Firm Investigates Hybrid Problems Featured

By Staff Writer January 12, 2020

McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP (MWA) announced it is investigating the following Toyota Hybrid vehicles linked to possible braking issues and defects: 2010-15 Prius or Prius Plug-in Hybrid; 2012-14 Camry Hybrid; and the 2013-15 Avalon Hybrid.

A petition filed in September 2019 with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by Roger Hogan, the owner and president of Claremont Toyota and Capistrano Toyota dealerships, identified 117 complaints about the brake systems in Toyota Hybrid vehicles since 2010, including 60 that reported crashes.  In addition to the illumination of the vehicle’s warning lamps, the alleged brake defect may result in increasing stopping distance, the reduction of hydraulic pressure within the vehicle’s brake system, and the deactivation of brake assist and stability control.

Toyota has initiated a warranty extension program, agreed to provide repairs free of charge, and will reimburse owners for the cost of previous repairs to the brake booster assembly.
