car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Chevrolet Suburban

The vehicle was a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban 1500. The master cylinder and brake line caused a complete brake failure. All the brake lines are severely rusted, compromised, and all must be replaced. Fortunately the failure happened in a restaurant drive through. Moments before pulling into the drive through, I was driving my daughter on a busy roadway with a 50 mph speed limit. I do not feel brake lines should be made of materials that can corrode and fail without any warning whatsoever. The truck is very well maintained. With non-corrosive metals available for brake tubing it is inexcusable from a safety perspective. The government needs to address this to prevent clearly foreseeable injuries and deaths. This problem occurred on Thu., May. 8, 2014.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Ford Taurus

The vehicle was a 2000 Ford Taurus. After purchasing this vehicle used for very little money, I had a lot of work done including some brake work. The brakes completely failed while my son in law was slowing to exit an interstate highway. My son in law drove the car off of the road, into a city park to avoid an accident. I spoke to several mechanics. All of them insisted that the whole brake system could not fail at the same time. A good friend of mine, who is not a mechanic, agreed with the mechanics that a total failure was impossible. This friend said he would drive the car for a while to prove to me that my son in law must have mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the gas. After driving the car for a couple of weeks, he had an identical experience - total loss of brakes. Fortunately, it happened as he was parking the car and was already moving very slowly. After that I had the master cylinder replaced since it was the only major part in the brake system that had not yet been replaced. Again, I spoke with more mechanics, including some Ford dealership mechanics. They did not think that the master cylinder could cause a total failure, but could not come up with anything that could do this. Within a couple of weeks, the brakes failed completely again. I was already worried that the problem might not be solved, so we had been driving extra slowly and carefully. I could not in good conscience sell or trade this vehicle so I took it to someone who could help me dismantle the car before junking it to make sure it did not return to service. This brake master cylinder problem happened on 08/09/2013.

The VIN of this vehicle was 19UUA76538_. My 2008 Acura Tl type-s, has the same braking problem as that of Toyota prius. It causes brief but frightening delays, especially in slow speed. The problem occurs inconsistently at various intervals. This has been an ongoing problem since I purchased the vehicle in February 2008. I took the car in to the dealership twice to fix the problem. They attempted to fix the problem by finding cloudy fluid in master cylinder and flushed the system. It seemed to work for a couple of weeks but the problem resurfaced. I complained to the Acura client services of inconsistent brake feel during slow and steady application of brakes. In April 2009, they sent a district manager to inspect the brake system. After the manager inspected the fluid level and drove my vehicle for 7 miles, he did not find any problem and stated that the vehicle operated normally. However, the problem still occurs at least 2-3 times a month. Unlike prius, the braking system delays that I experience occur on smooth, paved roads. It was 01/28/2010 when this brake master cylinder issue happened.

I took the vehicle to woodland hills keyes Honda and learned that the brake power booster was defective. This same vehicle was the subject of a recall of the master cylinder. Based on Honda's recommendations, the power brake booster is to be replaced if there is any leak. It is my position, that the master cylinder upon determining that it was leaking as implicit in the recall required that the power brake booster be replaced. Had this been replaced there would not have been a failure to the power brake booster. The failure date was Wed., May. 14, 2014.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Hyundai Genesis

The car involved was a 2011 Hyundai Genesis coupe. This has happened a total of 4 times since I have owned the car. The first happened a few months after purchasing the car, when trying to stop from 40mph at a red light. The brakes failed and I ran the red light avoiding any accident. I drove approximately 25 more miles with no occurrence the rest of the way home. Next morning when driving into the gas station as I hit the driveway entrance approximately 15mph I was braking and then brakes went to the floor and I had to pump the brakes several times before the pressure came back and I finally stopped. I turned around drove it to the dealer with no other issues along the 8 mile drive. Dealer checked all normal issues drove it themselves and were not able to find ?duplicate the complaint?. Approximately 8 months later after driving 25 miles on the freeway I was exiting my exit to work slowing down at approximately 30mph while braking and slowing down the brakes went to the floor and all pressure was lost I pumped the brakes and they worked. 2 weeks ago I was driving surface streets and while slowing down to make a right at a red light at about 30mph the brakes failed I had to pump the brakes again to regain pressure and I stopped as I rounded the corner into the cross walk. I have not been able to get it into the dealer yet. I have been driving a different car and parked this one until my schedule allows me to take it to the dealer. I have been looking on the Hyundai forums for information and this appears to be on the forums a lot. Several have resulted in accidents, even a total loss of one person?s car. The forums are saying that there is a voluntary recall and it has to do with the master cylinder, dealer replaces as the complaints come in. I guess I will find out. This problem occurred on Mon., May. 2, 2011.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Land Rover Discovery

The vehicle involved was a 2003 Land Rover Discovery. We were approaching the toll booths from the mass pike and my husband looked at me and asked me why we didn't have any brakes. I freaked out and didn't know what was going to happen. We were surrounded by cars and approaching the toll booth very quickly. We were able to slow down before we crashed, but we were and now are very nervous about driving this vehicle not knowing if this will occur again. The dealership fixed it over the next couple of days and said that a secondary air injection valve stuck open causing hot exhaust gases to flow through pipes, and melted vacuum line to master cylinder. We called Land Rover company and told them about the problem and they said they would research it to see if this problem had ever occured with any other vehicle. They returned our call later on in the week and said that it hadn't and technically, we didn't lose our brakes, they just weren't power assisted! can you believe that-we could have been killed!.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Lexus LX470

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Lexus Lx470. I started the car up after dinner. About 2 minutes later four warnings lights related to the braking system went off (abs vtrac brake vsc) followed by a long warning buzz and then a complete lost of braking power from the pedal and the handbrake. I was able to come to a complete stop and then tried to restart the vehicle to remedy the problem. It did not solve the problem and so for safety reason I called for a tow to the closest Lexus dealership. The dealer at first told me I have to replace the brake master cylinder which costs about $3000 plus tax. However 30 minutes later they called me back and told me now the car is working fine after they've driven it for about 5 miles and couldn't replicate the symptoms. So I went to the dealer and picked up the vehicle. About three days later, the same thing happened away while I was going about 15mph. At first the four lights went on, and then the long buzz. The car still had some brake power which I managed to drive it back into my garage when the brake power then lost completely. I think with vehicle like this, especially weighing about 3 tons, there should be a backup system which will allow the car to have some braking power even if the electronic ones went out. And the costs for replacement and "a single point of failure" for such a heavy family vehicle makes me wonder about the reliability and safety of Lexus cars. I am trying to decide whether I should have the brake master cylinder replaced or not, or should I trade in for a different vehicle. I understand there was a similar recall for is, RX, and ES. Would this be related also?. This issue happened on Fri., Aug. 2, 2013.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Lexus ES

The vehicle is a 2008 Lexus Es. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is JTHBJ46GX8_. Had to make a hard stop and the brake pedal faded badly. Pedal has become softer over time. Already had to pay to replace faulty designed rear pads and front discs. Lexus has a TSB on the squeaky rear pads but never let us know. It was a replace only if owner complained. 1 pad was badly worn, but the vehicle was out of warranty and Lexus would not do anything. With all the Toyota master cylinder issues under recall, I find it hard to believe our Es350 is not experiencing the same thing. Expensive fix that we cannot delay for safety sake. Engine is becoming noisy. Ticking sounds at times. This brake master cylinder problem happened on 02/18/2013.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Lincoln MKS

The car involved is a 2010 Lincoln Mks. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Lincoln Mks is 1LNHL9DR4A_. Brake pedal invariably collapses completely to floor when they are depressed causing the brakes to not properly function. This typically occurs upon startup, when the brake pedal is depressed in order to move the gear selector. I have experienced this problem over the course of several months. Other operators of the vehicles have noticed a clicking or popping sensation that could be felt by the driver during depression of the brake pedal. I decided to carry the car to the dealership after experiencing total brake failure temporarily while operating the vehicle on the highway. Due to the sudden lane intrusion by another vehicle, which required emergency braking and maneuvering, I experienced substantial underperformance of the brake system during brake pedal depression; there was very little brake pedal pressure. During this particular event, I experienced very similar brake pedal depression that I invariably experience during startups. The vehicle was taken to the local Ford dealership, where a defective master cylinder was diagnosed as the problem. However, the car was subsequently returned to the dealership (where it remains at this moment) because of recurrence of the brake pedal problem and improper braking system, which makes the car unsafe to operate. The dealership was unable to replicate the problem over the course of more than a week and informed me that they could not find anything wrong with the brakes. My concerns have been elevated to dealership management. This issue happened on Friday, March 1, 2013.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of SAAB 9-3

The brakes on my 2007 SAAB 9-3 aero sport combi failed while I was driving. In the first incident I was backing out of my driveway and attempted to apply the brake only to have no brake pressure at all. With the pedal pushed all the way to the floor the car failed to stop and I was forced to use the emergency brake and put the transmission in park to stop the vehicle. The dealership claimed the issue was a faulty brake booster check valve and repaired that part. I drove the car home from the dealership and at the first stop light after leaving the dealership I attempted to stop the car from 65 mph only to have no brake pressure again. I was forced to down shift and use the emergency brake to avoid hitting several cars. I drove the car very slowly back to the dealership and demanded they fix it. The car was in the shop two weeks for what they claim was a bad master cylinder. I suffered brake loss a third time and the dealer said there was nothing more they could do to help me so I parked the car in my driveway for 3 months while SAAB and my leasing company negotiated a buy back. I no longer have the vehicle. SAAB repurchased the car in December 2007. This problem occurred on Jul. 20, 2007.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Subaru Impreza Wrx

The vehicle involved was a 2008 Subaru wrx. I recognized a squeeking sound every time I depressed my clutch to shift the car. Having had an oil change, I wasn't scheduled for car maintenance for 3 months or 3,000 miles. When I took my car to my mechanic for service, I asked them to check the squeeking sound. The technician found a that the structure of the firewall at the clutch and brake pedal assembly was failing - the spot welds were shattered. The technician removed the wiper blade assembly and found that the pedal assembly flexes to the point of moving the firewall out at the clutch master and that the firewall is cracked at the clutch cylinder. After researching the issue, the technician learned the problem is inherent in this particular year and model, as well as in the 2009 model. The technician recommends removing the dashboard, brake booster, master cylinder, and clutch cylinder in order to identify and weld the broken pieces of the bracket that should be holding the clutch pedal assembly in place. This requires only welding and replacing the clutch pedal assembly, as well as flushing the brake and clutch fluid. The overall concern with this structural failure is that the degradation of the firewall and clutch assembly will create an issue where my safety is at risk when I lose the ability to drive the vehicle because shifting will fail. In a low or high speed situation, I would need to down or up shift my car to help avoid collision or lessen the impact of a collision. Without this ability, I put my life, my passenger's life and other drivers' lives in danger. Given that this is a widespread issue with the make, model and year, I believe Subaru should issue a recall. I am especially concerned to find that my particular car is on the pull down menu with the ntsb, and until my car started to fail, I heard nothing from the ntsb, Subaru or the dealerships regarding this issue. Response expected. It was February 7, 2014 when this brake master cylinder issue happened.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Subaru Impreza

The vehicle involved was a 2011 Subaru Impreza. The clutch pedal on my 2011 sti makes a loud creaking noise every time it's depressed. When I investigated the noise, I noticed that the entire clutch pedal bracket assembly (attached to the forward firewall) shifts approx 1/4 inch every time the clutch pedal is depressed. I found that the three spot welds securing the clutch pedal bracket to the forward firewall were broken. From the outside of the firewall, just under the windshield wipers, I saw the spot welds pulling away from the firewall every time the clutch pedal was depressed. This allows the entire clutch pedal bracket assembly to move, causing the creaking noise. If the bracket completely separates from the firewall, the clutch may become completely inoperative - especially dangerous while driving. This has also directly caused the failure of three clutch master cylinders in the last 6 months. 2 of which failed at freeway speeds leaving me with no clutch, and a hardly any braking capability. (the clutch and brake pedal are both attached to the same assembly, thus when the clutch does not work, neither do the brakes.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Suzuki SX4

The car involved is a 2009 Suzuki Sx4. Driving home from work my brakes failed, foot went to the floor and no brakes, then a moment later I had some, I was terrified but made it home. My husband did a test drive and tried filling up the fluid but realized it was not just a fluid problem. I called Suzuki customer service and told them we suspected the master cylinder. By now the car was out of warranty so they told me to have it towed to the dealership where they would inspect it and decide whether to pay for parts or labor or both or perhaps nothing at all. With my husband out of work we could not afford any repairs at all nor could we afford towing. So our mechanic cousin looked at the car and said it was definitely the master cylinder after 27,480 miles!! he replaced the master cylinder. I then wrote a letter to Suzuki thinking they would want to know this failed so soon, I told them this should never have happened, explained why I did not go to the dealership and told them I have the part we took off if they wanted to investigate. I heard nothing back. Today I spoke to them after getting a phone call checking on the original call and asking what happened? I explained to the lady on the phone everything and she said because I had the car done locally I could not get any reimbursement. I do not and am not seeking reimbursement! I told her I don't want anything from Suzuki but they should be aware a part failed so early and I have that part for investigation should they want me to drop it off. They didn't care! I am stunned! so I am putting in this complaint in the hope that perhaps I save another Suzuki owner dying because their brakes fail doing 70!! thanks. This brake master cylinder problem happened on 10/30/2011.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Toyota Fj Cruiser

The car was a 2008 Toyota Fj Cruiser. The dealer did replace my master cylinder and the pressure pump after the experience with the abs issues as others have stated, this was when the car was under warranty. It seemed to fix the abs problem with the long pulsing and basically the computer taking over the braking. I am still experiencing a musshy pedal and lack of braking when the car is driven over a longer period of time or during the summer months. However after a lot of research and paying attention to the symptoms, I am convinced this is a pressure and heat problem. I don't know why on a 5700 lb vehicle that they are using ceramic pads, dot 3 fluid and this pressure system, it just can't handle it. This problem occurred on March 1, 2014.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Volkswagen New Beetle

The car was a 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle. There was crash involved with this problem. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Volkswagen New Beetle is 3VWCR31C74_. The vehicle had a catastrophic brake line failure on the steel braided line off the master cylinder for the front brakes during a panic stop at highway speeds. The line has a rubber anti vibration ring placed on the hose , this was said to be "out of location" and the steel braided line wore against the "air box" in the area that burst. The anti vibration ring either vibrated out of location or was possibly moved/miss-installed. The vehicle had previous work done at a certified vw dealership on the master cylinder 2 years prior to correct a failed break power assist unit. This may have been a contributory factor but the dealership declined responsibility for the failure. During the accident the rear brakes continued to work correctly , the vehicle slowed substantially and the anti-lock could be "heard" to engage, the vehicle did not skid or lose control but was not slowed enough to keep from hitting the rear of the car ahead of me. It was Nov. 14, 2011 when this brake master cylinder issue happened.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Volkswagen Passat

The car involved is a 2003 Volkswagen Passat. I bought my 2003 vw Passat wagon brand new. In a span of 3 years I have had to replace my rear rotors and brakes 4 times and have yet to replace the front rotors and brakes and the car is at 77,510. I had the left rear rotor replaced Jan. 21, 2004, the right rotor April 1, 2004, both left and right rotor Nov. 23, 2004, and then both again July 11, 2005. I was very concerned about this from the beginning and stressed the recurring issue with vw corporate since my warranty was running out and the problem was still persisting. When it happened again at my regular check up in June of 2005, after only 7 months and 11,427 miles from the last time I changed the brakes and rotors, I raised some red flags and suggested that I lemon law the car, vw researched and found that "there was excessive heat on my rear brakes and that my booster rod was bent and not releasing rear brake pressure completely". On July 11, 2005 vw replaced the brake booster, master cylinder, rotors, and brakes. Which brings us to the present, I took my car to get my regular service and find out that I have to change my front and rear brakes and rotors. The front I can understand given that it is now at 77,510, but the rear brakes and rotors again after 18,500 miles? I have always felt there is something very wrong with this car and after research on the web and finding others are having similar problems, I know there is something very wrong with this car and when it comes to the brake system there is definitely cause for concern. Though it has only been at inconvenience at this time, I would like it resolved ASAP. With the exception of the brake pads, vw have not charged me for the rotors and though they have said there is not a problem with the rear rotors and brakes and they have been paying for the changes even though it is after my warranty so that leads me to believe that there are many complaints like mine and there has to be a problem. This problem occurred on Wednesday, January 21, 2004.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of BMW M3

The vehicle involved was a 2008 BMW M3. The VIN of this vehicle was WBSWD93598_. In a situation where the car is stopped and light pressure is applied to the brake (hvac is off) the idle of the car will fall below specification and the idle becomes rough. Even a very slight decrease in brake pressure will return the idle to spec. This would seem to me to be a problem with either the vacuum booster or the master cylinder. I have noted many others with the same symptoms in online forums. At the very least it is an emissions issue and at worst a safety issue. I am prompted to log this complaint given today's news of 328i brake investigations. I have called Bmwna to get no satisfactory response. It was Tuesday, September 10, 2013 when this brake master cylinder issue happened.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Cadillac DTS

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Cadillac Dts. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1G6KD57926_. I started the car, applied the brake, put it in drive and began to pull out of parking space. I applied the brakes and the pedal hit the carpet. I bumped the car in front of me. No damage. I towed the car to a garage and they found that the brake lines, 2 of them had rusted thru and there was damage to a third. The front calipers are also so rusted out that they cannot be adjusted to bleed the lines and the master cylinder is leaking. The entire system is rust effected. The car is a massachusetts car I just transported to calif. Gm should be responsible for these faulty vehicles and brake problems. To completely replace the brake lines will cost thousands. This is a major safety issue. If it had happened at highway speeds, it would have been very serious. It was 02/12/14 when this brake master cylinder issue happened.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Cadillac CTS

The car involved is a 2003 Cadillac Cts. This morning when I backed my Cts out of the parking spot to go to work I noticed the brakes were a little soft. I then parked the car and opened the hood to look at the brake fluid reservoir and noticed it wasn't completely full but there was still a sufficient level of fluid. I then looked at the ground and noticed a line of liquid that traced my movement backwards out of the parking spot and then back into the parking spot, this liquid was brake fluid. Imagine my surprise at having a second gm vehicle with a brake line failure 30 days after experiencing a brake line failure for the first time in my 40+ years of driving and owning vehicles. The first was a 2001 tahoe which I reported last month to NHTSA and which cost me over $1,000 to replace all of the brake lines. After work this evening I examined the Cts and discovered extreme corrosion in the two brake lines running from the master cylinder to the abs unit in the front of the engine bay. The corrosion is worst where the lines run behind the radiator and it appears both lines have failed. The lord must have been looking out after me because last night I drove 37 miles from baltimore on the interstate. Had the brakes failed then I imagine I would have been in a spectacular accident on I-95 that may have taken my life as well as others. Gm recalled the Cts for brake line corrosion by the calipers where the line connects inside a rubber piece. Nhtsa is investigating brake line corrosion on 1999 to 2003 full size gm trucks and pickups and I suggest the investigation be expanded to include all gm vehicles of this vintage as it appears gm used an inferior grade of steel in their brake lines in all of the vehicles. It was Monday, August 5, 2013 when this brake master cylinder issue happened.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem of Jaguar S-type

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Jaguar S-type. The VIN of the car is SAJEA01T53_. I purchased a S-type Jaguar 2003 June 11, 2002 from park place Jaguar houston, texas, I took the car in before 5,000 mile check up and complained about the brakes, a few months later took the car in for 5,000 mile check up complained about the brakes was told that I need a master cylinder, car was left with the dealership for a week. Months later the brake light came on and would not go off. Jaguar from national sent a wrecker to pick up the car and delivered it to park place Jaguar for repair. The car was in the shop for a week again. Had a tire to wear out due to faulty brakes, still nothing was done regarding the breaks, I was under the impression that the brakes had been fixed until January 11,2006 when I took the car in for it's 30,000 miles check up at 29,415 and was informed by zack adams the service advisor that I needed new brakes and it would be $585. 36 I thank god that zag finally saw the problem needed fixing. For the repair, I have receipts upon your request for the many of times the brakes were addressed for the warranty was over, it is evidenced that I was sold a car with faulty brakes. And Jaguar failed to provided me with the safety of my car for 2 1/2 years. If I had been a driver that rode the brakes constantly on the highway, I would be a fatality person. Jaguar was negligent in repairing my car safely and refuses to own up to their failure. Also the poorly quality of tires that I also reported to the service department and was not helped. I purchased new tires from discount services for $539. 09. The car was not safe and a traffic hazard, I contacted them several times regarding issue with car. It should not been 2 1/2 years to ge breaks repair when I started complaining 2 months after the purchased of the car. This issue happened on Wed., Jan. 11, 2006.
