problem #3

May 102006


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
On multiple occasions, on either wet or dry pavement, the car failed to stop and continued on dangerously into intersections. Once the brakes were either applied or pumped the car continued to slide for at least 30 feet when going slowly to come to a stop at a stop light. The dealer on each occasion told me that there was nothing wrong with the brakes.
