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.

Driver side sun visor suddenly stopped working. Visor suddenly fell down while I was driving obscuring my view. This is clearly a safety hazard and I am surprised a recall has not been issued. I have only had the car 4 years and approximately 96,00 miles.

Camry 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
First my driver side visor started to give me problems by making a popping sound which didn't last very long. Eventually the visor completely gave out by falling down in my face and my head while driving. I had a hard time keeping it in position and figuring out how I can use the visor to block the sun. I had to rig the visor with a small bungee cord. I was extremely frustrated and embarrassed by the contraption to hold the visor in place and the function of the visor. After months of frustration and embarrassment I took the visor out. Then soon after of removing the visor on the driver side the same thing started to happen on the passenger visor. Talk about being humiliated and upset with Toyota. As this was not the only problem I was having with the car for ex. Recent recalls, belts replaced, the cost to have my ignition coils replaced then not to soon after the crank shaft sensor. Expensive!!! I contacted my local Toyota dealer to inquire about replacement and cost and possibility of a recall on this after reading how many other 2007 Toyota Camry owners were experiencing the same exact issue. I had no luck with Toyota and have not been able to replace due to costs. I just deal with the sun in my eyes while driving.

Camry 4-cyl

  • 45,000 miles


Driver side visor has failed. At first it was just a bit loose so I didn't really mind. Now it has fallen almost completely down and will not stay in the up position. Normal wear might have been considered except my car is only 4 yrs old and 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 rearview mirror. I contacted the dealer and was quoted $134 parts not including labor. I am not able to afford this expense at the moment so I am going to have to remove the visor. From all of the complaints I have found it should be recalled for being a safety hazard and malfunction of equipment.

I drive a 2007 Toyota Camry xle. It has approx. 37,000 miles. My driver side sun visor would not stay up or in position and then ended up falling off completely several days later. I took my car to the Toyota dealership today and they are ordering a new visor. This is going to cost approx. $130 out of pocket, but this is a safety issue and needs to be fixed.

Visibility safety with broken sun visor /driver's side torque pin will not stay up and flops down. Numerous complaints on this particular make/model/year are noted on several web sites. Such as Please review this for a recall as dealer costs are very high for a safety issue on a 4-5 year old car.

  • 60,000 miles
Recently the driver side sun visor broke. It began to slowly come down and hang in front of me as if I had pulled it down to block the sun. If I push it back up it just comes right back down. I'm not able to push it toward the windshield to get it out of the way either. It just falls back down. This is a real safety hazard considering I cannot see the stoplights when the visor is in the way. Also it caused me to almost rear-end another vehicle. I could remove the visor so that I could see better, but this would cause me to be blinded by the sun. I have looked online and found several sites where others are having the same issue and tried calling the dealerships to get this fixed just as they have. But the dealers want over $100 to fix this issue. Considering this is not an issue with just one or two Toyota Camry owners, Toyota should not allow this issue to go on any longer. To not recall these visors will eventually, if it hasn't already, be the cause of someone's life being lost.

Driver side sun visor fall down on 8/1/2011. It will not stay hold up which will block driver's sight while driving. There is potential and serious possibility that this fall down sun visor may cause a car accident. Ever since last year, numerous of people have reported to Toyota that 2007 to 2011 Camry has this problem. As of today, 8/8/2011, Toyota has yet to reply to this problem or make any recall to the problematic model. In fact, Toyota asks their customers who experience this problem to pay for a replacement sun visor which may have the same problem in the future. This problem was created by either design or manufacture. Not by failure of usage.

The driver side sun visor on my 2007 Toyota Camry breaks and hangs down blocking the view of the road. This is the third time it has broken and is a reoccurring problem. It occurs during normal operating conditions. I have taken it to be repaired three times now at my local Toyota dealership. Each time I have had to pay the $50 deductible for my extended warranty. Each time Toyota has had to order the visor leaving me having to drive the vehicle with the visor blocking my view of the road. This sam problem keeps happening and is an extremely unsafe condition.

problem #109

Jul 012011


  • 109,000 miles
Over the last several months, my driver's side visor has been making a clicking noise every time it was pulled down or pushed back up, and started to hang approximately 3 inches down when it was supposed to be in the "up" position. At the beginning of July, it completely stopped retracting back to the up position and now flops/hangs down blocking view (which in my opinion is very unsafe). In order to see when driving, I now have to push the visor to the side. Of course my warranty has long expired (I purchased the car new in 2006) and when I contacted the Toyota dealership service center where the car was purchased, they quoted me a price of $117 for the part, not including labor to replace. Online I have found multiple websites with lots of people reporting the same problem. This is really a safety issue and I believe a recall needs to be issued.
