2009 Toyota Camry Q&A
2009 Toyota Camry Question: Damaged head gasket in a 2009 car???
My car was perfect until two weeks ago when I heard water running when I turned the car on. I took the car to dealer a week after because it started to heat up. The dealer told me the head gasket is damaged and they are confirming that this is cover under warranty. My car has over 30,000 miles. Its an engine problem in a new car. I dont understand why they are trying to find an excuse to not fix it. Please help!!! - Lytte
I don't understand your question. You say in your question that it is covered under warranty. If you are past the 3 year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty then it is on you. 2009 is not a new car. You need to follow your factory maintenance schedule. This could have been avioded if you did. - PARTS GUY
it sounds like you overheated it. thats why a head gasket goes bad. it does not matter how many miles you have on the car. when it blows, it is for a reason. they may be waiting for an answer from the factory whether they will cover the repair. it may fall back on you due to driving it overheated.
