      Scotty Kilmer Hi Mr. Kilmer have you done a video about the Scion im interested in your opinion on them.

      @4 gauge I love Toyota and the brand in general but Toyota living off this false reliability reputation has to end. I've seen thousands of Toyota's for sale online that have issues and the new owners end up with huge headaches for not doing research.

      @R Barnhart Toyota is a grossly over rated brand,I've seen many a Toyota from Japan on the tow hook,more then a few times.

      Thanks for taking this issue on. Too many people have been duped into thinking Toyota's are bulletproof not knowing some years and models have issues. Keep up the great work Scotty.

          Swapping out a PCV valve did on my wifes 08 Camry make a big difference for just $8 and 5 mins. Worth looking into if you have a oil consuming Camry.

            I missed the warranty on this motor in my RAV4 by 2000 miles - I found out about it too late. I was burning a quart of oil every 300 miles! Toyota REFUSED to fix the car, so I had to pay for the repair ($3000) myself.

            "Kinda evil on that one" - nice way to keep your loyal customers, Toyota. I'll NEVER buy another one.

              Yeah, i have an 09 camry hybrid and toyota refused to fix the issue because my car was made on december 2008, even thought is an 09, so i went over the "10 year" limit for 3 months... they always wanna clean their hands when the mistake was made on their part. SORRY I DIDNT FIND OUT ABOUT THE OIL CONSUMPTION UNTIL AFTER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY EXPIRED TOYOTA!!!

            Made in America doesn't mean anything anymore. It's a garbage. I would never want anything made in America anymore or China. They are make stuff terrible.

                Scotty doesn't know what he's talking about. This whole video it a rambling opinion piece.

                He says, ''They obviously didn't have the quality control in America''. Really?? Where is the data to support that. What makes it so ''obvious''? Toyota vehicles built in America vs those built in Japan have been shown by Toyota's own documents to have the same reliability, warranty repair rates, and build quality. Some toyotas of the models he mentioned had parts that had engineering/design issues and those parts were later re-designed. If it was an assembly or quality control issue there would be no need for a redesign. Those same cars had issues all over the world. There is even a Youtube of a Russian guy in Russia talking about it and he shows the bad ring design. Anytime you have something that has over 100,000 parts you will occasionally get a part or two with a design issue, its unavoidable, and for the most part Toyota does a fantastic job.

                The 3,000 mile oil change interval is completely unnecessary and thousands of used oil analysis on Bobistheoilguy prove as much. Its good to check the oil level regularly in an old car, but any mechanic that recommends a change at 3,000 miles is a scam.

                In other countries 5-10,000 mile oil change intervals are typical even with conventional. Some German cars even recommend 15-20,000 mile change intervals. Check your oil level but don't waste your money with 3K change intervals.

                  I really hope the engineers got fired for that...that is a major money loss from toyota and it gave em a bad company wants to look bad

                  But its good that they offered to fix the problem rather then give customers the bird like some auto company's do

                                    We purchased a 2009 Toyota Corolla new from the dealer and it is a piece of junk. The oil has to always be checked, the paint started peeling 3 years in, it makes a loud noise when we start it, and it is extremely uncomfortable. We tried to get them to fix the paint and they said it wasn't covered. Really disappointed with this car.

                                      I have a 2009 Vibe GT with this engine.  Someone else with the same car asked me if I had the oil consumption issue, now I know why!

                                        But if the problem ended with the 2011 model year then why did my 2012 Camry have excessive carbon buildup on the pistons preventing the engine from turning over, at only 47k miles, resulting in a $4600 repair?! Synthetic oil changed regularly since new.

                                          The 3sgte in my Celica is a Yamaha engine, but only revs to 6K, so I guess I'm OK.

                                                  So, why would Toyota make 2 different engines for the same basic cars?......If same engine, would it not have same engine parts in each engine?

                                                    How's the reliability of the new 2018/2019 Camry 2.5 liter engine? I'm considering purchasing one, but I am a little concerned about possible oil consumption since it uses 0W-16, which is an extremely thin oil. Is there any data or information out there that points to any potential issues?

The 2zz-ge engine that was co-designed with Yamaha didn't have oil burning issues. The all Toyota 1zz-fe from 00-02 had oil consumption issues that Toyota fixed for the 03+ years Celica (Corolla & Matrix). The 2zz had some oil starvation issues during excessive g-forces like a lot of autocross events. You can use the baffled 1zz-fe oil pan from the MRS on the 2zz and solve that. The 1zz in the 8th gen Corolla's also burned oil. There is also some older Toyota 4 cylinders that consumed oil in the pickups. If there's one flaw to Toyota is their 4 cylinders piston design can sometimes be bad

It was made by New United Motor Manufacturing in California. A joint venture between gm and toyota. It was closed and the plant was sold to tesla if memory serves correct
