1. I LIVE IN MINNESOTA. AFTER THE FIRST BIG SNOWSTORM WHEN I WAS BRAKING ON SNOW AND ICE, THERE WAS A VERY STRONG BURNING RUBBER-LIKE BURNING SMELL, AND THE BRAKING CHANGED. I STARTED SLIDING THROUGH STOP SIGNS AND INTO INTERSECTIONS WHEN ON ICY PAVEMENT. I WAS VERY CONCERNED AND TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP ON DECEMBER 12. THEY REPORTED THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CAR. 2. ON JANUARY 5, I WAS ON A TOTALLY ICED OVER STREET IN PARK RAPIDS, MINNESOTA. I MADE A LEFT TURN, THEN WAS SLOWING DOWN TO MAKE A RIGHT TURN INTO A PARKING SPOT. I WAS GOING VERY SLOWLY. I DEPRESSED THE BRAKE, BUT THE CAR FAILED TO SLOW DOWN. I KEPT SLIDING AND HIT THE CEMENT PARKING MARKER, WHICH PUNCTURED THE FRONT OF THE CAR (IN THE BUMPER AREA). 3. NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE, AND I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR. I HAVE CONTACTED MY INSURANCE COMPANY, WHO HAVE SUGGESTED THAT I ASK TOYOTA TO COVER THE DAMAGES. I HAVE FILED A COMPLAINT WITH TOYOTA, BUT AM STILL WAITING FOR A RETURN MY CALL. I WILL BE CONTACTING MY DEALER TODAY.
