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.

The driver side sun visor in the 2007 Toyota Camry begin with a clicking noise when changing the position of the visor from up to down. Now the visor is losing the ability to stay in the up position. This defect causes a major blockage in the ability to see the roadway ahead. At this point in time nothing has been done to repair the issue. Hoping that Toyota will issue a recall and correct the issue.

The driver's side sun visor on my 2007 Toyota Camry will not stay in place. The inside grips of the sun visor have broken apart or warped and now the visor continues to drop down in front of the windshield blocking full view of the road which could cause a hazard. I accidentally ran a red stop light because the visor dropped down in front of me. There is nothing that will hold the visor in place unless I physically hold it up with my hand until I reach my destination. At first, the sun visor would squeak when opening or closing until one day it just would not close back.

My 2007 Toyota Camry le's driver side sun visor last week start to droop down and would not stay in the up position causing an obstruction of my driving view. I had to turn the visor to the side but that eventually stopped rotating too. It turns out the metal insert had come out and was no longer providing any traction to the visor. Apparently there have been multiple other complaints regarding the same issue with Toyota Camry's around that year's model. It was definitely a safety issue and I had to remove the visor manually for my own safety and found that the parts inside were damaged. My suspicion is that it was poorly constructed since my 1998 Toyota Camry has had no sun visor issues after 13 years of wear and tear. Luckily I noticed problem and did not start driving immediately. I had to use my left arm to hold the sun visor up for my drive back home. This is an extreme safety issue as this can potentially cause significant visibility issues and lead to accidents and deaths. This problem needs to be fixed and recalled by Toyota. Thank you for your time.

Camry 6-cyl

The driver side sunvisor is defective in my 2007 Toyota Camry. I was driving one day and the visor suddenly fell from its up-and-locked position. The first time it fell, I pushed the visor back up into its up position and it managed to stay lock, albeit not as sturdy. Subsequently, the inability of the sunvisor to stay up intensified to the point where the thing would not stay up at all. I currently have the sunvisor tied up so it does not obstruct my view while driving. I am currently looking for a replacement for the visor. However, Toyota considers the sunvisor to be a "trim" item and will not replace the visor, even though I am covered under their platinum extended warranty.

The driver's side sun visor dropped down unexpectedly and wouldn't stay up unless supported. Very scary to have the sun visor drop down and block ones vision unexpectedly. This could be dangerous if it occurs at the wrong time. An internet search indicates that this is a common problem. Recall is in order before someone gets really hurt or killed.

I own a 2007 Toyota Camry that a month ago had two visors fell down all of a sudden the springs that hold them snapped off the same day. I was driving when the driver side visor fell down and is being held up by tape. I went in to Toyota and they said sorry it is out of warranty you have to pay $240 for two visors. I am furious as I have been reading to many complaints that this should be considered a safety recall as it obstructs the view of the driver. No one is recalling these as a road hazard. It can cause a serious accident or death if fallen while driving and obstructs view like it did me. I had to hold it up with my fingers while driving. This is a class action law suit waiting to happen. If it were maybe 2-6 I can see doing it yourself but hundreds of complaints I see on line and filed my question is why have you waited so long to find Toyota at fault for faulty parts" how is it that hundreds of these for the 2007 have broke around the same time frame all out of warranty but enough to cause great concern.... this tells me that this is a manufactures defect and should be recalled and fixed at Toyota expense. I am outraged that you have not made this a recall for those who have filed. We trust in you to protect us why have you not done this for us"

While driving my 2007 Toyota Camry, the sun visor slipped down into my line of sight. I had to pull over and try to "fold/ snap" it back in place. Then I noticed that the arm piece, that inserts into the actual sun visor was broken/ cracked. I had to drive holding the sun visor out of my vision with one hand and the other hand on the steering wheel. When I went to the Toyota dealership to order a replacement part, I was told that I was the third person in two weeks with the same complaint on the same model car. The part could not be ordered from the "distribution place" because the sun visors were on back order. I had to remove my hanging sun visor because it was a risk and I have not had it replaced because of the back order. In addition, I am the only driver of my car and to my knowledge there was no incident in which the sun visor was damaged.

I purchased a 2007 Toyota Camry from leith Toyota in raleigh nc, December of 2006. Last week my driver side sun visor fell while driving and almost caused me to wreck. Within a few days the passenger side visor popped out of place and now it will not stay up. I talked with the dealership where I purchased the vehicle and they say that it will cost $200 or more to replace both. I went on the internet and to my surprise I found that many more Toyota customers are having this same issue. The visor clips are clearly defective part(s) in these visors. Even the technician admitted that they have had to repair hundreds of these. I would like to think that I can count on Toyota to fix this problem for me at no charge, but I am getting no where with the dealership. I have been a loyal Toyota customer for the past 20 or more years. This is dangerous and could cause a serious accident or even death.

Sun visor on driver's side will not stay in the up position. It hangs down about 1-2 inches from it's original "up" position. After reading on line about Toyota not doing anything to correct the situation with other people, I did not take it to my dealer thinking I would be told it was my car and my problem (not necessarily in those terms).

Driver's sunvisor suddenly and without warning fell down hindering my vision while I was driving. I had to push it up immediately to avoid crashing into a car in front of me. I was unable to keep the visor up and had to drive home holding it with one of my hands. I removed the visor for safety and have not replaced it yet. I have researched this issue and have determined there are numerous complaints with the visor coming down and not being able to go back up and stay in place.
