Few things in driving are as scary as not having brakes when you need them, and that’s just what the latest recall from Toyota seeks to address for roughly 227,400 Toyota Camry sedans.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2018-19 Camrys. The cars have a system that provides power brake assist when a driver depresses the brake pedal, but some system components may prematurely wear, leading to a sudden loss of power braking assist. Though non-power-assisted braking would remain functional, this sudden loss of power braking assist could increase the risk of a crash.

To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the vacuum pump and repair or replace it for free. Owners will be notified by mid-January 2022. For further information, call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
