toyota  camry   2005  Howard B. CROMWELL, CT  09/16/11  2.00 My wife loves the car, BUT: - At 20,000 miles Toyota REPLACED the engine under warranty. - Now, at 94,000 miles they say that the engine has to be REPLACED again. This time I'm supposed to pay $5-$6k for a used or rebuilt engine. - 2-3 years ago I had one instance of a runaway engine. Fortunately this occurred in a parking lot at low speed and I was able to stand on the break and turn off the engine. - A couple of times, under very slippery conditions and with brake pads very low, experienced EXTREME brake oscillations with ineffective braking,

Toyota  Camry   2005  Donald C. HAYMARKET, VA  04/08/09  4.00 So far so good, no major problems. Have had recurring issues with steering and turns. Two years ago when turning there is an occasional screeching sound, which was fixed by extensive lubrication. Recently started hearing a low frequency thud or thumping sound when turning. Understand there is a TSB on this issue and I'm trying to get a copy. 
Toyota  Camry   2005  Ed S. PITTSFIELD, MA  03/26/09  4.00 Good car. Second Camry we've owned. I have 32000 miles on the car, but it's out of warranty and the steering is giving me a problem. At slower speeds the wheel shakes back and forth like the wheels are out of balance. There's also a faint click in the column when I accelerate into a turn.

Toyota  Camry   2005  Betty K. OZARK, MO  02/10/09  3.00 We have been very pleased with our Toyota Camery. However we had been experiencing a noise in the steering. When we would go over rough surfaces or turn the wheels it was like something was loose in the steering. This summer is was bad but when the cold weather hit is seemed to go away. We are now facing a $420 bill to have the Steering Shaft replaced. Per our Dealer we were told Toyota notified them that the grease used at the Manufacturing Plant was not suffiicent and would need to be replaced but they would not help with the correction. We as consumers were not notified therefore we are now replacing the part. I complainted to Toyota and they really didn't acknowledge any problems and therefore would not help us!

Toyota  Camry   2005  Dennis D. KINGSPORT, TN  09/30/08  3.00 So far been O.K. The clunking in the steering is a bad steering shaft there's a TSB on it. Clunking in front end is sway link kits. Do not buy Toyota replacements. Buy Moog brand you can grease them much superior product.54k

Toyota  Camry   2005  Arthur L. SALINAS, CA  06/25/07  1.00 2005-06 50%Toyota Camry 4cylinder models!!!!! POWER TRAIN Complaint (Your Chance to Speak UP!!) Annoying Hydraulic Valve Train Tapping, Knock Ticking noise at 900 RPM or Idle Speed when Hood up all lights Radio AC off. Dealer refuses to Recall this defective motor due to not enough complaints reported. Same vehicle seems to produce a Transaxle Thump or Clunking Noise when backing up in a turn and proceeding forward at 2-5 mile MPH! Both front door rubber seals seem to shrink after being in the Hot sun 2-3 months causing air noise. Jamming a dollar bill between Seal & door or closed door all the way around can define the Air leak area, By pulling the dollar bill through easily indicates the seal flaw! I am fighting The dealer in court by my self 5 weeks from now! Am asking toyota Owners to here my call for your help! Video tape your car if you have this most Likely problem, if you can transfer it to DVD as I have done that would be Great. Mail your video's before the 1st of September,2008 to C/O Noelle Visintainer Case ID: Luna vs. Toyota Motor 55 Public Square, Suite 650 Cleveland, OH 44113 I was an auto technician for a good part of my life so I Know right from wrong the dealer will kill me in court with out Your help! The Dealers favorite Responses= (Cannot duplicate customers complaints) and ignore you hoping you will Go away, and many of you have. Join me! not much time left. I suspect low oil pressure or flaw in engine design and Transmission Internal flawed bearings caused by bad quality metal composition neglect. These are not acceptable new car noises and surely NOT normal! Thank You! Art USARMY VET-72-75
