#2 - Water Pump problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
The vehicle involved is a 2007 Toyota Camry. In March 2013, I took my car to my dealer for a scheduled oil change and also because I had noticed a ticking noise under the hood. The service technician stated that because it was a rainy day, he could not hear the ticking noise during his test drive. I was still concerned, and asked him if he was sure it was ok for me to continue driving it because I heard the noise every time I took off from a stop. He said it was fine to drive and to bring it back in if the noise continues. In may 2013, at 64,756 miles, I brought the car in again because the ticking noise was continuing and seemingly getting louder. A different technician checked it, and afterwards I received the devastating news that my car experienced "internal engine failure" and needed the engine replaced. I was given some price estimates for used engines, none of which were warrantied for more than a year. When I informed them of my inability to afford an engine replacement, Toyota suggested that my car undergo an oil consumption test by my dealer, which I did. After 1,000 miles, the dealer determined the car was not burning oil excessively. Toyota then offered no further assistance; the dealer then offered me a discount on the engine replacement. In all the years I owned the car, the check engine light had never once come on. (the only other issue I had had with the vehicle was a water pump failure on 5/22/2012, which was replaced at 56,891 miles. ) I have all documentation showing that timely oil changes were performed for the entire life of the vehicle. This water pump problem happened on Tue., Mar. 19, 2013.

#4 - Water Pump problem of the 2003 Toyota Camry
In November 2012, I was told by my the dealer that there was a leak in my water pump in my 2003 Toyota Camry. I got a second opinion and I was told that my water pump had a slow leak and that I should get it repaired. In December 2012, my car ran hot and was smoking really bad. Dealer stated that my I needed a new engine. I asked what was the issue and they stated that my head gaskets were blown. I asked the dealer could they repair the head gaskets and the answer was I needed a new engine. Got a second opinion who then told me that I had stripped head bolts and car could be repaired. Had car repaired and the car is running fine 173,000. I started doing research on the internet and literally I found hundreds of people with this same issue. I proceeded to call Toyota (twice) and the second call did admit that there was a service bulletin issued in Nov 2011 alerting the dealers how to repair the stripped head bolts. I could not believe how many people were having this issue and the fact that this is a defect in the construction of the 2. 4 engine for the 2003 Toyota Camry. Toyota will not acknowledge that there was a major defect with this years Camry. And what is further more dishearting is that the representative at Toyota said that I should expect to make repairs on my car with the type of mileage I have. And I do agree but I should be able to get more without the defect. Is there any way I can get Toyota to acknowledge the defect by filing this claim and in addition to the other claims on this website. It was Dec. 28, 2012 when this water pump issue occurred.
