2004 Toyota Camry LE from North America
I bought this car because of its reputation, but now I am not sure about its quality
Toyota Camry 2004 was just diagnosed with a steering shaft problem. Unsettling clunking sound that could be felt at mainly low speeds while turning or going over speed humps or curbs. Under warranty the part will be replaced. This is the 3rd Warranty item in the 25 months of ownership... and I only have 17,500 miles.
Overall the car is adequate transportation with plenty of room.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

We had the same steering shaft problem with our 04 Camry. I had it back 3 times before they acknowledged there was a problem, even with the service bulletin. I was also told it was not a safety issue. It was pretty obvious Toyota's corporate policy on the thing was "hope the customer doesn't notice it before warranty runs out". We did notice it and had it fixed under warranty, but just barely. I thought Toyota was better than this. (?)

Bad news for me. I have the same problem, but my car is over the warranty. Does anyone know how much it will cost to fix it?
