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: Much like the 2007 model year, which has a higher number of complaints, owners are reporting that their engines are running out of oil awfully quick. As in, 1 quart every 1,200 miles. Toyota maintains that’s with the “normal” operating range of the 2AZ-FE while owners maintain that’s complete BS.

The issue may be the result of defective piston rings and is the possible target of a class-action lawsuit.

The driver side sun visor has dropped and will not stay in place. This is obstructing my view. It is very dangerous. It has hit me in the head. I opened it and saw that many pieces on the inside had melted!

Driver side visor broke. The visor's suspension no longer holds visor up and its affecting visibility while driving. Customer service was contacted but they refused to take care of it and want to charge $120 to fix it. There are several complaints through out the internet of unhappy customers who are experiencing the same thing. It's unfair that owners are expected to pay for a part that should obviously be recalled. Toyota won't accept responsibility and refuses to acknowledge this problem. Models 07, 08 and 09 seem to be the ones affected. This is a major safety issue and should be consider as such. I shouldn't have to worry about something blocking my vision while driving.

The drivers side sun visor fell down while driving and blocked my vision of the road. It would not stay up and I had to tie it up to prevent it from blocking my vision. It could have caused an accident.

Sunvisor failed. Flopped down off of its mount while driving causing quite a surprise. Fortunately, traffic was clear and vehicle control was maintained.

Sunvisor has lost all tension and just hangs straight down interfering with visibility on driver's side. Toyota will not assume responsibility when I called and discussed it with them at their customer service center although I have read this is a fairly common problem with Camry 2008. Had to remove sunvisor.

Under normal use, both sun visors at the driver and passenger side won't stay up. Both visor stayed at fully down position, blocked vision and impacted driving visibility. (driver side visor has been replaced three times). This is a design flaw of Toyota Camry 2008 visors.
