    And now I know! Thanks for the info! I had no idea.

    My earlier comment was my go-to joke when I meet a British. I apologize if I've offended you in any way.

    We had a '03 Camry. We gave it to an adult daughter..today in fact...That thing will run forever. It has 158,000 miles(254276km) on it. The only major issue was the starter went out a couple of times. But now it has a OEM(orginal equipment manufacturer) starter. That too will last forever.:D

    Not a Problem! Some people get confused by the British Manner, we insult our friends as a term of affection but call you 'friend, mate or pal' as a final warning we are about to unleash hell on you! If we really like you, then like a shy teenager we will ignore you completely!

    Then he said how was i. Puzzled I asked why? He said I obviously been in an accident, as my steering is not in the right place! Lol

    For the most part, in the US too. My standard quip is "The best thing about a Toyota is, it runs forever. The worst thing about a Toyota is, it runs forever." I like having an excuse to own different cars. :)

    When my father returned to Nz in the early 80's he bought the 6gen Toyota Corona.We replaced the engine in it 10yrs ago with 380 000 kilometers on the clock.It stii goes with the odometer curently showing about 615.000k.The only thing wrong with them was the timing belt breaking at around the 80000k mark..At the same time when we were replacing the engine in the Corona he bought a Toyota Rav4 which i understand is a Camry engine..The odometer is at 254000 and is still on the original starter motor.
