Toyota Camry recalls

 

For Models: Toyota Avalon, Toyota Avalon Hybrid, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Venza

Body, Interior & Misc., October 17, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

As part of normal operation of the air conditioning system, condensation will accumulate in the condenser housing behind the dashboard. A drain is incorporated so that excess water can drain out. This drain hose can become plugged, the accumulated water can leak onto the airbag control module. This can result in an electrical short in the control module. If this were to occur the airbags could become disabled or deploy unexpectedly. Improper airbag operation increases the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. The power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort. Dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module to correct this concern.

For Models: Toyota Avalon, Toyota Avalon Hybrid, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla

Electrical & Lights, October 17, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

An electrical short can develop in the windshield wiper switch assembly. As a result, the wipers may not function as expected. If the driver's visibility is reduced the risk of a crash increases. Dealers will replace the wiper switch assembly in affected vehicles to correct this concern.

Body, Interior & Misc., April 9, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

For Models: Pontiac Vibe, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Yaris

Electrical & Lights, October 10, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Toyota Camry, Toyota Venza

Electrical & Lights, March 7, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Lexus ES330, Lexus RX330, Lexus RX400h, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Sienna

Engine, November 9, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The amount of adhesive applied between the inner and outer parts of the crankshaft pulley may be inadequate. If this is the case, the outer ring may become misaligned and/or not properly rotate with the inner ring, causing an abnormal noise and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light. In some cases, the power steering belt could come off resulting in a loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the crankshaft pulley and replace it if necessary.

For Models: Scion tC, Scion xB, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Celica, Toyota Corolla, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Prius, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Solara, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Venza, Toyota Yaris

Body, Interior & Misc., May 27, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Scion tC, Scion xA, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Corolla, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Prius, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Venza, Toyota Yaris

Body, Interior & Misc., May 27, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Southeast Toyota is recalling 2005–2011 models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on tire selection and rims. Affected models were sold without the proper load-carrying capacity modification labels, which may cause the driver to overload the vehicle, increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will mail the correct labels to the customer or install the label free of charge.

For Models: Toyota Camry

Brakes, March 4, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling certain 2010 Camrys because the length of the power steering pressure hose on 4-cylinder engines may be insufficient, leaving a gap. This may cause the brake tube to interfere with the crimp, wear, and then perforate. This can cause a leak in the brake fluid, which adversely impacts braking performance. Dealers will replace or adjust the brake tube free of charge.

For Models: Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., February 5, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 2005–2010 Avalon; 2007–2010 Camry, 2009–2010 Corolla, Corolla Matrix, and Rav4; 2010 Highlander; 2008–2010 Sequoia; and 2007–2010 Tundra models because the sliding surface of the friction lever may become smooth during operation, which can cause condensation. This may cause the accelerator pedal to become harder to depress, slower to return, or to become stuck in a partially depressed position, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal so it will operate smoothly.
