#1 of 65 The Camry and Vehicle Stability Control
Feb 19, 2007 (3:02 pm)
Toyota/Lexus/Scion offers VSC on almost every model. It is now standard on all Tundras and can be disabled on the trucks if needed.
VSC as Toyota/Lexus calls it, should be the next big thing in safety. So much so that the NIHS is reccomending that it be standard on all vehicles sold in America. It may end up saving more lives than seatbelts.
Having owned a Highlander AWD, Tundra D Cab 4WD, Scion xB, and now a Camry, all with VSC, I have personally experienced VSC in action. My '05 Tundra SR5 was ordered with it.
Someone mentioned the Subaru's fine performance in New England winters. Their AWD system led the way but Subaru has not kept pace in the VSC arena. It comes only on the top of the line models unlike Toyota which even made it standard on the Scion xB.
Consumer Reports also questioned the Subie system's performance. I expect Subaru to rapidly improve their system and make it available on all their vehicles soon,
Toyota's VSC system [which is always packaged with Traction Control], is the industry leader. The TC makes a front driver like the Camry even better in the snow.
I had to wait 3 weeks for an LE 4cyl with it to be built and shipped. I will never own another vehicle without it.
How does the Camry system work? It hasn't "gone off" yet.

I have had mine go off on a spirited run 2 nights ago when it popped into 2nd and there was sand on the road from the plow trucks. It works fantastic, probably the best I've ever owned. I am a little disappointed that there is no manual overide.

VSC will be required on all vehicles sold in the US by 2012.

You "popped" into second in a FWD vehicle..??
That takes a brave, Brave, BRAVE, driver.
Lucky the VSC was there to save you.

While checking for codes with my Actron Scanner on my 2003 Camry xle, the vsc and trac off light came on. Is there a way to turn these lights off? The scanner reads no codes present..
Thanks for your help..
#6 of 65 Stability Control on Camry LE (4cyl.)
Sep 03, 2007 (2:00 pm)
I'm in process of buying Camry LE (4cyl) and want it to have a VSC. But dealer told me that Toyota doesn't install it on LE models. I'm confused. Is there anyone who own LE with VSC?
Thanks in advance, Bob.

Yes, I have a 4 cyl LE, with VSC. Bought it back when the 2007's were just released, here in the SE.
You don't indicate where you are located, and that option might not be ordered by a particular Toyota region.
If you can't find one in inventory, try www.fitzmall.com
Fitzmall is in the central region, and they typically have had a lot of VSC's

Unfortunately, if your dealer is on the West Coast, he's probably telling you a partial truth. Toyota divides itself into about 12 sales zones. Each zone decides how it wants to equip particular models. In a mild climate VSC may not sell well enough for them to want to carry it. So, that zone may not carry VSC in the model you want.
Toyota will never use the slogan "Have it your way" in advertising.
Solution, unless you want to go out of zone, buy the hybrid Camry. VSC is standard.
