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.

My Toyota Camry 2007 has defected the visor won't stay up if flops down and is difficult to see to drive. It can't be moved to the side either, as it is broken at the top. This is a safety concern, a lot of Toyota owners has this same problem. Toyota should be has recall this defective part replacement.

Sun visor has broken and drops down to block drivers view. This has happened on both sides, though not simultaneously. Visor must be held in out of the way position until something such as tape can be fixed to hold it up. Given the suddenness of the incident, it could cause loss of view at a critical time.

problem #240

Jun 222012

Camry 6-cyl

  • 88,480 miles
The driver's side sun visor broke. The arm that goes into the sun visor came out of the sun visor. It seems that it broke the plastic inside the visor that holds it in place. This caused the visor to keep falling and not stay in place. It created a hazard so I completely removed the visor. The tab on the bar that allows the visor to snap into place has become very stiff to where it is very difficult to rotate around. The stiffness of the arm seems to be what probably broke the plastic.

  • 85,000 miles
While driving down the interstate this morning, my driver's side sun visor suddenly flopped down into my line of sight, causing me to almost have an accident. It will not stay up or pushed back out of the way- it falls to the lowest point, directly blocking my view of the top half of the windshield. I tried moving it to the side, but it blocks my vision here. I have not seen the dealer yet, but after searching online forms I see that this is a common problem in Toyota's that they are refusing to acknowledge or accept responsibility for. There are over 230 complaints about this problem on this database for just the 2007 Camry. From what I've seen, Toyota thinks it is no big deal to pay $100-$200 to replace a part that is shoddy built. However, this is a major safety hazard and the defective part should be recalled in all models immediately, regardless of warranty or mileage. It obviously is something they have known about for a long time but they continue to ignore the potential seriousness of this malfunction.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


As I put the driver's sun visor up to leave a parking lot, something broke in the mechanism that holds the visor up and it flopped back down. It won't stay up and it won't stay against the windshield -- it just hangs down above the steering wheel, leaving you with about 4-5 inches of visibility out onto the road, even less if you're tall. I feel very lucky that this didn't happen as I was driving over a bump in the road at 40 miles an hour! it's a very unsafe feeling to drive stooped down to see through the opening or with one hand holding the visor up so you can see ahead to what is coming up in front of you. Since this will probably happen to most people after the 3-year warranty runs out and many people won't be able to afford the repair, it's a real safety issue. I think there needs to be a recall, as it appears many people are having this problem.

The driver's side sun visor is no longer functioning. It hangs down. I am reporting this because I have read many other reports reported within this website of the same issue. I do not understand why when there are so many affected vehicles, a recall is not done. I will probably just pay to get it fixed, not much choice, but this is a safety issue, and Toyota should be asked to make this repair for affected customers at no cost to the consumer.

My sun visor won't stay up. It is a safety hazard and is difficult to see while driving and hanging down in my face. This is the second sun visor that I have had to replace, at my expense $130!! I am really upset that Toyota expects us to replace these, when it is obviously a manufacturer defect and is affecting this many people. I am a Toyota Camry die hard. Please do something. If something is not done, I will not ever buy another Toyota.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 72,000 miles
The driver side sun visor wont go up all the way or extend back. It hangs down part way, so if I happen to be in an accident, I'm afraid it will severly hurt my forehead. If I put it down straight, so it wont hurt me, then my field of vision is impaired. All in all, not very safe. I've read on line that 2007 and 2008 Camry's are having this problem and I'm not alone.

The driver side visor is defective in my opinion which is preventing me to properly see the road. This part cannot rest on the roof but rather it droops down in a slanted angel. The rear doom light is falling apart exposing wirings in the passenger compartment.
