Scotty, I am currently looking at buying a 2006 Toyota Camry Solora SE with the 2.4L Engine and 5 speed automatic Transmission. It has 111,545 miles. What is your opinion of the car? What are the common problems that you expierence?

Scotty , i bought a 1999 volvo s80 t6 with 140k miles for $200. The previous owner didnt know anything about cars let alone it had a blown head gasket and wanted it gone so i offered him $200. It only has a blown headgasket and a chipped valve, and im fixing it myself. All in all i will have only spent $500 for help and parts. And I know it has a weak gm transmission. Was it a good buy?

it's more appropriate to look at the depreciation as a percentage. You lose 34% on the Toyota and 45% on the Mercedes

Buying not a brand new car? If all the people get into mentality on that. We all drive a junk. What kind of opinion. Its a good to advise people to choose. But dont impose. And dont be bias too much to toyota. Yes toyota has a lot of parts in the market. But watch out theres a lot of toyota parts where a knock-offs.

Nun Ya (2 months ago)
C'mon Scotty. How can you say in one video that Kelly Blue Book is a scam, but then in this video say to buy a "good" used car you should look up the Kelly Blue Book? Still to this day I haven't even heard you mention a Carfax or Auto check report when buying a used car. Don't claim to be "sponsored by the truth" when you spew lies and contradict yourself all the time. My advice to you would be to stick to the mechanical how to videos because that's what you do for a living. Damn near every video I've seen of you talking about purchasing a car from a dealer has been so wrong it's frightening.

Hey Scotty I've listened to your advice over the past few years and went with Toyota. Actually a used lexus. I know your not a huge fan of luxury cars because of pricey repairs. I got a 2016 lexus is 300 22,000 miles. Do you think it will be reliable over the next several years? I love the car. It's pretty much my dream car. I value your opinion and appreciate all of the lessons. Take care and have a blessed summer

pawel3003 (5 months ago)
There is probably no more boring car than Toyota. For luxury car you have to pay more, it's understood but german cars specially after 2000 are money pit machines, especially Land Rover or any British cars. These days cars are made for 5 or 6 max 8 years - as long as loan is finished, so you go to buy another one. And yes, Japanese cars are mostly boring but are most reliable.

In a nutshell, buy a Toyota, and stay away from Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
Baltazar Hunter (5 months ago)
What was the problem with the Mercedes, it lost half it's value just like the Toyota did as well.... Plus the mercedes lost more than half because the market for USED sports car isn't as high as the market for used daily drivers so naturally a higher demand... Not the best point there Scotty.

Petteri Arola (6 months ago)
There tons of absolutely fabulous dream cars out there, but they cost millions! F.e. Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Maserati, Ford F-xxx models, all MB C, E and S and sport models, all BMW, Jeep Grand Voyager, Hummer H1(used car), Cadillac, etc. list is endless. Not to mention the real beauties back in 50´, those american beauties with wings. We have them here too, they cruise here all weekends in the summertime.Those kinds of cars were real cars, but Mercedes was the first, the pioneer. So naturally MB(midsize and full size) are even nowadays something unique and Toyota is just a car. Comparison is vain. Its question of feeling and driving a car. You go and sit on the drivers seat. What is the feeling then? Thats why the MB is, not on the same planet as Toyota and MB knows how to make cars for over 100 years.
