 On saturday, march 13, 2010 around 4:30 to 5:00pm, my wife jenny devereaux exited nw 5th court from i95 to nw 71 street in miami, florida. as she was approaching the stop sign on 71st street, she commenced to press the brakes. to her demise, after pushing the brake pedal to stop, the vehicle, a 2007 toyota tundra crew cab did not stop, instead, automatically increased speed to over 20 mph. she was forced to make a left turn on 71st street to avoid an accident or from crashing until a 1990 to 1994 green ford explorer going at speeds well over 50 mph on nw 5th court coming from the east to west, rammed/crashed into the front passenger side of the toyota tundra as my wife was making the left trying to evade traffic and make the tundra stop. his ford explorer completely totaled the tundra. i then arrived at the scene to find my wife with serious injuries and took her to the er. i was so glad to see she was alive and was able to carefully transport her to the hospital. if someone would have crashed into the driver side or a front end collision occurred, my wife would definitely have not survived. i feel, god was on her side that day and gave her a second chance at life. the man in the green ford explorer could have slowed down and stopped, but did not. maybe, if he didn

 I own a 2007 toyota tundra (purchased new on march 07) i noticed around june of 2009 that the vehicle vibrates when braking at speed between 40 to 50 miles. took the truck to the dealer where i purchased it from on september 24, 2009 , the service advisor said that there are rust on the frond disks and the rear drums and it they need to resurface the front disks and rear drums. truck then had only (15576 miles), i paid $418.12 for the repair, advisor said it is not covered by warranty. on feb. 2, 2010 i contacted the toyota consumer experience center in ca, they would not acknowledge there is an issue, and she gave me a case no. and said i should talk to the service manage at the dealer ( i did not contact him, because i felt i get no satisfaction). yesterday on march 10, 2010 there is a new report about rust issues on the 2007 tundra's; and its brakes. this happened to my truck especially after such a short period and only 15576 miles at the time i took to the dealer for repairs. i am now very concerned not only about the brakes that already started to rust after a short period, but also about brake lines, under carriage etc. *tr

 Tl*the contact owns a 2007 toyota tundra. when he made a sudden stop while driving 60 mph on the highway, the rear tire locked and the vehicle spun around. whenever the roads were wet or covered with ice he lost traction, the abs light illuminated and the vehicle shut down. the failure usually occurred when he started the vehicle. the vehicle also accelerated when he shifted into four wheel drive. he took the vehicle to the dealer three times for the failures. the dealer stated that since the diagnosis did not locate a failure code there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. the dealer did not attempt to repair or replace any parts related to the failure. the vin was not available. the failure mileage was 20,000. the current mileage was 34,000.

 2007 toyota tundra dc 5.7l limited. i was driving on the freeway and i went to pass another vehicle when i got into the next lane and another car changed lanes in front of me and i was forced to slam the brakes. the abs system engaged and slowed vehicle down , but the truck felt like it was being pushed forward... by this time i had enough room in front of me, so i let off the brakes and the truck jumped like i was holding my foot on the gas. i almost hit the car in front of me again. i slammed on the y brakes again and the abs system kicked in, and the truck was still trying to accelerate, but i held the brake hard enough that i didn't hit the car in front of me. at this point i had to do something. i stuck the truck in neutral and tried to get to the side of the freeway. when i got stopped i had 3 lights on ., brake, vsc, and a picture of a car with 2 crooked lines on it. i believed it was traction control. by now the truck was normal again but the lights were on so i took the truck straight to the dealer . *ak

 Since day one that i have purchased the truck i have complained that the brakes don't slow the truck down as it should. that you have to pump it at least one time for them to act normal when slowing down. some times it is over half way to the floor before you stop. and that is with out pulling a load. when i talked to the dealership (jay wolfe toyota of k.c) was told that it was magic brakes , i have had to go back to the days of old where you give it a pump then it works. i have almost rear ended several people. these brakes are dangerous. and i paid $50,000. for that. they did not consider this to be a problem that maybe i needed to get use to the truck. *tr
