Best Car I've Had for Cheapest Cost
I purchased a 2006 V6 Altise Sport off a colleague at work - 168,000 km for 5000 after he was offered 3000 trade on a new car purchase.
I faultlessly drove this dutiful car from Roma to Moranbah and Roma to Brisbane fortnightly. I drove 35,000 km a year in the time I had this car - a mammoth task. I used to most affordable tires, servicing was routine. I never spent a cent more than the essentials, in the country I got 800 km out of a 60 litre tank, in the city closer to 650-700 from premium. It used to overtake roadtrains with a satisfying pu...lse at about 140 kw, an underpowered V6 when compared to Australian stablemates the Commodore and Falcon, but with 10 times the build quality and longevity. It even survived a Roo strike, safely stoving in the hood and needing minor panel replacement. When I moved back to the city it once again performed admirably, driving 800 km a week as I commuted from Toowong to Coomera daily. The one breakdown I had was due to a flat battery. I kept driving it until 285,000 km at which point I purchased a Toyota 86 to treat myself after such a sensible and frugal investment. This car saved me thousands. My little sister still drives it - 340,000 km and only now showing its age at 200,000 km more than a regular car. In stark contrast the Ford Territory I drive now, at 5 years old and 80,000 km at purchase has not hit 140,000 km and is plagued with electrical faults, constant cut outs in power under load when the gearbox shifts down a gear, bugs and problems. I've spent over 10,000 fixing a car I paid 4 times more for. Next car? Another beautiful, no brainer Camry. Life is too short to waste money on a depreciating asset used for commuting. Do yourself a favour - if you find one of these with under 180,000, buy it knowing you will spend about 5000 on a car that can last another 100,000 km on a shoestring.

excellence car I 've ever have before
In the past 35 years , we 'd been owned many cars , including used Ford , BMW , new Commodore, Honda and Mazda...vv, then I bought the Camry Hybrid Avv50R in 2016 and again in 2019 my wife she purchased the Camry Hybrid Axvh71R (the order was need 7 months waiting ) , so far we are very satisfied with these two cars.
Purchased in April 2019.
Grunty touring sedan with all the bells & whistles
301 BHP. 1,600 kgs. Do the maths. That's more power than a turbo charged Audi RS3 5 cyl/2.5 litre, though admittedly with less torque. Weighs, what, 100 kgs more than a Golf GTI.
On road, it ought to howl, but the 8 spd transmission takes the edge off what could've been a Grand Tourer had it been avaialble with an option for a manual transmission.
Nonetheless, a very smooth ride. Slightly lower, longer and wider than your standard Camry so you won't be taking speed humps @ 60 like my '94 Camry used to.
On the outside, everything was fine with r...
Purchased in January 2021 at Peter Warren Automotive.
After the death of Ford and Holden, I was looking for a new sedan. I settled on the Camry ascent sport hybrid. I went down to my nearest Toyota dealer for a test drive and fell in love instantly.
It's comfortable, it's intuitive and for a medium to large sedan it handles itself well in small places.
The fuel economy is outstanding, the sticker says 4.2L/100km and even with some spirited driving I still avg about 5.1L/100km. The hybrid system is almost inaudible but still packs enough punch to get you around a road train or back on the highway quickly.
My family of 4 fit in with no problems, both teenagers have plenty of space to stretch out in the back even with both front seat all the way back.
Do yourself a favour and give it a go
Purchased in April 2020 for $40,000.00.
Well Built Car and Must Consider!
Bought the 2019 Toyota Camry this year.
Excellent and well built car. Comfortable and this model has a very good safety features, although really need to learn how to drive in the first week (too many buttons and need to use to without hand brake and just using a Button.)
No Complains and fully recommend to purchase it if you plan to have a medium sedan family car.
Purchased in September 2020.
Most economic and reliable sedan in the world
I usually use the car for working, family transport
I use the car every day
I get this car every two to three months once, mechanic never mentioned about any issues after using for more than 5 years
Purchased in January 2015 at Total Tools WA, Canning Vale for $26,000.00.
Car perfection - least drama! Total reliability! Perfect interior! Great power for its class!
NOTE: Cars I have owned previously include: Mistubishi Mirage, Ford Falcon BA, Toyota Camry Sportivo, Aurion V6, Camry Hybrid, Nissan Qashqai TS Diesel 2016, Nissan XTrail - 4 WD 2014, Toyota Camry Altisse 2009, Toyota Camry Altisse Hybrid 2015, Nissan Qashqai TI 2015... but the Toyota Camry HL Hybrid is the very top and favourite for so many reasons, that you tend to take it for granted just how excellent it is. I wished I could chat to Elon Musk about Toyota and get him to partner with their Company as the global leader in Hybrid manufacturing up to this point.
Purchased in May 2020 at Pacific Motor Group for $15,990.00.
Very economic to run
I find it economical to run this car. I have driven Toyota Camry in the past and went for the upgrade with the same brand as I know this is a reliable car and runs in excellent condition.

Purchased in May 2020 at Toyota Dealers for $38,999.00.
Hate my car
I think this car chews fuel and the body is to large for the interior size. I would not recommend this car to any of my friends or family. Always having issues with engine
Purchased for $22,000.00.
Have been using Toyota Camry Touring for a year and as known for Toyota it has great reliability with only basic maintenance of oil/filters change. fuel economy is average depending on how you drive and power is more than enough for the Australian roads. Only disadvantage is when driving on slippery roads you feel the car as if it slips off with the road a bit and requires a firm grip on the steering wheel (even after tyres rotation and wheel alignment), an issue which was not noticed with my previous Toyota Corolla 2005, and Toyota Aurion 2008. However, got used to it after a while and have not seen any other issue with the car since the date of purchase.
Purchased in April 2019.
Great economic car for the whole family
Great family car, very easy to drive and serviced friendly in terms of cost and servicing technical, Toyota is very detailed with their service and provide great experiences.
The car has all its basics especially when driving, it’s smooth and not noisy in the system, unlike other sedan cars
Purchased in March 2010 at Toyota Dealers for $36,590.00.
Very reliable vehicle
Bought this car in 2013 and it is used everyday for work, family transport, weekend outing.
Has not skipped a beat, has not had any issues.
I get is serviced as per the log book and no major issues when brought in.
The only thing I don't like is the boot lid, if you don't lift it all the way up and you're parked on an incline, that boot lid is going to come back down and hit you in the head.
Purchased in February 2013 for $25,300.00.

Fuel- Efficient, Reliable and Great Quality
I use the car for work everday and occasionally drive up and down from Melbourne to Sydney. It is highly fuel-efficient both in the city and for long journeys.
Never once in 2 years of driving this car have I ever experienced a problem. I service this car as frequently as required by the logbooks and its at a capped rate at Toyota. I have even brought it out to a third party mechanic once just to double-check that it's in perfect condition and was told that the mechanics at Toyota are looking after my car well.
Would recommend to anyone to buy a Toyota Camry Hybrid
Purchased in January 2018 at Toyota Dealers for $28,000.00.
Best reliable vehicle
I used this vehicle for personal and commercial use. I did drive Ola with my camry and it was good on fuel. It drives so smooth and never let me down. Highly recommended vehicle.
Purchased in December 2019 at Cradle Rock for $16,000.00.
Described as a 'sports tourer' (in original car reviews/brochures) purchased a 1996 Vienta from a one owner for $950. Had 212000 on the clock - 2 months later I had added 4000 to reach 216000. During this time the car has driven perfectly, apart from slight brake shudder when going down steep hills. However, that can be almost eliminated clicking the Power assistance off (located on auto gear change stick). This seems to increase acceleration - moreover slows the motor down (especially useful if towing). Braking then becomes almost unnecessa...ry on steep descents. On the flat drives like a limousine easily cruising at 110. Changes gear with a smooth positive thud. There was a small hole in the plastic radiator expanison tank (not surprising after 26 years).. Managed to replace this with an after market new tank for $40. Clicked it into place in just a minute or two. The car is spacious with comfortable seating (has a rear armrest) and a fairly quiet drive. Nice rumble and a kind of turbo sounding humm from the V6 at take off / slow speeds, but not a speed machine at 1.5 tons. Probably a great tower. Large boot that easily takes a bicycle (front wheel removed). More space can be added with rear seats folded, as boot extends. Fuel consumption is OK on long trips about $40 for 250Kms @$1.30AUD / litre). Takes standard / cheapest unleaded. Town driving is more costly @ around $10.00 per 40 kms. It does have overdrive which I have not yet tested and may improve fuel economy further on long trips. The previous owner replaced the cars cigarette lighter with a USB port - this is both much healthier and very handy. As per my perfectly working SANYO transistor radio (1976 model) - yesterdays excellent workmanship often easily outlasts todays flimzy fad designs with endless touch screen gizmos..
Purchased in March 2020 at PRIVATE for $950.00.
Well built pleasure to drive
Used regionally and regular trips to Melb, driven most days, purchased after much research and 7 trouble free years out of a Corolla definitely consider if you want a car with reliably and good safety features
