Here’s a bit of background: Toyota has already called a service campaign or a warranty extension on two separate issues for the 2007-2011 Camry Hybrid. A service campaign is when the automaker makes the repairs once the consumer brings the car to a dealer. But it’s still not a full-blown recall, which, according to CR, "is more comprehensive and widely published than a mere service campaign, and owners don’t have to wait for a problem to happen before qualifying for the repair. Besides that, unlike extended warranties, recalls don’t expire and are performed proactively." To summarize, recalls are better for the consumer.
