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.

The driver and passenger sun visors do not stay in place when not in use. The hazard is that when a person enters the car, the sun visor hits his or her head if they are not careful. Also, because the sun visor is lower than most normal sun visors, it blocks the driver's view somewhat. I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and I've had trouble ever since I bought this car brand new in 2007. To correct this failure, I have tied the sun visor with duct tape, and connected it to the top handle and the eye glass tray (at the top middle of the car cabin). If I have to use the visor for sun, it constantly swings and is a distraction while driving. Therefore, I wear sunglasses for this defect.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and the sun visors have been sagging when in the stowed position for a year or more. Today, the drivers-side visor has decided to fall into my field of vision while driving. I tried to stow the visor, but it will no longer stay put. I had to remove the visor from the roof. As of yet, I have done nothing to repair or replace as it is a Sunday. I will contact Toyota tomorrow and see what it will cost me. I have read many other similar complaints online and that is what let me to your site.

The driver's side sun visor will not stay up, the driver can become blinded when the visor becomes loose and it cannot be pushed back up to lie flush with the roof. It also cannot be moved to the side.

This has been and ongoing problem for the past two years, but in January the sun visor onthe passenger side completely fell down and blocks my view. I can not get the visor to return to the up position. I have tried to find out how to fix it, but to no avail short of purchasing a new visor and having it installed. I have owned Toyota since 1981 and have never had this problem with any of the other vehicles no matter how old. This one mysteriously failed completely around 55K miles.

Camry 4-cyl

In April 2011, the driver's sun visor on my 2007 Toyota Camry fell down all by itself. It was taped to the roof of the car since getting into the shop was not an option at that time. A few weeks later, the passenger's sun visor fell down all by itself (it too was taped to the roof of the car). The car was taken to the Toyota dealership that we have our mechanic work done at and the service person said that we should call Toyota's home office. This safety issue was reported to the Toyota home office (case # was assigned) but they seemed unconcerned about the issue. I even mentioned to them that checks on the internet revealed numerous people reporting this same issue. This is a big safety concern as visibility problems exist when these visors fall down.

2007 Camry; driver's side sun visor falls down into line of sight and will not stay out of the way. This obstructs my view when driving, making it difficult to see. It will not stay up out of the way. Looks like the only way to fix it is to completely replace the part.

Camry

  • 39,828 miles
When attempting to flip-up my visor prior to driving, driver's side sun visor broke. The breakage appears to have occurred inside the visor itself, and not where it attaches to the roof. Because of this issue, the visor hangs down and obstructs my view out the front windshield and makes it extremely dangerous to drive. When flipping it to the side, it continues to hang down and makes it difficult to see the driver-side mirror, and again is difficult to drive.
