The stuttering or hesitant acceleration appears to only occur when at a full complete stop.
The road conditions are dry, it happens 95-100% of the time. I believe at a full stop only the battery is running so no the gas engine is off.
I spoke to the dealer and there have been several others who have complained. I have driven hybrid Camrys and Highlanders before and it never stuttered. They have always accelerated smoothly.
The mechanic referred to this known problem as "Pulse Width Modulation." and he said it does not happen on all of the Camry Hybrids.

Pulse width modulation ?
I have heard of pulse position modulation. It's used in unusual communication systems. I actually designed a PPM for an X-ray Communications System.
I have never heard of Pulse width modulation. It sounds made up. I would ask them to fix it.
Call their bluff. Tell them if they can't fix it, you want it declared a lemon, because the mechanic said it has "pulse width modulation" which makes it stutter all the time.

I have the same issue on an '11 TCH I picked up Friday..
No stuttering if gas is applied very lightly.Said to be normal.
Any follow up on your issue?
#3180 of 3214 Audio Screen on Navigation
Oct 04, 2010 (1:38 pm)
I need to have the audio screen on my 2011 Camry-Hybrid stay active on my navigation screen instead of reverting back to the maps after a few seconds. Any ideas on how to increase the viewing time on the screen?
#3182 of 3214 changing Windshield wipers
Jan 05, 2012 (3:58 am)
I put 5 year lasting silicon windshield wipers on my TCH. I bought them from Amaazon. To
change wipers, pull on the small tab at where the wipers connect with the arm.
I hope this helps.

2008 Camry Hybrid A/C Front light blinking
The light on the Front button on my A/C unit blinks yellow for a minute or two when I turn on the vehicle. While it's blinking I can't do anything with the controls on the A/C unit.
Once the lights quits blinking, the A/C unit always shows the temperature is set to 75 and the fan is off but I can then control the unit completely and it works fine. This has been going on for about a week.

I've replaced the wipers on my Toyota's and most all the other (36 and counting) cars I've ever owned at least once a year.
I drove 36,000+ miles a year (a lot of highway), and I can't get by with wipers that don't work.
I too, tried the nice silicone wiper blades, and they were ok, but not much if any better. Road grime, slush and other shit on the window is just more then wipers can take over the long haul.
I drive New England mostly, but to Florida and points in-between several times a year and I just can't get more then a year out my wiper blades.
