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.

While trying to make a turn to take an exit to ramp, I applied brakes to slow down and take the curve but the vehicle accelerated and while controlling it I pressed on emergency brakes and brought car to sudden stop but also hit the curve on the side of the hwy. This is an ongoing issue with Toyota and had happened twice before.

Camry 6-cyl

  • 88,480 miles
The driver's side sun visor broke. The arm that goes into the sun visor came out of the sun visor. It seems that it broke the plastic inside the visor that holds it in place. This caused the visor to keep falling and not stay in place. It created a hazard so I completely removed the visor. The tab on the bar that allows the visor to snap into place has become very stiff to where it is very difficult to rotate around. The stiffness of the arm seems to be what probably broke the plastic.

The sun visor for some time has been clicking when moved down or up. This Monday it finally broke for good. It no longer stays up out of the drivers view and is not able to be adjusted as normal. I have noticed on several discussion groups that this is a very common occurrence. I believe that Toyota has know that this is a week part and should initiate a recall to replace or reimburse the cost of replacement.

Would you please check into this problem IM having with Toyota please? at lease take a 2007 Toyota Camry le for a test drive and roll down the back windows and drive 40 70mph. Here's my story. Toyota says too bad: I was told the defining noise with the back windows rolled down is normal. Without exaggerating, at 70 miles an hour, it would pop an ear drum. At 45 miles an hour your ears close up like youre on a jet plane and become painful. Toyota did take it for a test drive with me and they say the noise is normal for this car. I would suggest you take a test drive of a 2007 Toyota Camry and then have all of them recalled for the damage it may cause your ear drum if you feel necessary. Think of the children that cannot say help when in the back seat.

2007 Camry le with only 24000 km middle heat shield rusted hanging. Toyota in guelph Ontario removed it because it has rusted so it does not fall off. They wanted to charge me $300 cdn to reinstall new one. Should not this be covered by bumper to bumper warranty? I think this is big safety item because it is large piece and if it would have fallen off on highway it could cause injury or death. Again my car has only 24000 km.

The exterior paint on my 2007 Toyota Camry is so defective that it simply washed right off while it was being washed at a car wash. While using the car wash sprayer, I approached the front of my car and noticed the paint wash off about a 2"X3" spot. It flew off with hardly any force from the car wash as though it was not even attached. One could now see the grey primer that was below the black paint, as the primer remained intact. The black exterior paint peeled right off the car. Because the car was still under bumper-to-bumper warranty, I took the car to dennison Toyota to be repaired. Their employee said to bring the car back when the Toyota's regional paint warranty expert was in town, so they could look at it. After doing this, I was very saddened to learn that Toyota would not repair the faulty paint because they said that the car had been repainted already and they would only warrant, their own paint. They determined that the car had been repainted because they said that the now visible primer color was not the color they used. They said they used a black primer but this was a lighter grey. I bought the car with only 22K miles, so I knew it had not been repainted as the carfax was clean, and the grey primer was visible under various scratches in the paint on all sides of the car. Why on earth would someone strip and reprime the entire car? disgruntled, I emailed the Toyota customer service dept. Today, they got back to me and confirmed the primer color should be a light grey, not black indicated by the regional paint expert. They apologized for not training their people better. So I called my dealer again and he is still very squirmy saying that he doesn't know what he can do. I told him that since the premise of the regional paint experts refusal to repair the paint was false, the car should be covered by the warranty since it was the manufacturer's paint that failed before the warranty expired. We shall see what they say.
