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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: An increasing number of Toyotas are experiencing excessive oil consumption and the 2007 Camry seems to be leading the charge.

Owners are reporting that their engines are deprived of oil halfway through their maintenance schedules and in some cases the damage is so bad that entirely new engines need to be installed, paid out of pocket. The issue may be a result of defective piston rings and is the possible target of a class-action lawsuit.

Toyota has issued a TSB for this problem, but maintains their stance that vehicles equipped with a 2AZ-FE engine are burning through a “normal” amount of oil.

I open my sunroof leaving before I pulled out of my garage. I stopped for a red light and made a turn. 5 to 10 seconds after I turned I heard a loud explosion that sounded like a gunshot. I checked my door windows and the appeared fine; I slightly closed my sunroof and saw that the glass was shattered in a million pieces. The gunshot sound was the sunroof exploding in my 2007 Toyota Camry. My car only has with 68,000 miles on it. Toyotas are made to be driven 300,000 miles. This explosion occurred while my sunroof was in open mode. I took my car to Toyota and was told that maybe a rock hit the sunroof. I told them that it wasnT possible since the sunroof was open when the explosion occurred. The explosion caused the glass to shatter. I called my insurance company was told that if it is determined that this explosion was a manufacturer's (Toyota) defect that Toyota was responsible for replacing the sunroof. I called Toyota and was told that if I didnT have an extended warranty that this item would not be covered. The dealer told me that they would replace the roof for $1080. I told them that this item should be working at the mileage that I have and that they needed to replace it. I also told them that I have owned 3 other cars with sunroofs and the mileage was way past my current mileage that I have never seen this type of problem. I called the 800 number and filed a complaint and they told me that they werenT going to pay for this item. I told them to file it as a complaint. I also told them that I was going to file a complaint on Toyota.

Camry

  • 61,000 miles
Driving down the interstate at about 65 mph. Sunroof exploded out. Glass went all over my husband, almost causing a wreck as he was in rush hour traffic. Took the Camry to dealership (after taking pics), they commented "oh, we've seen this before." Fixed the sunroof, and charged $1000. This is dangerous. Nothing hit the window, or it would have shattered in instead of exploding out. Maybe something to do with the pressure in the car.

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
I was driving on the interstate in my new 2007 Camry when the sunroof exploded. Glass poured into the car leaving a sizeable hole. We did not hear or see anything hit the roof before the explosion. The dealer will replace the roof for $1080. I have only had the car two weeks and it seems Toyota should cover the cost. Because it is not a warranty item, the dealer provided a phone number for the Toyota experience center for assistance. They gave me a reference number but told me to contact the dealer.
