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.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 54,000 miles


On Sunday, May 18, 2014, I started my 2010 Toyota Camry and my check engine and vehicle stability control lights were on. I had no previous issues with the car. I called the local dealership on Monday morning to make an appointment, the first one I could get was just over a week away. I questioned the dealership if my car was safe to drive and they said yes, as long as the vsc light wasn't blinking. My car was checked by the dealership on May 27. I was told my brake actuator had gone out and the repairs were around $2,400 before taxes. The check engine light was from a charcoal canister that needed to be replaced, another $500+. the parts had to be ordered and it was May 30 when my car was ready. When questioning the dealership about why my brake actuator had gone out, they assured me that it was nothing I had done and they said they've had problems with others going out. After searching online I found that other models by Toyota have had recalls for the brake actuator. If the company is having problems with the same piece of equipment in other models, the recall should be expanded. Mine was not included in the recall, but it was faulty and failed. After searching, I also found there have been various issues with the charcoal canister as well in various models by the company. Perhaps research should be done on this issue also. My car is 4 years old and when I took it to the shop it had 54,259 miles. I called Toyota and they reiterated that my vehicle was not included in any recalls; therefore, at this point Toyota could do nothing about the repair.

I am having issues with my Camry bouncing, swaying, pulling left and right, the engine, transmission or axles shake. It feels like the brakes are pulsing or on at random times. I believe there are several issues with this car and Toyota is not reporting the problems. I also believe the mechanics are falsifying documents which are affecting my safety and the safety of others. Brake issues are life threating and Toyota assured me my car is safe. I have been at the dealership 5 times to have the issues fixed but the dealer first blamed the tires and balancing. I replaced the tires and the dealer blamed the loud snow tires. The dealer made an appointment with a service specialist. They blamed it on tire noises and said the see you in the spring when you change the tires and they specialist said you are still under warrantee. I changed the tires two days later and returned on Monday. The dealer test drove the car and said nothing but they will be talking the Toyota specialist. I heard nothing for a week and I had to call them on again on Monday (today). The service managers said there is nothing wrong. I just received a class action lawsuit mailing over the weekend. I knew the dealer and Toyota were hiding something. I also took the car to a second Toyota dealer as the specialist recommend. The second dealer already knew about the issues before I got there. The service manager drove my car, not a mechanic test, and also blamed the snow tires. The specialist was also asking what Toyota dealerships are closer to home for me. I also called Toyota and opened two cases. I asked for transcripts of the classes and other information, they said that was for in-house use only and I could not have the info.

Purchased new 2010 Toyota Camry le, in first week acknowledged to dealership that it was shifting itself slowly like a stick shift. Also quickly accelerating when braking on turns. Told normal let the car break in. Few weeks trouble still continue. Took to dealership, told yes there is recall but need to wait for letter. At 1600 miles accelerator was changed, however vehicle still driving unsafely hard to come to complete stop, takes to long like it is downshifting. Vehicle jumps as driving and is riding rough. Now at 2000 miles and first payment dur not comfortable in car. Single mother that decided it was time to invest in a new car and stop dealing with used car problems has found in two months new car has millions of more issues. Not satisfied and very disappointed. Need another car but not in position to do so. Scared for family safety as many reports show people are being ignored by complaints and are dying.

Vehicle purchase Nov 2009. 2010 Toyota le Camry. Noticed within first 200 miles that vehicle accelerated and down shifted during turns. Voiced compliant. No action. Recall announced, told had to wait for letter for repair. Brought vehicle back same problem. Then fixed. Vehicle at 1700 miles driving like stick shift car jumps as changing gears. May jump as breaking causing an incomplete timely stop. Currently at 2200 miles driving rough on road and shifting self as driving so power will immediately increase then decrease. Scared to drive new vehicle. Dealership treating me as crazy and that should wait for additional recalls before bringing vehicle in. This has all taken place before initial payment was even made. Very disappointed in quality.
