Should I pursue this high-mileage 2011 Camry?

What am I doing outside of the Lounge? Can I ad-hominem here?!

I am pretty sure that I mentioned this somewhere, but I mention many things in various places:

2011 Toyota Camry new tires & breaks well maintained,regular full synthetic oil changes, there’s some minimal cosmetic things if you look at the pictures, the seatbelt light is on for the passenger I’m not sure why but does not effect anything. Great car just getting into something a little bigger, asking 5K obo
Oh good! It breaks well!

Can you expect people to take care of their car if you cannot expect them to take care to write clearly?

I am going to guess that the seatbelt light indicates an expensive problem.

I didn't think the cosmetic damage was minimal when I first saw it, but I think that I did worse to my rental!

In [almost] no particular order:















That scrape isn't too bad and the car sure was clean four months ago! When I realized how old the ad was I scanned her profile to see if she mentioned selling it.

No, but she sounds aggravating.

I asked and she replied "No I ended up waiting."

That could mean anything, but the ad is still up, so I am sure that she waited for an offer near her asking price.


As you can clearly see, Kelley says that it is worth between $5,169 and $7,138; approximately $6,154, and that is in good condition.

I don't know its mechanical shape, but I would describe the interior and exterior as beautiful--except for the scrape.

Maybe the engine is wearing out or the seatbelt light indicates a real problem.

I finally looked it up. All that I find is "Fasten your seatbelt, idiot!"

I want to have Mom negotiate having her mechanic look at it. Sure, her mechanic told me "I'm not fixing your car! You fix it!" However, aside from charging $50 to replace an air filter, he has always been good to her.

I say it's a $3,500 car, max. She will be waiting for some one to finance it at that price. It's not like the economy is hot right now.
If it didn't have a scrape on the side and she wanted $5,000 and I needed a car that destroys the planet it would be a top contender.

Hybrid versions, half the miles on them, aren't a lot more expensive around here...Oilpan's assessment seems about right.

Edit: $1500 '07 Prius with fewer miles on it just popped up here...if I hadn't bought the insight...

I agree with the sentiment that it's a bit pricey. I saw someone selling a '93 camry with 90k miles for 2500. I thought it was insane to pay that much for an almost 30 year old car... but I guess a sucker is born every day.

Shop around. Fair market value of my Volt is half that asking price, I'll never sell it.

Is that below the KBB estimate like this one?

Are you guys telling me to pursue the 2009 that needs repairs and paint for $4,000? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...4994849902516/

Maybe this 2009 with [allegedly] more miles than the 2011 for $6,000? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...9173955728084/

Perhaps this 2007 for $4,700? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...9070292828043/

Ebay Motors shows 251 sold 2010 - 2012 Camries. Only two sold for less than this woman is asking. A hybrid with 246,000 miles sold for $2,850 and a normal one that is salvage sold for $3,150 with 142,165, but sold twice just before that.

The next-highest mileage one had 162,903 and sold 5 times, with the highest being $7,800.

Or do you guys think these are legitimate?
2010 for $1,399: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...2365661784462/
2012 for $1,500: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...8712731526586/
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...7349996335838/
2014 for $1,213: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...8905606561512/
2017 with 130,000 miles for $9,000 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...3544712358162/

This is a Corolla, right? 2004 Ford Focus for $2,200: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...53644383114369
Quote:
Market place won't let me select Toyota so...2004 Toyota Corolla. Mechanically sound. New battery, newer tires, starter, brakes. No radio
They sit on a throne of lies!


Of course, I would vastly prefer a Corolla, but the only one for sale is this 2005 with 204,000 miles.

What is with Toyotas with over 200,000 miles?!
It has a radio, though: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...69179500779697

Facebook is where all the scammers and people that want too much for their car went when Craigslist started charging $5 to list a car.

That is Lexus money: 2010 Lexus ES350, 171K miles - $5,000



https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...ting=288507133

Or for a bit more

2011 Prius III, 166K miles - $6000

2014 Camry 140K miles $6,000
