Complete List of Toyota Camry Recalls 2002-2011

I have complied a complete recall list of the Toyota Camry, dating back to ten years ago. If you see your vehicle on here, and are unaware of whether or not the recall has been addressed and resolved, please contact your local Toyota dealer. There was a recall on the 2002 Toyota Camry that came with the Continental tires that were installed at the Jacksonville, Florida port while being upgraded to aluminum wheels, but if you’re still rolling around on those OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires, you should probably look into replacing those.

Without further ado, here is the complete list of Toyota Camry Recalls:

2002 Camry w/3-spoke steering wheel: During airbag deployment, it is possible that the bottom portion of the airbag cover may strike the driver causing personal injury. Dealers will replace the driver’s-side airbag module.

2002-04 Camry w/curtain shield airbags: One or both of the curtain airbags may be twisted near the inflator and may not deploy rapidly enough.

2004-05 Camry w/front passenger power seat: When installing certain rear-facing infant seat bases onto seat with excessively high belt tension, buckle status switch could become unseated and system might not suppress deployment of the front airbag.

2004-05 Camry w/1MZ-FE or 3MZ-FE engine: The amount of adhesive that was applied between the outer ring and the torsional rubber damper (inner ring) in the crankshaft pulley may have not been enough. As a result, the outer ring may become misaligned and not properly rotate with the inner ring, triggering the battery discharge illumination light, and/or cause noise. Also, the belt for the steering pump may come loose, causing a loss of power steering and the inability to properly control the vehicle, especially at a low rate of speed.

2004-06 Camry: Some air bag inflators were produced with an insufficient amount of the heating agents. In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. Dealers will replace the specific SRS air bag.

2006 Camry: Tire information sticker gives incorrect spare tire size. Correct information and instructions are distributed.

2007 Camry: Some inflators for side, curtain and knee airbag assemblies may lack sufficient heating agent for proper airbag deployment.

2007-10 Camry: Improperly-secured optional-accessory floor mat could cause accelerator pedal to become stuck, temporarily, in partially depressed position.

2007-10 Camry: Due to the manner in which the friction lever interacts with the sliding surface of the accelerator pedal inside the pedal sensor assembly, the accelerator pedal may become hard to depress, slow to return to idle, or, in the worst case, mechanically stuck in a partially depressed position, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal, which will allow the pedal to operate smoothly.

2009 Camry: Improperly installed stop lamp switch. Replacement parts were shipped to dealers.

2010 Camry: The length of the power steering pressure hose on vehicles equipped with the 4-cylinder (2AR-FE) engine may be insufficient, such that the gap between the crimp on the pressure hose and the brake tube for the left rear brake may be insufficient. Under these circumstances the brake tube may interfere with the crimp and may wear and then perforate. A brake tube perforation may result in brake fluid leakage, impacting brake performance and increasing the risk of a crash. Toyota will notify owners and, if necessary, dealers will replace or adjust the brake tube free of charge.

2010-11 Camry: Tires that were installed from the manufacturer without the requisite load carrying capacity modification labels. Customers with the affected tires can have the dealer install the label free of charge.
