Credit: TCC<p>Toyota Recalling Camry<p>The newest edition of the Toyota Camry is being recalled for a problem with the transmission. The problem, Toyota says, involved only a half-percent of Camrys built thus far for the 2007 model year. The new six-speed automatic transmission could lose second and sixth gear during operation. Toyota told Reuters the vehicle still will operate even if the gears are lost, and that the problem usually happens within the first 500 miles of use.<p><br>Even if it is only 0.5%, it's really not the way to start off.<br>

I think Toyota is in the lead in the most recalls of 2006. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Customer service is the way to start off.<br>Toyota is posting online at Edmunds to address anyone who may have issues with the 6-speed. Every company needs to do this.<p><A HREF="http://blogs.edmunds.com/Straightline/.ee90ff2" TARGET="_blank">http://blogs.edmunds.com/Straightline/.ee90ff2</A><p><A HREF="http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f0c20c4/24" TARGET="_blank">http://townhall-talk.edmunds.c...c4/24</A><p>The major complaints people have is when a company is irresponsive and secretive, not so much if there is a problem to begin with.<p>If you have this problem, Toyota pays for the car payments while your Camry is in service (which could be up to 3 weeks), a loaner car, plus a 7 year/100,000 miles extended Toyota warranty!<p>This is almost like how Lexus treated its customers when Lexus began in the US!<p>For all new Camrys coming out of the factory, the transmission build problem has been remedied.

In some sense, after reading a few pages of the Edmunds' forum, it seems as if the "Toyota representative" and/or Toyota desperately wanting to avoid the word recall <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif" BORDER="0"> In my opinion, recalls aren't exactly a bad thing.<p>I am pleased (and expected - nothing surprising) the way Toyota has handled such defect so far; in fact, Toyota prides itself on that. I know Toyota and several other automakers (flip through threads here) are very responsive to addresss problems and concerns from customers (but only if every automaker would respnd the way Toyota and other automakers do).<p>We'll have to wait-and-see if further problems will result from this issue, let's hope this is the end of such defect. As Cozz implied, there are a good amount of recalls from Toyota/Lexus so far this year (keep in mind last year - 2005 - , Toyota/Lexus had an unusual high number of recalls).

First the Tundra and now the reliability-champion Camry? I got one word to summarize this.<p>"Already"?

Better now then later... I'd rather get the bugs out early (too bad they couldn't have caught it before they went on sale)
