Yes the car troubles probably came about because the car is not used to 1000km/day trips perhaps. It was only driven around Sydney. It is a hassle and I hope I see the end of the unreliability so uncharacteristic of Camrys.
It is damn hot here - was 34C already by 9:30am. Now edging 39C. The NW winds have hit and this to me indicates it can hit over 40C.
