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.

A rattle or popping noise coming from the moonroof above front passenger seat. On 2/7/13 a repair was made and was told that welding debris was found on a contact point in the moonroof. Repair stated that the moonroof mountings were cleaned and the moonroof was re-torqued. After the repair we heard a creaking sound on occasion when making turns and on rough roads but didn't feel it was bad enough to take back for repair. Now a year later on 3/3/14, the noise has returned and took it in again for repair. Was told that plastic shims had to be ordered and that they would call when they come in. I'll take my car in again when the parts arrive and let the service department re-attempt to make the repair again. This is a known problem with all 2012 Toyota Camry's. if you google moonroof popping or rattling on 2012 Toyota Camry's, you'll find that this is a recurring problem that Toyota is having with their moonroof. Hopefully, the next repair resolves this problem.

The back windshield shattered into small pieces while it was parked in our apartment lot. I just opened and closed the door in the morning it is shattered into small pieces. I went to the dealer, even though it is manufacturing or Toyota's supplier issue it is not covered under warranty. It would have been a serious issue if a kid is in the car, whose car seat is facing the rear wind shield.

I was merging on to the interstate when I heard a loud crash. I then heard a rushing wind sound and glass breaking. I slide open the interior sun visor on my sun roof just slightly and saw broken glass and a large hole in the sun roof. I realized that the glass on the sun roof had suddenly broken. I did not pass under an overpass and did not see any objects that would have cause the breakage. There were no trucks near me that could have dropped anything that could cause the damage. If I would have had the sun visor on the sun roof open at the time of the event, I would have had the broken glass come down on me while I was driving on the interstate which could have resulted in a severe accident. The sun roof is not covered under the warranty.

The wind buffeting that occurs in this car is unbearable. This causes an unsupportable pressure that you feel in your ears and head. Speaking while one of the rear windows is open is also impossible because our voices will echo.

The rear window reflects all the defroster lines when a car is behind you. So when looking out the rear window and there is 1 car you see 20 lines of lights and if there is 2 cars you see 40 lines of lights and so on. This clearly does not let you see out of rear window clearly. It is also very distracting and can cause an accident since you can not see out of your rear window.
