2008 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I have a toyota yaris and this car is good on gas and reliable. however it went from good to bad in no time. I use my car to commute to/from work and i drove 150 miles per day. I got a oil change on april 16th and the 23rd my camshaft broke with no clear reason why. there was evidence of oil burns and foul play i don't think. I'm thinking that the camshaft was faulty and finally gave out or toyota yaris 2008 is no good after 84,000 miles.

There have been many recall for yaris 2008. I seen many people complaining about break pads or something to that nature.
but if you google recall there have be some recalls.

My car should not be having my major engine problem especially before 120,ooo
