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 sunvisor on the driver side of 2007 Camry xle does not stay in place. It droops or completely falls down. Started one week ago, no accident or change in use of visor caused this. Severe danger due to inability to see properly with how the visor falls. Contacted dealer and repair is not considered part of warranty.

The sun visor on the driver side will no longer retract to its normal position and now hangs at an awkward angle compromising my field of vision. As the sun visor has rarely been used or even touched, I believe Toyota is at fault and should be held responsible for correcting this inconvenient and hazardous defect as soon as possible.

Driver side visor has failed. It has fallen completely down and will not stay in the upright position. I rarely use the visor. After some searching, I have found this is a huge problem. My visor blocks my view of the front road and also part of my rear view mirror. I contacted Toyota headquarters in California and was given a case number. The rep stated that Toyota is aware of the sun visor defect complaints and are "calmly" deciding if and how the complaints will be addressed. They stated that there will absolutely not be any repair assistance unless they decide to issue a recall. Bascially saying this is my problem and that I have to deal with it no matter how costly. The dealer quoted $134 parts not including labor. I am not able to afford this expense at the moment and have removed the visor out of safety concerns for myself and family. From all of the complaints I have found, and by Toyota's own admission regarding awareness of the defect, it should be recalled for being a safety hazard and malfunction of equipment.

2007 Camry: The visor on the driver side is drooping down and would not stay up. It is obstructing the vision. I thought it might be a wear and tear but lot of people with the same year/model are having this problem as I read on the internet posts. Can you please look into this for a possible recall.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry. The driver side visor just hangs and obstructs the view. The internal bracket that holds it up gave out. I have been told by my mechanic that it is a design flaw. This is a serious safety issue. Toyota refuses to replace the visor because I am told this things wear out. I tend to believe it was engineered this way on purpose to make the customer buy replacement parts. Can you look into it. Hundreds of other people have the same problem.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry SE and my driver side sun visor broke. It had been making a clicking sound when pulling it down for a few weeks and finally it started to droop and fall down while driving. Now it will not stay up at all and seems to be cracked at the connection to the ceiling of the car. The cost to repair is approximately $180. This is a safety concern as this can impede vision while driving. Also this is a known issue with this model of car. I believe Toyota needs to recall due to this safety issue.

Driver side sun visor began to droop and would not stay in upward or downward position. Finally had to remove visor in order to see while driving. Now have no visor, and sun glasses do not always provide enough protection from the sun to see while driving. This is a major driving hazard....especially for someone with light-sensitive eyes. The visor is too costly to replace easily for some people.

Driver side sun visor of car is defective, for no reason it becomes unstuck and begins to dangle in the drivers vision causing very dangerous driving for all people on the road. This happened in my vehicle without me even using it, the sun visor was not in use when it lost support and begin to dangle.

Both sun visors have broken and will not longer remain up. Driver side was hanging straight down and had to be removed. Passenger side will only stay up at about a 45 degree angle. Both failed suddenly and obscure driver's vision. Upon removing the driver side visor it could be seen that the seam in the plastic was broken and the internal metal clip through which the visor shaft passes slips instead of holding fast. Numerous small pieces of broken plastic from the inside were protruding out of the seam.

Sunvisor started making popping noise when being moved. It then just flopped down and will not stay up. This is on the drivers side and blocks vision. It has not yet been repaired. I called Toyota and will need to bring it in and because it is out of warranty it will be at my expense.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 44,631 miles
2007 Toyota Camry; the drivers side sun visor has "popped" & broken loose from the mounting bracket, in such a way that the visor will not remain in a stationary position, and hangs loosely, in line-of-sight for driving. I had to physically hold it with one hand in order to see clearly while driving in mid-day traffic. When I reached my destination I decided to remove the visor entirely because it is a dangerous interference while driving. On a search for a replacement part I found a Toyota internet forum, where this is frequent complaint for 2007 and 2008 Camry's, so it appears to be a design flaw - one that can seriously impair the driver's field of vision and cause a collision.
