Problems with 2008 Toyota Camry 4 cyl

Issue Status: Discussion

I didn't think I add excessive oil consumption. My car has about 113000 miles on it. At about 40,000 miles it had a front wheel bearing go out on it. That was under warranty. Next a rear wheel bearing went out. My car vibrates when in drive, my foot is on the break and the AC is running. My mechanic says that is a faulty compressor. I have changed my oil most of the time using Valvoline or Castrol. And never letting it get low. Now when I started up in the mornings it is puffing blue smoke, that started at about a 105000 miles. It's never run hot, I've never even had to add but maybe a touch of antifreeze. Obviously I have a lemon. This is the 4th Toyota I have owned. I bought this Camry when it came off of a lease. It came out of New Jersey. It will cost me about $1,500 - rework the valves seals. The other Camry, had about 280000 on it, didn't smoke and I still see it around town. We have an 02 Avalon with 220000 miles and no problems whatsoever. All I can say is Toyota completely screwed up on the production of these Camrys. Has anyone else had this valve problem. Thanks

Same here with my 2007 Camry and they ran the test and claims another test can't be done until Sept 2016 and the warranty out Oct 2016, and now saying it's too late. But someone else with the same issue got his car repaired. I am sure you have to haggle to get some attention but why should I have to subject myself to this every time I go when they know there is a problem but refuse to fix it. Other states had a class action suite for the same thing so seems like one is needed nationwide.

I have a 2008 Toyota Camry and it started blowing blue smoke at around 60,000 miles. As it wasn't burning oil I didn't think too much of it. At 95,000 it kind of bit the dust. I was driving to work one day and it started knocking real bad and when I would accelerate the car didn't want to go. We explained all the symptoms to repair shop and he said it sounded like the car threw a rod. I bought my camry because I did the research with consumer reports and I believed in the Toyota brand. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that my car could not even make it 100,000 miles. I feel that Toyota needs to stand behind their product and fix my car for free as this should not have happened.
