Question about 2007 Toyota Camry
I have taken my car into the dealer at 30,000 Km and 60.000 km with concerns about the knocking in the engine. Both times they said it was a normal noise. Finally I took it in at just under 100,000 Kms and they said yes there is a problem and it is piston slap. They want to replace the short block but now Toyota will not honour their standard warranty and they want me to pay for 40% of the repair.
Has there been any recalls or other people with the same problem and what do you suggest should be my next action with Toyota. Everything was documented.
There are no recalls, but there are TSB's out on the problem. A TSB is a Technical Service Bulletin. It's a specific repair procedure that addresses a specific issue. Better talk to a lawyer and think about sueing the dealer.
