Brakes Do Not Stop Effectively

The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that can result in improper brake fluid pressure control during events that activate the anti-lock brake, traction control or stability control systems. This could lead to loss of vehicle control. Dealers will inspect the brake actuator and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Pre-Collision System Activates Unexpectedly

The pre-collision system may activate while driving due to the radar equipped with the vehicle recognizing steel plates or roadway joints as an object that should be avoided. Dealers will temporarily disable the system as a precaution at this time, and will notify owners of affected vehicles a second time when a permanent repair procedure is available. Repairs will be made free of charge.

Toyota Recalls 2004–2010 Vehicles Due to Stuck-Open Accelerator Pedal

Toyota is recalling 2004–2010 models for an accelerator pedal that can get stuck in the wide open position due to problems with the floor mat. This may cause high vehicle speeds that make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which can result in a crash. In order to correct the problem, dealers will replace the pedals, alter the shape of the floor, and/or replace the floor mats. Toyota will also modify software on certain models to ensure that the brake overrides the accelerator in the event that both are applied.

The way they built and design these vehicles is disappointing. It will be my las...
I absolutely love my Lexus ES350! I had driven nothing but the S-Series Mercedes Benz for 15 years, and never wanted anything other than a Mercedes again. When the last one needed over $7000 in repairs (replacement of all vacuum pumps, air conditioning compressor, brakes and rotors, and the head gasket), my husband was not happy about buying another Mercedes. He encouraged me to at least drive...
