Lucky Toyota Camry Buyer Gets His Car For Free

Industry News / 17 Comments

This was no ordinary Camry.

A random 20-year-old from New Jersey named Wayne Maver Jr. got a huge surprise when he went in to purchase a certified pre-owned 2019 Toyota Camry. Though there was nothing particularly special about the black Camry (pictured below), this sale marked the seven millionth Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV) for the Japanese automaker's North American division.

To celebrate the occasion, Toyota wrote Maver Jr. a check for the entire purchase price, amounting to $29,480. But that's not all. The Japanese automaker gave a $5,000 donation in his name to the American Bladder Cancer Society. He also received a $1,000 gas card from CarFax and a four-year/55,000-mile maintenance plan. Vehicles sold under Toyota's TCUV designation typically include a 12-month/12,000-mile limited comprehensive warranty, a seven-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, and seven-year/100,000-mile Roadside Assistance coverage, but extra coverage is awesome.

"I wasn't expecting anything like this," Maver said. "I purchased this Camry because of its reliability, and I knew it would last a long time. Now knowing I don't have a car payment is just incredible, especially as I'm just starting my career. I have an uncle that battled bladder cancer, so Toyota making the donation to the American Bladder Cancer Society means as much to me as paying off my Camry."

Maver's new-to-him Camry looks like an XSE model, likely with the 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 301 horsepower. With used car prices at all-time highs, Maver is lucky his purchase was the lucky number seven million.

"We were incredibly proud to be a part of this milestone for Toyota and continue the legacy of leadership in the Certified Pre-Owned industry, as well as have an opportunity to give back to our local community," said Michael Schwab, general manager of Holman Toyota. "This is a testament to the value and reliability of Toyota vehicles and our commitment to delivering the very best for our customers."

Just last year, Toyota celebrated the 10-millionth Camry rolling off the assembly line in the United States, underscoring the sedan's massive success. It may no longer be the best-selling non-truck in the US, but the Camry is still an incredibly popular vehicle, moving 313,795 units in 2021. Only the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 sold more as non-trucks.
