2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The 2009 Camry hybrid is my first Toyota. It drives like my old BMW 528i, and has decent acceleration but not mind blowing speed. The economics of having a hybrid are the selling point. If you think gas will hit 5 $/gallon and you drive a lot, then this is a car for you. The looks are those of a non snobby Camry, so you won't feel guilty like in a new Mercedes. It seems to me the workmanship is the same as a German car. I tried the Matrix and found that it was more flimsy, and not worth the price.
Navigation system, and voice activation are nice. however the blue tooth antenna is very weak, and that make it difficult to use at times.
Have a more potent blue tooth antenna in the car. Have better blue tooth link with the phone. Have easier access for MP3 player. And add the 120 volt plug to plug in standard home electric equipment. If the matrix can have a 120 volt plug, then a Camry should also.
