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.

2008 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

Headlights go on and off after being on for a few minuts.

problem #2

Jul 102009


  • 583 miles
Sporadic failure of the headlight(s) turning off either one or the other and at times both light go out at the same time. Turning the lights off and then on again sometimes resets the light, but then go out again. Changing the bulb did not correct this failure. Contacting the dealer resulted in no action/resolution even though the vehicle was still under warranty.

Camry 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
My visor on the driver side was wobbling around and would get in my way of driving numerous times. One day the entire visor finally just fell off and within two weeks my passenger side visor did the same thing. This should be a recall, it impairs your driving when the visor starts malfunctioning and if the sun is out and there is now now visor, the glare could prevent a driver from seeing someone or another vehicle. Toyota needs to step up and cover this issue.
