problem #1

  • 5,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Yaris. While driving approximately 70 mph on normal road conditions, the brakes failed to respond when the brake pedal was depressed. The vehicle failed to slow down and spun three to four times uncontrollably into the median. The driver stopped the vehicle and observed that the front and rear passenger side tires were flattened. The tire warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. There were no warnings or injuries and the vehicle was not damaged. The vehicle was towed to the authorized dealer for inspection and they stated that the front and rear passenger tires were punctured, which caused excessive air pressure leakage. In addition, the rims were damaged. The tires and rims were replaced; however, the technician was unable to determine the cause of the failure. The current and failure mileages were 5,000.
