Are Failed Brakes a Common Auto Defect?

- Vehicle Defects
While not overly common, braking system defects can and do occur. Recent examples of poorly designed braking systems include the recalls of:
- 1.5 million Toyotas due to defects in the brake and fuel pump systems.
- 119,072 Chryslers for a defect in a fuse for the antilock braking system.
- 130,000 Cadillacs for a problem with the brake hose fitting.
As a Dallas vehicle defect attorney who often works on motor vehicle cases, I know just how much damage a defective vehicle can do. While recalls can go a long way toward preventing serious Texas motor vehicle accidents, I can’t help be wonder why so many vehicles have to be recalled, and why auto makers are producing so many flawed cars and trucks.
