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.

Rotten egg odor in the cabin. When the car is accelerated, a very strong odor invades the cabin of the car. We have to lower the windows to vent out the odor. Toyota claims that this type of odor at the exhaust is caused by too much sulfur content in the gasoline, but the problem is that the odor is getting in the cabin. I understand that the gasoline has to pass certain standards and that the vehicle should be able to cope with any type of gasoline sold at us and it's territories.
