yes.. from 07-09 there were issues with oil burning/consumption in some of the engines. Toyota used lower tension piston rings and that allowed oil to seep by and get burned in the combustion chamber. It did not affect all of the engines. I'm trying to think how you could check that as a used car buyer.. I doubt a seller would want to expose that to a buyer. Probably smoke out the tail pipe or an overwhelming smell of oil burning in the intake manifold..
but remember.. not all of them had this issue. Just letting ya know what to look for.
