Toyota Quality is Lacking
By dwdesil on


2012 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Have been a loyal Toyota driver for 25 years and the 2012 Camry is by far the poorest build quality I have ever experienced. With less than 8k miles on the car I have paint peeling and a popping noise coming from the headliner. A Toyota district rep was dispatched to diagnose the sound problem I experienced every time I made a right hand turn and determined that insulation between the headliner and the roof had delaminated. They replaced and added shims to fix the problem. The paint bubbled up on the quarter panel and flaked off. They took samples and have sent it to a new Toyota field rep in charge of paint issues. Still not resolved. This car was built at the Subaru facility in Indiana.

Best Features

Excellent gas mileage. Average 35-37 mpg on road. Makes sure it is not an ethanol blend. Streaming music and blue tooth connection The car is very quiet.

Worst Features

Address maufacturing quality issues. I will not buy another Toyota given these defects. I should have kept my 2005 Prius with 190k miles on it.

Brand new model built at the Subaru plant - not surprising that you have a few build quality issues. Toyota will get it fixed and it should be fine.
