SERVICE BRAKES

12/6/2017 - BURKBURNETT, TX
I TOOK MY 2010 PRIUS IN FOR AIRBAG WORK & THEY ASKED HOW LONG I HAD BEEN DRIVING W/ MY BRAKE WARNING LIGHTS ON. THEY HAD NOT BEEN ON PRIOR TO THEN. THEY HOOKED UP A COMPUTER & SHOWED ME THAT THE VEHICLE HAD BEEN STARTED 31 TIMES SINCE THE WARNING WAS 1ST DETECTED. THEY SAID THERE WAS MOST LIKELY A LEAK IN THE BRAKE BOOSTER SYSTEM. THEY RESET THE WARNING, I DROVE FOR A DAY & IT CAME BACK ON AGAIN WHILE DRIVING AFTER ABOUT 10 STARTS. AFTER THE WARNING LIGHTS CAME ON AGAIN, I NOTED AN IMMEDIATE & SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN BRAKING RESPONSIVENESS & VEHICLE CONTROL...STARTED PULLING TO THE RIGHT. THIS WAS ON THE HIGHWAY WHILE DRIVING STRAIGHT. I TOOK THE CAR IN TO A LOCAL TOYOTA DEALER FOR FULL DIAGNOSTIC & THEY SAID THAT THEY'RE WERE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE EXACT LEAK LOCATION, BUT THAT THEIR TECH ORDER SHOWS TO JUST REPLACE THE BOOSTER WHICH WILL COST ABOUT $3,300 O REPLACE.
