The 2021 Toyota Camry is a sedan that has been a popular choice among drivers. The automaker claims that this model is “more than capable,” but it isn’t clear what it is capable of. Current owners feel it is capable of creating a lot of disappointment from the tires to the electrical system.

Problems with the Tires

The 2021 Toyota Camry isn’t an expensive vehicle, but it still should come equipped with reliable tires. Yet, that’s not what customers are finding.

One Edmunds review states, “Very important issues are the cheap tires that were put on the car…resulting in a loud bumpy vibrating ride. I find it a very disrespectful & unsafe move directed by Toyota toward the consumer.”

Toyota is clearly skimping on the basics, with issues across all systems. Just take a look at Service Bulletin #T-TT-0628-20, that makes it sound like a normal thing to have the HVAC drain tube blocked or clogged. The company treats drivers like these things are just to be expected, even though it’s not. These are not normal situations and Toyota should be taking steps to rectify them. If the automaker were as “capable” as it claims to be, no one would need to have these discussions.

Problems with the Electrical System

It turns out that the faults also move into the electrical system and equipment, creating an undesirable ride.

Another Edmunds customer writes, “Adaptive cruise control disconnects around 20mph (except 2 trims), dash is a decade behind, and Apple CarPlay would not work without Toyota app.”

Toyota isn’t attempting to hide defects. Service Bulletin #T-SB-0066-20 Rev goes on to discuss how the Apple CarPlay can cause an abnormal screen, especially when using it for phone calls. Additionally, Toyota recognizes that the sound quality is poor during these phone calls when using Apple CarPlay. What they aren’t coming to terms with is how to make customers happy again. There was a time when Toyota was the leader in the sedan market. It was a company known for reliability and value, but that seems to be fading into the sunset recently.
