If you're looking at mid-size sedans, you already know that there are plenty of choices available.
You may also know that the Toyota Camry is the sales leader.
The latest Camry, introduced in 2007 alongside the Saturn Aura, has its merits, but also its faults.
There are quality issues with this Toyota; to keep costs down, the interior of this generation of Camry exhibits some inexpensive-looking pieces.
While the sophistication of the Hyundai Sonata has improved dramatically, it is not quite the equal of the Aura.
The Volkswagen Passat is in the same size class and offers a tightly constructed cabin with a great look and feel, but it's due to be replaced by a new car in 2009 or 2010.
