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.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry lxe. A driver decided to move into my lane from the left, to avoid a serious collision I had to swerve to the right and hit the brakes. My anti-lock brakes locked and I had no control over the car as we skidded across four lanes and hit a concrete wall. The air bags did not deploy and the seat belts (which were in use) did not lock us in. My wife hit the inside ceiling and the right window of the front door. I tried to find an attorney to go after Toyota but could not find one who had the guts to stand up to Toyota. There was over $14,500 in repairs and as of today they are still putting the car back together again.

2007 Toyota Camry. Back seatbelts "lock" while driving. My children sit in booster seat and use shoulder belt. We will be driving and they will lock where they can not move. We have to undo seatbelt, pull out a little and then it will retract. This has happened frequently and not in response to sudden stop. 3/14/10 one of the seatbelts in back did this and it will not come unlocked. The dealer is going to replace the entire seatbelt but it seems odd that this happens with all the belts. We do not feel confident they will work properly if there were and accident. With recent recalls related to possible mechanical and brake system thought it should be reported.

On more than occasion the drivers side seat belt has become inoperable. It appears that it does not retract properly and will not release so that the driver can put it on. After several hours or days it will finally retract and begin to work again. This problem was reported to the dealer and was working when we took it in. Nothing was done. It is going in again because it is happening more often and lasting longer.
