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. Notes: The Camry Hybrid's first year is a mixed bag of brake actuators failing and power issues. The hybrid version even shares the same excessive oil consumption as its non-hybrid counterpart. And it hardly gets enough fuel efficiency gains to warrant the extra costs up-front or during repairs.

Toyota seemed to get their act together with later model years, so if you're looking for a used Camry Hybrid I suggest looking there.

2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid Owner Comments

Camry Hybrid

  • 510,000 miles


ABS was activated randomly and I had problems stopping. I had a message on the dashboard indicating the parking brake was activated when it was not. The message indicated to check the vac system. Toyota claimed the computers didn't show any error codes. They initially denied any problems and attributed this to driver error. After a few weeks trying to get them to fix this problem I caught the problem on video using my cellphone and showed it to the dealership. They used my extended warranty to change the actuator and billed my warranty for $2,000. My main complaint is that I almost got in a car accident because they refused to acknowledge the problem and told me it was 1) probably my floor mat; 2) my driving. I have receipts and the video to back up this complaint.
