Service Brakes problem #3
The car is a 2009 Toyota Corolla. The VIN of this vehicle was JTDBL40E29_. The front brakes produce a very loud rattling noise, whenever the brakes are applied and its almost as if the car is not going to stop and cause an accident. I am afraid the brakes are going to completely fail one day and cause an accident. When I took it to the dealer for a checkup, the dealer indicated that Toyota is investigating the noise, but it might be too late before they do anything. Please help by investigating this issue. This problem occurred on Wed., Mar. 21, 2012.
Service Brakes problem #4
The car involved was a 2009 Toyota Corolla. VIN of the vehicle was 1NXBU40E39_. I have had this Corolla for about 3 years, average about 700 miles per week - drive it daily. I have had no significant issues with it until the past month or so in which I have experienced two "sudden acceleration" events. In both cases I was traveling at a very low speed, about 10 mph or so in parking lots. While coasting / braking with my foot on the brake pedal, suddenly it was as if the brake pedal turned into an accelerator pedal! I felt all of the back-pressure the brake pedal normally has leave and it went almost completely down to the floor. At the very same instant the engine revved and began to accelerate and the car "leaped" forward. In both cases this lasted only a few seconds then things went back to normal. There were no indicator lights on the panel warning of anything wrong. In both cases my foot was clearly on the brake pedal and nowhere near the accelerator pedal. I visually inspected the floor mat and there was absolutely no interference between it and the accelerator pedal. This car has already had all of Toyota's "recall" remedies applied to it and could be easily ascertained by examining the maintenance records at butler Toyota of macon, georgia. I would like it if someone could examine the car's computer (not the Toyota people for obvious reasons)to see if these events were recorded or not. Until now I have liked this car very much in every way. However, considering all of the recent reports and now my personal experiences twice I am very much concerned about the car's safety. It was Friday, February 10, 2012 when this service brakes issue happened.

Service Brakes problem #6
The car is a 2009 Toyota Corolla. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1NXBU40E29_. Bought used 2009 toyotoa Corolla (5 speed manual clutch) vehicle in mid 2011. Noticed that the gas pedal, break and clutch are oddly very close, and gas pedal seems to stick, which seems to cause error in shifting/ acceleration/ DE-acceleration, especially when using in between gears. Not sure what that is all about, or whether or not there has been a prior complaint about this or recall, but I think it should be brought to the attention and fixed by Toyota for safety reasons. This problem occurred on November 1, 2011.
Service Brakes problem #7
The vehicle involved was a 2009 Toyota Corolla. Crash was involved with this problem. I was driving straight on the mass pike in framingham, MA, and my car began to lose control. I neither hit anything nor did I lose control of the car. The brakes stopped working and I could not turn the steering wheel. This resulted in my car swerving out of control, hitting the barrier and flipping over. My car landed directly on top of 2 of the 6 air bags I have in my car, and not one airbag deployed after barrel rolling my car. My car is now totaled and I am undergoing physical therapy for severe whiplash to my back and neck. My insurance company has considered the accident a human error, yet I did nothing to cause the accident. My friend who has been a car mechanic for over 20 years feels that it was a mechanical flaw on the vehicle, and does not see how the accident could have been caused by me. I would like to talk to someone regarding a possible manufacturer's error on my new but totaled 09 Toyota Corolla. This service brakes issue occurred Sunday, July 27, 2008.
Service Brakes problem #8
The car had a crash. We bought a 2009 Toyota Corolla in oct of 2008. Noticed the touchy steering, but was told that was normal by the Toyota dealership. My daughter was driving it on a side street in huntington, wv when she hit a pot hole or a manhole traveling at about 15 to 20 mph. The steering locked up and she hit a parked car. It broke the abs wiring harness and caused $10,994. 79 damage to car. We then found out that the tires were bald at 15,000 miles and the brakes were very thin. Toyota had just service the car at 13,000 miles and did not tell me the tires or the brakes were bad. We do not know exactly what caused the steering to lock up. The repair shop could not tell us either due to the extensive damage. This problem occurred on February 16, 2009.
Service Brakes problem #9
The vehicle involved was a 2009 Toyota Corolla. Crash was involved with this problem. Dear sirs, I had a mechanical failure caused vehicle collision where two safety hazards should call public alert. On Aug. 24, 2009 as I traveled on highway 93 south, I saw the vehicle in front of me took a sudden slow-down or stop, about 30 feet in distance, even as I floored the brake pedal, my 2009 Toyota Corolla did not have any brake function at all, even not a resistance force at the pedal. My vehicle reared another vehicle inside the tunnel of 93 south, under normal travel situation: road surface and lighting. And then before the deployed airbag from the driving column could have blocked my body movement forward , it exploded, the inside of my vehicle filled with smoke and funny smells. Fortunately, nobody got serious injured in the collision. Since my Corolla is a new car under 4900 miles, this was the only time I experience the sudden mechanical failures. My insurance company, metropolitan property, has inspected the vehicle, but did not specify any mechanical failures. Toyota north America also had their personnel inspected the vehicle upon received my report to them, but they may not take any responsibility to pass the information to the public, as there is also liability issue within. So far no repair work has been done to the vehicle, yet. The simultaneous failures of both brakes and airbag could be very serious safety hazards, please take note of this case and make it available to the public. If possible, I would appreciate it if you could, or let some third-party mechanic to, have my vehicle inspected. Thanks. This issue happened on Aug. 24, 2009.
Service Brakes problem #10
The VIN of this vehicle is 2T1BU40E99_. I purchased a 2009 Toyota Corolla in November 2009. I had issues with the brakes slipping to the floor 2 weeks after purchase. This would happen when I would try to slow the car down or come to a stop. It happened sporadically. I had many near collisions and went off the road into snowbanks several times to avoid hitting other cars. Toyota kept saying nothing is wrong with the car after checking the brakes. In September, I took the car in for the hydraulic service brake recall. This did not fix the problem. On December 8 & 9 the brakes went to the floor twice when I tried to stop at stop signs. I almost got killed avoiding other cars at intersections. Once again, the dealership tried to duplicate the situation and found nothing wrong with the car. I told them I am terrified to drive an unsafe car which will end up crashing at some point from a faulty brake system. They said they can not do anything. I said the recall part is not effective and the consumers need to be aware. All I asked for was a new Corolla and I would continue all my payments. I do not want to drive an unsafe car on the road (nor should other Toyota owners). The dealership is in burlington vermont. It was Tuesday, December 8, 2009 when this service brakes issue occurred.

Service Brakes problem #12
The vehicle was a 2009 Toyota Corolla. Crash was involved with this problem. My vehicle was involved in an accident and I belive that the manufacturer was at fault. I had my vehicle inspected for brake problems numerous times by the dealer and it was always said nothing was wrong. Well on Sep. 22,2009 my mother was driving my car while I was passenger and she says it would not stop. Now that I see others are experiencing the same problems I want the manufacturer to be held responsible because I have been dealing with these problems for two years now and it finally seems like something is going to be done about it. It took my car and who knows how many others. I gave the dealership many opportunities to remedy the situation at my expence. This service brakes problem happened on Tuesday, September 22, 2009.
Service Brakes problem #13
The car was a 2009 Toyota Corolla. I brought my Corolla 2009 in Nov 2008 . In Feb 2009 I took it to lansing ,mi dealer saying brakes went down to the floor. I had hard time to stop my car. They send me back saying nothing is wrong. There was a brake recall few months later. I am again facing the same problem. I avoided banging my car twice . I took my car to Toyota dealer . The service personnel instead of looking for problem said he can't help me put on the brakes as it winter. I told them I want to talk to his service manager. The service manager assured me that he will check the problem. The rear brakes were not aligned properly . Frankly I can't trust that car. I feel that cars 2 basic functionalities went wrong. 1. Brake 2. Gas pedal. If Toyota can't get 2 basic things right they should stop making cars. This issue happened on Dec. 9, 2009.
Service Brakes problem #14
This is for a 2009 Toyota Corolla le. Sometimes, after I hit the brakes, the car seems to stop gradually and the front wheels tend to shake heavily. (almost seems like the wheels are going to fall off). I took it to the dealer and they said that it could have been the abs kicking in. I am still not satisfied by the dealers remedy. They basically did nothing. The problem happens mostly on wet surfaces and light snow. But because of that, every time I hit the brakes, I have to pray the car to stop. It was January 17, 2010 when this service brakes issue occurred.

Service Brakes problem #17
The car is a 2009 Toyota Corolla. Crash was involved with this problem. About 5:30pm on Thursday evening (2/4/10), I was driving home n on silver lake blvd & 36 st. It was lightly snowing, the streets were wet and slippery, and I was driving under 15/mph going downhill. As I pressed the brakes, the car went faster, and did not stop until I badly hit the car in front of me and went over the curb. My car is a 2009 Toyota Corolla. About 2-3 months ago, Toyota sent me a recall notice for the brakes, much before the nationwide Toyota recall hit the media. And now, even after I did recall a few months ago, this is the second time that such a brake-related incident has happened to me ever since the recall. I feel that this accident is related to another brake defect of the newly-replaced/altered brakes, and would kindly ask for it to be further investigated. This service brakes problem happened on Thursday, February 4, 2010.

Service Brakes problem #20
The vehicle having this issue was a 2009 Toyota Corolla. Just got my recalled Toyota 09 gas pedal fixed ( 02/03/10) and ran through a red light (02/08/10) due to brakes not working and sudden acceleration of vehicle. Luckily there wasn't a car in front of me or anyone going through the intersection. I was not driving very fast and tried to stop at light, I was pushing the brake pedal and it just felt like it wasn't grabbing and I had it pushed to the floor and then my car made an accelerating sound like I revved it up and I went through the intersection. This service brakes problem happened on Monday, Feb. 8, 2010.
Service Brakes problem #21
While driving our 2009 Toyota Corolla on a slick, snow-covered roadway, a vehicle in front of my wife stopped rather quickly. She was traveling about 15-20 miles per hour, upon braking, the anti-lock brakes kicked in and seemed to completely disengage the brakes. The anti-lock brakes fired slowly, the pedal strongly resisted being pressed and the car kept on going, she had to swerve into a gas station to avoid rear-ending the vehicle in front of her. Two days later, it snowed again, and I was able to reproduce the problem on our street. Driving at a speed of 20-25 mph, I quickly applied the brakes and experienced the same resistance to pressing of the brakes, the same slow firing of the anti-lock system, and the same feeling of complete disengagement of the brakes. The car took nearly 120 feet to stop (this is a very gross estimate based on property sizes). After this experience, we tested the brakes on our Toyota rav 4 on the same road and got significantly better performance - the vehicle stopped in less than 60 feet (again, gross estimate) and did not exhibit the resistance to pressing or the slow firing of the abs. Upon taking the vehicle to a dealer, we were informed that everything tested fine and there was no problem and nothing to fix. The problem recurred again in similar conditions two days later. The dealer has offered to allow us to bring the car in on a day when a rep from Toyota will be present, but I feel that they do not believe us, and am not optimistic that they will be able to diagnose the cause. This issue happened on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010.
