Default Re: Don't shoot your mouth off or else!

Have 97 camry 4cyl with 92k miles. I have had many conversations to th
effect that camrys last.a long time, rides smooth and is lo
maintenance. That may be the case for other toyotas but mine i
starting to disintegrate. Everything was fine up until about 8 mos ag
when i discovered that the oil switch on the firewall was leaking! If
hadn't noticed that the oil level was low i probably would have los
the car. It emits white smoke when started (overnite) so the valv
seals are faulty. The front struts had to be replaced. Recently th
dealer had to replace the manifold pipe(s) which btw contain th
catalytic converter! That alone cost $1200. Toss in another $300 fo
the wiper motor that will not shut off

I think i have learned a lesson. No more tooting about toyota. Detroi
makes junk but it has a lot of competition
Your absolutely right when you say detroit makes junk
north american domestic car manufactures will keep making jun
as long as guys like you". keep buying them" and put up with below than average
quality thats unexeptable. your right detroit makes junk dont shoot your mouth off

I just broke the top neck off the radiator... by leaning on it to get the
oil filter. Honestly, it looks like varnished cardboard. My wife chose this
shopping trolley, I'm going to swap it for a real car soon as I can.
