Notes: Much like the 2007 model year, which has a higher number of complaints, owners are reporting that their engines are running out of oil awfully quick. As in, 1 quart every 1,200 miles. Toyota maintains that’s with the “normal” operating range of the 2AZ-FE while owners maintain that’s complete BS.

The issue may be the result of defective piston rings and is the possible target of a class-action lawsuit.

Driver side sun visor became loose and eventually fell off. There was nothing out of the ordinary, no roughness, just normal use. Loose one day and would not hold in place (either up or down). Finally fell off in my lap. Toyota said they were aware of other complaints, but would not fix for free because of expired warranty. Replacement costs +$120. I found numerous other customers on line with the exact same problem. I believe this should be recalled and fixed for customers. Why would so many folks have the visor suddenly fall off?

Vibration of 2008 Toyota Camry when air condition is turned on. Was told that it was a normal vibration for 4 cylinders when the A/C was turned on. Several complaints was made but was told that it was normal. Does occur with other Toyota 4 cylinder vehicles. Only occurs when air conditioner is turned on....

A few days after I took possession of my 2008 Toyota Camry, the splash guard came off. I was told that (1) I had gone over something and pulled it off, or (2) the factory may not have tightened the bolts enough. The dealer tightened the bolts. A few months later, the same thing occurred. This time, I noticed that the wheels were hitting the splash guard when I turned sharply. I brought the car in and reported the problem but all the dealer did was tighten the bolts again. Immediately after the bolts were tightened, I noted that the same thing happened when I turned the wheel sharply. I finally had a free day and brought the car in again and told the dealer that the same thing was happening. Again, I am being blamed for going over things in the road and they refuse to look into the situation. I am trying to avoid a dangerous incident. What can I do to insist that the car be given a thorough safety screening at no cost to me?

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Camry. While driving at any speed, there is a glare in the rear window that hinders the contact's visibility. She called the manufacturer and was informed that it was not a vehicle safety defect, but rather a design flaw. The contact purchased some black fabric and laid it across the inside of the window, which remedied the failure. The failure mileage was 800 and current mileage was 1,000. Updated 6/16/08 updated
