Welcome to the Forum Dan. Do they have the 2006 HAH in Canada yet? Sounds like they are held up from the US market for a couple more months. Let us know how you like the car when you get it.

#42 of 57 HAH vs. new hybrid camry
Feb 18, 2006 (8:07 pm)
Hi everybody....What do y'all think about the new 07 hybrid camry that's coming out? From the pictures I've seen, I think I like it better than my 05 HAH, especially the interior. Major plus is the high horsepower 4 cyl. with the awesome mileage they are posting. may have to trade...won't know until I actually drive one...They aren't due in until late march.

If I were Jaxflygirl I would not trade it in for the Camry hybrid for the following reasons:
- HAH's power is greater than he Camry hybrid.
- Camry hybrid quality has not been proven.
- Honda has much more experience in hybrid technology.
- I will buy a HAH '06.
- The '06 regular Camry was given 6/ 10 by MSN's male auto critic while the female critic gave it 9.5/ 10.
- It's true that the 3,800 lbs HAH hybrid is so light like a feather which flies on the road.

Hi all my partner and I just got a 2007 HAH in pearl white. He is selling his 99 Forester. We took our first long road trip this weekend and were very pleased with the power, comfort and mpg's, we were getting 28.8 mpg's at one point. My primary vehicle is a Honda Ridgeline. Too bad it did not come in a hybrid, but I love it anyway. The speed of the HAH is impressive. The only thing I did not like was a strumming noise with the moonroof in tilt position, that does not happen with my ridgeline. It has the same swooping sound that my ridgeline has with the rear windows open and cracking one of the front windows or the moonroof solves. Other than that , I love the car so far . Oh , I am imdragonslayer. aka Martin.

Just purchased 2007 HAH with 3,305 on the ticker. Drove it from one end of the state to the other, and then back to the center within 24 hours. First 200 miles, I rarely went over 55 - 60 MPH and averaged 36.8 MPG in hilly terrain.
The next 250 miles were spent around 70 - 75 MPH and the average declined to 33.3 MPG. This included a little horsing around while relatives tossed the car around a few sharp bends. I'm still running on that first tank of gasoline!
Power, handling and performance were the reasons I purchased this vehicle. The additional MPG are a welcome bonus. I will be happy if I average 25 MPG overall. That will be a 25% improvement over my previous vehicle [Buick GS, supercharger, 240 HP].
Stay tuned. As I gain more knowledge of my new ride, I'll offer comparisons to my old Buick, may she rest in pieces.

I just thought I'd share a recent experience. I was called a few weeks ago by a company doing a survey on hybrid cars. I'm not sure where they got my name from, but at the end I was invited to take part in a group discussion that included other hybrid car owners- we ended up being a marketing test group for the new lexus hybrid coming out next year. The group was made up of accord and camry hybrid owners and two facts were obvious. One is that the camry owners LOVED their car- raves about gas mileage and general satistifaction- even from previous lexus owners with much lower expectations. Those of us who owned accords all wished we could fix at least one thing (I wanted a spare tire) in addition to the disappointing MPH in city driving. Now I could add Honda's engineering dept. that has not addressed the VCM vibration/lurching problem that is obviously not my imagination. The camry never did suit me for looks, and frankly has gotten too big. Maybe good for some, but I really do like the way my 05 Accord was styled. It is elegant and handles pretty well. The new lexus was way too flashy- looks like the new BMWs and smaller Mercedes- and very expensive. I've always had my cars for at least 10 years- and I hope this car doesn't become the first that needs to be traded in.
