Toyota Camry Hybrid 2007 – 2011

Production of the 2007 Camry was moved from Japan to Lexington KY in the fall of 2006, the new Camry Hybrid began production in the U.S. EPA mileage rating estimated 40 mpg combined (43 cities and 37 highways). The vehicle’s 2.4L, Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine delivered 147-hp, coupled to a continuously variable transmission and supplemented by up to 45 horses from an electric motor and hybrid system. The car moves easily on electric power alone at low speeds and on downgrades, with the engine running only when the computer communicates it does so. Here’s a serious reason consider not to buying a 2007 Camry Hybrid today. The initial diagnostic scan tool for the 2007 Camry Hybrid was the Mastertech, manufactured by Vetronics, a toolmaker which was acquired by The Bosch Group during the Camry Hybrid 2007 roll-out. Toyota then phased out support for the Mastertech shortly after between 2007 to 2008, to partner with its traditional tool partner, Denso Corp. That’s a serious enough wave off for any purchase by me. (Note: Please refer to the list of important tips at the beginning of the Toyota section.)
