Toyota Camry voluntary safety recalls over power steering hose in U.S.

Published on February 17th, 2010

Toyota Motor Corporation has recently been on the receiving end of bad publicity, press and outrage from the public, especially Toyota car owners, over the recent recall of certain Toyota models that were found to have defective parts or components.

It has come to Trafficmagonline’s attention that Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), United States is set to conduct a voluntary safety recall campaign on approximately 7,300 units of the current 2010 Toyota Camry. This is to inspect a power steering hose that may be in contact with a front brake tube. This contact could leak to a hole in the brake tube and cause a brake fluid leak, increased brake pedal stroke and greater vehicle stopping distance.


UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd, the sole and exclusive distributor of Toyota vehicles in Malaysia, breathed a huge sigh of relief very recently as Toyota Motor Corporation Japan confirmed that Toyota Camry customers and owners in Malaysia are not affected by this voluntary recall exercise.

UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd would like to advise that there is no cause for concern on this matter.

    I bought a toyota camry in o3 and in 05 I was having trouble with the steering and I brought it in to toyota and nothing was done about it. I latter found out that camry was being recalled in europe for the same thing. I fought toyota tooth and nail to have it fixed and on 6/26/o6 they agreed to replace the steering shaft calling it customer participation towards good will repair. Now this defect is all over the news in this country I feel I’ve been cheated and toyota owes me two hundred and fifty seven dollars.
