Hey BAC, you need to let people in here know what the year of ur car man. 2000, 2001, 2002, what?? GT, GTS. Cuz if you got 2000 like me man you only got 5yrs or 60,000miles on the PowerTrain Warranty dude, if you past those two Toyota ain't paying shit to fix ur car. Do what the other guy say, Play dumb man, said you downshift to slow down and something went wrong. Tell them to check it out and ask them if the warranty will cover it. chances are they well, do it b4 ur warranty ran out dude or else u're really in deep poop.
