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.

Airbag indicator light came on for apparently no reason, took car in for service and was told it was not an issue with Toyota, I had to pay to get part replaced, after almost $400 repair cost, got vehicle back and running. This issue should not be put on the back of consumers as these are safety parts that should last much longer that average parts of the cars.

At 59,000 miles, the check vs system light came on, as well as check engine light. I took the car to the Toyota dealer. At the time, I still had the extended warranty. They replaced "bank 2" ignition coil and charged me $100 deductible. At 70,528 miles the exact same thing happened. Check vsc system and check engine light came on. At the time, still under extended warranty. It was diagnosed with bad # 6 coil. They charged me the $100 deductible. At 90,000 miles (now) the exact same symptoms. I am assuming it is another bad ignition coil. There should be a recall on the 2007 Camry's ignition coils. I cannot afford to keep replacing ignition coils by a Toyota dealership, especially now that my car is not under the extended warranty. I also had Toyota replace clips on the air bag cover on passenger side in 2008. The part still sags. It is defective. It is in the Toyota dealership computer system that I brought it in at least twice for the sagging air bag cover. The new clips did not fix it.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and the dashboard is melting. The dashboard towards the windshield is always in a liquid state and the rest of the dashboard is soft. In the sunshine and at night under street lights the dashboard reflects a glare onto the windshield that impairs the drivers entire vision of the road. Also on the passenger side of the dashboard the outline of the airbag compartment can be seen. I believe the glare on the windshield is a hazard and due to the current condition of the dashboard the passenger airbag may fail to deploy when needed. The dashboard has not been treated with chemicals that may have caused this problem. It has always been cleaned with a wet wash cloth.

I rear-ended another vehicle traveling at no less than 35mph. The impact was severe enough that my insurance company has indicated that the car will probably be deemed totaled. My airbags failed to deploy and I sustained soft tissue injuries to my neck and shoulders. I reiterate that no airbag in my vehicle deployed, in spite of the speed and severity of the crash.

When driving on the no 1 lane (by the carpool lane), an SUV crossed the double yellow lines and rear ended my left side at approximate 40mph. My passengers were shaken up while I was taken to the er. I did noticed that my airbags did not deploy. After the accident I did some searching and came to find out that airbags for this particular model do not deploy!!! not to mentioned that prior to this finding, I had taken my car back to the dealer for an accelerator issue. Also pending is the sun visor recall as well.

I got a case number from Toyota, Toyota told me that the only way my air bag will deploy is that the motor would have to be in the car dash board to protect the driver. So she knows that the car air bag was working properly.

While driving 2007 Toyota Camry, the car was pulling to the left. I tried to control the car. The steering wheel locked up, the car went out of control. Spinning and hitting the guard rail twice. The air bag didnt deployed, and the seat belt didnt hold or lock me into place while it was on. When the car came to a complete stop I turn the vehicle around from the on coming traffic, the brakes was giving out and the car was still steering to the left. I ended up in a ditch on the guard rail.

My sister whole family was involved in major accident was hit by 16 wheeler truck, last July 30,2011, driving 2008 Camry SE airbag did not deploy. Car was first hit between driver and passenger side, with speed around 65 mph then drug by the truck for few seconds, the car flip one side did not roll over because thanks god it something to prevent from rolling over. And thanks god nothing happen to the whole family (4). It happened around 11 pm and good thing they are all awake when it happened. My nephew even saw the truck when it is about to hit them.. to much light and really close... then it hits them. But the big question seeing the condition of the car none of the airbag deploy. It would have been prevented some of there bruises.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry lxe. A driver decided to move into my lane from the left, to avoid a serious collision I had to swerve to the right and hit the brakes. My anti-lock brakes locked and I had no control over the car as we skidded across four lanes and hit a concrete wall. The air bags did not deploy and the seat belts (which were in use) did not lock us in. My wife hit the inside ceiling and the right window of the front door. I tried to find an attorney to go after Toyota but could not find one who had the guts to stand up to Toyota. There was over $14,500 in repairs and as of today they are still putting the car back together again.

I owned a 2007 Camry le. On 3/05/11 my brakes failed while on the highway. I careened across the highway and then the car started flipping. The car flipped at least 3 times before hitting an exit sign. The exit sign then pierced the roof of the car and landed between my legs. Thank god I wasn't seriously hurt. But through all the flipping across the concrete, my airbags did not deploy. My complaint is brake failure and lack of airbag deployment.
