Default Two Camrys

About time I joined, having had Camry over 12 years. Now I just got the old one, 2006, back from our daughter. She got new VW Tiguan. Hopefully it does well. This '06 has over 251,000 miles, and I'm doing a bit of work on it just to keep it up. It drives better than our 2012, and is better made.

A Camry has returned home.

At 250K might consider changing the trains (not a flush) and PS fluids.

As to quality. When you strive to be No 1 in car sales numbers at all costs, something has to give.

Plus the new Camry prices are about the same as they were 25 years ago yet their is inflation devaluation. Something was done to keep the price the same.

The 2006 had transmission flushed at about 150,000 (I think it was?), has done great, think I will get power steering, brake lines and coolant flushed soon. Ethyl hit a deer before we gave it to daughter, and that kind of flushed the coolant, but that was already about 4 years ago. Don't want to flush coolant that way! I'm thinking of selling the 2012 Camry, taking the money and REALLY fixing up the 2006, I like it so much better than the 2012. Maybe dumb to do that... might should just get a newer than 2012 model...

Welcome, wonderful to hear about these old Camrys still going but of course there are some things you must do after hitting very high mileage but wow these parts last long.
