    Bought a 13 Prerunner DC about 2 months ago and have noticed an occasional rumbling noise and vibration in the brake when I apply pressure to the pedal. Usually occurs when I apply initial (gentle) pressure during deceleration and then quits abruptly before I come to a complete stop. It also seems to be random and not related to the speed I am traveling before I apply the brake. Anyone else have issues with this? Is it the ABS kicking in? Just seems strange especially on a new vehicle with less than 2500 miles on it.

    Help/advice much appreciated.
