Most reliable car I've ever owned.
By ngroeling on
2006 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this car on a whim because my previous car was totaled and my rental car was due the next day. It was expensive and loaded with everything that I didn't really need, but I went for it anyway. Almost to it's 90k mark, it has still not had any major problems. Some maintenance shops tried getting more money out of me by telling me the transmission and radiator fluids need to be flushed, however, this is false. They were fine and the next place we went to thereafter said they were. So do be aware of places trying to get more money out of you by doing unnecessary fluid flushes, which can often damage the car. Other than that, it's doing great and I expect to get another 100k out of it.
seats are uncomfortable during long drives, but I've been in worse.
Depends on how long you want to keep it. Flushing not really necessary, but a drain and fill of the transmission/cooling system is pretty inexpensive and will take the Camry to 300K miles if you so desire.
