Very poor MPG - poor cost/benefit

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


Coming up on 7th month of ownership. I bought the TCH when fuel prices were above $4/gal. and expected EPA estimated mileage. Whole family big Toyota fans; second and third generation Camry owners. Gas mileage on my MID hovers between 26-28 MPG tank avg combined city/hwy. Had diagnostic today and am being told by Toyota Dealership and Toyota Customer Service that "there is nothing wrong with my vehicle". Have read every tip, trick and blog about "driving the hybrid" for best mileage. This is NOT user error :) Hybrid cost/benefit NOT worth it for this kind of mileage

Best Features

Same beautiful Toyota Camry vehicle design and driving experience. Heated side view mirrors a big plus.

Worst Features

Improve fuel economy/performance! Improve diagnostic technique and/or customer service regarding fuel economy. If most reviews are EPA estimate or better then either reviews are biased (screened) OR something is wrong with my particular TCH. Very much hope Toyota addresses my MPG issue.
