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.

2002 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #4

Mar 192008

Camry 2.4L L4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,500 miles


My a/c started flashing and the cool air flow stopped. This continued all day, so I checked my freon level, it was full while the compressor was not "kicking" in. I checked my fuses and everything seemed fine. I took it to a mechanic shop and they checked the a/c system. Turns out that the a/c magnetic relay switch was the part not working. The mechanic checked for recalls and it turns out 2001-2004 Toyota Echos, Camry's and one other car had bulletins posted about the recalls. I finally get the part put in and decided since the part was a recall, my dealership should reimburse me for it. I go to Lynch/Scion/Toyota dealership and they tell me they can't help because they never received the bulletin. I have never been so ticked with these macho know-it-alls in my life. I know that companies need to profit but my gosh whatever happened to chivalry. I'm having the mechanic shop I went to first print out the recall charge and maybe bring a male friend with me to get my reimbursement. I am so sick of dealerships taking advantage of sweet young female that try to take care of their cars.

the a/c just stopped working; the light on the dash just started blinking; so on the first hot day of the year in Chicago, I had no "air." Bummer!
