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.

2007 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 072007

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


When starting out, if it is necessary to accelerate quickly, my 2007 Toyota Camry practically stalls before finally picking up speed. It does not happen every time, but when it does it is unnerving, to say the least! it is quite dangerous, and I have come close to being hit several times. Now I just make sure I have an excess of space before I pull out of a side street or parking area.

problem #1

Camry 6-cyl

This complaint is about my 2007 Camry Toyota V-6. after 1 month of ownership I started to notice that when I reduce my speed and started to speed up there is a hesitation in the car acceleration but the gas would still continue to flow. This caused the car to burn the extra gas to fast and the car burst forward to fast. I took the car to the dealership to adjust this gas flow problem and was told that Toyota was aware of this problem and I would have to learn to adjust to this problem. Nothing else was done. I call Toyota customer experience ctr. And made the same report. I was given a clam reference # 200610080197 and told to have a nice day. I was not told about this problem when I purchase the car, now I feel stuck.
