Hey Scotty, want to know your thoughts on two options. First is a 1998 Toyota Camry. It has over 170,000 miles on it and the seller is asking $1500. Doesn't have any issues (or so that's what the Craigslist Ad says). Second is a 2017 Toyota Camry with only 22,000 miles on it, but it's being sold by CarMax for about $18,000 (I can finance that). I've heard that newer Toyotas aren't as reliable as old ones so I just wanna know which one would be the better long run purchase.

'98 only if your trusted mechanic goes over it w/ fine-tooth comb. Engine runs smoothly, transmission too. Thorough OBDII scan down to the nibs. You take care of it, you'll get ANOTHER 170,000-mi. P.S. DIY your own oil, yourself, period. My daily is a 1998 RAV4. Bulletproof. You've been paying attention to Scotty!
