problem #4

Jul 192018

Camry SE 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,777 miles

I was very upset when I had my first issues starting around 102000 miles and it was noted that my car needed an update, so I got it done. Then it started slipping again around 105000 miles took it to the dealership and still noted it was an update needed and the prior company I took it to did not notate my car issues. Now at 124777 miles my car began to do the same issues and I was told I need a new transmission....very mad! I bought a Toyota because of its track record and now I paid more money for a car that did not last very long.

Camry LE V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 176,000 miles

Toyota’s aren’t really known for these kinds of issues but I did enjoy the car before this started. Hopefully someone else can take this as a note of caution before buying this year (2012) of Camry.

Camry SE V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

My Camry is grinding on acceleration between 20mph and 50mph. From what I've read about the 2012, it's the transmission converter and will cost $3k+. I bought a Camry to avoid this kind of problem, looks like Toyota let me down on this one. Oh, and the power locks haven't worked for over 2 years.

Camry LE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

Scary that this is a low mileage car and it hints at transmission trouble. SPREAD THE WORD. And stop Toyota from skating on its reputation.
