Vehicle2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewI test drove this before I drove the standard gas powered 4 cylinder Camry. Took them both out on the highway and drove them similarly, accelerating heavily at 60 mph until I reached 80. The Hybrid was impressive and just as quick (if not slightly quicker) than its non-hybrid brother. The interior is very quiet and a little eerie at traffic lights and when you first start the car. Were it not for the "Ready" light when starting, you would not know it was running until the electric motor kicks in. (A note for the ladies...those hot summer days that you want to adjust your hair and make-up will cost you virtually nothing while you enjoy the A/C.)
Best FeaturesMost amenities (A/C, radio controls, dash display mode) are accessible from the steering wheel. There is an economy mode than can be used when cruising on the highway causing you to realize even greater mileage before that inevitable pit stop at the pump.
Worst FeaturesThe brakes do have a tendency to grab. With a little training, you can learn to back off when applying them but there is a definite learning curve involved.
