Notes: An increasing number of Toyotas are experiencing excessive oil consumption and the 2007 Camry seems to be leading the charge.

Owners are reporting that their engines are deprived of oil halfway through their maintenance schedules and in some cases the damage is so bad that entirely new engines need to be installed, paid out of pocket. The issue may be a result of defective piston rings and is the possible target of a class-action lawsuit.

Toyota has issued a TSB for this problem, but maintains their stance that vehicles equipped with a 2AZ-FE engine are burning through a “normal” amount of oil.

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The vehicle came equipped with a key that will not open the trunk. The trunk can still open with the automatic key pad. The contact feels that if the trunk is locked with a key, it should only be able to open with a key and not the key pad. The dealer offered to unhook the key pad feature, however, no repair was made. The failure mileage was 5 and current mileage was 4,500.
