Okay — It is not perfect but it does its job and does it well. Burns oil but Toyota says that is normal. radio doesn't pick up a lot of stations. All of this can be verified on forums. I have had since it was new and have put 140k mi. on the thing. It works and I would purchase again.

Overall Reliable — Car is a great car, just need something bigger and automatic.Only did required services and recently changed the tires. All in all this car is very reliable. Other than routine maintenance nothing else was required. I also put rims and wider tires which ade the handling a bit better.

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.

Love the look of the sportier SE model

Cons

I am looking t o buy a super white Camry SE but have found major issues with the paint being oxidized on the cars I have looked at.  Upon googling white paint issues with Toyota I learned that they put a single stage white on these cars with NO clear coat.  Owners are having major problems with their white Toyota paint jobs after just a couple of years of ownership.  So still looking to buy a Toyota Camry but staying away from white and moving onto charcoal.  Not into having a car with a dull finish.  Looks like Toyota made a big goof trying to save a few bucks on these paint jobs.

Love The Sporty Image — Paint job on the white Camrys have major problems. Love the interior of the SE models and the spoilers that keep it from looking like a grandpa car. Sunroof is also a great addition on these cars. Gotta love Toyotas-my 98' Corolla is still going strong!

Hybrid Just Not Worth It Yet — The car is a great car but I feel we would have been just as happy with a non-hybrid car. Actually may have been more happy since a big portion of trunk is lost to battery cooling. The car is now running in mid 30's for fuel economy which could easily be done with a diesel car and not the extra cost upfront from the battery. If you are looking for best fuel economy, diesel is still king. If you want to save the earth, remember the nickel in the battery is mined in canada, transported to Europe to be made into the battery, then shipped to the US or Japan to be assembled. If you recycle the car when you are done you still have consumed more energy than you saved.

Great Car For The Money, — I just picked up a 08 Camry XLE with a V6. It is a wonderful car and I love the way it feels on the road. Mine has everything except keyless and navigation. This is my first Toyota, I chose the brand for it's reputation of reliability and the Camry is the size of car I was looking at. I wanted a sedan that has some performance and I sure got it, I really like this car.
