2012 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

The seat in rocking back and forth. The track on the right side of the seat is the culprit. I have removed the seat to inspect it and there is no adjustment but it wasn't moving when I bought the car and it is getting worse every day. It is annoying to have the seat move when you are driving. It feels like it may come off sometime.

The contact owns a 2012 Toyota Camry. While the vehicle was parked, there was a burning odor inside the vehicle. The contact noticed that the rear driver side headrest was burning caused by the sunlight. The failure recurred a few times. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 45,000. Updated 08/30/16

My 2012 Camry hybird with leather seats. My problem seems to be related to the weight of the previous occupant, ie, if over 200 lbs and it will probably work correctly. But if the exited occupant was less than 200 lbs, the air bag will alarm and message for the (former occupant) passenger to use the seat belt. I'm trying to get Toyota to correct the problem but they warn me that I may have to pay to correct something that never occured before their recall.

I drove this 2012 Camry on the high way to nashville tn for 8 days vocation started 28 June 2014, lot of water coming out from carpet, had to stop and clean water in every couple hours(my hand was injured when cleaning up water). After I arrived a hotel, I searched on the internet and found out that Toyota had a recall in Dec 2013 on this A/C water leak, it can cause "airbag warning light", electronic power steering light", or other problems. We are very worried about car may cause accident in the whole vocation. ------ after back to rochester NY, called Toyota and they told me go to Toyota service to repair this problem; so I went to henrietta NY Toyota service and told them A/C water leak, they said they will fix that, on the service report printed:" Customer states there is a water leak", "work performed by xxxx", "cleaned A/C drain". but the manager lied to me, he said there is no recall. ------ not sure if it is totally fixed, car still very moist, smell is bad, even after open car's 4 doors, put the carpet bask in the sun for few days. ------ yesterday, I found another Toyota service report and recall letter from Toyota on 12/28/2013, and this report shows they "performed work by xxxx.". I totally forgot this car recalled and already performed the "fix" for A/C water leak problem, obviously, Toyota service did not fix this problem and they lied to me. ------ this Camry has damage under carpet because of water leak, it may cause some electric circuits problems in the future, I don't want to be worry everyday, so I don't want this car any more (the lease term will end in one more year and a month, I paid $3000 down payment for 3 year lease, also every month payment). What is my choice? ------ thanks!

Driver's seat rocks back and forth and is loose on the track that secures it to the floor. After inspection by a certified Toyota dealership it was stated that this is "normal". the condition seems to be getting worst as time goes on. Concern lies in whether or not the seat is securely bolted down (they confirmed it is) but is just loose within the track and if so what would happen in the case of a collision? the seat is a safety hazard and needs to be addressed.

Noticed that the air bag light is on constantly, the seat belt light keeps flashing and the passenger air bag light is always off even if a heavy adult is sitting in it. The seat belt light keeps flashing always. Noticed this but thought as most times drive alone thought that as there is no passenger in the passenger seat most of the times and attributed the cause of the flashing seat belt light for that.but now know that this is definitely a safety issue.

The contact owns a 2012 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the front driver and passenger seats were uncomfortable to sit on. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the seats were taken out and springs were added but the problem recurred. The contact stated that there was a bar under the seat that was surrounded by 1/4 inches of foam that was causing the discomfort. The manufacturer was contacted and informed the contact that it was not possible to change the seats. The failure mileage was 15 and the current mileage was 1,710. The dealer replaced the springs in the seat. When the consumer retrieved the vehicle, he stated the problem with the seat was still there, even more so with the extra foam. Updated 02/14/13
