Notes: The Camry Hybrid's first year is a mixed bag of brake actuators failing and power issues. The hybrid version even shares the same excessive oil consumption as its non-hybrid counterpart. And it hardly gets enough fuel efficiency gains to warrant the extra costs up-front or during repairs.

Toyota seemed to get their act together with later model years, so if you're looking for a used Camry Hybrid I suggest looking there.

Camry Hybrid LX

The car stalls and aux battery dies even after replaced. Had to have this car towed to the dealer 2 times so far and after replacing an air intake sensor it died in my driveway and wouldnt start in the am. They claimed it was an unlelated problem and I then had to replace ther aux battery, but that didn't fix it...died again and is still in my driveway...needs to be towed again fir the third time to a dealer service department that cant fix it...soooo sick and tired of Toyota never again!

Camry Hybrid V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles

When this first happened I was waiting for the light to change I pressed on the gas to go when it turned green other cars were going around me, or honking at me to move. Toyota could not find a report that cars make when something goes wrong, I told them I did not want this happening again and to fix it so it could make a report so I would know what was wrong.

Camry Hybrid V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles

I had just left my house following my husband as I went around the corner I noticed my car got slower and slower, I kept pushing on the accelerator. then the car stopped right behind my husbands car, I yelled at him that my car had stopped. I saw an icon on the dash in yellow an engine and below it it said CHECK I had to put the car back to park gear to restart the car again and it did start. When Toyota checked it the next day they said they could not find a report or any codes as to what happened. I cannot go on like this they have to fix my car and pay me be back what I paid or give me another nonhybrid vehicle. I am thinking of suing.
