Toyota, Hyundai issue major recalls

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Jul 30, 2014

Consumer Reports is urging Toyota to recall nearly 180,000 Camry Hybrids because of faulty brake systems.  

Toyota is currently offering to fix brakes on 2007-2011 models for free for owners. 

The issues were investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but no recall was ordered. Instead Toyota initiated the service campaign to fix the issue.

There's also another recall for a popular auto maker. Hyundai is recalling thousands of Sonatas. It covers 883,000 cars, model years 2011-2014. 

The call is to fix the gear shift levers. The automaker said the automatic transmission shift cable can separate. 

No word on if there's been any crashes or injuries related to this problem. 

If you own a Sonata, you should get a letter from Hyundai between now and September.
