Toyota Camry owners have reported 336 problems related to steering (under the steering category).
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.

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.

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 noticed my dashboard was sticky. When I tried to clean it chunks of dashboard came off. Does Toyota cover repairs or replacement?.

I was driving in the right lane in a school zone, on a straight stretch. No other cars were near me. The steering wheel suddenly pulled to the right, causing the car to hit the curb. My first thought was, I had a flat tire, but I did not. Since it was not far, I decided to take my car to pohanka Toyota where I purchased it and have it serviced. The dealer replaced the right rear wheel hub, bearing and shock absorber. . . . Updated 10/22/14.
