2008 Toyota Camry V6 from North America
Power windows quit working except the passenger rear.
Transmission has been slipping since 15k miles (Toyota seems to think slipping transmissions are normal).
Leather seats are cracked.
Dash is cracking.
Stereo isn't "stereo" any more.
Exhaust hangs low.
Trunk leaked water badly, fixed under warranty.
Bad gas mileage since new. dealer said it normal to get 25mpg on the highway.
Drivers door hits the roof when closing, causing rust.
Check engine light comes on when it wants, never has any codes. dealer doesn't see a problem.
All 02 sensors replaced at 10k miles.
Eats brakes like no tomorrow.
Timing belt broke, taking the head and the motor with it at 37k miles. out of warranty and $6k later.
I loved this car at first. All of my friends told me to buy a Toyota because they last forever.
My Buick had 200k miles and had no problems, and it got 35mpg. This Toyota has been nothing but a headache. The dealer has never been helpful, they have always had a waiting list to work on the car, and then a waiting list to get parts. I will never buy another Toyota again. My next car will be another Buick.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

People are FINALLY waking up. Buick has J.D. Powers number one slot for highest buyer satisfaction (beating out Lexus) and Ford's Fusion is the highest rated car in reliability in Consumer Reports ratings (beating out Camry and Accord).
I've been amazed at the HUGE number of new Ford Fusions in our area. Not a single day goes by that I don't see yet ANOTHER one with a new drive-out tag just in my neighborhood. The used car lot at our local Ford dealers is overflowing with Camrys, Accords and other traded-in imports. I'm very happy to see that not everyone regards patriotism as a laughing matter any more. Maybe buying ALL our products from U.S. companies will return our country to prosperity once more, and the pride of supporting our own businesses will result in a better life for all of us.
