One of my all time fav Camry. Luxury personified indeed. Amazing car. As GTO said, maintain the car well and it would probably outlast you!!

@camchennai: thats one super deal you've got. It will make new car buyers envious. Toyota engines are known for their reliability. Take good care of her and you will be surprised to see her last really long.

Sadiq is that 3.7 lakh km? Thats one big achievement. This one does deserve an ownership thread of its own.

FYI I have an Esteem Di and recently completed 3 Lakh km. Heres the link to my ownership expeirence: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ip-review.html

Camry for 6lacs. That's really sweet. Apart from some few niggles which you reported, its feature packed. I never knew that Camry could give such high FE.

Yes, the Camry, fortunately for people like me goes for a pittance in the resale market, a friend of mine got the same swooping ship for just 4.5 lakhs, I bargained the price for him. There are simply no takers for a ship sized car in the 2nd hand market which is thankfully infested with hatches or at the most Honda city/civic. Even the Accord comes very cheap if you know where to ask.

2000 model must be an import. Toyota rolled out the Camry here ( as a CBU) only in 2003.

@camchennai - Congrats!!! Sorry, I'm a bit kate, but that is a great car and a very well written initial ownership report.

At 6 Lakhs, it is a bargain. Do keep us posted about your driving and servicing experiences with Harsha.
