2019 Toyota Camry SE 2.5L (A25A-FKS) 8-spd (UB80E)

I recently purchased a 2019 Toyota Camry SE with the 2.5L engine. I have noticed that when I go to accelerate from a rolling stop, or when passing someone, there is a 2-3 second delay before the vehicle responds. This seems to be a common problem after I googled it.

Does anyone know of a software update or a fix for this issue? It has to be in the software, but many forums I have read where people take it to the dealer and they are told nothing is wrong.

My wife's '16 does that too. I have gotten used to it. I'd be interested to see if there is a remedy.

Yes there is. See TSB 0152-19 software update

Hi Gary: Without a VIN and the current ECU calibration, you can't say that for sure. That bulletin will not be available if it does not apply to this vehicle. No bulletin = no calibration. Guido

Gary, thank you for the info. I found the TSB after doing a google search. It applies to ALL 2019 Camrys. I am going to take it to my local dealer and see what happens.

While I agree with what you said, no VIN/Calibration ID was supplied so I couldn't be 100 sure if it applies to this exact vehicle. In my post all I stated was that there is a TSB for that type vehicle for that type issue. It would be up to the tech working on it to be sure it applies to his/her vehicle

Hi Gary: My response wasn't meant for you as much as others who may not know this. To this day, the majority of people I run into think that they can just reprogram a Toyota like an older GM. Guido

Guido, This is an oddball TSB, it just states "All 2019 Toyota Camry vehicles, no vin breaks or engine sizes or other requirements. There is even one for the 2018 Camry. Toyota titles them "Shift Shock on Initial Startup or Reacceleration. 2018 Camry: T-SB-0330-17, issue date December 11, 2017 2019 Camry: T-SB-0152-19, issue date November 1, 2019 There are bulletins for Canadian vehicles…

I recently encountered a Toyota exhibiting somewhat similar symptoms​.​The problem was resolved with a change of ignition coils and plugs.

Closed with fix: I took my Camry to a local Toyota dealer and presented the TSB. They updated the PCM and the issue is fixed. It drives and responds normally now.
