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 #2

Apr 042016

Camry LE

  • Manual transmission
  • 120,000 miles


My car is having 120K miles and I experience a stiffness in the steering when turning right or left. It also does not realign to the position after the turn. It's been an annoying experience with the steering as I have to feel it at every turn. Sometimes it makes me feel unsafe to drive. I heard there are lot many other cars of my car model facing same issue. Toyota should definitely take it on serious note and make a decision to recall such cars and fix them soon.
