Toyota Camry Recall 10V040000

Toyota Recalls Certain 2010 Camrys Due to Possible Brake Fluid Leak

Brakes, March 4, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview

Summary:

Toyota is recalling certain 2010 Camrys because the length of the power steering pressure hose on 4-cylinder engines may be insufficient, leaving a gap. This may cause the brake tube to interfere with the crimp, wear, and then perforate. This can cause a leak in the brake fluid, which adversely impacts braking performance. Dealers will replace or adjust the brake tube free of charge.
