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


Review

Very happy. Ride is equal to many caddys we have owned. Plenty of room and many nice features.


Best Features

Everything.


Worst Features

Able to make changes in the navigation system at any speed. We cannot change any settings in the nav. beyond the speed of 5mph. If we have to make any changes in nav. we have to pull over and stop.

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


Review

Can't go wrong with a Toyota! I have had my Camry now for 2 months now. I have 6,000 miles so far and wish I had more time to drive it. I wasn't sure if I could go from an SUV to a car, but it was easy to do. This car is a dream. At first I didn't think it was getting all that good gas mileage at around 30 mpg, but now I get around 36.8 mpg @ 72ish on the highway, and in town 37 to up to 42 mpg. Has been my avg for the last 4,000 miles or so. Just buy one you will not look back and say I wish I had looked at that other car first, after you own your Camry hybird, you will wish you had gone green sooner!


Best Features

Great gas mileage! Ride, nav is easy to use and understand, the sound system is great for stock. Leather seats are firm yet soft.


Worst Features

Fog lights. HID. And lights on the window switches front and back. Lighted entry like the ES 350. But that is if you wanna get really picky, all easy to fix on your own.

Review

I needed to replace my 2000 Grand Am for daily travel to work. Because of the rising gas prices I wanted to look at a hybrid. I chose the 2008 Camry because of the incentives Toyota was offering, Toyota's reliability, and because I was really impressed with the design of the car (internal and external. I also have a 2 year old daughter and the Camry is one of the safest cars on the road. After driving the car for a couple weeks I know I made an excellent decision.


Best Features

The car is extremely quiet. Its ride is very smooth. Most of all I love all the gadgets: built in bluetooth, all controls (phone, radio, climate control) available on steering wheel, etc.


Worst Features

Increased performance, but not at expense of engine efficiency.

Review

Prior to buying this car we had 2 SUVs that we probably put 12 -15k per year on each, averaging 13 mpg. We bought this car to be a shared resource to offload mileage from both cars. THe goal: fun, sporty and comfortably seat our family (accomplished on all). We all love the car. Sitting in the back with 2 kids, I find it to be comfortable. THe car has plenty of zip. For us, the only bad thing is, we are a family of 6. So when we all need to ride (20% of the time), we need to hop back into the SUV.


Best Features

The gas consumption screen does a great job at helping you figure out how to get the most output from your vehicle.


Worst Features

Lots of feature to access via the screen menu. Perhaps there is a way to make it more intuitive. But if the only problem is the car is too feature rich. Still a pretty good problem. Features are good.

Review

The Camry Hybrid is a good car, it's our second hybrid. Our first was the Prius. Sorry to have to make comparisons, but the trunk is the downfall on this car, everything else is very good. The Prius trunk is about 30-40% bigger and even though we bought the Camry as our family car, we find that we need to take the Prius on trips because the luggage would need to sit on our laps. Overall the car gets us 35 MPG and just marginally better than the 4 cylinder Camry that our friend owns. The trunk basically needs a one foot extention, don't understand why Toyota didn't do this? Anyway, if you are considering this car, you must factor in that it has a VERY small trunk.


Best Features

Computer, confortable drive.


Worst Features

Trunk, trunk, and more trunk. Didn't think I had to mention that to one of the best car makers there is.
