Failure Date: 12/07/2017

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.

At 59000 miles the transmission torque converter was replaced . Shortly after that I noticed the car seems to be all over the road . This has gotten much worst. Specially on windy days . Can not take a exit or change lanes with out feeling like the rear end is going to break free . If on the highway and road comes into a curve feels like your going to loose control . I've had several repair shops look at this car . They drove it and experienced it . Wast told how do you drive that car. Contacted Toyota several times do have a file number. Requesting to meet a rep at anylocal dealer to test drive this car . Was told they don't do that. Was told to take it back to dealer who did transmission if related repair under warranty . If not I'm liable for diagnosis charges. I refused . Also note that I'm on set number 4 of tires 2 sets of michelin and set of snows. Ive be at replaced tires on any car like this car . I have found several other similar complaints. Please reference NHTSA I'd #10966229 some e needs to look into this before someone gets hurt or worst.

Car pulls to left after new tires , 3 different alignment checks. Went on-line and discovered numerous complaints and few solutions. This is dangerous and little help from dealers. You have to maintain constant pressure on wheel when driving at any speed to stay in lane.

My airbag light came on. I contacted Toyota regarding this issue and I was told they have already fixed the issue and it is out of warranty so it is my problem now. I don�t see how they can skirt their responsibility. They were the last ones dealing with the airbags and maybe what they did was not a complete fix. Everything on my steering wheel will not work; horn, cruise control, phone, radio volume. I do believe my horn is a safety issue. Thank you for your help in these matters.
