Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #3

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


My wife's 2001 Toyota Camry has an air conditioner odor. We have been lead to believe that it may be caused by the A/C getting too cold, freezing up, and actually causing mold in the A/C system. She has driven the car for 2 1/2 years and now has cancer. We have been unable to do anything to rid the car of the odor. Doesn't exposure to mold, if so, cause health problems? we spent a year trying to locate an odor in the car. Replaced mats, detailed the upholstry, etc.

When the air conditioner is running and I am stopped at a stop light the break pedal will drop approximately 1 inch in about 1 second. This has occurred on numerous occasions since I purchased the vehicle. It is an unsafe condition and somewhat scary. I reported this to the dealer and they said that it is normal. I find this incredibly hard to believe. I asked them for documentation to prove that this behavior is normal but they would not produce anything.

Vehicle stalled at 60 mph. Dealer could not find a cause. The A/C and the fun selector malfunctioned, but the dealer was unable to fix it. The vehicle starts and stalls immediately. The dealer installed a new circuit opening realy and the problem was solved.
