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.

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.

I purchased a new Toyota Camry in 2003. Approximately two years later the drivers electric seat failed. The gears lowering and raising the back part of the seat were grinding and could not position the seat back in a comfortable position. Toyota of manhattan beach repaired the seat in under warranty instead of replacing it as I had requested. Approximately two years later the chair failed again in the same manner. Toyota of pasadena repaired it under warranty in 7/07 instead of replacing the seat as I had requested. However, they failed to fix the root cause of the problem. In September/09 the seat failed yet a third time in the same manner. (it is hard to tell when exactly the seat actually failed since I exercise the controls no more than once or twice a year). I brought it in to Toyota of pasadena for inspection. They told me they would look into having Toyota repair it under warranty but never called back. After complaining to Toyota corporate Toyota of pasadenas customer service manager called back and told me they only warrant their work for one year. I told her that the seat was a lemon and should be replaced under the original warranty. I also pointed out to her that it was a safety issue if the seat became stuck in the wrong position but she didn't want to do anything more.

The following paragraphs are extracted from a complaint filed with Toyota customer experience center in California. The full text is available upon request: "this particular car is equipped with driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags and front and rear side curtain airbags. I had specifically looked for a Camry having this enhanced safety option, it also came with a higher price than a regular Camry le. I was willing to pay the price on the basis that I would make a wise investment in my own safety. Things turned out contrary to my expectations, as I will explain in the following. Not long after my purchasing the vehicle I noticed that the drivers seat is utterly uncomfortable, somehow uneven with the left side of the seat (the side next to the door) being stiffer and somehow pushing forward while the right side is leaning back and much softer. As a result the drivers upper body will be twisted, the left side forward while the right side leaning backwards. I first assumed this is a temporary condition. Like with everything new it may take some time until things get adjusted and after some use I figured, the seat may somehow loosen up a little. I continuously kept on trying to arrive at a comfortable position by adjusting my position in the seat but my efforts were unsuccessful. "
"at this point I am increasingly finding it difficult to continue to drive my car essentially because of my being unable to find any comfortable position in my seat. I keep on twisting and turning, continuously readjusting my seating position. I could not stay more than five minutes in the same position in this seat. And during those rare five minute periods my back is not fully leaning against the backrest, half of my back does not lean on anything unless I accept a painful position where my upper body is rotated diagonally and is facing right relative to the normal (straight ahead) seating position. My driving is significantly impaired because of this. . . ".
