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.

  • Automatic transmission

On Oct 13,2007 my 4yr old daughter and I were involved in a head on collision at less than 10M/H and all three airbags in my 2007 red Camry SC deployed and the knee airbag gave my right lower leg a bad blood clot where I had to miss work from over a month. I was not aware of any airbag recalls till after the crash and I had purchased to 2007 Camry. I was only notified of the floormat recall. I was highly upset especially since I work for the Japanese automaker. I can tell you safety and defects are not a high priority at Toyota in Kentucky there are several unsafe things going on. Quantity is over quality.

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,550 miles
My 2007 Camry SE was T-boned on the driver side by a 2006 Saab. The Saab's airbags went off and the car was considered totalled. The point of impact was the front end of the Saab into the drivers side door - estimated speed was 30mph. No airbags went off in the 2007 Camry! no indicators we lit on the dash. The car had 5500 miles on it. The car was repaired and not totaled because the airbags did not go off. Total repairs on this car are currently around $14,000
