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.

Vsc warning on dash, check engine light, traction control light, and general warning (triangle with exclamation). Acceleration seemed stiffer than normal, thought smelled something burning. At dealer for diagnostics. Have reported need to replace transmission computer ($872.09 total) and possibly the engine computer (trans. + engine = $2233.35 total). 2007 Camry xle, approx. 64,000 mi. Purchased 10/18/2006. There have been at least three recalls for the 2007 Camry line. Should these repairs be covered by Toyota" should I have the car evaluated by transmission specialist, such as aamco"

On Feb 10, 2010 my 07 Toyota Camry accel pedal stuck on me, 5 days after the recall was done on it. It revved from 2000-4000 rpms, I had to brake hard for it to stop and regain control. Took it into Toyota, they looked at it, returned the car and told me "nothing was wrong." On March 4, 2010 it happened again, this time it accelerated from 20 mph to 40 mph in a split second, and I almost hit the car in front of me. Again I had brake hard to gain control of my vehicle. Toyota again looked over my car, and again came up with nothing wrong with my car. So that is two times after the recall was completed that my has accelerated. It also did accelerate before the recall.

My 2007 Toyota Camry is dangerous and defective. I have being saying since my first maintenance check at the dealer that the car doesn't seem to be working the way it should. Now it has been recalled for a "sticky pedal". the problems I have are not a sticky pedal problem. The car lurches at times when accelerating. It lurches forward from stops. I have already hit a curb because of it just a couple of weeks ago. I have video footage of the road and the damage to the car from hitting the curb. I can email you the video footage. The car also seems to drift momentarily as if there is a steering synchronization lapse defect. When I mentioned these both to the dealer a year ago, the dealer's service tech said it was just the safety feature of the car working properly. There are split seconds when the steering wheel does not control the car while it is driving. This all seems to happen randomly. I wonder if Toyota programmed the car to do this on purpose to increase the number of times I would need to have the car serviced. The dealership has so far refused to take the car back and cancel my lease. So I am still driving this unpredictable car every day. There is something wrong with this car.
