I have never own a vehicle from any manufacturer that had such a knocking sound from the vacuum pump.

It is my perception that the knocking noise from the vacuum pump is a safety hazard and that toyota corporation must replace the defective part. My vehicle have only 10,000 miles because of my illness and also because i do not feel safe driving it. I know i am a bit late to report this condition on my vehicle and that the warranty period have expire. But the problem persist, as a remedy i am requesting that all of the toyota vehicles that present this knocking noise from vacuum pump should be recall an repair under an extended warranty. Thank you
