The 2006 Camry is known as a gen-5 model. It is now two models series out of date. However, unlike subsequent Camry models it offered a choice inline 4 or V6 cylinder engines.

As a family hack, I would avoid the higher fuel consumption and higher servicing costs associated with a V6. The 4-cylinder engine has been used right up to the end of 2011, unlike the V6 which ceased production in 2007.

The thing about vehicle registration costs (and most other government charges) in Queensland is that they are always at least 10% more expensive than the last time they were paid. Thanks ALP.

Andrew 357: to answer your questions

looking at MCV36R and the ACV40R


Thank you for advice I was already weighting up the pro's and Con's of the V6 such as Higher rego, insurance, and running cost and so on,

as for rego I guessing that was going to the answer lol,

Is there any thing else that should know about owning a camery being it be first one? from what Ihave read they very good, though and so thanks for advice so fair hope to get more .

In the 40 series, you get a Camry as 4 cylinder and Aurion as a V6.

Get the Aurion with the V6, you'll love the power.

It has the same "claimed" fuel economy as the Camry, just different looks.
