My wife drives this car mainly around town. She has a very heavy foot...on the gas, off the gas. Averaging 32 mpg after 28,000 miles. When I drive it on trips, I get much better mileage, over 40mp. Even though its over 3 years old, it feels, looks and drives like new. g.
I'm pretty tall and large (6'2", 240 lbs), but this car fits me extremely well (no sunroof, thankfully).
Electronic steering assist does not give great feedback, but it surprisingly makes the front wheel drive feel very solid and absolutely neutral...no FWD steering torque. Engines' integration is absolutely flawless and the transmission is seamless.
My only issue is the ride...its pretty taught...not Mercedes taught, but harsher than that. I attribute it to the high air pressures that the tires carry, and which are monitored by the air pressure monitoring devices. I may disable them and drive the tires with a few less pounds.
This is a very competent, solid car and is a screaming value. Would I buy it again? Absolutely!
Having driven a 97 Camry for 16 years and loved the smooth ride, I've been very disappointed with the much stiffer suspension in my new 2013 Camry XLE.
Why did Toyota think Camry buyers would want to feel every single tiny imperfection in the road?
Doesn't make any sense to me.
Additionally, the front seat backs curve forward near the top of the seatback, pushing my shoulder blades forward.
This has resulted in it being very difficult to find a comfortable driving position.
I love the hybrid drive system.
It works wonderfully.
I'm routinely getting in the mid to high 40s MPG.
It also handles well and has plenty of power.
I commute 40 miles a day. Traded in my 2010 Camry SE I4. for a mid-size hybrid under 25k. Test drove Optima hybrid, Sonata hybrid and the beautiful Fusion, sadly they couldn't keep up to their EPA estimates.
Bought a Camry hybrid LE. 185 miles on the ODO and I am currently averaging 55-61 mpg. 67% city/33% hwy. I don't care about the looks but some rattles are unbearable. The sound quality is good. Seats don't support well but hey, I don't get to work tired..
Just bought a used 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid - 24k miles. Love the color, the features, the ride, the gas mileage! One odd flaw: for some reason, the driver seat in my very well taken care of pre-owned car is not very comfortable at all! It feels like there is a box under the seat! The cushion just doesn't provide enough comfort - which sucks for me - because I commute about 40 miles one way to work and am stuck in traffic here in Houston more than I'd like. I'm average height and build, so I don't think my size is the issue. The car is a little hard to get used to - hybrids make strange noises that non-hybrids do not! But overall, it rides very smoothly and accelerates like a dream! I'm averaging about 40MPG highway - awesome. I love my new Camry Hybrid - just do NOT think the comfort of the driver's seat is all that great.
