As to price, it should be relatively cheap. But do you think you'll still own your '98 in 2008?
You asked if I expect to own a 98 in 2008 ...... Answer = Yes (hopefully).
For Laughs here is my recent ownership history : 98 Camry = New
85 Camry = 16 years old and used daily .... 185K mi.
83 Camry = Sold at 14 years & 186K
67 Ford Station Wagon = 17 years & 180K ..... to Junk Yard!
73 Ford Station Wagon = 16 years & 164K .... Gave (For $10) to a CA Poly Student who painted it green(House Paint)for a Homecoming parade!
I use em to the bitter end!
Thanks for your research ..... RDavid ....
My '80 Volvo 240, purchased used 18 years ago, just passed 230K miles, still going strong.
I would expect a Camry to last also; it just seems that so many posters here trade in their cars after only a few years.
I think most people buy a new car, sell it several years down the road. It still looks pretty new then. Then someone else buys it, drive it until it looks dated. Then that person sells it, and some poor guy/studient buys that oldie up and drive it until the bitter end. Camry last a long time, and usually the new car buyer gets tired of the looks before the car wears out. It's this tendency for people to sell their old car and buy a new car that gives us a used car market that's 3 times larger than the new car market.
42000 mi for 13900! You seem to have a better deal. Its a good and powerful engine..(quiet too)
Had it inspected at a Toyota service center (at my expense) as part of my road test before buying it. Only problems were the alarm and it didn't come with a CD player.. Good luck!
In addition we have seen numerous TV ads offering a $750 rebate. Does that still apply in my area New York City for a Camry Le. My dealer says he has not heard of it. They say ignorance is essential to survival in certain situations. Any help in the above questions will be appreciated.
We recently bought a 2000 Camry, and we only had to pay tax and license fees in addition to the price we negotiated it down to (in CA). I asked ahead if there were any advertising fees or other fees, and they said no. Maybe the fee you are talking about is the Destination charge? It's listed as "Delivery, Processing, and Handling Fee" on the window sticker, and is included in the price on the window sticker. This you do have to pay. It's about $455.
I'm dragging my feet on buying something primarily cause I just hate spending the damn money on a car. I'm also at a quandary on where to start the negotiations. I know what Edmunds says the trade-in price is (about $11,500) and what the retail price is (about $14,400). Since I keep cars a long time, I'm a little uncertain where to start. Any suggestions?
Do the new 4 cylinders have them? I read a report somewhere which described the new 4 cyl as "rough".
Thanks all the good people whop share the information in these sites.

I recently purchased a new 2000 Camry LE V6 a couple of weeks ago. I now have about 200 miles on it. So far I've noticed that while driving, the steering wheel seems to be slightly off centered. 99% of the time the steering wheel is turned slightly to the right while driving on a straight level road. The car also feels that it drifts to the left the few times I've taken it onto the freeway going up to 55mph. Do I have an alignment problem? Is everyone else's steering wheel horizontal when they are going straight. This is somewhat annoying. Is it maybe the awful General tires that are on the car?
Secondly, does your rearview mirror vibrate when you have the radio on or a CD playing? Whenever I look in the rearview mirror and the radio is playing, everything in the mirror is a blur due to the vibration. But I must say, the radio sounds awsome. If this is a sacrifice I have to make for a good sounding radio, then I am happy.
Other than the alignment issue, this is a nice car!
As for the mirror, I haven't seen that happen in a Camry, but if you have it really loud and the bass cranked, it's very possible to get this problem. Maybe the mirror isn't glued to the windshield as it could be. Have that checked too .
Hope that helps!
I took it back to the guy and he said there's a leak somewhere and he can't do anything about it.
Has anyone experienced a/c problems? If so, what type and how was it rectified?
I know it has a 2.0 liter engine. so I'm not expecting it to be used on the Camry, but I just want to see if you have any insider information.
I've already seen the RAV4 at my local dealership, plus I've also seen an ad about it in this month's Car and Driver.
I bought my 2000 Camry about a month ago and I live in the "Water State" of Florida. During the recent floods, my car sustained interior water damage and the Air Bag light came on after I had driven through many puddles of water. Has anyone experienced this type of damage to their car, if so what can I expect when I get the car back from the dealer?? All of your comments are appreciated.
She would like to move quickly on this. Anyone able to help me out would be greatly appreciated.
We have a manager that just came back from the dealer meeting in las Vegas and he saw the new Camry. He said the changes are as radical as the differences between the '99 and '00 Avalons. He is not technically minded enough to really probe on the differences but he thought it looked great.
As for the 2001s, we don't have enough yet to discount much below $700 over invoice. That will change in a month or two.
Happy motoring Bob
We will be getting a new car next year (my wife's graduating), and we'll get middle class car to replace my wife's 1996 Mazda Protege DX (still got that hand cranked window, manual door lock, so un-2000-ish).
She is graduating in May of 2001. The new RAV4 (she like s a little SUV over a sedan) and 2002 Camry (my pick) would definitly on the top of the list.
If you could get any more info on the 2002 Camry, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
I hope to get some pictures from this show soon and I'll post anything I see.
In the mean time, we do have a limited edition 2001 coming out soon with a two tone paint job and a few other trick features that should spruce things up a bit.
Just got back from dealer after they put new v-6 rear springs on my 4 cylinder Camry that had very weak springs. The heavier springs fixed the trouble and were done under warranty. It took a little arm twisting but this must be a common problem as I've heard it mentioned on a couple of other boards. If anyone out there has the same problem talk to your service manager insist on a fix.
Very recently I started noticing how transmission of my Camry-Y2K w/7K miles is shifting from 1st to 2nd gears. It only happens if I drive slowly. It was very smooth before. The smooth drive was one of the main reasons I’ve bought this car. Is it normal? Thanks.
Could you please suggest what is the best possible price I can pay for Camry LE 2001 Model? My dealer has agreed for $18400 for the Base version without Options. I need to close the deal in the next 2 days. I would appreciate any suggestions.
odd dollar package. But it offers a ton of extra:
Keyless entry, power seat, JBL sound system, CD
player, floor matts, and the most important -- ABS. At $369, it's a steal. Be sure to get it. It will at at least that much to your resale value
down the road.
I think just about every Camry LE gets it. It wouldn't
be too wise to miss out on it. Good luck.
