Used Toyota Camry Car For Sale in Edmonton, AB
Buying a Used Camry Will Save You Money.
When it comes to that time in your life when you have to buy a new vehicle, a tough decision has to be made: to buy used or not to buy used?
Buying new means you are getting a car that is reliable and has the latest technology but can cost a lot. Buying used means you are not spending as much money but there is more mileage on the car. Sometimes it feels like there is no true choice. A game of rock-paper-scissors may be the deciding factor.
There is one consideration that needs attention: vehicle depreciation. With buying a new car comes rapid depreciation. Once you drive it off the lot, your new car can lose a third of its value in its first two to three years. An unsettling occurrence that can happen is if you finance your new car with a low down payment, you will eventually find yourself on the down side of the loan. This is when you owe more money than the car is worth.
This major concern can be avoided if you buy a vehicle that is only a few years old and doesn’t have a lot of wear-and-tear on it. So basically you are getting an new-like car but for a used price.One car that has been on the market for many generations that is a great used choice is the Toyota Camry. 1982 was when the first Camry was put into production so Toyota has had six generations to tweak this vehicle to make it the true master piece it currently is. Its predecessors were the Toyota Celica Camry and the Toyota Corona.
This mid-size car is well known for its fine build quality, peppy performance, decent comfort and solid reliability. This vehicle has caught the eye of budget-conscious families for its reliability, low running costs, spaciousness and in most versions good fuel economy.
No matter what generation of Camry you buy, you will always get a comfortable, spacious sedan that performs reasonably well, but isn’t downright sporty.
