The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday it is opening an investigation into 30,000 older Toyota Camry hybrids over complaints of braking problems.
NHTSA said it has 59 complaints alleging intermittent loss of braking in 2007-08 Camry hybrids, including two crashes. The complaints all allege repeated incidents of delayed braking or increased brake pedal effort. Approximately 40 percent of the incidents occurred at speeds of 40 miles per hour or more.
"The complaints show an apparent increasing trend, with over 55 percent received within the past eight months," NHTSA said in documents opening the investigation.Read Article
