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.

I own 2001 Camry le. Fortunately no accidents happened but I'm tired of fixing it's wheel alignment problems. The car pulls on left. I replaced every possible parts suggested. I did the alignment from several places such as sears, Firestone. They don't find any problem in the alignment report but when I drive, the car heavily pulls on left side. I have to really hold the steering tight to keep the car on road or in a lane..

All tires on the vehicle are badly worn. The vehicle was taken to dealer who stated problem was due to wheel alignment. Firestone bridgeport tires.

At highway speeds, particularly from 45 mph to 65-75 mph, steering wheel on 2001 Camry le 4-cyl vibrates. Tires and wheels have been balanced many times but still no remedy. Alignment was also performed many times but with the same problem. Went to Toyota dealership 4 times, with the same cause, dealer tentatively fixed issue but restarts (vibrates) after a few miles. Steering wheel seems loose (about to fall off) and moves the car slightly to the left. Visual vibrate of steering wheel is seen and of course felt. This vibrate not seen in my previous 1998 corolla at the same speed range. Also, other generation 4 (1997-2001) Camry's have the same defect. Possible engine mount problem (engine not held properly), over or under torquing of steering wheel and related components. Probably suspension failure or improper installation of steering and suspension. Note: Incident date is today's date (02 May 03). Incident has happened many times in normal driving. Note: Number of failures is measured in every time I start the car and drive at the above specified speeds. However, the number is lesser since it has been awhile that I reported the problem to Toyota.

This vehicle has a tendency to sway or oversteer when going around corners. This vehicle is equipped with general hp 400 A/S tires, dot number acur 3hu 5200 dx 67614 33712. The manual calls for pressure of 29 psi front and rear. The sway is very pronounced at this low pressure. A suggestion from the Toyota garage and tire dealer was to increase the tire pressure to 34 psi. With the tires inflated to 34 psi it is now very unstable when driving in gusty winds. Consumer feels this is either a tire problem or something dealing with the suspension.

Steering wheel shakes at 60mph so violently that consumers have gone almost numb. Consumers can feel steering bouncing from floorboard. Toyota's representative test drove, and acknowledged problem. Tires were diagnosed as possibile cause of problem. Toyota took a second look, and found vehicle came from factory with axle being outer round and replaced it. Toyota stated a third party would have to determine if vehicle should be considered a buy back.
