Engine Burning Oil problem #1
The car involved was a 2007 Toyota Camry. The VIN of the car is 4T1BE46K17_. Due to faulty engineering design the car is burning excessive engine oil and has a service bulletin that covers the car up to 60,000 miles only. The engine can fail at any time due to lack of engine oil and the catalitic converter will clog up and be putting out excessive exhaust fumes to the environment. My vehicle was purchased new and now has 149,000 miles on it and it burns more then 1 quart of oil every 1200 miles and its getting worse every day its driven. I know it is self destructing. Toyota admits the engine pistons were not designed properly. It was 01/01/2012 when this engine burning oil issue occurred.
Engine Burning Oil problem #2
The car is a 2007 Toyota Camry. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 4T1BE46K67_. Owned 2007 Camry since new, noticed initially that car burned oil and thought it was part of 'break-in' period. As time went by it progressively got worse; now at 176,000 miles it's burning about half quart every1200 miles. There are no leaks and car is not smoking. I've taken it to dealer during service appointments and mentioned it, was told it was 'normal'. I also own a '94 Toyota pickup with 249k on it; other than the starter which failed 3 years ago it's pretty much original. No leaks or burning oil and gets better gas mileage than the Camry even though they're both 4 cylinders. It all boils down to quality control, once Toyota made it to the top a few years ago they've gone downhill since. Taking this car back to dealer for this issue and let's see what they'll say. Never buying new Toyota's again. The failure date was August 1, 2009.

Engine Burning Oil problem #5
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 4T1BE46K57_. Tl- the vehicle was a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the engine consumed oil prematurely. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times for the failure. The dealer stated that the oil consumption was not great but there was not a cause to be alarmed; however, the engine gasket was replaced. The failure was not corrected. The engine continued to consumer oil prematurely. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that the a technical service bulletin was issued for the premature oil consumption. The failure mileage was 90,818. The current mileage was 140,000. Rvk. This engine burning oil problem happened on 11/01/2010.
Engine Burning Oil problem #6
The vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Camry. My check engine light came on and when I took it to the dealer, I had no oil in the car. However, I was well within the range before an oil change was due. They conducted an oil consumption test and found nothing was wrong. But every two months since then, I've had the same problem. I had another oil consumption test in January 2013. The results of each oil consumption test is said to be ok, but every two months an oil consumption test is required and my car keeps burning too much oil. Finally, the dealer told me that the engine needs to be overhauled. If this has been the problem all along, then this should have been done when I first made my complaint in December, before my warranty ran out. I was told that Toyota will not pay for my engine to be overhauled because my warranty is now expired. I'm forced to either pay $4,100 to overhaul the engine and hope that the problem will be fixed, or buy a new car. Toyota should be responsible for this since the problem began before my warranty ran out. Toyota has exclusively changed my oil for 6 years and was aware that the car was consuming too much oil. They should have suggested the engine overhaul during my warranty. It was faulty on their behalf not to mention the severity of this issue until after the warranty is expired. This prompted me to conducted research and I found that hundreds of people are having this issue. A recall on this engine should be made. Toyota offers no assistance in anytype of solution. If you can advise of any help I can get, please let me know. Thanks. This issue happened on Monday, December 10, 2012.

Engine Burning Oil problem #10
The car was a 2007 Toyota Camry. My 2007 Camry is consuming around 3. 5 quarts between 5000miles oil change intervals. This consumption is quite high by any standard . I believe that this is some sort of of a manufacturing/design flaw which comes up once the vehicle comes out of warranty period. There are no leaks or visible signs of oil loss, I hate to say the engine is burning the oil and polluting the environment. Toyota should acknowledge and fix this problem for all Camry customers. This engine burning oil problem happened on 06/06/13.
Engine Burning Oil problem #11
The car is a 2007 Toyota Camry solara. The VIN of this vehicle was 4T1CE30P37_. My 2007 Toyota solara coupe l4-2. 4l (2az-fe) has the engine oil consumption problem. This was confirmed by my service center and is in regard to the technical service bulletin t-sb-0094-11. The engine loses oil at rapid rate and gasoline gets in the oil, which could cause a fire. This is a serious engine problem which should be a recall. Because Toyota lists this problem only as a technical service bulletin, they say they are not required to contact the vehicle owner to make them aware of this problem. The repairs needed require major engine/piston work costing $5,000. They will not pay for this if the vehicle has over 60,000 miles. Because I cannot afford $5,000, and I need the car to get to work, I am stuck with a useless and dangerous vehicle where the engine will seize up and die. Who knows what tragedy this will cause if I am in the vehicle at the time. It was Saturday, May 11, 2013 when this engine burning oil issue happened.

Engine Burning Oil problem #13
The vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Camry. There is excessive oil consumption for this vehicle. I got an oil and filter change on 2/9/13 because the low oil light was flashing. I drove my car back and forth to work and home as normal which is about 15 miles each way. My oil light is back on indicating low oil and the dipstick also indicates low oil. Today is 3/4/13. It has not even been 3000 miles since my last oil change. I am afraid to drive this car because I do not know if the engine will fail at any given moment. There are several complaints on the internet indicating other owners are also having this issue. This appears to be a defect with the car. Please address this issue with Toyota. It is not safe to have an oil change and not know at any time that your engine could be running on low/no oil. This issue happened on February 9, 2013.

Engine Burning Oil problem #16
The car is a 2007 Toyota Camry. Bought this Camry new in 2007 for my wife. I've maintained it as per mfg schedule. After having oil change done at around 65000 miles, I was driving vehicle & noticed oil pressure warning light coming on intermittently. Upon arriving home, checked dip stick & there was no oil on stick!!. This was after oil change 2000 miles ago. I took vehicle to a different service station to get car looked at & a new oil change. The tech found no oil leaks. . He mentioned that he had heard of Camrys having excessive oil consumption problems. Went on internet, found a lot of other owners of Camrys, this age & with around the same mileage having the same problem. I haven't taken it to the dealership as I don't want to be told "that this is normal:, "that expensive repairs are necessary" but don't solve the problem. Please add me to the list of very unhappy & concerned owners. Given Toyota's track record,I don't have any trust or faith that they will do the right thing for their customers unless forced to. This engine burning oil issue occurred Tuesday, October 2, 2012.
Engine Burning Oil problem #17
The vehicle involved was a 2007 Toyota Camry. I had my oil changed about 5,000 miles previously to a moment when my oil light came on barely, and then flashed back off. I decided to check it, just in case, and found that I was totally without oil. I went to Toyota and they informed me that it was simply because I had waited longer than six months to have an oil change. I got the oil change, and the problem continued. They then began an "oil consumption check" where I bring the car in every 1000 miles to see if it has consumed too much oil. At this point in my oil consumption check, after about 3000 miles, I've burned about 1. 5 quarts oil, according to them. The car now has about 45k on it, and I say it shouldn't be burning so much oil. The car also doesn't start as responsively as it ought to. The oil also looks very dirty. Toyota continues to tell me this is normal, but many customers are having similar issues I've noticed in online forums, etc. , and I suspect Toyota is avoiding taking responsibility for an engine problem. This issue happened on Oct. 29, 2011.
Engine Burning Oil problem #18
The vehicle was a 2007 Toyota Camry. The VIN of the car is 4T1BE46K97_. I bought 07 Camry from local Toyota dealership in 2007. From the start I've noticed the car was consuming oil. There is no trace of leak anywhere but was taking oil. Without much thought, I would add oil as needed. As the mileage start to rack up, the problem is too obvious and it is getting worse. At the beginning, I did not know how much oil was being consumed. Then I stared to use ticker oil hoping the problem would go away. It did not and I am still using ticker oil (5w20 to 5w30) oil consumption problem, I think is progressively getting worse. The car now has 65,000 miles and late last summer (2011) I've seen oil adding every month (about every 1,000 miles). Local dealer said a quart every 1,000 miles is normal. Service manager is saying that Toyota stated the consuming a quart every 1,000 mile is normal. So go complain to Toyota corp is what they said. I felt like I was talking to a brick wall. Dealership said I should go through oil consumption test, which I stated the process in December of 2011. They had put in half inch above the full mark on the dipstick, which I would have though they would have noted this. After I come back after 1,000 miles, oil consumption was there but they claim 1/2 quart in 1,000 miles. Not considering how much they have over filled or had any idea of that fact. I started looking into this in web and also learned that dealership uses additive to not consume oil in consumption testing. I cannot win over dishonest experts at the dealership. This is a serious problem. I cannot sell this car as I am not about to lie about the oil consumption to a buyer. Who would want to buy my car that consumes a quart every 1,000 mile. I can tell a buyer "this is normal in Toyota standard"; would a buyer understand this? Toyota is trying to turn away their problem onto their customer. This problem occurred on Thursday, May 10, 2007.
Engine Burning Oil problem #19
The car is a 2007 Toyota Camry. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 4T1BE46K27_. At about 75000 miles my Camry started burning 1+ quarts of oil between oil changes. Now at 84000 miles it is burning 1. 5+ quarts between oil changes. With this increased excessive burn rate the car must now be monitored regularly to prevent engine from running out oil and ceasing up the engine. From discussions on several websites this is a known problem which effects a lot of Camrys and which Toyota refuses to correct. They state a quart burned in 1200 miles is normal which is a really stupid thing to say. Toyota once again is failing to step up to owning the problem. Also, as all these engines are needlessly burning thousands of quarts of oil due to low reliability parts, we are very much creating a lot of air pollution. I wonder what the epa thinks of this?. It was Aug. 6, 2010 when this engine burning oil issue occurred.
