My 2012 Camry hybird with leather seats. My problem seems to be related to the weight of the previous occupant, ie, if over 200 lbs and it will probably work correctly. But if the exited occupant was less than 200 lbs, the air bag will alarm and message for the (former occupant) passenger to use the seat belt. I'm trying to get Toyota to correct the problem but they warn me that I may have to pay to correct something that never occured before their recall.

Upon impact (car was rear ended) the passenger seat popped, broke in a reclining position. That shouldn't have happen. I think it should have stayed in an up right position.

Air bag light came on intermittently for weeks before coming on in February 2015. Thinking it was not urgent, I took the car into the dealership and they ran the code. They informed me that the air bag computer sensor had failed which was located in the passenger seat and had to be replaced, totally $3300 for parts. Air bags may not deploy properly or deploy unexpectedly until fixed. Expensive repair for car nearing end of its life.

Seat no longer moves forward or backward but twists like only the inside track is making contact with the gears. I can see the outer gear turning but no contact with worm gear.

I drove this 2012 Camry on the high way to nashville TN for 8 days vocation started 28 June 2014, lot of water coming out from carpet, had to stop and clean water in every couple hours(my hand was injured when cleaning up water). After I arrived a hotel, I searched on the internet and found out that Toyota had a recall in Dec 2013 on this a/c water leak, it can cause "airbag warning light", electronic power steering light", or other problems. We are very worried about car may cause accident in the whole vocation. ------ after back to rochester NY, called Toyota and they told me go to Toyota service to repair this problem; so I went to henrietta NY Toyota service and told them a/c water leak, they said they will fix that, on the service report printed:" customer states there is a water leak", "work performed by xxxx", "cleaned a/c drain". But the manager lied to me, he said there is no recall. ------ not sure if it is totally fixed, car still very moist, smell is bad, even after open car's 4 doors, put the carpet bask in the sun for few days. ------ yesterday, I found another Toyota service report and recall letter from Toyota on 12/28/2013, and this report shows they "performed work by xxxx. " . I totally forgot this car recalled and already performed the "fix" for a/c water leak problem, obviously, Toyota service did not fix this problem and they lied to me. ------ this Camry has damage under carpet because of water leak, it may cause some electric circuits problems in the future, I don't want to be worry everyday, so I don't want this car any more (the lease term will end in one more year and a month, I paid $3000 down payment for 3 year lease, also every month payment). What is my choice? ------ thanks!.
Was involved in a traffic accident where vehicle was at a complete stop waiting to exit freeway: backup on freeway exit, was rear ended at high speed by another vehicle. Causing chain reaction crash, vehicle was sandwiched between two vehicles. Vehicle flooring became deformed which may have contributed to driver's seat collapsing and most importantly for the seat belt to fail causing me to bang my face into the steering wheel. I found the seat belt was unbuckled after the crash. Airbags did deploy.

Driver's seat rocks back and forth and is loose on the track that secures it to the floor. After inspection by a certified Toyota dealership it was stated that this is "normal". The condition seems to be getting worst as time goes on. Concern lies in whether or not the seat is securely bolted down (they confirmed it is) but is just loose within the track and if so what would happen in the case of a collision? the seat is a safety hazard and needs to be addressed.

Nhtsa recall # 14v024 indicates an open recall on this vehicle issued Jan. 29, 2014 stating this repair should have been completed while in dealer inventory prior to retail delivery. I did not take delivery until March, 2014, and this repair was not completed prior to delivery. The recall further states customer owned vehicles are not covered by this action. Since this repair should have been completed prior to my taking delivery, do I have any recourse with this dealer to have the repair completed?.
With the announcement of seat fabric not meeting flammable standards on 2014 Toyota's with heated seats and ordering their dealers to stop selling affected vehicles until they get new seat fabric, I do not feel safe using my heated seats. If Toyota can not or will not sell any more vehicles until this issue has been fixed, for the safety and peace of mind of all current owners, this issue must also be addressed, recalled and fixed immediately. I have used this feature daily during this cold winter and will no longer feel safe doing so until it has been fixed. The NHTSA must force a recall of existing vehicles before there is an injury or fire not after one occurs. The heated car seat is a seasonal use feature where the degradation of the material and possible resulting fire may not show up for several seasons. I, personally, have noticed that the heated seat at the high setting becomes very hot where I can feel that it is very uncomfortable through a heavy, winter coat. With the announcement today, I am concerned that this could be a sign of a serious problem. Please issue a recall to fix this potential, serious problem.
I bought this car from suburban Toyota. Within a month I started getting severe neck pain. I went to the dealer and complained about it. Dealer checked and suggested everything is alright with the seats. Feb 28th - I waited for another month or so and went for first service around 4,700 miles. . . Again I told the dealer that I can't drive any longer and the issue with the "head rest" need to be fixed. Dealer told me that they cannot do anything as they do not see mechanical issue with the seat. Feb 28th - as my grievances were not addressed, I called Toyota customer support (800) 331-4331 and discussed the issue. The customer support representative registered a complaint but told me that they have not heard any issues related to seat or head rest for Camry 2014 model cars. My neck pain is increasing as I drive this car. I suspect that there must be design flaw with this model year Camry. I sincerely request you to look into this issue as it would lead to physical disability over a period.
Noticed that the air bag light is on constantly, the seat belt light keeps flashing and the passenger air bag light is always off even if a heavy adult is sitting in it. The seat belt light keeps flashing always. Noticed this but thought as most times drive alone thought that as there is no passenger in the passenger seat most of the times and attributed the cause of the flashing seat belt light for that. But now know that this is definitely a safety issue.
Drivers seat started to go up and down when going over humps in road and body weight was transferred up. You could feel the threads from a bolt were rubbing on a metal part. Within a week the travel had more than doubled and was happening while getting in and out. Brought into dealer for safety concern and warranty (car only 2 1/2 yrs old) and they said they pushed and pulled and it snapped back into place. I was then advised there was a $58. 50 charge for an "adjustment". The dealer would not release the car without payment so I signed off and paid to get the keys. I called Toyota but they stated the dealer was independent and they could not make them reimburse me. Toyota offered me a jacket or a duffel bag, which I refused.

I have noticed that when driving and stopping my driver seat shifts and move. Not sure if anyone else is having this issue. I am having the issue with the sticky dashboard and read that it is from the melting of the dashboard, yet the year of my car is not on the recall list to get if corrected. I just noticed that when I start my car you have a noise coming from under the hood. Again not sure if anyone else is having this issue or not. My ac button will show that it is on but it actually is on. It is like the sensor is going out on it.
