Purchased new 2014.5 Camry SE automatic. Noticed vibration at light throttle 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 "normal" story. Well, vibration at upshifts, and for several 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 low rpms doesn't shake test on a smooth stretch of road so you can tell its not just road bumps.
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.
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!!
I leased a 2014 Toyota Camry in August of 2014. Two months later I had to take it in because of a moldy/mildew smell coming from the air conditioner. I was told at the time that "Camry's are known for that issue". The unit was cleaned but I was told it was just a temporary fix. When I turned the air on this spring, the smell was back even worse than before. When I called Freeman Toyota they said that there was nothing they could do to fix the issue. I called Toyota and was told their stance was that it was an "environmental issue". They should stand behind their customer satisfaction claim and either fix the problem or replace the car.
My wife can't even drive the car because of allergies.
I bought my new Camry L 2014 a month ago.
I was going to get a Corolla, but the dealer had a 20% discount on all Camrys for that weekend, and I decided to go for it.
I would be VERY happy with my new car except for its very poor MGP fuel performance.
Driving with the ECO on all the time, I am hardly getting 20.5 miles per gallon in city!
How can this be?
How can Toyota
get away underrepresenting Camry MPG for almost 20%?
I have read other owner comments on this issue at this site and I am shocked to learn that some Camry's are making 26 mpg in city.
Is my car an anomaly?
Is there anything I can claim to my dealer about this? What can I do?
