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


I traded in my low-mileage, garage-kept 2003 Buick LeSabre Limited for the Camry Hybrid due to the fact that I drive in a mostly urban environment and out of fears of soaring gas prices. The trunk is much smaller than the Buick's, but I still have my minivan for the big stuff. My only complaint about the vehicle is the poor quality of interior materials which deliver their own 'symphony' of sounds until the cabin warms up. I expected better in a Toyota. Overall - I am happy with my purchase and would do it again.

Best Features

The hybrid synergy system, my first moonroof, smart key system, impressive gas mileage (approx 32-33MPG so far).

Worst Features

1) Light ALL the switches on the drivers/passenger's doors. 2) Relocate the ECO switch - it is right next to the gas filler switch - easy to press wrong one. 3) Back-up assist/warning system would be helpful. 4) 8 Speaker audio is fine, but an added subwoofer would be 'divine'.
