Getting excited about a Camry

I’ve been with the idea of replacing my car, but don’t want to much money.

I need that I can use to tow a trailer so we can fit all the gear to go camping comfortably for several while transporting two kids and a who never went camping in the with just a 16kg

We’ve already got a super-economical station wagon (5L per 100km) a great boot. But when I how much it would cost to fit a I almost screamed in outrage at highway robbery proposal. I I should resist paying an outrageous price on the very that this would act to such rip-off tactics.

As for the other second hand yes, I admit it, it’s not economical. It’s an old two-door hatchback, which is fine for things but won’t do the job for trips the family. It’s probably to accept that two-door cars aren’t for me even if can fit a surfboard in the boot.

Initially, I was to a second hand French station wagon with a already fitted. A Citroen C5 perfect under ten grand, economical, big boot and super seats. But then common took hold and I started about the repair bills for a car. I thought there be a good reason for such depreciation. Peugeots might be but I’m still nervous reliability.

As for the Japanese they seemed to that Australians didn’t economical station wagons. All on offer that would our needs are SUVs that, of appalling aerodynamics and four drive mechanicals, aren’t

My green dream is of course to own a but I never thought they’d my budget constraints.

On a recent to Brisbane I was struck by how the gas-guzzling and Commodore taxis had been entirely replaced by Toyota I struck up a conversation with a driver about why this was case. His reply was incredibly

They may cost a bit more he me, but they consume a fraction of the the Commodores and Falcons do. With the of kilometres taxis rack up, the savings pay back the extra cost quite quickly. But of importance, he explained, was that reliability was vastly better. The he worked for used to have six staff for car maintenance. Since switched to Toyota hybrids found they only two staff. Plus, having off the road means no income for an taxi licence so better most importantly, means income.

It got me dreaming about the green glow of owning a hybrid.

On a moment I did a web search for second-hand hybrids. I found there dozens for sale with low below $20,000 and some as low as I was dumbfounded. Here is a car the size of a that consumes about the fuel and has about 50 per cent power than any car I’ve owned. Sure, it’s no but its acceleration just a decade and a ago was something people used to brag about.

I began to get excited about a Camry.

Just one problem, three: it only comes as a but I really need a wagon; the pack is laid behind the seat in the boot, preventing you slotting a surfboard through the and into the cabin (pretty a killer for me); and its towing is pretty useless. Bugger!

Toyota also sell a wagon now, but they are as hens’ teeth and vastly expensive.

Why on earth does not make the Camry hybrid as a I screamed in my mind. They exactly bought for style so a load lugger would off current buyers’ needs also appealing to families kids. It would represent a better choice than the that presently dominate the

But they don’t, so I’m with two options:

1) Forget and buy a French wagon that it might emit low CO2 will leave me penniless from bills; or

2) Swallow my sense of principle, and hand over the for a towbar that should $1000 less.

Government buyers through purchasing numbers of hybrid Camries are now hybrid vehicles an affordable and obtainable choice for Australians in the hand market, particularly drivers. But it seems we’ve got some way to go before families tight budgets in the second market can get themselves a hybrid.
