AFTER RESEARCHING ONLINE, I HAVE NOTICED THIS IS A VERY COMMON ISSUE AND TOYOTA ISSUED RECALLS OUT FOR 2006 & 2007 BUT HAS NOT ACKNOWLEDGED 2008 AS HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. I WAS ALMOST IN AN ACCIDENT AND NOTICED THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE THAT HAVE BEEN IN ACCIDENTS. WHY IS IT THAT NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE TO CORRECT THIS? FIRST, I HEARD AN AIRY SOUND WHEN BRAKING THEN A SOFT BRAKE PEDAL BEFORE ALMOST COMPLETE BRAKE FAILURE. THE HIGHLANDER TRULY FELT LIKE IT WAS NOT STOPPING. I LITERALLY HAD TO PUT MY COMPLETE BODY WEIGHT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL TO FINALLY GET IT TO STOP AS IT KEEPS SURGING FORWARD. IT WAS SCARY, TO SAY THE LEAST. I WAS IN A HEAVY POPULATED PARKING LOT. I COULD'VE HIT A PEDESTRIAN OR HIT ANOTHER CAR BECAUSE I COULDN'T GET THE CAR TO STOP FROM SURGING FORWARD. AFTER ALL THIS, FINALLY, LIGHTS APPEARED. (ENGINE LIGHT, BRAKE LIGHT, VSC LIGHT & SKID LIGHTS CAME ON). WOULDN'T YOU THINK AFTER JUST BEING FULLY SERVICED AT A TOYOTA DEALERSHIP, SOMETHING WOULD'VE BEEN NOTICEABLE? I REACHED OUT TO TOYOTA CORP. AND AGAIN I WAS TOLD THIS IS NOT COMMON AND NO RECALLS HAVE BEEN ISSUED. I SAW A VERY COMMON DENOMINATOR THAT ONCE THE HIGHLANDER HITS A CERTAIN MILEAGE THIS HAPPENS AND A VERY COSTLY MASTER CYLINDER AND BRAKE BOOSTER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. A PARKING LOT AND IN MOTION.
