Failure Date: 04/06/2010

Intermittent brake failure at start. Depress brakes, either from driveway in reverse or starting forward after leaving driveway, and brakes do not work. Depressing brakes feels like power braking system is not engaging. Have to pull over to side of road, and after a few minutes, brakes return. This has happened periodically over the period since I bought the car new, December 2009. The consumer experienced an intermittent brake issue that was evident from the first year of ownership. Upon starting the vehicle in the morning, there was brake failure until the vehicle warmed up sufficiently for the problem to be resolved. He would generally catch the problem before exiting his driveway, but there were times the problem persisted upon shifting into forward gear. The consumer had the vacuum pipe replaced. The consumer referenced NHTSA action number pe08005, in which he believed was closed prematurely. Updated 08/27/14.
