Sun visor unexpectedly sagged down while driving on highway, and now permanently in the dropped down position. Quite a potential safety issue when 1/2 of your visibility suddenly gets blocked, and this issue seems quite commonly reported in online forum complaints.

The visor on the passenger side suddenly started drooping while I was driving causing me not to be able to see. I had to remove. Toyota has a recall, but not for my car.

Driver's side sun visor will not remain in "closed" position. Flops/ falls down and significantly interferes with visibility through windshield. Only remedy is to extend the visor totally open toward the windshield, however, this is still a nuisance. The visor cannot be completely removed or positioned in manner that is not obstructing view. Other vehicles are included in a recall for this problem; however, not the VIN for this 2011 Toyota Camry. Don't understand why this vehicle is not included in the recall.

My driver's side sun visor suddenly broke while I was driving. It became floppy and dropped down into my direct line of site and almost caused an accident. It is my understanding that there is a recall on other 2011 Camry's experiencing the same problem but my specific VIN/vehicle does not qualify for repair. This is a huge liability for Toyota and extremely scary for my son and my safety. I have owned three Camry's and never experienced this type of problem. I just want my visor fixed! I have heard many others say the same thing. I feel they should expand the warranty policy to apply to all 2011 Toyota Camry's.

Approximately one and 1/2 months ago (maybe longer?), the driver side sun visor starting to make a clicking noise when I moved it up (closed) and down (open). Tonight, it would not stay up and was blocking my view. I could not move it to the side to get it out my line of sight. I had to hold it up the rest of the way home in order to see the road safely. I ended up removing it completely when I got home in order to drive without it blocking my view of the road, which is a huge safety issue. Now I have no sun visor. I live in southern ca, drive East in morning & West in the evening. I have to replace/repair this as soon as possible.

I see that there was a recall on this and my dealer has not notified me and I was unaware of the load issue. How do I handle this - jones junction in bel air, md is the dealer. I have a 2011 Camry le. Southeast Toyota is recalling certain model year 2008 and 2010-2013 Toyota Tundra, 2010-2012 rav4, 2012 Toyota sequoia, 2010-2011 Toyota corolla, 2010-2011 Toyota Camry and Camry hybrid, 2010-2013 Toyota highlander and highlander hybrid, 2010-2013 Toyota fj cruiser, 2011 Toyota land cruiser, 2010-2013 Toyota venza, 2010-2011 Toyota 4runner, 2010-2013 Toyota Tacoma, 2011-2012 Toyota sienna, 2012 Toyota prius, 2013 Scion fr-S, 2011 Scion xd, 2011 Scion xb, and 2012 Scion tc vehicles. These vehicles were sold with labels that were outside the allowable one percent of accuracy of actual weight added. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "tire selection and rims."

Drove down road keeping a constant 40-45mph. Vehicle suddenly revs engine wildly to redline. Car speed increases drastically to 65mph from 40-45mph. Took foot off gas pedal and engine still accelerated. Moments later engine went back to normal operating condition.

When I take off and get to exactly 25 mph, I hear a thumping from the back passenger side of the car. Sounds like thumping is coming from the tire. It only happens until it gets to 25 mph. When you go passed 25 mph it stops. I have taken the car to the dealership approximately five times and they never hear the noise. They tried to tell me that it was probably gas swishing around in the gas tank. It is a thumping, not a swishing.

This vehicle was involved in a previous accident in the home driveway of the owners of the vehicle. As the owner was turning into his driveway, a tire blew out on the vehicle's right front passenger side. As the driver/owner hit the brake the car accelerated into the side rock barrier of the driveway. According to Toyota who investigated the incident, there was no issue with vehicle. But another incident has recently happened involving the car this year on the incident date listed on this form. The wife of the owner of the vehicle was in the driveway operating the Toyota Camry 2011 to park the vehicle. As the car was turning to park in the driveway the operator pressed on the brake to back the vehicle back when all of a sudden without warning the vehicle leaped forward hitting the an exterior door to their basement which is surrounded by the rock that covers their home. The car was severely damaged, air bags were deployed and the operator sustained some injuries which caused her to visit the hospital and have medication prescribed to her. The impact on this second accident was so severe that is shown pictures of the incident you have to wonder how such an impact could happen unless their was fault in the vehicle. This time we are awaiting response from Toyota to investigate this problem. We also wanted to contact the government to make known of this recurring issue with the braking or unintended acceleration of the vehicle.

The windows consistently stick when in the up position. It is very difficult to put the window down. Many times the power window button has to be forced to get the window down. In addition, there is a residue that keeps appearing on the top of the window which sits on a rubber seal. The rubber seal at the top of the window is being worn. Concern: In the event of an emergency if the window needs to be opened it may fail to open.

My wife and I are retired in Florida. We parked our 2011 Toyota Camry xle with keyless ignition in our garage and brought the key fob with us into our home. My wife either did not push the engine off button hard enough or forgot to push the engine off button to turn off the engine. We did not hear the 3 short beeps telling us the engine was running and the key fob was removed from the vehicle. The garage is attached to our home. The vehicle was left running in our closed garage. Carbon monoxide fumes entered our home causing headaches, nausea, and lethargy. Our home carbon monoxide detector sounded an alarm. We investigated and found that we left the vehicle running in the garage for 90 minutes. The garage temperature was over 100(F) degrees. There was a large pool of water under the car from condensation from the car air conditioning compressor. We were sickened by the carbon monoxide fumes and came close to losing our lives. The keyless ignition option is too dangerous. There needs to be a change in design that turns off the engine when the key fob leaves the vehicle and the engine off button is not depressed.

The contact owns a 2011 Toyota Camry le. The contact stated that for the last three months he smelled an odor inside the vehicle when he turned the air conditioner/heat off. After a while he became sick and was hospitalized, but they couldn't figure out what caused him to become sick. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who advised him that the filter underneath the glove box may need to be changed. They were able to duplicate the failure, smell the odor and a technician from the factory was notified. When the technician inspected the vehicle they advised him that they could not locate where the odor was came from; however, he added a special filter to the vehicle to keep the odor out. Within a few weeks he smelled the strong odor again. The failure mileage was approximately 3,000. The VIN was unavailable.
