#187 of 200 Sun visors just droop into your line of vision!

I have an interesting problem. The wind shield visors just droop down infront of your face. Toyota wants $400 to replace both. This is a safety issue. Is there a way to just tighten them?

I have the same problem in my 09. the driver's visor no longer snaps back and sits flush with the ceiling. for me it's not as bad as yours, but still it's very annoying.

My 2008 also has same problem. I talked to mechanic, he told me to buy new from delaer or used from junk yard. It is easy to replace taking plastic cover off Then unscrew screws and unplug wires. Put new in reverse order.

#191 of 200 2008 Camry Air Bags
Sep 13, 2012 (12:36 pm)
I am concern on the safety of this particular model.
My son recently had an accident driver side and frontal impact where neither the driver side or the side air bags deployed; therefore, he sustained serious head and face injuries.
We have owned toyotas for many years and are very pleased with their performance; however, in this particular time, it did not live up to the safety measures we expect.
Does anyone else know of an incident similar to this one and if there is a recall on this model and year? I looked and couldn't find anything.

No recalls or TSBs. Many people in every make and model car have similar things happen (air bags do not deploy).
#193 of 200 excessive fuel consumption
Nov 09, 2012 (9:43 am)
I have used this car for slightly over four years now, a 1999 model toyota camry, however I becoming more alarmed now because of the fuel consumption, it uses 59 liters of fuel to cover just about 70kilometer distance, that is about 45 mpg within the city. what could possibly be the problem with the fuel consumption, it is outrageous!
#194 of 200 Couldn't turn the car off completely and couldn't get the key out.
Nov 09, 2012 (10:49 am)
So last night I parked my car and went to turn it off like a normal person would and I couldn't do it. The stopped once click shy of turning off and it wouldn't turn anymore. The engine shut off fine but the radio continued to play and the interior lights were on then went out. I turned the car back on, which went fine, but the same thing happened when I went to turn it off again. I turned the car back on, backed up a little, then moved forward, put it into park and again the key wouldn't turn into that last click to shut everything off. I called my friend out, he tried everything I did, it didn't work for him either. I asked him to take the car around the block, park it again and see if that would work. This time it did. It hasn't happened again since last night but is this something I should be worried about?

Do you mean the backlighting or the actual instruments appear to stop working? There is a problem surfacing in some 07 and 08 Camry's that make the instruments act up inculding speedometer, tach, and warning lights. If your AC compressor also cuts off look to a problem in the CAN network. Most always the ABS pump and module. Post back with details. There is a lower cost fix.
