2007 Toyota Camry 4dr Sedan

158-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed automatic FWD

9000 mi   It was for the Hesitation Issue on the I4/5 speed drive by wire. This was done the day I sold it back to the dealership and bought a different Camry. I bought a XLE Camry. It had 6K miles and was the General Manager's Demo. 
2000   Took my Camry in to inspect a "acceleration problem". The dealer stated that the problem was normal since the Camry uses a "drive-by-wire" system and that such a problem will go away once the Camry's DBW system "gets used to the way I drive". 
2480   When coasting and trying to reaccelarate lag in accelaration. Like the first 3 to 5 percent of throttle was nul. Toyota reprogram PCM. Known defect TSB 2650 and TSB EG 056-06. That fix the problem, accelaration is now normal. 
2480   Still the same problem as before:

2002 Toyota Camry 4dr Sedan

157-horsepower 2.4L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

92000 mi   The computer had a trouble code of P0420 which is the catalytic converter/O2 sensor malfuntion. I am driving my usual 550 miles/week until Dec 20 2007 when I will have time to do something about the problem! 
95000   CEL came on and displayed Code P0420. Replaced both the Oxygen Sensors. Light reset and came on again. Now in hot hot weather (above 55F) it comes on) otherwise remains off. Took out the + battery terminal to reset the CEL and hasn't come on since. 
102000   CEL on with trouble code P0420. Had gone off but started coming ON again on intermittent basis. have decided to replace the Catalytic Converter but NOT DONE yet. Cost is the main issue. Can't decide if I want to fix or sell the car! 
119000 US $84 CEL came on and the dealer ran a diagnostic. They told me that multiple parts in the emission system needed replacement at an estimated cost of $1900 (including parts, labor & tax). CEL wasn't reset. It went off in about 1 mile!!!
