Camry Vs. Odyssey

I’m trying to save up money to get my first car. I am trying to decide whether to get a 2001 Toyota Camry CE or a 2002, 2003, or 2004 Honda Odyssey EX-L.

The 4th generation Camry came out in 1997, when I was seven years old. I remember when they came out. I thought that they were really cool back then. I forgot all about them until now. I never thought that I would want one of these cars later on in my life. Fast-forward fourteen years and here I am trying to decide what my first car should be (according to my situation) and this car is one of my choices.

The 2nd generation Odyssey came out in 1999. Like the Camry, I thought that they were really cool back then. I didn’t fall in love with the Odyssey until 2005 or 2006, when I started looking into them more. There was someone that I knew who had an Odyssey and it really reminded me of them. I also have a friend who I’m close with who loves Odysseys.

I am torn between two loves. I want them both and I wish that I could have them both but I can only choose one right now. I can get one right now and the other one later. I am planning on collecting some Odysseys and Camrys, later on in the future when I’m able to. But even with that in mind, it’s still a hard decision.

Both of them will need my needs, and they fall within my budget, but I need to choose the car that is right for my situation right now. The car that is the most inexpensive to own, I am going to get (first).
