A sales guy who had the same problem was told his tranny shift solenoid went bad. They have to order a new tranny from japan for him so it will take 3 weeks. Looks like a bad batch of trannys were produced w/ so many V6 cars already having issues.

Toyota Recalling Camry

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.
That was fast.

Assuming the problem is isolated to this 0.5%, the problem is contained, and does not recur, it will have nearly zero effect. You might see a slight glitch in Consumer Reports reliability surveys for the 07's. MY2000 Accord V6s also had a problem somewhat like this. Tranny clunking, esp in reverse big time, and usually early failure like before 2000 miles. It was a one time issue that was fixed and done with.

well not to diss or put more wood on the fire. About 2 months ago my friend'd fathers 2005 toyota Camry i4 LE with 10000 miles on it said goodbye to the first tranny. I hope that this is just a glitch for toyota.

Yes, I agree with you. That is the only reason I sold the damn thing, the J30A1 with 4speed crapomatic... went to #3 tranny, got rid of at 99500mi.

This thing sounds like a bad batch, not anything more, nothing to do with 1st year BS.

I dunno, have to ask my dad , he traded the Solara for the Accord with me b/c he can better benefit from Navi and the Accord's smoother DBW vs. Toyota's. So far the tranny is hella smooth, definitely not putting any stereo system/electrical drain on it.

Btw, if you need a rebuilt tranny from a good shop, I know one in the Etobicoke area who put one in our 1999 3.5L v6 Odyssey abt 2mths ago. Price is good and unlimited km + 1yr warranty.

This just shows you that no company is perfect. But Toyota has been very quick to recall and fix the problem. This little issue wouldn't stop me from considering a new Camry if I was shopping for a new car in the near future. But I still wouldn't by the first model of it (2007 model).

Honda's transmission problems isn't an isolated malfunctioning piece, it has to do with much of its major design.

This issue has nothing to do with where the car was assembled. It looks like the American Toyota assembly plant is the only one that got the shipment(s) of defective transmission shift solenoids.

they also didn't mention anything about the SE v6 models. only XLE and LE.. which clearly already states it's just a defect batch.

the avalon also has significant quality issues.

Quality glitches
Since the Avalon's 2005 redesign, Toyota has issued service bulletins to dealers on these topics

Bad U-joint welds

Faulty catalytic converters

Leak in oil-supply line for variable valve timing

Vehicle drifting



LOS ANGELES -- Alan Seider has owned 11 Toyotas since 1982, but his 2006 Avalon likely will be his last.

He says quality glitches have bedeviled his Toyota sedan, which he has driven less than 6,000 miles since he bought it last July. His dealer could not solve the car's problems. Toyota headquarters stonewalled his appeals, he says.

"There have been significant throttle control and transmission hesitation issues," says Seider, 45, a computer consultant from Roswell, Ga. "I've isolated 15 different rattles in the body work."

Seider is far from alone. Internet chat rooms such as Edmunds.com Town Hall are littered with complaints from Toyota loyalists about the redesigned Avalon, which went on sale in February 2005.

The Avalon's launch problems point to a larger issue. To meet demand, Toyota has added factories in North America and thousands of new employees. Executives are worried that Toyota's rapid growth may dilute its quality standards.

Toyota and Lexus divisions still exceed industry averages in various studies that measure quality. Toyota predicts that the Avalon will score well in J.D. Power and Associates' Initial Quality Study, to be released in June.

But the quality gap is closing. And Toyota recalls have spiked in the last two years.

Every production line produces its share of lemons. But Toyota already has issued a string of technical service bulletins to dealers to fix Avalons on the road. Changes are being made on the assembly line. Toyota representatives acknowledge there are some teething problems, but decline to call the Avalon a problem car.

The Avalon is the Toyota brand's most-expensive car, starting at $27,355 including destination charges. The redesigned 2005 model was embraced by consumers; Toyota sold 95,318 Avalons last year in the United States, up from 36,460 in 2004. Avalon sales peaked in 2000 at 104,078 units. It is assembled at Toyota's Georgetown, Ky., plant, alongside the Camry and Camry Solara.


First-year blues

It's a car-buying axiom that one should never buy a car in its first year of production, before the bugs are worked out. But in recent years Toyota and Honda largely disproved that old saw, delivering nearly bulletproof vehicles from Job 1.

Now the Avalon redesign is showing that even mighty Toyota can slip up.

Kevin Clingenpeel, a 37-year-old insurance litigator from Fort Mill, S.C., loved his Avalon for the first 2,000 miles. Then the transmission shifts became erratic, especially in cold weather. The engine developed a persistent knock, which could not be cured by changing grades of gasoline or by using a fuel-injector cleaner.

"I pulled up next to a Ford F-350, and I could hear my valve train clicking louder than his diesel," said Clingenpeel, whose Avalon is his family's third Toyota.

Clingenpeel says his dealer gave the car "a wink and a nod" when he brought it in three times for repairs. Clingenpeel then appealed to Toyota headquarters to send out a district service manager. Toyota refused. Now Clingenpeel is looking to sell the car.

"It's sad because there's a nice car hiding behind all this," Clingenpeel said. "But this is not up to snuff from what I would consider from Toyota."

I don't think Toyota will be doing that anytime soon. The IS350 doesn't even have a M/T option and it's much sportier than the Camry. The Camry and Solara had V6 + M/T options in the past, but were dropped due to poor sales.

You'd think with all of the technology loaded into the engine that emissions would be the last thing to be worried about . The IS350 is very fast as it is and Toyota/Lexus 6 cylinder A/T's are known to be rock solid, but I guess it's not enough for some owners .

When you say rock solid, do you mean much much much better than the ones on V6 Hondas ?
