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 drivers side visor repeatedly dropped in the extreme down position, blocking my ability to see for driving. It would not stay in any upright position and hung loosely. Out of frustration for my safety and ability to drive, I had to pull it off the flimsy metal holder until I could get to the dealer. Toyota northridge did repair at no cost, although I do have an extended warranty.

The driver side visor failed on me when I put it down. This seems to be a common issue with the sun visors. This issue can be a potential hazard as it obstructs my view during normal operation of the vehicle. I have to move the visor to the side in order to have a full view ahead. If the visor is left in front of me then it is hard to see traffic and traffic lights in front of me and can potentially cause an accident. Toyota should replace this part as it can be a potential hazard.

The driver side sun visor will not stay in the "up" or stowed position it hangs down, about halfway. I really believe this is clearly a safety issue because it has blocked part of my sight. Toyota dealerships want over $200 to fix it. They refuse to fix it free of charge unless there have been more complaints. This is also not included in any of their warranty products.

Driver's side sun visor started to fall apart around March 2011, it became safety issue as it failed to stay in stowed position and was only matter of time before it fell off altogether. Went to dealer to buy replacement at cost of $121.85. Now passenger side visor is doing the same thing and will have to be replaced soon. Also rear lap seat belt is unserviceable due to locked-in retracted position.

Concerning the driver's side interior sun visor; the plastic housing of the visor separated from metal arm that attaches to the roof of the vehicle (the plastic casing cracked). The visor was dangling from the metal attachment and obstructing my view, hitting my forehead as I would brake or accelerate. Had to pull it off completely to avoid visibility obstruction, distraction from driving, and being stricken on my forehead!

Driver's side visor has broken and is hanging in the line of vision. This is causing an obstruction of view for the driver whether in the forward facing position or rotated to the left side where it blocks the driver's vision to the left. The visor was not being mishandled when it broke. This is a safety issue as the driver cannot see properly and causes problems when driving and trying to deal with the visor in order to improve visibility of the road. It is my understanding this is a common problem in the 2007 Camry yet Toyota has not issued a recall for the visors. This could potentially cause an accident.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
The driver's sun visor has dropped on both of our 2007 Camry's that we own. One is so bad that we removed it because you can't see with it down. However, if you are driving East or West you are blinded by the sun. The other car is just as bad because the visor won't stay up. This too is a problem for driver safety and for the safety of others!!! this isn't a coincidence that out of all Camry's sold that we got the two where the visors failed. There needs to be a recall!! why should the owner be held to paying for this expense when it is a factory defect?

The sun visor started flopping down when I was driving. It would not stay up. I used a straight pin to help hold it up out of way so that I could drive, but needed it when facing the sun to block out the sun's rays.

The drivers side sun visor no longer stays in the up ourt of the way position. The visor now flops down and does not stay up causing a empairment of your vision. If pushed to the side window it is still down blocking my side vision. This is a very common compaint from many Toyota Camry owners.

The driver side sun visor broke and will not go back up. This inhibits my ability to drive safely especially in bright and low light situations as well as in general because it obstructs my view. Toyota will not fix it unless I pay $150!

problem #211

Aug 082011


  • 55,000 miles
Purchased the vehicle from authorized dealer in 2011, had 24000 miles at the time. Within one week returned to dealer because car was making noises as turning and at when braking steering column would shake. Dealer changed a tire and rotated and balanced all and sent me home. After about 6 months, steering column is now continuously shaking as brakes are applied. Went back to dealer at 55,000 miles and dealer said this was unrelated to the original shaking problem and diagnosed it as the steering column issue. I have the extended warranty so I will have to pay the $100 dollar deductible. Next, my sun visor just broke on the drivers side, it just fell down and would not go back up as I was driving. It was obstructing my view so I played with it and the thing ripped the cloth and then came right off. Dealer will not cover costs and says it is not covered under the warranty. Obviously a known issue.

The sun visor on the driver's side started to come off. I thought it wasn't a big problem at first until it started to come off and was literary dangling. Although this is a small part in the vehicle, this is a major safety hazard.
