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.

Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
On 08/05/2006 I was driving my new 2007 Toyota Camry on the freeway at 3:00 am then my car dropped to the ground I could see the tire was passing us. Slowly I moved the car to the emergency lane. After checking I saw the rear left tire had broken from the axle. Toyota does not cover. They are playing with me saying some body will come after two weeks to inspect my car, then they change within one month. I do not know what to do. I am sure that is manufacturer's defect and they have to be very serious. I and my family were lucky that happened at night when no car was behind us, otherwise they could have been killed. Now I do not know what to do.
