Model:

Camry Hybrid

Complaint Resolution:

No resolution

Ordered car sight unseen (other than marketing materials) based upon owning 4 previous Toyota vehicles, including a Camry Hybrid. Other than the Toyota logo and Hybrid powertrain, this car lacks all previous Toyota pedigree. It clearly feels like something designed in the US, not in Japan. Fit and finish are

When our 2007 Camry Hybrid LE died of engine problems we would have had to spend 6,000 to get it fixed. We thought getting a new 2019 Camry Hybrid would be just the solution...wrong! We didn't look at an older version because I read about the 2018 remodel regarding improved

If you live where frost heaves show up in the winter and early spring be careful. The Camry has low ground clearance. The navigation system is only good for raising your stress and aggravation level. After using it for a while I removed the app from my phone and bought

As a several decade long Toyota Camry fan I immediately jumped on the bandwagon and purchased this car in December as they were coming available. I made a mistake. For my first time ever, this Toyota was not ready for prime time. As several people mention the infotainment system which

A number of issues I have with my 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE. I certainly hope this gets better. 1. Gas mileage. My 2015 SE rated 38/40 mpg, averaged 36 to 44 mpg over 45,000 miles, dependent on the time of year. Gas mileage appeared to go down during the

I purchased this car because not only is it a hybrid but because I wanted a car with navigation and live traffic map system. It stopped working in the vehicle after 2 months and no update from Toyota for when they will be able to work with Apple phones again.

New 2018 Camrys seen setting on side of road. New 2018 Camrys have been seen sitting on the side of the road on interstate highways lately. This can be alarming to other new Camry owners. But the 2018 Toyota Camrys are not broken down. According to Toyota Customer satisfaction department

We had left the car in our driveway undriven for 24 hours and when we went out to start the car it said "Smart key malfunction" and then it totally died. We tried our other key without success. We called the dealership and they suggested we get roadside assistance. They

While the outside is appealing to the eye the inside is cheaply constructed. The doors sound hollow when shutting. On the inside there isn't any space for stuff. Now I'm stranded after 2 month into a brand new 2020. I was unable to start the car. The lights started flickering

Husband owns a Toyota pickup, so expected great things, but my 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid is uncomfortable in several ways: 1) The supposed lumbar support is laughable and the seat makes your shoulders round forward. 2) Once seated inside the vehicle, the door swings out so far as to be
