Mine needed an engine rebuild with less
than 60,000 miles on it. The car was
gently driven and well-maintained,
using only synthetic oil. I was on a
road trip, seven months pregnant, and I
got stuck 750 miles from home with few
options. The dealership charged me
$5500 to replace the short block -
$4000 in parts alone. There is more to
say about the conduct of the dealer,
but I don't have the space. When I
called Toyota to complain, the company
told me I was welcome to take my
business elsewhere. Toyota would not
stand by its product and did not care
about how the dealership treated me. I
have owned Toyotas all of my life but
will never buy another.
An engine that can take more than
60,000 miles of use might be nice.
