1999 Camry Engine Failure
I am now told I need a NEW ENGINE! The car is 3 years old and at 60,400 miles i.e. the engine warranty just expired. This car has been serviced EVERY 5000 miles since new at the Toyota dealership. It was actually serviced two weekends ago at 60,000 and I was going to trade it in for a Toyota Sienna this weekend! As you can guess.... that is now off.
Such a failure surely is not expected from a Toyota. Up to yesterday, the car gave absolutely no problems and remained a dream to drive. Toyota naturally are coyly informing me that the warranty is up at 60,000 miles (so I am on my own); even though the dealer flatly states it must be a engine fault as the servicing on the car was top notch. I was told today by an ex-Toyota salesman that the connecting rod failure is a known problem for the 99 Camry 4 cyl.
CAN ANYONE COMMENT? I guess I might as well join the line for the (36,000 mile engine warranty) Honda Odyssey when I get back the car to trade in!
