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 car was in for routine 25K service, dealer advised I needed rear brake pads. Have since been advised by two mechanics that indicates there's a problem. Dealer has since advised a tsb was issued for this year/model vehicle.

problem #1

Dec 172006

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles
Complete loss of acceleration (up to 5 seconds or so) while making turns after having either slowed down, or completely stopped. Two of those times have almost resulted in accidents from oncoming vehicles. Complaint made at a Toyota dealership. They claim no recall information, but have indicated that it wasn't the first time they've heard of it. No solution given other than the 800# to call Toyota directly to make a complaint. Nice.
