And here we are 7 years later and there is now a recall on this part.
I don't see a recall on this, I just looked it up.
I believe my Brake Actuator is going out in my '06. It started making this "Barking Noise" when I pressed the pedal. Then over the weekend, my VSC, ABS, and Pressure Sensor light lit up. Also the BRAKE indicator light.
I saw there is a Toyota Service Bulletin on this and it said "it's an annoyance but stopping power is not affected". I haven't had a chance to take it in yet.
But judging by these comments, it looks like I might be in for a $2200+ repair job?
So, is this a safety issue? The car is only worth about $3K in good working order. I was going to get rid of it in 2017 and get a Volt or possibly the Prius Prime. But I don't know if I should just keep driving it around or not until then, get rid of it now.
I need a Plug-In hybrid or full electric in order to keep my "HOV Plate" from the state, I can't just go buy a new Prius.
