While driving at various speeds the speedometer goes to 0 even though the car is still performing and accelerating. The abs light comes on and the dealer said that the abs actuator needs to be replaced. It seems like this is a known issue especially with the hybrid model and should be recalled and repaired by Toyota.

While driving the dash instruments go crazy. The tacho shows 0 the warning lights turn on and off. Abs light comes on and the whole electronic dash malfunctions. My daughter that drives the car told me that she feels that the car will explode. From my research I found out the abs module is the cause of this malfunctions. It is dangerous to drive the car with abs acting up. Toyota should recall the abs modules and replace them with good ones. It happens in the city and or the highway or when stopped. Thanks.

I was driving the Camry when I reached a complete stop my check engine light came on, didn't really notice any change, two days later I notice gas consumption has increased. I took the Camry into dealer, dealer diagnosed the check engine to be a faulty O2 sensor. Replaced O2 sensor and drove off to pick up my kids from school, as we are driving home, I came to a traffic light, I stopped and check engine light and abs light came on idle was disrupted briefly. I proceeded and when trying to stop car the brake pedal had become very tight to were I had to stomp on brakes with all my might to get car to stop. Drop kids off at home waited 15 minutes and started vehicle, abs light was off but check engine remained on, brake pedal was almost back to normal. I drove car to dealer again, the dealer said it is a faulty brake booster which is allowing too much air into system which in return signals for more fuel to be pumped to compensate vacuum leak. Brake booster not covered under extended warranty, and very costly 1,363. 16 parts, labor and taxes, not counting the 4 day rental. This concerns me because I beleive this to be a safety issue, if it were my wife driving the Camry with my kids she would not be able to stop the vehicle without any warning. Toyota needs to make this a safety recall before something tragic happens. I looked at Toyota forums and it seems I'm not alone, brake booster for several other Toyota models have gone bad, after 100,000 miles some at 70,000. 2007 Toyota Camry seems like a horrible guinea pig car.

The brake and abs indicator light started to come on intermittently. I checked the brake fluid container and it was extremely low. I added brake fluid. This concerned me because I had my car serviced less than two months and felt they should have noticed that the fluid level was low. The brake and abs indicator light continued to come on intermittently. I took my my car to the dealership; a diagnostic test was performed and I was informed that I needed to replace the brake actuator. Total cost was $2,086. 40. Since I've had the brake actuator replaced, I've noticed that the delayed brake response no longer exists.

I actually just bought a used 2007 hybrid Camry last Monday. There were no indicators on the dash and it looked great. 2 days later the check vsc system and abs lights come on the dash. I took to the dealer immediately and the problem is the same as everyone else here, failure in brake accumulator. The technician was very adamant about me parking the car immediately until repairs are completed. He said the brakes can go out at any time, vehicle is unsafe to drive. The repairs are going cost over $1500.

For two years now, the "check vsc" light will come on intermittently. It has happened both when I am in motion as well as stationary. At that time, several other lights on the cluster such as the abs light will come on. The brakes become very sluggish but I can ultimately stop the car. The warning lights will eventually go out, usually after I turn off the car and restart it. Once the warning lights are off, the brakes work normally. The brakes are now making a barking sound when depressed. My mechanic says I need a new abs system which will cost thousands of dollars.

I have a 2007 Camry le and in 2013 I noticed the abs and break lights on the dashboard come on intermittently, tachometer bounces up and down and speedometer shows 0. This kept happening intermittently. This is a huge safety issue, since when driving on the highway, if it doesn't show the correct reading on the speedo meter and the breaks may not function as expected which might lead to accidents. I got it checked(diagnostics test) at a Toyota dealership and they indicated that the abs actuator unit is faulty and needs to be replaced and the cost would be around $2000. I called Toyota to complain since this is an electrical/electronic component and nothing really related to ware and tear, they indicated there are no recalls for abs actuator assembly. I looked online and found that Camry hybrids 2007 have the same problem and Toyota is providing "warranty extension" for owners who experienced this problem. I believe the same warranty extension for abs actuator should apply to 2007 Camry non hybrid models also. Seeking NHTSA help in this regard.

The first incident, the abs light came on, I turned off the car and started it again it stayed on and when I got on the road, I had to press the brakes all the way to the floor to get the car to stop. The next time, it did the same thing and after driving a while it will just release and the brakes will be back to normal. I took it to the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong the first time because the light was off. The next time the light came on I brought it back but by the time they got the car to the back to test, the light was off again and they can't get the computer program to give an error message again. The third time, I brought it in and he came to the lane and tested it and told me it was the brake system accuator, like so many others I have been reading about. Each time this happens I have to push the brakes all the way to the floor to stop, I'm afraid I may be on the highway going a faster speed when it happens and have an accident. At this point, the car has disengaged the air bags so if there is an accident the air bags will not engage, which is another concern. $2200. 00 to repair, nearly 10% of the cost of what I paid for the car. I drive two teenage girls, my daughter and an International student who resides with us and I worry constantly about the brakes failing while we are driving due to this safety issue that I feel like Toyota should fix because of the high rate of failures. I've been saving for the repair but haven't gotten it all yet.

The abs light on my 2008 Toyota Camry came on on Monday, June 24th. The ac started blowing warm air, and the rpm and temperature gauges started fluttering. Stadium Toyota in tampa, FL had me bring it in and diagnosed that the abs actuator had gone out. This backfeeds electricity into the entire vehicle. I did some research online and have found this is a fairly common problem on Toyotas. I have to pay $2300 for the repair, which is for a computer of which I had nothing to do with it malfunctioning. The abs is obviously one of the most important features, and I can't imagine everyone can afford it. Is Toyota setting up the roads to be filled with vehicles without abs?.

I initially began noticing that when the ac does not blow cold air when turned on that all of the gauges on my dashboard stop working including, speedometer dropping to 0 while I am driving so that I do not know at what speed I am driving, my gas gauge inexplicably drops to empty, lights on the dashboard stop working and my dashboard goes dark, rpm gauge flickers wildly, brake & abs lights do not go off, and occasionally the car stops but with hesitation when braking, along with interior fogging of all windows when it rains (sometimes defroster/fans work to defog windows but sometimes it does not causing my visibility while driving to be substantially and dangerously reduced). During some online research, I believed that the issues might be related to an earlier recall so I called the Toyota corporate office and they indicated that it may be related but to take the car to my local Toyota dealership to confirm. I took the car to Toyota of hollywood and the manager stated that it was not related to the recall and that the main computer was malfunctioning and causing the subcomputers to also malfunction and estimated a repair price of $2500. While I was doing my online research, it appears that many 2007 Camrys are having the same exact issues I am having and in addition, the Toyota Camry hybrids had been recalled for the same issues as well. I do not believe I should incur the expense of repairs for issues that seem to be related to a manufacturers defect.

I bought this car new and have had nothing but trouble since leaving the lot. Biggest issue being in April 2012 began having issues with car burning/loosing oil. Car would loose 1 quart or more with in 200 miles. Have taken it to mechanicsville Toyota on different occasions and had a oil consumption test done only to be told I need to replace the motor and it is not covered under warranty not only due to mileage but not being a loyal customer and not having my service work done there. My husband is a mechanic and has done all the service work by the book. My issues happen at various speeds where the car will jerk, shake, accelerate and decelerate while the abs light, traction control light comes on and the check engine light comes on and will blink well over 20 times before staying lit. I had to drive around with a case of oil in my car never knowing when I would need to add. I have had to borrow a car from my family as I no longer feel safe driving this one. It can at any given moment leave me or just stall while driving. I have kept detailed notes from going back and forth to the dealer. As you can see by the other complaints this is a know problem with Toyota with the piston rings/seals, etc. Even though I know my ar is no longer covered under warranty, I feel Toyota being such a well known company and harping about safety should step up and do something with or without government assistance, and do something about this. I know I will never buy another Toyota vehicle as they do not stand behind them.

My 2004 Toyota Camry has started to "hold back" when I drive it. Then the abs light came on and started flashing and when I stepped on the brakes, the flashing light went off. I called the lancaster PA Toyota dealer and the service department said that as long as it is intermittent and not constant, it is nothing to worry about. But I wonder how many other Toyota customers have had problems with their anti-lock braking systems.
