#560 of 670 2011 Hybrid pricing question
Jun 24, 2010 (11:18 am)
I put this on the general Camry forum, but got no response. I'm working with World Toyota (Atlanta) on a deal for a 2011 Camry Hybrid, options/fees listed below. The TMV Edmunds gives me is 29706.
Upgrade Package w/Nav
Integrated Front Fog Lamps
Heated Outside Mirrors
SET Destination Charge for NC, SC, GA, AL and FL
SET Administration Fee for NC, SC, GA, AL and FL
50 State Emissions
I've got a "no haggle" quoted price of 27996. My plan is to finance with Toyota--0% 60 months with a decent sized down payment. Does everyone expect the 0% deal to be extended?
What do you think about the potential deal?

Suggest at a minimum that you check out www.truecar.com. It is one of the best search sites I have seen for digging up the most competitive price. You will enjoy the car. I get between 38-40 in warm weather and 36-38 in colder weather (Connecticut0. Only complaint are the performance tires they put on only lasted 35,000 and that was with rotation every 5,000 miles. Replaced them with Hankook, which were highly rated on snow and ice, but they are all season tires with a 100k rating.

How long have you had the hankook tires? Do you notice a mileage difference from the original tires? How does the car ride on the hankook tires? Quieter? Noisier? Smoother? rougher?

Literally just got them and they feel softer than my oroginal Bridgestone Turanza ones. But that could be that they others were worn down. Quieter and smoother.
#564 of 670 maintenance interval with synthetic oil for 2008 TCH
Sep 23, 2010 (11:11 am)
Was at the dealer today and was told that the synthetic oil was good for 10,000 mile interval on my 2008 TCH. Does anyone know if this is correct...I was under the impression that tis interval was only for 2010 and later model years.
Thanks in advance for your reply.

What does the owner's manual say? Manual trumps dealer in my opinion.

Just bought a 2011 TCH.
Here are the quality issues I observed so far.
1. Seat belts for front passengers are very difficult to reach.
2. The auto-dimming mirror is not anchored correctly, it is wobbly. The same on all cars on the dealer's lot.
3. My NAV display unit has magenta color cast and dealer says not a thing wrong with it.
4. The JBL sound system cannot display artist's name on tracks. The same CD displays artist's name and all with no problem on 2008 Honda Accord and 2007 TL.
5. The left rear passenger's mat does not have a shaped cut correctly, and thus goes over (instead of around) a plastic housing underneath the driver's seat.
(1) I hate the outside mirrors that do not fold. Hello? I paid $33K for this car.
(2) I hate the expensive stereo that cannot display the CD text properly; and the fact that there is no STOP button.
(3) There should be vent holes at the last four inches of the moon-roof shade so that air could come in when "moon-roof is in the up position and the shade is in shut position".
(4) Shortcomings of LEDs. The dimmer for the instrument panel is not smooth across the range. It is almost like ON and OFF.
(5) The RF remote control could be flatter or more attractive. I paid $33K for the car, hello!

With all those "dislikes" it sounds like you bought the wrong car for you.
Take it back.
#568 of 670 driving impressions on the TCH
Oct 19, 2010 (5:31 am)
I am driving the 2000 Camry now and test drove the 2011 TCH yesterday. Honestly, did not like it at all. Humongous body roll and too much play on the steering. Has anybody experienced it s well or is it just me? My 2000 Camry "hugs" the road much better. Not sure why Toyota has chosen to go down that path, but I am going to look at the Altima Hybrid today...

Well, hybrids are not known for "road hugging" because they are not designed as a sports car.
Some of them handle better than others, but the whole point of a hybrid is to enjoy it as a high mileage vehicle, and not to punish it on a tight, curvy mountain road.
I have owned two hybrids in the last 6 years, and the enjoyment comes from the MPG meter, not from the steering wheel.
