Let’s Go Places
2015 Toyota Camry
We live in the suburbs and driving to the city is always an adventure. Since we are moving soon, we’ve been going to the city and visiting our favorite places. The folks from Toyota offered Sugar a car for a memorable City of Chicago adventure. They sent a celestial silver metallic 2015 Toyota Camry for us to take Sugar places in the city.
An interesting Toyota Camry fact from Wikipedia, the word “Camry”, an Anglicized phonetic transcription of the Japanese word kanmuri, means ”crown”. I guess it is safe to equate that Toyota Camry is a “royalty” for being the best selling car.
According to 24/7 Wall St, Toyota Camry Remains America’s Best Selling Car. Why? Toyota has a good reputation for producing quality cars.
Here ere are two Toyota testimonials from two blog friends:
“We are Toyota owners for 8 years and love both our vehicles. Their overall performance on the road is superb and their interior is stylish, yet spacious and comfortable for the extended road travel.”
from Oz the Terrier dog parents, Gina & Eduardo
“A year ago, my father purchased a Toyota Avalon for us to drive. He bought a Toyota because he knows that they are good cars that last a long time. The Toyota we drive is several years old, but still in great condition. It’s one of the nicest cars I’ve ever driven.”
from Ann, Pawsitively Pet, dog parent to Shiner
As mentioned in our previous car review, I prefer driving a car. The 2015 Toyota Camry definitely made my driving experience with Sugar fun and comfortable. Here are 5 Reasons Why Toyota Camry is A Suitable Car to Take Your Dog to Places.
Toyota Camry is A Suitable Car to Take Your Dog to Places
1. Design: Toyota Camry has a bolder but elegant design and can definitely add a style to your personality as a dog parent. During our trip to the city (and photo shoot), many were surprised it was a Toyota car. Sugar enjoyed extra petting from people who checked out the exterior and interior of the Camry. The color, celestial silver metallic, added sparks to the design. However, the light colored leather seat interior is not suitable for a dog owner. We recommend to choose a darker color and/or use a dog seat cover. Lastly, Toyota has invested in sound deadening throughout the car. A noticeable quieter ride made our driving experience more enjoyable.
2. Comfort: I am all about comfort especially if I’m going to spend a lot of time behind the wheel. The driver seat is comfortable and perfectly adjusted to my comfort. My comfort equates to my dog’s (Sugar’s) safety and comfort too. The backseat is spacious, and surprising have good headroom (for 6-footers). Due to the abundant space your, dog will not feel claustrophobic.
Keep in mind the Toyota Camry might not be suitable for other large dogs. Sugar weights ~54lbs and she took most of the back seat space. The Camry is adequate for dogs under 55 lbs dogs.
3. Performance: Toyota Camry will turn your driving into pure excitement; Golden Excitement. The Camry performed very well on the road as it’s designed to thrill. It made our ride powerful but smooth. Sugar felt her car rides were relaxing; she fell asleep.
4. Technology Safety: Toyota Camry offers several advanced safety equipment. I’m amazed on Camry’s intuitive dashboard system controls and its blind spot monitoring system. The Camry has a rating of 9.3 safety rating. Of course, the safety of your driving experience with your dog starts from you. Make sure to buckle-up your dog.
5. Economical: Toyota Camry is #2 as an affordable mid-size car. Camry is also a Finalist for the 2015 Best Midsize Car for the Money. The money you save can be used for your dog’s care expenses.
Overall, I had a wonderful time driving the Toyota Camry and Sugar had delightful car rides. We don’t want to bore you with all the specs and technical detail of the 2015 Toyota Camry. We invite you to visit Toyota.com and read more bout the Camry and other Toyota vehicle. Below is a great video from Kelly Book; known as a trusted resource for new car reviews.

Beautiful looking car – what a great way to travel around town.

Oh Sugar, I am so glad you enjoyed going places in your Toyota Camry! We have never driven the Camry – Ma drives the RAV4 and daddy-dog drives the Tundra. The Tundra is HUGE so there is plenty of room for the 3 of us, Uncle Robbie and all our camping equipment! They also use the Tundra to haul their tools when they volunteer at Habitat for Humanity. Ma loves her RAV4 because it is roomy enough to take us all on adventures but it is small enough for her to feel comfortable driving it. We say “Oh What a Feeling” when we “Go Places” in our Toyotas!
Rachel Sheppard says
We had a Camry for a long time and we loved it!
Tiffany's Diamond Dogs says
They should have sent you a chauffeur too Sugar 😉 That’s super pawesome though and looks like a nice way to explore town
Reilly & Denny says
We have never owned a Toyota car but we figure that any car that takes us places is a good car

I’m glad you enjoyed your Toyota Camry — it’s a snazzy-lookin’ vehicle!
Way back in the 80s and early 90s — before my current girls were even a sparkle in my eyes — I had a Toyota Corolla (’84) and I loved it. It got me where I wanted to go, etc; but as it got older, it couldn’t handle the load any more. I needed a vehicle that could handle dozens of cases of soda and crates of snacks on a daily basis. I ended up with a Chevy Astro, and I’ve stayed with Chevy ever since. I don’t dispute that Toyotas are good cars — my Corolla wouldn’t have lasted 13 years for me and another X number of years for the kid who bought it from our Chevy dealer if they weren’t. I just prefer Chevys.
But now I’m confused. I thought y’all moved to Southern California permanently this past winter. Are you moving again?

I love driving the Avalon. Even though it’s not brand new, it’s a really nice car. My dad has always driven trucks, because he uses them for work. I think he decided to buy the Avalon because my cars are not the best and he was getting tired of driving trucks all the time. It’s my favorite car to drive. Sugar weighs the same as Shiner does. Ours has leather seats too, but I have a new car seat for the back when I need it.

Sugar my peeps love their Toyota Highlander. It has a lot of bells and whistles that they are still learning to work. It is very comfy and quiet too. Except when they put me in it for a trip to the vet! Mol
Madi your bffff
Earl Lover says
My dad has a Toyota van. A very nice van it is!
We take our dogs everywhere we go in our Skoda Fabia. It does the job!
