2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Currently i have about 32K miles after 18 months. The car averages between 36- 38, with 38 being the norm in warmer weather. Folks getting these lower mileage numbers perhaps need a few lessons on driving a hybrid. You glide, not stomp on the gas. Have noticed that the mileage is better when combined with around the town and highway mileage. Still a great car, despite the publicity with Toyota.


Best Features

Bluetooth, leather, speaker sound and fabulous mileage for such a large car. Stability and traction control make it very nice in bad weather.


Worst Features

Cannot get wood steering wheel or inserts, hopefully that will change. Add AWD as an option.

2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

After 1 year & 10,000 miles, I'm still as happy with my Camry hybrid as the day I drove it off the lot! Hubby loves driving it, too. No problem navigating the snow-and-ice covered streets this winter. Accelerates easily. Smooth, comfortable ride. Plenty of room in back seat. MPG runs 38-39 all city, 40-42 interstate (70 mph). Had 6 weeks of extremely cold weather this winter & mileage dropped to 34-36 mpg--car did not turn off when idling as heater had to run non- stop! Ranked quality a "10" as my car's performance has been stellar to date--BUT--my gas pedal was recently refitted, per recall, & twice I've noticed there is a lapse between my acceleration & the response of the car. Scary...


Best Features

Gas economy. Smooth ride. Easy handling. Keyless entry & start. Heated seats.


Worst Features

Climate control system needs to be easier to adjust. Quick, honest, responsible and transparent response to identified defects in vehicles to rebuild customer confidence.

Review

I absolutely love this car. I realize that Toyota has taken a beating lately with recalls but I still feel it's one of the best cars on the road. Gas mileage is terrific - getting very close to 40 mpg average and this is checking it with a calculator not relying on the gauge. The interior is plush - I do however have a loaded model. Incidentally I disagree with the Edmunds' statement that an Altima has a nicer interior. I looked at them as well as the Ford Fusion and felt both had inferior interiors and neither Fords or the Altimas gas engine was as quiet as the Camry. It's quiet, solid very comfortable for long trips. I would heartily recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

Gas Mileage


Worst Features

Calibrate the avg tank mileage indicator so it more accurately reflects true mileage - mine is about 1 1/2 to 2 miles optimistic.

Review

Upon buying this car I was so impressed with the quality of the material, the fit and finish especially the quietness of the ride. Until this last few months when the doors start to rattle and the mpg is not great enough as a hybrid, average 30 mpg.


Best Features

The quality of the materials, the smoothness of the ride, ergonomics.


Worst Features

Increased miles per gallon and more oomph to acceleration.The engine is too small.
