    1 out of 100000 probably not made in japan too
    meanwhile this is the case in 1 out of 10 cars in any other European/Korean/American brand
    it's important to buy a totyota that is made in japan

      People keep saying that but how do you actually do that? In EU Toyota has had factories for more than 20 years, I don't think its possible to find a made in Japan Toyota unless you actually import it from Japan.

        Just depends on the model. If it has a 17 digit VIN and it starts with a J, it was made in Japan.

    Any car with 213k miles is gonna need maintenance and some parts replaced. This sounds like a solid deal.

    It's a bunch of maintenance on a car with 213k miles on it. And based on the fact that this person willingly paid someone to do $6k worth of work on a $4k car, some of that shit was probably not even necessary and they knew he was a rube they could fleece.

    The only problem really I see with this is that they could have done all of that themselves for probably less than $400 in parts & materials.

        Struts are the most expensive thing on that list and rockauto has them for like 50 bucks iirc.
        My family has 3 of this generation camry and the cheapest parts on rockauto will last 100k miles
        One camry about to hit 350k miles.
        One around 280k miles.
        One around 225k miles.
        I've never had a failure from the rockauto parts.

            I've had FCS struts on 2 of my camrys for about 8 years/80k miles and 3 years/30k miles. I still get compliments from people about how nice the car rides. I think they transmit slightly more road noise into the car though, so there's a slight drawback for saving about $300 per strut compared to OEM.

        I hear a lot of weekend mechanics talk like this.
        >yeah the shop wanted to charge me $2500 but I did it myself for $400
        >bought the shittiest parts possible
        >still rounded down by a few hundred
        >took him 40 hours to get everything done
        >inevitably will take it into the shop a few weeks later because he messed something up
        It's like bragging about how the fish you caught last week was THIS BIG

          Weekend mechanic here. I replaced my clutch a couple months back. Took me 10 hours start to finish and $400 for the clutch kit. Mechanic would've charged $2500 minimum including the extra parts markup. $2500 - $400 = $2100 I saved. That's $210 per hour, which is pretty good for a blue collar guy like myself.
          Also I didn't screw anything up because I'm not moronic and followed the service procedure to a T.
          I've saved literally tens of thousands of dollars maintaining my and my wife's cars, neither has seen a shop in years.

            Weekend mechanic here. I recently replaced my frame for about $3.50. Took me about 15 minutes. Shop wanted to charge me $1,000,000. I didn't screw it up either because I'm so smart. I've literally saved billions with this one simple trick.

            Great, except you're lying and I'm telling the truth. Do you want to see photos of the car apart and receipts for the clutch kit? I have both you moronic homosexual.
            What are you even arguing here, that it's impossible to save money doing auto repairs yourself? Do you think one can save money mowing their own lawn or painting their own house or are those impossible too?
            I guess this is your moronic wrenchlet cope because you're too much of a homosexual to be able to pick up a socket without pissing yourself.

            >Mechanic would've charged $2500 minimum
            What the heck, i just had mine replaced for 650eu which included the basic service (oil filter, air filter), break pads and some worn bearing in the engine which caused it leak oil on the spark plugs and costed 150eu for that part alone, if it was just the clutch i'd probably pay half of that.

            I'm guessing you're the same homosexual. So you're saying a mechanic replaced your clutch for like $200? Have you priced a clutch kit with flywheel? They're typically more than that. What third world country are you in where mechanics work for like $5 per hour?

            you're just being trolled by someone using extreme hyperbole to discuss the fact that some people do, in fact, lie when asked how much money, time, effort, and skill something takes. you (presumably) didn't make it up, since you're acknowledging the man hours to do the clutch pack. I know a few homosexuals that constantly tell me how cheap and easy it is to replace x or y, which is usually true, but is almost never as true as they say (it'll only take 30 minutes bro; I got my new strut for $15 which is totally as good as OES). outside of specialist tools and general competence, it will always be cheaper to do something yourself, but so many c**ts out there make it sound like you'll save an obscene amount of money when you'll simply be saving a modest amount

          What kind if a moronic take is this?
          My 65 yearold mother changed out an alternator by herself in about a half hour by just following a YouTube video when I was out of town.

            Your mother is a prostitute and slept with the mechanic next door in exchange for swapping out the alternator. Why do you think she waited until you were out of town?

    It doesnt matter what car you buy
    if you buy a neglected one, you will have issues.
    I mean apparently my alfa 155 is reliable vehicle but mine is pain in the ass and I already paid more in repairs than i paid for the car.
    but its clear that it has been heavily neglected.

    My Black person in Mohammed, it's a 20 year old shitbox with 200k on the clock. Camrys are one of the default "I just want a car" options for people who don't have a clue about maintenance. They're all beat to shit and have missed dozens of oil changes over their life.

    That's like $500 worth of parts. If you're going to drive an old, high mileage car you can expect to occasionally need to fix things, and should prepare to do it yourself or pay up. Half of the things on that list aren't even necessary to keep it on the road, but are nice to do to make the car drive like new again.
