#289 of 291 chronic dead battery camry
Jan 20, 2013 (4:56 pm)
My girlfriend owns a 2011 Camry. The battery goes dead after 3 days when it is parked with a fully charged battery summer or winter. Up here it is -40 F. so this is a safety issue in the winter. You come to your car and it won't start at -40 you could end up with hypothermia. Toyota solution is to tell her to drive the car more. She can't because she is a flight attendant and she is gone for 3-4 days at a time. Toyota dealership sure has not been very helpful!! She has been back a 1/2 dozen times. I will never recommend a Camry to anyone based on the treatment she got from the dealership. Has anyone come-up with a solution to this chronic problem in Camry's.?

My mother has a 2008 Avalon that had that same problem. Our local Toyota dealer said the same thing, to drive it more, which is a load of croc. The owner of the Toyota dealer where my sister lived said to bring it to them. They had it for almost a week and came up with the answer. The autodimming mirror was wired backwards at the port where the car came in, which I think was Houston. The mirror was constantly on when the car was off draining the battery. After the mirror was wired correctly, the car battery has not died, and by the way, my mother drives an average of 10 miles a week. She has become the little old lady that only drove her car to church on Sunday. Hope this is what your solution turns out to be.
#291 of 291 Air filter for 2009 camry hybrid
Jan 23, 2013 (6:28 am)
I needed to change my air filter and went to the dealer with the car model number and engine size, 2.4L. They looked in the computer and gave me a filter which is too small. But the current one I have does not have a number on it and I don't see one in the manual.
The new one the dealer gave me is #17801-0H050 which is not wide enough.
Anyone know what the model number should be for the 2009 Camry Hybrid 2.4L engine?
