Recall Alert: 2010 Toyota Camry
Posted: Feb. 10, 2010
Ever feel like we've been though this before? It's another Toyota recall -- this time for the 2010 Toyota Camry.
CBS News reports, "Toyota said Tuesday it is recalling about 7,300 of its 2010 Camrys to check a power-steering hose that may come into contact with a brake tube."
Inside Line adds, "The 2007-'10 Camry is also part of the recall of 2.3 million Toyota vehicles for sticking accelerator pedals, as well as a recall for floor mats that may trap the accelerator pedal. Notice of this latest Camry recall was tucked in at the bottom of the recall notice for the 2010 Toyota Prius and 2010 Lexus HS 250h for a brake problem."
Kicking Tires explains, "This recall only affects Camrys with a four-cylinder engine. The problem is with a power-steering hose that may be in contact with a front brake tube, which could create a hole in the tube and allow brake fluid to leak. This could negatively impact the effectiveness of braking in the vehicle."
So with the two recalls that the 2010 Camry (which is Toyota's most popular model in the U.S.) is subject to, drivers could experience both unintended acceleration and a loss of braking effectiveness.
If you own one of the affected Camrys, you should get a notice from Toyota in the mail in mid-February. Or, you can visit Toyota Recall Information - 2009-2010 Toyota Recall List
