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.

On 24 Sept 2009 my passenger side sun visor fell off, the mounting is completely free of the roof, on 25 September 2009 the driver side sun visor (although still attached to the roof) is sagging and inhibiting my line of vision. I attempted to hold the driver side sun visor up by a rubber band attached to the handle above the door. This failed on 26 September 2009 causing the sun visor to impair my vision and I narrowly avoided a collision with another vehicle. I have contacted Toyota, was told that my VIN number is associated with a tech safety bulletin (T-sb-0284-09) however since my vehicle is out of warranty the company will not replace the defective components.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry that was purchased new from a Toyota dealer. After only 2 years, the sun visor will not stay up. This is a serious distraction and dangerous while driving. I did not expect this lack of quality from Toyota and was also surprised that they charge me to replace it.

Driver side sun visor will not stay up. Flops down unexpectedly and obstructs driver's vision of the roadway, overhead road intersection traffic lights, vehicle being followed, pedestrians in the vicinity, etc. Condition started on the "approximate incident date" and continues intermittently while vehicle is in motion. Brought to dealer and complained that condition is a safety issue and possibly a design defect but repair/replacement charge was astronomical. Requested dealer to remove sun visor instead. Broken part is with owner.

The sun visor on my 2007 Camry will not stay up. It is on the driver side, so it actually is a hazard in that it blocks my view while driving.
