14:51 - So theoretically if I went and traded in a Fusion and purchased lets say a Camry - 90% of all autoworkers in America would receive a pink slip??? Really all 14 million (your numbers - not mine) autoworkers would be lose their jobs??? That doesn't sound right to me. Perhaps in the "Twilight Zone", but not in the real world.

This is melodramatic. Domestic lovers seem to be rich in that department!
Of course it escapes them that the very companies that control those 14 million jobs are the ones to blame for the instability and not the import buyers. Seems they should be writing letters to the CEO's of the big three and ranting to them about the possible loss of 14 million jobs, and not wasting our time reading their cut and paste repetitious posts about it!

So true! If you aren't here to discuss the Camry as a car and not a political statement, then move on...

Thank God for sane and sensible commenters like you. How people can keep cheering for our own country's destruction is beyond me. So said it all. THANK YOU!!

This is a CLASSIC example of obviously NOT reading the comments. NO, 14,000,000 are employed in U.S. auto-RELATED jobs, not as AUTO WORKERS. And yes, if we root for destroying our major industries, MORE than 14,000,000 people will be receiving pink slips. In our area many thousands are laid off who have NOTHING to do with the auto industry because laid off auto workers can't buy OUR products and services. It causes a ripple effect that hurts EVERYONE eventually. I hope you guys enjoy your imports while we still have a country to drive it in.

10:33 Your purchase is yet another one and it adds up across the nation. Why put even one neighbor friend out of a job. I bought 2 new domestics, no more new Hondas.

The area where I grew up employed thousands of local residents in our rural area at 3 large factories making shoes and clothing. When those items started being imported from other countries, all three factories closed and it put a terrible hardship on our community. Now we are seeing the very same effect in the much larger auto industry. We see people on this site constantly attacking everything made in the U.S. and cheering for the destruction of 14,000,000 auto-related jobs. You'll probably get what you wish for with that sort of thinking.

A relative bought a 2009 Camry last summer. He drove to Florida and returned last week. While in Illinois, the heater blower started to squeak. He turned the fan off ad the noise stopped.
He stopped at a Toyota dealer in Illinois, and they worked on it and lubricated something, and told the owner to not put paper napkins in the glove box, because they get sucked into the heater blower, causing blockage and potential failure.
The blower still is making a rubbing noise, and he is wondering if it needs more work. Has anyone had this type of problem?
He was very pleased because the dealer did the work for free.
