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.

At about this date the left side of the dashboard cover started to get real sticky, like glue was poured on it, and I can't get rid of it. On bright sunny days spots appear on the windshield making it hard to see ahead at times. I need to know why Toyota won't fix this. It's not common for this to happen and I don't feel I should have to pay to have this fixed as I have found others with the same problem.

The dashboard of my vehicle has become very sticky and shiny causing a visibility hazard due to the reflection on the windshield. The dealer advised that the only "remedy" is to replace the dashboard since I am unable to even touch the surface to possibly wipe off the shine. Toyota (all vehicle manufacturers for the matter) should be charged with the responsibility of installing materials that do not become a hazard to drivers over time.

Currently, I own two Toyota and in the past was a loyal customer. I was driving down the road in my 2007 Camry in January and suddenly my sun visor dropped down temporarily blinding me. I tried to get it to go back up, but it kept dropping down while I was in traffic. I had to drive home with one hand holding the visor and the other on the steering wheel. Clearly, as this was a mass produced vehicle, I could not have been the only person with this issue. So, I called the new Toyota of clermont dealership just a few blocks from my home. I asked for the service department. They asked for my VIN number and then informed me that there were two recalls, but nothing that covered the broken visor. I was very surprised as the visor was far more dangerous than either of the other issues. On Friday 2/28/14, I found online that there were a ton of other complaints about the sun visor and that there was a "warranty extension" for 2007 Camry. I took my Camry over to the dealership and was informed by david the service manager that I had missed the "warranty extension" by two weeks. When I told them that they had misled me by telling me that the visor was not covered weeks ago, they informed me that the service receptionist was not trained on warranty extensions, only on recalls. I called the 800-gotoyota line and received no support. First of all Toyota should have made this a recall because it is definitely a passenger safety issue. It literally renders the vehicle undriveable. They used deception in making it a warranty extension. Is this how they maintain a high rating for quality. Is this how the limit the cost of recalls? information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
