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.

When I took my 2008 Camry in to the dealer for an oil change they found no oil in the car. They said I needed to take an "oil consumption test". They did something to my car and I drove for another 2000 miles and brought it back in. I was told it had failed the oil consumption test and that I would be put on a waiting list for repair which is covered by an extended warranty from Toyota. I was told the wait could be as long as six months and that in the meantime if my car runs out of oil and anything happens to the engine, the warranty would be void. My car might have oil in the morning and the be completely out of oil by the afternoon. I feel I should be given a loan car to drive while I am waiting for these repairs. I contacted Toyota directly in California and they would not approve this request. The parts needed for the repair are having to be manufactured and this takes months. My dealer told me there are people waiting since last year for repairs. I'm just asking for a car to drive while I wait so that I don't have to drive mine and risk voiding the warranty.

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.

We have owned this car since new and followed the maintenance schedule religiously. The car is at 76,000 miles and yesterday I discovered that the car had burned through 2. 5 quarts of oil less than 3000 miles from the last oil change. Additionally the slave cylinder is leaking after the transmission was replaced at 23000 miles. Prior to the last 3000 miles, the car had never burned through oil between oil changes. Upon researching the issue I found that the previous generation of this engine had piston issues that Toyota eventually started fixing for free (after multiple class action suits). I took it in to my dealership and they recommended an entire engine overhaul to fix the pistons ($5000) of which they cover nothing. In addition they confirmed the slave cylinder was leaking and that the transmission would need to be overhauled a 2nd time ($2,600). Unfortunately I purchased this car in manual, and Toyota barely sold any of these transmissions which has resulted in no acknowledgement of any manufacturer defects. While I understand the transmission is poorly designed but considered a wear item, I can not understand how the pistons on a car with regular maintenance would give out at 76,000 miles.

I was driving and my car's low engine oil light came on. I brought it to Toyota and this employee helped me pour in 2. 5 quarts of oil. This is in between the maintenance scheule. After getting an oil consumption test from Toyota, the employee told me that Toyota's standard is that we can lose a quart of oil for every 1200 miles. I brought my car back to them after 1,000 miles. They said that my car passed the test, I noticed that they added a quart of oil to my car. This is so not normal! I just received the extended warranty notice a couple of weeks ago. It defeats the purpose of notifying us if Toyota denies that our cars have the oil consumption problem. This powerful company is bullying everyone. A lawsuit does not help get our cars fixed. Please recall the cars. Otherwise, you are letting Toyota get away with bullying behavior. Thanks!.

Purchased a used 2008 Camry on 7/15/15. The car was serviced for the oil change right before I got it and I still had over 900 miles left before I hit the 3000 mile mark to have the oil change done. We checked the oil and it was completely dry. Not a drip on the dip stick! I think it's safe to say that this vehicle has a engine oil consumption issue.

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.

Car had no oil left in it after 5000 miles and just getting oil change at that time. Was told my 2. 4 engine is known to "eat" oil per service tech and Toyota is doing an "oil consumption test" on the engine after I put 1200-1300 miles on new engine oil. Car went through 4. 5 qts of oil in 5000 miles! not burning out exhaust and not leaking anywhere. Service tech advised this is known problem. According to them, after "oil comsumption test" if my car "eats" less than a quart in 1100 miles that is acceptable! that is not. I know 20 year old cars that dont burn or leak or "eat" oil at oil. This known issue with the Toyota 2. 4 engine should be recalled and owners given a new engine or compensation. I cannot keep putting oil in car every 1100 miles! Toyota needs to be held accountable for a defect they are aware of. I was lucky to not have taken my car on long trip and have engine seize up on me on highway causing a possible crash. Please help with this problem. I know others have similiar complaints with NHTSA and also other websites and wanted to bring mine to your attention also. Thank you very much!!.

I purchased my 2009 Toyota Camry in 2008 after graduating college. I have always serviced my car as required per the Toyota manufacturers guide to have it serviced every 5,000 miles. The last three or four times I had to take the car at least 500-1000 miles before the required service mileage. About 90% of the service maintenance was performed at the Toyota dealership. Per the Toyota service package, the technicians are suppose to do a through inspection of the car to notify any areas of concern to the customer. I read a TSB that was issued by Toyota in November 2011 regarding excessive oil consumption due to a defective seal or piston ring. Recently before I hit the road for vacation, I was checking my tire pressure and decided to check my oil levels. The car was not suppose to be serviced for another 500 miles and their was no oil on the dipstick. . Nothing came out. I took my car to the nearest jiffy lube and asked the mechanic to look under the engine to see if there was an external oil leak. The mechanic checked and said no oil was leaking on the outside. He told me there could possibly be engine oil burning up, which is why I pulled the Toyota TSB. This is very concerning because I wouldn't want my engine to lock up driving at a high speed down the freeway. Toyota should be held accountable for the manufacturing defect and should investigate the matter. There is a class action lawsuit against Toyota for the above matter and I will be sharing my story. Thank you.

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.
