I purchased this car brand new from the dealer who registered it and gave me paperwork listing my address on all of the forms. I just recently found out that there was an extended warranty program for the driver side visor defect. I had been having issues with it for a few years but since I rarely drive during the daytime it wasn┐T an issue until my shift changed. So now it's broken and today, years later, Toyota tells me that the warranty information was sent to an address other than the one I have lived since I purchased this car. Since I didn┐T register the car and all of my paperwork had my then and still address on it, I feel that they should honor the warranty because they sent it to an address that wasn┐T mine. They will not give me the address but referred me to my state┐ dmv, who also will not give me this phantom address where my info was sent. Colonial Toyota registered the car for me so I have no idea what mistakes were made in the registration process and no way of getting the information. Toyota is doing what all big companies do, pass the mistakes they made to the consumer. I will never purchase anything from atoyota dealer ever again.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the driver and passenger side sun visors failed. The passenger side sun visor assembly detached and the sun visor could not be used. The driver's side sun visor assembly did not allow the sun visor to remain in one position to protect against the sun. Both sun visors were replaced by a manufacturer warranted repair approximately four years ago, but the failure recurred. The vehicle was not repaired. The dealer and manufacturer were not contacted. The failure mileage was not available.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the driver's side sun visor was faulty, fell down, and blocked the contact's vision while driving. The contact mentioned that there was an extended warranty, but the VIN was not included and the warranty was expired. The dealer (jones junction Toyota, 1508 bel air road #2000, bel air, md, 410-879-6400) and the manufacturer confirmed that the warranty was expired. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 78,000. * consumer stated since our orginal telephone call with your office, we had the broke visor replaced. We had no choice since we couldn't see properly with the visor in the way-this was a safety issue. Attached is the receipt. The dealer gave us a small discount from the regular price, but we feel this should have been covered by Toyota at no cost to us. Updated 10/30/18

Takata recall..my 2007 Toyota Camry has developed a shiny sticky coat over several months which covers the entire dash. The shininess obstructs driving visibility and I have found nothing on the market to clean this area. The car originally came from Florida and was garage kept when I purchased. Seems like some sort of manufacturer defect.

Almost a collision. I have a dash that is sticky and the glare from the sun reflecting off the sticky dash is a very bad safety hazard. On 3 different occasions I could have had an accident. It even happens accident night when the street lights reflect off the dash. I have had the cat in motion and stable and have had near accidents. Please let me know if there is anything I can do about this. It is out of warranty. Bit this needs to be recalled and fixed by the maker. I hope and pray it does not take a death or several deaths before action is taken to get this major safety problem fixed. Thank you. (xxxxx).

II have a 2007 Camry that has a defective sun visor as it now hangs and obstructs my visibility. This is a safety hazard and I would expect Toyota to honor it and fix it without charge to the consumer.

The dashboard glare and sticky falling apart condition is obviously an issue. We were never informed that Toyota was replacing these dashboards. I have a 2007 Camry with only 80,000 miles on it and want to have the dashboard replaced. Obviously they know it was dangerously shiny and sticky as they replace them for 10 years. The national Toyota people told me it was too late for them to help me even though they know it's an issue! what if anything can I do?

1. background the vehicle dashboard became "sticky" on or about June 12, 2018. The entire dash is now covered with a glue-like residue. The Toyota warranty enhancement program (ZE6) covering this problem expired on May 31, 2017. Toyota has refused to replace the dash under the warranty program (Toyota case #'s 1806131876, 1806210691). 2. safety-related issues a. on warm, sunny days in direct sunlight, the sticky dash has a very bright shine. The shiny dash projects a glossy, textured image of the dash onto the front windshield. This can occur when the vehicle is either stationary or moving. This condition impedes my field of vision and makes it difficult to Focus and clearly see the road ahead, other vehicles, and pedestrians. B. during the summer season, interior car temperatures can reach between 130 and 170 degrees. What toxins are being released in the car interior from the interaction of extreme heat, uv radiation, and the glue-like residue" what are the short and long term health risks from inhaling potentially toxic air in a confined space while driving" summary because of the safety issues noted above, my vehicle should be recalled as soon as possible. I strongly believe that I am driving an "unsafe" vehicle that is endangering myself, other vehicles on the road, and pedestrians. No driver should have to drive an unsafe vehicle due to a manufacturer's defect which results in diminished road visibility and potentially interior car toxins. Therefore, this is no longer a warranty issue but a serious "safety" issue that needs to be addressed.

I had the driver's side sun visor replaced at my own expense because ithe visor was rotating downward and detaching from the ceiling blocking my vision while driving. A little while later I received a "warranty enhancement notice" from Toyota about this visor problem. I still had the repair receipt so I mailed it to Toyota and they reimbursed me. Now it is broken again. It completely falls down with no support what-so-ever and detaches from the ceiling frequently. I have a string with a clothes pin to hold it partially up but my vision is still blocked some and the clothes pin doesn't hold it very long. This should not happen. I have not abused this visor in anyway. I still have the paperwork for the repair and the warranty enhancement notice letter. There is no number on this letter but at the bottom in tiny letters is ztt Camry N5E086-00000803-104 if this is any help. I live in a different state now but don't know if this makes any difference.

The sun visor at driver's side has become detached. It can no longer be held it its position. Please see picture attached. Toyota had issued a recall on 08/01/2012 (details available at this link: media.fixed-ops.com/toy_campaigns/pol12-03.pdf), however, as per Toyota, free repair/replacement is only applicable "7 years from the date-of-first-use (regardless of mileage)". I have serviced my Toyota at Toyota dealership every 5,000 miles from 2012 till date, however, I was neither informed of this recall nor had the item replaced by Toyota proactively due to recall issued. Hence Toyota must not ask me to pay for this repair now.

Sticky dashboard. Causes visibility hazard due to shiny glare. Toyota did not notify ahead of their warranty extension. Right Toyota dealership did not mention after service visits. Toyota will not replace, says it is, my fault for not knowing ahead of time that my dashboard would one day melt. Car has always been garaged and has only 55K miles. Shame on Toyota.

The dashboard has recently started "melting" and has become sticky and shiny, creating a very distracting glare while driving in the sunlight that obstructs my visibility. Although Toyota had extended the warranty previously for this problem, I was not having this issue at the time the warranty was offered. When I called them up asking them to replace their defective dashboard, I was told my vehicle was "too old" to qualify and that I would have to pay hundreds (perhaps thousands?!) of dollars out of pocket to fix their own safety hazard. Safety hazards caused by Toyota's own negligence should not be the customer's financial responsibility to fix!

The dashboard is melting in hot sunlight. This creates a very reflective surface that makes it almost impossible to see during a bright sunny day.
