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. 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.

The sun visor hangs down obstructing the driver's view through the front windshield, naturally, creating a hazard. The item has been replaced twice prior to now (5/9/09 & 6/24/2010) for the same complaint.

Driver side visor replaced last year (2011) due to same issue: Visor directly impacted driver's view. Sun visor on passenger side now drooping after shifting position to put sun shade in place. Exact same problem. Droop getting worse; visor does not stay in position and impedes driver's peripheral view.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 42,196 miles
The driver's side sun visor broke. The arm that goes into the sun visor came out of the sun visor. It seems that it broke the plastic inside the visor that holds it in place. This caused the visor to keep falling and not stay in place. It had a good chance of creating a hazard so I completely removed the visor. The tab on the bar that allows the visor to snap into place has become very stiff to where it is very difficult to rotate around. The stiffness of the arm seems to be what probably broke the plastic.

While driving, the sun visor fell to the down position and remained in that position, which completely blocked the driver's vision of the road and traffic. The visor would not remain in the up position.

The visor mirror dropped down and will not stay up. This blocks my visibility by 80% and it will not pass inspection. This is a danger because I cannot see at my full potential.

Sun visor was fine, and not experiencing any problems. While driving in moderate traffic the sun visor just flopped down obscuring my vision. It would not stay back up. I had to hold it up with one hand and drive with the other until I got home. It is now taped onto my sunroof with duct tape. Not good at all!

Camry 4-cyl

  • 121,500 miles
The sun visor on the driver side won't stay up if flops down and is difficult to see to drive. It flopped while I was driving and I had to slow down push it to side ways and continue driving and later need to remove it completely to continue driving. The piece that goes into the sunvisor itself that holds the visor up is broken. It looks to have come out of its "slot". the metal bracket within visor broke the plastic slot that holds the bracket.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 58,500 miles
The driver side sun visor broke. The visor won't stay up. It flops down and is difficult to see when driving. E.g. the upper half of my visibility is gone. It can't be moved to the side either, as it is broken at the top. After 5 days of driving with the broken sun visor, I almost hit a pedestrian today due to the limited visibility. Toyota dealer charges $160 total to replace it. I take care of my car well. I read complaints on internet that there are many other Camry owners have the same issue. It's highly likely that this is a defect. Toyota dealer charges $160 total to replace it.
