Complaint - Service Brakes

WHILE DRIVING AT 35 MILES PER HOUR, THE BRAKE LIGHT ON THE DASHBOARD CAME ON, BRAKE PEDAL BEGAN GOING ALL THE WAY DOWN WHILE BRAKING, AND THE BRAKE PEDAL BEGAN MAKING NOISE. I STOPPED THE CAR, OPEN THE HOOD AND FOUND THAT ALL MY BRAKE FLUID WAS GONE. THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP WAS NEARBY I DROVE THE CAR SLOWLY TO THE DEALERSHIP. THEY CHECKED THE BRAKE SYSTEM ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT ALL THE BRAKE FLUID WAS IN THE BRAKE BOOSTER. MY SERVICE ADVISER TOLD ME THE BRAKE SYSTEM FAILED DUE TO BAD SEALS BETWEEN THE MASTER CYLINDER AND THE BRAKE BOOSTER. NOW THE MASTER CYLINDER AND BRAKE BOOSTER NEED TO BE REPLACED. I PURCHASED THE HIGHLANDER BRAND NEW IN 2008. THE VEHICLE IS ONLY 5 YEARS OLD WITH APPROXIMATELY 78,420 MILES ON IT AND HAS BEEN SERVICED EVERY 5,000 MILES EVER SINCE I PURCHASED IT. THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO A VEHICLE THAT HAS BEEN WELL MAINTAINED. IT'S A SERIOUS SAFETY MATTER, AND MY BRAKES HAD JUST BEEN REPLACED ALONG WITH THE BRAKE FLUID AT THE SAME DEALERSHIP ON OCTOBER 02, 2013.
