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.

2001 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 200,000 miles


I am the 2nd owner of this car, and I have loved it until the day the accelerator didn't work. I was driving down a mountain, not using the accelerator until I reached the bottom of the hill. When I tried to accelerate the pedal would not move. I coasted into the nearest turnoff. The car was running, I put it into" park", while still running I checked to see if there was something (floormats) blocking the pedal. There was nothing. I tried mashing it as hard as I could, no movement. I turned the engine off, waited a few minutes and restarted. The pedal was ok, accelerated just fine. I believe I rebooted the computer. I carefully drove to my mechanic, he checked the "plates" and other possible problems and could find nothing wrong. I called Toyota customer service, they advised taking it to the nearest dealer. I was told it was not on the recall list but I could bring it in to be checked. I was afraid to drive the car that distance over 200 miles roundtrip. I later received a small check from "Toyota economic loss settlement administrator " for a class action lawsuit settlement. I did not cash it. I was advised by my insurance company not to drive the car. I would like to sell it but ethically can not because I don't want somebody killed or injured in it. I have tried several times at the dealership to find a solution. But they claim this problem couldn't happen and were not helpful. It could be sold to a junk yard at a loss but again, it could be sold from there and driven. Any advice?
