I bought 2007 Camry le at poway Toyota last 7-25-06. About 2nd week of August I pulled the latch hood opener inside my car to check my engine and next thing you know the handle that was holding the wire broke. Now, everytime I have to open my hood I have to pull the wire because the plastic that was holding the wire broke off. I owned a Honda civic for 11 yrs and my hood opener never breaks. I have not yet report this incident at poway Toyota because there was an incident at that time when I serviced my car for teflon and scotch guard and when I got my car back they scrape the bottom front panel of my car and for my inconvenience I have to bring it there to have them fix it free of charge. I was not happy at all at their service after what they've done to my brand new car which I just bought last 7-25 and I don't know what else I would find a defect to my car.
