There are many perks of buying a used Toyota Camry for sale. It can last for many years. But it’s also one of the world’s most popular cars due to its reliability and reputation for needing few repairs. If you’re thinking about buying a used Toyota Camry from Hawthorne Auto Square, we’ll look at how many years you may get from it.

How Long Can I Expect My Camry to Last?

A well-maintained Toyota Camry can easily have a 200,000-mile lifespan. Assuming you drive 10,000 miles a year, the car can still last 20 years, which is nice if you buy an off-lease vehicle. But the Camry has also been known to reach the 300,000-mile mark. So, even if you drive an average of 12,000 miles per year, this means the vehicle can still be running after 25 years! 

Considering the average car lasts about eight to 12 years, a used Camry that’s just a few years old is a good buy!

Despite the vehicle’s incredibly high-quality parts and materials, maintenance is the secret to ensuring your Camry runs for a long time. Replacing filters, checking and changing fluids as needed, rotating tires, and inspecting tire wear and pressure are among the most important types of service. Keeping up with the recommended maintenance schedule, including oil changes, can also help your car last for hundreds of thousands of miles.

Tips for Getting a Used Toyota Camry to Last

You’ve found the perfect used Toyota Camry for sale at Hawthorne Auto Square. With regular maintenance, it will likely last for many years while maintaining its performance, handling, and fuel economy (which is 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway). There are other steps you can take to maximize your car’s lifespan. These include:

  • Have Small Problems Fixed Quickly: Visit a mechanic as soon as you notice your Camry not performing as well or a light comes on your dashboard. The issue won’t resolve itself. Waiting for it to go away will lead to larger, more expensive repairs.
  • Don’t Let the Gas Tank Run Dry: Try to avoid driving on a low tank. It can cause the lines to get contaminated, which can damage vital components and reduce the vehicle’s lifespan. 
  • Invest in Quality Parts: Buying less expensive parts when you need a repair can save you in the short term. But cheaper parts usually don’t last as long. Spending more on premium parts costs more upfront, but you can avoid frequent repairs.

What Is the Best Model Year for a Used Camry?

The last major update to the Camry was in 2018 (the next one is expected in 2025), so you should find a late model year that meets all your needs. Its choice of engines, sharp handling, and comfort are just a few perks. The base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 203 hp, but a 302 hp 3.5-liter V-6 is available. In addition to a Hybrid model that gets 50+ mpg on the highway, available trim levels include the L, LE, SE, XLE, and XSE.

The Toyota Camry also has high safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It’s equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ suite of features that includes adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assist, auto high beams, and blind spot monitoring.

Therefore, if you buy a used Toyota Camry for sale, you won’t only get many years (or even a decade or two) out of it. You’ll also benefit from great performance and dependable safety features.
