#5 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2009 Toyota Camry
The car was a 2009 Toyota Camry. I have Camry 2009. It currently has 34400 miles. According to Toyota dealer - after a technician tests drive the vehicle - the issue is described "downshift issue under heavy brake". Below is details of the problem. After I apply brake at stop sign or traffic light, the vehicle is stopped but then vehicle is still jumping up - moving up just right after it stops. Below is how Toyota responds on the issue. On August 5th, 2011, I bring the car to Toyota dealer. The technician is able to duplicate the issue and open a case number reporting to gst (gulf state Toyota). I have to wait for an appointment with gst and Toyota dealer until 8/30/2011. On August 31st, I brought the car in 2nd time so that the dealer can collect more information and send to gst (according to the dealer). The dealer told me they could not duplicate the issue last time. But they will need to re-program (software) on the computer system so that the computer system can re-learn the shifting pattern of the transmission. Here is my opinions. I am not convinced at all this will re-solve the issue. The issue might appear again any time. Here are some more facts. During the waiting time - 3 weeks - I do not drive the vehicle at all. The dealer certainly does not drive the vehicle long enough before they can see the issue again. When I drive the vehicle to the dealer on the 2nd time, I see it happens twice. This kind of issue absolutely makes me very nervous when I have to apply braking. I hope Toyota can root cause this issue as soon as possible. Who knows this issue can be worst and totally out of controls one day. It was Jul. 1, 2011 when this automatic transmission issue happened.

2011 Toyota Camry le, under 3,000 miles on car, sluggish drive as though I am pulling a trailor or something behind the car. Vehicle jerking in and out of gears. Loud thump sound twice from underneath the car as though something broke. In additon to the car at a stop sign brake engaged and car jerked forward. Proceeded home and parked car and proceeded to exit car and the vehicle accelerated forwrd. As I turn to see if the car was not in the park postion it was and I am terrified to have this car at home my daughter was in the area a few minutes before and she would have been hit by the car if she was still there. I have filed a complaint with Toyota and took back to dealership for them to take a look, and the only thing they can do is try and recreate the problem if it does not do the same thing when they try and recreate it then it will be closed and deems not an isssue. This is an issue and I do not feel safe with what happend. This automatic transmission issue occurred Thursday, July 14, 2011.

#7 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2011 Toyota Camry
The car was a 2011 Toyota Camry. The VIN of the car is 4T1BF3EK2B_. Very harsh/coarse shifting of transmission during upshift and downshift especially around 20mph and between 35-39mph.

#8 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
The car involved is a 2010 Toyota Camry. My car jerks at low speeds during stop and go traffic during my daily commute from work. The movement is very noticeable and you can feel that something is wrong with the transmission. This is a brand new car (2010) with 25, 584 miles but it drives very rough as if its an older car. Transition from low speeds is not smooth at all. Typically, this surge occurs only between the speed range of 0-45/50 mph. Rpm gauge drastically jumps or increases, then falls back down momentarily. And it only occurs when driving in city or stop and go traffic before coming to a stop but while driving on speed limit on highway it is fine. The car shift/jumps sporadically causing vehicle to jump forward a little bit and causing delay before coming to a complete stop. I do not know what to do at this point, I have taken the car to the dealer twice already and they keep insisting that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I have been on two separate test drives with different technicians who have been unable to recreate the event. But obviously it is not something I can recreate while in the passengers seat. This is something that the tech has to be able to feel the harsh shifting transition him/her sellf. A shifting re-calibration has been performed once on the car but the jerking has continued to occur following the test. This is the first brand new car that I have bought and I completely frustrated with the dealer and Toyota. The reason I bought a Toyota is because I wanted a reliable and smooth car to drive to work everyday and I did not expect to be having these kinds of issues with a brand new car. I have been insulted by the dealership service dept and their list of cause factors ranging from possibly because I drive in heels, to having a/c turned on, to the car only providing maximum performance. It is all a bunch of excuses, I wish they would actually do something about this problem. However, I will continue to go in and be a nuisance until this issue is resolved. The failure date was 06/23/11.

#9 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
My wife had backed her 2007 Toyota Camry out of our garage onto the driveway to wash the car. The driveway is on a medium incline. She was in the process of cleaning the inside of the car along with our granddaughter. The car was in park and the ignition key in her pocket. After cleaning the inside passenger compartment with our granddaughter in the driver side she was in the process of walking around the front of the car in order to clean the driver compartment when our granddaughter was moving to the passenger side she hit the automatic transmission shifter it came out of park and rolled across the ally into the neighbors back fence. My wife got into the car and drove to the front of the house put the car in park, removed the key and was able to take the car out of park without her foot on the brake and the key removed. We took the car to Toyota dealer. The next day we picked the car up from the dealer and were told they could not duplicate the problem. They told us to take the car and if it happened again leave the car as is with the car out of gear, call them and they would send a tow truck. The next day my wife drove the car to the shopping mall. When she returned the car she was able to take the car out of park with the key out of the ignition. She was unable to get the service rep on the phone so she drove home and parked the car in the garage. Approximately 15 minutes later we all went out to the car and had her son try to take the car out of park without the key in the ignition which he did. There was no resistance in the shifter when removing from park and could freely move the shifter. We left the shifter in the drive position and called the dealer who sent a tow truck and had the drive verify the car could be shifted with the key out. The rep called and said the could not duplicate the problem. We have been trying to tell them all the have to do is drive the car for 15 min, wait 15 min then move out of park. The rep is not cooperating. It was Jun. 9, 2011 when this automatic transmission issue happened.

#16 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
Since the time I bought my new 2010 Toyota Camry, I saw issues with the way the car transmission worked at speeds from 0-50mph. Starting from the first week of my using the car, I went to the dealership a total of 4 times, only to be sent back after a "test drive" saying nothing is wrong. In my own language, I had been explaining the issue which now looks exactly similar to the 'sticking gas pedal" recall recently informed by Toyota. My car was still accelerating while braking, or would start braking when my foot is off the accelerator. I also used to feel a jerk when the car moved between speeds of 0-50mph. I commute 70 miles daily to work and I have noticed this daily to the point that I have started ignoring out of deep frustration. The dealer test drives and causes embarrassment saying they cannot recreate my issue. I logged an incident with Toyota (091214-000053). It led to my fourth visit to the dealer with the same answer. Toyota's response from a case manager was that if they cannot recreate they will not do anything. I almost feel this is a hopeless case as I don't think neither Toyota nor the dealership were truly serious about assisting me. They could have at least informed me that there are some potential issues with their vehicles that they are working on. I reopened a new case (100130-000604). So far I have received no recall notice from Toyota. I don't think they are handling this the right way. I haven't had any major incidents, but I don't think I can wait for that to happen to get the attention of Toyota or its dealer. This is not a Smart way of solving an issue. I feel disappointed, angry and helpless. This problem occurred on Friday, October 30, 2009.

#25 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
The vehicle is a 2010 Toyota Camry. The VIN of this vehicle was 4T1BF3EK2A_. Two weeks before, I had two recall fixes done for my 2010 Camry (sticky pedal, floor mat entrapment). Although for the initial two days, it looked like maybe it worked, since then the same old problems with the car are persisting. In the past, leading to the recall fix, I had lodged several complaints (including one before the gas pedal recall announcement) with Toyota and their dealer. My car has a weird transmission at speeds 0-45mph. The braking is also not smooth and it does feel like the car is for a second not accelerating when it should or brake when it should. At this time, I have given up on this as it seems to be a waste of time trying to explain my position and get it fixed. A second attempt to reach out to Toyota through their website (since their 1800 support number keeps you waiting forever) - [incident: 100130-000604] on 1/30. There was no response from Toyota on this. This problem occurred on 02/22/2010.

#27 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
The vehicle was a 2010 Toyota Camry. The VIN of the car is 4T1BF3EK9A_. My cars transmission shifting is very rough and "clunky" when coming to a stop sign or traffic light. Many times the car will seem to downshift resulting in a strong pulling (almost a braking sensation) preventing a normal coasting to a stop since, you need to keep pressing the accelerator to counteract the downshifting during a slow down. This has almost caused an accident several times. Also, conversely, the transmission seems to push the car forward in the final breaking moments due to the transmission shifting patterns. I have almost bumped the car in front of me a few times because of this. I have taken the car to the dealership and the transmission has been recalibrated several times resulting in a temporary fix but, the problem returns, sometimes in less than 24 hours of the recalibrating. I believe this is a safety concern due to my experiences of near accidents with my car. This automatic transmission problem happened on 03/14/2010.
#28 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
The vehicle is a 2010 Toyota Camry. My 2010 Camry has been to the dealer a few times. Know one seems to be able to duplicate the acceleration surge I'm experiencing. I contacted Toyota directly. They sent me to different dealer. Dealer had it for a day and said the same thing "can't duplicate" I think they have all been schooled to say this. I had the service manager ride with me and told him to watch the rpm dial when I go to stop. He saw the rpm dial move up to almost 2000 when I hit the brake. He had me drive another 2010 Camry and it did the same thing. I had a 98 avalon and a 03 Camry that did not do this. He explained to me that this is the way these new cars down sift and it's different than the older Toyotas. He assured me that my car is safe and I have nothing to worry about. After reading all of the other complaints here I'm not 100% sold that this is normal down sifting. I think I'm going to take this to arbitration. I hate to do this because I love my new car. . . I'm just really nervous driving it. This issue happened on Monday, Aug. 3, 2009.
#29 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
I have a Toyota Camry xle 2010 that I purchased late last year. The vehicle was working normally during the recall period lately. However, after receiving the recall notice from Toyota, I brought it to the dealer to have it fixed on the protential problems. That was done about 2 weeks ago. The service manager to me that they would update the computer system so that if the gas pedal and the break are applied at the same time, the system will cut off or reduce its power for safety. During the last 2 weeks the vehicle seemed to be working fine. Then last week I brought it back to the same dealer (team Toyota, PA) to have an oil change. This morning (Tuesday 03/23/2010) I've noticed a problem on my vehicle while driving: when I step on the gas pedal to move forward I can feel that the vehicle tried a bit harder than normal, but as soon as I lift up my foot off the gas pedal, the vehicle seems to slow down or lost its power so fast that it lost its momentum quickly and feeling like someone is stepping on the break. This seems to be a reverse affect of the recalled problem. I'm feeling nervous. I'm going to call the dealer today, but I'm pretty sure they couldn't do anything about it until the problem is recognized by Toyota themselves. This automatic transmission issue occurred 03/23/2010.
#30 - Automatic Transmission problem of the 2010 Toyota Camry
The vehicle is a 2010 Toyota Camry. Tuesday April 27 I was driving my 2010 Camry in the great smoky mountains descending a mountain road. I tested downshifting at several speeds into various gears to determine if it was possible to slow down the car under runaway accelerator conditions. I had wrongly assumed that bad drivers had failed to use the controls of the car to slow down and stop such vehicles. The computer refused to accept my command to downshift into 1st gear at speeds above 25 mph. I did not try higher speeds into 2nd. Clearly the product manager and program engineers at Toyota do not understand that saving the transmission or engine from stress could lead to destruction of that same car and it's occupants in their foolish decision to limit driver command and control. A fault in the computer could lead to entire failure of the transmission shift commands and engine control system ecu. This same flawed thinking has led to many airbus aircraft fatal crashes. The flight control computer feels it is more intelligent that the stupid captain at the controls so it will not allow a flight control input it does not agree with. When the sensors are defective, or the flight envelope requires emergency actions, etc. , tough luck. Now, I realize that Toyota has followed the same flawed thinking. I am an instrument rated pilot and I believe the operator should have total control of the vehicle. No command interlocks to prevent emergency operations should be tolerated. How can I trust this vehicle now that I know it will kill due to programming errors even if I try to regain control in a normal manner?. This automatic transmission issue occurred April 27, 2010.
