BRAKE FAILURE - AS I DRIVE TO WORK EACH DAY THERE IS A PLACE WHERE I AM TURNING ONTO A DIFFERENT ROAD TO GET TO WORK. AS I APPROACH THE TURN I BRAKE TO SLOW DOWN AND I ALWAYS HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD AND/OR A POTHOLE CLOSE TO THE INTERSECTION. AS I HIT THE AREA, MY CAR SHOOTS FORWARD AND IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE LOST MY BRAKES. I CAN RECOVER QUICKLY BY KEEPING MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE, BUT IF I WAS CLOSER TO THE INTERSECTION I COULD OVERSHOOT IT AND HIT SOMEONE OR SOMEONE COULD HIT ME. I MENTIONED IT TO THE SERVICE MANAGER WHEN I GOT MY FIRST OIL CHANGE AT 5000 MILES AND HE SEEMED VERY UNCONCERNED AND HE SAID IT WAS PROBABLY THE ABS BRAKES FAILING BECAUSE THE TIRE LOST CONTACT WITH THE ROAD. WELL I ALSO HAVE A 2002 HIGHLANDER AND HAVE NEVER HAD THE PROBLEM WITH THIS CAR.
