#292 of 303 AT Problem solved on 2012 model
Apr 12, 2012 (5:28 am)
I drove a 2012 Camry L, and the rough shifting a lot of us have complained about on our 2010, and 2011 Camry's is not there. I still like my 2011, though. 16,xxx miles, and no problems. Very comfortable. Maybe get a job 38 minutes away, not worried about the commute at all.

Got the job, 30.12 mpg, back, and forth! Think part of the problem I was getting with my last job, and mpg was that the speed limit was 65 up and down the 15 miles of highway I was traveling everyday, back, and forth to work, and now it's 55. Also, a longer commute, and longer days mean less city driving. Whatever is doing it, I'm liking it. Plus, this car should hold up to high miles. Figure I'll be doing about 20,000 per year, unless I move closer. I like my Camry.

I have a 2011 camry . My complaint is the hard shifting in between gears.Hot or cold the tranny shifts hard as it drops in. The dealer said its normal/ a natural computer problem. Unless alot of peole complain they will not address it. He agreed when we drove it but said the computer giving the signals to shift, down shift etc.. is not as fluid as it could be....I would not buy this car. I have 4 toyotas.

Well my 2011 with the "normal hard shifting problem" left me stranded on the interstate last night. This past week I noticed the engine almost dying and then revving back up. I thought maybe bad gas? no other problems till last night. Everything fine on drive to restuarant. When we got in the car check engine light on, ABS light on and the transmission would not shift out of 2nd gear. Read book and it says make sure gas tank is full??? Not sure what that has to do with it but filled the tank. ABS light went off but car would still not shift out of 2nd gear. Called Triple A and had it towed 75 miles to the nearest toyoto dealership. Should have kept my Honda with 170,000 miles and no problems!!! Seems like this is a consistent problem with Toyota and wonder what kind of run around I will get on Monday about how normal this is???
#296 of 303 Transmission problems intake related?
Dec 01, 2012 (2:39 pm)
I modified my intake (removed the carbon filter). The problem with shifting went away and I had significant more power (no downshifting on hills) and 2mpg increase. It didn't happen right away because the computer had to learn the new air flow. After 2000 mi I'm convinced.
I think the Canadians and other none 50 state cars don't have the carbon filter and I was wondering if they had the same problems we've experienced

In Canada Toyota has a tech bulletin can-tsb3526.
It largely adresses the knotty shifting, coast deacceleration and general smoothness.
Not sure of original date but it is a software update.
Dealer had tried many things, but this seems to be it.
#298 of 303 2006 camary rolls when not running and in park????
Jan 04, 2013 (4:16 pm)
I have a 2006 toyota camary that the shifts sticks when trying to go from P to R or D. The other night got out at a store (the parkin lot was no more than 10 to 15°) killed the car and didnt relize it was still in drive. The keys came out( remember still in drive) and as i was walking in the store looked back and relized thee car was rolling into the middle of the parking lot. So i ran to it and saw it was Still in drive. I run to it pull it back to the spot and put in P . when i got back in it i put it in Drive and tried to start it and guess what .................... U GUESSED IT, the car started and moved forward like i was driving. Then i put it in park and started it and I didnt need my foot on the break to put it into gear. I mean wtf? I always thought toyota was "THE BEST" . someone please tell me this is a recall.

Took the car in, the servie rep said that's how they drive. Second time we took it in, one of the local techs said they should not drive that way. They reset the computer, same issue, we took it back they replaced transmission, same issue, Toyota Rep came and drove the car. He said that's how they drive. My wife (her car) wants to file claim with Toyota, but I have heard they won't do anything. Has anyone one filed a claim and get resolution?
