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.

Dashboard melted in sun and created a strong glare which is effecting visibility and created a sticky mess which collects dirt and bugs.

The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Camry. While driving at approximately 60 mph, there was an abnormal noise coming from the front passenger side tire and the steering wheel vibrated. The failure recurred numerous times. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the tires needed to be balanced. As a result, the transmission and the front wheel bearing was replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 114,000.

On or about the above date of April 15, 2015 I washed my 2010 Toyota Camry at a local car wash using their automated high pressure wash and wax. A few days afterward I realized the center trunk area, that holds the spare tire, held 2 to 3 inches of water, and the right side of the trunk also had water. I have read post after post online stating many other Toyota owners had the same problem, and some have stated the rear window and body panels were not securely sealed from the outside elements when the vehicle was assembled at the factory. In June of 2014 water was getting inside on the carpet on the driver and passenger side soaking the carpet completely. The air conditioner condensation drainage tube had plugged up underneath the vehicle that caused the interior by the driver and passenger side to be soaked in water. There is no evidence whatsoever that this vehicle was ever involved in an accident. The odometer just recently turned over 45,145 miles. Now, there is already an indication of mold, and mold can be deadly.

The Camry has a very bad popping noise in the roof, sounds like the car is in a bind when you run over speed bumps or driving on a curvy road.I've contacted Toyota and they have recalls on 2012 models for the same thing but won't talk about doing anything for mine, the dealers say its a 5 to 7 hour job and I really don't know how stable the roof is.my car is a 2010 with 52,000 miles just like new inside and out and Toyota should correct the known problems that they caused from the factory? please help

The vehicle was stopped at an intersection attempting to make a left hand turn. The car was hit in the side front from the tires forward so the fluids and bumper were destroyed. Driver did hit the dashboard and no airbags deployed from the side curtain airbags or the front airbags. No airbags were ever deployed to protect the driver. When this car was purchased it was because of the safety of the airbags...which were no help in this accident.

While going down the street and braking at around 15 mph I noticed a creaking noise. The noise continued while braking, and going over railroad tracks and uneven pavements. I took my vehicle to the Toyota dealer in town to have the problem checked out. They found out that the body structure was messed up. The (A-pillar) was not connected to the main frame. They told me there was nothing they could do about the problem, that I would have to take it to a body shop to be welded, they also said and gave me paperwork saying it was a defect in the 2007-2011 Toyota models.

Since the past 60 days there has been a popping, creaking and metal flexing noise emanating from the roof panel especially pronounced when crossing over any uneven pavement surface, the noise began at 40,000 miles, 4000 miles after the manufacturer warranty expired, my research shows that this is an inherent problem with several Toyota models especially the Camry and has been evident since model year 2007 with sun/moon roof installations, on contacting the dealership I was informed that they are aware of the problem and is almost always related to the sunroof frame/guide rails/insulation and have repaired it on it numerous occasions all being under warranty since the warranty has expired on my vehicle I was directed to contact Toyota customer service, on contacting Toyota customer service I was refused any assistance and acknowledgement of the problem, per my research the problem has escalated in some cases to the sunroof shattering causing a major driving and health hazard and possible severe injuries from collisions and/or cuts from shattering glass. Toyota customer service refuses to admit there is a flaw in the design and assembly of vehicles equipped with sun/moon roof and refuse to remedy the problem by claiming expiration of warranty.

Camry

  • 7,800 miles
Rear window of a 2010 Toyota Camry with approximately 7800 miles (rental) exploded while at a complete stop in traffic. No sign of foreign object striking window. Two areas of glass failure were noted, roughly following the radius of the glass on either side in a vertical pattern as it bends to meet the rear pillars. The window remained intact (albeit shattered) long enough to record it on my iphone, clearly showing two areas of failure with gaps of 1/4-1.5 inches between the center (flatter) portion of the glass and the left and right sides where it bends to meet the rear pillars. The widow fell into the car as soon as I resumed movement on the street. The sound was like that of a gunshot, loud enough to draw a crown of pedestrians in the area who witnessed it.
