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.

Excessive oil consumption. Toyota says they want repair the problem unless using 1 qtr per 1000 miles. If a car was using that much oil between oil changes there would be no oil for it to run on. If the oil is depleted from the motor on the interstate and locks up, accidents will be caused. My car is using several qtrs between oil changes and this is not acceptable.

We were in the middle of an oil consumption test and there is now a hole in the side of the motor and Toyota told us that it isn't covered and it's not their fault but they will put in a used one for about $3000. How is it my fault when they seal everything up so that I can not check the oil levels?.

I have been dealing with this issue for over a year now. I have done the whole oil consumption test with the dealership and they said that the car had hardly burned off any oil after the 1,200 miles of driving. Yet when I drove the car for another 2,300 miles the oil pressure light comes on. So I have been carrying extra quarts of oil with my whenever the light comes on. Toyota said that I could have it tested again after 6 months and this would be the last one they would perform. There is never leaking oil anywhere out side of the car after it has been parked. Toyota clearly knows that there is an issue since they have posted at TSB. Just fix my car!.

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.

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.

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.

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 son, driving to back to shool, was left in the road with our 2009 Camry 5 seconds after the oil light came on. (excessive oil consumption issue known by Toyota - August 11, 2011, Toyota issued a technical service bulletin TSB to dealers) we were not aware of this problem or we would have advised him to check the oil every gas fill up to prevent problems. The car is a complete loss, but what concerns me most is that he was on a country highway with miles of open space between towns. Luckily he was just entering bedford va and made it to the entrance of a shopping center before the car died. Since he was blocking the shopping center entrance 'some random guy' helped him push the car into a parking area. Had this happened between towns and his car been stuck on the highway this could have been extremely dangerous. Both the shop we towed the car to and the company that last changed the oil investigated why the oil ran dry after only 1500 miles. Their conclusions matched in that there were no signs of faulty maintanance from the oil change nor any signs of obvious leaks. To leave people in dangerous situations because a company does not want to accept responsibility for faulty or defective equipment nor do they want to notify owners that this could be a serious issue is beyond contempt. This is pure negligence on Toyota's part not informing the car owners of this serious problem. In the meantime we need to determine what to do with a 'dead' car.

My car engine is burning is burning oil more than usual it burns about 3,75 quarts of oil every 5000 miles I went to ourisman Toyota dealer in fairfax, va and they refuse to fix it . This is a fraud because in Toyota manual it says that the car takes 4,5 quarts only but now because my engine is burning oil I have to buy more oil (3,75 quarts per 5000 miles in addition to the original amount)and add it to my engine in order to avoid blowing up my engine.

Smell burning of oil inside car. I was driving on city street. I checked oil dipstick and no trace of oil, meaning oil extremely low. I have driven car about 2800 miles since last oil change. The recommendation is to change oil every 5000 miles per Toyota owner manual. My odometer reading is 76488 miles. Toyota dealer check car last year for excessive oil consumption and said consumption is normal. I have been monitoring oil consumption myself . I found that midway between oil change( I. E. 2500 miles) , I have to add 2quarts of oil to bring level to normal.

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.

Excessive oil consumption.

Failure Date: 12/30/2016

Toyota dealer has conducted 3 separate excessive oil consumption tests on my car. Each time I was told my car "passed" and did not meet their requirements for excess oil consumption. I can only go 1200-1800 miles before I am warned that my oil is low. We recently discovered that at approximately 1200 miles after my last oil change, my car was registering "0" oil. Toyota, while knowing they have a problem, are not helping me as a Toyota owner. I am warned of low oil when I brake or turn. In a separate incidence, I recently spent over $2500 on the brake actuator and was told that even though I read about Camrys having this problem, it did not involve the non-hybrid Camry. I was driving the car when I was warned by the car of the problem.
