Model Highlights

Toyota's 2008 Camry is available in many different trim levels, ranging from basic to luxurious, with either a four-cylinder engine or a V6. The 2.4L four-cylinder engine smoothly generates 158 horsepower and 161 lb-ft of torque, and it comes with either a five-speed manual or automatic. The 3.5L V6 develops 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The V6 has Toyota's Dual VVT-i (variable valve timing with intelligence) system, which helps optimize power and efficiency through the entire operating range.

The Camry Hybrid pairs an Atkinson-cycle 2.4L four-cylinder gasoline engine making 147 horsepower with a 40-horsepower electric motor system--together producing a combined 187 horsepower that places the Hybrid above the four-cylinder in terms of power. This grunt is delivered through a continuously variable transmission. The Hybrid also includes an "ECO" button that limits the power drawn by the climate control system and slightly increases fuel economy.

All 2008 Camrys come with impressive standard safety equipment, including anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), and brake assist, along with seat-mounted side air bags and side-curtain air bags. Vehicle stability control (VSC) is available as a standalone option ($650), while Camry Hybrid models come with standard vehicle dynamics integrated management (VDIM), a stability control system that brings together inputs from the throttle, brakes, and steering and is able to make minor corrections to maintain stability.

Besides the Hybrid, Camrys come in four different trim levels, including the economical CE, mid-range LE, lavishly equipped XLE, and sporty SE. The CE starts at $18,570 and is only available with the four-cylinder, while the LE, XLE, and SE can be had with either engine. CE standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control, a six-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. The LE adds more features like a power driver's seat and remote keyless entry. XLE models start at $25,000 and include a long list of upgrades including dual-zone climate control, a 440-watt, eight-speaker JBL sound system with six-disc changer and Bluetooth compatibility, a power moonroof, reclining rear seats, aluminum wheels, and fog lamps.

The sportier SE model adds a blackout grille, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a sport suspension with lower ride height to the LE's equipment.

All Camrys get a multi-function display that includes trip-computer functions such as average fuel consumption, and the Hybrid model adds information about the powertrain's performance.

Standalone options on the CE include vehicle stability control. On the LE, 16-inch alloy wheels, a JBL stereo with Bluetooth, and moonroof can be added. The performance-minded SE's options list includes the Sport Leather Package with heated seats and mirrors, and a $2,200 navigation system. At the top of the lineup, the XLE's options include the navigation system, heated seats, and the Smart Key system. In short, there's a Camry out there for nearly any driver.

The option list for the Hybrid grows by virtue of some de-contenting Toyota has done in order to lower the entry price by $1,000. The content removed from 2007 can be added back via a new Upgrade Package ($1,150) that adds alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a JBL audio system with a six-disc CD changer, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, and Bluetooth. Also available is a leather seating package, a moonroof, and a navigation system that can be paired with the Upgrade Package for an additional $1,200.


Model News

For all but the Hybrid, 2008 Toyota Camry prices are up $100 across the board, and the lineup and option offerings remain the same. The Hybrid's base price drops $1,000 to $25,200, due to loss of some standard content--steel wheels replace 2007's alloys, the steering wheel and shift knob lose their leather coating, the JBL audio system with six-disc changer is replaced by a single-CD setup, the auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass has been replaced by a manual model, and Bluetooth is off the list of standards. A new Upgrade Package is available for $1,150 and adds back this formerly standard equipment. The navigation system, which in 2007 was a stand-alone option, is now only available with the content of the Upgrade Package.


Pros

Value; available fuel economy and performance; roomy interior; luxury-car amenities; smooth, quiet ride.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Toyota Camry continues to live up to its reputation as one of the most sensible buys among mid-size sedans, from the frugal-but-well-equipped four-cylinder CE model to the V6 XLE that flirts with having luxury-car appointments. For 2008, Toyota has removed some standard equipment and $1,000 from the base price of the Hybrid, making it easier to go easy on the biosphere.

Summary
CERTAIN ALL WEATHER FLOOR MATS (AWFM) SPECIFICALLY SOLD AS AN OPTIONAL ACCESSORY FOR USE ON THE 2007 AND 2008 MODEL YEAR LEXUS ES350 AND TOYOTA CAMRY VEHICLES. THE AWFM INCLUDES TWO GROMMET HOLES AND RETAINING HOOKS (CLIPS) TO SECURE THE MAT TO THE VEHICLE'S CARPET. IF THE AWFM IS NOT SECURED BY ITSELF OR IF IT IS PLACED ON TOP OF AN EXISTING CARPETING FLOOR MAT, THE MAT COULD MOVE FORWARD DURING THE VEHICLE USAGE AND IT MAY INTERFERE WITH THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL.

Consequence
THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL MAY TEMPORARILY BECOME STUCK IN A PARTIALLY DEPRESSED POSITION WHEN RETURNING TO THE IDLE POSITION. IF THIS CONDITION OCCURS, IT MAY INCREASE THE POSSIBILITY OF A CRASH.

TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS OF ALL 2007 AND 2008 LEXUS ES350 AND TOYOTA CAMRY VEHICLES ABOUT THE RECALL EVEN THOUGH NOT ALL OF THESE OWNERS WILL HAVE PURCHASED THE ALL WEATHER MATS. IF THE OWNER HAD NOT PURCHASED THE MATS, THEY ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THE RECALL. THIS LETTER WILL ADVISE OWNERS WHEN REPLACEMENT MATS WILL BE AVAILABLE. A SECOND LETTER WILL BE SENT AFTER MATS ARE AVAILABLE REQUESTING OWNERS TO RETURN THEIR MATS TO A LEXUS OR TOYOTO DEALER FOR EXCHANGE OF THE DRIVER'S SIDE MAT. THE FIRST LETTER IS EXPECTED TO BE SENT DURING EARLY OCTOBER 2007 AND THE SECOND IN LATE NOVEMBER 2007. OWNERS CAN CONTACT THE LEXUS CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT 1-800-255-3987 OR THE TOYOTA CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE CENTER AT 1-888-270-9371.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Camry, Camry Hybrid, RAV4, Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Tundra, Sequoia, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, Yaris, Scion xB, Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles. The power window master switch assemblies in some of these vehicles were built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assemblies. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat.

Consequence
If the switch overheats, it may melt, possibly resulting in a fire.

Toyota will notify its owners, and dealers will inspect the switch and apply a special grease that inhibits heat build up or replace any switch damaged by the defect, free of charge. Toyota owners that experience a problem with a switch should not attempt to make repairs, but should contact their Toyota dealer or the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331. General Motors will contact the Pontiac Vibe owners affected by this recall and GM dealers will inspect and repair switches as necessary. Those owners may contact Pontiac Customer Care at 1-800-762-2737.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
