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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2012 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

I have recently had issues with the locks on both front doors of my 2012 Camry SE. The front passenger's door would only lock/unlock manually, and now the driver's door will, intermittently, stay locked when using the remote. The dealership replaced the actuator in the front passenger's door in June. Then, last Monday the remote wouldn't work on 3 separate occasions. I called the dealership, they told me to bring it in, but after lock/unlocking the car "about 150 times" the service guy said he could not replicate the issue and basically I have to wait for it to get worse. The problem seems to occur after the car has been locked for over an hour. It's only an inconvenience right now but I'm afraid this is what happened with the passenger's door, and am concerned that it will escalate from an inconvenience to a security issue. Also, I'm wondering if this is a common issue with the 2012 Camry SE.
