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.

2007 Toyota Camry le with distortion in the windshield. The consumer informed the dealer of the distorted windshield and they stated they would replace it. When the consumer returned to pick up his vehicle he noticed the same distortion. The representative from the dealer showed the consumer another Camry with the same defect. The consumer was informed all Camry's were made that way and he may still have that problem if another windshield was ordered.

2007 Toyota Camry SE. I noticed film started to peel off from my front and rear windshield. I am unsure what caused it but it really poises a tremendous hazard. It distorts the view of the driver and may lead to traffic accidents. I hope there are no other cars with the same issues. The dealer, longo Toyota, indicated this was a manufacturers defect and would replace both windshields.

I purchased my 07 corolla le on 9/19/07 from a dealer in pa. After I drove the car the next day a was feeling car sick, especially when making turns. It seemed that things were moving in my peripheral vision. On further inspection there are major ripples in the windshield; I just so happened to get a rock chip on Friday the 13th and dealer suggested I get it repaired. I ask the dealer about the ripples they seemed dumb founded and didn't seem to know what I was talking about. So I took there advise and took my vehicle to their recommended facility. I then asked that tech. And his supervisor the same question and they both said there was a major defect in the windshield and to have it replaced asap. I just left the dealer to have them inspect the back window seals and to have them replaced and an oil change when 5 minutes later I returned with the verdict from the glass place. They inspected the windshield and decide to replace it. I got the new one and this one also has a slight ripple not as bad as the first but still there and noticeable to me and the service manager and assistant manager. They went and looked at the others on the lot and stated that they are all like that. I didn't care they were all defective I wanted mine repaired correctly and was told that it was up to Toyota to decide the result. Upon filing a complaint to Toyota experience center they informed me that it will not be replaced again there is nothing wrong with it that all the vehicles on the lot are the same way. I stated that I can't help that all your windshields on the lot are defective she kept stating that it wasn't a defect. I told her if they didn't think it was defective they wouldn't have replaced it the first time. I found some other vehicle owners of Toyota vehicles Lexus, my corolla Tacoma and sedona and a few other people I have spoken to also with the same problem. Toyota continues to give you defective windshields with ripples and tell you there is nothing wrong with it.
