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. .

Failure Date: 11/03/2016

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.

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.

Failure Date: 05/21/2016

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.

Failure Date: 03/18/2016

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.

Known oil consumption issue that Toyota has cancelled warranty in the middle of my testing. Car uses over a quart every 1000 miles. Horrible.

Failure Date: 02/01/2016

Burning oil at a high rate. I have to add oil every 500 miles or so. We have always followed a plan of changing the oil every 3 months or about 4000 miles. Since about Feb 2016, this high consumption issue has existed on this vehicle. We've owned the vehicle since 2007.

My car has an over oil consumption problem. Before the car is due for an oil change it is out of oil completely and due to this problem my car starting overheating and it cracked the head gasket. Toyota has a recall for the 4 cylinder models for this same issue but the 6 cylinder models are excluded. Despite the fact that I told them every time j went to their service center. Now I have to buy a new engine for the vehicle that I just bought.

Tl-the owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that while driving at 35 mph, there was an noise coming from the passenger front side of the vehicle. The vehicle started to lose speed, the contact costed over to the side of the road. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the oil tube broke and burned the engine and it would needed to replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 45,300. Aw.

Failure Date: 11/16/2015

Toyota has a recall on a number of vehicles because of a piston ring design flaw. Last year they tested my 2007 Camry and said it was ok. Actually, it burned 1 quart of oil (I just found out from customer care) but Toyota says it must burn 1. 5 quarts of oil to qualify. I was told that the car was ok. My oil light went on less than 2000 miles in to my last oil change. The car was 3 quarts low on oil! the dealership says that it definitely has the design flaw--but they have to run another test to verify what I have told them. Now here is the zinger---I have one week to drive 1100 miles. That is because Toyota has said this recall ends then. Somehow I am responsible for their engineering design flaw, their inability to diagnose my vehicle the first time, and their unilateral setting of an expiration date. I do not believe that this is fair or reasonable. Perhaps they will see the light or extend the final date for me? I cannot drive 1100 miles this week. I would if my schedule allowed it.

My vehicle not only got an extremely sticky dashboard but it also started burning oil in between oil changes. I had every recall taken care of as soon as I received it at & also kept up with all of the maintenance on my vehicle at a certified mechanic shop. I have all of my service records & witnesses. The end of 2015 my car started burning an excessive amount of oil in between oil changes. I ended up taking it to the mechanic & he was adding oil in between oil changes stating it was normal for it to burn oil. They also went with a thicker oil to try to fix it. I was also adding oil whenever it started getting low. Well my car overheated & cracked my head gasket. After going onto Toyotas website & typing my VIN number in, it states there aren't any recalls or service campaigns. I started saving money up to have my engine replaced so it's been sitting for months. After realizing I couldn't possibly afford it, I went online to get blue book values to sell it. I found out there were 2 tsbs covering my dashboard & my engine burning oil. They are saying something was mailed to me even though I know if I would have received anything I would have had it fixed immediately. After contacting an attorney who had a class action lawsuit against Toyota, he stated to me that nothing was mailed out to customers. After contacting 2 Toyota dealerships & Toyota service, they both ran my VIN # & it shows the warranty enhancement for both problems. Customers did not have access to this unless they called the dealership. Toyota service stated to me the only way they would replace anything to do with my engine is if an oil consumption test is run, well my engine is burned up. If my car was being worked on by a certified mechanic & I have service records proving all of my recalls & maintenance was done, they should honor that. There are lots of complaints from other owners stating the same things.

My 2007 Toyota Camry xle is burning oil and I always have to be adding oil, I took it to Toyota dealership after I received a notice on the mail about my car having a warranty problem, excessive oil consumption. They said that the car was fine and they did an oil consumption test and I took it back after 1200 miles and according to them there was no problem, this started more than a year ago and I'm still having the same problem.

Excessive oil consumption car has about 88,000 miles and the oil light came on about halfway between oil changes. I took it to perryville tire to have oil checked--was told I had none. Took it back to the dealer and they did an oil consumption test, which they told me it passed after they added 1 quart of oil and that this is normal oil consumption. This is ridiculous--I have owned many vehicles and none burned oil at this rate. Normal--bah, humbug. I do have the extended warranty which covers up to 100,000 miles. I do believe Toyota is trying to run out the warranty.

This problem has been recognized by Toyota since 2014. How they don't have these parts yet?.
