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 live in Canada but I thought this was relative as I notice a recall on this particular car for this precise problem. I had a 2007 Toyota Camry hybrid was hit on Feb 12,2008, but a minivan that had lost control and come into our lane. My Toyota Camry was hit front offset, possibly two impacts from minivan as the front driver side door was crushed. The car was written off and the driver side air bag on the steering wheel was deployed and the knee air bag was deployed.,but eventhough my front driver door was crushed in and I could not open it myself and someone opened my vehicle from the outside, the side air bag was not deployed nor was the curtain shield air bag deployed. I suffered a mild concussion from the accident and am still receiving treatment to date. Thank you

There have been no major events yet. The problem is in the defect of the front side airbag cover falls while driving on the 07 Camry I have had for a year. It has been fixed 4 times and now they do not know what to do. I am concerned for a serious malfunction. I have contacted Toyota and there is no response. Please help me if you can, it may save some one else as well. It needs to be a serious recall!

My airbags on both sides continue to fall down out of the casing. I have reported this to Toyota corporate 5 times and it has been repaired 5 times. The problem still exits. I called Toyota again 2 weeks ago and they have not returned my call. This is an immediate danger to my family with these falling airbags.

Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I bought a 2007 Camry SE V6 and have had nothing but problems with it. Transmission slips, creaking dash and windshield, a pillar airbag cover replaced 3 times, center console stack does not line up, dash is not flush next to a & B pillars (haven't seen one yet that was), knocking noise in rear strut tower (fixed after two dealer visits, they added sound insulation), driver side armrest fabric peeling off (seen at first delivery of vehicle ), radio head unit freezes up randomly (dealer cannot fix because they cannot duplicate), steering is very loose and vehicle drifts on road (safety concern, dealer stated characteristic of tire), front grill loose on right side (dealer fixed) and seat plastic rail covers broken upon delivery (dealer fixed). Vehicle also idles rough in cold weather (dealer stated bad gas).two to three second delay in acceleration (dealer stated this is normal). Each dealer visit required me to leave the car once for ordering the part and a second time for installation. I have wasted way too much time at dealerships having my car repaired to ever consider buying another Toyota again. Over all I should have tested other cars before buying Toyota based on its reliability alone.
