Because the Camry has treated us so well, I think we'll go with another one even though I don't like the new models as much as my old one. My hubby has been pounding the pavement looking for a new well-priced one. He's gone to three different dealerships and gotten three different prices, trying to get close to invoice price. I've been surprised by the difference between that and the sticker price. If you know of any good Toyota dealerships in Iowa or Nebraska, please drop me a line. Here's hoping for another reliable car and 200,000 miles!

The time has come that I've been dreading—looking for a new car! After 12 years and nearly 220,000 miles, my 2000 Toyota Camry is ready for retirement. Apparently, I'm not the only one keeping my car longer than usual. A recent NBC nightly news edition revealed that with the poor economy, people are keeping their cars longer than ever and that the average age of vehicles on U.S. roads has increased to 10.8 years. I'll be sad to see my trusty Camry go as it's been so reliable. After all, how many cars can you get more than 200,000 miles out of these days? Mine is still running well at 218,676 miles but with the high miles, we don't feel we can take it on long road trips anymore.
