Battery died, battery was jumped and the windshield wipers switch fried and short circuited my entire electrical wiring. Resulting in $2,800 in damages. The car was stationary. There was recall on this problem for Camry's and I believe this wasn't fixed on mine.

A rabbit chomped on the lower wiring harness rendering the car disabled due to the wiring being made out of an "organic" compound in keeping with its "green" philosophy. I was told by the mechanic it is made from either a peanut oil or similar ingredient that attracts rodents. He also went on to say that the wiring covering causes issues on many of the Toyota's due to rodents eating the wiring and is is not covered under warranty. My car was sitting in my driveway prior to any issues and the engine would not start. This will cost $1900 to repair my brand new car.

The car computer refuses to accelerate properly when needed. When pressing on accelerator to cross busy intersection or from stop light, the exhibited 3-5 seconds of delay, it refuse to pickup speed which could cause a deadly accident! Toyota must recall the cars back and fix this problem before someone died again on the road!!!

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.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 8,500 miles
I went out to the garage to verify that the garage door was closed and heard something humming in the garage. Upon investigating the sound it turned out to be coming from under the rear of the car. The only thing that made sense to me was the fuel pump was running. I proceeded to get the keys and cycled the ignition to on without starting the car and then back to off. The humming stopped. I did remember hearing a second humming sound start and stop when turning the key to the on position, which would be the normal fuel pump cycling for an engine start sequence. I am wondering if what I originally heard may have been a relief valve slowly bleeding off pressure, but I am not sure if there is a relief valve somewhere in the back of the car. I disconnected the battery overnight for piece of mind. This did all occur between 4-5 hours after the car had been parked. I will be contacting my Toyota dealer regarding this problem.

On Dec. 1, my radio/ipod system malfunctioned. I was not able to go from am to fm to my ipod. Toyota replaced the radio unit with a rebuilt unit. On Dec. 31, the entire system failed. The display screen is black; thus in addition to not having any sound system, the back up camera cannot display what is behind me.

Driving on I-70 East of frederick, md up long hill when car lost power. Speed dropped from 75 to 50 mph. I was in center lane and traffic was heavy. Narrowly avoided multi-car pileup while trying to work my way to shoulder. Nothing on dashboard indicated problem. No unusual odors or sounds. I had been driving about 4 hours when incident occurred. When I returned to Florida 3 days later I took the car to the dealer for inspection and repair. They could not diagnose problem because no error codes appeared on their equipment and they could not replicate the problem because there are no hills in the area. Took car to a second dealer and got the same response. Dealer recommends 6 cylinder car. I have driven nothing but 4 cylinder cars for more than 30 years and have driven them from coast to coast including Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and California. I never experienced this problem with any of the 4 cylinder cars on any terrain. There is no question that the car has a defect which could be a serious safety problem and the lack of diagnosis indicates to me a failure in their diagnostic equipment.

Camry 4-cyl

The Toyota Camry was involved in a 2 vehicle accident resulting in damage to the front passenger side corner of the vehicle. The Camry was not drivable after the accident and was towed to a body shop. Two days later when an inspector went to look at the vehicle, it was found to have fire damage that resulted from a slow burn coming from the dash by the steering wheel.
