I'm close to making a decision on a new car. I want to get a great value but a nice car. I would love to get maybe a BMW, Lexus, or Acura TL, but they just seem a little too impractical for me at this point (expensive). I was looking at the Camry and the Accord and it seems the Camry is a winner, especially the 04 and 05 models. I just want to get some opinions about the Camry from those of you that know a lot about them and maybe own one. We looked at them the other day and saw an 04 Camry SE that we liked a lot. The SE doesn't seem to be very popular though and I wanted to know why. I always see the LE and XLE around and I have a friend that got a fully loaded XLE and he's very happy with it. I kinda like the SE the best so far but I wish it came with leather seats. The one we looked at was an 04 demo (managers drove it around town as advertisement). It has 6000 miles on it but is very nice. What would a good price for this car be. I may make an offer on it. I wanted to also ask what the main differences are between the 04's and 05's. I also heard the 4 cyl engine is more reliable than the V6 and easier to do work on... is this true? Is the SE a good choice?
