All-New 2012 + Toyota Camry



  • In fact, the 2012 Toyota Camry for the Canadian market is NOT equipped with TPMS. That from Toyota Canada Inc., sent to me on November 20, 2012.

  • I had the same whistle noise on a 2012 Camry LE. It was coming from the outside mirror. I put a piece of duct tape over the horizontal seam that allows the mirror to fold in and it was gone. Not too elegant but for a rental it works, the whistle was driving me crazy on the interstate. Would start about 65 MPH

    Bad design by Toyota that should have been caught and resolved during development.
  • Hello all,

    I live in NJ and I want to buy a new 2012 Camry SE. I want to pay $23,000 out the door and do not have a trade in vehicle. Am I asking for to little or to much? Can somebody help me with this.

    Thanks in advance!

  • So six months and 5,000 miles later here is my experience.

    First, I wish I had delayed my purchase until the new Accord appeared. I don't know if I would have chosen it over the SE, but I would have liked to done the compare. I have no other regrets, though, regarding the SE versus the Altima, the Sonata, or any clunker from Detroit.

    My mileage has dipped into the high 20s from the low 30s. I attribute that to oxygenated gas and running the compressor often to defog.

    Performance is still excellent. The Bridgestone Turanzas are still not my favorite tires, especially in the wet. SiriusXM is a great upgrade and I wish I had the back-up camera.

    One feature that is missing relates to the intermittent wipers. My old Accord would slow the wipe cycle down when the car was stopped and immediately start it when you took your foot off the brake. A simple feature that every car should have.

    I am surprised Toyota still does not offer body side moldings. I will go to the aftermarket in the spring.

    All in all, a happy customer.
  • Our 2012 SE will be 1 year on Dec. 31, we have almost 18,000 miles on ti. Very good car, got what I expected for the price. Gas mileage is very good. Over 24 around town. Just got back from a round trip to Orlando (approx 600 miles in total), gas was 34.5

    Has you ever found out what is the problem? I just bought brand new 5 miles SE and got the same noise. Anybody else has the same problem??
  • Have you fixed this problem? If so, what have you done? This is driving me insane...

    "Performance is still excellent. The Bridgestone Turanzas are still not my favorite tires, especially in the wet."

    I wish you luck with the Turanzas. I have a set on an accord. They are very quiet, very smooth, and handle very well in any condition. I have rotated them every 5k miles and always maintained the pressure. These 70k mile tires are now shot at 45k miles - down to the wear bars. The performance has been great, but they did not approach the advertised life expectancy.
  • Forget the 10,000 mile oil change interval. I had my wife take ours in at 8,000 miles for a free oil change (2 years maintenance included in the purchase) and they sent her away & said to come back at 10,000 miles. At 9,650 miles we had to go on a long trip and couldn't get an appointment so I changed it myself - the oil was BLACK! Next time I will insist on a change at 7,500 miles.

    I have a 2012 Camery that does the deceleration and has had two acelerations incidents. Has been a full day at Round Rock Toyota and they find nothing. a friend with an Avalon had this happen to her car some years ago and a Toyota shop person fixed it. He is still there and told me he couldn't fix my Toyota only te Avalon. I have gone to the Lemon Law on al of this, They also tod me the phone and entertainment system was hands free and it it not. I have a paper from them with a statement not made by me. It is scary to drive in heave traffic. It cannot be made to decellerate on command.
  • My2012 Camry has the same problems.I have also had problems with my fuel pump running with the car turned off in my garage

    Our 2012 XLE I4 was one year old on 3-14-13 at 14,000 miles. All is well, no reliability problems at all. It's only seen about 2000 miles of driving the past 5 months compared to 11000 the first 7 months: we flew out of town for all of January & the past 2 months have had a "real MN winter" using our Jeep 80% of the time. I expect we'll start driving the Camry 90% now that temps are forecast to be warming and roads hopefully stay ice/snow free. MPH the past 6000 miles of mixed driving, mostly winter warmups & city the past 2000 miles = 30.1 on the dash. The Michelin Primacy MXV4s did well in a couple inches of snow & snow packed ice on our rural road but the Jeep saw any heavy snow drives. I expect we'll see more miles driven during the second year mainly since we plan to drive the Camry (vs fly) down south next winter adding at least 4000 more miles.

    Take a look in the owner's manual. After I think 6 hours, you will hear a noise, kind of like a small electric motor running, that lasts about one minute. It is the car doing a check of the fuel system. The owner's manual tells you this.

    Have Camry SE 2012 and it has the same problem. It is still under warranty and I have a dealer appointment tomorrow. I'll let you know what will happen. Hopefully someone at Toyota is looking at these posts and starts to act accordingly. There well popular Deming model (plan do check act).
    Will see

    ours does it to we have reported it one time they said no problem. The bad part is you never know if its going to go or stop.

    Check your air box, might have a mouse nest, very common! Winter mpg highway should be 30 mpg even driving fairly agressive!
  • We just purchased a 2012 Toyota Camry on 10/13/13 and I have had the same no response from the accelerator when the outside temp is 52 degrees or colder and the first start of the morning. It has happened 4 times. I am driving and try to accelerate and no response. Very frustrating. Toyota has not been able to duplicate the problem at the dealership. It is not throwing a code so they say there is no problem. They told me to take a video of the experience next time it happens. What my word does not mean any thing?

    Any ideas how to resolve this issue?

    "or any clunker from Detroit"
    What is the safety rating on your Camry? I think your family would be much safer in a Detroit clunker.
