Transmission Issue

Asked by Jun 18, 2016 at 10:41 PM about the 2012 Toyota Camry SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2012 Toyota Camry SE is having major
issues. It just hit 100,000 miles, as I just
graduated college in May and have driven
back and forth quite a bit. Anyway, from
2nd to 3rd gear, it stalls and then slams
into the gear. It has a bad shifting issue.
Took it into Toyota 6 times before they
could figure it out. There was a recall on
the torq converter which they originally
thought it was. Now they're saying it's the
transaxle and it will be $5000 to replace.
Has anyone else had this issue? I just got
into a graduate program needed for my
degree in Louisiana and I need a reliable
car for driving back to Missouri. Trying to
decide if I should fix it or just trade it in. It's
completely paid off. Worth $4000 trade in
as is, $8000 if we fix it.

Did you happen to notice and warning lights ON the dash when this issue occurs? Sounds like the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is malfunctioning. Toyota should be "stepping Up' to the plate on this one. You might consider making a LOT MORE NOISE. A RECALL/SERVICE BULLETIN tells the Dealer how to fix a TOYOTA SCREWUP/DEFECT. Replacing the entire Transaxle sounds like over diagnosis to me. .Look in your owner's Manual for a TOYOTA # to call and complain. Good Luck.
