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. 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.

Re: recall power window master switch this vehicle is showing recall item not taken care of. Long ago I called the manufacturer and they conference called the dealership repair shop. The shop keeps saying they already addressed this recall, but the manufacturer says it has not been resolved. The shop says I came in on a self pay basis and they already did my safety recall but the records show it was never done. To address this issue, they should just complete the service, or re do it if that's the case, (if it was already done) I have no idea if its safe to drive. If I tried to sell the vehicle or trade it in ect...its showing this service recall was never taken care of...

Camry 4-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
My brakes needed replacing at approx. 40-44K miles. My belts/water pump broke/cracked at approx 50K miles. The mechanic said the water pump, if it ever broke at all, shouldn't break till min. 100K miles. I am about to take the Camry to a mechanic to check engine racing and grinding front passenger side window motor. This car has been a money pit with awful visibility. I've spent many thousands on this car before it reach 50K miles.
