Default New 2007 Toyota Camry

I just bought a new 2007 Camry a few weeks ago, but did not do a good job
researching this car, but I just went to the NHTSA web site and discovered
all these reports about the safety problems from owners that bought this
vehicle.

Anybody were experiencing hesitation when accelerating from a stop or when
changing lane, car going into high RPM when on stop, losing power when
driving? These are safety issues.

Thank you,

Victor

These issues are attributed to the new transmission being used this year. I
would not be surprised if they issue a service bulletin to change the
firmware. Check with your dealer.

I would have guessed the 'drive by wire' throttle. My only real complaint
with my Scion. Causes a hesitiation when depressing the throttle...

A bit of an exageration, pal. Unlike Yugos, the windshields come fitted and
sealed properly from the factory.

I think it was ransley@webtv.net (m Ransley) who stated:

That convinces me! I'm selling my POS Camry and buying a YUGO instead!




What? I can't buy an new Yugo????


Why not . . . ?

Yeah, I guess. My '95 Tercel got recalled. The screw securing the antenna
to the "A" pillar could come loose and cause static when listening to the
AM section.

Oh, the trials and tribulations we Toyota owners put up with!

Oh, there was this, too:

CERTAIN PRO-A MOTORS CORNER LAMPS, TURN SIGNALS, AND HEADLIGHTS SOLD AS
REPLACEMENT LAMPS FOR USE ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES LISTED ABOVE.
SOME COMBINATION LAMPS THAT ARE NOT EQUIPPED WITH AMBER SIDE REFLECTORS
FAIL TO CONFORM TO FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, LAMPS,
REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT.


Oh, dear! No Amber on the side marker!

Sure glad my windshield didn't pop out! Or, they sent me a sticker warning
me my transmission my shift into reverse from Park at any time without
warning.

See, Toyotas ARE unsafe! Just think, I may no hear Rush Limbaugh over the
static on the radio, making me angry and causing severe Road Rage.

But that's only a danger to others. Guess *I* need a recall...

Besides the electronic throttle I wonder if the transmission flare
could be a problem here. Yeah, a big problem right now with that car is
the transmission can go into neutral when you step on the gas, like
when you are trying to avoid being rear ended by a dump truck.

Toyota should have gone back to the old Aisin tranny with 20% more
parts instead of using the new U-series crap.

To be fair, Toyotas are not as bad as the Yugos but they are not as
good as the Toyotas built 10 years ago.

Try these:

"Toyota Motor Corporation announced on Tuesday, June 6, 2006 that is
recalling nearly one million vehicles worldwide. The recall is to
replace faulty parts in the steering column of 10 Toyota models that
could cause drivers to lose control of the steering wheel. "

"04/03/2006 On certain vehicles, due to improper assembly of the air
bag inflator.....the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to
properly inflate the air bag when the SRS system is activated during a
crash. "
