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 sun visor on my driver's side failed on its own. It impaired my vision because it would droop down and sit within my view. That was fixed under warranty. Now, the passenger side sun visor droops and it is in the way of my right view. Toyota refuses to fix the problem. After searching the internet I found that this is a common issue with Toyota.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 39,000 miles
Both the driver and passenger sun visors became inoperable in a relatively short period of time -- first the passenger side failed at about 39K miles and then the driver side at 42K miles. The mechanism inside the visor that makes it stay up or keep it in a fixed position appears to be defective. This part broke which caused the visors to hang down with no support. The driver side visor failed on me while driving on the freeway which created a dangerous situation as it hung loose and blocked my visibility. The visor would not stay up; I had to hold it up with one hand as I drove with the other until I could find a safe place to pull over.

Driver-side sun visor will not stay up. My car is three years (3) old, and the dealership advised using velcro (if I didn't want to pay the $178 to fix it.)

I bought this vehicle in may of this year as a certified vehicle. The sun visor on the driver's side will not stay in the "up" position though I have never had to be forceful when adjusting it. The visor hangs down and interferes with my driving, especially at night, and I have resorted to removing it completely. My impression in that this visor is defective and the Toyota dealership warranty does not cover it.

Our 2008 Toyota Camry's left and right side sun visors broke within a week of each other. We have 31,000 miles on this car. It is a safety hazard trying to drive with these hanging down.

Both driver and passenger sun visors are defective and no longer function properly which causes obstruction of view and dangerous driving conditions. The visors are still connected but for some reason, droop horribly and will not stay in their proper positions. On 8/23/11 as I was driving in morning traffic, the visor came down and obstructed my view. When I attempted to move it to the side, the entire visor came off.

Camry

  • 59,341 miles
After about 1 week of having the driver's side sun visor becoming increasingly weak, and unable to be completely tucked in the forward position (toward windshield), the visor joint completely failed today, resulting in the visor blocking vision from the drivers seat. This resulted in having to hold the visor up, in order to make the drive home from work (~40 minutes). This incident happened today, and no repairs have been attempted yet.

I have a 2008 Toyota Camry and both driver and passenger side visors are just hanging down and wont stay up. I tried to take them back to the dealer to get fixed but I have a long commute to work so after 2 years my warranty was up. Its very hard to see sometimes without visors that work.
