consumers love the Camry for its high quality, comfortable ride, and impressive durability. It is also within the average person’s budget.

New or used, the Camry comes highly recommended by car dealers and owners of the Toyota Camry. Whether people choose the L, LE, SE, SE Sport, or XLE, they will enjoy the comfortable, quiet, and smooth ride. People who own a Toyota have stated they have seen the odometer reach over 200,000 miles without any major problems. This is one of the reasons Toyota Camry has remained popular with buyers over the last two decades.

Do you own a Toyota Camry or know someone who does? If you own a Camry, would you recommend it to others?
