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 #1

Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,500 miles


I purchased a 2007 Toyota Camry le in September 2006. Five months after purchase, I noticed a loud "thud" from the rear of the car during normal acceleration. I also noticed that this only occurs when the fuel tank is between half to full. I took the car to the Toyota dealer for evaluation. The service department assessed the car and stated, "it was operating with in the design parameters of the car, and it was just the gas in the tank." In addition, they stated "we cannot do anything about it because it is a normal function of the car." I then filed for arbitration and the arbitrator ruled it was a defect and must be repaired by Toyota. I have made an appointment with the dealer who stated he does not know how to repair the problem, but that a Toyota technical representative will be there to direct the repair of the documented problem. I am concerned that this may be a safety issue; therefore, I am requesting immediate action. I feel that if the car cannot be repaired to my satisfaction with total elimination of above problem, that it will still be a safety issue, and that Toyota re-purchase vehicle.
