My brake pedal when depressed, when stopped, makes a loud noise. My car cycles a buzzing sound often, even when the brakes are not depressed. My warning lights : check VSC system, ABS, warning triangle, a circle with and exclamation point and brake, all are continuing to light up on my dash. I took it to the dealer.

While driving on the freeway, the speedometer and all of the gauges stalled out while the car was still running. The car gauges came back on after a few minutes, presently the gauges are taking a longer time to come back on, in addition while the gauges are off the air conditioner goes off as well, when all the gauges come back on the tire pressure light comes on. We are afraid to take the care out of town because when the gauges go off the car is hard to steer. This continues to happen every time car is driven.

2007 Toyota Camry le the steering wheel is sticking or binding when turned both left and right. The steering wheel will not return to center by itself. This was confirmed by mike calvert service director grant miles. On service ticket tocs 224493 there remarks were test drove vehicle and could not feel a pull any direction checked alignment specs and specs were at factory settings related to steering issue...,and felt at full turn to the left or right, the wheel would not rotate back when going forward... when going in reverse with the S/wheel turned all the way left or right the S/wheel does retract as it is supposed to...during normal turning left or right the S/wheel does retract as it is supposed to... it's only when the S/wheel is turned fully left or right the steering will not retract.... we concluded that the issues described by are a normal characteristic of this year and model vehicle. Mike calvert admits making my car worst than it was before I bought the car in for service. The steering wheel now sticks in both left and right turns and at low speeds the tires feel like I have an flat. I have had tires replaced because fred haas told me that the steering wheel sticking was because of my tires, they alignment was out of specs. I feel that is a unsafe condition and need to be addressed. Toyota customer service was of no help. I have been to three dealership for this problem. All have the same answer bad tires, alignment, and normal condition for your car steering wheel to stick and your car will do circles when low speed turning without your hand on the wheel. Two Toyota tech. Have been in the car when this is happen. There response was normal to do that. The service director has noted that this is happening both left and right full turns. My car was only sticking to the left before taking it to mike calvert Toyota.

I was driving my 2007 Toyota Camry le about 55 miles an hour on a three lane interstate freeway. I was in the slow lane and my car suddenly and violently turned to the left, causing the car to hit a large rv in the center lane. The car continue spinning across the fast lane (it's amazing no cars were in that lane because traffic was fairly heavy). The back end of my car hit the center cement barrier hard (car totaled) and I came to a stop on the inside shoulder facing the opposite direction of where I was originally traveling. The airbag did not go off and the locking part of the seatbelt didn't seem to work. I could have been easily killed or killed someone else. I will contact Toyota. There is no excuse for this.

5/13/2015: 2007 Toyota Camry. Vsc (vehicle stability control) light came on (5/9/2015). It was very difficult to stop the vehicle. Had to floor the brakes in order to stop the vehicle. The steering was all over the place, not tight with the steering wheel movements. Brought it to the dealership (new country Toyota of clifton park, NY) where we bought it 9 months ago and they said this is a common part that fails. If this is true, there should be a recall...this is a huge safety issue. I am thankful that my son didn't get in an accident. They now want $2500 to repair it. When we purchased this vehicle for our son 9 months ago, they said that we can get 250,000 miles out of it, it was a very safe car for our son to be in....I beg to differ!!! I see lots of complaints listed for this electronic stability contol and hope there will be a recall.

My 2007 Toyota Camry SE has a melted dashboard that severely diminishes visibility when the sun is out. A reflection from the dashboard is displayed on the windshield and is like looking directly into the sun. Sooner or later this is going to be the cause of an accident that may or may not result, but not limited to death. It is a defect on the part of Toyota and should be addressed immediately before someone gets hurt. I have two small children and their lives should not be put in danger for an obvious defect that must be corrected.
