"I have been taking my vehicles to Hansma's for over 20 years. Pete has always given good advice, hasn't done unnecessary repairs. They do great work, and if something needs correcting they are quick to do so. A few years ago, when debating about repairing an older model car, Pete recommended not fixing it and moving on, even though this meant less income for the shop. I have personally recommended Hansma's to several friends, who have been extremely satisfied with the service there." - Doug

Excessive Oil Consumption - 2009 Toyota Camry

The most common problem reported by 2009 Toyota Camry owners according to www.carcomplaints.com was excessive oil consumption. Owners are finding that they run out of oil after only 1,931 km with no leaks or spills.  Ordinarily, if you go through a litre of oil every 5,000 km or less, you would suspect a leak. If there is no leak, then something else must be to blame. Generally speaking, a vehicle should use less than a litre of oil between oil changes. For regular oil changes, come see the experts at Hansma Automotive.
