I bought a 2001 Toyota Camry CE at the start of the summer and have been using it to drive to work every day, 25 miles one way. The car was at 135,000 miles when I bought it. Initial check up with the mechanic indicated there were no issues and it was good to drive on the road.
Last week, I was driving on the highway and my car slowed down when I was driving on a curve but it was fine once the road straightened out. The car broke down a few minutes later. Took it into a mechanic’s shop to get it checked and he told me that the car needs a new motor because the timing belt is broken. Not sure if he is right though as I’ve read differing opinions if the car has a non-interfering engine or not. Any advice?
