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.

Noticed a large knot on the front drivers side tire that was purchased 6 months earlier. Took it to the nearest dealer of cooper tires and upon inspection it was determined that it was a manufacturer defect. If we had failed to notice this, it would have blown out while we were driving. Being on the front, this could have caused a serious accident. The tire was replaced at a pro rated rate. After reading about several other people having the same complaint, we are going to switch brands. The tires have not held up to the milage that was advertised. We have very little miles on them but they are already showing the wear bars. We have records and all the proper maintenance was done on these tires. These were not the original tires that came with the camery!

The contact owns a 2011 Toyota Camry. While driving at 55 mph and attempting to decelerate, the vehicle started shaking violently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the vehicle needed an alignment, the tires needed to be balanced, and the rotors were warped and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 39,000.

I experienced a situation with brake no responses after I step brake several times and felt like car accelerating on May 19th, Sunday afternoon on a highway with Camry 2011. It was raining and the dealer customer service told me it could happen"?. the dealer checked the data and let a field technician checked, then told me when I was trying to pump the brake to reduce speed, the car smartly let the ABS system engaged in to avoid locking the wheel, which is the reason what I was feeling brake did not response and accelerating. But I acted so quickly to turn the car onto the highway curb to avoid crash into the front car, after several days check the dealer confirmed with me the Camry functioned nothing wrong and it was nothing to do with the quality recall regarding the Toyota accelerator issue! maybe it is true, but at least they did not convince me why brakes system did not work once ABS engaged. I think there must be a bug in the electronic device ABS system causing brakes no pressure no response at all during that critical moment. How dealer can not find anything wrong like that in my Camry 2011 ?"

2011 Camry with 27,373 miles entered traffic on fwy at 50+ mph started to shimmy violently engulfing me from all sides it was if car was possessed. In my 61 years I have never experienced anything like this. The radio cut out I felt pressure waves and noise throughout the car. I found a gas station just off fwy and checked the tires since that seemed the logical culprit, I found nothing unusual. To get home I had to drive about another 20 fwy miles keeping car at or under 60. I arrived at dealer and waited 3 1/2 hours before being shown possible problem. All 4 tires had what he referred to as "cupping, " on the inside rim. That would explain the entire car turning into a freak-show like nothing I ever experienced. Their solution was to charge me for 4 new tires at retail. Mechanic said tires looked good and had 20,000 plus miles left. Why should I have to replace, (in my opinion), defected tires. Tires were not out of alignment if they were then the dealership is at fault since they did it. I examined all 4 tires in the bay while it was jacked up, no excessive wear showed. Who do I see that will take responsibility" these are Bridgestone tires I thought were a solid brand. I went online to see if anyone had similar problems and found several. What would have happened to me if those 4 tires decided the pressure was too much and blew simultaneously, probably a hideous death!" wife drives the car it hers. She has had nothing but problems with transmission. She can't shift into gear until vehicle is warmed up and even then it is stiff and noisy. On a hill there was no grab it was if the car had no stop it literally took both feet one on brake other revving engine to keep from backing into a truck.

Factory-installed tires were completely and dangerously worn thin at below 24K miles. Tire air levels routinely fell below normal but Toyota dealership (Toyota of dallas) failed to notify at regularly scheduled maintenance appointments of tire wear.

September 21, 2012 I just happened to check the air pressure of the tires (just bought a new tire pressure gauge) when I noticed a large bulge on the front driver side tire. I took it to my Toyota dealer in round rock tx as directed by my service advisor. He indicated that the tire was pinched or hit something to cause this bulge and that Toyota would not replace it under its original warranty. He told me to take it to the Firestone store next door and see if they would replace it under warranty. Needless to say they claimed that it was a road hazard and would not replace it. Now, my wife and I have been driving a combined 62 years and we've never had a new tire blister like this, granted all the tire that came with the car and the subsequent ones we purchased were michelins. Lot of similar complaints on these Bridgestone oem tires on the internet.

1. defective car was delivered by Toyota & its dealer to me (customer). ----------- 2. car was not tested by Toyota/dealer on tires & vibration/shaking before delivery to customer. ----------- 3. when I complained to Toyota, then Toyota found the evidence that tires were defective. ----------- 4. because of defective tires fitted by Toyota & not tested properly by Toyota, damages happened on the overall life span of car - suspension & steering systems. ----------- 5. customer - driving safety was also put on huge risk, as untested car was delivered by Toyota. ----------- 6. when I complained to Toyota, then Toyota found the evidence that tires were defective. ----------- 7. by having that defect in tires, it is obvious that overall life span of car's suspension, struts & steering system has been reduced, because of running with this vibration & shaking. ----------- 8. with this existing defect in car (it was present before delivery & couldn't be fixed by Toyota service dealer for 6-months), customer's comfort & driving experience is totally ruined. Toyota is responsible for this damage to the customer's driving discomfort & the safety risk of customer's life (while driving the shaking & vibrating car). ----------- 9. now, as your supervisor offered "one year" of extended warranty on this car. It shows that Toyota know it very well that car is so much impacted & now has shorten the life span of car (because of these damaged tires & impacted parts in the car) so Toyota is only offering "one year" of extended service to cover up their mistakes / defects in their quality. ============== - car's shaking (vibrations at both - slow and higher speed), - impacts/damages the life span of steering, suspension and struts, - tires not in balance (wheel balancing was not done by Toyota). ==============

Car was brought in for tire noise. It was determined that the tires were wearing unevenly due to misalignment. Since the dealer did an alignment in April I felt that this was unacceptable. After complaining for about a half an hour that this was the worst Toyota I have ever bought (and I have had many). The service manager finally relented to replace all four tires and do a four wheel alignment free of charge. They said it was for "customer relations". or perhaps to make me disappear. In any event I was pleased with the results. Only time will tell if this alignment holds.

The contact owns a 2011 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that while driving approximately 65 mph, he drove over a rock and the front passenger side tire blew. As a result of the blowout, the rim on the front passenger side split in half. The contact installed a spare tire as a temporary remedy. The vehicle was then taken to an authorized dealer and the contact was informed that he would have to pay to have the rim replaced. The rim was replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 6,700. Updated 11/01/2011

Camry

  • 6,500 miles
In Aug. Of `10 I purchased a 2011 Toyota Camry. It has about 6500 miles on it and after driving it home from niagara falls yesterday, about 100 miles, I ran it through a car wash. I drove it home about a mile and made two stops on the way. Parked in the garage I went out to get the car around noon today (19 hours after the wash). The car would not move as the wheels were all tightly locked. I could not get it to go forward or backward. Finally one of the front wheels moved slightly and in so doing the back end of the car went sideways into the garage wall doing minor damage. I did not try it any more until around 24 hours after the car wash and it still is tightly locked and will not move. The temperature last night was about zero and 20 degrees today. I fear if I really force it may do damage to the brakes if it hasn't already. I have driven cars for 60 years, washed many in as cold weather and never had this happen. I have been told it is a design flaw. If I was not retired and had to go to work I would not have been able to move the car. Thank you for the opportunity to report this problem.
