Summary of Complaint

2010 toyota prius brake booster failure. according to multiple resources online, there have been known issues with this part from Toyota across multiple models. After recalling only a small portion of vehicles due to this failure, complaints have been filed with nhtsa to address toyota's lack of corrective action regarding the vast amount of vehicles utilizing this technology. this is a dangerous defect that caused my brakes to malfunction during a cross-country trip. my brake and ABS lights suddenly came on, and i could tell my prius handled differently. the brake pedal became hard to depress and stop time increased drastically. i am having a mechanic diagnose and repair this issue costing no less than $1200 in austin, TX. i would like to make a complaint to toyota for not recalling all the models with this issue and instead choosing to recall a minute fraction of potentially defective vehicles.

VIN: JTDKN3Du1A0****

Summary of Complaint

While driving at highway speed on Interstate 87 in New York, the 2010 Toyota Prius suddenly lost power while multiple warning lights on the dashboard illuminated, along with a "Check Hybrid System" notification. The engine would operate but at significantly reduced power. I drove it to an independent garage to identify the diagnostic trouble codes, which included P0A94 and P324E, an inverter problem with the hybrid battery and a problem with the intelligent power module. The currently is currently awaiting a confirm diagnosis at a Toyota dealership in New Jersey, but the problem is exactly what thousands of other 2010 - 2014 Prius owners have reported, yet Toyota has yet to issue a recall to replace the inverter.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS JUST TOLD THAT MY 2010 PRIUS NEEDS THE BRAKE BOOST ASSEMBLY (CYLINDER AND BOOST) AT A COST OF $2,570. IT WAS CAUSING MY 4 MONTH OLD, 12V BATTERY TO DRAIN. I THOUGHT THAT WAS OUTRAGEOUS SO I LOOKED INTO IT AND FOUND OUT THERE WAS AN "ENHANCED EXTENDED" WARRANTY ISSUED (NOT A RECALL) , BUT FOR MY VEHICLE IT EXPIRED APRIL 2020. ANOTHER ISSUE THAT I UNCOVERED THAT THIS PART ALSO CAUSES THE PRIUS TO LURCH FORWARD WHEN BRAKING AND YOU HAPPEN TO DRIVE OVER A BUMP. TRAIN TRACKS, OR POTHOLES WHICH IS A SAFETY ISSUE. I HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED THIS WITH MY PRIUS. FORTUNATELY, I HAVE HAD NO ACCIDENTS SO FAR. I HAVE READ THAT THERE HAVE BEEN ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY THIS ISSUE. TOYOTA SHOULD STEP UP AND FIX THE PROBLEM BEFORE PEOPLE ARE INJURED DUE TO THIS DEFECTIVE BRAKING SYSTEM. MY DAUGHTER DRIVES A 2015 PRIUS. IS ANYTHING MORE BEING DONE? OR ARE THEY GOING TO WAIT UNTIL MORE ACCIDENTS HAPPEN? I STUMBLED ACROSS THIS ISSUE WHEN MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS 12V BATTERY REQUIRED FREQUENT JUMP STARTS. I REPLACED THE BATTERY ($300) DEC 2020. PRIOR TO THAT, I CALLED AAA AND GOT A JUMP START. BECAUSE OF COVID, I WASN'T DRIVING THE VEHICLE DAILY (WORK FROM HOME) SO IT WAS ASSUMED THE CAUSE WAS THE VEHICLE SHOULD BE DRIVEN FREQUENTLY.

VIN: JTDKN3DU1A0****

Summary of Complaint

I OWN A 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS WITH 97K AND IT IS IMMACULATE. IN MARCH 2019, THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER (AN ELECTRONIC COMPONENT IN THE DASHBOARD CONTAINING THE GAS GAUGE, SPEEDOMETER, AND GEAR POSITION) STOPPED WORKING ENTIRELY ONE DAY UPON STARTING THE CAR. I RESEARCHED THE ISSUE AND IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT A FAULTY CAPACITOR ON THE LOGIC BOARD WITHIN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER IS THE CULPRIT. TOYOTA CAN REPLACE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER BUT ONLY AT MY COST AND FOR OVER $1000. TOYOTA ISSUED A WARRANTY ENHANCEMENT NOTICE TO EXTEND MANUFACTURER WARRANTY ON THIS INSTRUMENT CLUSTER PROBLEM, BUT IT ONLY APPLIES TO 2004-2009 MODELS. THIS ELECTRONIC ISSUE HAD NOT BEEN ENTIRELY RESOLVED BY TOYOTA IN LATER MODELS AS MANY OTHERS ARE FACED WITH THE SAME ISSUE. AM I MONETARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REPAIR OF THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER? DOES NHTSA HAVE ONGOING SUPPORT TO PRIUS OWNERS FOR THIS ISSUE? SHOULD I FILE A SMALL CLAIMS LAWSUIT? *TR
