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.

Dashboard of subject vehicle started displaying signs of a very sticky substance in the summer of 2013. I purchased this vehicle in Dec. Of 2010 with one previous owner.. signs of melting dashboard did not appear for several years past the warranty. Internet search reveals that numerous Toyota owners have experienced this same problem. After dealing with Toyota directly, I was told they would provide a replacement dashboard but that I would have to pay $624 in labor. My position is that this is either a products liability, implied warranty of merchantability, or latent defect issue and has no bearing on an expired warranty. In addition, there may be a safety concern with deployment of the airbag due to deteriorating dashboard, not to mention the possibility of toxic fumes circulating throughout the vehicle. I firmly believe that Toyota should issue a recall due to numerous similar complaints (see also Camry-how.html and

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) the incident: Accelerated gas pedal the incident took place on crain hwy, glen burnie at the intersection of crain hwy/aquahart rd on 9/26/2009. I was traveling on crain highway when I came to a stop at a traffic light. I applied pressure on the break. And thought I had come to a complete stop when my 2007 Toyota Camry ce had unexpectedly jolted forward. I immediately applied both feet on the brake pedal and said "wow that was weird" I didn't think much about the incident other than I just being a freak malfunction. Only until the recent recalls of my Toyota model was it brought to my attention that I may have experienced the accelerated gas pedal malfunction with my vehicle. No accidents were a result of the incident; however I was shaken up a bit. I received a recall notice from Toyota in late January explaining that my 2007 Toyota Camry was part of a recall to replace the driver's side floor mat and that I was going to receive more information about recall locations in early April/May. After reading newspapers and watching news reports of the public recall announcement identifying the Toyota models that was part of the recall involving accelerated gas pedals. My 2007 Toyota Camry was part of the models identified so I took my vehicle to darcars Toyota of baltimore, 6000 eastern ave, baltimore md on January,10, 2010 and was turned away claiming my vehicle was not part of the recall. I received official notification from Toyota on 3/8/2010 with instruction on where to go and information about the recall on my 2007 Toyota Camry ce purchased May 2006. I have made an appointment with my local Toyota dealership to have my vehicle serviced. VIN # [xxx]

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry built in Japan. I noticed that it is not included in the acceleration or floormat recalls. Do the cars built in Japan not have the same problems as those built in America" if not, what is different that excludes my car from the recall" my VIN # begins with a "J".

I was driving a 2007 Camry in san jose, California on January 29, 2009. Involved in a solo accident and I suffered a concussion so I have amnesia about the actual accident. Post-accident photographs from the investigator from Mercury insurance company confirms in two separate photos that carpeted floor mat was wedged up into the brake/accelerator area. I have filed a civil lawsuit against Toyota motor sales, U.S.a., Inc. In santa clara county. Toyota has yet to accept responsibility for accident. First case management conference is scheduled for may of this year.

2007 runaway Toyota problem-dot has put out a recall notice on my 2007 Toyota Camry le indicating that Toyota's remedy of removing the drivers side floor mat does not resolve the problem and that there is an unindentified safety deficiency. Since the problem in all probability relates to a computer chip governing the accelerator or the functioning of the accelerator pedal, permitting millions of Toyota to operates with a hidden safety hazard is inappropriate. Toyota should be required in a very short finite time period to resolve the problem or recall the cars and reimburse owners. Defective cars that can cause deaths should not be permitted to roam the highways.

Purchased a 2007 Camry le, 4 door, on 12/12/06. Cruise control has failed many times. When going down hill with the cruise on the car will keep accelerating to very unsafe speeds. This started from the date of purchase. I went through arbitration in March of 2007 and was told by the arbitrator "that there has been an unreasonable amount of repair attempts for the same nonconformist that will impair the use, value and safety of the vehicle since Dec.2006". the problem has not been corrected and I don't use the cruise control. I have found that this problem has caused deaths, the latest in California, and several wrecks even in the area where I live. How many lives must be taken before Toyota will step up to bat and make a recall on this defective cruise control. The floor mats that Toyota is saying will cause this problem might be in part the cause but certainly not the root of the problem. I have been trying to get this situation addressed since the purchase of this vehicle and the near wrecks that I have almost encountered to no avail. The arbitrator did agree with my complaints but as stated above there had not been enough attempts provided by the dealership to correct the problem. How many times must one take a vehicle to the dealership with the same complaint before any action will be taken. I feel my life is more important than the runaround that I have received from Toyota and this is a very serious safety malfunction of the vehicle. I have all sorts of documentation to back my complaint and my 2007 Camry is not the only vehicle on the road with this safety issue. I was told by Toyota that the design had been changed with the 2007's and certainly the symptoms are consistent with control system malfunction but they did not know how to fix the problem.
