The 2014 Toyota Camry is a popular midsize sedan, but not everyone wants to make the large investment required to buy a new car. In that case, one of your options is to buy a used Camry instead, and you will have many years’ worth of cars to choose from.
Although it is always good to have an idea of how much a used Toyota Camry is worth, you will not find one right answer to a question about a car’s value. That is because it can depend on a wide range of factors, including the maintenance and general condition of the car, where you are located, the trim, accessories, and even the color of the vehicle.
Two of the most important factors that will determine the value of a used Toyota Camry or earlier model are the number of miles that it has and its overall condition. In general, cars with fewer miles tend to be worth more, and this is because they have been used less. This in turn leads to the assumption that they will need fewer major repairs in the near future. Used cars with more miles cost less to make up for the future repairs and the fact that the car probably won’t last as long.
The condition of the vehicle is equally important as its mileage. For a car to have a higher value, it should be in top driving condition with all of its major components (such as the engine and brakes) fully functional. Although interior and exterior conditions are less important to the value of the car, a used Camry that is clean can be worth several hundred dollars more than a dirty one.
When you start looking at used cars, you will notice that ones with higher costs have either maintenance records on hand or are certified used. These two classifications serve to provide the buyer with assurance that the car is in good shape. Most of the time, a 2014 Toyota Camry or earlier model that has had regular maintenance will be in good condition. Similarly, looking at certified used cars ensures that the Camry is in good working order and doesn’t need any major repairs.
Another factor that can influence the value of a used Toyota Camry is the trim level of the sedan. Higher trim levels will cost more money, but because the car is used, the difference in value will not be as extreme as it would for a new car. Despite this, you should expect to pay several thousand dollars more for a used Camry XLE than a used Camry L in a recent model year. As you move back to older models, the price difference will decrease further.
With these factors in mind, taking a trip to Toyota of Boerne in San Antonio, Texas, to look at the used Camry sedans can give you a good idea of exactly how much a used 2014 Toyota Camry or earlier model will be worth.
