The wife is still driving my 2000 Camry after 11 years, and we got 91,000 miles on it.
I bought one after driving one as a rental for a week in Florida. Even though my dad worked for GM, my mom had toyotas. From the 1976 Celica, 1983 Tercel, and 1989 Corolla Wagon, they were all pretty decent cars.
That said, I hate the 5th Gen Camry styling. The 6th was pretty good, and I'm not sure what to make of the 7th Gen.
In all the years we've daily driven the 2000 Camry, I've had to replace the battery once, the brakes and tires, recharge the AC, and fix the exhaust pipe once.
Just seems to be normal wear and tear, and still rides like it was almost new.
