I have the following issue with my 2018 Toyota Camry and need some ideas or advise on what to do:
In the morning I parked the car and turned off the engine and the car started to roll forward.
I started the car and put it into reverse to repark the car. The car continued to roll forward every time with a knocking noise heard from underneath. Had to use Emergency park brake. That afternoon while driving the vehicle to the dealership to get checked it started making high pitch squealing noises and driving funny.
I was told the transmission would need to be dropped to investigate the issue. I’ve now been told after removal of the transmission that the Park Device is damaged. Metal shavings and other components were found and I need a new transmission.
Is this true, what could have caused this? It’s only 1 ½ years old. The car was not forced into park while moving.
Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
