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.

Camry 4-cyl

My mechanic showed me all 4 struts(F&R) are leaking too much and that they have to be replaced. I called manhattan beach Toyota and they said it is not covered under any recall or warranty & it will cost over $1400 to replace. It took the mechanic over hours to complete replacing all 4 struts. I am really shocked by this finding, it shouldn't have happened, and Toyota should take care of this problem.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 64,565 miles
The driver and passenger side visor failed on me when I put it down. This seems to be a common issue with the sun visors. This issue can be a potential hazard as it obstructs my view during normal operation of the vehicle. I have to move the visor to the side in order to have a full view ahead. If the visor is left in front of me then it is hard to see traffic and traffic lights in front of me and can potentially cause an accident. My son in-law has a similar car and received a notice from Toyota providing an additional warranty for this same issue but it was only specific to his VIN number. If this is a common issue why do they not send it out to everyone.

The drivers side sun visor will not stay up. It just hangs down in the way. It was not damaged in any way that I can see. Just normal use. When driving I have to eiter move it to the side to see. This has caused some visibility problems when it is very bright outside and you are driving into the sun.I had to remove it as it was impeading my vision during driving. Now I have to drive one-handed in order to shield my eyes from the sun. Toyota will not replace as a warrantied item.

The sun visor on the driver side will no longer retract to its normal position and now hangs at an awkward angle compromising my field of vision. As the sun visor has rarely been used or even touched, I believe Toyota is at fault and should be held responsible for correcting this inconvenient and hazardous defect as soon as possible.

Driver side sun visor fall down on 8/1/2011. It will not stay hold up which will block driver's sight while driving. There is potential and serious possibility that this fall down sun visor may cause a car accident. Ever since last year, numerous of people have reported to Toyota that 2007 to 2011 Camry has this problem. As of today, 8/8/2011, Toyota has yet to reply to this problem or make any recall to the problematic model. In fact, Toyota asks their customers who experience this problem to pay for a replacement sun visor which may have the same problem in the future. This problem was created by either design or manufacture. Not by failure of usage.

The driver's side visor is broken where it connects to the arm/bracket. It doesn't want to stay up. Either way I try to push it (backwards or upward), it falls back down. This is very dangerous because it is difficult to drive not being able to see red lights unless you strain to peer underneath the visor. Please help!

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) October - December 2009 on two (2) separate occasions, my 2007 Toyota Camry accelerated without apparent cause. The second incident happened after I had been shopping at the huntington mall for christmas. I was coming up to a redlight behind several automobiles when the car accelerated. I veered to the right side of the road to avoid hitting the automobile in front of me and braked as hard as I could. I also put the automobile in park as soon as I could. Before this, I had an incident of slight acceleration, but I don't recall exactly when or where-just that I mentioned to my husband that I felt the car didn't want to stop when I applied the brake. On January 6, 2010, I took the Camry to the dealership in which I purchased it for a routine oil change and requested the service department to look at the accelerator pedal. On January 22, 2010, the Camry had to be towed into the dealership due to a busted oil tube (which was later identified as a recall) and again, I asked the repair department to check the pedal. My husband accompanied me to pick the car up later that afternoon and when I asked if the pedal had been checked, the service advisor told my husband that the pedal had been checked and he had driven the car and couldn't find any problems. The service advisor related to us that "something about a recall was on the news about 4:00 a.M. that very morning". after the public recall and two letters addressing this issue with the dealership, I was finally contacted by the dealership to bring my automobile in for recall repairs. Since that time, I've taken the Camry in for a steering wheel concern, which warranted no apparent cause, and recently experienced another incident with acceleration. The acceleration was more of a revving of the engine rather than an out of control acceleration. I would like others to know about these incidence and hopefully avoid injuries. [xxx]

I own a 2007 Toyota Camry and have owned it since 2001. From about a year ago, the gas pedal sometimes gets stuck. This usually happens when I am stopped at a red traffic light. When the light turns green, and I hit the gas pedal, it sometimes does not depress. I have to put a lot of body weight on it to get it to depress. This causes initial sudden acceleration. This has been happening quite often off late.

I've had my engin air filter & cabin air filter eaten by rodents; one caused my 2007 Toyota Camry to stall several times. Additionally I had a rodent die in the area behind the cabin air filter & decayed. This occurred around July 2006. I've rep[laced the engin air filter & the cabin filter multible times due to this issue & will need to replaced again during my next state inspection according to the dealer. Dealer replaced cabin air filter on July 14, 2006 - replaced engin air filter on May 23, 2007 - replaced engin air filter on January 11, 2008 - replaced engin air filter & cabin air filter on June 23, 2008 - replaced cabin filter on June 26, 2009 - replaced engin air filter on March 10, 2010.

I went to "champion Toyota houston, tx 77034" for recall problem on March 19th. The service advisor named jacy blair signed me on and gave me an appoinment for next day morning( 9:00 am I guess). While I was there, I feel like checking my breaks too so I asked the service advisor about that and she called her technician. The technician advised me to fix my breaks right away because its sefty problem and advise me to leave my car there for that day cos they have to fix "recall thing" too. I aggred and remind him not to forget about " recall thing" again before I left. Next day they called me and left a massage in my phone that my car is ready. I went there and paid $ $480 for fixing the breaks and drove back home. When I look at the invoice at home I didn't see any thing written about " recall thing" so I called them back and talked with jacy again and found out that they gave me the car without fixing the "recall thing". I was bit of angry and I asked her to pick my car from home, fix it and return to me. She said that her senior manager gonna give me a call within fifteen min. And hang up the phone. I waited for 1\2 hour but no one called me so I called her again and she transfer the phone to other guy ( 10 min. Wiat) who didn't want to solve the problem and transfer to another guy ( 20 min wait ). the last person was nice and accepted the mistake and agreed to pick up my car at home next Saturday and fix it. He called me again last Friday to verify my address and told me someone will be there from Toyota next morning from 9 to 10 am to pick up my car. I waited whole day that day but no one came or any phone call. Now, what should I do" go back there even after being insulted twice or drive my car as it is" I feel like Toyota is using this " recall thing" as a grocery store Sunday coupon, where you go for shopping to save little money but end up spending more. In my case I returned empty handed even after spendiing money.

This concerns my 2007 Toyota Camry. I hear a rattle from the instrument panel and supposedly there is a tsb out for it. But I am really at a loss to digest that it is limited to only vehicles under warranty. My car is out of it by a year and about 2500 miles and Toyota will not fix the rattle. They want me to pay for it or live with it.
