Toyota really got this car right We have taken a couple of day-long trips and it couldn't be more pleasurable. (Note: There is significantly more room/comfort in the back seat than in our BMW!) When we bought the Hybrid we thought we were sacrificing luxury in the Camry but were completely surprised. The infinitely variable transmission makes the car run so smoothly at any speed that it's hard to compared to any other car we've owned. It has gas+electric power to pass and it's quick on its feet. In town the mileage and comfort of the climate control is great even on the truly hot days. And the car is so quiet that we can enjoy the well-tuned stereo system and satellite radio, or the iPod, while we are on a trip. We have had NOTHING mechanically wrong since we drove it off the showroom floor....12500 miles ago. The mileage in town is really about 34-35mpg and we get from 37-42mpg on the highway depending on terrain and weather. The comfort, style and sheer pleasure of driving this nimble luxury Camry Hybrid has exceeded our expectations.

I purchased an '07 Camry hybrid a few months ago. I love the ride, the look, the accessories, and the gas mileage (I average around 36 most tanks). I didn't realize how much I was really able to save by trading in my 4-runner. The only down side is I do get some rattles around the speakers, but all-in-all I really love this car.

I bought my 2007 Camry Hybrid new off the lot in 2007. 45,000 miles later I still love it and have not had a single problem with it. Averaging 37 mpg and wondering why anyone would buy a Prius when you can have the Camry?? I rented a Prius on a business trip and averaged 45 mpg but it doesn't have nearly as much room and the ride is nothing compared to my Camry. I don't think you could ask for more in a Hybrid and highly recommend this often overlooked car to everyone.

Best car I've Owned

With over 70K miles on the odometer, I still love this car. I've monitored mileage for every tank and put overall fuel mileage at 37.5 mpg. Other reviews claim bad tire mileage, I just replaced the first set at 59K miles with original equipment tires approx. $150 each installed by dealer. On 8K trip to the west coast and back averaged 38 mpg. Leather has held up well even with a 70 lb dog in the back seat most of the time.

Purchased the '07 Camry Hyrid in June 2006 after testdriving the Prius and finding that it surged at highway speeds. I am a car lover and purchased this for my wife and I'm still amazed at the great ride and acceleration...so smooth and very enjoyable! We get great mileage, 36mph in the city and over 40 on the highway. Brakes are still great at 45k. I traded a 2005 Accord w. leather for this car that was slow (4cyl) and uncomfortable. My only knocks on this car are a slightly uncomfortable driving position for me, at 6ft. and JBL radio just not great. Again, great power when desired, creamy ride, and very nice steering, braking, and handling. Excellent car.

Better mileage than advertised

by from Denver, CO on September 7, 2008

I consistently get far better mileage on the highway than it's rated. The city mileage is accurate. I bought this as a secondary car, but it's become our primary family vehicle.

I love the car,it has good power for a heavy car. gas is not as advertized.I drove to Texas alone and the gas mileage was amazing, but all it took to change taht on the way back was put my wife and son in and gas and power changed a whole lot, for the worst. it only averaged 32 mpg, which is very good, but toyota advertized 40 city & 38 highway. I drove the car for 460 miles on one thank, but I was surprised when I filled up I could only put 14 gallons in out of 17 that car has. so 32.9 miles per gallon. mine is pretty sump up, leather,navigation,bluetooth,mp3, some materials inside are cheap looking,and when it rains it makes a really loud noise rain hitting roof. leather seats are hard and made legs and back hurt, the 670 mile trip felt like a thousand miles. Sad the navigation does not have back up camera and wood accents, thats all mine is missing. I bought it used and got put on brand new tires and breaks by the dealer. but breaks are squealing now, don't know if its the ones dealer put on new or the ones they didn't put on. all in all I love this car and I hope it doesn't break down on me, I am afraid of the money I would pay for new battery or new anything. brother of mine has a nissan altima 2.5 and gets far better mileage than mine, although with 2.7 more gallons, still he gets better than 600 miles on one thank. I would recommend this car to anyone is just a bad deal that toyota is the most expensive hybrid out there. go get a used one instead of paying for depreciation of new car, you will not know the difference other than the brand new smell, but its offset by the $3 to $4000 you will save, and with that money you can super clean the car andput back the nice smell.

This is the most comfortable car for someone tall

by from Pflugerville on September 16, 2010

Leg room is incredible, overall value is great. Gas mileage is excellent and this car runs like a dream. Very quiet and comfortable on the highway. Lots of pick up and go in town.

I purchased a used 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid with 54,000 miles and could not be more pleased with it. The car came with all the options including a GPS and heated leather seats. Yes the plastic trim on the interior doors is pretty cheap looking but that's such a small matter when compared with the smooth and quiet ride, lots of acceleration, and phenomenal gas mileage. 35 miles per gallon at 75 miles per hour with the air conditioning on during a long drive cross country on interstates. Closer to 40 miles per hour at lower speeds and about 32 or 33 miles per gallon for my daily commute that includes both highway and in-town driving. We love this car.

Camry Hybrid Battery Failure

I love this car but the hybrid battery went bad (low voltage) at 160,000 miles which weakened the performance. It ran on the gas engine, but after a few months, it would stall and then would have a hard start and then it would be jerky going forward or backward when it was started. Eventually it would not go at all. I was tempted to junk it, but after reading comments from other owners and mechanics, I found out that the cells that are bad in the hybrid battery could be replaced instead of buying a new or used hybrid battery which would cost thousands. I put an ad on craigslist and found an experienced mechanic who could do that. Only 4 cells needed to be replaced at $50 each, plus labor. If the mechanic doesn't have extra good cells, then you can order them. E-Bay had lots of businesses that sell them. I now have my "rebuilt " battery in and my car runs like new!! I am so happy with it. I realize now that the hybrid battery controls almost everything and the car can't run well without it. Also, it is not good to run the car if the battery goes bad, this will weaken the battery some more, which might damage more cells. I have heard that the older batteries last about 8 years. Overall, it seems that you pay double for a hybrid car but the gas savings don't come close to reimbursing the extra cost for the car. But it is better for the environment, as long as you can afford it. But hybrid batteries for newer cars cost less and last longer. I hope this helps others. If you live in the Tucson, Az area, I will gladly give you the name of the mechanic (he gave me permission). lynncaz3@yahoo.com
