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.

problem #3

Jan 062016

Camry Hybrid

  • 39,970 miles


The brakes failed on this car January 6, 2016, causing me to collide with the rear end of a truck while going about five miles per hour. I was in normal traffic, on a city street, coming to a slow stop, and as I approached the vehicle about 15 feet in front of me, waiting in line for the turn lane, I depressed the brake, which was hard as a rock. However, the car would not stop; consequently, I hit the other vehicle. I was going so slow that the airbags did not deploy. Fortunately no one was hurt, although my vehicle sustained about $1200 in damage. I believe this problem was caused by either the ABS brake actuator or the brake pedal stroke sensor. However, the car was seen by a Toyota corporation representative who stated in writing there is nothing wrong with the car. This car has already been repaired under a service campaign for the fluid reservoir filter. However, there is also a warranty enhancement program (ze-1), number pol14-04, for the brake actuator assembly and skid control ECU/brake pedal stroke sensor. Our VIN is listed in the group of affected vehicles.

Car lost brakes while making a right turn on a city street. All the brake warning lights came (ABS, parking brake, brake warning) on along with the vehicle stability control warning. Had to press brakes all the way and even then the braking was very minimal. It was hard to bring the car to a stop. Intermittently the steering wheel also became hard to turn. Pulled to side, turned off car. Started car up and the same set of warning lights remained on drove car to Toyota dealership which was 1 block away. Braking was hard, but could bring car to a stop dealer said brake computer was malfunctioning and needed to be replaced. Said there was no recall / warranty coverage from Toyota on this issue.

Vehicle 2 was stopped for on coming traffic to make a left turn. Vehicle 1 (the 2011 Toyota Camry hybrid) driver pressed the brake to the floor to make a sudden stop. The car did not seem to respond to the braking. The tires did not skid, the ABS brakes did not engage and the car did not seem to slow down significantly, but seemed to glide into the rear end of vehicle 2. the stopping distance of 3 car lengths at 35 mph should not have resulted in this type of collision - vehicle 1 was totaled.
