The Toyota Camry, a top selling Toyota sedan, is just one of the many Toyota cars now placed on a Toyota recall list for significant safety problems related to unintended or sudden acceleration.
Consumers, government groups and Toyota recall accident attorneys are looking at the ramifications of current Toyota recalls affecting over a million vehicles, with many thousands of Camry cars affected.
The sudden acceleration issue has been brewing for months, but after testimony from Toyota staffers and leaders at the U.S. Dept. of Transportation, Congressional oversight committees are turning up the heat on the Japanese automaker to find out what is wrong with their vehicles and fix them.
Toyota has included Camry model years 2007-2010 in recalls the company says are related to defective floor mats and sticky gas pedals. Toyota counsels drivers to wait for individual letters from the company telling them when they can take their cars to local dealerships to have them fixed. Akio Toyoda, the head of the company, recently announced plans for a “smart pedal” that would be able to cut acceleration when the gas and brake pedals are depressed. However, consumers are still wondering what originally caused the sudden acceleration issue.
As Camry owners continue to look at the effects of the gas pedal recalls, Toyota has also announced a smaller recall specific to the 2010 Camry. In some of these vehicles, according to Toyota, problems with the power steering hose can create a brake fluid leak, which would lengthen the braking distance needed to stop the vehicle. Toyota Camry drivers also continue to experience problems with sudden acceleration. According to recent reports, one Kentucky driver is currently recuperating after his Camry accelerated on its own and drove over an embankment.
Although Toyota is offering to fix defective vehicles, drivers are left with significant liability in the meantime. Toyota Camry owners may face unforeseen safety issues that can result in accidents, huge medical bills, loss of work and much more.
