2008 Toyota Camry LE 2.4 2AZ-FE 4 cylinder from North America
Not bad - not as reliable as you would expect
Excessive oil consumption - this is a well known problem with 2AZ-FE engines.
Sun visors fell down.
Accelerator problems; recalled and fixed.
Car key broke in half after 47,500 miles.
This car feels safe to drive after the accelerator recall was finished.
The engine has consumed oil since the problem was discovered at only about 13,000 miles. The car uses about 1 quart every 1,500 to 2,000 (possibly 2,300) miles.
At this rate of oil consumption, I change the oil at the dealer every 3000 miles - because the oil consumption increases.
There are very large pillars on either side of the windshield; these could easily obstruct the view of a pedestrian.
The car key contains the fob, and only the lower part of the car key is metal. This is a very fragile design. With normal usage, the plastic part of the car key broke off, releasing the metal part after only 47,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

1. 1500-2000 miles per quart is not bad. Think back to the days of "700 miles per quart is normal oil consumption".
2. You'll never regret changing your oil every 3,000 miles.

Your 2008 Camry sounds identical to the one I used to own. Outside of your oil consumption problem, the two cars could have been twins!
