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.

problem #1

Camry 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 313 miles
New Camry hybrid, three days old, "check engine" light alerted us of a problem that proved to be an emission system manufacturer defect that required six days to complete. Dealer fixed the defect for free, but my interaction with the national Toyota customer service Agency in California was unacceptable. This occurred in September 2008, though your pull-down menu does not include 2008 as an option.
