Default '93 Camry V6 Blown Head Gaskets TWICE!

My mom owns a '93 Camry V6 with less than 110k and the head gaskets have failed twice. Is this unusual or common for V6 Toyota's? The first time occurred back in 2004 at about 64k and the 2nd time was this past Monday with about 106k on the clock.

The first repair was performed by a local Toyota dealer and took 17 days and cost $3,300.00 (US). The 2nd was performed by her now long trusted mechanic and took 4 days and cost $1,100.00 (US).

I thought people bought Toyota's and Honda's because they are supposed to be so reliable and these types of repairs are almost unheard of. She doesn't neglect the car or abuse it.

Let me know what you think.

Shit happens...

Any car can have problems, American, European or Japanese, some brand's reliability is slightly blown out of proportion.. that's all.

Who are you?
