I have a 2009 Camry. My mechanic told me twice that my struts are leaking and need to be replaced. The Toyota service center continues to tell me that they are leaking a "normal" amount and refuse to replace them. I called Toyota directly who did nothing for me. Basically, I have to wait until they are leaking enough and then they will no longer be under warranty. I am furious. With the recent recalls, Toyota should be completely willing to fix any problems.

I always thought when struts start leaking they need replacement. Sounds like dealer hooey to me. Face it, Toyota seems to becoming the new "old GM" arrogantly internally focused while ignoring the customer.

Try bringing your car to different dealer. Some dealer will replace it, some won't. That's the experience I had. According to Toyota leaking struts and cupping/feather tires are "by design". By design my ass. Are your tires starting to cup or or feathering? If they are, the struts are definitely bad and is not "by design". I had to take them to small claim for them to pay out for my struts and tires. They finally seattled. Toyota is building really bad cars now a day. This Toyota is my last Toyota I'm going to buy unless their quality change. You should report them to the National Highway Safty, New Vehicle Board, etc. That's what I did. The more complaint they get on that issue, the agencies will look into it. Good luck and let me know how things turn out.
#246 of 283 Help with tire for 07 Camry
Jul 16, 2010 (5:45 am)
I need new tires for my 07 Camry XLE . I have 27,000 miles and have the original Bridgstone Turanza tires. After reading I see the tires do not last long. I like the ride and quietness but thought I would get a little more miles from tires. Anyway I need to replace them and I don't know which ones to buy. Any help would be really appreciated.

go to www.tirerack.com, for reviews of different tires.
On our 07, we replaced the OEM Michelin Energy MXV4-S8's, with Michelin Pilot Exalto AS's. They've been a nice tire, have about 20K on the Pilot's at this point. I would replace with same if was going to be buying tires again (assuming they're still available/made.....haven't checked tirerack).

I have the OEM Michelin MXV4 S8 tires on one of my Camrys and have been quite pleased with them. A colleague at work has purchased the same tires for his same-generation Camry (a 2004) and goes through a set in about 27K miles, the same as you. He definitely drives more aggressively than my wife and I do. He likes them so much that he just keeps on buying them despite the relatively rapid wear.
I agree with kiawah about checking the reviews on Tire Rack.

The rims from a Ford Taurus (and Mercury Sable) have a bolt circle of 107.9mm (yes, the decimal is important!), while the Camry has a bolt circle of 114.3mm, so wheels from a Taurus (Sable) will NOT fit a Camry - and vice versa!.

I cant seem to get a straight answer from anyone. I have a 2010 Camry XLE with 16 inch alloys. I recently bought a set of OEM take off steel wheels and hub caps from a 2010/2011. The hub caps have the holes in them so the lugs show through. I have called different dealership service departments and the parts departments and get different answers. WHAT LUGS DO I USE ON THE STEELIES...THE ALLOY LUGS OR BUY STEELIE LUGS? The steelie lugs at the dealer are open ended and will look aweful through the hub caps. One dealer says use the alloy lugs another says no way wont be safe. Another said she would check the lot for an LE with hubcaps and run the vin to see what lugs it has???? Whatever that means. Not much online for answer either, some posts say yes, some say no. Any help? All I want is a set of lugs that a 2010 or 2011 Camry LE with hubcaps has.
