Hello. What are my options to protect the car? There’s a deep dip at the end of my driveway that’s too low for my Camry. Thanks.

Yeah, driving it up at 45 degrees is probably your best bet. Don't really think there's another way to protect it. Alternatively, you could reverse up your driveway. I think the front is lower than the rear.

What? And then scrape driving back down?

  • Take it slow and turn in then back out later

I back down a driveway that drops 10 feet and has two turns and a disaster if you go down the right side. Is it really that difficult to understand you pull in forwards and back out the opposite direction BACKWARDS. Now i doubt you have the problem going BACKWARDS but if so then leave with the front end at the same angle you entered 45 degrees.

You assume he can turn around on his driveway??
Where did I post anything that made you assume that? Sure seems like a simple process being made overly complicated. Instead of driving straight up the driveway approach it at a 45 degree angle then get it straightened out after you pass the depression, do the opposite when leaving. The only ASSUMPTION is you know how to go backwards the opposite way you did frontwards.
