More 'not so good' news for Toyota

Toyota vehicles deemed "poor" in crash test

(CBS News) Toyota is facing a new safety challenge, thanks to a new set of crash tests. Two of the car maker's most popular vehicles received the lowest possible grade.

It is one more setback for a company that's had a year of bad publicity.

The Toyota Camry, the nation's top-selling car, has the highest government safety rating. But the 2013 model received a rating of "poor" in a new test by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The insurance institute's Adrian Lund said, "Toyota Camry is still a top safety pick, according to our older criteria. And then you have this new test which shows bad performance, and we need to integrate that into our overall evaluations of vehicles."
