The Toyota Camry has been in production since 1982. It’s become known as one of the most reliable vehicles in America’s history, but recent reports suggest the newer models don’t live up to the same standards. Still, Toyota must not have received the memo because this year’s lineup features the tagline, “daring side of dependability.” Let’s take a closer look at the issues with the powertrain, electrical system and engine on this popular sedan.

Problems with the Transmission

The powertrain includes all of the components that transmit the power to the wheels. This consists of the transmission and engine. The powertrain is considered one of the most critical systems on the vehicle. When it malfunctions, it’s challenging to get the car to move at all.

One person experienced these problems first hand and wrote about it on an Edmunds review. “I think the 2018/19 Camry’s are the best looking car out there. I have all the safety features and they work very well. However, the automatic transmission is horrible. Shifting when accelerating like from a red light or stop sign is bad. Usually, there is a delay and the car jerks. Also during acceleration there is a lot of engine noise. For these reasons I cannot recommend it and although it’s beautiful it’s not fun to drive and I’m already considering getting rid of it to get a different car. Wish I had of paid more attention during my test drive.”

The company has remained strangely quiet regarding these problems. There are no recalls, investigations or service bulletins that we are aware of. Instead, they’ve chosen to issue recalls on problems such as an incorrect label which might cause people to overload their vehicle. While that’s certainly a priority, how much more should a malfunctioning transmission be? After all, who wants to be the last one sitting at a light that’s turned green? It only takes a matter of seconds before someone starts blowing their horn.

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2019 Toyota Camry Transmission Problems

REACCELARATION SHOCK, TRANSMISSION LAG, ESPECIALLY UPON RE-ACCELERATION FROM COASTING OR WHEN TRYING TO OVERTAKE SOMEONE ON THE HIGHWAY, DANGEROUS. LUGGING AND SHIFT SHOCK ON DOWNSHIFTING AND UPSHIFTING, FEELS LIKE YOU GET REAR ENDED SOMETIMES.

WHEN ON A COMPLETE STOP AND STEP ON THE GAS PEDAL THE CAR FEELS LIKE IT’S STUCK IN NEUTRAL AND THEN IT JERKS INTO GEAR.

THE TRANSMISSION ON THIS CAR DOES NOT SHIFT THE WAY IT SHOULD. WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STOP THE TRANSMISSION SEEMS TO HAVE TROUBLE DECIDING WHAT GEAR IT SHOULD BE IN AND THE SHIFT POINTS ARE TOO HIGH ESPECIALLY WHEN SHIFTING INTO 3RD OR 4TH GEAR. THERE IS SOME SERIOUS HESITATION THAT SHOULD NOT BE PRESENT. ALSO, WHEN DOWNSHIFTING IT FEELS LIKE SOMEONE TAPPED THE BRAKE PEDAL BECAUSE IT SLOWS DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY. IF A CAR BRAKES IN FRONT OF ME AND I HAVE TO SLOW DOWN AND THEN GET BACK ON THE GAS TO SPEED BACK UP IT TAKES TOO LONG FOR THE CAR TO GET UP TO SPEED TO KEEP UP WITH TRAFFIC. THIS HAS ALL HAPPENED ON SIDE STREETS AS I HAVE NOT TAKEN THE CAR ON THE HIGHWAY YET.

Problems with the Engine

Just as vital is the engine. It’s considered the heart of a vehicle, pumping out precious power to get drivers where they want to go. Unless it is reliable, the car is virtually worthless.

Just read this one review from the NHTSA website, “I rented a 2019 Toyota Camry for 9 days. Many times while accelerating, the engine loses power. It is especially dangerous when attempting turns in front of ongoing traffic. The car would start to go then just seem to die as I was making the turn. Then, engine lights would come on and it would just start coasting. The car never stalled, it just would not go. I learned very quickly to not think I could make a turn into the oncoming traffic safely unless I had enough room to coast across the intersection. Also it was very dangerous when trying to merge into traffic. I looked this up on the Internet and it seems to be a very common problem with Camrys but I do not understand why there is not a recall or, at least, an investigation started by NHTSA.”

Does it surprise anyone to know that the company is also quiet on this front? There’s nothing to report about the transmission or the engine. It’s as if everything is fine; nothing to see here. For those people that have children, it’s like playing hide and seek with a baby. They cover their eyes and think no one can see them, even though everyone knows they are still there. Drivers see the problems with the Camry; they can’t be hidden.

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2019 Toyota Camry Engine Problems

TL* THE CONTACT OWNS A 2019 TOYOTA CAMRY. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE ENGINE MADE A LOUD CLICKING NOISE. WHILE DRIVING AT AN UNKNOWN SPEED, THE VEHICLE VIBRATED AND SHOOK. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO SWOPE TOYOTA WHERE IT WAS DIAGNOSED THAT THE VEHICLE MAY NOT HAVE THE CORRECT MOTOR. THE VEHICLE WAS ALSO TAKEN TO OXMOOR TOYOTA THE DEALER TEST DROVE THE VEHICLE AND WAS UNABLE TO DUPLICATE THE ENGINE FAILURE. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS CONTACTED THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 1,500

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A 2019 TOYOTA CAMRY IN FEBRUARY. I’VE NOTICED THAT WHILE DRIVING THE VEHICLE, THE ENGINE SEEMS TO HESITATE AND JERK WHEN ACCELERATING. THIS IS A CAUSE FOR CONCERN BECAUSE WHEN SLOWING DOWN AND GIVING THE VEHICLE GAS, IT CAUSES THE RPMS TO SHOOT UP AND THE CAR JERKS FORWARD. THIS CAN CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO STRIKE A VEHICLE OR ANYTHING IN FRONT OF IT. IT IS NOT ANY DIFFERENT IF THE VEHICLE IS STATIONARY OR IN MOTION. IN EITHER SITUATION THE VEHICLE IS HESITATING AND JERKING WHILE ACCELERATING. IT IS ALSO DANGEROUS TO TURN INTO ONCOMING TRAFFIC. IF THE CAR STRUGGLES TO ACCELERATE IT CAN CAUSE A COLLISION.

Problems with the Electrical System

A car’s electrical system goes beyond just the battery and alternator. It also runs just about every component on the vehicle, making it extremely complicated and necessary at the same time. When a driver experiences trouble with this vital network of connectors, trouble can present itself in many ways.

Here’s one review from the Edmunds website depicting one way the electrical system fails in a Camry. “Purchased new May, 2019, have only 900 miles to date,  and twice received in-car alert that the… power steering electronics had malfunctioned and MUST hold on to steering wheel. Took car to dealer and after a review, was advised that the malfunction code was cleared and I was good to go. The next day when my wife was driving in expressway traffic the malfunction kicked in and she lost power steering and had to maneuver to the side to avoid an accident. Got the car to the dealer and was informed that electronic power steering module needs to be replaced. WOW!!!  Schedule to pickup today but my wife is fearful about driving it. Dilemma!!!”

Of all ten service bulletins provided by the company regarding electrical systems, none of them deal with anything remotely important. Instead, the automaker discusses trouble connecting to Bluetooth and using the audio system. While it’s possible these malfunctions might seem catastrophic to some drivers, it’s not nearly as essential as whether the power steering works or not.

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2019 Toyota Camry Electrical Problems

BRAND NEW CAMRY 2019 (3,105 MILES, OWNED FOR 2 MONTHS) LOST ALL POWER WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY – DRIVER CONSOLE (SPEEDOMETER, SCREEN, ETC) WAS COMPLETELY TURNED OFF – HAD TO PULL OVER IMMEDIATELY. UPON TURNING THE VEHICLE OFF AND RESTARTING, THE FOLLOWING WAS DISPLAYED; MASTER WARNING LIGHT (YELLOW TRIANGLE WITH EXCLAMATION MARK), POWER STEERING WARNING LIGHT, DRIVER SCREEN IN CONSOLE DISPLAYED MESSAGE READING “STEERING POWER LOW. VISIT YOUR DEALER”. VEHICLE WAS TURNED BACK OFF. AFTER A FEW MINUTES, THE VEHICLE WAS RESTARTED – NONE OF THE PREVIOUS WARNINGS WERE DISPLAYED. NO SYMPTOMS OR ISSUES HAVE OCCURRED SINCE. TOOK VEHICLE TO THE DEALER THE NEXT DAY AND NOTHING WAS FOUND. SUSPICIOUS COMPONENTS / POTENTIAL ISSUES WERE CHECKED AND NOTHING WAS FOUND. WAS TOLD TO RETURN IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN.

DRIVER WINDOW DOES NOT GO DOWN ALL THE WAY HAVE TO TRY SEVERAL TIMES AND WHEN I PUT IT UP IT SEEMS TO WANT TO JUMP OFF TRACK. PUSHES WINDOW SLIGHT INWARD. RIGHT REAR PASSENGER WINDOW MAKES STUTTERING MOTION WHEN GOING UP. NOT GOOD

Description
While traveling at interstate speeds (about 68 mph) a vehicle in front of me (about 6 car lengths ahead) hit a pickup truck. I hit the brakes and then my car's auto braking system was activated (displaying on the dashboard) but it did not feel like my car was slowing down. I then proceeded to push the break all the way to the floorboard and my car did not slow down causing me to hit the vehicle in front of me. It felt like the auto-breaking system was preventing me from applying full braking power. When I pushed the break petal to the floor it felt like I was pushing on air. There was no resistance on the petal as there normally would be. There were no skid marks on the road and after the impact, my vehicle would not move. I had to put the car in park and then back into drive to move off the road.

This is definitely could be a safety issue and cause corrosion and mildew in the interior. I looked into and troubleshooted this issue and actually found out this was a common issue on camry's. I ended up taking the vehicle back to the dealer and told them this was the reason the last person traded this vehicle in. The dealer wanted to get me another car instead and not fix the issue.

Had fuel pumped replaced in aug 2020 on my 2019 toyota camry xse out of precaution due to a recall. Fast forward to today aug. 2022, I have had issues the last week & a half. Iv taken my car into toyota dealership 3 times and they still can't figure out the problem. When starting my car, it stalls, sputters, vibrates, and or dies after a few seconds, as well as every warning light going off, and very low mpg when it is drivable. At one point I was getting 7mpg and car wouldn't go above 15mph. I told toyota I believed it was due to a bad fuel pump, they told me it was replaced 2 yrs ago, therefore that can't be the issue. I mention that maybe they replaced my fuel pump w/an original fuel pump rather than the newer fuel pump that was suppose to correct the problem. The mechanics response was “it's possible”. Still w/o a car to drive while toyota tries to figure out the problem. A couple days prior they said it was fixed, picked up my car and as soon as I pulled out onto the main road, my car started to vibrate and sputter again. Hoping this time they will at least check to see if it is indeed the fuel pump.

My issue is with acceleration of the car from the start and sometimes driving at lower speeds. There's a significant lag when you step on the acceleration and then it just gets activated and car starts accelerating rapidly. It seems that the transmission can't keep up with the accelerator. Also there's a vibration coming from transmission between speeds of 40-50 mph, in general I want to say that it runs a bit rough.

Description
The vehicle is a 2019 toyota camry xse v6. It currently has 27,000 miles on it. On may 2, 2022 while crossing a busy 4 way intersection (35 mph) the car began to stall. The engine started to shake, impacting the ability to steer the car, the vehicle would not accelerate and nearly all of the dashboard lights turned on. It was taken to the dealership on may 3rd where a mechanic said a rock may have hit a sensor underneath the vehicle but that everything was fine. On may 4th while driving on the highway the same thing happened again. This time going around 65 mph. It was brought back to the dealership where they said it was a faulty ignition coil but that there were no oem parts available and it was backordered with no eta o repair. They advised to leave the vehicle as it was unsafe to drive. I asked why they didn't make me aware of it when it was brought in the day before and that they needed to fix it. I called toyota corporate and about an hour later the dealership let me know they would repair it with an aftermarket part. They commented that ignition coils normally do not go out in vehicles under 100k but it has been seen frequently on the 2019 camry xse v6 by the technicians. On may 6th the dealership claimed the vehicle was repaired. Driving back from the dealership on a local road (40mph) the same thing happened again. Dashboard lights turning on. Engine shaking the steering wheel. Car unable to accelerate. It was then taken back to the dealership again the same day. The dealership claimed to repair 2 ignition coils and that it should be fine. On may 11th the vehicle stalled again while driving on local roads (about 30 mph). It was again taken to the dealer where they claimed all 6 coils needed to be replaced at cost. I refused and claimed they needed to repair and left. On june 10th while driving on the highway (70mph) the same thing happened again. It was taken to another dealership. 3 coils replaced on 6/25. On 6/29 the same thing happened again

The factory glass center display console, in my 2019 toyota camry xse, which contains a touchscreen radio and built-in hvac controls, suddenly cracked in multiple locations. Small shards of glass are protruding from some of the cracked areas. Multiple owners have experienced this same phenomenon as highlighted in the attached link to a toyota owner forum. A call to toyota care and trips to (2) toyota dealers has resulted in the same experience; they stated to be unaware of a product defect that would cause this type of failure, and suggested that the cracked glass was the result of impact damage. That is not the case... The screen suddenly failed by itself. Obviously, the broken glass creates a safety concern for use of the touchscreen, and it's plausible that pieces of the screen could dislodge and become projectiles in the event of an accident. Please consider this failure for a product safety recall, covered by toyota. Https://www. Toyotanation. Com/threads/touch-screen-cracked. 1397290/

I brought my car to a local toyota shop to run a diagnosis and it has been reported that I have a failed "recalibration" and need to replace the fuel gauge.

I recently purchased a 2019 camry le with 18k miles, I've noticed many instances of poor acceleration, struggling to find gears, very jerky shifting when coasting and re accelerating. I was attempting to pass a vehicle on a 2-way highway on which I had more than enough time and distance to pass, but as I merged to pass the transmission felt like it didn't know what gear to be in and I could not accelerate and I had to slam on my brakes and quickly jump back into my original lane to avoid being hit by a super duty pickup. Had a service advisor tell me it's a common issue with these transmission and they pointed to a couple other models with the same issues only to then be told by someone else that it's a “characteristic” of the transmission, this is a major safety concern. Under no circumstances should a problem that almost got me killed be called a “characteristic”, this is a serious issue that I wish I was told about when purchasing my car. Extremely disappointed, I'm too scared to drive this car because of a close call I had within 150 miles of my purchase. Something needs to be done, as I've noticed many other similar complaints that almost got other people hurt or killed.

I marked engine on the above as I did not see anything about gas pedal acceleration. At a slow speed turning a sharp right to enter a drive through restaurant, I had my right foot on the brake. The car suddenly accelerated on its own, causing me to jump a curb & lose control. I landed between the restaurant building & drive through, taking out the signs & drive through. It was sudden & a nightmare. Busted both front tires & we had to get a flatbed truck to remove. Some employees there remarked that I missed a pole by a few inches. They helped me out of the car, taking me inside the restaurant. I was crying & very emotional, but explained what happened. I phoned my husband immediately & he came. I didn't hit another car or hurt anybody. I was stoved up & shook up, but otherwise ok. I did get a back x-ray later because of pain, but thankfully no compressed fracture. The police was called & took my registration & helped get a tow truck. I explained what happened. My husband asked that it be taken to the a toyota dealership, but it was not as they do not have a repair shop there. The car is in a local shop for repair that the adjuster recommended. Have not received the first part for it as yet. Insurance adjuster says 00 in damage by phone, but we do not have a copy of this appraisal as yet. We will need to take it to toyota for testing as soon as repairs are done & driveable, but regardless, this is really what happened & I will be afraid to drive this car again. This is vey dangerous & I could have been killed or killed somebody. We bought our car new in early 2019 & I really liked it.

In juneof 2019 I got side swiped on the driver's side beginning at the driver's door while driving; the airbags did not deploy. The matter was taken care of by mutual agreement between attorney and other drivers insurance company (aaa). On 03/02/22 I was attempting to renew registration when I was informed that I had to take vehicle to dealer due to a recall on make and model before new registration could be issued. In the evening of 03/02/22 I stopped at the dealer and explained to one of the service reps that I was there because of a recall and he stated that there was a problem with airbags deploying while driving; but it was too late in the evening because they were getting ready to close and the issue would take 2-3 hours to inspect. The following morning prior to the service department opening I dropped the car off for service. However, the service invoice makes no mention of the airbag system inspection. Instead, the invoice is for a low pressure fuel pump issue. As for my safety being affected, I now understand why the attorney handling the insurance claim as well as aaa's insurance adjuster on the matter both stated “that's odd” when they asked me (at separate times) if the airbags had deployed and I answered “no”. Apparently, according to the service techs comment on the recall having to do with airbags, my safety was in danger at the time of the accident in 2019. But instead of showing that the issue was taken care of on the invoice, in less than 24 hours the problem went from airbags to a low pressure fuel pump. How was my safety put at risk? Being that the impact occurred at the driver's door while I was driving and airbags failed to deploy, had I not veered to my right up the curb I could've suffered serious injury to the left side of my body, at least. Has the problem been reproduced? Unknown. Has the vehicle component been inspected? From techs statement on 03/02/22 and invoice on 03/03/22, unknown. No warnings of any kind.

Per dealer this screen connects which almost all the electronics. Called toyota about the same, they are saying dealer is the best to advise but screen shot while driving is not advisable.

I purchased my camera a few months back. My first complaint would be about the electrical system I assume. The automatic headlight feature does not work, it has caused my battery to die twice, when the driver door is open the interior lights don't come on, and it will rarely start when using the key fob from inside to warm the vehicle. After purchasing I found out it had actually been wrecked & the carfax were not factual, assuming that could be a cause and not the actual vehicle being faulty. The main concern is that it sometimes doesn't shift or struggles and will unexpectedly jerk into gear, then while cruising it seems to have some sort of lagging feel to it, also like a jerking feeling. I believe it may be a transmission issue but it feels very unsafe if you're trying to maneuver in traffic when the vehicle isnt shifting properly almost causing another car to hit you

On 10/29/2021 my daughter was a passenger in her car and was involved in a rear end collision @ approximately 65-70 mph upon collision with a toyota rav4. The air bags did not deploy, the seat belt allowed her forward with her breast catching most of the impact, and the front camera system that should have detected the stopped rav 4 did not alert. We had no error codes nor lights on this car prior and were not aware of any potential recalls. This is a complete failure of a car and safety systems that should have protected her. The entire reason this car was bought was to protect her and it completely and utterly failed. She is now in the er with a broken sternum and currently being evaluated to see if any other vessel damage. We bought this car with the utmost in trust for the safety platform of toyota as she is a double organ transplant recipient and at this time I am unsure if her transplanted kidney has been injured. The recall needs to immediately be expanded and we should have known prior that this car had a potential issue and complete failure of all the front end collision safety systems! How is it that the air bags completely failed to deploy? Even the virginia state trooper on scene commented that he could not see why they had not deployed. I will follow up with more information and pictures as I obtain them after I make sure my daughter, her kidney graft and her boyfriend are ok. I am attaching pictures of the car and of the car that was hit. At this time I only have the exterior pictures but will get the state police report and also will try to get interior pictures of the car.

I kept turning car on and off but still alerts light up and not allow me to drive due to brakes on. Had to disconnect battery then connect and alerts were gone. 2nd time I was driving and all sensor lights came up again. Locked up my brakes and luckily no cars near by that could have hit me. Took video of the issues when happened. Also on my screen the messages appear of what was malfunctioning. I am scheduling appointment for issue to be checked. But have had other people state same issue happened to them and decided to report issue.

There is always a huge delay when accelerating with this car which has to do something with the transmission. If you press your foot on the gas, it will jerk and delay then take off. If you have to quickly accelerate to avoid a crash, you are not going to be able to since the car keeps doing this. I had a car speed towards me and I needed to get out of the way, but this delayed my acceleration and jerked. Luckily the other car braked and my car moved away enough after the delay to avoid any crash. This needs to be fixed on the 2019 models.

Note - three similar incidents within 20 minutes. Incident 1 - when pulling out of a parking lot and into traffic my 2019 camry lost power and would not accelerate. It took me several seconds trying to figure out what was happening. I first thought engine stalled but that was not the case. I noticed a message pop up (and quickly disappear) on the dash display saying to "release the accelerator pedal" (may not be exact wording of the message as it happened very quickly). I took my foot off the accelerator pedal for a few seconds and then was able to regain acceleration control. When first starting to pull out of the parking lot the vehicle accelerated normally. I originally had more than ample time to pull out into the traffic but after the incident cars were stopping behind me as I was coasting. I had all other control (steering and braking). Incident 2 - (five minutes after incident 1) when doing a slow easy u-turn, my camry lost power and would not accelerate. Again my first thought was that the engine stalled but that was not the case. A message popped up (and quickly disappeared) on the dash display but I had no time to read it as I was trying to get out of traffic. I believe it was similar to "release the accelerator pedal". I took my foot off the accelerator pedal for a couple of seconds and then was able to regain acceleration control. Incident 3 - (about 5 minutes after incident 2). When pulling into the center turn lane from the normal travel lane, my camry lost power and would not accelerate. I first thought the engine stalled but again that was not the case. I noticed a much longer message pop up (and quickly disappear) on the dash display but I had no time to read it. I took my foot off the accelerator pedal for a couple of seconds and then was able to regain acceleration control.

We had our fuel pump replaced in march 2021 by recall on our 2019 camry. Four months later, at 70 mph on the interstate, the engine cut out several times with the engine jerking on and off. Also, we had multiple malfunctions and warning lights on dash which included but were not limited to lda malfunction, pre-collision system malfunction, secondary brake system malfunction, check engine light on and reduced cruise control malfunction. We were lucky and managed to get off the road without getting hit from behind. We got off the interstate and managed to get home in "limp mode" with the engine cutting out another 4-5 times. On july 16, 2021, the dealer installed a second fuel pump after they reproduced the problem and verified the pump installed in march, 2021 was the problem. The mechanic said the defective fuel pump would be returned to toyota for them to cut open and examine. There were no messages or symptoms prior to this failure with multiple warning lamps and malfunction messages appearing as the fuel pump failed. Spouse now will not drive the car and I do not trust it.

I contacted local dealership but I was told that the parts are currently not in stock and needs to be ordered. After I followed up several times, the parts are still not available. My vehicle registration will be expired at the end of july 2021. Without the recall issue being addressed, I would not be able to pass the inspection and then not able to get sticker renewed. The vehicle has not been recently inspected and there were no warnings or noticeable symptom. In short, the dealer is unable to address the issue in a timely manner which makes my renewal of registration impossible.

Our 2019 camry was taken in for service under the fuel pump recall and after picking the vehicle up after repair we drove the vehicle for 45 minutes and had a pounding headache, nausea and close to vomiting from fuel vapors inside the vehicle. The vehicle was returned to the dealer and they stated it was ok. The next morning we woke up to our garage smelling dumped out gasoline and the inside of the camry was overwhelmed with gasoline odor and vapors. We called the local fire department who had two fire department crew examine the vehicle and they agreed it smelled like gasoline inside the vehicle. The vehicle was returned to the dealer and they had a factory rep look at the fuel pump who stated as reported to us there was not a proper seal. We picked up the vehicle on 4/17/21 and on 4/20/21 as the shampoo smell was going away from where they shampooed the back seat the gasoline smell is now there again. The only way to properly fix this instead of guessing where the fuel leak is would be to use a gas detector that measures in parts per million and locate the leak and also likely replace the carpet at a minimum. We need your help in resolving the serious safety issue.

Before finding out about the fuel/stall recall I had a couple of issues which I did report to the panama city, fl toyota dealership where I purchased my 2019 toyota camery. Each time they checked it out I was informed that they could not see or find anything in the cars system (I'm guessing the cars computer/diagnostic system I don't know). I know this the car shutters/vibrates/sputters whatever or however you'd like to explain it, like it has bad gas in it. I run only good gas no low grades. Then I found out about this recall and have called the pc toyota dealership servicing department 5 or 6 times that I know of and keep getting put off that their hq office hasn't approved the repairs to date. So I now am scared to drive it!!!!!! I have always been treated and been taken well care of by the pc dealership but at this point I am so disappointed/angry/unsatisfied with this car/pc dealership and toyota in general. My life and other consumers that trust/trusted in this product/vehicle are now in danger of driving a car that could stall and crash and that could cause injury and possibly even death because of this recall issue. And we keep getting put off with them saying keep driving the car and contact us if it gets worse. They make you feel like you're being dishonest when calling into their service department telling them what's going on with their malfunctioning product. Or even when you take it in and their tech's tell you they couldn't or can't find anything you said. My car is getting worse each time I drive it. And the truth is we all take our lives into our own hands when we choose to drive these malfunctioning cars, because if we do pass someone and the car stalls we're toast!! If the car stalls everything turns off and locks up!! Common sense!!!

The seatbelt occupant sensor goes off when I am in motion and there is no one in my back seat. Sometimes, when I place items like groceries or other personal belongings in my backseat and begin driving it reads as a person and the system begins to warn me that the seat belts are not connected. Other times, there will be an actual person sitting in the backseat without their seatbelt on and the system will not warn me while driving. This is extremely dangerous and annoying. If I'm driving alone and the seat belt warning begins to go off there is no way for me to disable it unless I pull over and buckle in the seat belts. This is a major safety concern because if I am not aware someone has taken off their seatbelt I can not be proactive in preventing their injuries if an accident were to occur.

When I had left my house, I pressed the throttle and the car wouldn't go, it was coasting still, but its like it wouldn't go. Then, I pumped the throttle and put it all the way to the floor. It had finally went. This car also seems to have a massive delay when we press the throttle at stop lights. I have contacted toyota about the recall, which they did not inform me of, I had to look it up myself due to the nature of the issues I was experiencing. Sure enough. Fuel pump showed up on the recall which would make sense to why I'm experiencing these issues, the engine is not getting enough gas. Not only did toyota not inform me of the recall but they still have not found a "remedy" for the issue, while I have seen a couple people commenting on their facebook page that their had been fixed. Also, had found out I'm not the only one toyota had not informed of the recall and seems to be a lawsuit currently because of that. I have a newborn. Whats going to happen if the fuel pump goes out with him in it?

The fuel gauge incorrectly displays the fuel in the tank. For example I can drive 160 miles and the gauge has not moved since it was filled up. Further I drove over 600 miles and the fuel gauge indicated 1/4 but when I filled up the car it took 13. 6 gallons of gas. The tank capacity is 14. 5 gallons so that meant I only had 0. 9 gallons of gas yet the car showed 1/4 of the tank of fuel. This could lead to the car running out of gas before the car's fuel gauge indicated. This is a clear safety issue. I have had the car in for repair 4 times at the dealer but toyota refuses to correct the issue

If I can get the replacement part at another service station, toyota will only pay for the part not the labor. This is unacceptable and potentially life threatening. Toyota has known about this issue for a year. I made the decision to lease for the girst time so I wouldn't have unexpected repairs or problems.

I purchased the vehicle from a dealer in june of 2020 and was unaware of any ongoing recalls or that any required service had not been completed. I've had the vehicle in the shop multiple times for engine stalling while driving, engine shaking, misfiring, and loss of forward momentum. Not once did they tell me about the recall or that toyota was aware of the problem until I took the vehicle to a different automotive shop. The new shop gave me all the recall information and advised that the vehicle is not safe to drive. The engine will sputter and shake in idle and in reverse. Consistently the vehicle shakes and runs very rough when in idle, reverse or attempting to accelerate from stop lights, red lights, parking lots, etc. Dealership told me that I wasn't used to the electronic fuel ignition and that the sputtering and delay in forward momentum was normal. One time I was driving 65mph and the vehicle stalled while on a island causeway. Luckily I was in the right had lane and was able to get off the road safely. Another time the vehicle stalled was in a parking lot (again slow speed) and again in reverse. The vehicle did sustain rodent damage to wiring on 2 occasions which the dealership repaired, noted the multiple engine misfires and "cleared the codes". The vehicle ran better for about a week and then the same problem begins reoccurring. The spark plugs continue to foul due to the engine fuel pressure issue.

I was making a left turn (from a stop sign) out of my neighborhood and the car hesitated then, all of a sudden it rev'd up, and shot forward. I'm sure the neighbors thought I was hot rodding. This happened again on a separate day when I was waiting to turn left at a traffic light. There was a pickup truck coming from the opposite direction, but he was far enough away, so I gave it some gas to start my turn. My car hesitated and I thought the pickup was going to hit me, but then my car rev'd up and lunged forward as previously. I thought that maybe it had something to do with making left turns, but one day I was driving about 40 mph on a 45 mph level road and I gave it gas to increase my speed to 45 ---- the same thing happened ---- hesitation, rev'd up, lunged forward. It still does it, but I'm trying to be very careful driving it because I don't know if I'm going to be the next traffic fatality, or worse, cause someone else to be killed or maimed. I also told the service rep when I took my car in for regular maintenance and asked if they could check it. He told me they had checked it and it's okay. I looked at the service report but, I couldn't find where they had checked it. I started looking for info via the internet on this problem and found other sites that had people complaining about it. So, the next regular maintenance I took my car in for, I mentioned it to the service rep and told him about all the complaints I've read concerning this problem of hesitation, etc. I said it seems that it must be normal for this car and that's why the mechanic said it was okay. He agreed that it's normal for this car, but I have nothing in writing that he said that or that the problem was even checked. You never know when it will happen.

Contact your toyota dealer to have your vehicle inspected." the airbag check light never lighted so I didn't see this message until a month in a half later. Dangerous for my passenger which is usually my oldest son. The car is in the dealership now and they are trying to figure out the airbag issue. I feel unsafe in my car due to acceleration delays. The vin# is not in the recall list and I do not understand why not. It has the same issues as the other cars being recalled. The third problem: very randomly the seat belt alert alarm will start beeping while I'm driving my smallest son. Both of us have our seat belts and I do not own a big heavy bag.

In stop and go traffic, traveling at slow speeds with ac on in the middle of summer, if changing to a faster lane, having the gas floored, the car wouldn't accelerate/down shift that lasted about 5-10 seconds before it accelerated. One time, a car that was two cars in front of me pulled out and he was gone, while I was still sitting there with no acceleration and another car quickly approaching from the rear! I was told that others were complaining about these issues, they felt the problem but it is normal operations for the 4 cyl camry's, that the transmission is computer controlled, and there wasn't anything they could do until toyota put out a mod for the computer. They said toyota should have something out soon with all the complaints, but it has been almost a year and no repair available.

Vehicle was in motion on the interstate at 70 mph. The check engine light came on and the engine began to stall. I had to pull over on side the road to prevent from getting hit by an 18 wheeler from the rear. I was able to drive the vehicle a while longer before the engine stalled again. I had to get the vehicle towed to the nearest toyota dealership. They reported an issue with the fuel pump. The dealership reported having many issues with the fuel pump for the 2019 camry. On the date of june 29th repair appointment, they reported they fuel pump is on back order and they would not be able to get the part until july 22nd, 2020 due to so many vehicles having that defect. However, the part is under warranty and would be covered. As a result, I had to privately rent a vehicle without being offered a loaner car or a rental for 2 weeks. I had to spend approximately 1,000 in expenses to cover the cost of not having a vehicle. The vehicle was towed to a dealership in a remote area far from home and work. My disabled mother had to book a hotel to check the vehicle status the following day with my father. I've had the vehicle for 8 months with 29,000 miles. When I placed my vin number in the system, my vehicle wasn't identified or qualified as a recall in the system despite the dealership confirming their were problems with the fuel pump and the description of the vehicle defect matching one of the 5 identified recalls related to the toyota camry. Based on my vin #, my vehicle didn't qualify for any recalls, when I called the toyota recall office, they reported my vehicle didn't meet recall standards . The kelly blue book reported 5 different recalls and their descriptions in relation to the 2019 camry. I noticed the fuel pump defect/symptoms matched with my vehicle out of the 5 identified recalls.

I have a 2019 toyota camry hybrid le which purchased as brand new. After 2-3 months of driving, I noticed that at low speeds and particularly when the road is very flat if the car hits any kind of pothole or bump, there is a grinding noise coming from the front breaks (or maybe the cvt gears engaging for regenerative breaking) and sometimes even the abs light starts shining in the dashboard. This is not easily replicable but it's most likely to happen when slowing down behind a stop sign or red light. At higher speeds or if the breaks are applied with higher force this issue is almost entirely not present. Also, I've not noticed it while the vehicle is turning, it usually only happens when slowing down on a straight and flat road and suddenly one of the tires goes off balance. *tr

My camry has 6k miles on it. On friday, 6 dec 2019 at 1600, I picked up my camry from yuba city toyota after having its first vehicle service. While driving on hwy 20 towards grass valley, ca less than 20 min after picking it up, I heard an extremely loud explosion over my head. It truly sounded like a gun went off in my car. I ducked, looked around and realized it was probably the sunroof because I could hear air blowing. I was on a four lane section of hwy with absolutely no cars in front of me and a car a few hundred yards behind me. There were no trees overhead and it was a clear evening outside with no rain. It was approximately 55 degrees outside also. This was not caused by any objects. Fortunately, I had the inside panel closed and did not have any glass fly into my face. This is extremely dangerous. I filed a claim with toyota and they are working the issue now, but it sounds as if they will not accept responsibility due to it creating a future problem with claims. I was driving 60mph also.

My 2019 camry se has a jerky transmission. The problem occurs at low speed and seems more systematic when reaccelerating from a rolling stop. After slowing down to under 15 mph or so and attempting to regain speed (before reaching a full stop), the car typically takes a second or two to respond to throttle input then lurches forward in an aggressive and potentially dangerous way. This is not a minor inconvenience that one gets used to or can learn to live with. I believe it has the potential to cause harm to me and others in busy traffic.

I drove the car again on the freeway and the sound came back on. I also have felt what other camry users are saying about the lack of acceleration when driving the car. It does take time to pick up speed and it can be dangerous when merging onto freeways and lanes. Need to get this fix or they need to make a recall on this model.

While driving up a hill, the camry would not accelerate with the gas pedal fully pressed. At the top of the hill, the camry with the transmission in drive began rolling backward down the hill at what was approximately 25-30 mph. The brake would not stop the movement of the car. Eventually, the emergency brake was also put in place. The camry rolled down the entire hill and stopped when the back tire hit the curb. The car was still on and in drive mode. We did not collide with any other cars because most were off the street. It was extremely dangerous. Fortunately, we could have been severely injured or worse. This took place on a city street. The hill is very walkable. The fact that the car would not accelerate with the gas pedal fully depressed is alarming for a new car with less than 4 months of use. The brakes would not stop the car from rolling backward while the transmission was in drive. Once the car stopped, it showed a car failure notice. The car was towed to toyota and remains with the dealership today. .

The transmission on this car does not shift the way it should. When accelerating from a stop the transmission seems to have trouble deciding what gear it should be in and the shift points are too high especially when shifting into 3rd or 4th gear. There is some serious hesitation that should not be present. Also, when downshifting it feels like someone tapped the brake pedal because it slows down significantly. If a car brakes in front of me and I have to slow down and then get back on the gas to speed back up it takes too long for the car to get up to speed to keep up with traffic. This has all happened on side streets as I have not taken the car on the highway yet.

I rented a 2019 toyota camry for 9 days. Many times while accelerating the engine lost power. It was especially dangerous when attempting turns in front of ongoing traffic. The car would start to go then just seem to die as I was making the turn. Then engine lights would come on and it would just start coasting. The car never stalled it just would not go. I learned very quickly to not think I could make a turn into the oncoming traffic safely unless I had enough room to coast across the intersection. Also it iwas very dangerous when trying to merge into traffic. I looked this up on the internet and it seems to be a very common problem with camry's but I do not understand why there is not a recall or, at least, a invstigation started by nhtsa.

I recently purchased a 2019 toyota camry in february. I've noticed that while driving the vehicle, the engine seems to hesitate and jerk when accelerating. This is a cause for concern because when slowing down and giving the vehicle gas, it causes the rpms to shoot up and the car jerks forward. This can cause the vehicle to strike a vehicle or anything in front of it. It is not any different if the vehicle is stationary or in motion. In either situation the vehicle is hesitating and jerking while accelerating. It is also dangerous to turn into oncoming traffic. If the car struggles to accelerate it can cause a collision.

I just got the car about a month and a 1/2 ago everything seemed fine until 2 weeks later after I purchased the vehicle I notice some lagging and hard jerking in the transmission when I barely push the accelerator I notice from 1st to 2nd gear it had a hard time wanting to know when to shift and when to wanna go smooth then a week and a 1/2 later the lane departure light turns on and the crash control I turned them off but it still turned on even know I went into the vehicle settings to turn them off a week following the lights started coming on more progressive except this time it deactivates all the cameras front and back I went 3 times and the main mechanic said not exaggerating *its like a phone it needs to learn how to work itself over time it will get better the only way we can fix it is when you brake down and get towed* all know is, is that the vehicle doesn't seem to know when to want to shift correctly there is a lag when pushing the pedal, when yielding and go it jerks hard when slowing down I feel it downshifting hard eith little thuds and my sensor lights come on and deactivate my cameras

The transmission is very clunky thru the gears. I have an automatic, sometimes its delayed when I'm trying to accelerate, itll hesitate before taking off. Iv found if you pulse the gas peddle and let up right as it starts to hesitate then back down again itll kinda avoid it but I'm not always such an active driver. Even down shifting itll be clunky and take a sec to fully do it. Like if you pull into a driveway that's slanted up you first of all have to slow down to enter and when doing that it's all slow at down shifting then u gotta hit the gas some to go up the driveway and it's all delayed at accelerating so the whole process is just clunky and does not feel right. Makes me feel the transmission is gonna burn out early. They say the 2018 models and up use some computerized transmission... I just want to it respond accordingly and to not be so sluggish about it. Sometimes I'm scared to pull out in front of traffic because it wont respond right away and I'll be at a crawling speed till it responds unless I floor it fast and let up before it revs past 3 on the rpm then tap it again. It's like it wakes it up or something I dont understand.

I have a 2019 toyota camry hybrid , I have always taken very good care of it maintenance wise etc. ,my wife & I were driving a few days ago and heard a ticking noise that sounded odd so we immediately stopped at a pep boys as it sounded oddly- I he gentlemen there checked the oil mind you we always only ever take the car to toyota dealerships but had never heard this ticking noise and wanted to check right away. The gentleman told us that we needed oil and proceeded to add 2qts if oil , he checked again and added 2more quarts , we also have never had to add oil nor have we burned oil in his car ever in between oil changes - this was very odd as we have never enemies had a drop of oil in our driveway ever. So after the oil was added we started the car and the ticking noise had subsided, we headed towards our home and a severe loud clanking noise way worse than before started and a light came on telling us to immediately pull over and to place the car in park- we towed to toyota immediately and were told that we needed a new engine- later I read about a defect that we were never told about, not in a recall nor otherwise, our person at toyota dealership said nothing either about their ever being a problem with this car nor a recall if any sort and I certainly never received anything in the mail either - not only is this a safety issue but is pure fraud and negligence in toyota's part to ignore and say nothing at all - I am not under warranty but not his defect was never brought to our attention- what can I do ? Possibly due in a small claims court ? Please help - I have entered my vin# in a couple different sites and then here is no recall or anything whatsoever closely related to this under this vin # this actually happened on 6-16-2019 but this system would not allow me to enter the correct date for some reason!

Purchased my 2019 toyota camry xle couple of weeks back with 5 miles on it. Noticed the vehicle had issues with acceleration. When resuming to drive from a red light or stopped position, the car seem to have a major delay in acceleration and makes a loud engine noise when pressing the gas pedal. Even pressing down a bit more on the gas pedal during this initial acceleration, the car does not react much and barely picks up speed. There is a major delay, one that can be dangerous when merging onto a highway where quick acceleration is needed to avoid being a hazard to other motorists. Have not taken vehicle back to toyota service dealer but did text my salesman and described the issue and he said to setup an appointment. I have a feeling the service department will come back saying it's nothing is wrong and functioning normally. To me this is a major design flaw that has safety concerns tied to it. Please help in any way you can. Need toyota to do a recall on this vehicle in order to fix this issue.*dt

The car has an issue with shifting from 1st to 2nd. When pressing gas pedal the car briefly accelerates and then the rpm drops and the car almost decelerates. When pressing the gas pedal again the car starts to jerk back and forth until the gas pedal is released. The problem is very reproducible and my sales managers at toyota sunnyvale were trying to convince me that this is normal. They even claimed to have driven a number of other similar cars and told me that all of them have this "normal" behavior (which confirms that a lot of cars should have this problem). They also said the car is "learning", which is totally bogus. After approaching them with service bulletin t-sb-0330-17 which describes the exact same problem but for 2018 model, they claimed my car can't have this problem since bulletin is for 2018, but the cars have exact same transmissions.

When decelerating and then trying to accelerate vehicle stalls and does not accelerate when you push vehicle acceleration pedal. Its happens quite often when you slow at intersections or for a turn and then try to accelerate, it pauses as if the engine has died but engine is running, just no response when you push gas pedal for one or two seconds. One time while trying to pas a slow truck on a two lane highway, pulled out to pass and then tried to accelerate, vehicle just stall as if engine had stopped and was left in on coming traffic with out being able to accelerate for a few seconds, very scary. It seems to happen more often at lower speeds when decelerating and then trying to accurate. Vehicle behind me almost impacted rear of my vehicle when I tried to accelerate to keep up with traffic but vehicle stalled. But it has happened on the freeway as well. I have had it happened to me at least ten or more times when I have driven my wife's vehicle.

    My 2019 Toyota Camry started to randomly stutter, lag in acceleration or randomly jerk (usually on the highway) ever since the Toyota dealership had replaced the fuel pump as a recall issue back in 2021– and the car has just not been the same ever since (it is less than three years old and under 36k miles). I’ve taken it back to the dealership several times and they kept saying they could never find anything wrong even after hitting me up for a diagnostic fee every time. Finally last week, the car stuttered and stalled completely right at a traffic light, with the engine light and malfunction message popping up– I literally had to get it towed to the nearest dealership. Toyota HQ in Texas have been slow and unwilling to really assist in my issue, saying my warranty doesn’t apply and I intend to evolve this to litigation

    I bought a 2019 Toyota Camry with 22,000 miles.First it was fine.Than I noticed the rpm in the charging system was acting up.It would rev up too the power back down to charge like the car was shutting down.My steering felt funny and my brake petal would go although way too the floor.
    Originally the maintenance required light came on and a triangle with a explanation mark. I had driven the car for about 2 thousand miles. It was supposed to be a certified Toyota Camry.So contacted the dealer and the said mane the forgot to reset the system before it was on the lot for purchase.He said anyone could rest it.So I took it by another dealer and ask them to rest it.They came out and did it by the steering well. I have seen that triangle with the explanation mark come on and go right off a few times.
    That the car seem like it was not using gas ,just very slightly. I went to a neither dealer because the brakes seem not to be working even with the petal to the floor. I was told it’s probably the battery and that’s maintenance and I would need to pay.
    WHAT , I have owned the car for 3 months and about 3 thousand miles.it should be aleast under a manufacture warranty.The car has 25,000 miles.They wanted to charge a diagnosis fee.WHAT IT IS A CERTIFIED TOYOTA CAR.Today I am going to a fourth dealer to see what is going on with my Camry. I bring under warranty and seeing many others have similar issues our cars should be under a recall. I am scared to drive it because I not sure when it will act up.

    I recently purchased a 2019 camry XLE/ There seems to be a hesitancy about it when taking off, it just doesn’t seem to have the power of my previous 2005 Camry LE which I had from 2005 – 2022, march. I’m thinking of actually trading it as there appear to be something that’s just not right. Plus the attitude of the dealer sucks when attempting to speak with the general manager, I don’t need this behavior or car if they’re acting this way. Plus when I purchased the vehicle I noticed a few days after picking it up that all four tires were different makes. After speaking with the salesman, he informed me that this was normal if the tires were good. What can I do?

    I hate my 2019 Toyota Camry I asked at 100 miles about the jerking and stalling they said you have t driven it enough so at every 5000 mile service I complain of same issues with transmission and I’m continually told to get used to it as it’s the new 8 speed trans and it’s running as it should. I’m just waiting to be hit by a car as it stalls then jerks forward and backward almost feels like it’s taking a big gulp of air through every shift. Do not get a Toyota run away

    I bought a new Toyota Camry in Ireland, have an appointment with the dealer soon. The problem is the drivers front fender and the drivers door, the gap is narrowing and the fender is bulging out.
    Let’s hope this is not structural in the car, however it is a big worry as to why should a wing / fender move after 24,000 Km, my friend has a Camry same year and model with exactly the same issue.
    I intend to get a motor assessor on the issue immediately as this seems a common problem.

I took the car to Mossy Toyota in San Diego and after more then 10 days they told the manufacturer Toyota would take the car back. I had to go back there and sign papers for the new car another 2019 Toyota Camry. Less than 2 years later there is a recall where the car could stop in high speed because a fuel problem.

    I’m worried that my car is a lemon. I have a 2019 SE Camry. It’s been skipping a little since I had it from day one and I let them know. They said I wasn’t pushing on the gas peddle enough during acceleration. Yesterday at the a traffic light, my car skipped 3 times before taking off and it startled me and today it’s skipping slightly. Very concerned this is a transmission problem. I’m a single mom and on a fixed budget. Now I’m stuck worrying about needing to replace this car already at 15k miles!

    Bought a new 2019 Camry, at about 5000 miles. Stuck the keys into ignition, car would not start, no power, took the keys out and back in a couple of times, the lights finally came on, but the cranking was weak, but still would not start, after a few more times of taking the key out and putting it back in to try it finally started, very strange for a one time case, but it happened a few more times. Also, the front passenger window would not go down. Took it to Toyota of Poway and they said they could not repeat the problem with the ignition problem and the battery tested fine. They also were able to fix the window. I left the dealer hoping this would not happen again, but it did. Again, the car would not start for 45 seconds and this time the front passenger and back left window would not go down. I am going back to Toyota, but this time Toyota of Carlsbad. Do I have a lemon?
