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.

My 2007 Camry le (4-cyl) hesitates when accelerating, sometimes 2-3 seconds, to the point that it seems unsafe. The technician said that it is designed to have an "adaptive memory" meaning that if I drive conservatively, with normally no quick acceleration, that it "remembers" that and will not accelerate quickly when I want it to.

I purchased a 2007 Toyota Camry le on late April of 2006. Since then, I have experienced numerous times the presence of acceleration problem. Vehicle hesitates when pressing the gas pedal at low speeds. When pressing the pedal all the way, the car "sits" on the road at the current speed, and after a few seconds, it kicks forward. This is very dangerous when driving in traffic, which for me is everyday living in the DC metropolitan area. There have been times that I have to move out of the traffic because by the time my car started accelerating, the car in front is braking. Other cars have had to move around me because of this problem as well. This seems to be a common problem reading the postings in this website and others. 8jb

Camry automatic transmission fails when accelerator pressed during passing other vehicles or accessing highways. Nearly causes rear-end collisions.

My 2007 Camry le automatic transmission (4 cylinder) constantly hesitates when pulling out into intersections, or continuing through an intersection after red lights or stop signs. There have been several close calls when vehicles have had to move around mine to avoid a collision. The vehicle halts at 10-30 mph when it's shifting and continually places my family in harms way. The dealership told me that this is common with the new automatic transmission and there is nothing that can be done. My wife was almost rear ended when the vehicle stopped accelerating for approximately 5-10 seconds!

I recently purchased a 2007 Toyota Camry le, 4 cylinder passenger car. When accelerating from a stop, there are times the vehicle will not move and I experience a serious hesitation of acceleration. The rpms don't even appear to be revving up, its like there is nothing there. I had one experience where I was making a left turn, and the car did nothing, almost got hit by an oncoming vehicle. Both my husband and I have experienced these numerous times. Dealership took vehicle in, said they could find nothing wrong. This problem is an intermittent problem, but it does exist.

Cruise does not maintain speed while going down grade. Accelerating from lower speeds or a standing start is preceded by a distinct hesitation that is a potential driving hazard.

2007 Camry 4 cyl. Automatic - this car has a serious lag in response time when you are accelerating - whether it be when going up a hill, pulling out in traffic, or changing lanes to pass a slower car. You are in danger of getting rear-ended!dealership said this is the way it is designed. Very dangerous!

When using the cruise control then speed fluctuates on slight grades and the car suddenly downshifts to 4th and sometimes to 3rd this is alarming and should not do this > Toyota says this is normal my other 4 cyl 2002 Camry did not do this.

When car is accelerated from dead stop, as car passes 20 mph, the car surges, hunts for gear, upshifts and downshifts wildly and sporadically, lurching and over-revving to 5,000 RPM or higher. Car cannot be safely driven. Had to be towed for service.
