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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


Front end shimmied when braking. Found front tires were cupped. Had just rotated tires, leaving on a trip, so rotated tires back to front. Returning on trip, car front shook badly when braking going downhill in mountains. Took to dealer, they said (Bridgestone) tires showed cupping. Replaced front brake linings and car seemed to handle ok. Three months later, another trip through mountains, again front end shimmied badly when braking going down steep incline. Dealer said all tires showed cupping, but brakes, cv joints, bearings were ok. Suggested I replace tires (but did not try to sell me any"?") installed 4 new Michelin tires and car handles great although I still feel some dragging in the brakes. Another trip to dealer, paid for a brake inspection and dealer said brakes ok 80 % remaining wear. Car now out of warranty, told dealer I felt they were stalling me on repairs until warranty expired. They said repair record would show problem in past if condition continued. Did not say what condition they were referring too. Feel they are giving me run around on steering problem, but as they said, there are no mountains around here they can test drive.

I bought a Toyota Camry hybrid 2007 at the end of Oct. 2006. I also bought a pre-paid maintenance service. Yesterday, Dec. 6 2007, I took my Camry for the 5th regular service for 25,000 miles. I commute to a distant work, so I put on a lot of highway miles. The service manager form the folsom lake Toyota dealer called me to inform me that I needed to replace all of my four tires. He said that the tread was all worn out. I was extremely frustrated about the exceptionally accelerated wear of Bridgestone tires. I finally was able to talk to the tire company customer service. There their explanation was that because of Toyota's specifications, they produced tires that had softer rubber for better ridership. It makes them last much less than their store tires. By the way, the tires, turanza EL400 in their store will last about 80,000miles. The same brand and same model tires will have two different performance. I did not pay any closer look on the tires because I only put 25,000 miles on them. It is also mostly from highway drive. I spoke with Toyota consumer representative. I was told that it is not their responsible and was told to bring it up to the tire company. I could have gotten into problems because never expected or suspected any bad tires. I had many different cars from different companies, but this is the first time that a brand new car tires lasting only 25,000 miles. A sales person from the Bridgestone store in citrus height said that it is not new that he sees often brand new car tires lasting only about 15,000miles or even less.
