WASHINGTON — Toyota Motor North America is recalling about 227,400 Camry midsize sedans in the U.S. from the 2018-19 model years for an issue that could lead to a sudden loss of power braking assist.
“The involved vehicles have a system that provides power brake assist when the driver depresses the brake pedal. Specific components in a part of this system can prematurely wear and could lead to a sudden loss of power braking assist,” the automaker said in a news release Wednesday.
“Non-power assisted braking will remain functional,” Toyota said. “However, a sudden loss of power braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.”
A spokesman for the automaker did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
To fix the issue, dealers will inspect the vacuum pump and either repair or replace the part. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified in January.
