2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Great purchase. I have never owned a Hybrid. Very concerned with the transition b/t gas and electric. There is NO discernible transition. Fantastic. It is not going to snap your neck with its acceleration off the line. That is not why you buy this car. It is fun to drive. Does excellent on the Hwy. Feels great in construction zones or traffic as you move along smiling without wasting gas. I find myself learning how to drive it in electric as long as possible. I drive it in "stealth" mode in the neighborhood. My wife just took a 500 mile trip and made it home without fill-up. Technology is awesome. Best car purchase I have ever made! Cuts at least one gas fill-up a month.
Bluetooth (you can read multiple phones in one car.) Navigation. Dashboard (the bright blue diameter on the Speedometer and MPG as you improve your MPG.) MPG read-out (you find yourself driving safer and wiser.) Various displays. Going electric to max out MPG readings. Did I mention Bluetooth?
If Toyota ever develops a V6 Hybrid, everyone in America would buy it! The primary issue with the four cylinder plus 40 HP electric is that it just doesn't have the giddy-up off the line. The center console does slide as it doesn't "lock". Fix that and it is a really strong interior.
