Why won't my Toyota Camry start?

Toyota Camrys & Flywheels

If you're interested in buying a used Toyota Camry, you can rest assured it's one of the most reliable used cars on the market. Here's one tip to keep in mind, though: Camrys are known for eventual flywheel problems. Essentially, the "teeth" in the flywheel break and this causes the engine not to turn over properly on ignition. The cost to fix a Camry flywheel is usually under $500. This isn't a bad price considering the Camry's reliability means you probably are not paying for repairs that other used cars require.

Keep in mind that Toyota backs their cars for up to three years or 36,000 miles, so if you encounter flywheel troubles within that time or distance frame, it may be covered under warranty.
