car   Air Bag problem 3
Failure Date: 03/19/2016

The crash happened in a parking lot on March 19th, 2016. I had entered into the parking spot, by turning right. The car had come to a complete stop and my foot was on the brake pedal. Suddenly I heard a loud revving noise and before I could even react to it, the car had jumped on to the walkway of the building. Since I had stopped, my foot was on the brake pedal and even though I was pressing on it really hard, the car didn't stop. It slowed down a little bit for a fraction of a second, but then accelerated itself again, jumped ahead once more, went through the awning of a business suite in the building and hit a light post. The airbags didn't deploy. The car was totaled. As, I had turned right to enter into the parking spot, the steering wheel was still turned to the right and the car turned right and went parallel to the cinder block wall of the building, instead of going straight and hitting the wall, which could have turned fatal for me and my child. This vehical had been recalled earlier. I had received the recall notice from Toyota in early 2010 for "potential floor mat interference with accelerator pedal (safety recall 90l)" and had it repaired in may 2010, from a local Toyota service center.

car   Air Bag problem 5
Failure Date: 10/06/2014

I was at a stop sign crossing an intersection that has no traffic signals. The speed limit on the street I was crossing is 45 mph. I looked both ways and saw no cars, so I proceeded to cross the intersection. As I entered the intersection, I was struck by a truck in the left front corner panel of my car. I spun several times and was struck again in the back of my car. I was knocked unconscious and did not regain consciousness until I was in the ambulance. I was transported to a trauma hospital where I was treated for a broken clavicle, broken ribs, multiple deep body bruising, and a concussion. I underwent surgery to repair my clavicle and to this day still recovering from my injuries. I am writing today to request an investigation be made into the fact that none of my air bags deployed in this accident. I have reached out to Toyota and received no resolution. I would think that with the multiple points of impact on my vehicle that my side curtain air bag or my driver¿s airbag would have deployed. I believe that if the airbags had deployed, I possible would not have had the broken bones I suffered. I feel this issue needs to be looked into for at the very least to prevent further accident injuries. My car had been in for service multiple times over the year prior for engine issues and my engine did need to be rebuilt. I feel that my airbags may have been faulty as well. I am asking that Toyota be investigated for their practices and that I be compensated at the very least for wages lost due to time lost from work and medical expenses. Thank you for your time.

I have a Toyota Camry 2008 with 31,500 miles dashboard are melty and sticky, my concern is this affect air bags also this looks like a manufacture defect due to many complains on networks. I went to a Toyota dealer they'r willing to replace the dashboard and I have to pay for labor. That's is telling you they are aware of the problem. I decide to fixed but I told them is any recall comes up they will need to reimburse my money due to this is factory defect. This is a safety hazard we are not sure this affect airbags and shine reflect on the dashboard can affect your vision while you are driving.

car   Air Bag problem 7
Failure Date: 07/21/2014

The vehicle suddenly lost control and was not responding to the steering. It started swaying and hit the cement barrier on the left. This looks like a internal car failure. I have had this car for since 2008 and had bought it brand new. It is completely up to date with the maintenance and oil change etc.

car   Air Bag problem 8
Failure Date: 11/01/2013

Overnight my 2008 Camry solara dashboard has multiple cracks and has become tacky and shiny. This manufacturer defect continues to progress to current date. It is a safety issue because it causes a glare when sun is in direction of travel or sun is below 70 degree plane to reflect off the dash surface. Polarized sunglasses defer some of the glare. There is a safety concerned with the cracks expanding and changing and the gummy surface blending around airbag location which will prevent passenger airbag to deploy. Toyota USA and dealer will repair at my cost with a very nominal cost adjustment about 20% for replacing the dash surface. The car is in excellent shape, always garage kept at work or residence. There are thousands of Toyota cars or perhaps tens of thousands with the same issue over multiple manufacturer years. The defect becomes an issue shortly after the cars pass the warranty period.

car   Air Bag problem 13
Failure Date: 07/04/2011

I have 2008 Camry and have had a melting dashboard for few years. This is absolutely a safety issue because the melted surface reflects sunlight onto the windshield making it difficult to see through the glare. In addition the melted dashboard could fuse with the airbag cover and cause it to malfunction. I question what kind of chemicals may be released in the air as well.
