Toyota dropped the ball and didn't recall this engine oil consumption issue. I check recalls frequently. Now I'm stuck with a car that drinks a gallon of oil every 700-1200k miles. Even though they did extend the warranty to 10yrs/150k miles, this issue usually happens after then. So they knew what they was doing. My car is going to fail the test but Toyota dealers tell me that Toyota is going to help with any of the repair costs. Talk about pissed. Toyota and Lexus just lost a loyal customer.

Recently I have noticed that as I am applying the brake or taking a curve my oil light comes on. After doing some research I found there is an issue of oil consumption that is known. My car averages using a quart of oil every 800-1200 miles. This is not normal at all.

Excessive consumption of motor oil. I have taken it to the dealer twice. They have sealed the oil gauge and when I return they have told me that consumption is normal; it is not. Every month I have to put a quart & a third to keep the vehicle at the mid-mark of the oil dip stick.

Excessive oil consumption. This is actually my father's car. His name is philip e. Myhre and he has asked me brian s. Myhre to act on his behalf. Philip is 91 years old and does not use computers. I talked to a Toyota customer service representative about their "warranty enhancement notification" letter # ze7and was told that my fathers car does not apply because Toyota put a cut-off at 150,000 miles or 10 years from first date of issue. My father is the second owner of this car and he has owned it for about 2. 5 - 3 years. When he purchased it, it had about 130,000 miles on it, it now has 158,3000 miles. He has never received a notice or letter from Toyota notifying him of oil consumption issues. I was driving with him in late January of 2018 when the oil warning light lit up on the dash, I immediately pulled over as I knew he had just had the oil & filter changed at the local jiffy lube about 1500 miles prior to what the mileage read. I was very angry when I saw it didn't register on the dipstick and I had to add about 1 1/4 quarts of oil. I thought jiffy lube shorted him on oil and I then started changing it myself. I keep a close watch on the oil consumption and have found that I need to add about one quart every 1200 miles. The engine is the 2az-fe, 2. 4l and is involved with the oil consumption problem that Toyota has acknowledged, but will not seem to help since the car has over 150,000 miles on it. As a consumer I think this is wrong on Toyota's part and that they should stand behind their product when it is their fault for knowingly using faulty parts/ material, then leaving the consumer to absorb the cost. Brian s. Myhre.

On numerous occasions when coming to a stop by car will shut off. The car when sitting has a rough idle (400-500 rpm) with all heat/ac etc turned off but can vary at times of an idle of 700-900rpm notably when a/c is on it drags the rpms down to 300-400 and will shudder at a stop. There's no codes on diagnostics, no noises or lack of routine maintenance. May be worth mentioning this vehicle "passed' the excessive oil consumption but I am still adding a qt of oil every 1200-1800 miles. A search of the web shows this to be a common issue but no resolution. Help?.

I had received the extended warranty coverage letter for the excessive oil consumption more than a year ago. No issues until possibly October 2017 when oil maintenance light kept coming on event after oil change after just 1000 miles (usually every 5000 miles before). Then got car checked out and mechanic found almost no oil in car. Car was driving poorly with sometimes stalling. I got an oil change and car worked fine for 2 weeks and had same problem. Again, by this time, I remembered the warranty and went to Toyota dealership where the told me the warranty was not valid due to car being over 10 years old. Anyway they filled car with oil and told me to return in 1100-1300 miles for the results of the test which I will later know. I don't have much hope of getting this fixed under warranty.

The contact owns a 2009 Toyota Camry. While driving 60 mph, the vehicle turned off unexpectedly. There were no warning indicators illuminated. The contact also noticed that the vehicle burned oil rapidly. The vehicle was taken to maplewood Toyota (2873 maplewood dr, maplewood, mn 55109 (651) 482-1322) prior to the failure and was informed that the vehicle failed an oil consumption test. The dealer stated that the vehicle needed the gasket and pistons replaced. The vehicle could not be repaired free of charge under Toyota's warranty enhancement due to the vehicle having a salvage title. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted after the failure and stated that there was a warranty enhancement for oil consumption, but the failure was not a safety recall. Since the vehicle was a salvage title, Toyota stated that it was not eligible for warranty enhancements. The failure mileage was 230,000.

I bought this car brand new. For the past 4 years I've experienced more that average engine oil consumption. I contacted the Toyota dealership last year regarding this. They informed me that my car qualified for the recall on excessive oil consumption test. When the first test results came out I was informed that my car passed the test and that it didn't qualify for the recall repairs. When the following oil change was due I took my car to another Toyota dealership just to get the second opinion on the oil consumption test. I informed them that this would be the second time I was requesting the oil consumption test for my vehicle. Surprisingly the results came out the same way, that my car passed the test. As of recent, the situation has become worse. I'm supposed to turn in my car at the Toyota dealership for an oil change every 5,000 miles per Toyota standards, but after about 700 to 800 miles my engine begins giving noises when I turn on the car, which over time I came to learn that this kind of noise is an indication that the oil level is very low and I need to add more oil. My car is not leaking any oil, it's consuming more oil than how it's supposed to. I am considering doing the oil consumption test to another reputable dealership with no connections with Toyota to see how the results are going to be. In the meantime I would like to request a help from the NHTSA because I believe Toyota needs to be accountable to their actions. Thank you.

Excessive oil consumption. I was never made aware that my Toyota had this problem until I reached 100,000 which just happened recently. According to Toyota, my option for coverage ended 8/2016. I'm being punished for having conservative miles. Criminal and deceiptful.

Toyota issued TSB for "excessive oil consumption". I went to the dealership for their 'test' (I. E. , more than 1 qt of oil in 1,200 miles) and just barely "passed". But the problem grows worse over time and now burns oil extremely quickly. But Toyota told me today that since the care is now more than 10 years old, there is nothing they will do for me. Why won't Toyota just do a "recall" to fix this obvious problem?.

I received a recall notice for oil consumption I believe in the summer of 2015. I didn't have any issues with oil consumption at the time. However around October 2015, I began to notice the car was burning through oil, I requested a oil consumption test---but it came back that there was no issue. At the time of the oil consumption test my car was at 190,000 miles. Now, the car is starting to burn more oil even after regular oil changes from moss bros Toyota in moreno valley. I just got my oil changed on August 4th 2017. Well two weeks (8/18/2017) after my change I noticed the oil sensor would flash every time I came to a stop. I check the oil in my car and there was barely any on the dipstick. As a result, I added more oil myself to avoid burning up the engine. I called the service advisor at moss bros who helped me two weeks prior. I explained the situation and told him I had an oil consumption test 2 years ago and was advised everything was normal. Unfortunately, he said there was nothing Toyota could do to help because of the high mileage on my Camry. He said it would cost $5,000 to replace the piston rings or $4000 to replace the engine. As a result, I filed a claim with Toyota consumer affairs (case#1708181590)--the girl melissa on the phone didn't want to help and told me Toyota wouldn't be able to pay for the warranty work because of high miles. Toyota knew the piston rings were faulty from the beginning. They didn't want to spend the money or hours/years trying to repair/replace engines in these cars. So they make the consumer do this stupid worthless consumption test to avoid recall repairs. They are obviously trying to avoid taking care of a problem that many of us are facing. I purchased this vehicle in October of 2007, brand new off the lot. Took it in for all of the regular maintenance appointments and know that I did everything right.

Am a person who always get my oil change on time since I bought my car. However, over the last year, I have notice the following issues: my �oil pressure� light come on halfway through your maintenance schedule. My engine burn through as much as 1 quart of oil in 1,200 miles I took my vehicle into the Toyota dealership on August 10, 2017 located on 1000 blairs bridge rd, lithia springs, GA 30122. They checked my vehicle and told me the following: I was told that my engine burning through oil is �normal� and �nothing to be alarmed of� they acknowledge damaged, oil-deprived engine only to deny warranty coverage; they quoted me over 3,000 to get fixed two weeks later, I checked my oil and I was completely out of oil. Over time, this issue is getting worst. I have contacted Toyota corporate office with no resolution; I continue to leave messages. I would like to have my car fixed since this issue is common in 2007 solora's.
