2006 Toyota Matrix 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 20,500 miles
I was driving on the Interstate at 60 mph with the cruise control on. When I started to exit I found I had no brakes. The exit road is down hill and while I try to control the car I tried the brakes several more time to no effect. After hitting a median strip, down shifting and using the hand brake I brought the car to a halt and turned off the ignition. When I tried the brakes, they appeared normal.
I had the car towed to the Portland (Maine) Toyota dealer who had 5 days before serviced the car, issued a Maine State Safety inspection sticker. And rotated the tires. The time of the accident was the first time I had used the cruise control since the servicing. Toyota said they could find nothing wrong.
have the same problem?
