2012 Toyota Camry Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Camry SE: Not One of the 7.4 Million

October 10, 2012

2012 Toyota Camry

Toyota today announced the global recall of 7.4 million vehicles, including 2.7 million cars in the U.S. The majority of the recalls in this country involve Camry and Camry Hybrid models from 2007 to 2009, so our 2012 Camry is not subject to the recall. That's a relief.

Toyota says that owners will be notified by mail and that it will take about an hour to fix the "notchy" power window master switch, which can pose a fire hazard.

Every week, carmakers proactively recall cars for defects large and small (often nudged or shoved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Defect Investigations). But as our writer John O?Dell reported recently, owners frequently ignore recall notices and cars with potentially deadly defects get passed along to often-unsuspecting buyers.

What's your stance on recalls? Do you hop on notices ASAP? Or do you let some things slide?
