Dear Jeffrey P. Bezos,

On 08/20/13, I purchased a 2013 Camry model # 2546. I made this purchase at 1719 S.W. College Road Ocala, FL 34471, on 08/20/13, and the transaction went smoothly. Unfortunately, the car has not performed well because the brakes decide when and when not to work. I have had the car unsuccessfully repaired 3 times. Therefore to resolve this problem, I would appreciate if you would exchange the car. Enclosed are copies (keep the originals for yourself) of my records (receipts, canceled checks, warranties, contracts, model and serial numbers, and other actions already taken.) I look forward to your reply and a resolution to my problem, and will wait 3 weeks before seeking third party assistance. Please contact me at the above address or by phone at 352-854-1675(home) or 352-484-5679(cell).
