 Description of the problemOur 2012 camry se had approximately 66,000 miles when the brake problem occurred. I was the driving vehicle on the highway on 7/30/18 going 55 mph when i heard an whistling sound for 2-3 minutes. When i arrived at my destination 10 miles from my home i smelt a burning smell which seemed to come from the left rear wheel. When i touched the wheel it was very hot and would have burned my hand if i left it there. I drove home later and the same thing occurred. I threw some water on it and a cloud of steam arose. I called my mechanic who said it was most likely a stuck disc brake caliber and that he had seen the problem before on 2012 & 2013 camrys. The mechanic diagnosed the problem as a seized caliber piston which required the replacement of the left rear caliber, pads and rotor for over $500. 00. My concern is that i have never had a safety problem like this occur in any vehicle never mind a fairly new camry which passed a safety inspection at toyota as part of an oil change on 2/20/18 when the vehicle had 63,253 miles. In my opinion there is a defect in the design or in the quality of the brake system which could lead to a brake system fire or brake failure.
