2015 Camry vs Altima

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am in the market for a used car and I found this very nice
dealership that deals exclusively in 1-3 year old cars. I have
picked out a 2015 Altima and 2015 Camry, and am
choosing between the two. The Altima has 20,000 miles,
while the camry has 27,000. They're both base models and
look excellent, however the Altima is a Special Edition
model, so the rims are a bit nicer. The price on both is
pretty identical at 13,000 (however the camry has been
sitting in the lot for about a month, which is longer than
what their cars stick around for, which is why the price
dropped to 13000.) I was wondering which car would be a
better value, and which one would last me the longest time
with minimal repairs. Thanks
Some info that might help: Both are clean title and one
owner cars, and have had regular maintenance done. The
Camry is out of its bumper-to-bumper warranty though.

Tom, could you give me some reasons as to why you would choose the camry? The only thing holding me back from buying the camry is the fact that it hasn't sold already. And do you think the Nissan is a good value if the Camry wasn't in the picture?


Altima's have the nasty Nissan CVT which I would avoid like the plague.

What are your thoughts on the camry?


One of the most reliable cars available. Purchase an extended warranty if you are worried but I would bank the money instead. Do have a mechanic check it out and get a CarFax.

Toyota without question. Have it looked over as F_O_R suggested as that may be the best $150 you ever spent.
