A variety of braking issues have been reported by those who own or lease the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. Concerned drivers share experiences of brakes that take too long to engage or fail to respond altogether. While the manufacturer has not issued a formal recall to address this issue, those who have experienced such problems are hoping other drivers of this make and model will be on the lookout for similar braking issues.
One driver shared a complaint of how their 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid took an excessive amount of time to slow down while the vehicle was traveling along at 75 mph in the rain. After a few attempts to slow the vehicle, the car finally responded and came to a stop before an accident occurred. Another consumer reports that their vehicle will randomly engage the brakes while the car is in cruise control mode. According to one frightening account, a driver was behind the wheel and moving along at a speed of 50 mph and tried to apply the brakes. However, the brake pedal fell all the way to the floor, and the vehicle failed to brake in a timely manner. Many other owners have complained that their brake pads have worn out prematurely.
