NHTSA probes possible Camry malfunctions

In a move that could end up affecting some Camry owners in North Carolina, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has made a preliminary evaluation of possible brake defects in 2007 and 2008 Camry models.

Thus far, two accidents have been linked to the possible defect and the NHTSA is investigating whether any injuries or fatalities may be related.
