Default 2004 Camry Driver Seat


I'm having a safety problem with my 2004 Camry. My driver seat is
sliding. I took it to the Toyota dealership to complain and they
fixed, they said "it was a loose bolt". 2 months later, the same thing
happened and they said that the tracking (left side tracking) for my
seat is defective and the only thing that's keeping my seat from
totally sliding is the right side fo the seat. They told me that I
need to replace it and it'll cost me about $1500. If it's defective,
why am I liable for it? I'm 5'1, 110 pounds, there's no way I can
brake my car seat tracking. I told them not to replace it and I'm
going to get a second opinion.

Before I file a complaint and open a case with Toyota, is there anyone
else experiencing the same problem I'm having with the driver seat?

It ought to be covered unless you have more than 36000 miles, and $1500
must be the cost of the whole seat (I assume it's leather at that
price). You ought to be able to get a used seat from a wrecker at a
small fraction of that cost and scavenge the rail/brake assembly.
Removing the seat is a 3-bolt affair; it takes 5 minutes. I don't know
how hard it is to replace the rail hardware.

Default Re: 2004 Camry Driver Seat , Toyota Quality is at a new low

It should be a warranty issue go by when you first reported it.

In 2005 TOYoTa recalled more cars than they sold in the US, thats BULL
SHIT CRAP quality looking at you straight in the face. Now go buy a
Ford, quality is back. I own toyotas, have since 87, have jumped ship.
New camrys Jap Crap.

The earlier generation of Camrys had a similar problem and I think
there was either a TSB or a recall because depending how far it
suddenly tilts/slides it can cause the driver to loose control.

Forget talking to the dealer at this point, they are stonewalling you.
Talk to Toyota directly at the customer service number in the warranty
manual. You should try to get this fixed before the warranty expires
because after that they won't even talk to you without handing over
money first.

Also, you should share your safety concern with the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration at: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/
