I WAS GOING DOWN A HILL (APPROX 20MPH) IN MY SUBDIVISION (NORTH ON HARTER FARMS RD) WHEN I SAW A CAR PULLING OUT ONTO THE ROAD FROM HIS YARD. I APPLIED THE BRAKES HARD FOR ABOUT 100YDS BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TURN INTO PALIMINO DR TO AVOID A COLLISION. I DID NOT MAKE THE TURN AND HIT A STOP SIGN AND THEN THE GUARD RAIL AT APPROX 5MPH. THERE WAS ABOUT 1-2" OF SNOW ON THE ROAD AND I HAD DRIVEN UP THE SAME HILL FROM A STOP WITHOUT SLIPPING A TIRE JUST 15 MIN PRIOR. I NEVER FELT ANY PULSATION FROM THE ABS DURING THE ATTEMPT TO STOP. AFTERWARDS WHEN I GOT HOME I ATTEMPTED TO STOP HARD (TO TEST THE BRAKES) ON LEVEL GROUND AND AGAIN NEVER FELT THE PULSATION FROM THE ABS SYSTEM. THERE WAS BRAKING BUT I FELT IT WAS GREATLY REDUCED. I HAVE NOT RETURNED THE CAR TO TOYOTA FOR THEIR RECALL YET. IF YOU WISH TO EXAMINE THE CAR YOU MAY. I AM SURE YOU CAN DUPLICATE THE RESULTS.
