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.

Excessive oil consumption now engine need to be replace.
High oil consumption and excessive oil burning. Last oil change, the tech stated check oil reguarly (every 2 weeks) car is burning oil. There are no oil leaks.
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 over 1qt at every 1200 miles.
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.

The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 156,000.
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.
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.
My Toyota Camry has an oil consumption issue, between oil changes I am having to find someone to check and add in what oil the car needs. I am 1 70 year old single woman and need a vehicle that is reliable and this vehicle is not safe nor reliable with the oil consumption problem that has been out in the public eyes for over 10 years and Toyota doesn't want to help fix it they want me to purchase another car which at my age I cant do so.
Oil consumption is really bad. 1 quart of oil every 200-300 miles. No visible oil leaks under car.
Engine is burning oil excessively.
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.
I have a 2007 Toyota Camry with 155,000 miles that excessively burn oil at the rate of 1 quart per 1000 miles.
