Notes: The 2009 Camry used to be adorned with our “Seal of Pretty Good” but that was before an alarming number of complaints started rolling in for excessive oil consumption.

Owners are being caught off-guard with how quickly their cars are running out of oil. No leaks, no spills, just 1 quart of vanishing oil in as little as 1,200 miles. Toyota maintains this is “normal” for the 2AZ-FE engine, even though they issued a TSB for the problem in August of 2011.

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

2009 Toyota Camry. The driver side sun visor dropped to the down position blocking site visibility ( this occurred while the vehicle was being driven and was in motion on a public highway) and it will not stay in the retracted (against the roof) position. It continues to obstruct vision when in the forward position and blocks peripheral vision when swung up against the driver's side window. When the dealer was contacted their representative stated that it is a common and ongoing problem that has not been addressed by Toyota. Searches on the internet reveal that this is a problem that has persisted for a number of years. It is highly likely that this problem will lead to vehicular damaged and/or personal injury if it has not already.

Having problems with the windshield. I guess you can call it windshield bubbles. Real bad at sunrise and at sunset. Kind of looks like hair spray residue on the windshield. Waiting for the factory rep. To look at it. Looks like it is embedded in the glass. Not a clear view when driving into the sun.
