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: The Camry Hybrid's first year is a mixed bag of brake actuators failing and power issues. The hybrid version even shares the same excessive oil consumption as its non-hybrid counterpart. And it hardly gets enough fuel efficiency gains to warrant the extra costs up-front or during repairs.

Toyota seemed to get their act together with later model years, so if you're looking for a used Camry Hybrid I suggest looking there.

2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid Owner Comments

Camry Hybrid

  • 70,000 miles


I purchased a new 2007 Toyota Camry hybrid in 2007. About a month ago, my water pump started to leak. This was unusual because cars that I previously owned, the water pumps lasted for much longer than 3 yrs. Recently, I found out that Toyota had did a national recall on 2004-2007 prius hybrid models for water pumps that leaked. So today, I checked on online forums, and I found out that many owners with the 2007 Toyota Camry hybrids had also had issues with leaking of their water pumps, and had to have them replaced. I had to spend $750 to have mines replaced at the dealership. Please investigate!

Camry Hybrid

  • 39,500 miles
Yesterday, Jan. 16, 2010, I was driving my Camry and noticed the odor of oil through my A/C. it was raining so the street surfaces were wet, and I noticed that I was slipping as I accelerated from stops and making simple turns at normal wet-driving speeds, and three times this almost caused an accident. As I neared my home, the oil pressure light came on for just a moment and went off again. This happened once more a moment before I pulled into my driveway. I parked the vehicle, turned it off, and went inside for a moment to get a flashlight. When I came back outside, there was an oil sheen on the wet driveway spreading out from beneath my Camry. I opened the hood and found oil spatter all over the passenger-side of the engine bay. I checked the dipstick only to find that the oil pan was dry. I closed the hood and waited until today to look into the issue further, as the rain had stopped. I filled the motor with oil and there were no drips visible, so I jacked up the car and checked the oil pan nut and filter housing and they were tight, so I started the vehicle. At that time, a rubber hose located on the left side of the engine began spitting oil out of what appeared to be a pin-hole in the hose. I turned off the car quickly, pushed it back into its parking spot and cleaned up a bit, knowing that I'd have to have it towed for service. A search of the internet for this problem finds a great deal of forum discussion, and that the Toyota avalon using this same engine and part in 2005 had the same problems, leading to a service bulletin. I feel that the inherent danger that this poor engineering poses should be addressed for all Camry owners to prevent the potential accidents that could occur should this happen on the highway instead of normal low-speed surface streets.
