Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
do you mean when you are going downhill the car picks up speed?
what has the service manager told you at the dealer?
did anyone roadtest the car with you?
ok. when you set the cruise control and are on a flat road the cruise control will maintain the set speed by opening and closing the throttle to maintain the proper speed.when you are going downhill and speed increases all the cruise control can do is close the throttle,if thehill is steep where the car picks up speed the cruise control does not have the ability to apply the cars brakes or downshift the transmission into a lower gear,at that point you would cancel the cruise by hitting the brake pedal and then if necessary down shift to a lower gear. below is copied out of the owners manual.if you have further questions on this let me know
n Situations unsuitable for cruise control

Doing so may result in control of the vehicle being lost and could cause an
accident resulting in death or serious injury.
l In heavy traffic
l On roads with sharp bends

our 2010 toyota camry le cruise control does not always hold the set speed when it goes down hill. What is the problem and how do we address this situation?
this is your post correct? now are you saying this happens without the crusie control on?
now are you saying this happens without the crusie control on?
do you want me to put in a refund request for you?
ok. thank you.
there will be an up coming 2 part recall on your vehicle for the gas pedal getting caught on the floor mat and also a possible brake override system being installed on the camrys as part of this recall. i havent seen any info from toyota as of yet,you can google gas pedal sticking to read info about the recall,i dont think this is what youre describing but maybe worth reading. there hasnt been any reports of the rpms rising or the engine revving caused by the electronic throttle control malfunction according to toyota.
are you driving about the same speed when this happens? if so what is the speed.
or can this occur at all speeds?
