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.

Driver side sunvisor keeps drifting down while driving blocking driver's view and creates driving hazard and possible accident.

  • 30,524 miles
2007 Toyota Camry xle with 32,000 miles: Driver's side interior sun visor fails to stay in upright position and locking clip snapped inside visor when attempting to secure. The visor has had problems being loose for months and falls down when going over bumps. The clip would occasionally come undone, causing the visor to swing open. When clicking the visor's lock bar into the roof lock, the bar broke off with minor force applied. Now visor will not stay in place in any position, causing dangerous visibility issue. Auth dealer offered to replace for $185, saying cannot repair. Steep price for similar problem encountered by many many other 2007 Camry owners.

Camry 6-cyl

  • 86,000 miles
After a short while of noticing a strange clicking sound when placing the driver's side visor into an up, locked position, the visor ceased to lock. When this happened, I could feel the broken piece and it created a "bump" underneath the visor material covering. Eventually, it created enough tension on the visor material that the material pulled away from the vanity mirror exposing some of the plastic underneath. The visor will not sit in its upright position or stay forward toward the windshield, but rather hangs directly in the view of the driver. This is very dangerous and significantly impairs the driver's view. Another driver entering my car refused to drive because they didn't feel comfortable with the visibility. Currently, I have the visor taped to the roof; however, this is simply unacceptable for a 4 year old car (2007 Camry). Never have I had issue with a sun visor, nor am I "rough" on my car (I drive a lot, but my car is in very good condition inside and outside). I was among the people affected by the oil line leak, having my car break down while driving with my 8-month pregnant sister in the car. (this was prior to the recall.) Toyota has become a negligent company and it is the responsibility of the us government and NHTSA (among other groups) to protect the consumers from fraud like this. Based on these organizations ratings and evaluations, I bought my 07 Camry thinking I was getting a quality, dependable, safe car. Instead, I have had issue after issue with no assistance from the same organizations who claimed Toyota's superiority; not even Toyota wants to back up its work! I sincerely hope the powers that be make this visor issue a recall and Toyota is held accountable for the products it sells. I welcome my local dealer and/or Toyota to contact me and resolve this issue.

My 2007 Toyota Camry sun visor is faulty. I pulled it down to take a quick glance in the mirror and it flopped down, and now it doesn't stay up. It's fairly dangerous driving with it hanging, so I've taken it off. Toyota is charging $135 to replace it. I started doing research and there are thousand of people with this same problem for 07 Toyota Camry. An investigation for a recall should be looked into.

The driver's side sun visor has suddenly stopped staying in place. It will not lie flush with the roof of the car, nor will it stay pushed against the windshield. It is a visibility hazard. The light is also no longer functioning. This is not due to any unusual use: I pushed it up, it flopped halfway down and now it stays there, blocking my view of the road. As I searched online for repair suggestions, I saw that a great number of Camry owners are experiencing the same issue, leading me to believe this is a factory defect.
