2001 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 272003

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles


The driver's side front wheel of our 2001 Toyota Camry suddenly came off from the axel while traveling at highway speed (around 65 mph). This happened on the interstate 78 highway in pa. This lead to car sinking to the left and hitting the guard rail, then spnning across the highway, hitting the other guard rail. The car was totaled. People were injured, one person at the back seat had head injury, one has had chronic neck problems since then, others keep having neck troubles off and on. The wheel jumped the median and flew off to the otherside of the highway. The coming off of the wheel was sudden, giving no time to the driver to do anything to control the vehicle. The car only had roughly 55,000 miles on it and we had gotten an oil change and multipoint inspection service on the car about 1000 miles before the accident. There was no axel related problem indicated in the service. That service was done by a Toyota dealer. The accident was reported to Toyota customer service. Thankfully there was no other vehicle around us on the highway or the wheel coming off would have had fatal results.
