WHILE APPLYING THE BRAKES TO STOP AT AN INTERSECTION ONE OF THE FRONT TIRES WAS OVER A MANHOLE COVER AND THE CAR SKIDDED OVER IT LIKE I WAS BRAKING ON A PATCH OF ICE. AS SOON AS I WAS PAST THE COVER THE BRAKES ENGAGED AND STOPPED THE CAR. I NOTICED THIS OCCURRING EVERY TIME I WOULD BRAKE ON AN UNEVEN SURFACE WHERE THERE WAS SPACE BETWEEN ONE OF THE FRONT TIRES AND PAVEMENT. I HAD BOUGHT THE SAME MAKE, MODEL AND YEAR VEHICLE FOR MY SON 11 MONTHS LATER AND NOTICED THE SAME PROBLEM WHILE TEST DRIVING IT. WHEN I QUESTIONED THE SALESMAN ABOUT IT I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS THE WAY THE ABS WORKS AND THAT IT WAS NORMAL. ON 11/20/2014 WHILE CHECKING THE AIRBAG RECALL LIST I NOTICED A RECALL FOR THE SAME PROBLEM THAT I WAS HAVING, RECALL ANNOUNCED 2/9/2010, NHTSA REF # 10V03900 SO I CALLED TOYOTA CUSTOMER SERVICE 1-800-331-4331 AND WAS TOLD THAT NEITHER CARS' VIN# SHOWED IN THE RECALL SO IT COULD NOT BE HAPPENING AND I WOULD NOT BE COVERED UNDER THE RECALL. THEY REFERRED ME TO A TOYOTA DEALER WHO TOLD ME THAT THE FIX WHICH WAS (REPROGRAMMING OF ABS CONTROL UNIT MODULE) WOULD NOT COVERED IN THE EXTENDED WARRANTIES OF EITHER CARS. I SHOULD NOT BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DIAGNOSTICS AND REPAIRS OF A KNOWN SAFETY PROBLEM WHICH HAD A RECALL. I UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT THE DEALERS' FAULT AND THEY SHOULDN'T BE HELD FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE EITHER.
