Hi all! I'm a newbie here. I just bought 2010 Camry Hybrid and wondering if anyone knows if it is normal for Hybrid Camry. When I start the engine (cold start) the fuel economy guage going up to 30L/100km. and I can feel that the petrol engine works quite hard. The engine works for few minutes from start and never be able to go on EV only mode by the time. After few minutes from start, the engine stops and I can drive EV only mode in lower speed. The engine stops after a minute or two from the engine temperature guage becomes normal. Is this normal symptom to warm up the car or should I go to the dealer and ask to fix?
Hi, as previously mentioned, I recently upgraded from a 2010 to a 2012 Hybrid Camry. One of the big improvements I have noticed is the way the new model uses the regenerative braking to help maintain a set cruise when going down hills with the cruise on. It still struggles down really steep hills to maintain a set speed, but light years ahead of our 2010 model in that regard. With the low rolling resistance tyres our previous Hybrid would continue to increase speed down hills with the cruise set. Without touching the brakes 105Kph was soon say 120kph or more (nice recipe for a speeding fine) and one of the few things I didn't like about our 2010 model! I would still have preferred the cruise control buttons to be on the (ugly) new steering wheel though, like they are on our 2nd car (a 2010 Hyundai i30 CW) rather than a stalk behind the wheel as in the previous model.
