"If you raise the hood, you will think that it is a new car with all new components inside and outside. It's a shame that KBB doesn't take into consideration that now and then we can keep something as perfect as the day it was born. To us this will last longer than we will, and look as good as it could ever forever. It sure is great to be able to proudly say "I love my CAMRY"."

We bought this car 2nd hand from a used car dealer

"It only had 20,000 miles on it at the time it was about 2 years old when we purchased it. we had trouble at the time finding a V- 6 model so when we found this one we jumped on it. I have taken care of the prevent matinituce ie all fluides and ALL THE FILTERS (OIL AND AIR), changed the oil every 3000 to 4000 miles relioughesly. Using Castrol MOTOR OIL in all my vehicals since my very first car. STILL SO DEPENDABLE AT 32MPG EVEN AT THIS STAGE IN ITS LIFE CYCLE. I AM SURE I WILL NEVER HAVE A VEHICAL THIS DEPENDABILE ever again.. and thats pretty SAD TO ME..."

I would never have anything but a Toyota!

"If someone told me they'd give me $100,000 to purchase just one car, and I couldn't get any change back from the difference of cost, which vehicle would I purchase? Toyota Camry - hands down!!! Best car I've ever own - over two previous Honda Accords and a Nissan Sentra! My Camry is 15 years old now and 119,00 miles and I wish I could keep it as long as I live! Only one very small dot of rust on it too - the BEST, BEST, BEST!!!"
