CarComplaints.com 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.

My wife drives a 1999 Camry and has yet to replace her visors. I have heard Toyota went to a plastic clip and we the consumer are getting screwed on this 5.00 dollar part that is costing us 240.00 (both of my visors are broken). I was very disappointed in Toyota when I heard this.Wonder where else they have cut corners trying to save a buck....

Camry LX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles

The visor was first replaced under warranty at about 25,000 miles. And now again at 52,000. So the visor breaks about every 2 or 3 years. I am trying to fix the visor on my own so that it is permanently fixed. The visor was designed with plastic surrounding the metal tensioner, so the visor plastic definitely will break with normal use about every 2-3 years by design AND the visor is held in place with easily breakable clips (not metal screws). Definitely a pain in the ass. Dealer wants $90 for another defectively designed visor plus about $20 to install it. Toyota definitely not the quality car maker it once was...very sad, very disappointing. Never buying another Toyota again.

Camry Leather 4 Cal

  • Automatic transmission

I have two of the 2007 Camry's and both driver sun visors have failed. This is a safety issue and should be addressed by NTSB. There are way too many complaints of these falling down and blocking the driver's view.

Camry

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,900 miles

Just want to say how disappointed with toyota I am. This should never have happen and so soon. My car is in very good condition. Everyone always tells me my car still smells and looks new. This is actually an expensive repair for such a small detail. This definitely needs to be a recall item. I'm paying too much money for this car to have these type of issues. I could've gotten a cheaper car if I wanted to deal with problems such as this, I would'nt feel so dooped when something did mess up. I was gonna upgrade to a new toyota but now a feel like that would be a waist of money. I like quality but that's just not what toyota seems to care about producing anymore. Also the leather on the front driver and passenger doors is lifting. I'm trading ASAP, and not for another toyota.

Can't get a cheap replacement for this, so it's $120. From what I researched on the net, it's not uncommon. First Toyota, pretty disappointed that parts keep falling off. This is the only one that I consider a safety issue, though.

Camry v4

  • Automatic transmission

I bought a Toyota because I thought they had a good quality product. I am very disappointed that this visor broke and and read that other owners are having the same problem. I feel that the Dealer should pay to have this replaced.

Camry LE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles

My 2007 Camry that I just bought, has a problem with the driver's side sun visor. When i first bought it, it would not stay up and it popped when i would put it down. Now it broke completely of the attachment. It will cost $99.00 dollars for the visor and $22.00 for the labor. This is ridiculous for just a visor.

I'm really irritated and disappointed. It's a small thing overall, but I have to hold it out of my way to drive (considering that I like to see and all), and it's a real pain. I just spoke with the head of the service department at the dealership, and of course it's not covered under my warranty now, and I haven't found a bulletin or recall notice, though I have found that this seems to be a consistent problem. Grrrr!

Camry LE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 141,000 miles

Great car, but appears that Toyota has learned some of the corner cutting on trim parts that cost GM so heavily. Visor slowly began dropping further and further until it was unable to support itself. Great car and I would buy again, but definitely has a problem with the driver side visor

Camry LE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

So my sun visor (driver side) broke off. I'm looking into replacing the part. Incidentally, my sister leased a 2009 Camry, and her visor fell off, too. Cheap parts? Probably. But Toyota = cheap parts? I never would have thought.

Camry SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles

The driver side sun visor clip where the visor can be attached or detached was loose since the day I bought it. It has always driven me nuts but it would have been an even greater inconvenience to drop the car off for the dealer to fix it. (The dealer probably would have said it was because I flipped it the wrong way anyways.) About a month ago the clip completely came out of the roof. On my way to work the sun shines through the driver side window so I usually swing the visor around to block it. That morning the clip stayed attached to the visor and flew out the window. It seems like the car gods really don't like these camrys and I agree with them! I'm so happy to find this web site because this is the first of a long list of problems I have had with this piece of junk!
