I have gone to another dealership and have been to arbritration to no avail. Toyota is trying to protect themselves from doing a fix for my car so they aren't subject to the lemmon law. It's like I can't get anyone to fix my car or admit I have a problem even though they agreed when I showed them video tape of my rpm flare that it does exist. Don't buy a Toyota

Check out the Sales Stories discussion. He's up to his old tricks there, as well. He finally finished one multi-chapter story (complete with menu details!) but I'm sure he has at least two or three still going.
And it is indeed good to have him back in all of his usual places!

Some of you that want a Camry but are concerned about 4 cyl hesitation or V6 transmissions (neither of which I think are particularly warranted, at this point, btw)--why not consider the Camry Hybrid?
Pricing and features are comparable--the TCH is equipped more similarly to an XLE than anything else (standard auto duo climate control, 6 disc JBL sound system, etc). Acceleration wise, the TCH absolutely smokes the standard 4 cyl because of the additional battery boost (RT had it a 7.7 secs to 60). It gets 36-39 mpg routinely (I get 37 or so driving aggressively) and you are literally giving nothing up except for a little bit of trunk space.
And, best part is--there have been zero issues with the TCH. My dealer has had intermittent vehicles come up with those two issues--though not much anymore--but hasn't had any Hybrid's come in for anything. Its a proven hybrid system (Prius).

I'm sorry to hear that. What else are you going to do? How are you going to escalate your problem?
If you have video, how can they not agree. I assume you've been dealing with Toyota Corporate too. I would threaten to go to major news channels with the info if they don't fix your car. Not that a threat is the best way, but it would likely work.
Let me know what you have planned.

Because American car execs don't think we would like the Japanese model. Why? I have no idea. Different markets "desire" different models. You can always buy one and ship it over here. LOL
I think the camry looks good though.
That vehicle looks almost exactly like the new lexus's that cam out over here in the US.
Another example, that someone told me, is that Japan's "Honda Accord" is the American Acura TSX.....interesting.

Have you taken your vehicle back to the dealer to have it checked out or any TSB's applied?
Have you previously owned a Toyota Camry or any other vehicle with that type of engine?
