Grown man loyal Toyota fan sitting here crying. Just came back from the dealer after trading in my lemon.Trans burned out-yes a Toyota Camry with a burnt trans at 110,000 and I babied the car for the 3 years it lived.Quote was $4500 new $2000 used trans.This was after $1300 blown #1 manifold 3 months earlier and the blown oil line $400 mentioned here before. Car was a gem up to 75,000 then my check book opened. Trans slippage between 1st and 2nd gear occurred since new and 1 day trans just blew. My letter to Toyota will sit on the pile they already have. Too big too fast is causing Toyota to become Chrysler. FYI-dealer bought the car-$7000. I bought it new for $28,000 3 yrs and 110,000 mi ago
Style. Utility of doing many things with 1 type of car. V6 power. Great mileage. AC/heated comfortable seats. Very comfortable/roomy for 4 adults. Assumed reliability. Closing of the competition gap good for us buyers.
Radio horrible. No fold down seats. Trans horrible.Oil line/manifold breaks and recalls galore. Lousy paint. Fix our broken hearts. Go back to doing what got you to #1 and keep doing it w/o letting greed, growth ,and assumptions of your customers.Your grand father Mr Toyoda would not be proud of your work
