BRAKES FAILED. 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS. 160,000 MILES ON VEHICLE. WHEN I STARTED THE CAR, I HAD NO BRAKES. WHEN I PUT THE CAR IN GEAR, I THEN HAD BRAKES. I HAD BRAKES WHEN I PULLED UP TO A STOP SIGN. AS I WAITED FOR TRAFFIC I THEN HAD NO BRAKES. WHEN I BEGAN TO MOVE I HAD BRAKES, BUT THEN AS I GAINED SPEED, THE BRAKES WENT OUT. I MANAGED TO STOP WITH THE EMERGENCY BRAKE. CHECKED THE BRAKE FLUID: COMPLETELY FULL. DEALER SAID THE MASTER CYLINDER WENT BAD. ORGINAL BRAKES ON VEHICLE; NOT EVEN HALF USED. HIGHWAY MILES ON VEHICLE. VERY HOT DAY. I BELIEVE IT IS ELECTRICAL, DEALER SAYS MECHANICAL. HAD THERE BEEN AN ACCIDENT, THIS INCIDENT WOULD BE LOOKED INTO. AS IT IS, NO DEALER WILL LOOK INTO A CAR THAT IS OUT OF WARRENTY. I COMPLAINED FOR 5 MONTHS ABOUT THE BRAKES WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT THE CAR NEW. DEALER TOLD ME THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE BRAKES. EVEN AFTER THE RECALLS, THERE STILL IS PROBLEMS WITH THE BRAKES. NOW I BELIEVE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE MASTER CYLINDER, -THE ELECTRIC COMPONENT PART OF IT- BUT TOYOTA WILL ONLY LOOK INTO IT WHEN THERE IS A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
