problem #1

Jan 222008

Avalon 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,000 miles
While driving 10mph, car suddenly stops, motor running normally. Collared pin in master cylinder failed causing brakes to seize with ABS and asc failure. If I had been on a freeway, I would surely have been backended or skidded on ice out of control with no way to recover.
