ON A COLD START, THE ENGINE SOUNDS ROUGH FOR ABOUT A SECOND OR TWO. GRINDING TYPE NOISE. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE NORMAL WARM-ENGINE START-UP SOUNDS. ALSO, THE ENGINE DOES NOT SOUND RIGHT FOR ABOUT THE FIRST MILE OR SO AFTER A COLD START, SORT OF A WHINING NOISE FROM THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE OF THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. CLEARLY AUDIBLE WHEN LIGHTLY REVVING BETWEEN 1500-2000 RPMS. ALTHOUGH TSB-004-13-A HAS NOT YET BEEN EXPANDED TO INCLUDE THE 2013 CAMRY, IT SOUNDS A LOT LIKE THAT EXACT ISSUE MAY BE AFFECTING THE 2013S. THIS 2013 WAS BUILT IN THE SAME PLANT AS THE 2010-12 CAMRYS THAT ARE PART OF THE TSB. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER TWICE AND WAS TOLD THAT 'THESE SOUNDS ARE WITHIN THE NORMAL RANGE OF NOISES AN ENGINE CAN MAKE'. I DISAGREE. THE VEHICLE NOW HAS 37K MILES ON IT, I AM HOPING IT WILL BE FIXED PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY (60K).

2/5/2015 - RIVERSIDE, CA
WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STOP THE VEHICLE WILL SOMETIMES MOVE ABOUT 10 FEET AND THEN HESITATE FOR ABOUT 1 TO 2 SECONDS. IT WILL THEN ACCELERATE NORMALLY. ONE TIME THE VEHICLE ACCELERATED TO ABOUT 20 MPH AND THEN THE ENGINE RPM RETURNED TO IDLE. THE ACCELERATOR WAS PUSHED TO THE FLOOR AND THE RPM REMAINED AT IDLE. THE ACCELERATOR WAS RELEASED AND PUSHED DOWN AGAIN. THE VEHICLE ACCELERATED NORMALLY. THIS HAPPENED ONLY ONE TIME. THE INTERMITTENT HESITATION IS VERY DANGEROUS WHEN TRYING TO CROSS A BUSY INTERSECTION WHEN THE CROSS TRAFFIC IS UNCONTROLLED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR THE PROBLEM. THE TECHNICIAN COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE CONDITION. THE U760E TORQUE CONVERTER SHUDDER RECALL UPGRADE WAS PERFORMED. THIS DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. THE SERVICE ADVISOR SAID THAT THE TECHNICIAN SAID THAT SOME TRANSMISSION HESITATION WAS NORMAL. THE SERVICE ADVISOR ALSO SAID THERE HAD BEEN OTHER COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS CONDITION. THERE ARE ALSO COMPLAINTS ON THE ONLINE AUTOMOBILE FORUMS. THIS CONDITION IS DANGEROUS AND NOT NORMAL
