Pros

Smooth handling, fast takeoff, and very comfortable.

Cons

Hard to think of some, this would be a more family friendly car, if you want something to fuel your adrenaline look somewhere else. Also sucks in the snow from time to time.

Smooth And Swift — This car has been extremely reliable and pulls really good for 268 hp. The fuel for her is very good, especially now with gas being so low, about $25 every week or 2 weeks depending on how much I drive. The car is extremely comfortable and roomy, excellent for long drives.

Good Buy — Pretty quick for large car, very spacious , good sound system, good mileage , great pickup, not enough power though and options are a bit crummy. Not much required to own one. The car is really fun to drive and very cheap.

2008 Camry Se — I liked my Camry, but there were a few things that bothered me. The engine was underpowered and had a bad hesitation when you put the gas pedal to the floor. Some of the trim was poorly chosen, and gets scuffed up very easily. The car was very comfortable to drive/ride in. My biggest complaint was I didn't trust the car when merging with traffic or passing someone, sometimes when you hit the gas, the engine would barely get above an idle. In my opinion that can be dangerous.

Mi Auto Favorito — This is a great car. The exterior styling is definetly awesome. Interior is very roomy and comfortable. The controls on the dashboard are well designed and easy to use. The JBL Audio system is just terrific. Steering wheel mounted audio controls are sweet. Excellent stability and perfect aerodynamics. Fun to drive. Handles very well even in windy conditions and in torrential pouring down rain.

A Big, Fierce Lookin' Camry That Lacks The "usual" Build Quality! — Tough Looks. Stands out as the biggest & roomiest in its class. Engine & transmition RoCk! Handling & braking needs alot of improvement. Very "plastic" interior is of poor quality & feels cheap.

2008 Toyota Camry Le 4cyl. — Reliable-Boring, Slow-Boring,Styling-Boring. This is a good car. A logical choice for consumers but I hate boring cars. When you own a car it says something about who you are. This can says nothing. It drives good gets incredible mileage, and even smells nice on the inside. I hate how Toyota designs things so only their mechanics can work on them.

I Loved This Car. — I used this car for my daily commute as well as several long trips. I'd set the cruise control at 10 MPH above the speed limit, and relax. Traffic jams became a matter of pride as I knew that my engine would shut off when I wasn't moving. (Ironically, the Camry Hybrid gets BETTER fuel economy in stop and go driving that it does cruising the highway at 65 MPH. It's all in the way the Synergy Drive System works.) I enjoyed saving money on gas while remaining relatively anonymous in my normal looking car. As a nice bonus, Massachusetts allows you to travel in the HOV lane without passengers if you are driving a hybrid. Also, the Hybrid Only spaces at the Boston Common garage are usually available and in a primo location :-) The car has plenty of power (I used to jokingly say to my passengers "that's TWO engines" when I'd have to accelerate to merge in traffic or for some other reason. The handling is fine, once you get used to it. This car is not for a slalom course, it's for driving to work in comfort. The braking is different from a non-hybrid. The car is slowed by regenerative braking until you get down to 12 MPH, in regular situations. So the brakes get almost no wear if you brake slowly and smoothly. In a panic the regular brakes kick in immediately and stop you in plenty of time. This is a fantastic car. I'm replacing it with a newer hybrid and wanted to sell it while there is still plenty of miles left on it for the next owner.

Excellent Blend Of Comfort And Economy — She likes it so far, although the seat is not as good as her old Lexus. We will see how it holds up, our previous hybrids have done well. This one is much more comfortable. Good power with the electric assist. We had an issue with the brakes recently. The lights came on and alarms screamed and scared her to death. When I took it to my mechanic the next day I could feel the brakes engaging although I wasn't doing it. When I got to the shop the left front wheel was warm. The mechanic said the code said "low pressure in the accumulator" in the brake actuator and maybe I should take it to the dealer. While he was backing out of the garage very slowly, the brakes engaged on their own, then the lights all went off and the alarm stopped and it's been fine ever since. The dealer said everything looked good, and they wouldn't advise do anything. A new actuator is $2800.00 for the part alone.So we are just driving it. Might have been a computer glich, no one seems to know. Update: They had a recall for a brake problem, it only messed up that one time. We have grown to like it very much, my Prius's seats are not as comfortable for a long trip, the mileage is under 40 MPG but still very good. I can see why Consumer Reports ranks it #1.
