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.

July 2016 I was pulling away from my bank atm at approx.2-5 mph in my 2011 Toyota Camry when the car took off. The car accelerated so fast. I hit the brakes but it didn't stop the car. I missed a car and a van, went up over the parking block and hit a pole. That stopped me! I had 2 passengers in the car. Somehow no one got hurt. I had 3 blown tires and the right side window broken out with damage to that door. The front bumper was pulled from the body. The car has damage to the tie rod and will have to be replaced. Front end alignment will also have to be done. My car had to be towed home. Airbags did not deploy. I called the dealership from which I bought it from but it's been over 10 days and several phone calls with no response. This seems to be a problem with 2011 Camry's from the complaints I have read. When will something be done about this, after a death? the problem needs to be addressed asap.

In April 2016 I noticed a pool of oil on my Camry dashboard. The dashboard felt very sticky and now is cracking. In addition, the shiny oil reflects on my windshield. The reflection is distracting especially in the brilliant sunlight and at night. Clearly this reflection is a driving hazard and my dashboard is disintegrating unfortunately my VIN is not included in the Camry dashboard recall I implore that Toyota do the right thing and stand by their product. Photos of dashboard will follow.

Driver side sun visor is not holding its position and has become a hazardous since it blocks normal visibility when dangling. Called Toyota dealer and they said there is no recall and customer has to pay for the replacement. Under normal to light uses the inside mechanism broke. 2007 model had a recall for early breakdown. But 2011 model I believe has same parts but was not recalled or fixed. Toyota is providing cheap quality parts and pushing the burden to the consumer. This condition is subject to hazardous condition and should be recalled by Toyota. I request NHTSA to investigate this matter and make Toyota to recall this parts.

I was driving East on secondary road when a driver failed to stop and hit my car; first impact hit at my drivers side at front left of car then also she hit the left back side of my car which swung around at impact. Driver stated she didn't see my car. She was ticketed at fault and both of us were transported to hospital. My car's airbags did not deploy at all, not even the side impact bags! I hit my head on either the window or the upper door and sustained a hematoma on my top left skull and possible concussion as well as neck and back injuries. My vehicle was declared a total loss. A Toyota official told me later that from everything he knows, the airbags should have deployed in this instance,

A rattle or popping noise coming from the moonroof above front/rear passenger seat. A loud creaking sound all the time heard since winter is present when making turns or just hitting bumps in the road. Called dealer was told that plastic shims/ or different kits were needed and the labor was outrageous for customer pay. The 3 year warranty is ridiculous this is a structural issue. This is a known problem with all 2007 -up Toyota Camry's. tsb's are online. If you google moonroof popping or rattling on 2011 Toyota Camry's, you'll find that this is a recurring problem that Toyota is having with their moonroof. Why should the consumer spend thousands to fix a structural issue? I heard worst case scenario is total removal of moonroof with no guarantees to fix on my tab. Car is barely out of bumper to bumper warranty.

Strong, loud, persistent knocking sound coming from passenger side of roof when going over bumps or uneven pavement. This noise is the frame popping from two parts of the frame coming into contact, from what I was told by dealer. This was taken to the dealer previously and the tsb was found and work completed. It began making the noise again after a few days to a week after the service. I have scheduled to take it in again, but have hesitated due to the condition I received my car after service last time. The liner and body covers do not go back on right and the car did not look new any longer when I received it back. The problem was said to be caused by welding slag on the frame rubbing together, and bad welds on the car's body. This is not what someone wants to hear when purchasing a new car.

The passenger and driver door paneling is defective. The cloth adhering to the door cushioning is peeling off. Within 1.5 years of ownership the passenger side peeled. Within another year and a half the driver side started to peel.
