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.

Camry

  • 94,000 miles

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the air bag warning indicator illuminated. Also, when the horn was depressed, it failed to activate. The dealer stated that the spiral cable in the steering column needed to be replaced. The technician explained that the spiral cable assembly deactivated the air bag mechanism, horn, and could also cause the cruise control to malfunction. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer stated that the VIN was not included in a voluntary manufacturer recall related to the air bag failure. The approximate failure mileage was 94,000.

  • Automatic transmission

My husband & I purchased a 07 Camry. A few weeks after purchase, husband noticed problems. Transmission was not "acting" right. The car would hesitate for a few seconds when we given gas or sometimes accelerate when we did not; the brakes were bad; & steering column "shook" when we drove over road bumps or speeds > than 50. Over next few months when we took the car in for service & voiced our concerns, the service person would tell us that he could not find anything wrong with the car regarding our concerns & during one visit, they drove the car 18 miles & still could not find anything wrong. One day I was getting on freeway & tried to increase my speed, the car stalled for about 4 seconds, as I looked in rear view mirror I saw another car coming behind me at a really fast speed. I was trying to determining what to do as the car appeared to have actually shut off, when it just surged forward & I was moving again. Needless to say, this scared the crap out of me & I called my husband & told him what happened. I felt that if we did not do something, we could potentially have an accident, get killed or kill someone else. I finally called the corporate office & told them our story. They instructed us to take the car to the service dept for an assessment. After assessment the mechanic told me that my steering column needed to be replaced; my rotors were completely warped; and they may have to overhaul my transmission but were going to try & reset it to see if that would help (apparently it is run by a compt which tells it how fast or slow it to go when the accelerator is pressed) apparently the computer was not functioning properly or had a "glitch." They reset the transmission & told my husband & I to drive an additional 500miles to "break-in" the transmission & let them know our thoughts. Well, we have driven the additional miles & we both feel as if the transmission is slipping again. We are at wits end w/this dangerous $30,000+ car.

Suspension and steering. I have noticed when I am driving on the freeway at a speed of about 60+mph, that any dips or bumps causes my cars to sway side to side, and the steering wheel jerks in a different direction. I took my car to the dealership on 11/11/06 and they could not duplicate the problem. I know why, because they did not do a true test drive. My car was checked in with 3544 miles and when I left the dealership something told me to check my mileage and it showed 3548 and at that time I was 1/2 a mile from the dealership. So, I know they did not take my car on the highway, so I will be taking my car back.
