1998 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan

Review

The most recent, and most inconvenient issue that has arisen concerns starting the car. Not the car actually starting, but the key not turning the ignition even when the wheel is straight, foot is on the break, doors are locked, and seatbelt is on. It has been taking about 4 mins. worth of attempting to start the car (even to run on the battery) before the key will budge. A very annoying and time consuming problem...especially in the hot summer.

Favorite Features

Great gas mileage, reasonably smooth ride and accelleration response. Runs fairly quitely, and moderately comfortable for long trips...nothing extrodinary, but still better than mediocre.

Suggested Improvements

This key problem sounds like a simple case of the teeth on the key being word down to the point where they no longer raise the tumblers far enough to work. If you don't have another key somewhere in a drawer, or something, that hasn't been used so much, then go to a dealer and ask them to make a new one for you.
