2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Our 2007 Camry Hybrid fully loaded is a great car. It has plenty of power when the electric motor kicks in instantly with no hesitation. The ride is very good, outside noise is minimal, all controls are easy to reach, and it is fun to drive. MPG is outstanding averaging 39 MPG during normal driving. 52.7 MPG is the best, but rarely achieved. It is nice to pull up to the gas pump fill up the 17 gallon tank and be able to go 520 miles as shown on the display. The car has more than ampleinterior room, but lacks in the trunk were the battery takes up space. The build is very tight. It takes a little getting use to the engine turning off at stop signs as it runs on the battery power.
The car is preety much all electric. The air conditioning is electric as well as the power steering. It is great during a hot summer to sit with full A/C and the engine not running. We can leave the dog in the car with the A/C running at 65 degrees. The engine will start automatically if needed
The trunk needs to be a little bigger. The battery takes up precious space. Would like to see a plug in aux battery which would allow small trips running on electric only. A company, Hymotion has developed the battery and it needs to be included.
