car   Power Assist Brake Hoses, Lines/piping, And Fittings problem of Lincoln Town Car

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Lincoln Town Car is 1LNHM82W53_. My 2003 Lincoln Town Car was slowing (foot off gas, coasting) down off-ramp from freeway because the stop light at the bottom of the off-ramp was red. When I began to apply the brakes to come to a complete stop, the car lurched forward violently as the front brakes locked completely, causing the car to slide to a stop. I could not move the car forward or backward in gear, and could not get it to coast in neutral. The car could not be manually pushed from its resting spot and I had to have it winched onto a flatbed tow truck and taken to the Lincoln dealership. The repair manager told me after investigation that the lining inside the brake lines leading to the calipers had been slowly flaking off into the brake fluid. When sufficient amounts had collected in the fluid they acted like a check-valve, allowing fluid into the calipers to actuate the brakes but would not allow the fluid to return and the brakes could not release. The repair consisted of replacing both front brake lines and both caliper units, costing over $600. Only moments before the brakes locked my car had been at speeds of 55 - 65 mph on the freeway. Had I needed to apply the breaks while at those speeds, the results would have been devastating; my car would have been sliding out of control in heavy freeway traffic and likely would have led to severe injury or death of my family members or other drivers/passengers. The Lincoln dealership searched for recall and/or safety bulletins from the manufacturer and could find none. I'm infuriated by this ~ it is an apparent design and/or manufacturing defect, admittedly seen several times before over recent years by the mechanics at my local dealership, yet nothing has been done to address it. I suspect that it's not a "severe" enough situation yet because there have been no deaths reportedly linked to the catastrophic failure I survived. It was Wed., Sep. 27, 2006 when this power assist brake hoses, lines/piping, and fittings issue occurred.

car   Power Assist Brake Hoses, Lines/piping, And Fittings problem of Mercedes Benz ML430

The vehicle having this issue was a 1999 Mercedes Benz Ml430. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 4JGAB72E2X_. I own an ml 430 Mercedes Benz 1999. The transmission failed with only 116,000 miles on it. I called mbusa and they refused to offer "goodwill" in assisting with repair. The cost of repair is over $5,000. 00. The owner's manual states that the Ml430 supposedly has a permanent fill of automatic transmission fluid so regular checks and changes are not required and for this reason the dipstick has been omitted. How can the consumer be responsible for this if we cannot perform maintenance on the part? (consumer also reports a ruptured brake line and a problem with the catalytic converter. ). This problem occurred on Wednesday, August 6, 2003.

Currently the suspension part of the car has gone and that will cost another $2000 on top of the $7000 I already put into it.

Volkswagen does not stand by its customers at all and I will never ever buy from them again and will tell people I know the car is a piece of crap.

car   Power Assist Brake Hoses, Lines/piping, And Fittings problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The car involved is a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta. I recently bought a brand new 2003 vw Jetta tdi at the end of November. On the day of the incident my car first started losing power, I noticed the pick-up wasn't as good as normal, secondly I started noticing the heat gauge went up as my car started over heating, thirdly I was almost home going down the off-ramp and when I put my foot on the brake to stop, the brake made a popping noise and then the brake hit the floor. I pumped the brakes and put the car in nuetral and was able to stop, as I began driving the car would not pick up any power and it felt as if the car was pulling against itself, I could not even get my car to go above 15 miles an hour in second gear. I drove the rest of the way home in 2nd, and with no brakes. When I made it home I thought there was a fire under my car because of how hot it was, the smell of burning was awful and as I got out of my vehicle there were chunks of creamy grease dripping from my car. I called roadside asst. And had them come to my house and tow the vehicle to a local dealership (overturf Volkswagen). After several days of trying to find what the problems was overturf decided they could not find a problem with my vehicle. My husband and I had to force them to look into the braking system. Overturf explained to us that what happened to me out on the highway was typical and not to be concerned, I knew differently and enforced the fact that they needed to check the braking system. After several hours of debating over the fact that the breaks didn't need checked, they test drove the car again and the car reinacted the problem. In the end, my brake booster and master cylinder had to be replaced. Luckily my car still is under warrenty, but the car only had 10,900 miles on it, something like the whole breaking system should not fail with as little as mileage as the car had. One week later the car gets picked up and the next day my cruise will not set. I now have another appointment to get my cruise control fixed. The failure date was 08/25/2003.

car   Power Assist Brake Hoses, Lines/piping, And Fittings problem of Volvo V40

The vehicle involved is a 2004 Volvo V40. There was crash involved with this problem. Vehicle identification number (VIN): YV1VW27534_. On April 13, 2005 at approximately 4 pm, I was backing my V40 Volvo 2004 wagon out of a parking space at the kossman garage, liberty avenue,pittsburgh, PA, going slowly because it was a tight space, when my brakes did not work, at all. Despite pushing my brakes as far as they would go, the car did not stop, and crashed into a concrete support beam, crashing in the entire back window and denting the back bumper vertically where the tall concrete beam hit it. Thank goodness, no people were hurt, and I was not injured either. No other vehicles were damaged, because the beam was directly behind me, thank goodness. The Volvo headquarters inspected the car and said there was nothing wrong, but there was indeed something wrong with the brakes. Through my insurer, amica, I became aware of the reported hydraulics pro blem with brakes on certain V40 Volvo 2004 cars. I also found a website showing a November, 2004 recall notice required to be sent by the national traffic and motor vehicle safety act to owners of such vehilces, but I never received such a notice. What is more, even after my accident, the company has never told me of such a problem. I found out today about this, thanks to my insurer who researched this. The car is now being repaired, at my and my insurers expense, although it may be due to the faulty brakes noted in the recall. I think there is some response needed from Volvo for not informing me of this recall, for indicating it was my fault, and for not being willing to even send me a memo based on their evaluation of my car. My insurer is also wanting to know what their response is. This problem occurred on Wednesday, April 13, 2005.

car   Power Assist Brake Hoses, Lines/piping, And Fittings problem of Cadillac Seville

The vehicle was a 1998 Cadillac Seville. Just after leaving home and driving at 30 mph I applied the brakes and the pedal when to the floor. I determined that I had a massive brake fluid leak just to the rear of the right front wheel. Problem: one of two rear brake lines that are located on the top of the frame rail had been worn through by constant rubbing on the front anti-sway bar. The lines are routed over the top of the sway bar and one of the lines was pushing down on the top of the sway bar. The bar had worn a semi-circular area out of the bottom of the brake line, to the point of failure. I repaired the line and took the defective section of the line to my dealer. I also had the system fully checked and the repair inspected. The dealer said that they would contact the regional offices of Cadillac to inform them of the failure and its cause. I understand that the failure occurred after 166,000 miles on a 1998 sets, but, brake lines should never be in contact with a moving assembly, a sway bar which rotates). This might be an assemble error on just my car but the lines are formed to clear the bar and were held in place by frame mounted "clip blocks". Everything was mounted in the correct factory positions but this line was pushing down on the sway bar. If it happened to me it might happen to someone else. Please be aware that I filed a phone report on November 1 . I received a form from you today 11/9/04 the reference number on the form is 10099163. After reading the narrative/description on the form I am stunned. After 15 minutes on the phone with your representative, not one thing on the form is correct. Whoever I spoke to is, to put it bluntly, an idiot. Do you really think that I would file a report because my brakes were worn out? I would hope that other reports are not totally wrong as is the case for me. I would appreciate a call from a supervision at your earliest opportunity. Frank culmone - president t. D. C. Inc. Cell 818 216 5862. It was Monday, November 1, 2004 when this power assist brake hoses, lines/piping, and fittings issue happened.
