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.

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.

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.

The driver side visor is defective in my opinion which is preventing me to properly see the road. This part cannot rest on the roof but rather it droops down in a slanted angel. The rear doom light is falling apart exposing wirings in the passenger compartment.
