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 sun visor broke for the second time. It won't stay up, it does not work. Dangerous if sun is in front of you. Second time this happened to me, it's not wear and tear like the dealer said. Hate to spend another $200 if it's going to brake again. It's something wrong with the part, Toyota should take care of this, I see a lot of complaints about it.

The drivers side sun visor suddenly swung down in front of my face while driving. Something feels broken along the spine of the visor. It no longer will stay in the upright position and significantly blocks visibility. I have removed the visor completely to avoid the hazard it poses.

I was driving don't remember the date but early part of this year the visor on the driver just drop almost hit the car in front of me. It started like getting hard to snap back in place at first but just drop. The visor on passenger side did the same thing bout two week later took it todealer he told me it was nothing they could do wasn't a recall so I had to pay for it. Needless to say I have no job and no visor. This car was new when I bought it in the last of 2009, with 307 miles. And it nothing can be done I see all these other people with the same problems on this gov.site and nothing been done yet I guess someone got to get hurt or kill first. Why hasn't it been a recall to correct this problem.

Driver side sun visor will no longer stay in the up position. It now hangs down and blocks the drivers view of the road making the vehicle unsafe. This was replaced under warranty in 2009, but the new visor broke in early 2011, after the expiration of the warranty.

The driver's side sun visor has failed twice internally, the replacement cost is ~$150 us, non- warranty item. It obstructs the driver's view and the vehicle is not safe to drive until the visor is removed.

The driver side visor would not stay raised and in place and would flop straight down inhibiting your ability to see. We had to remove the visor completely as it was a safety hazard. Dealerships do not recognize this as an issue, and no recall has been announced by Toyota. Dealers are charging to fix this problem and it seems to be a massively widespread problem with this model. See the following link for just a few examples: www.toyotanation.com/forum/archive/index.php/T-343284.html.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry le purchased in 2007 and the sunvisor broke while I was driving which almost caused me to get into an accident. It wont stay up and just flops back and forth. I called Toyota and they said it would cost 180 to get it fixed. I have done some research and noticed other Toyota owners were having the same issue. This is still a new car and should not be having this issue. I also have a 92 Honda Accord and the visor is still in place. This is ridiculous.

Sun visor has broken three times. This causes the visor to drop and impair visibility while driving. This is a safety hazard and should be a recall item.

The drivers side sun visor will not stay up. It just hangs down in the way. It was not damaged in any way that I can see. Just normal use. When driving I have to either move it to the side to see. This has caused some visibility problems when it is very bright outside and you are driving into the sun. I had to remove it as it was impeding my vision during driving. Now I have to drive one-handed in order to shield my eyes from the sun. Toyota will not replace as a warrantied item. Very dangerous to drive.

  • 77,000 miles
The drivers side sun visor failed to stay in place after owning the car for approximately 5 years. The visor will not stay up or in any locked position and is very distracting, I have had to pin it up to keep it from falling. It seems as if there is no recall on this nor are Toyota dealerships replacing them for free. Would be nice if Toyota would fix this due to the visibility and distraction this causes while driving. After removing, I noticed that the hinge is very tight which caused the plastic visor to break. I ended up buying a new visor online and install manually. I have loved my Toyota and now am very disappointed about this defect.
