2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I had a 2002 Avalon and was thinking of buying a new 2008 when I looked at the Camry Hybrid. The trunk is the only really comedown, after owning one for 3 months now, it's the best car I have ever had. Quiet, roomy & comfortable, stylist, 37-40 mpg, and a lot of creature comforts. You won't be disappointed.


Best Features

Seamless transition back and forth from battery power to engine power. Navigation system, while not perfect, is very very nice.


Worst Features

Temperature display should be moved from the window with mileage up to the dash next to the clock. Telescoping steering wheel should extend more toward the seat than it does.

Review

I thank my wife every day for letting me have this car. I was looking at an Audi A6 and S4 but the cost point was too much. I found this one on of a dealer's lot as the year previous demo. Great price for a great product. I love this car. I am averaging 35 - 38 MPG right now on a mix of highway and city driving, heavier traffic in my city during rush hour. I highly recommend this vehicle for those that want a classy edge with cost savings in mind.


Best Features

MPG and getting the excellent rating. Leather and the nav are nice extras just have no clue how to use it.


Worst Features

Traffic flow info on the nav. Voice activation for full hands off control for all features.

Review

I have had my 2008 TCH with nav system for 4 months and have driven 5000 miles. My previous two vehicles were BMWs, and I made the tough decision to buy a more practical car with better fuel economy. Overall, I am happy with my decision!! I chose the loaded version, with leather seats, moonroof, nav system, bluetooth, and all other available upgrades. Feature-wise, this car is able to compete well with "premium" vehicles. Ride quality and quietness are excellent. Fuel economy is a big improvement over my previous vehicles. I have not yet modified my driving style, and get 30- 35 mpg in the city and 35-40 mpg on the highway (at 70-80mph). With a little effort, those can be improved further.


Best Features

Fuel economy. Constant feedback on fuel economy / driving habits. Integrated satellite radio, auxiliary jack, navigation system, CD changer, bluetooth. Good factory sound system. Smart key system. Comfortable. Quiet ride.


Worst Features

Backup camera or parking assistance system. Larger trunk. Integrated iPod controls. Ventilated seats. Traffic info integrated into nav system (The last three are from my dream list, not actual necessities)

Review

This is my first Camry and second Toyota. My wife and I are loving it. I travel apx 120 miles a day. I am currently avg 40 miles per gallon. This is great with the gas prices rising.


Best Features

All of them!!!


Worst Features

The navigation system is not worth the money.

Review

Excellent everything! After more than 1 year, I still don't have a complaint! Go for the heated leather seats and the navigation!


Best Features

Car switches to "electric" mode & recharges batteries automatically. Navi system is very helpful.


Worst Features

More horsepower would be great. However, I would rather have an AVERAGE of 38.5 mpg than the horses any day!
