2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Great ride, quiet interior, great gas mileage. I went from a Ford F150 to the Camry for the gas mileage. Wow what a great car. The seats are very comfortable which also wrap around you. I am adding Sirius radio which is on order now. I am getting quite a few inquires from my coworkers on the gas mileage and power. I tell them my first tank right now is around 35 mpg and the car also has great pickup.


Favorite Features

Seats, Bluetooth, gas mileage, ride and comfort.


Suggested Improvements

None at this time. All in all it is a great car.

2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I traded in a 4Runner on the Camry Hybrid. I went from 15 MPG to 38.6 MPG I drove from the DC area to Johnstown, PA over the weekend. The trip is about 220 miles one way going up and down mountains and cruising up there at the speed limit +5 on cruise control I got 38.6 MPG. I got a red Camry with every bell and whistle. The nav system is OK. Most of what it tells you is on road signs: "exit 38 is 1/2 mile on the left" sort of thing.


Favorite Features

Keyless entry and ignition,comfortable seating, dual climate control.


Suggested Improvements

Trunk space could be larger since the batteries cut into present trunk space.

2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

This car is both luxurious and economical. The driving experience is quiet and soothing. I do a lot of highway driving and it's just what the doctor ordered. The brakes are especially impressive, but the gas mileage is probably the best part. The gas mileage feedback system really helps you drive more economically.


Favorite Features

Integrated phone/navigation screen and speakers; fuel economy; driver's seat comfort; ESC; quiet ride.


Suggested Improvements

Update that navigation DVD!

2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Wow, what a car. The 09 is slightly bigger then the 08 which enlarged the trunk somewhat. It is one good looking auto. Electric motor battery is relatively small and is attached under the rear window shelf. Love the keyless system--when you carry the fob it knows it's you and unlocks the door as you approach. Push button start is very futuristic and fun. Gas mileage is great. My first tank in town averaged 33 mpg. On level road at 65 mph the fuel consumption stayed steady at 45 mpg. Continuous mpg display replaces the tachometer. The ride is solid and smooth and the car handles great. Good power as the electric motor supplements the gas engine when needed.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage; appearance inside and out; smoothness of transition from electric motor to engine and back; "no shift" transmission; seat comfort; roominess; the word "hybrid" on the side of the car


Suggested Improvements

A slight whine in the transmission when stopping; some shudder when the engine starts and takes over the drive. Can't notice the transition if the engine's idling prior.

2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

It's not overly responsive but quick and friendly, fun. Small turning circle very easy to manage down the road. No real issues looks great. I find myself trying to manage great mileage numbers and therefor it slows down my driving a tad. No lack of acceleration.


Favorite Features

7 air bags, iPod hook-up, stability control, heated seats. Don't feel like I'm giving up safety or comfort for mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Would be nice if the trunk had better access to the back seat for those times when I need to increase the cargo space. Not a larger trunk just better accessability to join the rear seat and trunk.

Review

Excellent car on the road. Seems to float on the highways, but you are always in control. Mostly in town driving, averaging 38 MPG. On board display is good. Calculates your MPG and informs you of how many miles you can drive before fill-up. The electric motor can't be heard when you are at a stop light,stepping on the gas pedal engages the gas engine which provides seemless acceleration. When you approach a stop sign and slow down, you can hear a little transmission whine. Great hybrid car.


Favorite Features

It's the hybrid system itself. No need to charge the system, just put gas in tank every 600 or so miles. The push button start and door/trunk lock/unlock sensors are the future, no buttons to push or keys required.


Suggested Improvements

Trunk could be bigger.
