Complaint - Service Brakes Air

WHEN I BRAKE WHILE GOING OVER A SPEED BUMP, THE CAR LUNGES FORWARD. PLEASE NOTE: I REALLY AM NOT SURE OF THE DATE. I BOUGHT THE CAR IN JULY OF 2009. THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME A FEW TIMES AND IT WAS SUCH A BIZARRE COMBINATION (ACCELERATING WHILE BRAKING) THAT I REALLY DIDN'T CLUE IN TO IT AS A CAR ISSUE RIGHT AWAY. WHEN I SAW PRESS ON IT AND DISCOVERED THAT IT WAS AN ACTUAL ISSUE AND NOT A "FLUKE" I CALLED THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT OF THE DEALER WHERE I GOT THE CAR (NORTH HOLLYWOOD TOYOTA). THEY BASICALLY REFUSED TO EVEN DISCUSS IT, SAYING THEY'D ONLY FOLLOW THE ORDERS OF TOYOTA CORPORATE. THEY GAVE ME A NUMBER TO CALL, AND OF COURSE, IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT ISSUES, THEY ARE SWAMPED. THE RECORDING INDICATED THEY WERE NOT ACCEPTING CALLS. SO NOW I HAVE A CAR THAT ACTUALLY HAS AN ISSUE AND CANNOT GET IT FIXED.

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