Toyota Camry owners have reported 401 problems related to steering (under the steering category).
On December 7,2017, I was in a parking lot in florida. As I started going into a parking space, the car began to surge. I had a loss of steering and braking. I almost hit the car next to me. Luckily that did not happen. I kept pressing down on the brake, but it took time for the steeering wheel to respond to me. I shut off the car because it seemed like the car had a mind of its own. I had 2 witnesses in the car. Who saw that my car was in drive, and that my foot was on the brake pedal. The passenger checked the floor mat, and it was lying completely flat. I do not know why I had this loss of control. This also happened to me in 2010, when I had unintended acceleration,and my car hit a tree. I am now afraid to drive my car, and willl not do so because I feel it is unsafe.

As soon as I bought the Toyota 2016 unit and started driving it I noticed that the vehicle was apparently disaligned. But in an awkward manner: the steering wheel would forcibly turn left. Another time right. Sometimes, specially after starting the engine. It is an erratic behavior. Took it to a certified mechanic and was aligned. The mechanic mentioned that it was a bit disaligned. Next day I experienced the same problem. Back to the shop and a road test was performed. The mechanic was bewildered and could not find an explanation for this problem.

Toyota Camry VIN 4t1bf1fk8gu999150. Toyota case #1709122725 police incident:172500264 this is to inform you that my wife ended up a severe car accident dated 9-7-2017. The toyata Camry le 2016 car which was on lease from the toyato f over 20 months completely totaled out. The car was hit on the non driver rear seat by the other car while turning. The impact was of at least 30-40 m/hr of the speed. Above car spinned 180 degree ended up stopping due to road side pavement in the opposite road. The impacted side wheel was broken and rotated out. The impact was severe but the air bags mainly on the driver side front and rear seat did not open at all. The remaining open bag was floppy. Being a medical physician, this is surprising and disturbing to me. As the most fatal car injury occur due to the deceleration injuries due to steering wheel impact that can lead major vessel like aorta / heart rupture. I see it as the manufacturing defect in the car. In the back, both baby car seats were damaged . Fortunately, my wife dropped my children 0. 3 mile before the accident site to the day care who is a 4 month old infant. I am very sure that if any of my children would be in the back seat, the consequences could be life threatening. S. My wife has a chest pain and back pain deceleration injury causing front chest pain, head concussion and other injuries related. I expect safety should be the priority when come to human life. We were planning to keep this car as we spend lease money in to it. However due to the accident and total loss of car. It has effected our financial situation to buy a new car. This is effecting our work as we ended up in urgent situation to spend thousands of dollar to purchase a new car. I have read the nafta information about the car bags and other detailed which further confirms my doubt. Thanks.

On January 25, 2017 at approx. 7:37 pm I started up the vehicle that was not in motion. Before placing the vehicle in motion I noticed the skid and parking brake lights were both on. I then checked the parking brake and it was in the release position (up). I put the vehicle into motion and both lights remained on. At approx. 7:45 pm I was driving cautiously on the highway at approx. 60 mph. At about 7:47 pm all of the sudden I felt the steering wheel stiffen, and at the same time the vehicle began to decelarate from 60 mph to speeds of approx. 40-45 mph. Simultaneously, I pressed on the gas pedal to accelerate but the vehicle failed to increase in speed so that is when I pressed on the gas pedal down to the floor but still the vehicle did not increase in speed. Taking notice of my immediate surroundings, I immediately noticed the skid and parking lights remained lit, so I used my left foot to double check the parking brake position and it remained in the release position (up). Not realizing what was actually happening to the vehicle, I panicked at that moment and I pressed down on the parking brake and this is when the vehicle spun out of control and off the highway into a ditch causing personal minor head injury to myself and my front passenger. The damage to the undercarriage is unknown, but the front and rear fender were proved obvious damaged. The air bags did not deploy. A police report and insurance claim were filed immediately after the accident. The vehicle was drivable and was later driven to my house and remains in the driveway until investigated by my insurance company.

I just bought Toyota Camry xle v6 2017. This car has very sensitive steering and is unsafe to drive, especially on a highway. There is a 1-2 degrees of very loose, fluid, no-resistant movement space in the steering wheel. The lack of any resistance in the steering makes the driver not having control over the car. I have to keep correcting the steering for the car to stay in lane. Actually, a slightest pressure on the steering wheel will make the car to jump in that direction. This makes me feel very unsafe on the highway, it also requires a lot of concentration and it makes me tired, especially my hands. My car has electronic steering systems (eps). I went to Toyota dealer shop. They checked it with a computer and there were no eps faults. All came ok. Their help ended there. This however does not change the fact that the car is not safe to drive.

While driving yesterday - August 18, 2016, power steering went on and off when turning. Seemed to be the power steering - made it hard to turn the wheels. Driving on highway straight ahead was fine. On city streets and parking the issue was very noticeable and frightening since I didn't know if I could control my moving vehicle. . In checking to see where to get repair done, I noticed there is a recall for power steering on the 2004 Camry. Called local Toyota dealer where I bought the car, and was told that this VIN number has no recalls.

During Aug 2016 I went to get some lunch and when I turned off the parking ramp the car was fine. Once I entered on to the fwy and approached the speed of 50 my steering wheel froze and would not turn either way. I could not slow down on the fwy for fear of being hit, so I just stayed in my lane and begin to exit coming to a complete stop in the middle of the street because I could not turn the wheel once I came to a stop I had help getting the car to my house and called aaa to tow the car to a repair shop by my job and found out the power steering unit just stopped. He said he had never seen that. I also had to replace the racknpenion. The light where you shift gears went out, so can't see at night what gear I'm in. Drive or reverse.
The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Camry. While the vehicle was stationary, the steering wheel seized without warning. The vehicle was diagnosed as needing a new tensioner puller. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the issue. The failure mileage was 151,000.
My serpentine belt recently started squealing, so I bought a new one and changed it myself. Upon changing it, I realized that my crankshaft pulley had chunks of rubber that had come off of it, and it seemed to be making the belt rub on the side of the engine block on one of the tension pulley's. After researching online, I found that in 2011, Toyota had recalled 402,000 vehicles because of a faulty crankshaft pulley, that caused power steering to go out, and cause accidents. However, in calling Toyota, they state there are no open recalls on 2005 Toyota Camry's, even though the website that I found included 2005 Toyota Camry's in their recall list. Even now with a new belt on, the belt is jumping back and forth on the tension pulley causing the car to have a "jittery" feel while idling. I feel it is only a matter of time before this belt is ruined as well. I'm not sure how certain models of Toyota Camry's in 2005 would've had a different crankshaft pulley, that happens to be doing the same thing that mine is doing now (rubber seperating from the metal), yet they were recalled and mine was not.
