car   Engine Burning Oil problem 1
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.

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.

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.

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.

car   Engine Burning Oil problem 11
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.

Failure Date: 10/14/2015

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.

My car was burning more than 5 quarts in less than 3k miles but after long time finally Toyota has fixed the issue. But this was happening for me from 45k miles on my car around 2009 until now. Mean while since the engine was burning which caused my catalytic converter to blow off. They should replace the catalytic converter too because this is caused by the engine oil burning in the combustion camber. Few years back they fixed my power window on the driver side but last 12- 18 months I am experiencing an issue some times the window opens on the passenger side but most of the time passenger would try to open but it wont open. I believe its an electrical issue which may have happened after they fixed on the driver side. If any accident happens then the passenger wont be able to get out which is very dangerous its an safety issue.

Toyota sent me an oil consumption test letter and upon taking it to ralph hayes Toyota to do the test I was told my car did not qualify. I performed the test myself and found it used one or more quarts of oil in the 1300 miles suggested in the letter. The car emits a large cloud of oil smoke on morning start ups.

On 3/4/15 I had an oil change at conrad's. On 3/11/15 I took my vehicle in to Toyota for the oil consumption test. At this time they asked when my last oil change was and I stated 3/4/15. They said they typically like to perform the oil change before the test but that oil change was recent enough to use. When they checked my oil they said my car arrived with no oil reading on the dipstick and that it was more than one quart low on oil. I explained how could that be I have no oil in my driveway or anywhere. The service advisor said they would need to do an oil change or they couldn't do the test. I called conrad's they stated that is not true and it's there word against Toyota. I had Toyota perform the oil change and they also sealed the engine off for the test. On 4/22/15 I returned as I had reached 1200 miles since the start of the test. At that point they stated my car passed and the oil consumption was good. In June I was headed out of town and the oil light flashed on as I exited the highway. At that point we added two quarts of oil. Now it is 8-5-15 and my son was driving the car and the engine started knocking. We added two quarts of oil but it's too late. The noise coming from inside the engine did not stop. Called Toyota today and talked to the service manager and he said I could bring it in to be looked at. I will have to tow it up there as I'm not sure if it's drivable. Next oil change was 9-7-15 or 92481 miles. Current milage 94014. It appears that the car is burning an excessive amount of oil even though Toyota claims it passed the test.

I was driving home from work, and as I was coming to a stop I heard a warning ding, looked down, and my dashboard read "low engine oil pressure. " I found that warning odd considering I have only put 2,000 miles on my car since my last oil change, I have not noticed any oil leaks in my parking spot or under my car, and I had my transmission serviced four weeks ago and there was no mention of any leaks by the service technician. I pull into the walmart parking lot close by, check my oil, and oil levels are not registering on my dipstick. I quickly bought 2 quarts of the manufacturers recommended weight of oil, put them in, and went directly to my service station. The service station took me in immediately, completed their inspection, and they informed me that they cannot find any leaks anywhere. In addition, there are no bad smells, no smoke, no signs of oil burning, nothing. They recommended an oil change, which I did. The service station gave me a 50% discount on the service because it was only 2 months and 2,000 miles since I was last there for an oil change. The mechanic suggested that I keep a case of oil in my trunk, check the oil level once a week, and add oil as needed. I think this is a lot of oil consumption, and a lot of work for such a young vehicle. My car is a 2007 Toyota Camry xle 4 cylinder with 79,004 miles as of 21 April 2015.

My car started using oil at 115,000-123,000 miles. I took it in 2-3 months ago and Toyota performed an oil consumption test. My car used 1. 6 quarts of oil during that time, it did not have any external leaks when they performed this test. I was told it was not under recall and this much oil consumption is normal. Using the much oil is not normal and it was not using oil before the 115,000 miles. I was told since it was not under recall that if I wanted the valve seals repaired it would be under my expense. This is not a new complaint about the 2007 Camry and the internet has numerous customers having excessive oil consumption and some were worse than mine. Toyota should own up to this defect and fix it.

We got a warranty enhancement on our Toyota which started to lose alot of oil we took to Toyota green in lexington ky they had on their report we done over 2196 miles when started the test. Which was completely wrong they said we only used 1/2 quart of oil so it was not losing enough oil emailed Toyota considers oil consumption excessive when it exceeds 1. 1 quart per 600 miles. My husband has been checking since took writes down mileage when he checks it had little over 900 miles on it and we had lost almost a quart of oil it liked 1/8 being a full court. Of course they say it says it in the book what they can use. I have had exactly 4 Toyotas and they have never done this. They told us that we can take back in 5000 miles or 6mo which ever comes first. This just does not sound right to me. My husband was not back there when they checked every think which next time he will be. Their exact words they said when checked when they first checked it was slightly low added one qt of oil rechecked and it was little over. When it states in the book also never to put over the amount of oil in the car.
