 Description of the problemI have had multiple problems with my 2012 camry. Purchased it new and started having problems around 3,500 miles. First, noticed a mildew smell that they stated was from the ac which they fixed. Continued to have the odor and found out 15,000 miles later that there was a leak in the ac that was pressing on my airbags so the entire airbag system needed to be replaced. Had several electrical issues that resulted in every light and icon in my car flashing and beeping which started around 20,000 miles. Occasionally, the car would not turn on as a result of this electrical issue. Took it to the dealer multiple times and they said the battery was fine and they thought it was a 'ghost in the electrical system'. Then my ac blower went out around 40,000 and had to be replaced. Also, the driver side door would not unlock around 45,000 miles and was making a clicking noise. They said the actuator needed to be replaced. Once this was replaced, the passenger side door started making the same noise and would not unlock. They said i would have to replace this actuator as well. Overall, i am highly disappointed in this car since toyota is supposedly one of the best automotive companies around. I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone as i felt it was very unsafe due to leaking tubes/fluids that resulted in airbag problems and multiple electrical glitches that affected the car's ability to turn on/drive.
