Entering the highway from and entrance ramp during rainy weather and as I turn the wheel the vehicle begins to loose control and the traction light comes on as I slide sideways off the ramp. This vehicle is very dangerous due to the steering problems it has that can't be fixed, also on dry ground this car is very difficult to keep in its lane especially at highway speeds. A recall was issued but my car isn't included even though I have the issue reported.

My 2007 Toyota Camry se has a melted dashboard that severely diminishes visibility when the sun is out. A reflection from the dashboard is displayed on the windshield and is like looking directly into the sun. Sooner or later this is going to be the cause of an accident that may or may not result, but not limited to death. It is a defect on the part of Toyota and should be addressed immediately before someone gets hurt. I have two small children and their lives should not be put in danger for an obvious defect that must be corrected.

The car pulls to the left or right and there is alot of play in the steering wheel, and occasionally the wheel will jerk slightly. There is a popping/ knocking in the wheels and steering wheel. I have taken it to get an alignment twice and was told that it is not the aligment. Put new brakes and rotors on the front. Did some research and found that this was a recall on this model of vehicle, ran a VIN number check and my car did not show up with having a recall. Called Toyota and asked about a recall for the steering. Toyota stated that because my VIN number did not show up as a recall for this problem that there was nothing they could help me with. Also see that there was a recall or complaint about the transmission. I really think that if there was a history of recalls for this make and model that Toyota should still check this out for free and fix the problem. Just because the VIN number is not showing up as being recalled doesn't mean that this can not happen. I have only had the car 2 weeks and have not been happy with the way it drives.

I was making a turn out of a fast food restaurant, but when I made the turn the plastic covering over my steering wheel flew off and fell to the ground. I was able to steer and hit the brakes just in time to avoid hitting a parked car. It was difficult to brake since the cover hit the ground and prevented me from moving easily to hit the brake pedal.

I cant keep this car in its lane, it veers to the left at all speeds and even worse at highway speeds. This is very dangerous and needs to be corrected by Toyota because the car will not take an alignment and pulls the driver into oncoming traffic constantly.

Recently purchased, 2014 se v6 Camry with 60miles on it, only 5 weeks old now, I didn't notice the problem until I was on the freeway going about 65+ the first day I bought it, car will not come back to center when turning left or right, I can let go of the steering wheel and it will continue to turn. Feels like im driving on a very rainy/windy day, very flimsy. I would have to constantly correct the car to go straight, brought it in to Toyota dealer four times now, had 2 alignments done by Toyota, still no help, all they keep telling me is, "thats how the car is designed", after that they tried to tell me it was defective tires, which was not true, I swapped out the tires, still didn't help. So you are telling me a car that does not return to center is normal?? I've seen many complaints about this problem online, shouldn't there be a recall?? very very bad performance, I will not let my mother drive this car anymore because of the safety issues, very dangerous car to drive on the freeway.

2012 Toyota Camry. Consumer writes in regards to electric power steering problems. The consumer stated with the electric power steering, the vehicle would drift to the left and right in and out of lane he was trying to stay in. The vehicle seemed to have a mind of its own, and it would take its own course down the road. The consumer stated it was very dangerous at 60 mph, and the curves were even worse, as the consumer needed to correct the steering a lot more. When he turned onto a curve, the electric power steering would over react and continued turning the vehicle after he stopped turning the wheel, at that point he had to turn the wheel the other way to correct the over steering.
