Toyota Camry Hybrid Target of Recall Demand

Toyota Camry Hybrid Target of Recall Demand

Consumer Reports is pushing for Toyota to recall the Camry Hybrid.

According to a recent report, Consumer Reports is calling on Toyota to recall about 177,500 of its Camry Hybrids to address a potential problem with the vehicle’s power brakes. The publication is stating that the Japanese automaker’s choice of issuing a service campaign or a warranty extension on two different problems isn’t good enough. Consumer Reports believes that Toyota should recall the affected 2007-2011 Camry hybrids.

Toyota spokesman John Hanson said the company is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on a probe related to the issue and believes the actions “to address this issue are appropriate.” Complaints filed with NHTSA regarding the issue include a loss of braking performance, increased effort to press the brake pedal and other difficulties. NHTSA opened a preliminary evaluation probe into the 2007-2008 Toyota Camry sedans after receiving 59 complaints of intermittent loss of assisted braking.

The company has extended the warranty coverage of the anti-lock brake system’s brake actuator from three years or 36,000 miles to 10 years or 150,000 miles.

    Ironically; if GM bought Toyota, they would inject reliability into the Camry.
