Camry LE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles

I have never been able to use my sun visors. Such an idiotic thing to not be covered under warranty after a certain amount of miles. 100,000 or 200,000 miles - I need sun visors. They’re busted where the hinges are and the passenger side fell off. JUNK…. Dealer said I could buy new ones for $80 apiece. No thank you.

Camry XLE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

Purchased a brand new 2009 Camry and have already had so many issues. My sun visor does not stay up and is a hazard while driving. I have also had problems with my ABS module (replaced), dashboard (replaced), undercarriage falling down. Will not be purchasing a Toyota in the future.

Camry LE 2.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,992 miles

The driver side visor won't stay up and flips down. Pretty dangerous if happens while driving. Looking to fix it or replace it. The new replacement in Amazon is around $130.

Camry LE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles

Very poor design almost like it was designed to fail!

A part that can't cost $5.00 to make but they want $55.00 to replace!

This isn't a Rolls Royce!

No wonder they want them to fail!

Absolute trash!!!

The dealership says the recall has expired. Does that mean after a certain length of time your safety doesn't matter? This was a used car and I never received a notice. Toyota should replace my visor free of charge. I have had older cars than this but never had this problem.

Camry LE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

How can Toyota make visors that break? What other car has ever had this problem in the last 30 years? Maybe if the car is >30 years old. Our 2009 Camry LE v6 had the drivers side visor break, and Toyota had issued a recall (must be a problem for most of their cars). Went to the dealer and with two tries, the new visors will not fully snap up into position backwards like the passenger side does, and it will not fully push up to the front, it just flops down a couple of inches blocking your view of a signal light that you are waiting for.

After four Toyota's, after the accelerator pedal problem recall (the fix for ours was a cut up pedal totally uglyfied), after transmission shifting sticking, after undercarriage covers falling down, after AUX connection not working, and now this unfix-able visor problem (maybe Velcro will work to hold it up?), we will not be buying Toyota again. The dealer was getting huffy too, trying to protect the Toyota reputation, denying the visor had a problem and the local Toyota rep refusing to see it. Best to stay away from Nippon products due to possible Fukushima radioactive material contamination anyway. Sad the Toyota cannot make a reliable car anymore.
