Numerous complaints about defective braking systems continue to arise from those who own or lease a 2017 Toyota Prius V. Reports of brake pedals that fail to engage when depressed and engines that accelerate without warning when the brake pedal is engaged have cropped up in recent months. The manufacturer has issued four separate safety recall campaigns so far, one of which concerns a defective parking brake cable. However, many customers continue to experience other types of braking system issues without clear solutions.
The driver of a 2017 Toyota Prius V stated that they were traveling approximately 20 miles per hour and applied the brake pedal when approaching a traffic light. However, the brake pedal failed to respond, falling to the floor when depressed. Unfortunately, the vehicle sailed into the intersection and crashed into another car. Other reports of similar braking system failures continue to arise from concerned Toyota customers. For now, they continue to wait for permanent solutions to these concerning issues.
