I was just looking for a little input from a mechanic or avid Toyota owner.
Yesterday I learned that the leg room in a Camry is nearly identical to that of an Avalon. Therefore, I'll probably buy a Camry and save $200.

Take all internet opinion links with a grain of salt, but not every single Toyota vehicle coming out of the factory is perfect.
Given the choice of...say an equally equipped 2015 Chevrolet Malibu for $13,000 or a 2015 Camry with the same mileage for $15,000, I'll take the Camry 9 times out of 10.

^ Are you referring to ride quality, fit and finish, or options, like adaptive cruise control, heated and cooled seats, etc?
I have test driven two Camry's and I really like the seats on the 7th gens. I attempted to test drive an Avalon, but it was still out for dealer refurbishment, whatever bs that entails.

FINALLY, seller received the title for that M3P. Just booked shipping; waiting for them to set up pickup/delivery times. Hopefully a matter of days now.

It's gonna be close, whether I get the Tesla first, or whether the Insight hits 345,678 on the odometer first. I think it's gonna be the Tesla...but I won't sell the Insight until I hit that mileage, haha.

I didn't slang that much cash.

I mean...it was the most I've ever spent on a car, but since the previous high was $26k for an Evo IX, that isn't saying too much. I'm sure what I spent on this was way less than that if you account for inflation since 2007 (?) when I bought the Evo.

I think Craigslists is pretty close to dead.

Man, I scored a bunch of awesome deals on CList over the years.

It's sad, I refuse to and won't make an account on facebook marketplace.

I really like craigslist. Simple and does what it needs to, nothing more, nothing less. No extra data to collect, pure functionality and purpose.

But yeah, compared to FB, maybe 10% of the available stuff.

all of the above. the avalon is a slightly stretched camry frame for more interior space and then a bunch of nicer creature comforts and finishes than the camry but not quite lexus ES level.

Why, you're only making things more difficult. I've sold 4 cars on FB marketplace, and purchased 3 on there. For better or worse it's one of the best methods right now. I've listed cars on Autotrader and the only parties that reached out to me were dealerships (notorious lowballers). If you list a car on craigslist these days you'll instantly be flooded with scammers. It's insane.

^I've only been on the buying side for big items, I've only ever sold household items. so I wasn't aware of it being that bad.

Perhaps I was being too ideological there, but I just really like how craigslist is one of those places where you don't really have to reveal your identity or engage with big tech, just sell/buy and go on. in this age I guess with all the bots and tech, maybe it is too much to ask for. facebook, sure make a fake account or whatever, but eh. I guess back in the day you also had your address and phone number and all in those big books, so it's not like we were ever anonymous among our communities

Despite Facebook being evil, I like FB marketplace. Scammers are easy to spot.
I have sold a tractor using it and may be buying my first car off of there.
