All Complaints

WHILE BRAKING AT LOW SPEEDS (15 MPH OR LESS), ESPECIALLY UNDER WET ROAD CONDITIONS AND AFTER HITTING A BUMP (POT HOLE, ROUGH ROAD, ETC.), THE BRAKES TEMPORARILY FAIL AND THE CAR SKIDS, WITH LOSS OF POWER STEERING IT SEEMS AS WELL. I HAVE HAD THE RECALL WORK PERFORMED ON MY CAR, BUT IT STILL OCCURS. THE TOYOTA SOLUTION TO "STEP ON THE BRAKE HARDER" IS NOT ALWAYS A SOLUTION, ESPECIALLY AS THE PROBLEM SOMETIMES OCCURS NOT COMING TO A FULL STOP, BUT BREAKING DURING TURNING. THIS HAS HAPPENED AT LEAST 6 TIMES SINCE THE SO-CALLED RECALL "FIX" FOR THE BRAKING SOFTWARE WAS INSTALLED.
