Soft brakes on my 2007 Toyota Tacoma. It seems that the truck not responding to braking as you try to stop. I had a couple of close calls but luckily no accidents. I searched on the internet to see if others are concerned about the brakes on these trucks and it turns out to be a major issue. Car and driver magazine reported the same problem in there February 2007 issue. I believe that these brakes could cause injury and it should be investigated.

This is not a failure, but something I see as a safety issue.. when I am stopping at a stop light/ stop sign and am in driv with the air conditioner (A/C) on the truck will surge forward and I have to push the brakes down harder. This only happens when the A/C is on, and seems to come from the increase in engine rpms when the compressor kicks on. This is very unsafe and could cause me to rear end someone.
