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.

My car makes a thumping noise when the gas tank is full. It occurs when you take off from a stopped position and it sounds like a thump coming from the rear of the car. I fear that this may be a defect in the way the gas tank is secured and that the thump may indicate that the gas tank moves due to the weight of the gas. Toyota claims that the thump is a normal sound and it comes from the gas hitting the inside of the gas tank and that this is a normal characteristic of the car. I don't believe this to be true and fear that this may be a hazardous situation.
