Pros With over 40K miles on the odometer, our Camry Hybrid has a lifetime 39.2 MPG.
* Driven hard, with lots of jackrabbit starts, it achieves 32 MPG
* Driven gently and going with the flow of traffic, I regularly push 50 MPG in heavy DC Beltway traffic
Cons * Pillow-soft ride
* Modest loss in trunk space
* Peculiar stereo controls
Summary This car is fantastic for sleeping passengers and babies as it's whisper quiet. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) combined with all-electric mode below 43 mph keep engine noise consistent.
I love the keyless ignition, you need only have the keys in your pocket. The driver door and trunk also open without pulling your keys out, great when you've got full hands at the store.
The Camry is a Toyota, and has Toyota driving characteristics (minimized driving experience, not unlike driving a pillow). If you prefer more sports car like responsiveness, definitely take the Ford Fusion Hybrid for a spin.
With the Camry Hybrid, you do lose a bit of trunk space. It's still cavernous and an easy trade for double the city MPG though.
The Camry Hybrid is a wonderful commuter car, I would definitely recommend it.
If you're interested in this car, you should definitely check out the brand-new Ford Fusion Hybrid as well.

Pros I like this generic hybrid sedan from Toyota. It does all the little and big things without calling too much attention to itself.
Cons The JBL Premium sound system needs a bit of tweeking. The mid bass is a bit too much, even after trying to turn it down. The speakers need to be replaced with units that can withstand wide values of dynamic range.
Summary The Toyota Camry Hybrid was built with Government or Rental in mind. You might also enjoy not having any headaches if you use in gently.
Pros Terrific ride, very nicely equipped, econo-box fuel economy in a sedan. The sound system criticisms in the review are exagerrated, however the amp does overpower the speakers quite noticeably.
Cons The only interior color options are light in tone. Expect scuffs to accumulate quickly and floor mats to get dirty fast. Factory tint is not avail - dumbfounded by this one. Slow off the line - expected and tolerable compromise for fuel economy.
Summary The '09 Camry is comfortable, very quiet (hands free calls at freeway speeds are remarkably clear), has slightly sportier styling compared to past generations, smooth handling and can be loaded nicely with creature comforts and gagetry.
"Disappointing"on by gremel
Pros Compared the Ford Fusion Hybrid to the Camry Hybrid and the Fusion was the winner. The Fusion had better performance, a more up to date technical dashboard and the ability to run on elecric only up to 40mph.
Cons Slowwwwww, overpriced, MPG not as good other Hybrids.
Summary Ok, but not as good as the Ford Fusion. Camry styling is running a bit long in the tooth. Do yourself a favor and compare the two before buying. I think you will be very surprised at the winner.
Pros I like its slight driving , and it`s mileage , the JBL audio is brilliant and the plasma cluster conditioner is so cool , it is refreshing !
Cons it doesn`t have a standard GPS so it is kind of annoying , it doesn`t have standard leather seats .
