I purchased a used/certified 2008 Toyota Camry in 2012. I had not noticed any problems with the car until about a month ago when I kept hearing a bumping sound coming from the the passenger rear tire, after having the tires air pressure checked the problem seemed to be gone. However, later the car began pulling to the left, whenever I drove on a side street, the pulling was not there on the freeway. Things changed on this past Sunday, on my way to take my grandchildren home from church the steering wheel was uncontrollable and the car pulled sharply to the left and I decided to pull off the street, I was afraid to continue driving because I didn't want to put my grandchildren in any further danger. I had to call my daughter to come pick us up. The car was taken to the repair shop to get a wheel alignment. I told them about the problem with the steering wheel they assured me that they would be able to take care of the problem. The problem with the steering is still there, why hasn't there been a recall for this problem. I am afraid to drive my car!.

My car is hard to steer when I go around curves on the street of the mountains where I live. It feels as if I could drive right off of the mountain if I don't quickly correct the steering. It is as though it is slipping and accelerating as if I am losing control of the car. It is a frightening feeling as if it is pulling against what I am trying to do, such as turning the steering wheel to make it around curves safely.

Failure Date: 06/20/2015

I was driving my 2007 Toyota Camry le about 55 miles an hour on a three lane interstate freeway. I was in the slow lane and my car suddenly and violently turned to the left, causing the car to hit a large RV in the center lane. The car continue spinning across the fast lane (it's amazing no cars were in that lane because traffic was fairly heavy). The back end of my car hit the center cement barrier hard (car totaled) and I came to a stop on the inside shoulder facing the opposite direction of where I was originally traveling. The airbag did not go off and the locking part of the seatbelt didn't seem to work. I could have been easily killed or killed someone else. I will contact Toyota. There is no excuse for this.

5/13/2015: 2007 Toyota Camry. Vsc (vehicle stability control) light came on (5/9/2015). It was very difficult to stop the vehicle. Had to floor the brakes in order to stop the vehicle. The steering was all over the place, not tight with the steering wheel movements. Brought it to the dealership (new country Toyota of clifton park, NY) where we bought it 9 months ago and they said this is a common part that fails. If this is true, there should be a recall. . . This is a huge safety issue. I am thankful that my son didn't get in an accident. They now want $2500 to repair it. When we purchased this vehicle for our son 9 months ago, they said that we can get 250,000 miles out of it, it was a very safe car for our son to be in. . . . I beg to differ!!! I see lots of complaints listed for this electronic stability contol and hope there will be a recall.

Failure Date: 05/11/2015

While driving on highway the vehicle suddenly lost steering with no ability for the driver to control direction of the car. Car departed from its lane and then crossed two lanes involuntarily but lanes were free of traffic so an accident was avoided. At the same time the car shook and vibrated. The driver immediately braked and the brakes did reduce the speed of the car. The ability to steer was recovered after approximately 1 minute. The car was towed to a service station. A review of the computer data (trouble codes) indicated a failure of the abs actuator and steering angle sensor. Maurice at the Toyota customer experience center aid the Toyota company will not take any responsibility for the failure and he also said that, "no assistance would be given" as the car was out of warranty. We have a case number filed with Toyota. Toyota says this hazardous and terrifying incident is not the result of a design flaw or a manufacturing defect. We have lost confidence in the safety of this Toyota vehicle.

The tire pressure tends to fluctuate often requiring weekly air check to maintain the proper psi. The driver front tire psi cold will read 36 , front pass 34 , rear drive r35, rear pass at 36, when the tires heat up after appx. 38 mile out and you check the psi it will read 39, 39. 36,37, or at time you may get 39,37. 39. F you have to come to a stop light, sudden stop, or a stop at night on a non familiar road like I had to in the rain on a uneven road the vehicles tail end tends to slide to the left and the front end feels as if you hit a pot hole do to slight wear and tear groves in the road that don't become apparent until your on that 1 to 2 feet section in the road. Is this a common complaint with any others or am I over being over concerned with the drive performance on uneven pavement or roads. My concern is the abuse on the brake components, the steering , the tires , fuel consumption and keeping control of your vehicle . Is it a computer problem, wheel component, tires, or me or all of the above. I purchased my Toyota for durability, efficacy, and my family safety on the road .

Key will not turn to start car. Steering wheel lock goes in and out. Eventually (5-20 minutes) do something that works (don't know what) and car will start.
