problem #7

  • 37,429 miles
When turning at slow speeds the steering wheel goes from tight to loose as you make a turn. When driving down the road the steering wheel feels really tight and hard to turn. This issue started at 37,429 miles, which is conveniently 1,429 out of the warranty period.

For a year and a half, my car has always refused to accelerate on time, often overcompensating and lunging forward, or undergoing a rolling sensation and accelerating. I had the same problem with the steering/tires twice in the past week and today as well. When making a turn and accelerating the car tires skid very loudly and the steering wheel moves on its own to the left and right. I almost went out of my lane because of this. Tires are fine and do not show excessive wear or damage.

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.

While driving the vehicle during clear conditions during a turn on a city street, the steering became heavier. The steering wheel now sticks at multiple points and does not turn back to center without heavy force, it also rattles loudly at higher speeds. The 2018 Camry had approximately 50,000 miles when this issue started to happen.

problem #3

I had just exited a freeway, and was entering the surface streets via a stoplight. After turning onto the surface street, the signal ahead turned red. I attempted to apply the brakes in traffic while traveling at or less than 20 M.P.H., but the brakes did not respond as normal. I pushed the brake pedal down and the vehicle did not stop as normal. Instead, the pedal depressed further than normal, and I felt a heavy vibration feedback through the pedal. I was approximately 2-3 car lengths from the car in front of me, and I pumped the brakes and depressed the pedal as far as I could physically manage. At that point, the vehicle began to slow, but so gradually that I was certain to collide with the car in front of me. I then steered to the right (I was in the rightmost lane) toward the curb of the sidewalk. The front passenger wheel went up on the curb and the vehicle stopped. I put on the hazard signal, then when traffic cleared behind me, pulled into a gas station approximately 40 feet in front of me. When I steered back onto the roadway after initially stopping, the steering felt very loose, and I felt as though I was driving on ice or without control over the steering. Once in the gas station parking lot, I put the car in park, and turned off the engine. I examined the pedals for blockage and looked for fluid leaks, but found nothing. I started the vehicle and tested the gas and brakes in the empty parking area, and everything responded as normal. However, the front passenger tire has a tear in the sidewall and the rim is lightly damaged.

Lane sensors not working. These sensors are supposed to keep you in your lane for safety. I didn't realize I was going over center line because sensor not working. Not having sensors that work could cause a major accident.
