"I use to drive BMWs, this car is better than they were."5.0 starson by bcando
Pros: This car handles and is a pleasure to drive, or being a passenger. I loved the mpg, it's a relatively quite cabin. Our passengers on the first leg, added 380 pounds, plus luggage, plus one of them was 6'4 and was comfortable in front or rear seat.
Cons: The only CON that I have, is, I do not have more trips planned, to drive this well executed machine. Toyota got this right and no one can prove me wrong.
Summary: Picked up our new XLE Hybrid 12/16/11 and immediately drove 7300 miles, Vancouver, Wa to La Quinta, Ca comfortably for 17 hours with 4 people in a huge cabin. Mileage for that run, 37.8. La Quinta to Mesquite, Tx with only 2 of us, on both Freeway and back road,39.8 miles. Heading back home, we encountered head winds all the way, and from Burley, Id to The Dalles, Or, SNOW, sometimes as much as 4" - 6", slush that trucks in the right lane would hit and it would blind us temporally. Our mileage coming home set our total mileage back to 37.6 where it has stayed since we arrived home. I have driven cars almost this good, but that was 1981 - 1984 and the cars were BMW, yes a 320i that drove well in the snow and slush. Reviews should have some good distance mileage and mine does. This is not a first impression as a result of a trip or few, around the track. I now have 8300 miles, how many did the previous reviewer drive that Camry?Reading this post caused me to review the other comments by this poster. Nothing positive about any of the products. I'm not sure that they had contact with the two products written about. Two different Camry reviews, nothing in either that made me believe the poster had the least bit of contact with the product. Phone review was about smooth feel, only. Opinion should be based on education (experience), how did you arrive at your opinions? Just because you can think a thought, doesn't mean you are educated enough to review
