New Toyota Camry Transmission Problem
By Marc on

Vehicle

2008 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

This car came with a defect in the software governing the transmission. The glitch causes a 3 - 4 second delay when rapid acceleration is needed. This is a safety hazard, and is the reason I strongly advise people to consider a different car manufacturer. Toyota has done nothing to address this issue, which I noticed immediately after driving off the new car lot. I did not test drive this car before signing the paperwork, but instead drove a test model "just like it" which did not have the glitch. The dealership and corporate office have shown an utter indifference, and deny that this is a safety concern. It IS a safety concern, so please consider a different manufacturer.

Favorite Features

It is impossible to give any positive feedback on a car with such a glaring safety issue. Three to four seconds of delayed reaction is a very long time when rapid acceleration is needed.

Suggested Improvements

Toyota says this acceleration defect does not occur in cars manufactured after February 2007, but our car was manufactured in October 2007. Toyota's corporate office told us they are "not required by law to disclose known problems with their cars" to potential buyers. Beware--Toyota has changed!
