Hi fella's i joined this site because my son bought a 2011 toyota camry and when he told me the salesman told him to change the oil every 10,000 miles i was shocked. Now I come from the old school of changing every 3,000 and that was my intention to do so. I aslo always read the owners manual. The part on oil consumption really troubled me. If I read it correctly it said the it was normal for the car to use 1.1 qts of oil every 600 miles, if it uses more then contact dealer. this bothers me because my son is not very mechanically inclined and he does alot of traveling. Also, I always thought if a car was burning oil there was a problem or a leak. Can some one clear this up for me?

I have an '09 Camry (2.4L engine - not same as your son's 2.5L, though). My owners manual also says 5K oil changes for normal or severe service.

My car uses about 1/2 quart every 5K miles; pretty decent since I run 90% highway and use 5W-20 oil. I run synthetic in the winter at 7.5K intervals. Your son's car may very well use 1 quart or more in the 10,000 mile interval... and there is nothing wrong with this.

So my advice is: choose an interval both you and he are comforable with. If you know he will never check the oil, I would go with a 4K interval on a good dino oil and forget it.

If you change the oil yourself, let me know how you like the filter design.

Syn oil and 10,000 miles seems like a match.

it can go 10k on synthetic, just make sure it is full on dipstick...my in laws camry just turned 300,000 miles and he has changed oil maybe 10 times and many times he had only 2 quarts in engine...i changed filter on car yesterday and from now on he is just going to add oil instead of yearly oil change, it burns a qt every 500 miles after all his abuse

1 liter (1.1 Qt) every 600 miles isnt normal. It just has to be that bad before the manufacturer is going to replace the engine.

If you use the correct 0W20 Synthetic 10,000 mi OCI will be fine. If you use 5W20 conventional or blend change it every 5000 miles.

Doesn't mean its idiot owners won't.


+1 Most don't care as long as it makes it out of warranty


Those idiots are super idiots, because then they would be using the wrong grade. 0-20 is not available dino if I am not mistaken.

They'll probably fill them with 5w-20 and run it for 10k and blame Toyota when the engine goes boom.

I have a 2011 Camry and have the same issue I am continuing to change my 0-20W at 5,000 miles. I heard that Toyota 0-20W is produced by Mobile 1 and other than Toyota Motor Oil 0-20W at the dealer the only other 0-20W I have found is Mobile 1 green cap at Walmart in quarts for about $6.50 each.
