I WISH TO REPORT A BREAKING PROBLEM WITH MY 2009 TOYOTA PRIUS. THIS OCCURED IN ABOUT SEPT. 2009. I HAVE A 2009 TOYOTA PRIUS THAT HAD ABOUT 18,000 MILES ON IT AT THE TIME OF THIS FAILURE. I HAD JUST PULLED OUT OF A GAS STATION (FOR GAS ONLY) WHEN I GOT A NUMBER OF WARNING LIGHTS ON THE DASH BOARD. (ABOUT 4 AS I RECALL) ALL THE WARNINGS WERE EITHER TIRE OF BREAK RELATED WARNINGS. I IMMEDIATELY NOTICED A BIG PROBLEM WITH THE BREAKS. ONLY MAXIMUM FOOT PRESURE WOULD ACTUATE THE BREAKS AND THEN THEY WOULD GRAB VERY HARD. FORTUNATELY, THE LOCAL TOYOTA DEALER WAS JUST AROUND THE CORNER, SO I CAREFULLY LIMPPED THE CAR IN. NO DAMAGE OR ACCIDENT WAS CAUSED BY THIS FAILURE. TOYOTA DID FIX THE PROBLEM THE NEXT DAY AND REPORTED THAT THE FRONT BREAKS HAD STOPPED WORKING AND ONLY THE REAR BEAKS WERE STOPPING THE CAR. IF I RECALL THE FIX CORRECTLY, THEY REPLACED SOME PART CALLED THE "BREAK ACTUATOR" SINCE THEN, NO PROBLEM HAS BEEN NOTED

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
