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.

I have a 2007 Japanese-made Camry. I bought at a premium (well above invoice and above msrp because servco Hawaii does not give discounts) thinking I was paying for a reliable and well-made vehicle. I have had other Toyota but none with as many problems as this vehicle. And, with all the news of accelerator problems, I would like my problems checked and not be charged for it. I do not like the idea of having to pay $103 (1hr labor) X 3 different accelerator issues + another $103 to see why there is the smell of gasoline coming from the A/C vent. 1. when stepping on the accelerator, I will get no response... I continue to depress the gas, still no response. Then finally, the car will thrust forward violently. This has been mentioned to Toyota Hawaii dealer several times saying it was normal for drive by wire vehicle and that it will take some getting used to. 2. when accelerating slowly, the car will rev high without the automatic transmission upshifting.. I have to depress the gas more and the car will rev even higher before upshifting. 3. on 2 different times, the car has revved and jumped forward while not in gear. The first time was at an intersection. I shifted into neutral with the P-brake on and it felt as if someone hit my car from the rear. The car jumped into the busy crosswalk about 2 feet until I hit the brake pedal and shifted it back into drive. Another time was at the drive-thru window in park. The car didn't move but jerked violently. Both were on flat surfaces. 4. when under heavy acceleration, the car sometimes give off the smell of gasoline. It is not exhaust fumes but smells of raw gasoline. A/C in recirculate mode. I also have been having numerous other quality problems with excessive rattling of trim and door ajar alarm going off for no reason.

We bought 2007 Camry in July of 2007. My wife drove it to work and got an accident on 12/5/07. When she exited highway, she used gas then used brake to reduce the speed. The brake did not work. The car sped out of control and hit the side of hill. The car was roll over to one side and totaled. My wife was badly injured and was sent to hospital emergency room. She got some cuts in her head by the broken window and she had to stay at home for about 2 weeks before going back to work.we believed something wrong with the car brake or gas pedal. And when the car hit the side of hill, none of car safety air bags came out. The car was totaled and paid by our insurance. But this accident gave her a long time fear and bad feeling when she passed that place. We hope we can join the Toyota class action lawsuit. Please give us some suggestions. Thanks!
