2007 Toyota SCION TC Engine problems & defects.

Toyota SCION TC Engine problems : 5.

I Purchased My Car New From The Dealership And My First Oil Changes I Went To The Dealership Because Of Oil Consumption And They Said It Was Normal For The Car To Use 1 Quart For Every 1200 Miles. Every Mechanic I Have Spoken To Said To Me That Is Not Normal For A New Car Used For Daily Driving. Now I’m At 73k Miles And I Have Records Of Every Oil Change Being Done At Every 3k Miles And Between Oil Changes I Have To Put In At Least 4 To 5 Quarts In Between And Now I Have A Rod Knock Sounds Like A Bearing Due To No Oil In The Car When I Checked Right Before My Next Oil Change. I Researched The Internet And Realized That This Is Very Common And toyota Is Aware Of The Oil Consumption Issue On These Engines But Has Not Issues A Recall Just A Tsb. Since The Engine Burned Oil So That It Was Empty I Believe That Is A Product Defect (covered Under Warranty) And The Tsb Shows That Its A Piston Rod Bearing Issue In The 2az-fe Engine. I Also Believe That toyota Is Taking Advantage Of The Consumer By Stating That It Is Normal To Have 1quart Of Oil Loss Per Every 600-1200 Miles. That Does Not Even Make Sense For A New Car With A Modern Engine And Its In The Users Manual. This Is Happening To Alot Of People And Its Between 50k To 100k Miles When The Warranty Expires. Because Of This The toyota Dealership Told Me That I Need A New Engine And They Wont Help Me. They Are Making Money From This Engine Defect And Are Taking Full Advantage Of It Without Placing A Recall Only A Tsb.

There Is A Terrible Oil Consumption Problem With This Car. My Daughter’s Engine Blew Up Because Of It. If You Do Not Plan On Checking Your Oil Every Singleday.do Not Buy This Car. All I Could Get From Anyone Is That I Was Supposed To Take It To The Dealer With An Oil Problem. I Am Not A Mechanic How The Heck Would I Know That? Be Forewarned….and I Am A toyota Buyer Through And Through, I Might Sell My Cars After This. *tr

I Noticed The Oil Level On The Dip Stick Was At The “need To Add A Quart” Mark After 5,000 Miles. The 2007 Tc Only Has 65k Miles. I Noticed That Was Pretty Strange Given In My Experience With Other Cars, They Will Only Need About A Quart Of Oil At 150k To 200k Plus Miles. I Have Brought This Matter To The toyota Service Representative When I Took The Car In For The 65k Miles Service And Of Course The Typical Default, Trained, Conditioned, Dealer Service Representative Response Was That It Is Normal To Have This Amount Of Burning Oil. It Is After I Read Other Tc Owner Reports That Were Filed With Nhtsa That This Is Reoccurring Problem With This Vehicle. I Am Requesting Nhtsa To Look Into A Recall To Fix This Issue. Thanks. *tr

The Engine Was Consuming Oil At An Alarmingly Fast Rate. Dealership Insisted Oil Levels Were Ok When Car Was Brought In To toyota Dealership For All Oil Changes Regularly. Now Less Than 115k Miles And The Engine Is Done And Car Is Worthless. Dealership Refuses To Take Responsibility For A Known Defect In The Engine.

For Over A Year I Have Noticed That My Car Has Been Consuming Large Amounts Of Oil. I Noticed It When I Still Had 1,000 Miles Until My Next Oil Change. My Check Engine Light Came On And I Immediately Went To Advance Auto Parts To Check The Oil. I Needed To Put 3 And A Half Liters In Because It Was Almost Completely Out. scion Tc‘s Only Hold 4 Liters Of Oil. So My Car Burned Up Almost All Of The Oil And I Had Only Driven 2,000 Miles Since My Last Oil Change!! This Is Absurd, I Bought My Car Brand New And Have Kept It Serviced Regularly And Just Paid It Off! I Should Not Be Having This Problem, But I’ve Done My Research And Know That This Is Not An Error On My Part For Not Taking Proper Care Of My Car, It Is A Defect In The Engine. I Have A Friend Who Services Cars At toyota And He Said That The Engine Was Built Backward And That’s Why The Oil Consumption Is Very Large. The Only Way To Fix This Is To Rebuild The Engine. I Really Am Upset By This Because Like I Said Earlier I Bought This Brand New And Have It Paid Off. I Should Not Be Having This Issue, And Since There Is A Defect In The Way The Engine Was Built I Would Hope That toyota Would Recall This Because It Is Not Up To Quality Standard Plus They Need To Take Ownership Of Their Mistake, And This Is A Big One That I Shouldn’t Have To Go Into Financial Debt Over.
