Summary of Complaint

I JUST PURCHASED MY 2012 TOYOTA CAMRY WITH 77,000 MILES ON THE SPEDOMETER. ABOUT A WEEK LATER AFTER DRIVING THIS VEHICLE. I NOTICE THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT, ABS LIGHT, AND BRAKE LIGHT ALL CAME ON AT THE SAME TIME. THE LIGHTS WILL NOT GO OUT UNTIL YOU TURN OFF THE VEHICLE. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU START THE VEHICLE, THESE LIGHTS COME ON AND IT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO TAKE THE VEHICLE OUT OF PARK. THIS VEHICLE ALSO FEELS LIKE YOU ABOUT TO HYDROPLANE WHILE DRIVING AROUND 25 MPH, WHICH FEELS UNSAFE. I'VE TAKEN THIS VEHICLE BAKE TO THE DEALER, AND THEY STATED THAT THEY NEEDED TO REPLACE A BRAKE ASSEMBLY SWITCH. I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH ON THIS SAME VEHICLE, AND FOUND OUT THAT THE BRAKE ASSEMBLY SWITCH WAS CHANGE AND THEY STILL HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. THE TRACTION CONTROL, ABS LIGHT, AND BRAKE LIGHT ONLY COMES ON WHEN YOU APPLY THE BRAKES AT LOW SPEED.

Consumer Location: DRACUT, MA
VIN: 4T1BF1FK5CU****

Summary of Complaint

OUR 2012 CAMRY SE HAD APPROXIMATELY 66,000 MILES WHEN THE BRAKE PROBLEM OCCURRED. I WAS THE DRIVING VEHICLE ON THE HIGHWAY ON 7/30/18 GOING 55 MPH WHEN I HEARD AN WHISTLING SOUND FOR 2-3 MINUTES. WHEN I ARRIVED AT MY DESTINATION 10 MILES FROM MY HOME I SMELT A BURNING SMELL WHICH SEEMED TO COME FROM THE LEFT REAR WHEEL. WHEN I TOUCHED THE WHEEL IT WAS VERY HOT AND WOULD HAVE BURNED MY HAND IF I LEFT IT THERE. I DROVE HOME LATER AND THE SAME THING OCCURRED. I THREW SOME WATER ON IT AND A CLOUD OF STEAM AROSE. I CALLED MY MECHANIC WHO SAID IT WAS MOST LIKELY A STUCK DISC BRAKE CALIBER AND THAT HE HAD SEEN THE PROBLEM BEFORE ON 2012 & 2013 CAMRYS. THE MECHANIC DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS A SEIZED CALIBER PISTON WHICH REQUIRED THE REPLACEMENT OF THE LEFT REAR CALIBER, PADS AND ROTOR FOR OVER $500.00. MY CONCERN IS THAT I HAVE NEVER HAD A SAFETY PROBLEM LIKE THIS OCCUR IN ANY VEHICLE NEVER MIND A FAIRLY NEW CAMRY WHICH PASSED A SAFETY INSPECTION AT TOYOTA AS PART OF AN OIL CHANGE ON 2/20/18 WHEN THE VEHICLE HAD 63,253 MILES. IN MY OPINION THERE IS A DEFECT IN THE DESIGN OR IN THE QUALITY OF THE BRAKE SYSTEM WHICH COULD LEAD TO A BRAKE SYSTEM FIRE OR BRAKE FAILURE.
