I went from 408hp Twin-Turbo V8 trash to I4 Toyota reliability (hopefully). Had a 2012 BMW 550 x-Drive for 7 months and as an enthusiast I’d always recommended Toyota but nvr owned one.
Well I’m a DIEHARD Janet Jackson fan (I almost faint at the mention of her name) and id had tix for her latest World Tour for 2 yrs, and of course two days before the event(12/16/17) the BMW broke down AGAIN smh. I rented a Chevy Camaro SS to take me to the event but vowed and said at that moment “i Love two things in life: my Mom and Janet Jackson, and if anything keeps me from EITHER, hunny i am DONE and you’re out of here”. Of course the BMW broke down again 6 days ago and I’d had enuF! I googled “the closest Toyota dealer” and drove there with no intentions of buying a new car, just to look..but I brought home my celestial silver Camry SE that night.
First new car, first Toyota, and first time that I can schedule my Janet Jackson events according to a reliable car. I don’t play when it comes to Janet!! Hope this Camry is as reliable as I’ve seen others rave about, and pleased to meet you all.
Just like most other forums, this thread is where you let everyone know what you did to your Gen 8 Camry today!
Feel free to post whatever you did, but please stay on topic.
..and I know it's early, but we're beginning to set it up because the subforum has been created.
A friend of mine who works in the automotive industry commented to me that today all new cars are pretty darn reliable ( in his words ). The reason this topic came up is I asked him if he thought Hyundais were more reliable than Toyotas ( he being a Hyundai accent owner for many many years )...
Just curious who else out there has run into these issues with this new generation of camry: here is a list of all the issues that have happened in my situation with most being unresolved
1) Transmission: talked about at nauseam with service dept; they wont do anything until...
Anyone else have serious rattles/buzzing coming from the seat belt adjuster located in the b-pillar just over the driver's left shoulder. Took the car on a 200 mile trip last weekend and on coarse roads mine was singing like crazy. The button is just too loose, no spring-load or detent to it...
