    Camry Owners Please

    Yes, I am still going over & over all the numbers involved in our possible new vehicle purchase. What do you actually get for gas mileage? And what percentage city vs. highway is it based on? Thanks again (and again)!! We also drove a Prius which was pretty cool with all the bells & whistles but were told they have not had a financing incentive yet of any kind and rarely even a cash back because of it's popularity.

    We had a 2001 Camry w/4cyl. Got about 28mpg not babying it. Mostly driving 75-80 from Johnston to downtown.

    Just got rid of an 04 Accord and I liked that car a lot better. It also had a 4cyl and got about the same mileage but had more power and less float.

    The new Prius is supposed to be very nice. It really comes down to whether you want to pay $4-5K more for lesser of a car but that gets 15mpg better. I'm guessing the Prius will have better resale value but I bet you can get a big discount on the Camry.

    Both were 100% reliable.

    Re: Camry Owners Please

    I drive a pile '96 Camry and my wife drives an '07 Camry we got new. Totally reliable and both get right about 30 mpg.

    The ol' 96er has 271k miles and is still going strong.

    $5,000 less for a car buys a lot of gas.

    I also get about 28 mpg highway on my 03 Camry. I've also not had any problems with it.

    Re: Camry Owners Please

    That's interesting. I would have thought both the Camry and Accord would be low to mid 30's.

    Re: Camry Owners Please

    2004 Bonneville V6 - 25-26 mpg when pushing it pretty hard while using 10% ethonal. Surprised that the Camrys don't do quite a bit better than that...

    I have a '97 w/150,000 miles - gets about 22mpg here in Mpls. (6 cyl and also going strong). Nice to see I can expect 270,000+!

    If you drive the speed limit on highways you can easily get 35mpg but who does that?

    The 2010 front end looks like a clown car but that just my opinion. From what I've heard the Mazda3 (I have a Mazdaspeed 3) gets a little worse gas mileage than cars like the Civic, Corolla, etc but is a lot more fun and if you get the hatch a lot more room. I would expect it to get 32mpg since it's a compact.

    I assume you mean on the highway?

    Heck the corvette will get 30mpg on the highway. It's all about gearing.

    Camry's are a little bigger now. Carollas do get in the mid 30s.

    I think my wife and I's car average around 30 because we do mostly highway. We drove to KC and back on Saturday and we got about 33 or 34 with ethanol which is pretty good IMO.
