Toyota named in class action lawsuit over excessive oil usage

Toyota Motor Corporation

This is a class action lawsuit brought on behalf of a class of current and former Toyota and Scion vehicle owners and lessees with defective 2AZ-FE engines in the following model years (“MY”): MY 2007-2011 Toyota Camry HV, MY 2007-2009 Toyota Camry, MY 2009 Toyota Corolla, MY 2009 Toyota Matrix, MY 2006-2008 Toyota RAV4, MY 2007-2008 Toyota Solara, MY 2007-2009 Scion tC, and MY 2008-2009 Scion xB (the “Class Vehicles”).  The action seeks to represent and certify classes of owners and lessees in California, New York, New Jersey, Florida and Washington

This action arises from Defendants’ failure, despite their longstanding knowledge of a material design defect, to disclose to Plaintiffs and other consumers that the Class Vehicles are predisposed to an excessively high rate of engine oil consumption (the “Oil Consumption Defect”). This defect – which typically manifests itself during and shortly after the limited warranty period has expired will inevitably cause the Class Vehicles to prematurely burn off and/or consume abnormal and excessive amounts of engine oil.

The existence of the Oil Consumption Defect poses a safety risk to the operator and passengers of the vehicle because it prevents the engine from maintaining the proper level of engine oil, and causes an excessive amount of engine oil consumption that can neither be reasonably anticipated nor predicted. Further, the Oil Consumption Defect can cause engine failure while the Class Vehicles are in operation at any time and under any driving condition or speed. This exposes the driver and occupants of the Class Vehicles, as well as others who share the road with them, to an increased risk of accident, injury, or death. As discussed further herein, numerous owners and lessees of the Class Vehicles have experienced engine damage and catastrophic failure while operating the Class Vehicle, thus placing themselves and those around them in immediate danger.

As alleged, Toyota has long been aware of the Oil Consumption Defect yet has routinely refused to repair the Class Vehicles without charge when the defect manifests.

Since the Oil Consumption Defect typically manifests shortly outside of the warranty period for the Class Vehicles – and given Defendants’ knowledge of this concealed, safety related design defect – Toyota’s attempt to limit the warranty with respect to the Oil Consumption Defect is unconscionable here.

Despite notice and knowledge of the Oil Consumption Defect from the numerous complaints it has received, information received from dealers, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) complaints, and its own internal records – including durability testing, Toyota has not recalled the Class Vehicles to repair the Oil Consumption Defect, offered its customers a suitable repair or replacement free of charge, or offered to reimburse its customers who have incurred out-of-pocket expenses to repair the defect.

I have a 2009 Camry SE and was curious of this situation. My car does use excessive amount of oil with it burning out fast between oil changes. This is useful information and glad you brought this up. I thought it was my driving habits

My 2008 Camry SE is drinking oil. 800 miles after my last oil change it was showing 1 1/2 quarts low on Oil. It started around 55,000 miles. I now have approx 94000 miles on the car and my 100000 extended warranty will be running out soon. I have been so stressed over this in trying to keep oil in my car. I am nearing retirement and was hoping to have a car that would last me through my retirement. Toyota says there is nothing they can do. Is it even worth joining a class action law suite?

So what can we do? By the time I get my car paid off the motor will be ruined. I am about to just give up! How do we join this class action lawsuit and does it cost us anything! I've been so stressed over this problem with my car that I have been sick about it. I feel like taking it and parking it in front of the dealer and put a big sign on it!

The Engine on my 2007 Toyota Camry just got destroyed, supposedly due to the car being "out of oil". I have about 140,000 miles on it and have the, oil changed at every 3 months, religiously. I think this particular model has a defect and should be recalled. My prior Toyota Camry SE lasted 13 years and never had these issues. I googled "CAR COMPLAINTS.COM" and found many others are having the same problem with their 2007 Camry's.

We have a 2008 RAV4 that is experiencing the excessive oil consumption problem. We need to check the oil level quite often and add additional oil between oil changes. The vehicle uses a quart of oil every 1500 to 2000 miles. We use 5-20 oil as recommended. This vehicle currently has about 54,000 miles.

Not overdue on oil change, no oil in driveway and no warning light on dash. I pray we caught it quick enough & my engine isn't ruined! We have 5 Toyotas in our family & are/were very loyal to Toyota but knowing the manufacturer is aware of this defect & doing nothing is very disheartening.

I had a 1993 Camry with nearly 600,000 miles, never had an oil consumption problem with my 4 cylinder engine. I always maintained my Toyota cars with a certified dealer. Now I own a 2007 Camry and it burns 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles. Dealer service rep has told me I need to rebuild the engine: new rings and pistons. I am very disappointed with Toyota's position on this concern...I believe Toyota Masnagement approved the use of defective out specification parts.

My 2007 Camry needs a new engine due to the oil issue. The car has about 130,000 miles on it. I am really frustrated by this since we bought the car with expectations of it lasting much longer than this. When we first had the issue with the oil it was when we first bought the car and this was brought to Lebrun Toyota's attention, which they proceeded to tell us it was the type of oil they used (evaporating oil) and that they would use another kind with the next oil change. I want to file a class action suit but not sure how this all works and do not want to pay to do this.

My 2007 Camry SE 4 cycl. started to burn excessive amounts of oil. Originally I thought the last incident when there was no oil on the stick indicator, it was due to the car shop that I went to. This time around I did my own oil change in the garage and just at just shy of 5000 kms, the light came on to my surprise. Checking the oil level stick, there was no trace at all. The car was bought brand new back in 2007, it especially disappointing since the car only has 120,000 kms on it.

I have a 2008 Toyota Rav4 that is burning a lot of oil. How does Toyota expect to keep loyal customers if they don't own up to their mistakes? Once the friends and family members of the people having this issue with their Toyota's find out that Toyota isn't making quality anymore, Toyota will ended up loosing a whole lot more money than they would of if they just fixed the problem and owned up to their faults. Toyota is looking really stupid right now.

I am very faithful and have had my oil changed at my dealership the recommened 5,000 miles. I have been telling them that it is burning oil like crazy and they said that is normal. Normal?? I don't think so! I am getting ready to retire and now I have to get a new car or a motor job for $3,000. I am sick to death over this.

I have the same issue with my 2007 Camry LE. My check engine light came on 5/11/14. (BTW - my oil light never came on) I took my car to the dealershinp the very next morning and they told me that my oil was completely empty and that I needed a new engine. WTF. I only got my car serviced at Toyota dealership and I was not due for another oil change until a month. This is ridiculous. I was told by the service manager that the Toyota manual states that you are suppose to check your oil on every gas fill up. Go figure. I was so upset, I just left. I feel that a class action lawsuit is in order. I have to check my oil twice a week. Who wants to do that? When I have to go out of town, I rent a car because I am afraid to drive my car any long distance.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry SE I bought brand new in February of 2007. Within a year I noticed that I was going through a quart of oil every 1500 to 2000 miles and I had less than 20,000 miles on the car. I took it back to the dealer in Merrillville Indiana and they told me this was normal. As time went on the problem continued to get worse. I now have 165,000 miles on the car and it uses a quart of oil every 500 miles! That's a quart of oil with every tank of gas. I've kept a detailed maintenance log for every single bit of maintenance I've done on the car and I have nearly 200 line items with the majority of them saying: Added 1 quart of 5w-20 Valvoline Synthetic oil to car on this date with this many miles.

My 2007 Scion TC is burning oil excessively. It has about 107,000 miles on it. I have had the oil changed before the reccomended 5000 miles because the oil light pops on. My last oil change was a little over a month ago and it has already burned 3 quarts in that time. I do not drive more than probably 500 miles a month

Bought 2008 Camry Hybrid at 92k miles without knowing this problem.

I also have a scion xb 2009, and I was never told about this major issue. This would mean adding a quart of oil to my motor every 2 weeks. That is a very large loss in oil. My service department is unaware and changed my oil and put return in 3,500 miles for next oil change.....by that time my motor would be ruined.

My 2008 RAV4 has the same issue. Started burning oil at about two years ago, at about 70,000 miles and has continued. I have had the oil changed every 3,000 miles since purchase. This week the oil light came on and it was down extremely low, only 2,000 miles after last oil change. I now check it often and carry extra quarts of oil. We all know this is a Band-Aid approach and will certainly eventually cost me big money for repairs.
Toyota needs to be held responsible.

I have a 2008 Camry and I have the same problem; excessive oil consumption. The only thing predictable about this problem is that the oil will disappear without notice. The denial of this problem is, as the complaint states, unconscionable. Darn it, I have found Toyota to be a great brand and they (the manufacturer and American Dealers) to be a disappointment.

My Daughter has a 2000 Corolla with less than 100,000 miles and it uses excessive oil. The car has been maintained and oil changed regularly. Contacted Toyota after doing research finding that Toyota manufactured this engine using undersized pistons and oversized rings to compensate.(Needless to say when the rings wear down and you have oil blowby the oil consumption jumped tremendously.) They all but laughed when I asked where I could take it to have them repair the problem. I don't care if it is 15 years old it has less than 100, 000 miles on it and has been maintained. I have owned 5 Toyotas and their customer service is HORRIBLE. Toyota could careless about your safety. FYI My other daughter just recently purchased an 09 Camry. Maybe she will get some resolve.

I have a 2008 Camry XLE with 58,871 miles. I am also burning oil and will never buy another Toyota. I purchased this vehicle from my dad when his lease was up and thought I would be all set for a while! What a mistake!! I previously had 2 Honda Accords and never had an issue .I would never recommend a Toyota to anyone!! Toyota tries to convince you that this is "normal" for a car to burn oil!! The only ones that believe this is "Toyota"!!I convinced my dad to lease a Honda Accord this time around and he could not be happier !! As soon as I can I will trade this car in for another Honda because I believe that Toyota is ignoring a serious defect with the engine pistons in their cars and they are not accepting any responsibility for the defect!!! PS-I did write to Toyota to complain but got the run around as well as the same story about it being "normal" for the car to burn some oil!! I'm glad they believe this because no one else in their right mind does!!

My 2010 Prius, with 70,000 miles on it, is burning more than a half quart every 1200 miles. The dealership says they can't fix it until it is more than one quart in 1200 miles.

Own a 2007 Scion tc and have to add a quart every time we fill up with gas. Received a Warranty Enhancement Notification from Scion and was told to take it to a dealer for an oil consumption test. I thought this was great news so I took it to the nearest Toyota dealer. The service manager told me he couldn't do the test if the car was leaking oil in any way. He then took the car to the back to the mechanic and came back to me about 25 minutes later and said that oil was pouring out of my front valve cover. When I asked him why there is no oil under the car when we park it, or no smoke from it burning off, or no smell he couldn't really answer my question. Very frustrating.

I purchased a 2010 Certified Toyota Camry, November 30th 2014. Within a month of having it, I noticed the oil light coming on, especially when I hit my brakes. Also, my car was not moving much/quickly when I would hit the gas, after being at a complete stop [red light, stop sign etc.]. I got concerned, and checked my oil...nothing showed on the dipstick! I called around trying to find an open service center, and after finally getting a hold of one, and telling them what happened they told me to stop immediately and put a quart of oil in. They only needed me to put in enough to touch the dipstick, then take it to the nearest service center the following day.
I did this, and the manager said Toyota just came out with an "Oil Consumption issue" and anyone that brings their 2010 toyota camry in will have their car tested. If your car falls within the oil consumption problem, the problem will be fixed, along with receiving a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty!
**NOTE I bought my car in a town 3 hours away from where I work and live, but took my car to a dealer service center in the city I live. Because I wasn't at the dealer which I purchased my Certified Vehicle from, I was told I would have to pay for the oil change. Seeing as how I only had the car for <30 days, I said I wanted to be refunded if the issue was on their shoulders [of course it was!!]. The only way for me to be refunded was to call the dealer I purchased the vehicle from, and they could refund the money. My 'purchase' dealer agreed to refund the money, and I would just have to e-mail/text the receipt over. I never received the correspondence to which I could reply with the receipt. This concerned me when it was time to pick up and pay. I spoke to a manager before agreeing to pay, and was told not to worry because they can 'direct bill' the 'purchase' dealer. He said if my car didn't fit in the oil consumption issue, whatever the issue was would be covered through my certified warranty; I'm covered either way.
** From what he said, it's my understanding that your vehicle does NOT have to be certified in order to have the oil consumption test and the engine fixed.

I have yet to find anything on any of Toyota's websites that say anything about this oil consumption issue, test, or it being fixed and warrantied. I even checked on my Toyota owners website which shows all maintenance records, warranty information, and recall information.

When you have this test done you have to bring your car back between 1100 & 1300 miles after service, otherwise your warranty offer is expired. My follow up is 01/31/2015, and will try to remember to give you all an update.

Interesting that I received a notice yesterday from Toyota for my 2007 Toyota Camry XLE that there is a problem with these cars burning oil. No kidding. The dealer keeps telling me I'm crazy. It says that they are manufacturing the parts to fix the problem and it could take a couple of months. Then they will fix the car. Mileage was extended to 150,000 for primary repair and unlimited for secondary repair. It also says that if you have already paid to repair the problem, they will reimburse. It only took 4 years for them to step up on something that they knew about so long ago.

I received the recall letter two days ago my 2007 Camry LE, for excessive oil consumption. The car was definitely using more oil than can be considered normal. Took the car to the dealer this morning and was told it would have to use no less than 1 Quart of oil within between 1000 and 1200 miles to be repaired (not mentioned of this in recall letter). Their procedure for performing the oil consumption was not consistent with the recall notice either. They initially said they would do a complete oil change and seal the system. I told them I had to get to work so they topped the oil off and put slippages marks on the oil cap, oil drain and the dip stick. Makes perfect sense from a business perspective but you can’t check your oil to see if they didn’t “accidently” overfill the crankcase. I’m suspicious by nature. Will post results of dealer oil consumption check in 1200 miles

David M. said

I have a couple of corrections to my previous post:

1. Della P is correct, it is not a recall, it's called a warranty extension program. However, if the oil consumption conducted by the dealership is out of tollerence the fix is to put new pistons and piston rings in the engine. This is major engine work, may take two days or more to correct and requires replacement parts to fix the problem. Don't believe there is a safety issue and this may be why they don't catorgorize it as a "recall".

2. In order for the vehicle to be covered for repairs for excessive oil consumption, the car must consume no less than 1 quart of oil after driving 1100 to 1300 miles. Not 1000-1200 I previousely mentioned. This oil consumption rate was not specified in the notice I received in the mail. My 2005 Camry consumes a half a pint in 5000 miles so I find less 1 quart in 1300 miles excessive for my 2007 Camry. I would have the oil consumption check completed at the earliest opportunity. Based on how much oil it uses between then and when it's repared, Toyota may be willing to reimburse for cost of oil. Would save receipts.

I have a 2008 Rav4. I purchased it used from Toyota with 50,000 on it. I purchased the 100,000 warranty around 80,000 my oil light came on while turning a corner, checked the oil, and no oil on the dipstick. Added oil then started logging it and call Toyota about 1 1/2 year ago to tell them it was burning too much oil. They told me 1 qt for 2000 is not excessive, now it burns 1 qt for 1000 miles. Now at 111,000 no warranty. Yesterday I received a "Warranty Enhancement Notification - ZE7" in the mail for my Rav4, stating they will extend my warranty to 150,000 and fix the excessive oil problem if the car fails their test. I am taking it in for this test. They add oil and seal the oil lid, have you drive it for 1200 miles, and then check the oil. If oil is below 1 qt they will fix the pistons.

If the dealer performs an oil consumption check you should provide them the oil you've been using and "watch" them add whatever is neccessary to fill to capacity and seal the system. There are additives that can be added to oil that temporarily seal the piston rings and reduce oil consumption. They wanted to provide me with an oil change to start the test. This was not mentioned in the letter I received from toyota. I told them I was late for work and didn't have the time. They aparently added what was necessary and seal the system. Unfortunately I didn't watch them do any of it, but after reading more about this issue I wish I would have.

When we got there and checked the oil there wasn't any, we went to a Toyota dealer in Amarillo and it said there was no oil in the car, so when we came back to KC. We took it to our Local dealer and they ran a Oil consumption test and said it was ok. now I am having the same problem but its happening around 2,000-2,900 miles my oil light comes on, now Toyota is doing another oil consumption test. Its been happening for several months. It isn't normal. I think there is a Problem as well

from Houston TX ...I have to say Its no surprise Toyota has many problems They used to have better cars but obviously quality is not what they guarantee. I have a 2008 Camry with several defects major one is the oil consumption. I have seen letters some from them to repair small items like the visor and recently got a letter for my dashboard to be repaired Or replaced if it's cracked or stcky. Toyota obviously doesn't know how to prioritize. All those minor things are not as important as getting the car repaired for all the oil it burns quickly.It's so dangerous that it can cause the car to break down or start a sudden fire. I'm so shocked that they don't do anything. They want to end up like Gm motors. Toyotas negligence makes me lean towards Honda cars.

I purchased brand new RAV4 in 2007 from Appleway Toyota Dealer in Spokane WA. I had oil change every 3000 miles. I didn't notice any problems with oil consumption for first 9,000-12,000 miles. Then between regular oil changes (around 1,500 miles since last oil change) I noticed more then half dry dip stick and took my car to the same dealer where I bought my RAV4. I also told them about noisy pinning sound from engine. They asked me if I want to do oil consumption test, but I need to change oil in their shop which is not for free even if my car still under warranty! So I had to bay that service and they asked to come back in about 800 miles. After all they found half way dry dip stick and told me that is OK!!! Really? I feel so bad! Thanks God they have free Pit Stop so I have them to top oil off every time between oil changes... I think Toyota need to fix this problem and pay more attention about their reputation!

I went to the Mike Calvert Dealership to get the test for this very common problem,Oil Consumption Defect, only to be told they could not do the test until I fixed what was on this list... #1 replace valve cover gasket, #2 replace oil pan and drain plug #3 Power steering hose /line for a total of about $1,000. I purchased my 2007 in 2006. I have continuously paid the dealerships to perform my maintenance like clock work. I am having a problem with trusting this needs to happen before a test can be performed, further more, I have no leaks of the oil pan or power steering, another dealership confirmed this a few months back when I inquired about this Oil Consumption Defect.

I am having the same problems. I switched to 5-20 to help slow the oil consumption down, it helped a bit. about a qt every 800 miles is what i see. I am bringing it in on 3-5-15 to do the test. Will see what the dealer says, has been doing this for 10,000 miles or so. The way I found out is when I checked the oil to find none on the dipstick and had to add 2.5 qt to fill it.

I without a doubt have the problem with my 2008 Camry. I burn through at least a quart every 1000 miles, if not more. Here is what I found out. We, the effected consumer, has to pay for an oil change, they use "canned oil", not bulk oil. They will then seal the system, then we return 1100-1300 miles later for an oil check. If the consumption is 1 1/2 quarts or more, they will repair the problem. I am adding these comments because I have read in many posts that its 1 quart---and no one mentioned, that I read, that we would need to pay for the oil change. In fact The Warranty Enhancement notice, ZE-7, FAQ Q4a-- says that the dealer will top off the oil and seal the system, this was explained away by Toyota as a misprint and that we do indeed need to pay for this oil change. I am skeptical, to say the least, that they will find a problem and correct it at no charge. What if they overfill when they seal it?? Mmmmmm. What if they open it, test it and tell me there's no problem, Mmmmmm. How can I keep this test honest with no access to see they filled it properly or see the test at the end.????? I will bring it in in about a week for the "test", I will try to insist that I see the oil dipstick before they seal the system, and that I be allowed to see it after. I will keep you all posted.

I took my 2007 Camry, adding 1289 miles since test began, 115353 miles total, back to the dealer this morning to complete the 1300 mile oil consumption check. It burned exactly one quart of oil. Since it did not burn “more” than one quart of oil it did not qualify for repairs as outlined in the Warranty Enhancement Notification I received from Toyota. After hearing these test results I discussed my displeasure with the service manager about the absolute ridiculousness of any experienced car owner who would actually believe one quart of oil used in 1300 miles could/should be considered normal. She proceeded to pull another Toyota pamphlet out of her desk drawer and said that one quart every 600 miles is acceptable, the Warranty Extension Notification adds 700 miles and this is in the customers favor. Needless to say I was astounded, and now insulted that Toyota could think I or any other self respecting car owner would actually believe it. I also called Toyota customer service (800 331-4331) and they told me the exact same thing. So, which one of you reading this post would actually buy a car that burns 1 quart of oil every six hundred miles? One quart per 1300 miles equates to roughly 3.8 quarts between oil changes (5000 miles). My 2007 Camry crankcase only holds 4.5 U.S. quarts. One quart per 600 miles is 8.3 quarts every 5000 miles. As I mentioned in a previous post, my 2005 Camry and 2006 Tundra burn less than a pint of oil every 5000 miles. This will be an expensive repair for Toyota, was told about $1800 per vehicle. I seriously hope this class action law suit is successful. Loyal Toyota customers deserve satisfaction!!! I have worked on cars since I was sixteen, building my first race engine at eighteen. Trust me, burning this much oil in today’s cars is NOT NORMAL!!! Anybody who says it’s normal probably works for Toyota.

The engine oil light came on and then went off. I called the dealership on my way and was told to pull the car over immediately and turn it off. I let the car sit for 15 minutes and checked the oil. There was not enough to register on the dipstick. I had a friend bring me 3 quarts and drove straight to the dealership. I got oil change and they started the consumption test. I said," That was the test, what is the fix?" They told me there is no fix yet.

I have an 08' Camry SE that burns 1-2 quarts every 1000 miles.. I'm half tempted to stop changing oil and just replace filters every 3000! Still waiting for the warranty enhancement letter... The dealer near my house said to swing by to start the consumption test and that it would be a couple months before Toyota would decide to rebuild/replace or ignor the bad engines.. They need to get an idea of the quantity for parts/ loaner cars/ etc...
In the mean time we keep buying oil waiting for an O2 sensor to go bad or the Catalytic converter to load up from the excess oil..

I have 2008 Camry that burns 1-2 quartz every 800-1000 miles. I received the warranty enhancement letter which said to take it to the dealer for the consumption test. The dealer near my house wouldn't even take up in because they said Toyota hasn't decided on what to do about the issue and that parts are not even available at this time. I then took it to the dealer in Austin where I bought it. They did do the test and told me they found nothing wrong. The oil had not changed levels within the 1100 miles that I drove it. That is BS because I know for a fact I have put 4 quarts of oil in it within the past two months. So why would it register okay for them. I don't get it? It sounds like they are not going to take any responsibility for the issue. I will never buy another Toyota. And even worse, I'll never be able to sell this one because of the reputation.

My 2009 Toyota Camry has been consuming oil at a much faster rate now. After an oil change, the car needs an additional quarter of oil to bring it back to FULL on the dipstick. I wonder why I did not have that much of the old oil coming out during the last 3 years. Now more and more Toyota owners are expressing serrors concerns abut Toyota engines. I have 2 older Toyota cars that never have this kind of problem. This is Toyota's problem. They have to take care of it now or sooner otherwise people like me will not own more Toyota products next time. The words will be spread around very quick if nothing is being done about it. Why do we have to prove it the hard way...those engines with possible piston rings are having shorter life expectancy.

I took my 2007 Toyota Camry to the toyota dealer to have an oil consumption test done . I was told to bring it back between 1200 and 1300 miles to have it checked. When I took it back I was told that it was about 1/2 quart low on oil but it did pass the oil consumption test. It is not normal for a car to use 1/2 quart of oil in that many miles. They did not allow enough miles for the oil consumption test because every 2000 miles my car is 1 quart low on oil . A car should not use a quart of oil in 2000 miles.

Then I took it to my private certified mechanic and he said no leaks anywhere. Need to have oil consumption test done to prove car in burning oil quick. 3 or 4 quarts every 300 miles. When it was checked at toyota dealer it had no oil and it was completely filled and changed 300 miles previous to this. They said parts will be available soon late spring to fix problem.

2010 prius, has been consuming oil since about 65,000 miles. Was told that 1 quart ever 1200 miles was acceptable. After first consumption test it was decided Ineed I an engine breakdown. However I was moving too another state, that dealership conveniently did not add appropriate notes. Once moved they made me redo the consumption test however dropped the acceptable yardage from 1 every 1200 miles downto prius 1 every 600 miles. This resulted in my warranty no longer willing to do the engine break down. I am putting about 10+ quartsin prius between my scheduled oil changes. I came in today for my oil changing knowing that I was 3 quarts low...no one here batted an eye, told Mr about it orlogged prius it as being low. Apparently the oil leftwad prius very dirty and my filter was black, again no notes. I am having them do another consumption test now I don't trust I will get any satisfaction. I now have 94,000 miles on the car with no prius resolution from Toyota.

We have a 2007 Camry that we discovered was going through about 1 qt of oil every 800 miles in the winter, and perhaps 1 qt every 1200 in the summer. Our first knowledge of the issue was when the engine light came on due to the engine almost running out of oil! There was no oil in any of the other fluids or on my garage floor. The engine was starting to run very sluggishly also, and when I had the spark-plugs replaced as a test, my suspicions were confirmed - the plugs were fouled from oil burning! I wrote letters to Toyota detailing all this, and upon their suggestion took the vehicle in for an oil consumption test. We returned for the results after 1000 miles to be told that the car used 3/4 of a qt - and the cut-off was 1 qt every 1200. Missed by 1/4 qt? I believe this test was dubious based on our experiences. I am going to go back after 5 months (Toyota's rules) for another test. This time I will request to observe the oil level before they seal it, and to observe the oil level when I bring it back. See Toyota service bulletin T-SB-0094-11 - they admit that the defect is faulty pistons, but set the standard for replacement at 1qt. per 1200 miles. I don't know what universe 3/4 qt. per 1000 miles is acceptable - but in a few months I'm going back!!!

What's the point if the test if I only have to keep redoing the test because the oil runs out before the mileage I'm told to bring back it obviously shows there's a problem I can't even drive it the mileage they say without having to put oil in the vehicle

I purchased a warranty on this car and first thing Monday morning I along with my father in law are going to Toyota to find out what they are going to do about this! I googled about my car and I found this board so obviously I am not alone with this oil consumption problem, Toyota needs to step up and acknowledge this problem and fix these cars before there reputation is ruined! I had a 1999 Honda Accord previously and it never leaked oil like this it was 15 years old and I would put in maybe a 1/2 quart of oil tops!

I have a 2009 Camry SE 2.4L 4-cylinder and I notice it shortly after when I purchased it used back in 2010 with about 30K miles. I replaced the PCV device at the valve cover but still notice the oil consumption and got worst at 50K miles. Now with about 80K miles, it consumes nearly 3qts every 5K miles.

I was informed by Toyota that 1qt of oil consumption for every 634miles is acceptable. By that measure, if you're alert, like most people, with maintenance, you'll let it run dry by 5000miles.

For people that have problem, a good solution is to use conventional oil and change it every 3000 miles so that it allows you to be more aware of the consumption. If you change it every 5000 miles, your car will not have enough fluid to properly lubricate (primarily cooling) the vital parts.

I believe the problem will get worst for people like us because I believe at 200K miles, which is believe is low mileage for toyota engines, you'll get engine knocks.

I have a 2009 camry LE. I am adding about 3 qts oil between changes. Just had the oil consumption test done and the dealer verified issue and said I would receive a letter from toyota.

I went in for a regular scheduled oil change, and the mechanic told me I literally had no oil( light never came on indicating it was low). I am concerned about damage to engine as it makes a loud metal pinging engine noise when accelerating. Frustrated that they knew a long time about this issue and did nothing!

I bave a 2010 Scion Tc engine locked up, with 64000 miles on it bought car in 2013. I am a prufessional heavy duty truck mechanic with over 30 years experince, I changed oil every 3000 miles and checked the oil level everyday, was adding oil at least once a week. Wasn't aware of oil consumpation issue.

I have paid thousands of dollars in repairs before I knew about the oil consumption problem. My mechanic thought the check engine light was on because I needed at new CAT. He fixed it, I paid $1000 and the check engine light never went off. The oil light blinks and every few days my engine knocks. I check the oil and there is NO oil. I have to put 3 quarts of oil in my car just to get it to sound decent. It does this shortly after oil changes too. I want every dime I've spent of diagnostic tests, extra oil, the price of the new cat, and the fact that my car is basically much "older" due to this problem. I believe even though my car has 99,000 miles, it probably is acting like it has 200,000 because of this problem. I do not have any extra money to buy a new car. This is not right. How do I become part of the lawsuit?

Having the same problem with a Rav 4 2008. Purchased, because Toyotas have been good, until I see this now and they expect us just to keep paying for oil or paying for the costly repairs to fix the issue. when is Toyota going to make a recall and fix the defect at their own expense? It is a problem from manufacture!

I have to put in about 6 quarts of oil in between oil changes. Toyota now offers an oil consumption test that can be performed on your car. What happens is they top off your oil to a certain level whatever that is and then they say drive 1100 and come back and if you have excessive oil consumption then they will move forward from there. Although the damage at this point is already done to my engine because of having low levels constantly and not only taking up my time to refill the oil but the cost of the oil itself is absurd after you have to put in so much all the time.

I own a 2008 Toyota Camry and it burns 1 to 2 quarts of oil per month so the oil has to be checked or changed monthly because if not and 6 months goes by it would have no oil left. And this is with my mother using the car who drives the car like Miss Daisy. Sad. I never knew a new model Toyota car would use more oil than gas. Perhaps this is how Toyota is is making up for the governments MPG emission limit requirements. Simply by making their vehicles burn more oil than gas. Hey, Toyota how about giving me back the $15000 I paid for the oil burner you sold me? plus all the extra oil and inconvenience you put me and my family through. Sad.

I keep getting letters from Scion telling me about their wonderful warranty enhancement notification in which I have to submit to their oil consumption test so they can determine if my potential coal burner qualifies for their repairs. This is kaka. They in effect are notifying every buyer of a second generation Scion their engines will wear out prematurely, something Consumer reports never reported before. In fact because of Consumer reports wonderful reports on this best of cars I shelled out $20K large to buy one and now I have to worry if the thing is a ticking bomb, not to mention the airbag fiasco which can easily kill anybody driving any new car equipped with takata airbags. Where is the U.s. Govt? Don't they monitor these bastards? Why do they permit them to sell deathtraps to U.s. Citizens. If and when my 10 Scion starts burning oil I will definitely want to be part of a class action with your firm and will contact you when that happens. Scion in effect is warning anybody who purchased their products it is just a matter of time before they all suffer the "takata" illness which can be deadly. After all, all Scions were manufactured by Toyota the same way with the same machinery. They are all ticking bombs ready to blow up with no warning. I am so pissed I purchased one from them

I received the "Enhanced Warranty" notification on my RAV 4 with about 180K miles on it. The notice informed me that they will do a "Test" where they measure the oil consumption after driving about 1200 miles. I dropped the RAV 4 off at the dealership, they sealed the oil dipstick and drain plug and I then drove ~1200 miles over the next couple weeks and took it back for the test results. The RAV 4 failed the test by consuming over a quart of oil. The Dealer said it would take a couple weeks for the repair, gave me a free loaner car and the repair won't cost me a dime. I know it took Toyota a long time to step up and fix the issue but they seemed to have done so with all the class action lawsuits.

Take all your oil burning beasts back to Toyota....They should be covered now!

I have a 2007 CAMRY and have always kept it well-maintained, changing oil before 3000 miles. Needless to say, I was driving with no oil and almost burnt out my engine. The engine light would go on and then go off, therefore I kept driving, forgetting about the light thinking my "oil sticker" says I have 1500 more miles before oil change was due. I am not wired to think about car engines and I know this about myself. That's why I made the choice to buy a new CAMRY. When I finally took car to dealership as a last resort, I was worried about a big, costly problem as I no longer have warranty coverage. While relieved the issue will be monetarily covered, I am dismayed that TOYOTA could not be counted on to let me know I had a serious engine problem that I may not have been aware of and ALSO a problem which I did not cause. Very sad that large companies prefer to remain "silent" in hopes that people like me are trusting their integrity to stand by their product.

Car was checked by local dealer and in Feb. was told it meets the requirement for repairs but must wait for Toyota to come out with repair parts.

2007 scion tc burning excessive amount of oil. I took it to the dealer
(Toyota Of North Miami) for the oil consumption test after being given the run around for 3 months, to be told my car did not have that problem and it had another issue that was going to cost me $1500 to fix. When my car was checked at the dealer and they called me back to look at where the problem was, it looked like they had poured oil all over the bottom of my car. I have never seen oil on my driveway like I saw that was dripping from the car that day at the dealer. If my car would be leaking that amount of oil, I would've definitely noticed and so would the facility that I take my car to have its oil changes.

Yeah, I have the same problem. It was really bad when the car had about 36K to 90K miles. Now at 103K miles, it's a little better. I was putting in .5 quart every two weeks. Took it in for the oil consumption test today, we'll see what happens. I noticed they put 30W ( a thicker oil) in the car when it calls for 20W. I think it will still fail .....can't trust anyone anymore.

I purchased my 2007 Rav4 at approx. 21K miles in late 2008. It's been a great vehicle until late last year when I noticed it was always low on oil, yet the oil light never came on. At no time when taking my vehicle into the dealership for service was the problem mentioned to me. I finally received a recall notice, took it in for the oil consumption test, which it failed. A little over three weeks ago, while bringing it in for other service, I was told there was a "solution." It has been in the service center for over 3 weeks (although they have provided a loaner) while they are trying to figure out what parts need to be replaced.

My car is paid for, has 155K miles, and I had hoped to drive it for a very long time. Now, I'm concerned about the reliability, even after the repair. I travel quite a bit, sometimes alone on long distances, and I have lost faith in my vehicle, and quite frankly, Toyota's handling of this problem.

My wife has a 2009 camry LE. Im a mechanic and a mechanical engineer. no engine should consume a quart of oil every 1200 miles, that is called a manufactures error in the pistons thats making these engines burn so much oil. I drive a 2001 nissan maxima with 230k miles that burns or consumes no oil. Anyways i do my own mechanic work in the family cars and my wifes camry consumes about a quart or more between oil changes (3000 miles not 5000).

I have 2007 Toyota Camry. Shortly after doing my routine oil change, I noticed the maintenance check light flash. I checked the oil, knowing that the oil should have been ok. However, to my surprise, the dip stick was completely dry. A certified mechanic checked for oil leaks but found none. As a matter of fact, he advised me that rod and pistons were bad and needed to be replace. He said it would be cheaper to just go ahead a purchase another engine; it would be cheaper and far less trouble.

1200 miles into the oil change, by the way i use synthetic oil, when i first
got the car I told them it was burning oil and they said it was normal, IT
IS NOT NORMAL FOR A CAR TO BURN OIL, so three years later i get a recall
notice in the mail telling me to bring my car in for an oil consumption
test, this is crazy, i want this issue taken care of , else i will continue
to take legal action, i already have contacted a lawyer about this, and they

My 2009 Toyota has failed the test in August 2015. This was the first time I took it in when I heard of it. The dealer started the repair today. They called and said about doing the valve seals on the upper block of the engine because this could cause oil to leak as well seeing the engine was apart. They proceed to tell me that this would cost $485 which was a good deal because it would normally be $1800 or more. They said that they would highly recommend this being done and I said isn't this covered and they said not this only the lower block. They also said I could to have my fuel injectors clean but that would not have to be not now. I called the local garage that has done repairs on my car and all of cars for work. He said he would recommend and is surprised they would do the other and not this with the warranty. He would highly recommend doing it or I could have issues with the engine. I even ask about a discount because this would be cause from the engine burning oil. They said this is cheaper because I would not have to pay a lot more for the labor.

That was about 6 months ago, been told Toyota is still in phase 1 of this recall the parts are available etc. etc. we go there every two weeks for them to add the oil ( no charge of course) but its a hassle, now the oil seems to be burning quicker and the oil light isn't even coming on. I'm worried the engine will blow and they will say well you should have made sure you went and got oil added and we will be out of a car for her.

My 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid (87,000 mi) is burning excess oil. I just finished paying it off. (This was an expensive car for me.) Received the warranty enhancement and took the car to dealer, where they changed the oil (for which they charged me!) and marked the dipstick and started the oil consumption test and told me to come back in 1,100 miles. Well, 300 miles later, I check the oil and it was down by half! I called the dealer service dept in a panic and they told me not to do that again, even if the oil light came on or the engine froze up!! They said Toyota would tow it in for me if that happened. What idiot does this? I have nothing in writing from Toyota saying they will accept responsibility if I let the car run out of oil at their direction and damage the engine. I have a 100,00 platinum warranty, too, but it's not doing me any good here. No more Toyotas for me! I just hope they haven't notated this in the car's service records so I can still trade it in!!

Well, 300 miles later, I check the oil and it was down by half! I called the dealer service dept in a panic and they told me not to do that again, even if the oil light came on or the engine froze up!! They said Toyota would tow it in for me if that happened. What idiot does this? I have nothing in writing from Toyota saying they will accept responsibility if I let the car run out of oil at their direction and damage the engine. I have a 100,00 platinum warranty, too, but it's not doing me any good here. No more Toyotas for me! I just hope they haven't notated this in the car's service records so I can still trade it in!!

My 2006 Scion tC is on its second engine due to the oil consumption issue. Purchased it with 82K miles on it. Just after 90K miles it was burning a quarter to half a quart every 2-3 tanks of gas. Eventually it began burning more. From 130-160k miles I was putting a quart of oil in every tank of gas, sometimes more. Catalytic converter was replaced (aftermarket, magnaflow) once before the rebuild and immediately after the rebuilt engine was placed in (no codes were present the second replacement, just precautionary). I ended up rebuilding the engine and it ran fine for 11K miles without a drop of oil burn (I used higher end forged rods, pistons, cast iron rings, reworked the head, new valves and seals etc) but the VVTI gear never worked right and failed. Took it to Toyota, they replaced it for $800 and not 160 miles later my engine was destroyed due to pistons and valves smashing together. Basically, they didn't time it properly. Refused to repair it because it was "rebuilt", so I had to buy engine #2 which was rebuilt by someone else. Unfortunately, that engine has done nothing but burn oil and I use one to 2 quarts of oil per tank of gas, am on catalytic converter #3 and completed gutted the secondary cat.

I got a check in the mail earlier this year for around $21. That's it? Really, all the trouble and money and I get $21 in the mail for my troubles. Thanks Toyota! This is why I will move to another manufacturer on my next car purchase.

My 2007 Toyota Camry has been experiencing excessive oil consumptions for over a year now. I have taken it to mechanics to find a possible oil leak that would cause me to lose oil in such a rapid manner and they could not find such leak or explain the rapid oil consumption.

I have a 07 Camry had 64000 miles when I bought it. Nice car well taken care of . I do my own oil changes with quality oil and filter change. Started changing at 3500 miles started noticing at 1000 miles oil below full mark on dipstick and almost half quart at 2000 miles. I got a letter from Toyota about excessive oil consumption and what to do. Took in to local Toyota dealership had test performed oil changed cost $53.00 they checked everything trying to make more money off of me. At 1100 miles below full out of luck didn't meet guidelines. Took back at 2000miles right at half quart low and they would not bring oil up full on dipstick told me to keep eye on oil level.Toyota wants to go 5000 miles on oil change that's a scary thought when car is burning oil! Well to me on the 2.4L engine in the Camry that barely holds less than 4 quarts oil with the filter half a quart of oil is a lot! All these people saying all cars burn some oil are full of BULLSHIT! I know there are people whose Camry's are burning more oil than mine so hate to raise hell to much but this is not right.

My 2011 camry is leaking a little bit of oil as well as burning it. just researching the internet to see if anybody else is having a problem and I found this. It started leaking about a month ago. we do our oil changes with the synthetic oil every 5000 miles instead of every 10,000 like the dealer recommends. our Camry has 125,000 miles on it it shouldn't be having a problem yet.

My 2007 Camry has always lost oil. I've been told that it didn't seem normal, but just to keep an eye on it. It seems inconsistent, but at times becomes alarmingly low very quickly. Even though there is now a recall, I wonder how much damage to my engine this has caused. I bought a Toyota because the engines are supposed to last forever. VERY disappointing that it took them this long to notify customers of the problem.

So they change my oil and told me to bring it back for oil check in 1000miles. But my thing is its only been 3 weeks n I don't drive a lot.But I heard some noise so I checked my oil and it's not a drop Og oil on the stick.

Just got a call, sparks plugs need to be changed !! They are supposed to last until 120,000 K. I believe car running low on oil caused the spark plug issue

I blew the engine in my 09 Matrix Xrs while on the freeway to work! I always take care in Toyota every 5000 miles for oil change and tire rotation. I have no mods on my car so when it happened i knew it wasn't anything i was doing. Luckily, this happened Feb 2015! My warranty was up in March 2015! Toyota replaced my engine with one that had simular mileage, but not before they mafe me feel like a criminal! Then they tell me Toyota will only loan me a car for 3 days! It took them 3 weeks to get my car back to me! So guess who had to come out of pocket for the remaining days! The whole reason for my engine blow was because of no oil. Confirmed by the guy who towed off the freeway that horrible day! Now, its Oct 2015 and guess what i received in the mail? A letter from Toyota telling me my car needs to have an Oil Consumption Test done! And ive taken my car in for oil changes since i had the engine swap and the mechanic even put on the report that i had low engine oil TWICE! GGGGGGGGGRRRRRRR! So, needless to say my car is in the middle of the consumption test! Hopefully no more BS!

I just received my notification for my 2009 Camry with 96,000 miles, on Nov. 3, 2015 to have the Oil Consumption Test performed as I have been adding oil as well between recommended oil changes. Took vehicle to Toyota on Nov. 6, 2015 and received the same information being passed along to me, "Drive vehicle between 1,100 - 1,300 miles and bring back in to Toyota to check". I have a feeling that the oil level will be within the acceptable range and I will be told this is normal. If that is what I'm told, I want legal representation that will hold Toyota liable and responsible for all repairs necessary, free of charge to me. I purchased this vehicle after hearing so many good things about Toyota and their reliability. We will see. I will let you know how it goes.

This is all pretty crappy when you realize you knowingly took a chance on this high tech vehicle. Savings from high MPG's is offset by cost of oil. Huge disappointment!

I own a 2010 Scion XB, I received a letter to bring in my car for testing and of course I passed. Before bringing in my car, my boyfriend noticed that my car was consuming more oil than usual. I told him about the warranty extension and how my car passed, but he still observed my car consuming 2-3 quarts before the scheduled oil change. When we brought this issue up with our local dealer, the manager said we passed and that I would need to request another test. Since then, I've had to check my oil weekly and there is a burning plastic smell that is coming from my engine. This is my only mode of transportation to school (I'm a teacher), home and soccer practice and dropping off my son to school every morning!! I'm am appalled to learn that Toyota knows about this defect and is willing to have its loyal customers put their lives, loved ones and other people's lives in harms way!!! I will call to get another test and hopfully get this car replaced!! My son is approaching driving age and the plans were for me to pass it on to him! Knowing that I will have to junk the car shortly after I pay it off is disappointing, to say the least!!

I have a 2007 Camry 83,000 miles. Oil light came on about 1,000 miles before scheduled maintenance. Took it to a nearby garage and they added over 4 qts of oil. Told me nothing registered on the dipstick. Took it within the week to the dealer== COAD Toyota of Cape Girardeau MO== where I had bought the car new and had all scheduled oil changes done. They told me it was a known problem and there was a recall for excessive oil consumption. I did the test where they topped off the oil sealed the oil cap and dipstick. I took it back after the test period. They added 1 qt of oil, then checked it , said it was full and that using a qt of oil per 1100 miles was normal. and it didn't qualify for the warranty fix which is to replace piston rings. I had a rather heated discussion with the service manager and the guy who sold me the car. Though I had all but one (and I did not skip that one) of my scheduled maintenances done there, no one had ever told me about the known oil problem or warned me that my oil level was dangerously low at oil change time. It probably is not a good idea to have maintenance done at a dealership. They will tell about problems when they can sell you something, filters, wiper blades, tire rotations, etc. but they have too much skin in the game to tell you about the problems that Toyota is responsible for. I was told that if I was dissatisfied, I should call the Toyota toll free number which I will do, but I think we all know how that will turn out. If their dealers can't convince Toyota that they are losing customers by the thousands, I doubt Toyota will be listening to me.

2010 Camry SE--Consumes 3 qts of oil per 2500 miles. 74000 miles on odometer. Dealer said its a $5500 repair, other shops say around $3000. Wrong size/defective valve stem seals from factory?

This car is an all around piece of junk. Theres a bearing issue in the transmission as well. A bearing comes loose and wears through the case. It shifts like crap from the factory. Zipkits makes properly sized hard parts for the transmission, which is rediculous that it even needs to be done. Do they even have quality control at Toyota? Good grief.

I have 1 2007 Camry and have had regular oil changes. The last one before my engine cracked was in May of 2015. I drive my car only about 300-500 miles a month. So in August when my car just stopped, thankfully on a quiet country road, I thought it was maybe my battery or alternator. After having it towed to a local garage (the nearest Toyota dealer is an hour and a half away) I was surprised to hear it was my engine. I had to make the decision whether to fix it or not. I chose to fix it but this engine is not cheap and also hard to find. I paid over 3,000 to buy a ued engine and have it fixed. Now I got a letter. I wonder if Toyota will pay for it?

Find the problem? Its burning oil! Thats the problem! Why should i pay for it when you told me at the time i got it that everything checked out on it. Had check sheet and everything. What can i do short of returning the car and cutting my losses. Its a good vehicle, just fix the problem!

My 2007 Scion TC is the epitome of everything said above! I'm scared that my motor is going to blow and I can not afford a new one. I was getting my oil changed regularly and in between changes my car would make a weird noise. I'd check it and it would be completely OUT!! So annoying! I knew nothing about this excessive oil consumption lawsuit!

I have the same issue. I have a 2008 Toyota Camry and have gone in for the oil consumption test and they told me it was fine but they did not indicate how low it really was. After 3500 I noted it was low and took it in and they filled it telling me it was 2 1/2 quarts low! I am in Michigan and concerned that I can't be included in this since I'm not in those states. My warrant will expire this year and then they will be charging me! This needs to become a recall.

Hi. I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and recently the engine began rattling and the oil light flashed intermittently on my dashboard. I was due for an oil change and so I took it in that weekend. They said there was no oil left! What?! Why did it notify me after the fact?! Anyway, they did an oil change and now the engine has a rattling sound. Local mechanic said the engine is damaged most likely from driving it without oil. Now I'm faced with a huge repair cost! My engine will probably have to be replaced. I want Toyota to take responsibility for this cost.

My 2009 Scion xB with 130,000 miles uses 1quart of oil per 1300 miles. I have faithfully had oil changes every 3,000 to 4,000 miles. Now between oil changes having to add between two and three qts of oil. I received the warranty extension and notification for oil consumption test and had the local Toyota dealer I have been loyal too for the past 15 years and they tell me it is OK. This is not right ! I am disappointed in Toyota for both the quality and loyal customer service. Previously I owned a 2001 Toyota Tacoma and put 250,000 miles on it and never had to add one drop of oil to it between oil changes. I assumed I would be getting the same quality engine when I purchased the 2009 Scion xB. Granted, people and companies make mistakes.....just be fair, own up and fix it...make it right!

I purchased my Toyota camry Hybrid 2007. My oil has been burning every since I purchased it. I complained but Toyota said there was no problem, but in 2011 Toyota did indeed find out there was a oil consumption problem. But they kept telling the customers their was noting wrong with the vehicles. But it's actually too late for my vehicle. My engine is making noise and have been making noise for years. I'm constantly calling Toyota corporation and they basically said they do not care. I had the oil consumptions test done on my vehicle last year around April of 2015 they lied and said I didn't have a problem. So I took it to a different Toyota but this time I had my boyfriend do it. When it was time to bring it back he said I want to be present when you check her vehicle. He was a mechanic in the Military. When they opened the hood they tried to pretend they dip stick had been tampered with. They couldn't pull that with him and they realized it so they checked the dip stick 3 different times. And they said okay the car failed we will change the rings and the pistons. But the question asked well there is nocking in that engine the damage is done. They tore the engine apart and said there was no knocking. Took it to the next Toyota to get a oil change they didn't no the history and said oh yes I can hear you knocking. Today called the corporation again a lady by the name of Christina C. was so rude to me and said were not doing any other work to your engine but changing the pistons and the rings. I said but there is a problem I've been reaching out to you guys for years. She said it's you fault. In anyone is interested in starting a class action suit email me at McCarverHome@aol.com, with your name email address and your issue. I'm only interested in starting a lawsuit about the engine damage and the loud noise coming from the engine. And the run around we have received from Toyota.

I have an 07 Camry with 150K on it, and in the last 6 months it has used twice the amount oil that is necessary for any car.It usually occurs when the car is cornering or stopped abruptly. It still has 1000 miles before the next oil change, (Toyota recommends every 5000 miles) as to coincide with tire rotation. I guess I will have to cut that in half and change it every 2500-3000 miles. I would have loved to know this before I purchased this car, one that is supposedly legendary at being able to go 3000K before dying.....................................

However, I can't even get half way through an oil change without completely running out of oil. I go to Jiffy Lube for my oil changes because they do free top offs in between but it's gotten so bad they now make me sign for my top offs because they have to literally fill it from empty.

My 2010 Prius has been dealer serviced at all maintenance intervals. The Oil Service message comes on every 5000 miles even though the oil change intervals are 10000 miles with the 0w20 synthetic oil. Just recently a fast flashing low oil pressure message came on for a quick less than 1 second then the oil maintenance message overrode it. I checked the dip stick and the oil was not even registering. I did not drive the car until i added 3 1/2 quarts of mobil one 0w20. Just out of curiosity I checked our 2009 camry hybrid that was just serviced in december 2015. the dipstick showed a need for oil as it was between the low indicator and bottom of dip stick. Both cars have been dealer maintained at regular intervals. What is going on here? A quart of oil every 1200 miles is what i'm reading, yeah, if you drove an Oldsmobile Delta 88, but this is now happening both these cars and they both have 69000 and 68000 miles respectively. Can someone either tell me what I can do as I am not only worried but very upset at what's happening. Purchased both vehicles in Naperville Illinois and have all service done at same location.

I have had my Camry for 4 months I purchased it from an outside dealer. Since I have had the car I have had this oil consumption issue. I have had 3 oil changes in 3 months. The car vibrates ridiculously and the engine knocks. I got my first oil change in Nov, Dec, Jan, and March so actually 4 oil changes. I put oil in the car every other week. The car has over 100,000 miles on it. I assumed that Toyota was one of the best on the road, but that theory has been proven incorrect. I called a Toyota dealer and I have an extended warranty on oil changes and if the problem persists they will strip the car and give me a new one.

I have a 2007 Prius with 160000 miles and am using approximately 2 1/2 quarts between my 3000 mile oil changes. I called the Toyota dealer and the service manager looked up my VIN number and said there was no recall for excessive oil consumption. He defined excessive oil consumption as using 1 quart, or more, of oil every 1300 miles. His recommendation was to check my oil every time I Fill up with gas, and to continue to use the 5-20 weight oil as recommended by the manufacturer. He did not recommend to use a 30 weight oil. I'm averaging 56-58 mpg with my Prius here in northern Florida. And in order to maintain that mileage I'm extremely careful how I drive. Usually I am the last car to get to a traffic light, and because I'm accelerating less than all the other cars when the light turns green, I end up being behind everyone else. This accounts for my high mileage, as well as running 42psi in all my tires. I say this to demonstrate that my driving habits did not contribute to this excessive oil consumption which leads me to believe that this Toyota engine is defective and should be recalled by Toyota to fix the defect.

My husband performs all of the basic maintenance on our cars, and noticed this happening. When I contact the "Blue Team" at the dealership, they were talking to me like I am just a woman that didn't know what I was talking about (they lost all of my business). I decided to contact a different dealer, who was more willing to listen, and had me do an oil consumption test for a few months. Since I don't drive a lot (as of now, I only have a total of 67,000 miles), this "test" took a long time to complete. Then I had to FIGHT for this to be covered under my extended warranty because they weren't trying to pay for their faulty gaskets. Now I just heard on the news that I will need to get my airbags replaced! This was the first new car I bought on my own, and I most likely will not be purchasing another Toyota in the future.

I have a 2008 to scion with around 120,000.00 miles. I bought it a year ago. I have been putting more than 4 quarts between every oil change. The oil light never comes on. Also have another issue with the passenger airbag, I guess the seat registers the wrong weight & the light is always on, can't get a inspection sticker. I also notice my electric Windows work when they want to along with the moon roof. The last complaint is when I have the air on & I brake going down a hill, my brake pedal loses the hold & moves to the floor. Like I am losing my brakes. I had them check & they can't find the answer

We have a 2007 RAV4 that is experiencing the excessive oil consumption problem. We started to realise the problem from February 2013. We need to check the oil level at least every week and add additional oil constantly. We also started to use a synthetic mix with regular oil in hopes that it will decrease the oil consumption.
In April 2015, we received the notice in the mail about the excessive oil consumption problem. Toyota mentioned in the letter that it will reimburse for the cost of the oil. We submitted all of our saved receipts, however, we did not get reimbursement.
In May 2015 the oil consumption test was completed by the Ancaster Toyota office (30 Mason Drive Ancaster, ON L9G 3K9). The Toyota Canada – Head Toyota office (Toyota Canada Inc. Head Office 1 Toyota Place, Toronto ON, M1H 1H9) advised us that the oil consumption test conducted by the dealership is out of tolerance. To fix this, new pistons and piston rings must be installed in the engine. This is major engine work, and may take two days or more to correct and will require replacement parts to fix the problem. They placed us on the waiting list and advised that we should wait for the new parts that will be delivered to the Ancaster Toyota Dealership.
Since then, we called them every two weeks and had the same answer that we should wait for the new parts. We were advised that it doesn’t matter if we are already over the warranty mileage, everything will be considered from the day of which it was applied for.
Finally, on May 29, 2016 The Engine on our 2007 Toyota RAV4 seized and stopped working, due to the car being "out of oil". We had the oil changed on time, and added more oil on the same day of our trip. When the oil light turned on and we pulled over to check and add more oil. However, it was too late and our engine was gone.
On May 31, 2016 we got an appointment for the RAV 4 to be inspected, which cost us $127 dollars. They are estimating the repair costs to be over $1,500. This issue was a direct result of the excessive oil consumption problem that was not fixed in a timely manner.
We are very frustrated with Toyota and believe that they should be responsible for the defect and any associated costs.
How do we join this class action lawsuit and does it cost us anything?

I am the original owner of a 2006 Solara that currently has about 56,000 miles. Around April 2015 the check engine light started turning on, but it wasn't until June of 2016 that I found out the problem. My car is burning excessive oil, about 1.75 quarts every 1,200 miles (according to the dealership's oil consumption test.) Toyota issued a Technical Service Bulletin in 2011 stating that it will only pay to repair the 2007 and 2008 Solaras. Although my car is a 2006, it has the exact same engine the 2007 and 2008 have. I already called Toyota corporate twice and they refuse to pay for the repair, arguing that it is out of warranty. I am aware of that, but it is obviously a manufacturng problem and it usually starts after the warranty expires. My car is low on mileage, it's never been crashed, and I've done all the maintenance at the dealership in a timely manner since the day I bought it. Toyota is well aware that this is a very common problem with these engines and they refuse to fix it. I shouldn't have to pay about $3,000 to fix it, if the problem is not my fault. I'm also not going to sell it to someone without telling them about the problem, because that's just wrong. So my only options are paying for the repair myself or selling it and taking a significant loss due to the problem. I've been researching this issue and there are thousands of other Toyota owners with the exact same problem. Toyota should be investigated, they should admit the problem, and be forced to pay for all the affected customers' repairs. I will never buy a Toyota again and I will try to convince everyone I know not to buy one either. I'm extremely disspointed with Toyota!

Hi,
So on 2011 I bought my 2009 Scion XB salvage. I did notice that it would consume way more oil than previous car. On 2013 they T-Bone me on passenger side. The person the t-bone me insurance pay for repairs. So, during the repairs I received a letter from Penske Toyota that theirs was a recall on my car. Once the car was fixed I took the car to Toyota to get the recall fixed. At Toyota they perform a test and my car definitely failed the test. So they gave me a date to fix my car. On the day of appointment the guy asked me if my car was salvaged and I said yes, and because my car was salvage title they wouldn't be able to fix it. So I call corporate of Toyota and they told me the same thing, I told Corp that the motor wasn't touched on either accidents.
Do you think I have a case? Can you help?

My engine is now dead and must be replaced because it "Ran out of oil". My oil changes have been regular and I was just becoming due for my next oil change. All of my oil change records are on file with the dealer. The service technician told me the sensor for the oil only detects pressure and not oil level so I had no way of knowing that my oil was empty and I wasn't due for a regular service when this happened.

My 2007 Camry hybrid was low 1 1/2 quarts on its very first oil change at 3000 miles. In 2014 I received a letter asking to bring my vehicle in for testing. The dealer filled my car with oil and asked that I bring it back after 1500 miles. When I brought it back after driving the 1500 miles I was told it was only down 3/4 of a quart and did not qualify as a excessive oil consumer. From the time I bought my car new in 2007 I have had to check my oil every 2 weeks to make sure the car does not run low on oil. While the car is still running well after 230,000 miles it's only because I have stayed on top of the oil situation. I feel Toyota should repair these obviously defective vehicles but I'm not holding my breath!!

I own a 2008 Toyota Camry LE 4 cylinder sedan and upon changing the oil, I notice that very little is draining after removing the oil pan plug. It concerns me that it's burning so much oil in between changes. Most times there is only about 2 to 2.5 quarts that drain. Toyota definitely needs to be held accountable and they need to rectify the situation by reimbursing all of their customers who have been affected!!!

I have a 2009 Toyota Camry and received the recall notice for excessive oil consumption. I have been monitoring my own oil for quite some time now. The book says it's allowed to used 1.1 quarts every 600 miles! Which is outrageous. You could virtually run out between oil changes and be "OK" acorrding to them. I got to the point where I used 2.1 quarts of oil in 800 miles and the car was struggling to run. I took the car to my auto imports in Muskegon mi and had them do the first round of the engine oil consumption check. Which was an oil change and they put a seal on the dip stick. Never showed me the level!! I drove the 1100 miles and the car was starting to feel sluggish. I brought it to them and miracles happened and it used 0 oil this time! Imagine that! So I called scam on the guy and he got all cocky smily and just shakes his head at me. I leave and check the oil level in the parking lot and its araeated like none other and just to the safe line. So they clearly added an xtra quart of oil for it to burn off!! Such a bunch of crap. At a loss as to what to do now as the car was paid off in December and they are arrogant and think I'm stupid.

I have a 2006 RAV4. Last year (2015) I received a warranty extension notice from Toyota re: excessive oil consumption. I took it to the local dealer who performed the test, confirming excess oil use. They proposed the fix at their cost (replace pistons, cylinders, rings, etc.). Fine. They had the vehicle six weeks, engine removed (I saw it) but parts for fix unavailable Finally completed fix. Problem is the fix didn't fix. They did 2 additional oil consumption tests. It still consumes lots of oil 2-3 qts. every 1k-2k miles. They say they've done everything they can. I talked several times to the national office. I'm tired of the merry-go-round. It stopped being merry a long time ago. Anyone getting relief?

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry with 256000 miles on it I have kept the Maintenance schedule on it. But right at 180000 mile it started getting low on oil but the engine oil light never came on. It would get down to the point where I needed to add 3 quarts, in between oil changes. I have been dealing with this issue for several years now. I believe this has caused internal issues now because the car now blows blue smoke, I now Have an engine light on and a message check CSV with a traction light and Toyota told me that I needed to replace the catalytic converter. The dealer keeps telling me that the car is just old. But I know that I have kept up the maintenance on the car, and it should not be this bad. I bought a Toyota because I knew I could drive it for a very long time. My friend had a corolla with almost 600000 miles on it. Now I am very disappointed.

we have a 2008 Scion XB with over 150,000 miles and now have the same issue. The dealer confirmed the problem with an oil consumption test after we received a warranty enhancement notification.The dealer told us to contact Toyota, thanks. There appears to be no attempt on the part of the manufacturer to remedy this situation. "The primary coverage offers warranty enhancement until October 31,2016, regardless of mileage. After the primary coverage period ends, the secondary coverage is applicable for 10 years from the date of first use or 150,000 miles, whichever occurs first." This from Toyota.

There appears to be no attempt on the part of the manufacturer to remedy this situation. "The primary coverage offers warranty enhancement until October 31,2016, regardless of mileage. After the primary coverage period ends, the secondary coverage is applicable for 10 years from the date of first use or 150,000 miles, whichever occurs first." This from Toyota.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and it's been burning oil out of control; it has been happened like that for years, and there was no leaking. I just had the oil change service at Wheel Works on 8/1/2016 (88,807 miles). And on 8/29/2016 (89,300 miles) I checked the oil was super low, so I had to added 2 quarts to it. My daughter is senior year in high school and she will drive this car in college. With this issue, it brings me alot of concern.

I just to let you know what I've gone through and how disappointed I am in Toyota.
My car burns oil but not enough for Toyota to fix it. I was told I need to replace the engine to stop the oil burning. Need to replace the engine, yet Toyota does not think it burns enough to replace it. I am shocked. The only way to fix it is to replace the engine. Is this correct? This should be a recall, not extended warranty. I bought a Toyota, not a Kia. I'm poor, I can't put a new engine in the car. And we all know it's going to get worse.

It started and my car only had 88,000 miles on it.

I thought I got the deal of my life when I bought this car. Turns out, I got one big pain in the ass money sucking car. The car burns 3/4 of a qt every 1200 miles. Toyota says; sorry won't fix it. Very sad they can get away with this. As a poor man, I cannot afford to fix it. (I sold what I had of value to buy it. Largest Willie Nelson song collection. Every song Willie released and a few he didn't)

http://www.thewittliffcollections.txstate.edu/research/a-z/nelson-recordings.html

FWB Toyota dealer said I had 3 oil leaks that I needed to fix before they would do the test. ($1,415.00) No oil on the ground where I park but 3 oil leaks? I wanted to come up and look for myself and they said ok, but you may be here 3-5 hours. We have to fix other cars first. (I borrowed the money to fix the imaginary leaks. This will take me 15 plus months to pay back.) Steven Shea the advisor said spending the $1400.00 would save me $6000.00.

My Firestone oil guy says no way I had oil leaks. Who do you believe? Toyota of FWB? Firestone? I trust the 70 year old guy that changes my oil and has for years. If I need something done on the car, he'll come get me. I talk to him in the parking lot after every visit. So, according to Toyota of FWB, my car had to spring 3 leaks within 3901 miles and 93 days after my last oil change. (Do you even believe that?) I've talked to other mechanic's. ALL said no way.

Aug 3rd, 2016 - (My birthday)

Toyota pissed me off by saying they did the oil test again (yesterday) and did not or lied about the oil consumption results. When I got the car back they said it only burnt 3/4 qt. Today I looked under the hood and saw the oil markings were still on my car. I could not pull the dip stick out. (see photo) NO I'M NOT KIDDING. THEY HAD MY CAR TWO HOURS AND WHEN I WENT TO STEVE SHEA TO ASK HOW MUCH LONGER, HE HIMSELF DROVE IT OUT. LEFT IT RUNNING IN THE PARKING LOT. WHEN I ASKED HOW MUCH IT BURNT, HE SAID 3/4 OF A QT.

Back to the 3rd.
I went back to Toyota and had them check the oil. They said they put a qt of oil in it and then checked the level. 1/2 - 3/4 of a qt low after Toyota guy checked it. Meaning, if Toyota did the test the day before as they said they did or my car would to have been over 1.5 qt's low and they did not put the other half - 3/4 qt in to fill it up. Yet they would not approve it to get my car fix for free by Toyota or admit they did not do the test. Meaning they never looked at it and the oil was still low when they gave it back to me. So now I have to do it all over again and they really don't care about my inconvenience and stress of this car. I was very upset and made it known. Steven Shea the advisor said he would not give me the paperwork until I said PLEASE. Are you kidding me! They charged me for something I did not need. (Oil leaks and he wants me to be nice?) Did not do the second test and they do not care. Yet they want me to say please. My anxiety and blood pressure were sky high. PEOPLE NEED TO BE FIRED OVER THERE. STARTING WITH STEVEN SHEA (Advisor) AND (Vaughn Nadeau) for not having the guts, the balls to tell me the test was not done properly or for them lying about the oil consumption and not letting my car get fixed for free. He and two other employees would rather lie to me then fess up. What is wrong with these people?

I will die without a good working car. I bought a Toyota because of the reputation. Camry, best selling most relievable car for years. (Till I buy one.) I guess this is God's way of saying he hates me a little more.
I have many out of town doctor appointment through the year. I need a reliable car.
I can't sell this car because I'm honest and will tell them it burns oil. I can't trade it in because my income will not support a loan.

I never got to see any oil dip stick results... Just had to rely on their word. So I guess all this extra oil I am having to put in my car is just my imagination.

My 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid (just under 135,000) miles is using a lot of oil. There is no oil leak. One day I checked the oil and it was low. Thank goodness I did! The check oil light has never come on! Today the check engine light came on. I took it to a garage immediately and they pulled a P1423 safety error... something about the gas cap being loose. It was not. I had them check the oil and they said it was very low again less then 4000 miles from my last oil change. The car only had about 1 quart of oil in it today. I am a woman and must drive 60 miles a day, 5 times a week to work. This is of great concern and a danger. Something needs to be done!!

Thankfully she heard the tapping and knew it needed oil and not to drive.I would like to see repair put in place.he bought it from a lot one year ago.I suggest people research before purchasing a Toyota.which is sad since Toyota was known as one of the longest lasting on the road.step Toyota your tarnishing your name...

My 2007 Camry will burn oil at a rate of 1 quart every 800 miles. I can not go a entire oil change.3500 miles without adding 2 or 3 quarts before I hit 3500 miles, It burns way to much oil. My 1999 Tacoma had 400000 miles on it and never burned oil. Same with my 1977 corolla. Took it in to be checked and they said it did not burn enough oil to be included in recall??? but when I opened the hood you could tell that oil was added by the oil that was spilled and wiped up. This recall is all a scam!!!

Excessive oil usage in my 07 Camry SE. Didn't realize Toyota was offering to fix the issue, as I never received the letter. on 09/24/16 I took my car to Antioch Toyota, they started the test and did not show me the tamper proof stickers they put on when they start the oil consumption test. They only verbally told me not to touch any of the stickers placed on the dipstick and the engine oil cap. When the oil lamp light came on I took the car back. The service manager had the car inspected and said the test would have to be restarted as one of the stickers under the car by the oil pan was tampered with. Now I'm certain that I didn't go under the car, the only person who went under my car was the Toyota technician, but they said the test have to be redone again. a week later service advisor calls me and tells me i have only 3 days to bring the car back as the deadline to drive enough miles and to bring the car back has approached. Since I was out of town I could not meet that deadline and asked them to extend it, as the test was started before the deadline and since it was their technician's fault to not put the sticker on correctly the 1st time, but they straight up denied. The service advisor David Sanchez at Antioch Toyota was very rude also, and said you can do what you have to do. I told them I will be filling a lawsuit because I felt like I was scammed, as they failed the first test to buy more time closer to the deadline so they didn't have to fix my car. I yet have to hear back from their customer relations manager Janice Kenkel. it has been 2 weeks she hasn't called me back. she spoke to me after I filed the complaint with Toyota customer service via their 800 #. I liked Toyota in the past, but after this experience I will stay away from them unless they can fix my issue.... Thanks for reading....

I want to join the class action lawsuit ASAP due to my 08 Camry consuming oil. 2nd part of 2nd oil consumption test failed yesterday, per Toyota dealership. Was told all 5 seals were gone so the test is void. This is the 2nd time my consumption was voided due to all the seals gone. Only Toyota serviced my vehicle so go figure where the seals went. My vehicle warranty is @ 35,000 miles from expiring. I'm feel that I am getting the run around from the dealership regarding my consumptions tests, etc.?

I have the same issue as most the above posts. 2006 scion tc drove off the dealer lot 9 months ago with 99k miles. I was following in the rental, noticed it was smoking. I checked the oil. Bone dry. Over the course of this 9 months. We have done a bit of work. Alignment, tires, air filter, oil changes, clutch master, clutch slave, the clutch and not to mention probably gonna need the whole motor gone through. Running it dry has happened. If you go 3000 miles you need to add 2 quarts. If u go 5000. You will be bone dry. 3 to 4 quarts but possibly kill the motor in the process. Its rough. Just noticed it was dry today. Got the oil changed 3000 miles ago and i was seeing the oil light flicker this is so frustrating. I want my motor gone over too. Its the same motor as 2007. Help me

I took my 2007 Scion TC when I got the notice and they performed the 1st test and my car barely passed.. So I took it for a second test under the advise of the service advisor.. On the second phase of the second test, it was voided because the tape came undone, so I started the test again, and again the tape or marking used on the oil drain plug, came loose again.. On the third try, the test was and the car failed. The oil light was coming on.. But by this time the allowed period and allowed mileage had expired..Now Toyota and the dealer are telling me that they are sorry, but they cannot perform the repair unless I pay the cost out of pocket.. This is crazy, because, the dealer did not do the proper preparation of the surfaces where the tape was being applied and it took them over 3000 miles before the test could be completed..and it failed miserably..So where do I go from here??

The engine of my 2008 Toyota Camry seized up a few days ago, due to there being no oil present. There were approximately 1000 left until the next oil change was needed. Although my husband takes my vehicle to be routinely serviced at the Toyota dealership, we still end up adding oil between the necessary times for an oil change. Toyota has never mentioned excessive oil consumption to us, or any addtional measurements needed to ensure longevity of the life of our vehicle due to this error. There have been so many people affected by this issue. They really need to be held accountable. Please tell me how to, and if it's still possible, join this lawsuit.
