    I recently bought a 2010 Tacoma TRD. I drove it to the snow, engaging the 4WD for a day of skiing, and returned to the city the next day. For two days now, the brake pedal vibrates everytime its pushed firmly, even when the car's in park and not moving. It lasts about 2-3 seconds, vibrating the pedal, then stops. This occurs whenever you push the pedal, and didn't happen before the trip to the snow. Its quite annoying feeling a 3 second foot massage everytime i brake for a stop sign. Has anyone heard of a malfunctioning ABS on a brand new tacoma truck?

    Something may have happened to the ABS sensor during your trip and now it is activating every time you push the pedal for some reason. Just take it to the dealer and have them fix it for you under warranty. From my experience with my last car, ABS sensors are pretty delicate and are located close to the wheel. I screwed one of mine up on my last car just from rotating a tire that was rusted on a bit and banging on it too hard with the tire iron to get it off. They can even get dirty and malfunction until cleaned with a wire brush. Either way, dealer should take care of it for you. I wouldn't worry about it.

    If it is indeed pulsing with a vehicle speed of zero then it really needs a visit to the shop.

    I take it you have no malfunction lights on the dash of any kind?
