I bought this car brand new. For the past 4 years I've experienced more that average engine oil consumption. I contacted the Toyota dealership last year regarding this. They informed me that my car qualified for the recall on excessive oil consumption test. When the first test results came out I was informed that my car passed the test and that it didn't qualify for the recall repairs. When the following oil change was due I took my car to another Toyota dealership just to get the second opinion on the oil consumption test. I informed them that this would be the second time I was requesting the oil consumption test for my vehicle. Surprisingly the results came out the same way, that my car passed the test. As of recent, the situation has become worse. I'm supposed to turn in my car at the Toyota dealership for an oil change every 5,000 miles per Toyota standards, but after about 700 to 800 miles my engine begins giving noises when I turn on the car, which over time I came to learn that this kind of noise is an indication that the oil level is very low and I need to add more oil. My car is not leaking any oil, it's consuming more oil than how it's supposed to. I am considering doing the oil consumption test to another reputable dealership with no connections with Toyota to see how the results are going to be. In the meantime I would like to request a help from the NHTSA because I believe Toyota needs to be accountable to their actions. Thank you.

Excessive oil consumption. I was never made aware that my Toyota had this problem until I reached 100,000 which just happened recently. According to Toyota, my option for coverage ended 8/2016. I'm being punished for having conservative miles. Criminal and deceiptful.

Toyota issued TSB for "excessive oil consumption". I went to the dealership for their 'test' (I. E. , more than 1 qt of oil in 1,200 miles) and just barely "passed". But the problem grows worse over time and now burns oil extremely quickly. But Toyota told me today that since the care is now more than 10 years old, there is nothing they will do for me. Why won't Toyota just do a "recall" to fix this obvious problem?.

Am a person who always get my oil change on time since I bought my car. However, over the last year, I have notice the following issues: my �oil pressure� light come on halfway through your maintenance schedule. My engine burn through as much as 1 quart of oil in 1,200 miles I took my vehicle into the Toyota dealership on August 10, 2017 located on 1000 blairs bridge rd, lithia springs, GA 30122. They checked my vehicle and told me the following: I was told that my engine burning through oil is �normal� and �nothing to be alarmed of� they acknowledge damaged, oil-deprived engine only to deny warranty coverage; they quoted me over 3,000 to get fixed two weeks later, I checked my oil and I was completely out of oil. Over time, this issue is getting worst. I have contacted Toyota corporate office with no resolution; I continue to leave messages. I would like to have my car fixed since this issue is common in 2007 solora's.

Bought car used a year ago. Had oil consumption test done at 74,000 miles within time frame allowed. Was told engine was good. Now, at 80,000 miles oil is at bottom tip of oil dip stick. I called dealer where oil consumption test was done. Was told "we only added a quart. . . " at test's conclusion. I was not told at the time of the oil consumption test's conclusion that a "quart was added. " since I was not told a quart was added, I wasn't aware I had to watch my oil. Upon starting the vehicle, oil light flashed briefly but I couldn't make-out what it was. Following day, upon starting vehicle, it flashed again. Another day and it stays on very briefly but long enough for me to figure that it was the oil light. I let car sit on flat surface for an hour, checked oil and it just touched tip of dipstick. I added two quarts of oil.

The engine locked up and failed while on a over night trip leaving passengers stranded in the dark in the middle of the night. The oil light came on only minutes before, not allowing for adequate time to intervene. We were unaware at the time of the engines problem with excessive burning of oil. The garage mechanics were expecting to find an oil leak as the problem for the engine burning up and were surprised to find no leak. The car was purchased 8 months ago, pre-owned with 72,000 miles on it. When the engine failed it had 89,000 miles on it and $9000 left on the loan. Reluctant to pay thousands to have the engine replaced since the engine is known to have this recurring problem.

I recently bought a 2007toyota Camry December 2016 and ever since I bought it, it has been consuming too much oil. It would burn my full tank of oil at around 1k-1. 2k miles after an oil change. I,'m afraid that this much oil consumption will eventually lead to wrecking the motor and probably causing an accident. Toyota had a warranty for this type of issue but it expired last year. And I had no idea about this until just recently searching for this type of problem. To fix this problem in which I was not aware of in the first place, the only solution to this would be a recall.

My car is excessively burning oil. I have a 2007 Toyota Camry le. I have my oil change every 3,00 to 5,000 miles at the Toyota dealer. My oil level would go low between oil changes. My husband would constantly check and add oil between oil changes. My husband asked me to ask the Toyota dealer to check to see if I had an oil leak. The dealer told me I did not have an oil leak and they did not know why my oil level was going low between oil changes. After my husband did some research, he found out the 2007 Toyota Camry has a problem with their engines excessively burning oil. Toyota and the dealer knew there is an issue with that type of engine burning oil excessively and they did not tell me! who is going to fix this, it's not my fault?!.
