I drive a Solara (80% parts overlap with a Camry).

6 years, 155K miles. Aside from scheduled maintenance the only thing it's needed done to it is alignment, tires, and wiper blades. Still on the original set of brakes, although I'll probably have to have them done by spring.

You couldn't ask for a better daily driver, it's completely dependable and low maintenance. First time I've had a car that didn't need a major repair before it was paid off.

When I was in high school I had a job building wiring harnesses at the test facility in Northern VA. Cool place. A test crash in a quiet space kicks ass.

That said, I drive a 1992 Camry. Beat to crap, looks like hell, doubles as my hunting truck, plows through brush & mud and other drivers go out of their way to stay away from me. So far, I'd say my Camry is bulletproof.

I love to hate on Toyota and their appliance cars as much as the next guy, but they did give us these this year:

I think everyone is going to suck at that test until they start to engineer for it.
 
The F-150 was a deathtrap before they started testing it.  Everyone gets better once their class starts getting included in tests.

This is just a regular offset.  The kind everyone in a Prius walks away from.  This 2003 F-150 blew the door off and killed the dummy.
