    The Camry is hard to kill. I’ve had family get over 400k before selling them. And that’s with less than routine maintenance and no rebuilds. I didn’t even think that was possible in a fuel motor 4 banger until I actually saw it myself.

    Yeah I've thought about selling it but it's really not worth anything lol. It's showing it's wear though and hasn't been maintained the best either. It's all original even the AC which is ice cold... It's seriously amazing. Engine oil, brake pads, tires, And 1 timing belt. That's it.

    Awesome. Welcome to the forum. Enjoy the new truck. 0% financing makes it easier to enjoy.

    I bought mine new in 05. I make pretty good money but the payment at the time wasn't that big a difference from anything else. I think the sticker on mine was 24k. Now I don't think you can get the same truck for under 30k. Best truck I've ever owned by far, and even though it's an 05 I've taken very good care of it and plan on having it for a long time! Love it.

    As educators we worked several jobs throughout our careers. One was bringing large trucks to Oklahoma City from Los Angeles. I would fly out at 6:00 am on Saturday morning and be home in time for dinner Sunday evening. Taught night classes and was within 9 hours of a doctorate. Oh, and the extracurricular events we administrators had to supervise were numerous. We worked our asses off. No college debt for the kids who are now self supporting. Now I actually work a little for my son. (No pay, just fun).

    Paid off the house this summer and paid cash for the Tacoma. That was the first time I have been able to make a true cash deal. No trade. Well the truth is they gave me an even deeper discount to borrow from Toyota Financial so I did. Then paid it off two months later so they could get whatever. Same dealership chain I drove the trucks for.
