My new 2014 Camry vibrated, initially now better,

Purchased new 2014.5 Camry SE automatic. Noticed vibration at light throttle auto trans upshifts. Toyota has acknowledged this problem in 2012-2014 Camry automatics and has issued an LSC Limited service campaign to fix software. Took my car back to dealer at 200, 500 and 1300 miles and I keep getting the this is"normal" story. Well, vibration at upshifts, and for several miles at low rpm when driving in the 40-50 mph range is not acceptable. Heading to arbitration as I hate driving the car. Be careful when purchasing, take a long test drive. Make sure that at low rpms doesn't shake test on a smooth stretch of road so you can tell its not just road bumps. UPDATE By the time arbitration was held, vibration was much improved. Arbitrator would not drive car, so he had no way of feeling what I was concerned about. I lost and no action was taken. Now it 11,500 miles, much improved, just a slight vibration when running at low rpm 12-1500 when car is cold and is in 5th or 6th idling along at 50 mph. At this point I'll probably live with it as I do like the look and feel of the car. Used no oil between 5,000 mile oil changes . Ride is a bit harsh as it is an SE model but the lousy OEM Turanza El-400 tires may be the reason. See reviews on this tire. Now at 5 years and 28,000 miles I have to say I like the car and will keep it. No further trans vibrations and firm SE suspension has softened up a little. Will replace tires with better MIchelins. OIl changes and filters only no reliability issues. Update at 4 years and 21000 miles. No service needed, rattle free, 34 MPG on a long trip at 75-80 mph. TRansmission issues have gone away. Still not sure if I want to keep the car past the 5 year drive train warranty as I still have visions of ground up metal pieces circulating in the trans fluid. After almost 6 years and 30K, no longer concerned about trans. Shifts very smoothly and crisply. Decided to keep past initial 5 year warranty. No problems. Change oil myself now, air and cabin filters only other replacements needed and were easy and cheap. Ride has softened up slightly so I.m now glad I stayed with SE over LE.City/Highway mix driving of 10-15 miles or less is till around 28 MPG. UPDATE: 2/18/2021 Not driving much due to COVID. Car has 32K miles. No repairs ever. I now change the oil annually. Essentially 0 oil consumption. Car still very solid,no rattles or annoyances. Due to very cold weather 0 F was able to notice that car has exceptional cold weather performance. Warms up and shifts well. I'm past worrying about the initial trans shudder. At some point may do an early trans fluid drain and fill.

Jack of Most Trades; Perfect Cruiser

My first car was a new bare bones Civic. It set the standard for what I expect from a new car. Fast forward to 2014 and I chose the Camry SE V6 as it checked all the boxes for a larger, comfortable, more powerful car A master of most trades, Camry is for the most part a no brainer but in less than a year I have found a few things that make me question Toyotas quality. The Camry is the perfect interstate cruiser and an overall good value checking all the boxes at the expense of a few shortcuts in build quality. If you want a spacious 4 door, efficient & quick ride with a sporty flair in your daily driver,the Camry is a great option and easily matches the V6 Accord in that quest.

Look it up. Most of these cars are defective with a torque converter shudder under light throttle, heck...I've been through TWO torque converters and now a new transmission. Still shudders. I wish this was 90s Toyota when their cars were actually good. Nope, this is cost cutting Toyota. Transmission doesn't even have a dipstick. Trading! Two words.....Call Honda

New Camry is a big blunder

The new Camry is a big blunder. The numb steering makes the drive as not comfortable. You don't feel driving car but feel like riding a boat. The steering doesn't come back to normal position after you make turn. If driving in above 60 you feel like car is out of alignment a floating on water. I made big mistake buying this car. Poor out side look and not comfortable ride.

battery issues

If you don't drive a distance daily you will have problems with a dead battery. I have had my battery replaced twice and I purchased my car in 2014 brand new. Apparently because I work very close to home my battery gets drained and when the weather turns cold my battery dies. I was told because of the electronics the car needs to run more to keep the battery charged. I had an Avalon for many years and never had this issue because it didn't have all the sophisticated electronics. So the solution drive around more to avoid this problem. Crazy!!
