I own a new Toyota Camry 2014, driven 6mths w/ 2100mi. Car shut down on me while driving, almost was rear ended. Dealership said nothing is wrong, pick up the car.What should I do? I'm 2scared 2 drive
It could have been a fluke thing. Keep an eye on it. If it continues take it back to Toyota. You may have to make a pest of yourself. Intermittent problems are very hard to diagnose and fix because it never happens at the service facility. Don't be afraid to drive it. You'll have to continue to drive it to see if there's a pattern of when it stalls. Is the engine cold or hot? Is it damp out? Is it only under acceleration? Only when coming to a stop? Once you figure out the pattern it'll be much easier to fix. Hopefully it was just a hiccup and it won't happen again. HTH. -Jim
Interesting....a new 2014 with only 2,100 miles. Excellent inquiries from js08016. Did you buy this car "Brand New" with near 000 miles on it? Was it a demo? Does this car sit around a lot or do you drive it often. Vehicles that are not used often do develop these hiccups as noted above due to lack of use, environment, wild life issues. I would be tempted to use this vehicle often but close to home. As noted above....you might have to pester the Dealer and threaten a buy back procedure through Toyota.
Abs module. Ask the dealer to check it.
Thanks for the answers. To answer the above question, this was a new car with 0 miles when I bought it. I drive it everyday especially since I work 7 days a week, but I mostly used it to go locally. Basically, everyone's advice is to take back the vehicle and see when it happens again, right? I will be talking to the Manager at the dealership later, so I really appreciate everyone answering my question. Thank you.
You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim
Keeping us up to date would be appreciated.
Will keep everyone posted. Thanks.
