Failure Date: 10/12/2014

The dashboard on my 2008 Camry has become increasingly soft and sticky over the past year. It is sticky to the touch and feels like you are touching the back of some kind of tape. Everything sticks to it and it is extremely hard to clean. This problem has gotten worse over the course of calendar year 2014. My car does stay outside, so probably does get more sun than if it stayed in a garage; however, a dashboard should not start to melt just because a car has been out in the sun. I have put no type of cleaner on the dashboard except for maybe an occasional wipe down with armorall (a product that should not cause this situation). The more the dashboard melts and gets sticky, the more I have noticed a bright glare coming off of it, which I am concerned could cause some visibility issues while driving the car. I kept my previous Toyota for over 10 years, and never had an issue like this. I believe this is a defect with this model car and that Toyota should do the responsible thing and fix/correct this problem for people who are experiencing the same issue.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and I purchased a extended warranty when I bought the car in 2007 that warranty expired August 1, 2013 a few days after it had expired my driver side visor will not stay up! I do not hang anything on it like cd holder or anything. It is driving me crazy because it makes it very hard to see the road when I am driving and I feel this should be recalled sense there has been multiple complaints for the 2007 Camry with this same situation and it is a safety problem for many Camry owners. The visor sometimes even hits me in the head when I try to get out of my car. I have had many issues with this car from day one and I am not very happy that this has not been recalled yet. Seems like Toyota does not care for the safety of their customers. Also on top of the visor my shock coil broke on the passenger side which the extended warranty did cover sense it happened before August 1st but now the strut is leaking oil on that same side, I brought it to the Toyota dealer in June 2013 and they told me they won't replace it because even though it is leaking oil it is not 100% broken yet and told me the warranty wont cover it until it completely blows! I told them I have a young child that I have to think of this safety along with mine and was shocked that even though it is leaking oil (which is not good) cause at any moment while driving it can bust that Toyota doesn't recognize it, its not like it will heal on its own so I feel it should have been replaced under my warranty that I paid almost $1000. 00 for when I purchased the car! I hope Toyota will recall the visor issue for their customers. I am going to contact Toyota directly on Monday to see if I can get anywhere with this safety issue.

My sun visors on both sides have messed up and now have both been replaced. My cd player also started messing up earlier this year. It says there's a cd in, but there's not. You can't load a cd or eject it. The service center at the Toyota dealership told me they don't see anything jammed in there and that I would be better off replacing it with an aftermarket stereo system b/c it would be cheaper and they would have to send my car off to have it fixed. Hopefully, I'm not the only one experiencing this problem and a recall will be issued!.

The visor on my 2008 Toyota Camry broke. Up until now I had no issues with the car except that the cd player only works intermittently. Ended up having to take visor off; could not drive with it like that.

Failure Date: 03/11/2010

Despite being regularly maintained, very well taken care of, not abused, and less than average use (average 6700 mi/yr), this Toyota Camry (purchased new from a Toyota dealership in torrance, California) has never worked properly for long. The factory-installed cd/cassette/radio system has been replaced three times, and now the cd player part yet again does not work at all. At only about 10000 miles, the air flow ratio sensor and manifold had to be replaced. Then there is the fact that about 95% of the time, the car will not start without the accelerator being depressed and held for 1 min, and even then the engine always sounds weak and only reaches about 500 rpm until pressing on the accelerator again. This has been going on since the odometer read 16603 miles. That was when the idle air control valve was first replaced. The situation seemed to improve, until 34800 miles, when the same problems with it not starting and being very weak resumed. At 35394 miles the idle air control valve was replaced for a 2nd time. At 47000 miles the same problems resumed. At 49180 miles, the car would (as usual) not start unless the accelerator was pressed for 1 min. Then it ran at only 500 rpm. As it was then being driven out of an alley, the engine suddenly spontaneously boosted to 1200 rpm, nearly causing a collision. This type of impetuous acceleration started frequently occurring. Toyota refused to help with this problem, only saying to use premium gasoline, which proved to not solve the problem. Now the entire electrical system of the car has collapsed three times at 72173 mi, 75009 mi, and today (2010-03-11) at 75024 mi. The dishonesty of Toyota personnel is seen in its refusing to address the problem and earlier in fraudulently canceling the maintenance program that was part of the purchase of the vehicle after the car was paid for and its refusal to respond to written communication.

Within a few weeks, the rear power windows began opening on their own. The contact was driving approximately 20 mph when the brakes were engaged; however, the vehicle would not stop which caused her to crash into a vehicle in front of her. There were no injuries. The vehicle was towed to a body shop who advised the contact that there was also an electrical failure since the vehicle would start. The repair shop made several attempts to start the vehicle and was unsuccessful. The manufacturer advised her that the recall repair will start in April and that she would have to wait until then.

"melting" dashboard in heat is a serious problem. It gets sticky like duct tape and ultimately weakens and ruins the upholstery on the dash. Toyota needs to step up and correct this issue. It's a serious one.

I have a 1999 solara and ever since owning it, it's been one thing after another. The cd player skips when I press the brakes, the rotors needed resurfacing because the steering wheel and brake pads vibrated when breaking, the struts rattle badly and constantly, the driver side vanity mirror broke off, the driver side door control panel has came off twice now, I've replaced break light bulbs four times, the engine sputters at times at start up and will not stay running on it's own and the driver side seat rocks back and forth. The dealer fixed the seat once out of the 7 times I brought it in for repair finally said it's supposed to do that. I told them they fixed the problem once already so how can it be a normal thing? I sat in a new solara onthe showroon floor and that seat rocked too. The dealer replaced my cd player but the new skips at times but not nearly as often. The dealer claimed there's nothing wrong with the struts and refused to replace. Tired of one thing after another. . . This is my first and last Toyota.

02/23/04, dealer's invoice tocs12154: 04/19/04, dealer's invoice tocs14794. The cd and tape player went bad before the car was two years old. I did not discover this until there was 37,000 miles on the car. The warranty ran out at 35,000 miles. The cd/tape player part of the radio was not even used for a couple of months, so I was not aware there was a problem until after the warranty expired. The dealer charged me $250. 00 for a "used" radio they ordered from the manufacturer (a new radio was going to cost $850. 00). They were kind enough to not charge me for the installation. Since Toyota does not make the radios installed in their vehicles, Toyota would not help me with my problem. 03-08-04, dealer's invoice tocs12900:I have a problem with the brake system that concerns me more than the radio malfunction. There is a viabration when I slow down to stop the car. I took my car to the dealer to have this checked. They recommended that the front rotors be turned (for $170. 00) and that the rear brake drums be resurfaced (for $127. 50) by the time the dealer checked this for me, the car had 38,363 miles. The warranty expired at 35,000 miles! neither the dealer nor Toyota will do anything about the brakes. They considered it to be "normal" wear an tear. I have never had a radio go bad in any other car I have owned. My Subaru imprezza is over 10 years old! the imprezze still had its original brakes!.
