Warning lights for vehicle skid control, anti-lock brakes and parking brake are consistently on reporting a failure.

The contact owns a 2001 Toyota Sequoia. While the vehicle was parked, the contact noticed rust under it towards the rear. A few years later, while having the vehicle serviced, the contact was informed that the undercarriage was severely rusted. She was also told that the parking brake lever fractured and there was an unknown pipe leaking from under the vehicle. The leaking pipe was repaired but the severe rusting and fractured hand brake were not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 40,000 and the current mileage was approximately 75,000.

problem #2

Parking brake needs constant adjustment to be effective. The parking brake is completely unusable after less than 2,000 miles after an adjustment. I have asked Toyota about this several times, but have never received an effective solution or answer to the problem. Since I very rarely use my parking brake, it is very easy to not know that it does not work.
