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 FamilyCar.com, 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.
