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.

For the last year I have noticed the dashboard has been sticky. When the sun shines on it, there is a glare which makes it hard to see. Everything sticks to the dashboard. This is a problem and a hazard and we would like Toyota to provide an acceptable solution.

My 2007 Toyota Camry has the dashboard all melted. This causes a tremendous amount of glare while driving during the day and you cant see through the windshield. I've looked over the internet aswell as talked with friends and family and this is an ongoing problem with these Camry models. Looks like a manufacture defect that Toyota does not want to replace. Every year I contact them and its the same answer that it is not covered under warranty. Please help !!!

My 2007 Toyota Camry's dashboard is melting. It's like someone has poured honey or syrup all over it. I first noticed it this summer and it has progressively gotten worse. I have tried to clean it with windex and a paper towel or a dry cloth. It now has paper towel pieces stuck all over it and the dust is permanently on the dash because it won't wipe off. There is also a glare on the windshield and a horrible substance on the inside of the windshield that cannot be wiped off no matter how much you clean it, it just smears. This causes difficulties driving at night. God only knows what chemicals are being released inside the vehicle that we are all inhaling! I have taken my car to round rock Toyota in round rock, tx and they basically told me how awful it was but they couldn't/wouldn't help me unless I wanted to purchase a new dash board for my car. From my reading on the internet I have found that there are many people with this same problem and Toyota is doing absolutely nothing to make amends for the defective materials they have used in these vehicles. I cannot sell my car like this and I'm sure it will effect the value of my car should I ever try to replace it.

My dashboard is melting. It's become extremely sticky and shiny. I do not use any chemicals or other products on the dashboard.this seems to be a very well known problem with so many customers reporting the same problem and yet Toyota does not recall. The plastic is failing. It's dangerous because it's so terribly shiny.

The dashboard material has been melted and is now extremely shiny and sticky. It causes the sunlight to reflect back onto the windshield which makes visibility degraded. I would like to see a recall to replace the dashboard.

I purchased this 2007 Toyota Camry from carmax in July 2013. Following the purchase, I noticed the dashboard was sticky and thought maybe some type of detailing cleaner had been used on it. The dashboard is sticky because it is melting in the heat. The shiny, melting dashboard causes a glare on the front windshield affecting visibility.

My dashboard is sticky and melting. Nothing can be put on it. The windshield protector so it doesn't get real hot inside got stuck to dashboard and not big hole in the dashboard. When I am driving sometimes the glare is so striking that it gives you a blindspot. This is very dangerous and I would like to know if you all are going to replace it.

During July, 2013, I noticed that the dashboard on my Camry was sticky and looked grimy. I asked my husband if he could clean it for me. When we had the car serviced in August, 2013, we were given the telephone number for Toyota to report my problem. It was not until a road trip this past summer, that we noticed how extremely difficult it was to drive at night the distraction from oncoming headlights hitting our glossy dashboard. Was distracting and extremely dangerous. The glare of the dashboard on the front window from the sun during the day was as terrible. We could not see exit signs or traffic warning lights because of the constant glare and blinding reflection. After I saw a news investigation on nbc6 miami concerning my same problem, I realized that this situation is a growing concern for Toyota owners and should be by Toyota. My family has had Toyota since my mother's cressida in 1984. We have lived in miami since then and have always purchased Toyota; tercel, corolla-sr-5, 3 Celica, 3 corollas, etc. My 2007 Camry has a manufacturer's defect Toyota corporation has been using inferior materials it should always be liable for something that can cause serious consequences and injury we never had any such problem. I would like to become part of any class action concerning this situation.
