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.

2007 Toyota Camry. Consumer writes in regards to instrument panel and ABS system computer problems. The consumer stated the speedometer went to zero, then went back to normal speed for a minute more, and then went back to zero for several minutes. The temperature gauge went to zero, then registered current engine temperature, and went to zero again for several minutes. The next morning, cd player stopped working and issues with the speedometer and engine temperature resumed again. The vehicle was inspected at the dealer, where it was determined the ABS computer was no longer working and thus could no longer communicate with the other 4 computers in the vehicle. The dealer informed the consumer it would cost $2,400 plus labor.

The bluish greenish and grey lighting on the 2007 Camry radio was so bright that it was distracting at night. It I wasso bright that the people in the front seat were illuminated by it, and had to work very hard to scan outside the car since it completely ruined night vision. There was a dimmer setting, but it was tied to the dashboard lights. When dimming the radio one lost the ability to read the gauges. I wasvery concerned that this was a big safety issue. We called the local dealer and their service department as well as Toyota's customer care center. Despite the acknowledgement from the representative with her own Camry that it was a very bright light. Toyota will not work with us to change it in anyway, stating that it was a design issue without enough complains. They were not interested in seeking ways to address the issue.

Blinding lights on radio in dash. Lights on the radio for the 2007 Camry are so blinding at night that it makes driving at night a safety hazard. You can dim the radio lights only so far and then the rest of the instrument lights go out but yet the radio lights only dim to a point. This is also a dangerous situation.
