2015 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #7

Nov 252016


  • 40,000 miles


When accelerating from a complete stop or when slowing down to make a left turn, it hesitates as if the car has stalled when stepping on the gas pedal to go. It will go about 5 -10 feet just enough to get you out there into traffic and then nose dives because it loses all forward power, steady pressure on gas pedal and milking gas pedal does not make it resume any faster. So far it has lasted 30 to 45 seconds and then resumes. The rpms stay at about 1 (idle) and the eco light flashes randomly but car does not stall so far just loses forward motion and wont accelerate out of the way of traffic oncoming and behind you. This has happened 9-10 time Oct 2016-Dec 2016

V6 engine stumbled upon accelleration in traffic. Was going less than 30 mph in heavy traffic, changed lanes to go faster but felt like engine had been turned off for 2 to 3 seconds, then it accellerated normally. Outside temp was in 80's, gas tank half full, no warning lights appeared. About 2 miles previous to this we were sitting idling in a construction zone with A/C on. No further episodes to date. Shortly after I bought the car I had a similar episode, but wasn't sure as it wasn't so noticible. Took car to dealer but no error codes present, will check farther this Friday when expert tech is there. Unknown which component caused this.

I was trying to pass a line of cars, and the car hesitated, for about 4 minutes, and I almost was hit by traffic coming from behind and would have been hit between the drivers door and passenger door, if the person coming had not been paying attention and managed to go around me. It has happened 3 other times. On a highway
