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.

As I braked lightly to turn 90 degrees into my driveway at a low speed, the car suddenly accelerated and smashed on to the side of my front brick stoop. Then it sped down the driveway sightly leftward at break neck speed and crashed into my neighbor's brick house. Police came and then the ambulance, called by my neighbor whose house I hit. The car was totaled.

Defective ball joint/arm sub assembly. Unable to maintain lane. Dealer aligned, refused to test drive at 1700mi. Indiana state police issued warning "weaving within lane' unable to avoid pot hole. Another dealer replaced ball joint/arm sub assembly and I asked dealer to save the parts, invoice commented "tires wearing out" Toyota corporate returned letter denying reimbursement, no reason. Have been trying for three years to get past "consumer service'. "customer service" has" no way to email or communicate with anyone who can explain the rejection", "no email address or phone numbers" to give me. After 3 years, Toyota local district, this month, replaced my tires. The tires that were originally on the front were moved to the rear after the incident. They had only one mm left at 17500 miles. It is quite obvious that there was a lot of wear before the incident. Finally, after I emailed, Toyota "customer experience" phoned me and told me to write a letter to legal. I have all correspondence, invoices That I can mail to you.
