lots of miles, so I just it was normal wear and tear

my camry hybrid 2007 garage kept always noise when backing out of time dealer nothing dealer stated needs to abs actuator $ 3031.93 called sorry to say your responsible I think it was faulty from day don pelfrey

The early Denso actuators do to have disappointing lifespan too-high number of failures at young age. So far, has been OK — but I’ve had fluid flushed every of years because of Florida and the fluid’s tendency to adsorb and corrode parts. Time tell if that strategy be ultimately effective — but seen conventional ABS pumps and internally corroded by fluid had been allowed to deteriorate, so fluid as clean as possible like a good thing to do.

You do a web search — there are a of outfits that will the actuators, and warrant the units, at a substantially lower than replacement units. Used from wrecking yards are available — with risk involved that the will not have a very lifespan. Point is, less alternatives are available — at if you don’t confine your to the dealer.
