HYBRID BREAKING SYSTEM. THE HYBRID BREAKING SYSTEM (ACTUATOR, ACCUMULATOR, & PUMP) ON MY 2010 HIGHLANDER HYBRID ARE FAULTY AND HAVE FAILED. MY FAMILY PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE FROM TOYOTA DEALER WHEN IT WAS APPROXIMATELY 1.5 YEARS YOUNG, AND HAVE PERFORMED ALL NECESSARY SERVICE AT CAMELBACK TOYOTA DEALERSHIP IN A TIMELY FASHION. (23 SERVICE HISTORY REPORTS SHOWN ON CARFAX.) OUR HIGHLANDER HAS LESS THAN 100K MILES AND IS LESS THAN 10 YEARS OLD (APPROXIMATELY 8 YEARS OLD). THE FAULTY HYBRID BREAKING SYSTEM IS A KNOWN ISSUE, THAT TOYOTA HAS ISSUED +LIMITED EXTENDED WARRANTIES+ ON AT LEAST 736K VEHICLES (WHICH WOULD COVER MY REPAIR FREE OF CHARGE IF MY VEHICLE WAS OLDER (+WEP-ZG1+ COVERS FULL REPLACEMENT OF BREAKING SYSTEM AT NO COST TO CUSTOMER FOR VEHICLES WITH 150K MILES OR LESS OR 10 YEARS OR NEWER) AND FULL RECALLS ON THE PRIUS BREAKING SYSTEM. CAMELBACK TOYOTA FIRST QUOTED ME $2,500 FOR THE REPAIR+ BUT THAT FIRST REPAIR WAS ONLY TO REPLACE THE ACCUMULATOR AND THE PUMP. THE NEXT DAY, THE BRAKE MALFUNCTION LIGHTS CAME ON, AND NOW THEY+RE QUOTING ME ANOTHER $2,064 TO REPLACE THE ACTUATOR. MY FAMILY HAS CARED FOR THIS CAR PROPERLY, AND DONE NOTHING THAT WOULD CAUSE A TOTAL BREAK MALFUNCTION. THIS IS A MALFUNCTIONING BREAK SYSTEM THAT TOYOTA (AND THEIR PARTS MANUFACTURER) NEED TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR. A BREAKING SYSTEM IS ARGUABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT SYSTEM ON ANY VEHICLE! THIS IS PUTTING MY FAMILY, AND OTHER FAMILIES AT RISK. I ASK THE NTSB TO FORCE A RECALL ON MY 2010 HIGHLANDER HYBRID MODEL. THANK YOU.
