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.

On April 27, 2010, I was backing out of a parking space. I usually back out of a parking space very slowly so that I can stop at anytime. After I had cleared the parking space and before I could exchange gears, the car (2007 Toyota Camry) kept on reversing. I put my foot on the brake but the car did not stop. It stopped when it hit a van which was adjacent to a police car. Luckily the police officer witnessed the entire accident. When the police officer approached my car he stated that "I thought you were going to hit me." I replied by saying "my car would not stop; I could stop the car." I informed the police officer that when I put my foot on the brake, the car continued to accelerate. The police report indicates that there was a problem with the acceleration. This statement is also want the mechanic said when he put the car in reverse to work on the car.
