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.

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.

I only had my 1999 Camry for 5 days. I was driving on the expressway doing about 35 mph. I was going around a slight curve when the wheel locked and I couldn't turn. I tried to stop but couldn't and ran directly into the concrete median causing me to spin around and then hit the median again. Both air bags came out and my car was towed to a lot where it was declared "totaled. " no one or any other property was damaged. I had my car for only 5 days and it malfunctioned.
