What used Toyota Camry saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Toyota Camry saloon?

The 3.0 V6 engine drinks fuel at 24.0mpg, while the 2.2 improves this to 30.0mpg, but both will drop drastically if the engines are made to work hard on the motorway or mooch around town.

At least Toyota's servicing charges are notably cheaper than for more mainstream executive rivals', and independent dealers will cost even less. Replacement parts are not as pricey as they once were because Toyota now looks on the Camry as an older model. Insurance will be one of the biggest costs, even though the car costs relatively little to buy. Insurers look on the Camry as an oddball and charge accordingly. The other significant cost to bear in mind with the Camry is depreciation - regardless of what you pay for one, it will continue to lose money at a faster rate than most rivals, especially on newer cars.
