Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Camry LE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 109,000 miles

90% of all Camry's are still on the road, since when? Under 110,000 miles and a hole blown in the engine. Not low on oil, not abused. How does this happen? Bought Toyota because it lasts. Maybe not.

My girlfriend just bought a used 1999 Camry, The car runs like a top,So you think...

The car passes inspection it's running smooth and quiet Life Is Good...Ya RIGHT???

8 Days deep going to get off the highway the car grunts groans and says I AINT PLAYIN NO MORE... I think I'll puke out all my oil and coolant all over the road. and it did.

It gets better,Ya think ya have at least a 30 day warranty well you do if you have 25000 miles or less according to Mass Lemon Law.

without buying an extended warranty the dealer is under no obligation to fix the vehicle,so My Girlfriend Is Pretty Much SCREWED Do Ya Feel Our PAIN Cuz We Do

$4625.00 might not sound like alot of money but it is when you don't have $4625.00 to loose. MAN I'M REALLY FEELIN THE PAIN
