NHTSA to probe brake problems of ’07-’08 hybrid Toyota Camrys

An investigation of certain Toyota Camry hybrids by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has begun after receiving numerous complaints of brake problems, a report by the Los Angeles Times stated on January 27.

The NTHSA reported that their office had received 59 total complaints, 55 percent of which occurred within the last eight months, of braking irregularities and issues related to the 2007-2008 hybrid Toyota Camry model. At least two of the complaints mentioned an accident occurring due to the brake problem. According to the NHTSA, 40 percent of the braking malfunctions occurred at speeds of more than 40 mph.

Most of the complainants, who alleged Toyota is aware of the issue, told the NHTSA that the automaker should voluntarily recall the affected vehicles and fix the problem for free.

Toyota said they will work with the NHTSA to figure out the issue.
