While driving I was approaching a stop sign and depressed the brake pedal to stop. I kept pressing to stop but the pedal went all the way to the floor and I could not stop.

This is the second time this vehicle had breaking issues after the first event which was aprx 15000 iles ago the dealer said the problem was the master cylinder which they replaced. Action should be taken against Chrysler before someone gets hurt or killed.
