Comfortable Car, but Poor Initial Quality
By dcsj on
2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This is a very comfortable car to drive, and it gets terrific gas mileage, but initial quality is unacceptable.
I have had this car for 3 months, and it has been back to the shop 5 times.
Defective speaker diagnosed on 1st visit, replaced on 2nd visit.
Sunroof side garnish came loose and smeared grease on window.
Garnish re-attached on 3rd visit.
Missing rear seat belt buckle replaced on 4th visit. Functionality problem with JBL premium sound system (complicated) diagnosed on 5th visit.
Toyota asked me to bring it in at a later date.
Vertical grease smear on right rear power window (undiagnosed) to be addressed on 6th visit along with the radio.
gas mileage, quiet operation, smooth ride, good performance for a hybrid, keyless entry, blind spot monitor, sound system - when it works, navigation
30-minute replay buffer on the radio (like my old XM SkyFi receiver
