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

  • 12 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. While driving 40 mph, the contact felt that the vehicle was out of alignment. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they checked the alignment, but found no failures. A few weeks later, he took the vehicle back to the dealer because the failure was worsening. They still could not find any failures. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer a third time because he felt that there was an issue with the brakes. Once again, the dealer found no failures. He took the vehicle to a different mechanic, who stated that the bolts in the rack assembly were loose. The mechanic tightened the rack assembly. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer to inform them that another mechanic was able to locate the failure. Two weeks later, the failure recurred. He filed for the lemon law. The vehicle is still not working properly. The failure mileage was 12 and current mileage was 20,000.
