Toyota owners rely on smooth, consistent braking feel and performance to get around safely. But like any vehicle, brake components wear out over time and mileage. At Precision Auto Care, our ASE certified Toyota specialists have the expertise to diagnose and repair any brake issue you’re experiencing, from basic pad replacements to complex ABS system faults.

Whether you drive an older Sienna or a brand new Camry, we’ll get your Toyota’s brakes working properly again using quality OEM or aftermarket parts. Read on to learn more about the common Toyota brake problems we fix to keep local drivers safe.

Worn Brake Pads (All Toyota Models)

With enough miles, the brake pads will simply wear down from friction, resulting in reduced stopping power and loud squealing. We measure pad thickness and resurface or replace them as needed. This prevents rotor damage while restoring quiet braking with confidence.

Warped Brake Rotors (All Toyota Models)

Over time the rotors can become warped and uneven from heat cycling. This causes annoying vibration and pedal pulsation. We machine or replace warped Toyota rotors to eliminate vibration. Proper rotor condition is key for smooth, stable braking.

Spongy Brake Pedal (1997-2019 Sienna, 2007-2019 Camry, 2007-2019 Corolla)

A spongy brake pedal that sinks to the floor is extremely unsafe. Common causes include fluid leaks, air in lines or a failing master cylinder. We’ll perform a full brake inspection and rectify the root issue promptly to maintain proper hydraulic pressure and pedal feel.

Brake Fluid Leaks (All Toyota Models)

Whether it’s a seeping master cylinder, leaking brake lines or worn caliper seals, fluid leaks reduce braking capacity. We’ll identify the exact leak source and replace any damaged seals, lines or components. Topping off fluid levels prevents complete brake failure.

Sticking Brake Calipers (1997-2019 Sienna, 2007-2019 Camry, 2007-2019 Corolla)

Corroded or stuck brake calipers cause uneven pad wear, pulling and reduced stopping power. We lubricate and rebuild seized Toyota calipers. Excessively damaged ones get replaced with quality, lasting components to evenly distribute braking forces.

ABS Control Module Failure (2004-2010 Sienna, 2009-2015 Corolla, 2009-2015 Venza)

When the ABS module fails, warning lights illuminate and the system may stop functioning properly or at all. This affects steering control under hard braking. We diagnose Toyota ABS issues and replace faulty control modules to maintain this critical safety system.

Parking Brake Cable Stretching/Breaking (1997-2019 Sienna, 2005-2019 Tacoma, 2009-2015 Venza)

Frayed, stretched or broken parking brake cables reduce the parking brake’s holding capacity. This allows vehicles to roll freely on hills. We adjust stretched cables and replace damaged ones as needed to deliver reliable emergency braking when parked.
