Lemon law

Well it finally happened. My fiance's car, a toyota camery, finally had the 5th and final problem that is makes the car meet the lemon law requirements. The car only has 33,000 miles and it has had some major work done to it. Now we have to hope that we win in the law suit since that is how the lemon law works. You have to sue the manufacturer for the defects. Wish us luck.

must have gottne the 1 in 10 million that is screwed up. I heard that was a 0.01% of engines that have had sludging issues in the valve train on the 2.2L I-4. Is it related to that? More common with people that go to jify lube and get the cheap non-synthetic oil they normally put in there.

I thought all Toyota's have a 50k mile warranty.... but it is limited. What are the problems you have?

Personally I'm shocked you have that many problems. Are you sure it's not partly the fault of the dealer you take it to for service? My parents had a Chevy dealer not put tranny fluid back in when they changed it on a Prism...which basically is a Toyota.

You want to know what went wrong?? Ok here goes.

The rack and pinon suspension blew out.
Cracked axel
blown transmission
(All of that happened while driving on the highway without warning or reason. The mechanics looked at the car and said they had never seen anything like it. This also happened at 17,000 mi.)

2 separate occasions O2 sensors have gone out.

The driverside window control panel had to be replaced since it broke for no reason.

2 days ago the passenger window motor shorted out and had to be replaced.
