Default Looks like I will be saying goodbye to Lexus and hello to toyota

Im fighting with ICBC currently after they lowballed me on my car. i just give up basically. They are wanting to give me after giving me a check for about 7300 and then later on in the month...4500 for salvage..how cheese it that... and Im fighting for my life it seems to get my 13,000. Its basically about 1800 difference. I called customer service with icbc and she is going to see what she can do so either way i will get enough to get me my new car that I went to look at today..........2009 Toyota camry. It has pretty much every option except the navigation. Black on black leather seats 6 disc changer, silver trim blacked out windows etc etc. It will be cheaper on gas...Im assuming its V6. It looks a lot like my Lexus too.
I just cant find another car like mine. Its rare and I know it but it does not matter to ICBC. The toyota I negotiated to 13,500. It has low ks on it too so it will have to work. Ive tested the corolla and they all feel cheap and boxy. It had better be cheap on gas the camry or else i will be choked.

No RWD and a choppy V6, but Toyota reliability.

you are going to notice a big difference in interior first and foremost..

my friends newer corolla is cool, but when i sit in my 02, its like a night and day difference

A friend of mine has a 2009 v6 toyota camry. He has my lex badges on his camry too. Lol...... major interior difference and ride quality. Its totally day and night difference. But the camry does have power when you open it up. As for exterior looks, I think the camry has a lot of potential. Hope it works out for you.

Personal opinion, its hard to go back to a Toyota after experieicn a Lexus, I have owned my first car as 2003 Corolla S and 1989 240sx to 2004 Subaru WRX to Audi A4 to now,

2003 E46 M3, with 2004 Lexus GX 470 and just got a 2000 Lexus GS 400 for my fiancÚ...Lux is Lux...

You guys are comparing a Corolla to a Lexus, The Avalon and Camry completely decked out will be as nice as a Lexus.

I dont want an old man car. That is the problem. OHHH i hate the dash to a 07 camry..It is U G I L E E!!!
I definately would have a navi installed. Plus the seats dont have the curve that my lexus did. It was form fitting to my body. And the ride is STIFF. You can feel every bump. I miss my lexus sooooo bad.
Ive been looking for days and i want a cheaper ride but all the perks without old man and I dont know what to do.

No.... My fiance has a 2013 Camry SE and my mother had a 2002 avalon..... Avalon was a joke but my fiances Camry is much more modern (obv) but I prefer my GS. New avalon takes the cake though, but thats as much as a Lexus lol
