Toyota has held the 2007 Camry’s first driving event for the press and the web reviews are starting to roll in. Mark our words, nearly every review of the redesigned Camry will mention the word “vanilla” and also conclude that the new sedan will retain its position in 2006 as the country’s best selling car. (Read the Inside Line review and Family review)

None of this comes as a shocker, but we did learn something new about the Camry Hybrid in particular that’s news to us. According to the review by, in CA, MA, NY, NJ, VT, ME, NH and RI the hybrid components in the Camry Hybrid will have a 15-year/150,000-mile warranty and its batteries will be covered for 10 years/150,000 miles. For the rest of the country these components get an 8-year/100,000 mile warranty.

Does this mean Hyundai doesn’t have the biggest warranty in the auto biz any longer? Probably not, as the standard bumper-to-bumper warranty follows the industry average for three years or 36,000 miles and the powertrain is covered for five years or 60,000 miles. Regardless, adding a warranty of that size to its hybrid components will most likely go a long way in helping Toyota dispel fears about the long-term reliability of its hybrid powertrains.
