I've got an 07 PreRunner. Nothing but happy with it so far. Tonight, I'm pulling into the garage and the ABS kicks in right when I cross into the garage and the truck won't stop. The brakes start pulsating and the truck will not stop. Long story short; the front of the truck was in my kitchen.
The garage was dry and not icy at all. The driveway was not icy. No reason for the ABS to kick in at all. It is very cold out, maybe 10 or so, but this shouldn't affect anything, should it?
I mean I'm pissed that I have an enormous hole in my house and the front of my truck is busted, but I'm happy because no one was on the other side. I'm hoping my insurance treats this is a property damage loss and I only have to pay the deductible for everything, but part of me now wonders if this was a malfunction. ABS as I understand it is suposed to kick in ONLY when the car cannot otherwise stop due to hazardous conditions. Other than the low temperature, there weren't any such conditions. Do I have a legitimate beef with Toyota here, or was the ABS just cold?
Even if something malfucntioned, how do I prove it....?
