The car has potential. The problem is that Toyota has forgotten that a customer is important. I had a problem with my brakes, they were wearing out on the passenger side faster than the driver side. My mechanic brought this to my attention during a routine inspection. He expressed great concern and recommended that I have it checked immediately. Toyota response was that it was in 'spec'. and I paid a $50.00 inspection fee. When I complained they suggested that the factory rep look at it in several weeks. After looking at the car the Factory rep stated that it was in 'spec'.
During this process I was pretty much treated as if I knew nothing of cars and that I should just be comforted by the fact that the experts advised me that all is OK.
I checked alot of places and was univerally told that this was a problem that required looking into. Everyone was concerned except for Toyota.
I bought this car because my 1996 Camry was bullet proof. The brakes on that car lasted over 100k miles.
I sold the Camry last week and don't intend to buy another.
