  • 57,828 miles


I own a 2006 Scion Tc with 57,828, miles. My warning brake light and warning ABS light came on; stayed on and is still activated on my dashboard for ABS and brake. The Toyota dealership technician confirmed that this safety problem is solely an internal defect of the ABS ECU system. When I took it in to the local Toyota dealership in lafayette, la. The certified Toyota/ Scion automotive technician indicated that this problem should not be occurring with a vehicle with such low mileage. Further, the technician indicated that if I continued driving the vehicle with this type of problem it could result in inactive ABS, and the ceasing of brakes if the system were to engage. Both of these outcomes are serious safety risks and could potentially be the cause of automobile accidents. It was not concluded whether this defect would engage the brake and ABS light for all vehicles; I am lucky that my light went on and that I went in to the dealership right away to have it checked out. I am not sure if other people would do the same, and they should be alerted to have this issue checked out.

I own a 2006 Scion Tc and have heard about the recalls for other Toyota models. I have heard a description of the prius braking issue and it sounds similar to issues with my Scion. When I hit a bump while breaking there is a skipping motion and a serious lag in breaking. I have brought it up with the dealer in the past and they said it was normal. What can I do to force the dealer or Toyota to investigate this matter?
