  • 34,000 miles


While slowly pulling into a parking place, car suddenly accelerated. Applied the brakes, but they did not work. Crashed into a bush and the side of the building where I work. Put car in neutral and applied brakes again..then put it in park. Airbags did not deploy and there is approx. $1,000 damage to front fender and headlight on drivers side. Am leasing this car and lease is up in under 90 days. I want to trade this immediately but want to report issues with this car so that Toyota will fix it before someone else gets it.

Sudden unintended acceleration in 2014 Toyota Camry. Incident occurred Saturday October 15, 2016 in corinth, Texas. Approximately 5:20pm. Weather was sunny and clear. Road conditions clear and dry. Outside air temperature approximately 80F. Driving 30mph approaching an intersection. We have the red light. Brakes applied. Brake pedal goes to the floor - no brakes at all. Immediately the engine revs up to very high RPM and unintentional, out-of-control acceleration takes place. The car goes through the intersection against the red light. No cross-traffic or otherwise there could have been a serious crash. The car is accelerating on its own. The transmission is aggressively moved into the "park" position. The car stops. Braking action returns. The engine continues to run however the RPM returns to normal. The car is cautiously driven at 35 - 40mph to local Toyota dealer - Toyota of denton, Texas. If the car approaches 50mph the engine begins to rev up to high RPM however braking action remains normal. This incident has left the owners with no confidence in Toyota. The car is not trustworthy. Even if the service technicians say the car is good to go, would you allow your family members to drive this car" no way. And with Toyota's reputation over the last 10 years with handling the sudden unintended acceleration problems would you trust this car" no way. We want to be done with Toyota. The car needs to be sent to the junkyard. And we want the purchase-money loan cancelled and our down payment back. And we will go to another car manufacturer.

Driver was slowing down, coasting before applying brake to turned left into driveway. Driver applied brake and car accelerated very strong but brief; driver then applied brake very firmly, and car stopped; but by this time, car missed driveway entry, and had to back up to restart entry. This same scenario has occurred 3 times with 2 different drivers. Other 2 occurrences were less strong, sub-second acceleration "blips" Toyota case #TA151210472.

The Toyota Camry 2014 is designed so that you may take your 'key fob' and leave the car without putting it in park turning off the motor putting the parking brake on how stupid is this! you then have a google self driving car without you in it. You could even run over yourself.

Driving down highway at 60mph. Vehicle down the road slowed to enter merchant lot. Applied brake. Something snapped, steering locked, wheels locked, tires kicked out. Total loss of control of the vehicle. Skidded down the road until impacting the other vehicle on the side, pushing it back into traffic and continuing several feet until coming to rest in the ditch about 30 feet from several vehicles in the merchant lot. Tie rod broke. No airbags deployed, though I was told it was because of where my vehicle was hit was why they didn't deploy.

Engine has low (RPM) 650-670 when stopped with brake applied on slight incline when brake is released car rolls backward before gas can be applied. The car directly behind me if too close, can be hit by my car rolling backwards idle RPM should be increased too 750-800 to rectify this problem Toyota said they can not adjust the idle RPM.
