Like many other posters, I bought the Camry based on their reputation but it has been a HUGE dissappointment.
Multiple recalls, extended parts warranties, snap-on visors and floor mats falling apart, new struts at 25000, a hard shifting transmission and now I find out about the sludge-prone motor, just to name a few.
The most frustrating aspect is that Toyota refuses to be accountable for their mistakes unless forced to, then they still claim 'driver fault' on issues like brakes, sludge and visors.
The Service Director at Pat Lobb's Toyota in McKinney even brought up "lemon" in our conversation.
But then decided it couldn't be since it made it to 128000 miles.
hmm...Very Low Standards!
Toyota should become accountable for the goods you manufacture or they continue aiding the growth of the American carmakers.
