Toyota recalls Camrys over brake-assist problems

(FOX Business) — The Japan-based automaker said in a press release Wednesday that the recall impacts certain Camrys from the 2018-2019 model year. 

Toyota explained that some parts in the power assist system – which is activated when a driver pushes the brake pedal – can wear out prematurely and cause the system to fail.

While the brakes themselves would still work if that were to happen, losing that assist could increase the likelihood that a driver could crash, the company said.

Owners of Camrys from the 2018-2019 model year will be notified directly about the recall in January, and Toyota dealers will inspect the vacuum pump on the brake-assist system and either repair or replace it at no charge to customers.

  1. This will cause many people who planned on or were looking into buying one of these models of Camry or a Camry in general because they might be thinking and be scared that other Toyota models will have malfunctions as well which will decrease the companies image but the quality control does seem very good which will increase their image on people looking into Toyota.

  2. What is the cost of a recall to a company’s image, explain? Why don’t companies do a better job on quality control to insure that recalls are minimal or non- Not only do recalls impactfully harm a companies image, the cost of a recall is not cheap. Not only would Toyota have to pay for the parts and the mechanics of fixing each and every car, but they would be paying for the cost of labor as well. Companies that recall may also have to worry about being sued by consumers. Companies should have enough policies and insurances that can guarantee quality control so that recalls are minimal or non existent.

  3. The cost of a recall can be very damaging to a company’s image and ruin their reputation because it shows that the company is not concerned about customer safety. Companies don’t do a better job on quality control to insure that recalls are minimal because of the cost of inspection.
