Bummer Alex, I wouldn't let any grass grow under my feet getting that fixed! Let us know what they find and get back to us. To me it sounds like your master cylinder went. Did you check the brake fluid level? Good Luck.

Re: Brake Issues - Report your Date of Manufacture and VIN

I have a 2012 FJ 4wd. 111,750 miles. During panic stops the right front tire locks up. While the remaining tires brake normally. I suppose it may just be a defective or failed sensor on the right front. But i’ve not diagnosed it. I do feel the ABS system pulsing. However it’s not as pronounced as other vehicles i’ve owned with ABS. This behavior would be very concerning if one is pulling a trailer. Fortunately i drive more cautiously when pulling a trailer and have not needed to make a panic stop.

I have experienced the sudden full on braking immediately after applying mild to moderate brake pressure on a couple of occasions. I don’t recall the specific road conditions. I’ve not characterized this behavior further. Other than being unexpected i’d rather have sudden braking over none.

I’ve not experienced the under responsive braking issues other have reported.
