Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid. The contact stated that while driving approximately 20 mph, the vsc warning light illuminated continuously as the brake pedal abnormally traveled to the floorboard when engaged. The failure caused an increase in stopping distance when the contact was applying the brakes. The failure was recurring. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer however, they were unable to duplicate the problem. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 155,000.

Camry Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 48,000 miles
I have always noticed a delayed braking feeling in my 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid. Also, when traveling at a higher rate of speed I notice the car shaking when just applying the brakes to even gradually slow down. This morning I rearended someone because of what I feel is the delayed braking. ABS did not kick in and no airbag deployed. I was traveling under 25mph and was on a decline. I should not have had to apply the brakes as hard as I felt I was pressing but was so shocked when the car would not stop.

Camry Hybrid

I do not know if this is a complaint and write as I see the Toyota prius brake investigation. I have a Camry hybrid and had a brake problem last spring. On Saturday 4-25-09, my vsc/ABS/warning light came on while I was near the baierl Cadillac dealership. As I had leased from baierl Toyota, I pulled in the baierl Cadillac service as the brakes felt wrong and took two feet. The car did stop. They called baierl Toyota who said to drive up unless flashing warning lights. The lights were steady so I drove slowly without any accident from wexford pa to mars pa to the dealership. I called Monday (ordered part), tues (waiting for part for brakes) and wed(part in morning -need computer to calibrate). The car was returned and the brakes seem fine with no further vsc/ABS lights. I do not have the parts. I assume that baierl Toyota, mars, pa 16046 has the records and could tell you more. I did not pay more attention as it was taken care of by the dealership under warranty. My friend suggested that I notify you in the event that the hybrid brakes on the Camry should also be checked to help someone else.

Camry Hybrid

  • 20,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid. The contact stated that when she depressed the brake pedal, she felt a jolting jerk and the pedal went down to the floor when she applied it lightly. She took the vehicle to the dealership and the dealer recalibrated the stroke sensor. About 8-9 months later, the issue occurred again so she took the vehicle back to the dealership, and the stroke sensor was replaced. She stated that she noticed no problems since the latest repair. She had not called the manufacturer to-date. The current mileage was approximately 24,000. The failure mileage was approximately 20,000.
