I miss my Tacoma already...

Had to sell my truck today. Brought a tear to my eye when I got rid of it. With the current job, an 80 mile (all highway) round trip to work 6 days a week was killing me on gas. I got an amazing deal on a 2012 Camry SE off the showroom floor. $35,000 MSRP Fully Loaded, with literally every option for an even trade. I even got a 6yr/100,000k bumper to bumper warranty. The dealership really wanted my truck...

Ill still miss the truck, it has a spot in my heart...but here's the new one...

Whoa, even trade... It sucks you had to let go of your Tacoma but enjoy the MPG's, especially with that mileage per week. Don't wander to far away from TW.

Yeah, It was Royal Palm. Vincent or "Vinny"was the salesman. He isn't the most knowledgeable person on the car itself, but he can be persuaded to make a deal. They have a black one just like mine on the lot at the moment. I think it was even like 500 cheaper because it had a different brand of tires on it...PM me and I can get you his number. if you're interested...

It was basically an even trade. I have $10 cheaper payments for the same amount of time I had remaining on my Taco...and I have 45 days to make the first payment, where I would have had to make the truck payment on the 6th.

Do you have Entune on the Camry? Is it the "premium" version that measures tire pressure, etc.?

Yes, It does have Entune. Really nice, only complaint is that Pandora sounds better streaming through the iPhone and into Bluetooth than via Entune.

It is the premium version, and I can see individual tire pressures of all tires.
