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 le. The sun visor broke and is hanging down directly in my driving vision. I put it to the side but it doesn't stay. I drive into the sun. This is a safety hazard and I can see on line it's not uncommon. I have duct taped it to the ceiling for now. Toyota wants over $200 to fix. This should never break, and it break seems like it's inside the visor itself.

  • 110,000 miles
While driving into the sun, I pulled my visor down to block the sun. The visor broke & hung limply in my face, blocking my view. When I tried to move it out of the way, it wouldn't stay. In order to drive safely, I ended up pulling off to the side of the road, and figuring out how to detach it, so that it would not block my vision.

Camry 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
The sunvisor of my 2007 Toyota Camry broke. One day I pull it down to protect me from the sun, and could never put it back up. Having the sunvisor down was a hazard, either I had to drive with one hand holding the visor up and the other in the wheel or I had to drive with the visor in my sight and minimum visibility for coming traffic. My husband tried to tape it, but that didn't work. We are not handy people to try to fix it, but one day I got home hysterical driving with the sunvisor down, that my husband basically pulled it out. I haven't called the dealership, as they have never been helpful with any of my complaints.

I drive a 2007 Toyota Camry and the sun visor on the driver side is broken. It seems that everybody is having the same problem with the visors. I was driving when the sun visor broke - its a safety issue since you cant see with the visor hanging in front of you, .

Both sun visors have broken off of the car. The part of the equipments where the rod fits into the plastic piece on the visor itself has failed. The part broke, hung down in my line of driving vision and would not lock back in place. Both have now broken and I had to remove them to continue to be able to drive safely. I have been able to find used parts for just under 100 dollars or I would have to pay 130-150 for new visors. I know this is a problem with many 2007 Toyota Camry owners. It should be looked at a serious flaw in the design of these visors.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 56,000 miles
The driver side sun visor on my 2007 Toyota Camry le broke. The plastic snapped which doesn't allow for the visor to stay in place and therefore blocks driver's view. When I looked at where the plastic broke, it seems as if the metal hinge that allows the visor to move up and down caused the plastic to snap in half (near the hinge). I have not yet repaired this as I've noticed that many people have had this issue and am hoping it will be recalled. Currently it is being held together with clamps as a temporary solution. I use my visor on a normal basis (morning drive to block the sun, evening drive to block the sun).

Driver side sun visor fails under normal wear. Once visor is broken it hangs down in the drivers view creating a hazard. There is no possible way to fix the visor to original condition once in a broken state. Replaced visor with Toyota oem part. Upon inspection of the broken visor, it was determined that the reason the original visor failed was because the tension bar is dependent on a metal clip that it restrained by the weak plastic housing. Replacement visor should have better reinforcement around tension bar. Without destroying the replacement part, it is impossible to determine if a design change has been made to fix this issue.

  • 51,300 miles
2007 Toyota Camry SE at 51,300 miles. The driver's side sun visor made click sound when I try to put it down under normal operation. It lost function of holding itself and does not stay up or down. It is just hanging and blocking the view which is extremely dangerous. It has to be removed and needs to be replaced. I believe this is not wear and tear.
