I just got in the car and was driving when I smelled something burning. It was at night so I could not see where it was coming from so I pulled over and noticed smoke was coming from the front left driver side door and even through the window switch. I turned around and went back home so I can turn the car off and let the smoke escape the car. It stopped smoking after awhile but now I cant use none of my windows except the driver side. The other switches are stuck they wont move seemed like that what was burning. This definitely needs to be investigated because with a car only 4 years old, this should not be happening. The car has been well maintained. Called Toyota and the main power window switch is 350, something that I should not be responsible for.

The windows on my 2005 Toyota solara have problems. About 6 months ago I started to hear the windows to drag when being put up or down. The passenger window has a piece in the door now that rattles and slides around inside the door, when the window goes up it goes up too far and it sticks out of the rubber barrier it suppose to seal in. I worry if I have a wreck the window may not be secure enough to protect me from shattering since it does not seal in itself. I had contacted haley Toyota dealership and they told me some people had window complaints but would not tell me how many. Their answer is electric motors break. My 2005 solara has only 28,000 miles on it and I bought one of the first ones on the lot in 2005. I have been told it could possibly cost me $300. 00 or more to fix. The driver window is starting to get sluggish now and probably be the same problem to arise with this window. I don't think a car with only 28000 miles on it in 5 years should have this problem. I think I might not be the only one with window problems. The dealership was very defensive about the call I made to them about the recall on the Toyota's if mine was included in the recall list. They don't give you any info on anything. I was told back when the recall was done by haley Toyota in roanoke va that it was not problem. They said the problem was people were putting think floor mats on top of the Toyota mats. Just don't worry about it they said back when the first recall was out for the floor mats. This is not good business. This is the second Toyota I have bought.

I was driving my 2005 Toyota Camry. I opened the front windows for one second for fresh air and while closing, the passenger side window didn't come up. I tried both from driver's side and passenger side switches and it didn't work. I got this car as brand new in mid 2005 and I hardly opened the front windows. I hardly have any passenger in my car. Bottom-line, the window has been rarely used since I got it and it cannot just stop working unless there is some manufacturing defect. It went down but didn't come up. Rest three windows are working fine. I think there is serious manufacturing problem with 2005 Camry.

If you try to put the window down (driver's window), it comes off track - no previous problems, just happened when I tried to let it down.

I pulled the passenger side window up to close it, I did not see my friend's finger there, the glass cut the skin of the finger tip area and it was bleeding. I have tried myself and the glass pushed my finger very hard. A child finger bone can be broken easily. There is no safety on all the windows. This is very bad for kids or families.

We purchased a used (about 43,000 miles) 2001 Toyota Camry le ) at the end of June 2006. Every thing works fine since we purchased it. The previous owner is a friend of mine, who always did regular maintenance and oil changes in Toyota dealer and left all maintenance records to me. After we got the car, we had changed brand new tires, new brakes, replaced driver side auto window motor, and also done oil changes regularly. On June 11, 2007, I took my Camry to mechanic to do oil and brake changes. No problem was reported. The total mileage on that car was less than 49,600 miles at that time. On Friday, July 20, 2007, at 11:00 am, my wife drove kids from home to local library for about 7 minutes. After parking in the library parking lot, walking into library, a few minutes later, the librarian announced and asked the owner of Camry with the specific plate number to go to front lobby. However, the librarian did not state the reason. My wife thought she parked well without any violation, so she did not pay too much attention to the first announcement. After librarian's second announcement, my wife felt that the plate number sounded familiar, so she went to front lobby to check out what's happening. When my wife got out to the parking lot, she saw police car and fire truck, and her car was burned out. All of the parts inside the engine cover were all melted. The fire also damaged the right front panel of the car parked next to my Camry. I asked my mechanic to tow my car to his repair shop and checked my car. He told me that this car is not repairable and is totaled. I had contacted Toyota corporate office customer experience center regarding my Camry engine fire since July 23, 2007. The case manager - sandra told me that she would send my case to Toyota's claim department and someone will contact me to investigate my car. However, it had been two weeks since my first contact with Toyota, I had not received phone call from Toyota claim department.

I am reporting this due to the recall on the 2004 corolla for defective passenger window mechanism. I have a 2004 solara that experienced the same failure. Toyota refused to fix the problem, even with an extended warranty. The window, when rolled up would not stop because part of the window mechanism came loose and fell off.
