My 2007 Toyota Camry burns a lot of oil. If I was to drive from S.C. to N.Y.C. after driving 600 miles my crank case is empty I would have to add five quarts of of to continue on my journey. In between oil changes I would drive 1200 miles and burn 2 and a half quarts of oil.

I was driving on the high way coming from the airport giving a ride to a family member after about 7 minutes from the time I started driving, the car showed engine sign and in less that 5 minutes the car suddenly stopped. I have tried to pull it to a safe place as much as possible, then it started showing smoke in the hood.

Car is burning 2+ quarts of oil every 1000 miles, resulting in 5 quarts burned oil per month. This will eventually cause the engine to cease, maybe during high speed, resulting in a fatal accident.

In 2015 I noticed I was burning through oil too fast, so I took my 2007 Toyota Camry to the Toyota dealership. They said it could be the piston rings (a known problem, but not covered), and they couldn't do anything about it. Fast forward to January 2020, and I'm burning through 2.5 quarts every fill-up. The check engine light came on and 'cylinder 3 misfire' was detected along with a bad spark plug. I had to spend around $400 to fix a coil and spark plug because the 3rd cylinder had expanded and was spilling over. 3 weeks later, the same thing happened with me adding 1 quart of oil every 1/2 tank. I was told this would cost upwards of $2,000-$3,000 to fix. I've seen this is a known problem, especially with the 2007 Toyota Camry, and this might be due to bad piston rings. I was forced to get a new car this weekend because of this.

Burns too much oil. Friends with Camry and Scion both have complained about same issue. I barely make it to 2000 mile mark and have to add oil. Even different dealerships have told me that these engines are known to burn through too much oil. If they know this and it's a problem for many then it should be fixed.

My Camry passed the oil consumption test in March 2015 at rick hendrick Toyota, sandy springs Georgia. I informed the technician that it should of failed because I was adding oil between maintenance visits. In December 2019 my car is burning oil faster than ever. The dealership (rick hendrick Toyota in sandy springs Georgia ) administered another oil consumption test. I am still doing the test. However, the manager told me the recall has expired and I am responsible for any repairs or engine replacement. I am the first and only owner of this vehicle, it has 145,000 miles. I should not be responsible for the manufacturers defect and possible oversight of Toyota certified technicians.

Ongoing issue the car burns oil like crazy. I have to add oil before my next oil change is scheduled (every 3000 miles). There is black soot buildup in the gas tank door around the cap. It has been like this awhile, just never thought anything of it until I met a fellow Camry owner who's 2009 Camry was recalled for the exact same issue but mine does not have the recall. The black soot has been there basically from the very beginning (2007), it started noticeably burning oil at about 130000 miles, the car is now at about 163000

3 different concerns issue #1: while in motion the ABS and brake light come on, speedometer goes to 0, other gauges go crazy. Happens off and on throughout the day while driving. Took it to a mechanic, they said it is the ABS module going out, to fix it with a brand new part would be $1800. Not only is it dangerous to not be able to see my speed, its a possibility my ABS wouldn't kick in if needed. Regular brakes work fine.
