NHTSA to investigate Toyota Camry hybrid with alleged brake defects

The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) stated that it is going to investigate the brake problems in the ’07-’08 hybrid Toyota Camry models, as reported by the Los Angeles Times on Monday, January 27.

According to reports, there have already been 59 complaints that reached the NHTSA regarding the defective brakes, including two in which accidents resulted. The complaints vary from brake delays, unusual effort in stepping on the brake pedal, or expensive brake repairs. Some of the complainants, who are insisting on a recall, also alleged the automaker had knowledge of the brake problem that plagued the older Camry hybrid models.

Toyota spokesman John Hanson said they will work with the NHTSA to help solve the problem.
