I WOULD LIKE TO FILE THIS CLAIM AS THE SAME INCIDENT DESCRIBED BELOW HAPPEN TWO TIMES IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS. THIS IS A BIG SAFETY ISSUE WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN FATAL. -- FIRST EVENT OCCURRED ON 8/17/2012 (ODOMETER 55899). BRAKE TOTALLY FAILED ON A FREEWAY AND ALMOST LOST MY LIFE THAT DAY. TOWED TO THE DEALER AND THEY REPLACED 1) BREAK CYLINDER ASSEMBLY PN#47050-47060, 2)GASKET, BREAK BOOST PN#44785-02060 & 3) BREAK FLUID. WHEN ASKED TO THE DEALER WHAT THE REASON FOR THE FAILURE WAS, WE WERE TOLD THAT THEY DO NOT KNOW THE CAUSE AND FAILED PART WAS SENT TO THE MANUFACTURER FOR INVESTIGATION. WE REQUESTED TO TELL US THE FINDINGS FROM THE MANUFACTURER BUT NEVER HEARD BACK AND SOON AFTER THIS INCIDENT TOYOTA HAD A RECALL FOR BREAKS. -- THE SECOND INCIDENT OCCURRED ON 7/16/2014 (ODOMETER 91965) AND SAME BRAKE FAILURE OCCURRED AGAIN AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.THIS TIME DEALER REPLACED 1) BREAK CYLINDER ASSEMBLY PN#47050-47140, 2) GASKET, BRAKE BOOST PN#44785-02060 & 3) BREAK FLUID. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SECOND TIME THE BRAKE CYLINDER ASSEMBLY PN# IS DIFFERENT. WE ASKED THE DEALER AGAIN WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR FAILURE OF THE SAME PART AGAIN BUT DID NOT GET A CLEAR ANSWER FROM THEM. WE WROTE SEVERAL EMAILS TO THE DEALER BUT NO RESPONSE YET AS OF TODAY (8/19/14). I AM A VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER. WHAT WILL TOYOTA DO IF THIS HAPPENS AGAIN? SOON OUR WARRANTY WILL EXPIRE AND IF THIS HAPPENS AGAIN WHICH IS A TOYOTA'S EXISTING PROBLEM, HOW IT WILL BE COVERED? -- HOPE TO HEAR SOON FROM TOYOTA.
