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.

Obviously, this is a big problem with Camry's, I'm seeing other complaints for the same issue all over the internet. This needs to be addressed by Toyota, since the inability to stop your car in a normal amount of time could present some serious issues, not to mention lawsuits.

My car brake function went down quickly to almost none in one week. There was hissing sound on application of brake which increased with worsening function of brake. I was scared so took to dealership and I paid $ 1600. I think this has affected my brake pads and rotors too. Called Toyota 1-800-331-4331. Associate told me this problem not known to toyota and denied for any financial help. I did research and came across multiple complains. After research I called toyota again. I had other associate this time. I told him that his other associate to whom I talked to said me that problem not known to toyota and there are many complains I saw online. I also offered to provide a copy of these complains. He refused to take a copy of complains I offered and told me that toyota would go by it's own database and won't consider information from any other resource. I encourage to all who have similar problem to notify toyota by calling 1-800-331-4331. This will make toyota aware of problem and eventually pay toyota owner for any loss. This may also lead to correction of problem and prevent serious accident with Toyota Camry

When I press down my brakes they make a hissing noise.My car eventually stops but not immediately. My Check Engine light is also on. I took my car to Toyota dealer even though I bought it brand new and they both confirmed that it was my brake booster and that this should not be a problem with Toyota. I have had over the phone estimates for parts from $400 (used) 650 (off brand) or 1000 (toyota brand). Talk less of labor. RIDICULOUS!!!!!

I truly believe that this is a manufacturer's defect and should be covered undhttp://www.carcomplaints.com/addreport.shtml#er a recall.

Couple of weeks ago, the check engine light was on and I heard brake noise like leaking air. After a day or so, the brake could barely stop. I took it to the dealer, they said the brake booster needed to be replaced, and it cost me $1600.

My mechanics then told me to complain to corporate, I called them and they referred me back to Toyota dealer's Customer Relationship's manager or service manager, even so, I did open a case with the corporate. The dealership made a deal with me, they would pay for the part, which cost $900 and I would pay for the labor, I basically have no choice. From $1600 to $660, better than nothing. I took the offer, but I agree it is a manufacturer defect, it should be 100% covered. I have own 5 Camrys, I can tell you there won't be a sixth one.

I bought new 2007 with a desire it will not cost too much at least until 100,000 miles. But two major trouble made it close to nightmare to me. First problem CV boot was leaking eventually I got to change both axles when mileage was about 55,000 miles.

Now I got to change my break power booster as it was making hissing noise under application. The repair cost me $1,271 with 10% discount at dealer's place. Interestingly, per a outside mechanic shop the part cost about $600 for them from a Toyota dealer while dealer is charging about $950 for the part from their customer (like me).

I strongly believe these are manufacturing fault and Toyota should be liable for these at least up to 100,000 miles or 10 years.

I bought this car brand new from Toyota dealer, at 45000 miles the car started to give me problems when apply the brake, it did not full stop and sound like leaking air, I thought that the brake worn out so I came to dealer to purchase complete brake discs and pads cost $700. Brought them to a friend's shop to replace all of them, I found out my old pads only worn out 50% but the front discs are totally warped, rear discs are worn 75% so I went ahead to replace all. After that, the problem still existed and my friend told me the main problem is from brake booster. Now I am totally disappointed with Toyota because the cost to fix it about $1500. This is really painful. My next car won't be Toyota.

I'll replace both the front calipers, see if that solves the shaking steering wheel problem. I already know that any dealer will try to avoid the fact that their products or vehicles have anything to do with the issue. I know Toyota lost billion of dollar alone on the Camry recall. I think they fix the newest once. But for sure I'm not going for Toyota on the next purchase, Because there are many problems on my 2007 Camry not just the brake alone. The driver side sun visor is broken, the interior is falling apart, The suspension sucks ( the original) I changed mine to Eibach and KYB it's better. The back brakes changed twice included on one, the rotor, but the front never wore out. You know and I know that's not right.

For many years I continuously heard excellent reports about Toyota cars before I purchased a 2007 Certified Toyota Camry in 2009 from Toyota Waldorf, in fact I considered myself to be one of Toyota’s biggest fans from afar. My plan was to drive the Toyota for 2-3 years and then purchase my dream car, the Lexus RX 350…

In 2010, I found myself constantly defending Toyota during the media frizzy and the relentless attacks made by critics. I even brushed off the recalls in 2010 until I became one of the victims and nearly lost my life when all the oil drained out of my car in less than 1 minute while driving in NY.

Since 2010, in addition to the recall, my visor on the driver and passenger’s side has broken….. Secondly, in October 2011, I nearly lost my life again while driving my Camry- my brakes went completely out.

I took my car to the dealership and was told that the Power Brake Booster needed to be replaced… As of today, December 20, 2011, I still do not have this part. It has been on back order (not from Toyota Waldorf) since the end of October, 2011. Not only am I inconvenienced, but I’m paying on a car I cannot even drive or trade in for blue book value…

I’m at my wits in, it appears as though I was sold a certified lemon and my faith in Toyota is broken.. I have to wonder is my dream of getting a Lexus RX 350 truly shattered???

Camry LE

  • Automatic transmission

When I press down my brakes they make a hissing noise.My car eventually stops but not immediately. My Check Engine light is also on. I will be reporting that in my next post. The only reason that I'm posting it here is because that was the first indication that something was wrong with my car. It was only until after the indicator came on that I noticed the hissing noise. The hissing noise has been gradually increasing. I took my car to CarMax and Midas even though I bought it brand new and they both confirmed that it was my brake booster and that this should not be a problem with at Toyota. I have had over the phone estimates from $600 - $1500. RIDICULOUS!!!!!

I truly believe that this is a manufacturer's defect and should be covered under a recall. If anyone else is having a problem with this please post!!!! I would like to hear more.

Brakes seemed to not be working so well, then they started making a sound that was like leaking air, then my check engine light came on. I brought my into the mechanic this morning, he told me my brake booster needed to be replaced or repaired. Why with so few miles is anything like this even happening?!?!?! Lately, with all the issues Toyota has been having, I have become appalled at their standards and will never buy another Toyota again! I am going back to Ford! A truck I never had trouble with even with over 100,000 miles and 7 years including 3 years of driving 60 miles per day. Toyota has failed me!

Camry

The 2007 Toyota camry has 33500 miles and brake booster doesn't work anymore. The warning light is lit up. Took the car to the dealership and they diagnosed that the brake booster is not working ! The car does not come to full stop when brakes are applied. The brakes have to applied really hard for the car to stop. The problem sounds similar to the Oct 21st 2010 recall that is announced. Called the customer service and they refused to pay for the repair since the car is out of the 3 year warranty period. The cost of repair is 1500$ !! This is awful! It was a very bad decision to buy a Toyota

There are many more recalls to come from Toyota. Never ever buy a Toyota !
