NHTSA to investigate Toyota Camry hybrid brake problem

After receiving numerous consumer complaints of brake problems in their Toyota Camry hybrid sedans, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has decided to conduct an investigation regarding the issue, a report from the Los Angeles Times stated on Monday, January 27. The agency said the brake problem could affect about 30,000 ’07-’08 models of the hybrid sedan.

At least 59 complaints have already been received by the NHTSA, two of which reportedly involved accidents. Drivers reportedly have experienced brake delays and a need for expensive brake repairs with these cars. About 40 percent of the braking problems were observed in vehicles running at a speed of more than 40 mph.

Toyota spokesperson John Hanson said they are currently cooperating with the NHTSA to figure out the problem in the affected vehicles.
