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.

My driver side visor is down and won't stay up and blocking my view. It's annoying to drive with it to my left side. I called and they said my VIN was outside the warranty/recall. So I'm punished because a recall item didn't break when the recall was issued. I think if there's a recall it should be for the life of the car. I should not have to pay for something that was once part of a recall.

Both my sun visors have broke to the point they are becoming a safety issue. They now dangle and will not stay up. Im reading this has become a huge issue for many Toyota Camry owners. I can understand if there was a lot of wear and tear on them however I know there is not and should not be breaking this quickly.

The visor began falling while driving on the highway. I tried to put it back up but it was sagging and eventually popped causing to stay down unless I forcibly push it back up. It is a distraction and now cannot go back up with extreme force (which is causing the lining to come apart).

The sunroof in my daughter's 2007 Toyota Camry exploded. While she was driving, she heard what she described as a "gun shot sound". after noticing small shards of glass in the seat, she pulled over to the side of the road. After exiting the car, she saw that the sunroof had exploded! her mother and I left work to meet here and I could tell instantly that it exploded from the inside, out! luckily, my daughter was ok and able to pull over to the side of the road safely.

Own a 2007 Toyota Camry which was purchased in 2009. Took into my dealership to have power window master switch recall. Also inquired about my broken driver side visor. Was told that visor was not a recall and only covered as an extended service for 7 years from date of first use; therefore not covered. Visor will fall down while driving, obstructing view and will not stay attached with clip. This problem did not occur until recently but Toyota will not replace it, as it is outside the 7 years from date of first use. I called Toyota and asked why the visor was not replaced prior to my purchase. They indicated that if it was not showing signs of problems, they did not replace them. This is very dangerous to have a visor "fall" during driving and obstructing your vision.

The dashboard of the Camry becomes tacky and very shiny due to deteriation from sunlight. This shiny finish causes dangerous glare against the windshield while driving. The tackiness prevents the dashboard from being cleaned properly to prevent reflections as well.

I initially began noticing that when the ac does not blow cold air when turned on that all of the gauges on my dashboard stop working including, speedometer dropping to 0 while I am driving so that I do not know at what speed I am driving, my gas gauge inexplicably drops to empty, lights on the dashboard stop working and my dashboard goes dark, RPM gauge flickers wildly, brake & ABS lights do not go off, and occasionally the car stops but with hesitation when braking, along with interior fogging of all windows when it rains (sometimes defroster/fans work to defog windows but sometimes it does not causing my visibility while driving to be substantially and dangerously reduced). During some online research, I believed that the issues might be related to an earlier recall so I called the Toyota corporate office and they indicated that it may be related but to take the car to my local Toyota dealership to confirm. I took the car to Toyota of hollywood and the manager stated that it was not related to the recall and that the main computer was malfunctioning and causing the subcomputers to also malfunction and estimated a repair price of $2500. While I was doing my online research, it appears that many 2007 Camry are having the same exact issues I am having and in addition, the Toyota Camry hybrids had been recalled for the same issues as well. I do not believe I should incur the expense of repairs for issues that seem to be related to a manufacturers defect.

I had to select visibility/wiper because it was the nearest answer to my concern. The driver side sun visor just flops down and won't stay up when not makes it difficult to see the road when it settles to odd obstructive positions by itself.
