Toyota Camry Recall 10V040000

Toyota Recalls Certain 2010 Camrys Due to Possible Brake Fluid Leak

Recall Details

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.
