Dad just got a new car so now I get his...

15 posts in this topic

My dad just got a new Forester (tried to get him to buy a Vue but failed) so now I get his 2000 Camry!! Sure it's a Toyota, but it's a decent hand-me-down and a great first car for a 17 year old. I would take any car that didn't cost me anything.

Being as it is a Toyota...I am still going to go out on a limb and tell you Congratulations on a set of wheels to call your own! There is nothing better in the world than your own set of wheels. Enjoy, and remember the shiny side stays UP.

My first car was a 1982 Honda Accord Hatchback gold on gold, 5 - speed with a leaky sunroof and flatspotted tires - and I loved it. I will never forget the first day that I was able to drive on my own - popped in a Depeche Mode cassette and started my journey down life's highway. Aptly, the first song that played off that cassette was the Behind The Wheel/Route 66 mix. Loved driving ever since.

Good luck with it and enjoy.

Nothing wrong with a free set of wheels. Plus that's probbaly the best looking generation of Camry. Looks like it's in good shape to. Got more photos? COngrats and enjoy your first ride, no matter what it is it'll always hold a special place because it is your very first car.

4 banger or 6?

Cash in on the high resale value, and get something cool.

Just sayin....

Congratulations! I don't think anyone could get a better 'first ride' than a Toyota Camry. It's reliable, well-built, and it ain't gonna go too fast.

Sell it! Use the good resale value as a down paymen on something nice and new :)

IMO, the last thing a 17yr old needs is a new car, or payments.

So true. It's hard to find any owner reviews on Edmunds, for example, that DON'T complain about the build quality and problems of new ones compared to previous models.

That gen wasn't exciting, but was a terrific car throughout. Congrats on the reliable and refined as nails freebie!

Random observation--for some reason, at least in Colorado, it seemed to me like 75% of the Camrys of that generation were dark green.

I'd like to say congrats. That's a great first car to have. That gen was probably the best one for the camry. Enjoy it.
