2011 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

Wed am, Nov. 12, 2014, I parked my 2011 Toyota Camry SE 4cyl in an airport parking garage. Weather was 31 F. when I returned from my trip the next evening, I started the car, organized some things for a minute to allow car heater to warm the vehicle while I sat. I then proceeded to back out of the parking space. Temperature was in the 20S F. I noticed the car was sluggish so I pressed a bit more on the gas pedal, but the car failed to go faster. After slowly backing out far enough, I put the car in drive. Despite reaching 2500+ RPM, the car would not increase speed. The speedometer stayed at 0 (zero) mph. I put on my flashers, and pulled, very slowly, to the right side of the garage lane, so as not to impede vehicle traffic. I continued to rev engine for 1 to 2 minutes. Only after revving the engine multiple times did the car begin to slowly respond. This flaw is a significant concern and could endanger live(s). Imagine if I am at a stop sign, awaiting to make a left turn on to a busy roadway. If my 2011 Camry's fuel injector fails to respond as expected, thereby responding slowly to me pressing the gas pedal, then I envision the likelihood of being in a horrific side-impact collision. I will address this issue with the dealership tomorrow. Winter is just beginning, and cold starts are going to be much more common (likely in much colder temps). I don't believe modern vehicles, with electronic fuel injection, should have this safety issue, or require much warm-up time.

While traveling on route 78 West near bethlehem pa the oil light began to flicker. We pulled off the highway into a GM dealership. The mechanic said the oil was leaking out the oil filter and there was no oil on the dipstick. Now the engine is making a grinding sound when it is starting and other sounds. I'm afraid that we will have to be replaced the engine or the car. We have 3 years left on the car loan. The oil and filter were replaced 32,012 at sears. I have saved the failed oil filter.

I was driving West on flamingo just past the 95 exit. I was driving in the center lane, waiting for clearance to get into the turn lane. When I removed my foot from the break, the vehicle accelerated on its own. I was able to slam on the brake and stop immediately. I had dealer check it out -- plus a previous incident on Sept 24, 2012 as well as another one on November 6, 2012. Toyota denies that there is a problem, but it keeps happening.

Transmission issues..... while doing mostly city driving and in the first ten minutes of driving, transmission will not know what gear it wants to be in, there is a whiny noise associated with it also (never heard this before in the Toyota's I have owned). While at a complete stop the vehicle will almost die to conserve fuel. When you go to start back up the vehicle will do this gear "checking" process leading to the vehicle not moving as it should. Once it finds the correct gear the car will lunge very quickly and almost create rear end collisions. I have two intersections near my home that I am afraid to come to because I have to floor the gas and step on the brake pedal so the car does not stall and so that the car will make it across the intersection without getting T-boned. I almost got T-boned twice due to this the last happening on 6-30-12. This issue is a 6-15 mph issue and when cold more than warmed up. I read that this issue is not an issue but a learning transmission and that it tries to learn operators. With 21,000 miles a car should not be learning and what if a different operator drives it? the car will jerk me around while on my 8 mile jaunt to the highway in the mornings. Once on the highway this is a non-issue. I called Toyota and they have not issued a recall but I have read of many other terrified Toyota 2011 and 2010 Camry owners that have called them and several have contacted your organization. There is a tsb (technical service bulletin) 0287-10 out for the learning of this transmission but it has not help my situation or others from what I read. (updated transmission software) I will not allow my wife or children in this car. I even took the keys with me once while away on business so she would not forget and drive it.
