This vehicle gave me problems from the beginning. To begin, it began breaking me in the middle of the road going about 45-50 mph. This continued to happen and my Toyota dealer told me that I was a liar. I continued to drive the car, unknowing when it would stop me in the middle of traffic again. It then had electrical problems because the dashboard and radio would go black while I was driving; my air conditioner would stop as well. Also, I was driving on an interstate alone with my cruise control on and it kept breaking me and telling me that there was another car in front of me. This continued for about 30 minutes of constant driving (picture below). The last thing that happened to me in this car was that the lane assist would pull me out of my lane and into another when trying to correct between lines. This happened a few times and Toyota would do nothing about it. My mother was driving my car one day about 75 mph on an interstate and it pulled her off the road to the left. This car gave me nothing but trouble since purchasing it brand new. My car started this trouble within 5 months of me owning the vehicle and Toyota provided no assistance. I was very upset and disappointed that I chose this car above others. I hope Toyota will do their job and fix these problems so another Camry driver may not experience what I, unfortunately, had to.

The contact owns a 2018 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the lane departure feature failed to operate. While driving, another vehicle pulled in front of the contact. The contact struck the front middle portion of the other vehicle. None of the air bags deployed. The driver sustained multiple bruises, a broken sternum, and whiplash and was transported to the hospital for medical attention. A police report was filed. The insurance company was notified of the crash, but had not yet inspected and diagnosed the cause of the failure. The vehicle was towed to a facility. A dealer had not inspected the vehicle yet. Malloy Toyota (400 weems ln, winchester, va 22601, (866) 788-9507) was notified of the abnormal condition before and after the crash, but failed to provide any technical guidance. The manufacturer had issued 4 tsbs for lane departure however, the contact was uncertain if the failure was related to the tsb and they had not issued a recall campaign for a remedy. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 400.

After heavy snowfall and several days of not driving, the moon roof on my Camry broke. It still goes up and down and opens and closes, but when I choose to bring it down it goes too far down. This resulted in snow/rain to enter my vehicle.

3 times the collision prevention stop working while I was driving at the high way. You have to turn the car off and then turn it on to for the collision prevention system to work again. And this is so dangerous. The transmission sometimes glitch and not working properly and shifits like crazy. I feel it sometimes that car sounds not right because it should shift smoothly. Air condition when it on cold the fan can give good air streem which is good but when it on heat the fan is so slow and it doesn't give good air streaming. I was trying to find a way to report this to generate recall but I didn't know how until I found your website.

Vehicle is equipped with blind spot detection system. However, system stays on several times even if the vehicle in blind spot passes away, alert still stays on creating confusion and potential hazard during lane changing. I have recorded video proof of the same.

I was driving my car on a secondary road and warning lights started going off at the same time(ABS, precollision warning, engine light, etc.) my husband drove it to the local Toyota dealership. The Toyota service rep advises me that the engine wires have been chewed by rodents. He also advises me that this is not a Toyota problem so my bumper to bumper warranty would not cover it. He advised my auto insurance would have to pay for it. The problem is a Toyota problem. They have started using plant-based material to cover the wiring which attracts rodents. There is a class action lawsuit, but not for my model of car. Also, this is going to get someone killed, because you can't hardly keep the car on the road after it happens. I don't have any paperwork yet, because my car is still at the dealership.
