Re: Problem filling up at gas station

The Camry has some kind of pressurized vapour control system. This is the purpose of the electric refuel button, it's supposed to release the control to allow for refueling. The manual warns if you...

Re: Toyota camry hybrid 2012 problem ?

Gee, they sure fancied up the dash indicators compared with my 2007, but its not totally different. After over 6 yrs of experience with the 2007, I'd have to say that what you experience doesn't look...

Re: TCH backseat a/c - how does it work?

Yep, the 2007s have this bad behavior, the rear vents blowing hot air inappropriately for some situations. If you feel so inclined, search back to some postings from 2006 and you'll find some...

Re: How Long Have Your Brakes Lasted?

Also had a rear pad start dragging on the rotor at about 35K miles which needed service. At 65K miles now with no other work done...

Re: Bubbling / Blistering on Alloy Rims

My 2004 Sienna has the same problem, I run the same rims all year long. I run steel rims thru the winter on my 2007 Camry, no problems so far on the alloy rims...

Re: Happy 5th Birthday

Yea, I'm expecting it to be a 5 seater, which is fine for me. I don't carry more than 5 people that often, but I do like the cargo space. I have never been concerned about the smaller trunk in the...

Happy 5th Birthday

My TCH is 5 yrs old this month. Just sending it some birthday greetings :present:

If I recall, it was within the first 3000 units built back in 2006. Other than regular maintenance and a bit of...

Sonata Hybrid vs TCH Commentary

I just happened to finish reading a fairly detailed press release (admittedly a few months old) on the 2011 Sonata Hybrid. From the PR it seems they definitely want to outshine the TCH (and...

Re: TCH Top EV speed

The metric TCH speedos have tended to be set more accurately, and since you quote km/h I assume you have a metric speedo, so you will see about 67kph as your max EV speed.

Re: Michelin Primacy Tire Upgrade

I had Goodyear TripleTreds on another car, which have somewhat similar tread pattern as the HydroEdge. They were great wet weather tires, but they were rougher and noiser until they were well worn...

Re: Michelin Primacy Tire Upgrade

It's Interest enough, in the Primacy MXV4 Tire, out of the 40 or 50 different sizes Michelin makes for this tire, only 3 of the sizes are "GreenX" tires, and maybe not so coincidentally one of those...

Re: Tire speed rating T vs. V and brands

My opinion, I think the whole speed rating thing is 80% smoke and mirrors, and 20% fact. The ratings are governed by basic tests that last only a few minutes at the speed being rated, and are self...

Re: TCH Aftermarket FE Parts?

I have an 04 Sienna too. I will agree with you that it is possible to make that thing get a big improvement in a specific set of conditions. When I first got my Camry I used to work hard at getting...

Re: SSC 90L Recall work on 09 Camry Hybrid

Just had my car in today, the service guy brought up the recall and when I told them I didn't want the gas pedal hack done, he just stamped the form with the waiver, had me sign it, and that was...

Re: Mechanical problems & need for extended warranty

My car just passed it's 4th year in service, but not really high mileage (75,000km or a little less than 50,000 miles). Only 1 "repair" required, one of the rear brake pads got a bit stuck and...

Re: TCH Aftermarket FE Parts?

Some good info already here, and I'll add some comments based on my over 4 yrs of driving the TCH. Relatively minor changes in driving style can make big, big differences. Normal cars, if you try to...

Re: The First Plug-in Camry Hybrid Conversion

I assume from your description then, that there were no changes to the standard computer control, and that from the TCH viewpoint, all it sees is it's own battery pack that tends to always be near...

Re: ATF changing

See the attached pic for location of filler hole to check level. This is really not meant for casual inspection by everyday driver. There is no dipstick like a car with a normal automatic...

Re: SSC 90L Recall work on 09 Camry Hybrid

Not sure how the US version of the recall is worded, but the Canadian version specifically states that the initial work will involve modification of the pedal and floor area only. It says that the...

Re: Does your TCH lurch forward when you brake?

From the description I've heard from news reports apparently quoting Toyota, the problems sounds somewhat familiar, although to what extent, I'm not sure. When braking on poor road conditions when...

Re: Check VSC System

Re: Another recall - stick accelerators

That is the original "floor mat" recall. Just got mine last week too. They want to reshape the pedal and floor area. I'm kind of reluctant to have this part done, sounds like cut the bottom of your...
