car   Engine Burning Oil problem 1
Failure Date: 06/15/2017

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.

Engine excessive oil consumption.

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.

The engine oil has burned up. Have almost no oil left after getting oil change less than 3000 miles ago. The is no oil leakage on driveway where car is parked. Oil filter is on tight and oil cap is on. My wife said she was getting a warning light of some kind that day so I checked the oil when she told me. I took my car, bought and added 4 qts of high mileage oil and zmax treatment to minimize any potential damage.

Failure Date: 03/29/2017

We own a 2007 Toyota Camry le. We have always had it regularly serviced by the dealership it was purchased from. Around 145,000 miles, it started burning oil rapidly, around 1 quart every 1,500 miles. I started researching and found that Toyota is aware of this situation but, unless the issue happens within 100,000 miles, will not cover the repair. This needs to be remedied as they know there is an issue with their vehicle.

I have an excessive engine oil consumption problem so on March 2016, I go to the dealer to check and said that my car pass the test without any suggestion to follow on, I still has this problem and even more serious so I go back to check then the dealer said once pass is not their issue ,I wonder what is the standard the pass or not pass and I call the main Toyota office to ask for help and they said ,I can ask for the second test but I just pass their extended warranty that is just pass half a month ago. My question is I know my car has the problem but I has no suggestion what to do and they keep delay the care of my car until the warranty is gone . Actually my first approach this problem is still under the warranty period but that is not count?? I do not trust Toyota car any more and I am so worry about the safety of myself everyday while I driving this car. My car is just 10 years pass and driving only 97320mileages when I ask them about my worry second time. Hope any good suggest and help from you otherwise I need to give up my car.

Failure Date: 03/07/2017

I purchased this car used a few years ago. It has had a high oil consumption the entire time. It has been extremely aggravating and costly putting oil in the car weekly. As a single parent, I didn't take the car to be fixed because of financial reasons. I'm just finding out about the extended warranty and the time has passed for me to take advantage of the warranty. Toyota knowing about the issue makes it even worse. This should have been a recall instead of an extended warranty. I was considering buying a new Toyota until I read this. This makes me distrust Toyota because of the underhanded way they're treating their customers about an issue they knew about.

Oil consumption is really bad. 1 quart of oil every 200-300 miles. No visible oil leaks under car.

Failure Date: 02/24/2017

I discovered that Toyota has had issues with excessive oil consumption in certain model years. I have a 2007 Toyota Camry xle which was listed as one of the vehicles. This is my 4th Toyota of which I have put on over 1 million miles between these vehicles. Now with this 2007 which now has 211,000 mi. I find I am having to add oil every 1000 mi. Or the oil light comes on. I change the oil every 3000 mi. Toyota told me nothing can be done because the extended warranty that was given expired in oct. 2016. I bought the vehicle in July, 2015 with 146,000 mi. On it. I understand that a letter was sent out in may, 2015 regarding this matter. That apparently went to the previous owner or the dealership. Now after 4 Toyotas. . . . 1 million miles. . . . They say nothing can be done! I don't agree.

My 2007 Toyota Camry ce with the 2. 4l 4 cylinder engine is consuming engine oil at an excessive rate. Vehicle is currently undergoing Toyota factory "excessive oil consumption test", and showing low oil on dipstick. On line research has indicated many owners learning either their dealer or Toyota, or both are hesitant or refusing to perform corrective action at no cost to the current owner. On line recommendation is that this complaint should be filed with your agency along with two other entities involved in monitoring Toyota motor company and Toyota dealer response and remedial action.

So after loving my 2007 Toyota Camry for many good years, my heartache started when it began using oil to the tune of visible loss on dipstick at 800 miles. I was shocked to find little or no oil on the dip stick so I started watching it closely. I confirmed that my 2007 Toyota Camry car burns a bit more than 2 quarts every 800-1000 miles. .

Excessive oil consumption issue. Toyota will now offer any coverage or warranty. Issue just started showing itself this past fall and once I learned of the technical service bulletin, Toyota said it was past their 10/31/16 date and the fact that the care was past the 10 year pis date (by 4 days). They now say this is a wear and tear issue. There is something wrong here with this many problems for many, many Camry owners and no type of recall was ever issued. Very frustrating and very disappointing in Toyota. Have had no other issues with this car or with Toyota in my 10 years of ownership. Will now never purchase another Toyota again.

Excessive oil consumption. Toyota dealership tested it and my car failed the test. They tell me I need new rings and piston's. Engine rebuild. They told me I am on the list but it could take up to a year for the parts to come from the parent company. So if my engine blows up between now and then what happens then?.

Failure Date: 09/26/2016

After 1200 miles, I took the car back to Toyota for second part of their oil consumption test, and was told it didn't use any oil. After picking up my car up from my trusted mechanic (who said 2/3 of Toyota's recommended repairs totaling over $1600 were not true), I was told he had to add oil b/c it was low. This is yet another example of Toyota lying to customers so they do not have to incur costs or issue a valid recall. They claim burning oil is "normal", and only if their "test" proves so, they would replace the piston rings - they are lying about these test results to avoid having to do the expensive repair.

After Toyota completing an oil consumption test they informed us they add 1 qt of oil and then measure how low it was after the added oil in the 1200 mile test and concluded the 1/2qt low was not enough to warrant repairs to the engine, knowing they have a defect in the engine piston rings it was actually 1 1/2 qt low in total and they wont fix the problem and said it could cost us in the area of 3-4,000$.

90,000 and now burns 1 qt oil every 1200 miles. Oil light comes on at 3 quarts low. Shouldn't it come on well before that? like one qt low.

My father-in-law is a auto mechanic. He changes the oil in my 2007 Toyota Camry every 2500-3500 miles. This is well before the recommended 5,000 mile service reminder light comes on. The car always burned oil but over the last year he has noticed that the car is burning significantly more oil. He recommended that I take the car to the Toyota dealer for a oil consumption test. I took the car to route 44 Toyota in raynham MA for the oil consumption test. I brought the car in with 147,212 miles for the test and a oil change. I was told to bring the car back between 148,212 - 148,512 miles. I noticed that after I original brought the car in for the the test, the car would idles at 800 rpm when stopped, after the oil change and test the car idle at 500-600 rpm. I brought the car back to route 44 Toyota for phase ii of the oil consumption test with 148,290 miles. The serviced advisor said that the car passed the oil consumption test and was only down 1/2 a quart of oil. The car burns more than a quart of oil every 1,000 miles but the dealer is telling me that it doesn't. I also noticed that the car was back to idling at 800 rpm when stopped.

Oil consumption. I had the oil changed at the dealership in may when I started noticing consumption. I happened to check the oil a couple of weeks later and it wasn't even touching the stick, so I added 2 quarts of oil and took it back to the dealer and asked them if they even changed the oil. They of course said yes and we kept noticing it burning quite a bit of oil. I took it to a my mechanic and he immediately knew Toyota had a recall on this model burning oil and advised us to take it to the dealership to conduct their test. We did the test which was drive it 1200 miles and bring it back and of course they said it only burnt a little over a half of a quart. I have been putting oil in this car most of the summer sometimes less than 1200 miles well over a quart. I have read several blogs and see where Toyota has been sued over this issue. I just want my car fixed. Thank you.

My Camry has check engine light on and oil needed to be changed once again in less than 3 months. Toyota has a recall on oil burning up but they checked last time and said it's okay. Evidently it's not. The mechanic recommended brake booster for the engine light issue which costs from $750-$1,200 which is hard to afford. This kind of issue can cost your life. Toyota needs to recall this and fix it since so many other people have the same issue.

I had problems with my cars oil consumption and was never notified from Toyota that there was a recall back in may 2015 for engine oil consumption repair. The shop is now telling me I have a blown piston from what they can hear. I have records that I never missed an oil change and even have proof from firestone complete care when my car was checked for oil leaks. There were none found. Toyota is refusing to repair my vehicle because they said it's too late to do an oil consumption test. I also sent Toyota proof of my oil changes from firestone dated 12/13/14, 4/11/15, 6/29/15, 8/22/15, 10/08/15, 11/14/15 and 1/3/16. My car was towed into community Toyota on 3/23/16.

Low oil due to overver-consumption: my car engine overheated and almost burnt because of oil overconsumption and I had to take the car and get oil change and got a report proving the very low oil level.
