Thought I would jump in here as a 2007 Camry hybrid owner. I suggest anyone planing to buy a Toyota Camry, at least test drive the hybrid. I am not trying to SELL the car, I am suggesting not at least trying it, would be a mistake. If you decide to take my advice, just drive it, don"t baby it or any other special treatment. You have a surprise comming. JMHO.

No surprise there.....
Camry is lightweight, FWD, and HSD generates so much TORQUE that the ECU cannot allow the use of full torque even with your foot to the FLOOR.
It is a real shame, truly, that Toyota doesn't see fit, hasn't seen fit, to build a RWD hybrid SUV in this weight class.
If ever a Prius or Camry hybrid and a Porsche Boxster or Cayman turn up in Ebay savage simultaneously I'll be off to the races.

I was going to get the 08 camry hybrid until I test drove one. The car picks up like a slug, I think my wife's prius exccelerate faster.

#27 of 42 TSB's for 2009 Camry

Hi, I bought a new 2009 Camry a month back. Will the dealer do the TSB's without any fee or will they charge a fee for it?

Free - just complain of the hesitation when accelerating. Takes 1/2 hour.

Does the May 2008 TSB for the hesitation problem indicate which VIN number onwards already have the TSB applied?

Yes it does, but I have not seen it yet. All TSBs indicate when the TSB was applied to the production lines.
#31 of 42 Put to N or R while on a stop light

Is it beneficial to put the drive to Neutral or Park while you are on a stop light?
I read that it reduces the pressure on the transmission and extends its life?
Pleas let me know if anybody has any idea on this.

No, do not do this, unless it is for >3 minutes or so. It is actually more harmful to shift into and out of gear in an automatic.
