this babe got sold today after 20 years being a part of our family

first off, we were gauging what to to with it so I took a route to couple of junkyards to try to get some $ today; The first one said there is no such market for the car; Next junkyard the guy said $150, saying what i'm going to do with 300K miles vehicle, great; next stop, the guy look the images of the car and he praises the car, offers $300 the most

After some of reflection I decide to put it up on FB market place and instantly the phone was going crazy... long story short we sold it in matter of 2hrs for $500, lots of people were interested at the same time

Pros: strong AC to this day, decent tires, smooth ride, 1 owner, starts every time

Cons: check engine light on, oil leak moderate, many dents and dings, faded paint, and of course 304K miles

and the best part of it, through its life the car did not use no more than $500 of an expected repairs; in the end, the new owner of the car was very happy with the purchase and its overall condition, without a word to negotiate the price down;

the new owner towed the car on his trailer; meanwhile my dad gets my Mazda6, and we hope it will serve him the same

I guess that's about a 2000 year model? The CE was the entry level as I recall.

You can sell a car with a CEL ? Here the seller is responsible for providing a currant smog cert at the time of the sale. If they do not and it fails they can be held responsible for repairs needed to make it pass.

the maintenance was never a priority on the list for this car; of course it had changes of oil or few transmission flush from time to time at Toyota dealership but in past 7 years as my dad was using it, the maintenance was few and far in between; I think its timing belt was not replaced in past 7 years, but the car apparently refused to die; its just that these were basic and solid build vehicles at the time; also, my dad is not proponent of putting good money after bad money grin

Depends on the area you’re in. Areas with no emissions aren’t generally held to that requirement. So glad I no longer have to deal with that.

My mother bought one of those new, LE level. My sister-in-law has it now. Very few problems, so far. The throttle tends to stick closed, then suddenly open more than intended when you push the accelerator pedal harder, resulting in jerky launches.

Will be a good runner for someone who needs basic transportation.

My Camry isn't worth much more, it's in decent shape other than the left rear corner after being rear ended a few years ago. I struggled for a while with what to do with it, as it is an incredibly good car. I just can't make myself get rid of it. I just let my brother drive it.
