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.

2013 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #4

Camry 4-cyl

  • 2,500 miles


New vehicle after a cold start refused to accelerate. It had 2/3 tank of fuel, brakes released, and no interference with the gas peddle. Vehicle would not accelerate past 15 mph and would hesitate and stumble to the point of engine stall when pressure on gas peddle increased. Engine warning lights did not indicate a problem. Restarted engine several times on the way to dealer service shop. About two miles from the dealer, the problem seemed to resolve itself. Dealer service could not replicate problem as of this writing and will remain with them over this weekend in the hope that the source of the problem is found and resolved. Thankfully the lack of engine response developed while driving my subdivision streets and did not contribute to and accident. It is noted that there are similar complaints for this problem on 2013 Camry, S listed by owners on the internet with no noted resolution.

I was driving on M-80 across Illinois, for about 2 hours on cruise control, set at 69 mph. I suddenly realized that the car seemed to be going too fast, as I passed a couple cars rather quickly. I glanced at the speedometer and saw it, in about one second, go from 85 mph to 87 mph and I immediately braked, thereby stopping the cruise control (?) from continuing to accelerate the car. When this happened, I did not have my foot on the gas pedal or my hand near the cruise control mechanism. The car just simply accelerated quickly on it's own. I tried to continue to use cruise control to drive back to Michigan, however shortly thereafter, it began to rain/snow so I didn't use the cruise control after that. This is a new car that I just bought in September.

Toyota has another throttle problem. I bought a 2103 Camry SE on March 30th 2013 from larry miller Toyota and it exhibits an intermittent throttle problem. When I start from a stop some times it seems as if the engine dies. It does not as the engine does not need to be restarted. The throttle is simply non-responsive. The car moves ahead a little and virtually dies. This can occur going straight ahead, turning right or worse yet in the process of making a left turn. This is very much a safety issue when executing a turn when it appears one has a break in traffic and the car barely moves. The car has been back to the dealer and there is no failure code so they say they cannot verify the problem and that it is working as it should. I went out for a short ride with the shop foreman and I could not replicate the problem. He did say that he had 3 or 4 other vehicles with a similar problem. I did leave the car with them for 2 days and they drove it 54 miles and could not duplicate the problem. My suggestion to the dealer and to Toyota is to determine what is most likely to cause this problem and replace it and see if this will fix it. They will not do this. It must be a problem they can verify "find a failure code". I have asked them to replace the throttle transducer which is $250 if replacing it does not fix the problem I would pay for it. The lack of a failure code just means it is not a hard problem and failing in a manner they anticipated when they set up there failure trouble shooting procedures.

Three separate unrelated incidents: 1. while driving in freeway traffic and attempting to blend into side lane, there was no power for a brief second and then a surge which made us decide to stay in the current lane. The repair man said he had heard this concern from other 2013 Camry owners, but I needed to learn to drive this as a new vehicle. 2. dealer put us off when we asked about recall due to a problem with the airbags. When we E-mailed Toyota they referred us back to our local dealer. We felt caught between them.this has finally been dealt with. 3. starting the Camry which was parked in our garage, (outside temperatures were below zero) there was a rumbling and a pop. I called our dealer to be sure I should drive into town. When I went to their local office, they told me that this had happened to other owners and it was because of the new federal guidelines for fuel efficiency which made parts closer together and the need to use a thinner oil which would settle and cause this bang. Yet, they also said that none of their lot cars had experienced this and they were not in garages.
