Hey Scotty! I have a 2016 Camry on a lease that is about to end soon and I'm trying to decide would it be better for me to pay it off in cash after the lease ends, get a new Camry, or an old Camry. I remember from your videos that you said that older cars are more reliable than newer cars today and I originally got my Camry with the intent to keep it in the long term (I got a lease instead of financing it to see if I would change my mind later on). However, since I heard from not only you but other people in general that older things (not just cars) tend to last longer because they have less technology than what current cars and other things have today. Because of this, I'm really beginning to consider getting a Camry or some other model Toyota from the 90's or 2000's since I don't care if my car looks newer or not. I just want a car that will last as long as possible. Of course after looking at numerous resources such as Consumer Reports and KBB the reliability of Toyota in general has not changed despite having more technology in their newer models according to them. Basically I'm trying to figure out what would be the best option to get a car that will last as long as possible.

realize old cars can last, but 90s are pretty freaking old now. If you like yours, buy it off lease
