My son with autism, who is diligent with all recalls on his 2007 Toyota hybrid Camry did not receive a notification from Toyota about a change in warranty added which expired in 2016 which was to repair a potential failure in the brake system. Unfortunately in October 2022 he had a very serious failure of the braking system and was not injured and no one else was injured. I took this car into Gerald Toyota of Matteson. Illinois. Upon receiving a quote of 5569.75 plus the dealership telling me that we needed to replace tires that are brand new, new brakes and pads because they will need replacing soon as they are 3+ mm, I looked on the internet for information about the repair needed. It turned out that this car was prone to this very thing happening and Toyota honored repair of this until 2016. WE NEVER RECEIVED ANY LETTER OR RECALL.
We had documentation as well as Toyota for getting every recall repaired on this car but this one slipped through the cracks, for a reason I cannot tell you. When I asked toyota corporate if they stood by their vehicles, they said they did but in this case only until 2016. So, I am upset. My son's car is in perfect shape. Low mileage. It is a horrible shame that I have to pay 5500 dollars to fix a problem that they knew was sooner or later going to affect this vehicle. I am counting my blessings that no one was killed over this defective part. I just truly believe if they knew this was a problem, that they should have made sure everyone knew and received this information. My true belief is that this is about money and that is why a more concerned effort was not put into place to notify every person who owned this make and model of car which could have had this potentially life-threatening issue.
Apparently, even the customers who got letters were mislead into believing there were just some vehicles involved. Then they gave a window of time. Then they extended that window. Short story long, my vehicle IS 14 years old, but it only has 95,000 miles on it. My son is using it now, but the shiny surface creates a glare on the windshield, which is a danger to pedestrians. The federal government needs to go back to Toyota and tell them that manufacturers in the United States have an obligation to consumers. This consumer has purchased 8 or 9 new Toyota vehicles. The one I now own is the last. I don't honor companies who don't honor their consumers.

Bought a car from Bosak in Indiana. Wanted to trade the car in for a different style. They offered 20000 less than I paid. (400 miles on it.) Tried to talk to them about this. Told me that was it. I will never buy a Toyota again. I plan on letting everyone that I know the same. My guess is cars are selling, They just don't care. Should of bought American.
My experience with the 2016 Toyota Camry has been wonderful. The engine is very strong and the car's overall reliability is unmatched compared with other brands. The car is approximately 6 years old and over 51 k miles while it still drives like day 1 since I've had it. It is made bulletproof in my opinion with really low maintenance cost. I have only done regular maintenance of the vehicle since I bought it and it has been solid for over 6 years. I look forward to driving it for many more years to come. I would definitely recommend buying this vehicle to everyone.
In 2020 I have stopped for a snack in Northern Quebec Rest Area. Afterwards lock the keys in the trunk by mistake. A minute later the whole car lock itself. CAA was able to open the car but not the trunk. Toyota Roadside Assistance has sent a tow truck with instructions to call locksmith to open the trunk. Failing getting a locksmith to tow the car to Toyota Dealership in Val-d’Or. Being Sunday no locksmith was available and I had to wait in the car until Monday for the car technician to open the door. By that time I was without food and water and use of the rental car for approximately 24 hrs. Afterwards presented with an invoice for 3 hrs. labour. Other car manufacturers have the alarm set not to lock the car when keys are in it. Toyota has the same option but decided to alarm and lock the car and call that normal operation.
Monitor your oil! Most specials only add five quarts. My Camry calls for 6-7 if properly drained. Toyota failed to mention and I've been through hell finding oil leak that never was. The missing oil was only 5 quarts placed in.
I purchased a 2008 Toyota Camry many years ago. There is a defect with the dashboards that cause them to melt and get sticky. There are many articles online about this. The issue causes glare both in the evening when other vehicle lights shine and during the day when sunlight hits the dashboard. I was not notified about the recall and was told this was not covered by the extended warranty that expired two years ago. (They did not list the issue as a recall but as something to be repaired under the extended warranty.) Toyota on their commercials boasts about Safety. This is a real safety issue and Toyota covers themselves by putting under an extended warranty. There should a class action lawsuit or attorney generals investigating this and changing the laws on this matter. I would never buy a Toyota again.
Purchased new 2021 Camry XSE in late December 2020. I ran my new car through our local car wash and was very surprised when all of the front collision sensors starting alarming visually with audible alarms. On my next visit to the car wash I disabled all of the collision safety features, but once again all of the front collision sensors alarmed when the car was in neutral, still running and being pushed through the car wash. I contacted the dealer service department, but they had no idea how to disable the front collision sensors so that they would not alarm with the transmission in neutral and being run through the car wash. I even called Toyota Customer Service several times on the last few months, but no one at Toyota has taken responsibility to issue a software update to fix this problem. This is very poor customer support and not what I expected from Toyota.
I have owned my 2020 Camry for about a year and the Remote Start has barely worked. Finally got it fixed today (supposedly) after taking it to the dealer 3 times before. My remote connect trial expires next week and after calling customer service they were only willing to extend it for 6 months. This is unacceptable given my troubles and experience with it these past 12 months. I will never buy another Toyota vehicle again after realizing they won’t stand behind their products!
I purchased a new 2019 Toyota Camry LE and I noticed that the steering wheel’s seam was rough. This appears to be a manufacturing defect because I have owned several Toyota vehicles over the years, but none of them had this issue. It is as though the seam was never buffed down, so there is a rough edge. When I took the car in to the dealership for its 5,000 mile service recently, I told the service department about the issue. They checked it out and told me that they compared the steering wheel with another Camry, and it had the exact same feel with the seam, so it was not a defect and they could not do anything about it. If two Camrys have the same issue, this indicates that it is a manufacturing defect and should be corrected. It is a minor issue, but annoying.
