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.
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.
Excessive oil consumption problem as identified by Toyota. I am original owner and was never notified of this issue. I am now over mileage limit by 10k miles. Toyota is only offering me $500 toward a $3000 - 4000 repair.
Bought car used a year ago. Had oil consumption test done at 74,000 miles within time frame allowed. Was told engine was good. Now, at 80,000 miles oil is at bottom tip of oil dip stick. I called dealer where oil consumption test was done. Was told "we only added a quart. . . " at test's conclusion. I was not told at the time of the oil consumption test's conclusion that a "quart was added. " since I was not told a quart was added, I wasn't aware I had to watch my oil. Upon starting the vehicle, oil light flashed briefly but I couldn't make-out what it was. Following day, upon starting vehicle, it flashed again. Another day and it stays on very briefly but long enough for me to figure that it was the oil light. I let car sit on flat surface for an hour, checked oil and it just touched tip of dipstick. I added two quarts of oil.

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.

Engine excessive oil consumption.
Engine burns approximately 1 quart of oil for every 500 miles. General Toyota of toms river stated that oil consumption on the engine is within allowance and refused to correct the problem at 142000 miles. Car has been brought to this dealer with no oil on the dip stick, and ignored.
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.
Car had no problems til I reached the 120000 mile mark now the car shuts off without notice,burning oil and check engine light goes off and on.

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!.
The dashboard is melting and the car burns oil fast.
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.
Vehicle consuming too much oil/burning oil. It is a problem with the 4 cylinder engine. Oil has to be monitored closed so at to not blow my engine. Cannot find a recall and notification was sent to me. I researched the issue on line saw several complaints but not recall.
