Brake Master Cylinder problems of the 2002 Jeep Liberty



Four problems related to brake master cylinder have been reported for the 2002 Jeep Liberty.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem 1
Failure Date: 08/14/2014

Driving along behind several other vehicles, the weather was warm and the roadway was dry. Due to a red light, vehicles ahead rapidly slowed to a stop. I was traveling at about 30mph and applied my brake pedal to avoid hitting the slowly moving vehicle ahead. My vehicle failed to slow down and I pumped the brakes to no avail. I turned to the right and continued to pump the brake pedal. The brake finally caught and the vehicle came to a stop within two feet to the right of the stopped vehicle ahead. It resembled the feeling of abs on an icy road, but road conditions were excellent at the time. I have been extremely cautious driving this vehicle since the brake failure. There is good brake pedal and the master cylinder is filled with brake fluid. I am uncomfortable driving this vehicle and after reading a multitude of other mishaps by other 2002 Liberty owners, this is a dangerous malfunction.

Failure Date: 05/25/2005

While driving down the street I went to use my brakes to stop at a light, they went all the way to the floor. I slid into the intersection. I thought maybe they were wet . . . Went to next taffic light and pumped the brakes they dropped to the floor again. I drove my car to the nearest brake place. They test drove it and stated in maybe an intermitten failure in the master cynlinder or something else, their is no warning, work sometime . . Did not other. They put the 2002 Jeep Liberty 4x4 on the lift and found that the rear wheel cyndliers has leaks in them. This car has been a problem since day one with multiple reports to you. It has 55,000 miles on it and the brake pads where good, wheel cyndlier in both wheels leaking brake fluid. Also claim may also be a intermitted problem in the master cyndlier. No mastercyndliers availabe, well cyndliers I could get. . . Lemon.

When braking to slowdown pedal becomes spongy. After 5-8 seconds braking action stops. This does not happen when braking to attempt a complete stop. Dealer determined that master cylinder needed to be replaced, but part was not available.
