Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 012015

Camry LX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles


I was going through 7 qts of oil a day. That is absurd. I had the engine rebuilt, but it still leaked out of the head gasket. I am a poor college student, yet I had no choice but to pay over $5000 for a car I bought for $2000. Camrys are typically really good, but this one, with my luck, was awful.

Camry LE

I was told the oil pan had a leak and that oil was blowing out the top of the engine. Toyota service department fixed it by replacing the oil pan.
