Toyota Camry hybrid under investigation
The Toyota Camry hybrid has been under investigation by federal safety administrators since the beginning of 2014. At that time, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had received nearly 60 complaints involving these vehicles. Complaints primarily revolved around potential braking problems that could affect as many as 30,000 cars.
Braking problems included two primary issues. The first is a possible clogged brake-fluid reservoir filter, which could lead to temporary loss of the front brake assist system. The second issued involves a faulty ABS actuator, which could cause the ABS function to de-activate and make it difficult for the driver to put sufficient pressure on the brake to stop the car.
Warranty enhancement, but no recall
Following the investigation by the NHTSA, Toyota announced a “warranty enhancement” program to provide warranty coverage for these specific brake issues. However, the company has come short of issuing a recall for the vehicles, despite urging by Consumer Reports to do just that. The publication has stated on its website that problems involving braking function are a “serious safety concern.” Recalls tend to reach a wider market base than a simple warranty enhancement program and owners can get the issue addressed before they experience a problem on the road.
It is possible that the NHTSA will decide to issue a Toyota Camry hybrid recall once their investigation is complete. However, the investigation process by the federal regulation agency can be long and often does not result in any definitive action. Toyota could issue a recall of their vehicles, but has chosen not to do so at this point. This leaves many Camry owners unaware and vulnerable to possible manufacturer automotive defects that could lead to serious accidents and injuries.
