      I bought a new 2019 Toyota Camry SE yesterday. I love the classic shifter as opposed to other
      manufacturers who get fancy with the automatic shifter and you have to learn where the P/R/N/D is located;
      Buttons in Honda are even worse because you can't shift by feel. I don't like Honda's turbo lag, high
      maintenance CVT, noisy interior, and stuckon iPad as the center console.

      I own a 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid and a 2019 Honda Accord Sport 1.5t. Toyota has a better seating position and less road noise. The Honda feels more planted, requiring less effort on curvy, wavy roads, and I prefer its gadget controls. Nissan has a history of being less dependable than the other two and, after a test drive, I decided not to buy it.

      Since I was buying a ~$27,000 midsize car I looked at the Altima, Accord, Camry and Mazda6. Also Subaru Legacy, Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata - but quickly eliminated all but the Accord, Camry and Mazda6 which are reliable and get the best fuel economy configured in their standard 4 cylinder engine. The Altima just didn't make the cut I don't see it as highly reliable and I didn't want a CVT. I bought the 2019 Camry SE because it delivers so much at my price point, reliability, largest engine, best gas mileage, non-turbo, non-CVT. Also it's pretty good looking for a family sedan. After 5 months my biggest complaints are limited visibility to the rear, a low front end that scrapes if you're not careful, too much wind noise and I would like Android Auto (which is being added to the Tundra and Highlander). I heard Apple CarPlay soon will be a $60 upgrade to the 2018 Camry so hope an upgrade to Android Auto can be added in the same manner.

      I just couldn't pick a Nissan over a Honda or Toyota. They are not the same quality they use to be and I feel like the Honda and Toyota are a much more reliable car. So even though it is nice to have the AWD option I would have to think long and hard about that. I think I would go with the Toyota personally.

      Altima and Mazda 6 are my top choices. Camry can be a better car but as a millennial - I want better interiors. Also, Honda makes Accord very expensive as they do not have a full size.

      I'm torn between the Mazda 6 and the Nissan Altima. But, the AWD is a VERY important option to have, especially here in the Northeast. So, I'd go with the Altima.

      I read an early Car&Driver review of the SR trim Altima that measured .91Gs of grip. It has a "sport" tuned suspension supposedly and it would be cool if I could find a comparison of the "sport" trims from Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, and however else. I assume the Accord would win. But I don't recall any other brand recording .91Gs like that specific Altima did. I want to see if it can be duplicated against the rest in the same environment.

      Toyota if you’re listening please release an All Wheel Drive version of the Camry because it would make a lot of sense but only with the V6 Engine models only

      Well I like how Nissan did the screen in between the gauge clusters. I don't like digital gauge clusters either. Another bonus is they offer remote start with all models. Then for me it all comes down to comfort, so I would have to sit in all of them to tell which one I would want.

      I have an Accord EX. Love it. BTW Camry has more hp, but less torque than the Accord. Had Nissans in the past and besides having bad customer service, two of three had some major issues(98 Maxima-timing chain tensioner and 06 Pathfinder-fuel sending unit and a coolant line leak. Xterra had no issues except crappy tires and an underpowered engine).
