CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2009 Camry used to be adorned with our “Seal of Pretty Good” but that was before an alarming number of complaints started rolling in for excessive oil consumption.

Owners are being caught off-guard with how quickly their cars are running out of oil. No leaks, no spills, just 1 quart of vanishing oil in as little as 1,200 miles. Toyota maintains this is “normal” for the 2AZ-FE engine, even though they issued a TSB for the problem in August of 2011.

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

2009 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 032011


  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,100 miles


I have a 2009 Camry. Since my gas gauge was continuously reading empty I took it to dealer. The dealer indicate the vehicle was in warranty until March 2012 but that because water droplets were found in the tank the 'Sender' had burned out and was not sending the correct gas level to the dash's gauge and that it was not covered by the warranty.

I understand the the sender should have had some tolerance to some level of liquid humidity and should not have failed. This failure of sender should have been covered by the warranty.

They indicated that many pumps had gone bad by water being deposited in tanks of their vehicles but they had no history of replacing senders. The pump works fine and the car runs great, but the gauge in the dash was the only problem.

Should it have been repaired under warranty?
