I am buying a new car this year.

I have been looking at the 2015 Camry and the 2015 Accord and both are very *sexy* looking. If I decide to get a 6-cylinder, though, it'll be the Toyota. I'm still worried about the Accord's past problems with that. A gear-head I work with found a class-action against Accord 08-13 where their 6-cylinder engines burned oil and spark-plugs failed because of a design flaw... The cars (6's only) were crap. So much for decades of a flawless rep. What's up with that Honda? I've always loved you! I'm driving an 06 4-cylinder I love right now! Reliability ratings been going down, though. Wah!

I will NOT buy a car with sub-par reliability, though.

I just want to know when these models will finally appear so I can test drive 'em. I drove this year's models. The 14 Camry - I'm sorry, it looks like an egg. Round. Bland. And both car lots are pretty picked over at this point. And why not wait another month and get a 15?

Or is it 4 months?

When will they get here so I can test drive 'em?

I must be an old fogie. I kind of hate the new radios that are actually TV screens and so complicated I'd probably go off the road trying to find a decent radio station that I don't have to PAY for. Back in MY day TV and RADIO were FREE! <mumble grumble>. I mostly play tunes on my Iphone anyway...What's up with the dashboard televisions! Bah. I AM NOT PAYING FOR SIRIUS!

But I always buy new and drive 'em long so I know they've been maintained well, drive 'em till they die...or till my kid needs a college car like now...

So, anyway, where's my new car at? September? October? November?
