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.

  • 35,425 miles


We just moved to Nevada and began noticing that after driving at highway speeds of 75mph that the car will make a rubbing, grinding sound in the front end for the next ten+ miles at low city speeds. It is definitely connected to the front wheels as the sound speeds or slows as the driving speed does. It is becoming longer after each trip to town. We drive 50 miles at the high speed to get to the metropolis. All driving is on paved roads. Concern that we may have front end problems driving at high speeds and possible accidents. Toyota has no place to request or look up the problem on their website.

High beam headlights came on and would not turn off. Fuses had to be pulled due to the battery being drained. Online research shows there is an apparent problem with the headlight relay or switch but there is no information online where they are located. Also there is a severe knocking noise in the front end. The rack and pinion had to be changed as well as the struts and the car doesn't even have 50K miles on it. Toyota is junk!

I have a 2007 toyoto Camry ce. In December 0F 2010 I had new tires installed after 42,000 miles and the Firestone dealer stated that all four struts were leaking and that replcement would cost approximately $1575.19. I suggest that this is a safety defect that should be looked into.

I was stop at the stop light waiting for the light to turn green. When light turn green, I proceeded to make left hand turn into the undivided ramp. The steering would not return to the right. I turn the steering wheel as fast as I can to the right, but vehicle would not go to the right. On coming traffic hit me head on and collided head on with no air bags deployed at all. Bruised on head due to hitting head on driver side window. Insurance company had taken all parts for investigation. My left wheel was torn in half like it was open up by a can opening. Ball joints were off also.

Toyota Camry 2007 - persistent vibration steering at highway speed - not being resolved by a series of attempts such as balancing, tire replacement, alignment, brake component replacement. The steering vibration was part of a Toyota service bulletin but despite the specific instruction on how to fix the problem, the vibration was never eliminated. Lately, vehicle also showing vibration when braking - also at highway speeds. Brake repaired at dealer without results. Toyota dealer has provided no further resolution option. The concern is if this is a result of the original steering vibration with the vehicle showing further deterioration.

February 5, 2010 re: Leaky struts on Toyota Camry I have purchased my 2007 Toyota Camry from dch Toyota dealership in simi valley. I have been informed by 2 certified mechanics outside of the dealership that my struts were leaking. They found the problem when they did an oil change, brakes and tire replacements. I took the car to dch Toyota for an inspection when the car had only 30,000 miles on it, they said that it was normal seepage and they did not make a note in the computer that they had inspected it. The car was still under warranty at that time I took the car to them again yesterday when the car had 60,441 miles on it. The dealership's mechanic indicated that the struts were leaking excessively and that could cause the tires to wear out much more quickly. By the way, I have replaced all 4 tires and the rear brakes during the 3 years that I've had the car. I'm certain that it's highly unusual for the struts to leak at such low mileage. The two certified mechanics outside of dealership have had the same opinion. I have print outs of numerous complaints about the same issue from other Camry owners who have reported their problems on various websites on the internet. Dch Toyota has told me that I would have to pay $2,300 to get the struts replaced additionally, all 4 rims on my car have rusted completely all around the rims. They have asked me to take the car into the dealership on February 19th for them to have it inspected by their district manager. After the inspection, they will let me know if they will replace the rims under manufacturer warranty or not. I need your help with this matter because I believe that leaky struts is a defect has not gotten attention from Toyota manufacturers even though there have been a lot of complaints. The problem will cause my tires and brakes to wear out much much more quickly.

I purchased my Toyota Camry le in June 2007, since that time I have had several front end alignments on my vehicle by different businesses. After the alignments, the car still pulls to either side and doesn't ride straight. The Toyota dealership claims there is nothing they can do and the car alignment is fine. I have talked with other Toyota Camry owners that have the same issue with their Camry's also.
