Default 2004 Camry Speedometer failing intermittently


Check Engine light came on and I went to AutoZone for a reading which
indicated: Vehicle speed sensor A malfunction - Code "PO500"

I think the car is out of warranty.

Would this be an expensive repair?

I am not too happy with this car, 1st warranty repair was for a
squeaking clutch, 2nd warranty repair was for TSB ST002-04 or
car drifting & pulling to the left.


So far this car has been more problematic than any other of
the 6 new Toyotas I have purchased over the years.

Is Toyota quality going downhill or did I just happen to purchase
a lemon?

I wrote the message below this morning.

Went to do some shopping after writing the message and the speedometer
is functioning and to top it off, the "Check Engine" light is no
longer illuminated.

What gives?

I have a mystery on my hands and I am wondering if the situation will
repeat?

I have a funny suspicion that this "problem" will recur.

In US Warranty is 3 years or 36K miles --- so is it actually out of
warranty?
