2009 Base Camry
By balkania on
2009 Toyota Camry 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Bought the car brand new (3 miles on it). Currently I have 130,000 miles on it and I've had zero issues. I drive mostly highway, very little stop and go. Out of boredom I changed the spark plugs and the PCV Valve at around 80,000 miles. Been changing my own oil since the 50,000 mile mark. The only issue is the oil consumption. From the 50,000 mile mark to now the car would consume 2 quarts out of the 4.5 i put in over 5000 miles. On the most recent oil change I only got back 1.5 quarts of the 5 quarts I put in .(added 1/2 quart at around 3000 miles). Seems like the car has turned a corner
There is a fix for the oil consumption. All 2007-2009 v4 Camry's consume oil. There is a defect as admitted by Toyota with the piston and piston rings. Refer to Toyota T-SB-0094-11.
