According to a report in the East Bay Times (Walnut Creek, CA), Roger Hogan, owner and president of Claremont Toyota and Capistrano Toyota dealerships, filed a defect petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in September, calling for an investigation and safety recall of certain Toyota Hybrids.

The news article says Hogan asked NHTSA to investigate “a dangerous safety defect” in the 2010-2015 Prius (Liftback) and 2012-2015 Prius Plug-In Hybrid; the 2012-2014 Camry Hybrid; and the 2013-2015 Avalon Hybrid vehicles.
