Toyota Camry (2017 – 2018)

Published on 10. 05. 2022

Problem description:

Due to the material used, the caps on the vane inside the vacuum pump may wear prematurely and could become stuck between the vane and the vacuum pump housing. Consequently, the caps may damage the vane and other components inside the pump, failing to supply a vacuum to the brake booster. As a result, the brake performance could be suddenly reduced without prior warning, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Toyota Camry vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 6 July 2017 and 27 February 2018.

Toyota recall code: 21SMD-088
Affected models: Camry – only individually imported vehicles destined for the US market

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Toyota dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
