Interior structure problem re: dashboard. My 2007 Toyota Camry LE sedan has just over 40K. This is a one-owner 4 door sedan. I bought this as "new" at Venice Toyota in FL on 3/29/07. I moved back to RI in 8/2007. About 2018, while cleaning the inside, I noticed that the dashboard seemed sticky. I had a dog and couldn't get the dashboard clean. I've tried several times to clean it (including some gel that's supposed to work) but everything sticks to it. I just found out where I can report it or I would have done this sooner. I had looked up my auto when I was checking for any outstanding recalls. I've had 2 minor recalls fixed. Reading further, others had the same problem, had contacted dealers about a recall which supposedly had gone out but it didn't. Toyota won't acknowledge the problem nor will the dealers. I am faithful about maintenance but the dashboard is disgusting. I also noticed that others have the same complaint and some are from South Florida as mine is. When is Toyota going to address this problem? It's not just 2007 Camrys - it's many models and years. There must be something they can do - it's their problem and they need to address it. Thank you.

Vehicle was detailed at Toyota of San Diego. The dash board became very sticky/gummy when exposed to sun. This causes a problem when driving because the sticky imagine from the dash board shines on the window and distorts your view. Toyota of San Diego sold to Norm Reeves of San Diego. The service department mentioned Toyota knew about the problem but the time has expired to replace the dash. My mom did not receive any notification from Toyota. The car has 20,000 miles and is occasionally driven. My mom is 97 and I have just started to drive her car. Viewing out the front window is hazardous.

I sent a complaint about my dashboard melting, over two years ago and complained to the dealer ship with no help, they told me my warranty expired a week before the recall. They said it would cost me right at $ $1100 to repair, I told them that's not fair for me to pay for there mistake I can't afford that, the way the economy is going. I beg for help before and no one listen, so lam pleasing again. God I hope someone hear me this time.

The front dash assembly is melted over time and is so bad I cannot see out the front windshield. I told the dealership that I believe this was a recall and they said it was but that the specific job for that expired ? I didn-€™t know recalls expired. They are willing to fix the current situation with the current system failure of the over heating window switches but a major problem is the visibility up front. I have to wear sun glasses just to see through that horrible glare from the melted dashboard. Also not sure if their is any suspension issues with my 2007 Toyota Camry. The steering wheel shakes some and I-€™ve purchased new tires wheels and some rotation balance and alignment and no additional work or parts where needed to fix that problem. The alignment did reduce some steering wheel shaking but it-€™s getting worse again. Any help would be appreciated and if we could get the Dealership to fix the front dashboard that would be phenomenal. Thank you.

There was a previous recall on this vehicle for the dash melting and becoming sticky. I learned of this recall after purchasing it and would appreciate it if the recall was still honored. At least if half the expences covered for the manufacturer mistake.

Secondary warranty... discussed with a service advisor prior to the "2015 warranty enhancement". I was told no recall, no liability. Because this was not a recall Toyota motor Corp is refusing to replace the sticky dash resulting from heat of summer and winter heating which causes eye, throat, lung irritation, clouding glare of windshield and eyeglasses. The clock mounted on the dash has a cloud over the plastic cover making it almost impossible to read as well as plastic cover over dome light. Aug 9 2019, I communicated via email with fred anderson Toyota jeff demeyer | service director 803.796.6650 jdemeyer@anderson-auto.net regarding sticky melting dashboard of my approx. 57,000 mi 2007 Camry. His reply " Toyota motors North America will not allow a dealer to perform any warranty extensions after they have expired. My advise would be to call Toyota motors at (800)331-4331 and start a case seeking replacement of the dash. If approved, they will notify us with an authorization # and we can proceed with the replacement" Aug 10 2019, spoke with customer service rep (susan) @ Toyota motors at (800)331-4331 regarding dash replacement approval. Service request denied!! of course they have no record of my ever discussing this matter with an advisor prior to the warranty notification. To paraphrase the customer service rep "to provide an exception for one customer would mean the exception to be provided to all customers", we have parameters in place which does not allow repair beyond the warranty enhancement expiration date". these vehicles are being placed back into circulation without dash replacement to consumers whom trusted the Toyota name and reputation. I rarely drive my vehicle which now reads approx 58,000 and can not, will not sell to anyone in good conscious. The extended warranties received in the mail are not honored at fred anderson Toyota!!!!

The auto was originally kept year round in Minnesota. We have a place in alamo tx 2 years ago we drove the Camry down to Texas and flew back to Minnesota. We left the car in a garage. The fall of 2020 is when we discovered we had a sticky dash. We called Toyota in pharr tx they said there was a recall for this but the time had expired for us to get it fixed under the recall about 2 years age. Because the Camry was in mn for the majority of its life, the problem wasn't discovered until the fall of 2020, 2 years after the rebate expired. The technition at pharr Toyota says that heat and humidity caused the problem. Thus the heat and humidity in Texas for 2 years brought this problem to light 2 years after the rebate expired. The dash is sticky and its a shiny reflective surface that relects light, hampering visability which is dangerous. We request Toyota fix our dash.

Melting dashboard.Toyota was ordered by court to replace and they did but now melting again which means court order not replied with as problem still exists. Toyota will not do anything for melting again issue. This is not only horrible but a safety issue as visability is hampered. Need you to advise Toyota they must comply with court order since melting again means not complied with previously
