When I was a really young, my mom had a Toyota Camry, and man did that car troop. I don’t ever remember having a single problem with it; we even got sideswiped once and the only issue was a dent and some scraped paint. It lasted my entire childhood almost, but the family had outgrown it’s holding capacity by the third child. At this point in my life, some model of Toyota would probably best suit me due to their low maintenance needs (mechanically) and their good gas mileage. In my experience Toyota makes reliable and practical vehicles.
After having searched far and wide, I came upon a 2007 Toyota Camry XLE at Carfax.com. It was listed at $9,500; no accidents (on record), 71,402 miles. This seemed like a fantastic deal to me; affordable, reliable, and it gets 21 MPG (city) / 30-33 MPG (highway), this car is everything I need.
