car   Brake Popping Noise problem of Chevrolet Tahoe

The vehicle is a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe. When I applied my brakes as I backed out of a parking spot in my 2003 Tahoe I heard a popping noise and when I applied my brakes a second time my break pedal went down to floor. I was able to crawl home as I wasn't far. Took a look under car and all my brake lines are rusted and one for sure is leaking. My Tahoe is as I type at a shop waiting on pricing for parts that can only be purchased thru Chevrolet. I'm praying that it is not to expensive but the ballpark figure I was given is about $1000 to replace all four lines. Debating of just having the one replaced and hopefully gm will come to their senses and recall these problematic brake lines. Thank goodness I wasn't going any faster as my daughter was in Tahoe with me. This brake popping noise issue occurred 01/27/2014.

car   Brake Popping Noise problem of Ford Fusion

The car is a 2010 Ford Fusion. The parking brake freezes in freezing weather. You can still lower (release) the parking brake handle, the warning light in the dash would go off, but the rear right brake stays engaged. This leaves the driver to believe that the brake has been released when in fact it hasn't. This happened to me this past winter. The car felt sluggish as if it was dragging something. About 10 minutes into driving we smelled a burnt smell and heard a metal popping noise from the rear right wheel. We stopped at a gas station to find out what was happening. The right rear brake was burning hot, the burnt smell was very strong, and it continued to make the metal popping noise as it was expanding due to the excessive heat. We had the car towed to the dealer and was told that this problem has to do with the design of the parking brake cable. We were also told to not use the parking brake in winter or it likely would happen again. This is a safety issue that Ford needs to address on because it can lead to the car catches fire. The failure date was Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013.

car   Brake Popping Noise problem of Nissan Armada

The car involved was a 2004 Nissan Armada. As many, many other have stated on the Nissan forums, this vehicle has some dangerous braking issues. We have had our Armada for about 4 years and have experienced this issue at least nine times. Thankfully for us, it has not happened while we were on the freeway at high speeds or in a situation where we had to stop instantly. Here is an explanation of our issues: while applying the brake pedal we immediately heard a grinding and popping noise, as well as noises indicating that the abs was activating off and on. The pedal was very soft and kicks back multiple times. The braking effectiveness was severely diminished. We have to pull over, turn the vehicle off and on again before we can continue driving. I find this to be a sever issue which is going to get someone killed, if it has not already. More than a few class action law suites have been filed for this issue in the titan truck, Armada and Infiniti qx56 as they all share the same platform and parts. It was Jul. 22, 2013 when this brake popping noise issue occurred.

car   Brake Popping Noise problem of Subaru Impreza Wrx

The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Subaru wrx. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is JF1GE74668_. I have been noticing a creaking and popping noise from my clutch/brake pedal assay for some time now and have found it to be the brace that holds the clutch and brake pedal to the firewall of vehicle is spot welded in 2 places at top of bracket and the spot welds have cracked and broken and the brace now moves around and the clutch and brake pedal bind and stick. I have since noticed it getting worse and noticed the 4 spot welds on the bottom of the brace have cracked and broken also. As a auto technician I see problems with vehicle all the time and this is a huge safety concern if the brace as to break off completely the vehicle would loose braking capabilities and the ability for the clutch to disengage the engine from the transmission in an emergency I have noticed on multiple forums that there are a lot of owners with the same problem. I feel as Subaru should perform a recall/repair for this issue as to not have vehicles being unsafe to drive. If needed I can supply pictures of my vehicle and the point of failure. This brake popping noise issue occurred 01/01/13.

I have ran off in a ditch due to brake failure. To stop me from hitting a car. Stop fast on dirt road to avoid hitting a deer and my brakes would not work until the pedal hit the firewall . This is not right and the Suzuki company should have to look into the problem and make repairs. . As for me I drive slower then the speed limit and stay away from other cars as much as possible. . . I do not care if I receive any help in this matter. . . But someone needs to know there is a problem with the entire brake system starting with the shocks all the way to the bearings.

car   Brake Popping Noise problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The car was a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta. The VIN of the problem Jetta is 3VWSP69M63_. I bought my car at the end of November. Drove it off the lot with 9 miles on the vehicle. At the time of breakdown on July 25, 2003, the car had 10,900 miles on it. The current mileage on it now is 13,000 July 25th was a very hot day. I believe it was up to 110 degrees that day. I had noticed my car running at a substantial lower power than usual, but I assumed it was because of the heat and that I had my air conditioning on high. I had to do some errands in town then I headed home, which is about 30 minutes away from the tri-cities, at this time I did notice loss of power going up the on-ramp to the interstate, but still did not think too much of the fact. I was half way home when I noticed that my car was losing even more power, the cruise quit and my speedometer went from 75 to 50 mph and that is when I noticed that my heat gauge was extremely high. I also found it odd that the inside of my car had not cooled off, but was getting warmer. I headed towards the off-ramp and as I was down shifting and applying the breaks, my brake pedal made ;puffy-popping noise and then the brake pedal collapsed to the floor. I put the vehicle in neutral and pumped the brakes to get the vehicle to stop, when the vehicle stopped, I smelled heat, or like something burning. I thought it was a fire around town. Pulling away from the off-ramp, I could not get any pickup speed with my car. The car felt like it was pushing to go forward and also pulling itself back at the same time, as the vehicle tried to pick up speed, it would pull back and forth. The gas pedal was all the way to the floor and I couldn't get any speed. I could only shift into second gear and the vehicle could only maintain 15 mph. As all of this was happening, I was turning off everything I thought took power, air conditioner was the first thing off when I started noticing the car overheating and losing power, then the radio, these did not help. This issue happened on Tuesday, July 15, 2003.
