Complaint Number: 10202532 Incident Date: September 11, 2007 Date Added to File: September 11, 2007
Description of the Complaint:
My wife and I purchased a 2007 camry le, 4-cylinder, 5-speed automatic with 7,700 miles from down east toyota in brewer, maine. Ever since our test drive we've experienced lack of acceleration (hesitation) from a stop or after slowing down to turn or proceed, shifting problems (constant up and down shifting at certain speeds; car not sure which gear to be in and feels like the car is surging) and unable to use the cruise control due accelerating too quickly due to downshifting and then overshooting the set speed. Some of these symptoms are sporadic; you never know if the car is going to move or not when stepping down hard and quickly on the gas pedal. Sometimes it "red-lines" before accelerating, other times there is barely any response at all. So far have only driven on bare dry/wet roads. We are not looking forward to driving it on snow and ice. We were told by det after the test drive and toyota corporation that this is normal performance for this vehicle, even though there are TSBs (technical service bulletins) concerning these problems. Eg036-07 is the latest ecm update, which was done on 08/14/07 without any noticeable improvements. We would never have purchased this vehicle if we had only researched the car beforehand on the internet. This car is unsafe to drive and toyota and det will be held responsible if an accident occurs due to the aforementioned problems.
Never had any complaints before ours ? Yeah Right Mr Kevin LIES Kelly

Toyota commercials piss me off. Just saw one about the "toyotathon" and buying toyotas is an american tradition. I threw up in my mouth a little when I heard that. Coming from the car company who has the shittiest cars and the weakest trucks. Makes, me SICK!

Good afternoon fellow 2012 Toyota Camry SE V6 Owners! How many show of hands have bought their Brand New 2012 Camry SE V6 and in just 2 weeks of ownership the engine has an Intermittent Miss on several cylinders and the Dealerships socalled ASE Certified Master Technicians "CANNOT" Diagnose the problem or problems causing the missing on several cylinders. FWIW, it is not Fuel Related Problem as that has already been checked out, but to no avail, they still cannot find the problem or problems causing the problem. I honestly believe it has to be either an Electrical or Fuel Management Problem causing the Intermitent misses in this engine! Today has been 3 days since I took it into my Dealership and I do not have any idea as to when I will get the car back, fixed right, instead of just puttin...g a Band Aid on it and sending me down the road! If they cannot fix the car, I want the Dealership and Toyota to Replace the car with an equivelent one and be done with it. We shall see what happens today and tomorrow, before I get my Attorney involved into the mix and get the Defective Camry SE Replaced! Forget about my getting my trade back, as they already sold that car, however I will accept a replacement Camry SE V6 like the one I just bought and now have serious problems with it. Will keep everyone posted as to what I find out in the next couple of days! Regards, Disappointed Camry SE Customer in South Florida!

Josh Sandgren I've done the research. Toyotas are not that great. The quality on them since 2005 and newer is sub par (look at the amount of recalls for stupid thing, and big problems). The economy isn't there. The EPA claims 40+ and I don't know one person who's gotten better than 37mpg real life numbers with their Prius. Guess what - my 4000 pound, HEMI powered Charger can get close to that on the interstate on LONG trips. Minnesota to Texas, I've hit 39mpg with cruise set at 75 with the engine running in 4cyl mode most of the way.
And do some research on the effects of lithium on the environment. Battery powered is not the way of the future - its the way of the corrupt money mongers that want you to THINK you're getting a "green" car...

Today, in Birmingham Michigan, a recent model Camry blasted through the showroom window of European Motors, damaging a rare Lotus. The Camry came to rest against the back wall but the wheels kept spinning at a high rate of speed, filling the place with tire smoke. Driver error my ass!! Toyota sucks and people who buy them are stupid!! It has nothing to do with the Japanese people or the earthquake either, Hamoud. There's a huge misperception in this country that Asian brands are superior to Domestic, and it just isn't true. They are good cars but you do NOT have to buy one to get a good car. Ford out paces Toyota in quality.
