The car was a 2001 Hyundai Elantra. The VIN of the car is KMHDN45D81_. The next day after purchase and the first time I used the auto in reverse there was a loud clunk from the rear right side of the brakes. It sound like the brake shoes were loose and the retaining springs pulled the shoes into proper alignment when the self adjusting brakes came into operation. I was on an approch ramp at 55 miles an hour to merge at 65 to oncoming traffic. I was looking back for on coming traffic, I look up and a car was stopped, I slammed on the brakes. The car finally stop inches from the auto ahead. No skid mark. The wheels didnt lockup. I brougt the car in. On advise of the factoru the cleand up the rotors, replaced the front pads. This a positive indication that they are aware of such a problem. Upon a test drive on my own I found I could not lock up the brakes. Later I took the car back and had the service manager test drive the car with me. He also could not lock up the brakes. He said he test drove 2 other Elantras and they reacted the same. Police measure speed at an accident by the skid marks left. If I were to get into an accident they would find no skid an assume I didnt even apply the brakes!!! these are not anti lock. I'm worried. I need help before I'm killed and the accident report says, he didnt even apply the brakes. There were not skid marks and the police could only speculate at what speed he must have been traveling. H e must have been drunk, had a heart attack or passed out. It was 03/27/2001 when this brake drum shoes/linings issue occurred.

car   Brake Drum Shoes/linings problem of Toyota Tundra

The VIN of the car is 5TBBT44182_. Manufacturer refuses to service faulty brake system while under warranty - 2002 Toyota Tundra 2/03-I took my 2002 Toyota Tundra to a dealership in scottsdale, az (right Toyota) with concern over brake pulsation. The mileage on my vehicle was 32,000 miles. The dealer informed me that my truck was due for a 30,000 mile service interval and checking brakes was normal procedure. I received an invoice noting my front brakes were 90% worn & rear brakes were 40% worn. The dealership offered to replace the front pads for $400. I declined and had my brakes serviced elsewhere 1/13/04-I took my truck to a second dealership in phoenix, az (camelback Toyota) for the 60,000 mile service interval. The dealer performed the service and in the process of checking the brakes noted the entire brake system should have been replaced due to two technical service bulletins (#br004-02; #br003-02) the condition of the rotors and drums were warped, with excessive wear. The dealer wanted to replace the brake system. They said that the required service should have been performed under warranty with the tsbs. The mileage limit on those tsbs was 3 years or 36,000 miles. Since I was over the mileage requirement, yet had originally brought my truck in for this exact problem prior to 36,000 miles Toyota offered to cover the parts if I paid the $1,100. 00 in labor. I refused because this problem was alerted to Toyota prior to 36,000 and was mis diagnosed as worn pads I called Toyotas corporate services number at 800-331-4331 with all the details of this case. They have refused assistance. Toyotas internal reference number for this is 200401090758. I have documentation (the 30kmile service invoice) that notes I had brake issues prior to the expiration of the TSB warranty covering the brakes. It has been provided to camelback Toyota, and the factory is aware of the issue, yet they still refuse to honor their own policy for replacing a brake system that is unsafe. The failure date was Friday, Jan. 9, 2004.

car   Brake Drum Shoes/linings problem of Toyota Tundra

The vehicle is a 2002 Toyota Tundra. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Toyota Tundra is 5TBRT341X2_. Vehicle purchased 5/2002. Brakes pulsating & vibration while braking have resurfaced numerous times, had front rotors replaced and then resurfaced again after the replacement, yet the pulsating and vibrations continue to recur approx 3-6 miles after any repair work. Problem seems to be rear drum and front discs not working cohesively. Front discs have all the breaking burden. No failures yet or injuries because we are so worried that we brake far ahead of time to ensure we stop on time with all the vibration and shimmying going on. This issue happened on 09/18/2007.

car   Brake Drum Shoes/linings problem of Volkswagen Passat

The vehicle was a 2001 Volkswagen Passat. 1. Front and rear brakes inadequate for vehicle--had to have brake work at ~20,000 miles and again at just under 42,000 miles (this has never been a problem with any other car). Brakes repaired/parts replaced twice. Car should be recalled by manufacturer for brakes 2. Sunroof +/- windshield drain(s) became blocked and leaked and flooded passenger footwells, with risk of damage to transmission. This is a manufacturing defect with this make and model and has been widely reported on the web. Vw needs to recall cars for the problem with blocked drains/leakage and damage to vehicles. Cost to vacuum water out of footwells below the carpet > $600 with no guarantee that problem will not recur 3. Vw Passat has a known problem with sludge build up in engine and consequent engine failure--I have not (?yet) had the problem but feel that vw guarantee to repair problem only if owner can prove oil changes every 3000 miles in an unreasonable abnegation of duty. This is a design flaw and the company should have to recall all cars with the problem and repair at no charge without being able to shift blame to consumer. Now having to use expensive synthetic oil for oil changes on a very frequent basis. The failure date was 04/03/08.
