2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The Camry Hybrid is a technological marvel enabling more efficient, but safe and comfortable, transportation (reminds me of when CDs replaced records; the hybrid is an ingenious automotive development). The vehicle accelerates well with the combined electric and gas engine. The electric engine works to conserve fuel in all phases of driving (converts kinetic energy to electric). Trunk holds my golf clubs and more. The hybrid is the perfect urban car, thriving on stop-and-go traffic. It is quiet. Relaxed drive. Maintenance on the first 100K miles should be nothing but routine. Drives and looks like a Lexus ES 300, but costs much less. I got a lot of value.
Hybrid system an industry changer! No longer as dependent on the pump. Emissions of the gas engine alone cleaner than Houston air. Relaxing to drive; benefit from stop-and-go traffic. Good acceleration, even from 70mph. JBL stereo & bluetooth (UP upgrade) are great for the $. Leather seats great
The interior is plastic and suede-like on doors & roof; but not a big deal as these are not high wear areas and don't really notice. Little soft in suspension like a Lexus, compared to German sedan, but fine. Can't complain when so much value, reliability and 8 year 100K hybrid component warranty.
