Toyota Camry Hybrid Recalls
As part of normal operation of the air conditioning system, condensation will accumulate in the condenser housing behind the dashboard. A drain is incorporated so that excess water can drain out. This drain hose can become plugged, the accumulated water can leak onto the airbag control module. This can result in an electrical short in the control module. If this were to occur the airbags could become disabled or deploy unexpectedly. Improper airbag operation increases the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. The power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort. Dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module to correct this concern.
An electrical short can develop in the windshield wiper switch assembly. As a result, the wipers may not function as expected. If the driver's visibility is reduced the risk of a crash increases. Dealers will replace the wiper switch assembly in affected vehicles to correct this concern.

These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

The Toyota technician said that he's only seen this part burn out when the...

It helped me save a life as I had no choice but to rush a teenage hit and run victim to a hospital late o e night. It was steadily accelerating past 130mph. I was completely shocked and even more grateful for getting me there w...
Bought our '07 Camry Hybrid new in December '06. Just passed the 90k mark. Only service (other than normal oil changes, tire rotations, etc.) was the brake shoes. Finally had to replace the rear shoes at 82k! The front shoes still look pristine! This thing just simply does not wear out brakes. They don't even get used until the car is under 10 mph when stopping. The 90k service light ca...
