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

  • 65,000 miles


Driver side sun visor has failed. Toyota is aware of the problem but my VIN is not included in their warranty extension ztt and has refused to replace it free of charge. This is a safety issue as it will just drop into the fully extended position obstructing my view of the roadway and distracting me as a reach to manipulate it out of my view.

My driver side sun visor can not go back to it's position. It's hanging down in front of me and I have hard time to look in front of the vehicle. It is blocking my view. My daughter is little taller and she drives this car too, and it makes the problem worse for her. I called Toyota and I was told they couldn't help me with that.

I have Toyota Camry 2011. The sun visor has fallen. I have no sun visor and I see it as a safety hazard. Called Toyota ca delear- capitol expressway in san jose, they said that it is covered after checking the VIN number. Went there and wasted 2 hours to be told that is is not covered. Called Toyota experience ( or bad experience) line and they opened a case (1609170669) and said is is not covered. I see that Toyota product quality and service quality both have gone down. It is better to buy other good brands and avoid Toyota.

Driver side visor no longer stays up and partially blocks my view of the windshield. I have to lean forward to see the whole road and makes it difficult to look at my rear view mirrors.

I noticed the sun visor starting to sag a bit when I put it up to use it or when I closed it. It had done this for a couple months and I thought nothing of it. However one day when I was on the highway traveling at highway speed using it, it fell down and wouldnt go back up into position to use it or to store it away. It was blocking my field of vision and with the sun facing me face that too was blocking my field of vision. I almost rear ended another car but luckily was able to slow down in time. Apparently there is a problem with the sun visors but my VIN is out of the range of the ones supposedly affected.

Sun visors have just fallen downward and will not stay up. The drivers side completely fell off while I was driving. Huge safety issue. Toyota extended their warranty on some '07-'11 Camry's, but mine does not fall in the VIN # range they extended. It is obviously the same issue. This should be a recall, not extended warranty on all VIN #'s from these years. Toyota refuses to do anything about it.

The driver side sunvisor will not stay up making it uncomfortable to drive as it interferes with visibility. It does not help block sunlight as the driver can not adjust it to block incoming light.

  • 50,000 miles
Sun visor will spontaneously fall down blocking visibility. The locking mechanism that allows the visor to stay in one place is defective and it is unable to hold the visor in the up position. This also creates a hazard getting into the car, as a taller individual inevitably will slam his head on the visor as it is always stuck in the down position. This happens both while stationary and especially while driving. This is an accident waiting to happen.

  • 75,000 miles
During the first half of 2015 my driver's side sun visor would not stay all the way and was about 15% of the way down. While this was in my line-of-sight it really did not impede my vision or ability to drive. Mid-2015 the visor no longer was able to hold itself up and was fully down at all times completely impeded my ability to see the road as I am a taller driver. I had to remove it completely in order to drive the vehicle. There is an existing warranty but does not apply to my particular VIN. In fact there are only two 2011 Camry that would be covered under wmi code 4T4. I know I purchased one of the first 2011 Camry as I purchased in may of 2010 (well ahead of the normal release cycle) when Toyota went through their big (brake pedal / floor mat) recall. I only found out recently that there was a warranty available for at least a certain population of 2011 Camry. I have also found out that it is very common for the 2011 Camry to have issue as many other owners have complained via different forums and have also confirmed that their particular VIN is not covered.
