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.

The engine has failed an oil consumption test. I did not know this was an issue, but now have been told I am outside of the window that they will repair. I did not know there was a window.

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.

My car is consuming lot of oil, for every 5000 miles oil change I noticed that there is not a single drop of oil left in the engine, I had a oil consumption test at longo Toyota dealer in January, they asked me to come when the I drove the miles between 1100-1300, I took my car at 1128 miles and after the test they said everything is normal and no further test is needed, I said what are you saying I see not a single drop of oil left in the engine, they are saying in order to fail the test 1 qt of oil should be consumed for every 1200 miles but my car consume 3/4 qt of oil hence test is passed. . . . What the heck is going on why is it normal to consume 3/4 qt of oil, they failed to realize that there is no oil when oil change is occurred, and now the other problem is I can retake the test only after 6 months or 5k miles on the vehicle but my 10 year warranty is expiring in sept, not sure why Toyota put the 10 year warranty they should cover the warranty atleast 15 years. . . I am sick of Toyota never going to purchase any Toyota vehicles, they dont stand behind their vehicles . . .

My 2009 Toyota Camry is part of the ze7- warranty enhancement program for excessive oil consumption. The primary coverage for this issue was good until October 31, 2016 and secondary cover until 150,000 miles or 10 years from the date of first use (whichever comes first). My car did not experience this issue until late November and when the car was at 149,500 miles. I contacted Toyota customer service (case #1611293174) and was advised that since the vehicle would be under 150,000 when the oil consumption test was initiated it still met the service guidelines. I took the vehicle to the dealership to initiate the test with the car still under 150,000 miles. The dealership contacted Toyota and Toyota advised that since the car would be over 150,000 mile when the car finished the test it would not be covered. I contacted Toyota again referencing my case number and they verified what I was told by the customer service rep but now were telling me it would not be covered. This is a know issue by Toyota and they are doing everything in their power to get around repairing a defective part. Now I have to file a lawsuit in order to get the vehicle repaired. The car has diminished value due to this known issue and I have to either cover the repair cost or deal with the issue which includes constantly checking my oil to make sure it doesn't run out and completely kill the engine. This is unacceptable. I would have never purchased this car had I known about this issue.

Consuming excessive oil in two-three months period. I got low oil pressure light on and off when I hit the break hard, then engine check light was on and off. I went to nearest auto store and checked engine oil. It was completely empty, I mean dry. I just couldn't believe it since Toyota dealer checked oil consumption test and my car passed the test a few month ago. I was told the auto shop worker that I was lucky because it was so close to burn up the engine. I checked online and many people has the same issue on 2009 Camry. Toyota is aware of the issue as well. It should be a recall and it should be fixed by Toyota.

The engine oil light had come on indicating my oil was low. I had a scheduled oil change appt. At a Toyota dealership in a few weeks so I checked the dipstick, which indicated the oil was low, and added two quarts. At my appointment on 11/19/16, I stated the oil issue and the service advisor started the oil consumption test. When I returned to get the results from the test on 1/2/17, it was revealed my car had failed and the oil was extremely low. I am told by a former certified Toyota mechanic, that their standards for failing oil consumption tests are very high, so to fail a test is a huge concern. The test was ran when my mileage was at 151,499. The oil consumption issue had obviously started well before the test was ran. However, since my car was out of the 10 yr/150k mile warranty, Toyota would not cover the cost of repair. I called the Toyota customer care line twice and they told me legally they could not cover the cost. They refused to acknowledge that the problem started before 151,499 miles. I called the Toyota region to see if they will fix it in good will since I bought the car in good faith and always had it regularly maintenanced at a Toyota dealership. I was still told no, they legally couldn't help me. I was never notified that my car had a potential for excessive oil consumption. The only recall notice I have ever received from them was to get extra grease put on a switch for my window motor. If they had alerted me sooner that my engine needed to be tested or if the service department had told me about the recall for similar cars, then I would not be stuck driving a dangerous vehicle. I have to put a quart of oil in every week just to make sure it is drivable. I am paying for the repair out of pocket hoping that there is no damage to my engine block. I do not want to sell this car since it is a potential danger and put someone else's life at risk.

Motor oil is burning excessively I have to check the oil every weekend and the dealer says is normal, I think is not normal to keep adding oil when there is no leak. Dashboard is practically melting it was reported back in may because in the summer time it gets very sticky the dealer says it will take months or a year before they could fix it. Radio has a malfunction it was replaced back in 2014 because the screen turn black and not able to turn it on or off. In 2016 the radio is having problems again for the same reason and the dealer won't replace it anymore because the warranty is finished.
