2009 Toyota Camry Recalls
Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.
During assembly, the electrical contacts of the stop lamp switch may have been contaminated with silicone grease, causing increased electrical resistance in the switch. This could result in: Illumination of warning lamps; a no start condition; the shift lever may not shift from the Park position; and/or inoperative brake lights. Inoperative brake lights would fail to warn other drivers the vehicle is slowing or stopping, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.
These vehicle were sold without the required load carrying captivity modification label. Dealers will mail the corrected label to vehicle owners. Owners have the option of requesting that the dealer install the label. This recall is expected to begin on May 27, 2010.

It had no defects in the finish, excellent t...
Canadian (Quebec) cannot enter postal code site which is only accepting Zip code. Not from Mi but from Qc. I like this 2009 Camry car, in spite of the problems I had with it. I like much less the service from the dealer. Rear passenger side brake worn out completely at 70,000 km (40,000 miles), obviously the dealere did not want to understand such failure related to initial greasing of t...
